    Here are a couple of jobs, one was for a TV show , abit like the BAFTA or TV show awards, I was just given the logo to work from, but if you look at my dogs you can see its quite big

    and this job I finished last week, its an electrical store group like Currys or Comet in the UK, and they just celebrated 20 years and had a big conference to celebrate, this was 2m high and abit under 3m long

    Hi Henry
    Have to say Im very impressed by your work… 😀
    What kind of material is used? Is it done in polystyrene?
    How long would signs like this take you to complete.

    I particularly like the second one. Something very different about it. 😉

    Nice one mate

    They look great Henry. Did you cut them out on the Bandsaw? How were they going to be fitted?

    Martin you’re gonna have to get this idea of “but there doesnt seem to be any call for it round this way” out of your head, thats because your customers aren’t signmakers, have never seen this board, don’t read Signcraft so haven’t a clue , now this is true when George Stephenson first told of his dream of people travelling great distances on his “Locomotives” at great speed people just laughed and said that the human body wouldn’t be able to stand travelling at 30mph DUH!
    Look mate if they don’t know about them, how the heck are they gonna come in and ask for it!
    If you want some of this work then make one for the shop, change your shop sign or add another dimensional sign along with the existing one, that way you’ll learn something new and have fun too, you’ve only got to sell one mate to get the ball rolling.
    Make one for yourself and next time a customer comes in looking for a sign, show him this brilliant sandblasted/dimensional sign you have up on the wall!
