Default Brother In-Law Retires

My brother in-law retired last month from UPS, and his wife had a Retirement Party for him last weekend. Being broke, I designed a sign that I hoped he would like. What I wanted and how it came out are two different things; I wanted it to be dark brown with gold lettering, and the UPS in the "dirty yellow" that's on the logo. Well, the dirty yellow and brown came out fine; the gold lettering? Well..... it was overshadowed by the poly that was applied, and made it look like-well, not what it should have. I now have to re-create it with a different color for the lettering. Just not sure what color to use. May have to go with the dirty yellow, rather than the distinguished gold for the 30+ years he gave to the company. Pattern on the left, cut on the right. Project after colored: No picture taken

Nice design, Barb. Remember you are always your harshest critic.

Another superb sign, Barb. It may not have been exactly what you were wanting but he is going to cherish it forever.
