Thought the finish on that red looked a bit special.

I like your hands on approach Steve, do you do work this way because you enjoy it more
or for better profit margins?

Oh yeah, how did you fix the lettering?

both Pete, having funs OK but the moneys better :lol: fixed through from behind, the letters are 18mm thick, 4mm spacer and the boards 9mm thick, so thats ermmm hold on .................... 31mm phew crap at maths :lol: I use 25mm screws, easy.
I charged £450 plus for this sign, total time about 8 hours spread over 5 days, allowing drying time for paint etc, material costs less than £50

What i mean steve is, in the second picture i can see screw caps, and you say the lettering is fixed on from behind, so you must have screwed the lettering into the back board then screwed this to the existing facia - right??

If so is the back board that you screwed the letters to mdf or foam pvc?

Actually i don't why i'm asking, were talking Steve Broughton, of course it has to be mdf/medite :lol:

Thanks Jill, those "witchy circles" are called "Bullseyes" and you can buy them from any decent glazier in this country, I've one in the stable door in my kitchen.
Rob the grey is actually a lot lighter than it shows, might have been due to the fact that it was really overcast and I had to muck about with the exposure to get a decent pic without flash.

Nice Work Steve

Spraying the letters is the way I want to go. I have to hand paint all my letters. Prime, undercoat then gloss. Fiddly job.

Much better finish and better protection with spraying
So one day I'm going to treat myself to a spray kit

Oh! What is that little badge in the corner of the sign :D
