Unfortunately my son has felt the need to put up a video camera to protect his dogs and property. Legally you have to post that you are videotaping so I made him this sign to post.
My son sent me a photo of a sign. I used this photo as a guideline. I am not sure where he got the photo from, but I found at least four different security type sites that showed the very same sign for sale. Here is my version of the sign.
I purchased a 1 x 12 piece of pine. I cut it to a 12" length and painted the board white on all sides.
In my Silhouette SD program I designed the yellow stripe, the letters, and the smiley face.
|I cut out the stripe and used a transfer sheet to apply the stripe, I simply eyeballed the placement|
|I have not purchased an official scraper or hook, but these items work for me. Once I have the placement where I want it I rubbed the vinyl on and pulled off the transfer sheet.|
|While cutting the wording out, I have the non-blue items moved off the cutting area|
|Weeding out the excess|
|After weeding out the centers of the o's, a's, e's...|
|Placing the lettering using the transfer material, measuring each side to ensure it is straight|
|Measuring the right side. I used the same transfer sheet for the whole process.|
|Added the smiley, measuring the sides, eyeballing the vertical placement. I added the black by hand, no transfer sheet for that!|
I also sprayed the sign with a UV Clear Spray Paint since the sign has to be outside.
Hopefully this will last my son awhile so I don't have to make him a new one soon... not that it was hard by any means!
My son generously provided this photo for me. You can see the wires in the background that lead to the cameras.
