In between testing for settings, I ran off a few slate initial coasters for gifts for in-laws…Goudy Initialen, with a heck of a lot of clean-up work. (It’s a very messy font.)

First pass at slate…I really like it. I need to find something else besides coasters though…how many coasters does a person really need? :slightly_smiling_face:


#2

Love the font! Why did you have to clean it up, aren’t fonts vector? I’ve been trying to find an electronic copy of Pouchee’s typography with no luck so far.


#3

Love the pattern/Z. Can’t remember how much you said you paid for them, but if you’re interested…these are some that I bought. Haven’t used them yet.


#4

Lots of options with Slate. You need new/more customers.


#5

If you zoom in and look closely at how the font is constructed, it’s rather a mess. Lots of chopped off segments instead of smooth flowing curves…

(I’m just picky…probably would be fine without modification.)


#6

Sweet! Might have to grab a few of those…(not much more than I paid for the coasters.) :slightly_smiling_face:


#7

Thanks. I can definitely tell where you cleaned it up.


#8

Wow! That came out stunning!


#9

These are gorgeous! Love how the engrave looks on slate.


#10

Wow, the contrast so excellent on those. Fun design, too! :smiley:


#11

Beautiful! I love the look and feel of slate. Have you put mineral oil or anything on them to make them pop or is this natural?


#12

Wow, fastastic! The unengraved portion recedes so deeply they look carved! I really must try the slate.


#13

Beautiful! Slate does really well in the 'forge.


#14

They look great. Did you try the inverse too and like this better?

I’m planning on one set of coasters for a conference room at work and that’s it. That sounds like “famous last words” though.


#15

Lemon Pledge to finish. :wink:


#16

Not yet. This was the first run at slate. :slightly_smiling_face:


#17

Nice! I’ve been trying to do pictures on slate coasters. Not as much success. It looks okay, but not great. I think my issue is the speed I’m going at can’t pick up some of the dithering.


#18

I bought a 40 pack of slate coasters! :grin:

Where from?
