  • Banner: letterhead Plymouth Pilgrims

    Posted by Bob Gilliland on August 28, 2002 at 1:50 pm

    Here was a banner I did for the recent International Letterhead meet. The 2’ x 8’ Black banner was provided by the host of the meet and a brief piece on the “Plymouth Pilgrims”. It was up to me to interpret it and produce it anyway I wished. I found some additional information on the internet about this group and came up with the following.

    The entire job was thermal printed on the Edge using Burgundy, Beige, Tan, and Black cartridges on White vinyl. I also used a product from ZeroNine called Shadow Cast to help give more realistic shadows in certain areas of the design. Lower left contains a montage of three “period” line art drawings to reflect a time line and add some additional interest in the overall appearance. I’m OK with the overall design but not ecstatic about it. A little more effort could have been put forth, but time just wasn’t on my side. (Of course, my own fault for that.)

    The banner was presented to some re-enactors that arrived Saturday morning. They really, really liked it. Guess that’s what matters the most.

    hi bob… like mike said great to see you back on the boards mate!

    excellent work on the banner… must have taken a while to put it together.
    i think signs that have had a bit of research done on them, the area or the company etc are all the more interesting.
    i like how you seem to have used and outline image of the town or a building
    from the past… (well hope thats what it 😳 )

    anyway, excellent work mate. 😉

    Was just scrolling thru some old stuff and found this gem.
    Didn’t Bob do a GREAT job?
    That was my great-great-grandfather’s regiment.
    The reenactors just loved the banner.
    Thanks for the memories!
    (that was my meet too!)
