    Hi this is the first installation of this kind that I’ve done (Big thanks to
    Mike @ Mulberry Signs for supplying the built ups). I know it looks off
    centre but that because the client decided on an all white shop front
    rather than painting the left hand column in a contrasting colour (I
    need to mention that to him). I also did the vinyl for the central window,
    while the shop fitters supplied the lousy dull vinyl for the interior while I
    was away 🙁 .

    Lots of fun with this job ie waiting for the painters to get the front painted,
    then waiting for it to dry. Finally installed by 10pm in diminishing light,
    light rain and on the eve of 8hr drive to Portsmouth before flying out to
    Sicily from Heathrow at 6am the next morning. Still it made the holiday
    all that much more enjoyable 😀 .

    Anyhow just thought I’d share and give Mike a plug at the same time.

    Cheers Pete

    nice work pete/mike
    pete i dont think anyone will notice the off centre, at the end of the day it isnt off!
    think if you moved it furtehr left, it would look way out….
    you dont good mate..

    nice built-ups mate.. i have some coming up with a bloody hidious font into the bargain, it has to be LED back-lit too.. i love getting invloved in this type of work, gives me pllenty practice. but does eat allot of my days time..

    anyway.. ill post pics when done 😉

    Nice job.
    I wish they would paint that side part in a contrasting blue.
    It would really make things pop.
    Doesn’t look a bit off center to me,
    but as you can see I’m cross-eyed.

    Thanks for looking everyone, even though (or because) I’m still part time
    I’m really enjoying my foray into the sign world so far.

    This was job number 7 and so far all my jobs have been quite different,
    some large, others small but I’ve learnt lots from each.

    It’s wierd to think that none of this would have happend had I not stumbled
    across this place with it’s tutorials and helpful members.

    So thanks Rob and everyone else for getting me started.
    Cheers Pete
