How do you recreate fonts by hand?

You must have nerves of steel!

I've got a book with over 700 fonts and I lay them out on butcher paper for multiples by eye, to use and to keep for my records as patterns, Sharpie the outline, run the outline with a pattern makers wheel, place/tape pattern on surface, pounce with either baby powder or red chalk dust bag or lay out for single with a water soluable chinamarker, then letter with a brush. There is no feeling in the world like seeing all that work that has come out of the end of a brush.

For the amount of digital printing I do, I order it from a specialist. It's so affordable now it's not worth buying the machine. I just send them the jpegs to size.

A Gerber Edge would sure be handy, tho'.

Ouch!

I just finished the garage and was cutting shelves. The boat's clean because it had the cover on it. Once the snow melts, I'll pull it out and wash it ...just for you!

In the mean time, I'm thinking of peeling off that stick on rubber and going with aluminum tread plate.

No, I don't have a website.
I got into computers only a couple years ago, that's the reason I'm not into vinyl production and at nearly 61 y/o, I don't see the need at my age as I stay busy enough as it is.
