No you're not. You won't be satisfied with them because of their limitations. Search this site on freehand sign making. Several tips, how to's etc. You will be a lot happier in the long run.
I'd like to have few option template sets myself..Hey all, it's been a while since I've been in here! I want to buy a nice lettering template for routing a few signs, but I am not at all impressed with what I'm seeing out there. Any suggestions from you that actually have and use them? I'd like a quality, easy to use set. All I see are Rockler and Milescraft. Am I missing something?
0 past projects sir, well, one, 30 years ago, (man time flies). Anyway, I want to make like 20 signs for rails on some land.Jack - how are your Free-Hand skills ?
I started out with plastic templates but all the while trying to improve my freehand skills to make my signs "different".
what kind of signs are you wanting to make ? any photos of past projects ?
TRAILS. Sometimes my keyboard doesn't function and if I don't proof read, that's what happens.I see - rails or trails ?
with a little practice, your free-hand skills will get you to where you would be satisfied with the results.
if it is trails, they should be sort of "rustic" (in my mind).
just print out the words on your home printer in the tile format, trim, glue together, spray glue the paper to the wood, and follow the lines. you can do it. practice practice practice.
