I can only agree with Nic, Its badly applied, nothing is straight, and full of bubbles. So I refer to my first comments, maybe better to get a sign maker to do it for you, you would have saved some money, and got a better job to promote your company, instead of giving the wrong image. But well done...

I think you've done well for the design for a first try, I agree with others that it doesnt look that well applied, and the bubbles in the red would send me mad every time I looked at them, but that is something you gain with experience, and as the van is for selling wheels, not signs then it will ...

I think for a first attempt this looks ok and yes the phone number needs to be lifted away from the door slider and the number on the back also needs lifting up away from the rear window. However I do like the use of colours, the main thing to remember is to give all your wording space to breathe a...

A fault with dtp fonts is that they have too much space on either side of the "1". Closing them up makes all the difference to appearance.


I know what you mean about the kerning, but I kind of like it spaced out :cool:

Just an update I found with the vinyl I was supplied had a shorter length core than the actual vinyl itself, causing the ends to crimp whilst in transit, hence the spear shapes as it was unraveled.

I tried to ease them out with a felt squeegee (6") is the biggest I have, it didn't work.

The 2M was rolled tight onto the cardboard core.

The text is vectorised as I am using the text tool in Corel, signcut is a cutting utility and works when I use Inkscape but doesn't work with Corel.
I have also updated the plugins for sign cut.
