If eating carrots improves the eyesight, how come there are so many dead rabbits on the roads?

Hi Keith,the thing I like most about your sign,is it's so easy to see and read which people really appreciate in this fast paced world today.

Nice looking sign, Keith. I agree with JamesJJ about the legibility.

I lay out the lettering with laser-cut stencils, spray black dye, remove the stencils and rout to the image. When making a sign with a font I don't have stencils for, I set it out on MS Word, print a mirror image on my laser printer, then transfer the image to my sign blank by carefully rubbing the back of the paper with xylene. From there, I simply rout to the outlines of the image.
