Guy’s name tag

For Guy's name plaque I decided a log round would be cool. I started with a domed round relief then imported the bitmap (from the  TEXTURE MAGIC COLLECTION ) I created the first vector and relief round because the bitmap was that shape, but I squished it a bit to make it an oval. I then created a 1/2" tall flat relief using the lettering outline.

Checkerboard name plaque

With the  Sign Magic Workshop  now just over a month away it is time to get busy with the preparations. Each guest will receive a routed name plaque to take home with them. Through the years of the workshops I've designed and routed more than 200 of these name plaques - all different. they are a great way to learn the program! For Kyle I decided a checkered flag would be cool. I wanted it to wave both vertically and horizontally.

Friendship

For our last sample I wanted to create something a little different. I first did a quick google search for 'Japanese symbols'  The symbol for 'Friendship' was nice and simple and perfectly suitable for our sample. I then did a vector trace by hand.

Lasso another

Don's name plaque employs a variety of techniques.  I started with a dome relief, then modified it by adding a raised center. I used an enlarged sandblasted woodgrain bitmap from the  TEXTURE MAGIC collection  to add a cool texture to the piece

Celtic delight

The build of this name plaque started a little different than most. We would start with the bitmap and let it determine the shape and proportions of our plaque
