I am sure it is possible. I have just never tried to do something like this before.
I do not have a Pro (yet…) so the largest I could make this would be about 30"x60" (judging by the largest letter I could cut on 12"x20")
My thought would be to cut the letters then glue them to a larger piece of clear acrylic. I can get 48"x96" from Home Depot, but I might need to cut it down. And then hang it by bolting the four corners to the wall.
Is there a better way to attach the letters and/or hang the sign on the wall?
I had not considered “standoffs” because I thought it would “sturdier” if it was flush with the wall. If not flush with the wall it would definitely need to be 1/2" thick for the backing.
My wife just suggested using clear acrylic spacers behind some of the letters also, if it is offset from the wall. To give it more strength, as if it were flush with the wall.
Thanks for the link. I will have to check that out. I have already converted the image to an SVG and separated the paths I want for each color. I have not broken out each letter yet, but I might need to do that if I want to maximize the cutting.
Yeah, they used one of those sites to generate that image. http://wordart.com is what they used, I think. I already converted it to an SVG and broke it up by color.
Nope… I wish I had gotten the Pro, but I didn’t know I was going to love this machine so much… I ordered the Plus. When it had to be sent back for repairs, I asked if I could pay extra to upgrade to a Pro, but I was told “no.”
If you cut them from mdf you would have a virtually unlimited number of colors to choose from with paints. Maybe against black acrylic with a 1/2 inch or so standoff (you could just cut and glue some small clear posts)
