    Here’s a pic of a job that I did yesterday in Mars.
    I don’t care for glass work.
    I think it turned out OK tho. The door picture doesn’t
    show up well because of a flyer stuck inside the glass.
    The alphabets are from Letterhead Fonts,
    and I used SignGold Florentine Swirl.

    the font looks right cowboy style!!
    how long did it take you to do?

    About 15 minutes to design, re-kern, etc.
    20 minutes to cut the black & 10 to weed.
    45 minutes to cut the $200/5yds SignGold and about 45 mins to weed.
    (I wasted 18″ of it by accident! 👿 )
    1 hour and 45 minutes to stick (wet application)
    I should have used hi-tack transfer tape on the SignGold.
    Would have rather painted/gilded it!
    I got the one font free at a Letterhead meet.
    It’s called Esoteric.

    Blimey, all you’re short of is Wild Bill Hiccup and his posse of merry cowgirls! 😀 Really smart though Jill!

    I’d love to do windows like that 🙁 I end up with the white letter brigade, well no, thats unfair, they’re good customers but the work is all same ole same ole 😕 I really want to do something different, and I definately like the signgold.

    Btw will that Signgold stuff conform to a vehicle like regular vinyl? I’ve been asked to do some fuel tanks, motorbike tanks to be exact, but they want a gold effect with their logo and some dubiously stretched skull-like graphics 🙄 Just wondered if the Signgold may be an option?

    Cheers, Dewi

    That’s real perdy, Jill. It’s terrifying cutting that Signgold stuff, I think.
    Love those Letterheads fonts, I’ve got a couple but am going to treat myself to some more soon.

    Dewi, don’t want to butt in on Jill’s thread, but the Signgold is about 56 squids a metre at 380 over here!!!!!! Does that answer your question?

    SignGold is tricky to work with and expensive, but it is a good product.

    Here is a link for questions. Brian “The Brush” Briskie is your answer man.

    Great Work Jill,

    Love the signgold product.

    It is well over $100 per meter at 450mm here.

    I was asked to do a boat rego for a wealthy businessman’s yacht some time back.

    I told him to buy the material, and I’d cut it, which he did.

    It cost him over $600 for 2 boat regos’ and a boat name. He didn’t even flinch. Was as nervous as hell cutting it though. Never had a customer want it since.

    We sold 250 metres once to a bloke who was covering the roof of a temple. 250 blinkin’ metres!

    I got nervous when I had to cut a line of text 5 metres long for an exhibition panel. You know what they say: measure about 150 times, cut once!

    that looks cool, is it on the inside or ourside, can you get reverse signgold?

  • Jill Marie Welsh

    It is on the outside, Mandy.
    You can get reverse-glass SignGold, it’s in MirraGild only (I think) which is pretty.
