    sounds good to me oreo, I think like you said the picture doesn’t really do it justice 😥

    one small criticism if I may, the top margin looks a little too small in my opinion, but as long as you’re happy thats OK

    Looks good to me Oreo, I have to agree with Andy though the margins towards the ends especially at the top are a bit small, maybe the angle the picture was taken at though.
    I always try to avoid ovals with long words if I can to avoid this sort of thing. If you had made the oval less squashed you would have had large empty areas in the middle. Mind you you could always fill these with a nice artistic flourish.

    YEp Rob It Was A Table Router As For The Margins i agree For The First Time I Can Blame Some one else I was In The Hospital when this letters were mounted And Not By choice and this is what i would of down i was going to senter the “S” Then center the other letters so the margins would be right or pleasinto the eye but itdidn’t happen that way so when i sae it it was already up but the customer likes it but i agree with all of you all but here is another view to this pic

    just shows how you can be decieved by a photograph, I had imagined this to be a much smaller sign within the shop not the main facia.
    Nice work Oreo.
