The last few weekends I have been working on a prototype plaque for an organization. I made a vinyl stencil, scroll-sawed around it, then masked off the edges and painted. I need to get a laser cutter, I could crank these out in minutes. This is just a process shot I took while cutting.

I finally got all the kitten vectors finished and cut out in time to not do anything kitten related this weekend. Meow!
My buddy back home sent my the finished picture of a painted sign he did for a relative. He found inspiration on the internet and I helped with the vinyl.
This is a textured render of a quick eagle design I whipped up the other day. The design was for a vinyl transfer to a t-shirt for a good friend making a career transition. I left off all the sarcasm from this version of the design.
Some good friends of ours saw a cool Hobbit kitchen sign online that they liked, so I recreated a vinyl sticker for them. I also made some masks for cutting the top and bottom of the board to match.
This was another decal I made for our families door, with some traditional arts and crafts roses.
My sister-in-law is a crafty knitter and painter, and she asked me to make version of my nerdy roger for her. I cut out a couple of stickers in different sizes and colors.
For Christmas, I made my wife a jewelry hanger with a vinyl initial on the front. Her sister had asked me to make her one too, and I took just a smidge of creative license.
My wife had another cute shirt idea for her friend’s little girl, so I got to play around with some heat-transfer vinyl this weekend. In all, it was fairly straight forward, though the silhouette brand’s instructions for how long to apply the iron seemed a little excessive. The silhouette brand vinyl was also pretty expensive, ~$15 for 9″ x 36″. I’ll have to see if I can find a slightly bigger size at a better bargain at signwarehouse.com
UPDATE (7-23-2013): I got an action shot of the little lady enjoying her custom shirt!
