Not records though. Sign/heat transfer vinyl (like the kind you put on t-shirts). Getting ready for the county fair in a couple of weeks where we have a table full of stuff to advertise that our little side business is custom shirts, decals and things.

Weeding the glitter material that gets heat pressed to shirts is so finiky some days I swear. At least the end product is awesome.

I might be part magpie.



And finished:





It was time for a break. Bending over the workbench is hard on the neck and shoulders.

Nice work! I tried that several years ago for some project I was working on. I gave up after lots of loud, frustrated cursing. It definitely takes a lot of patience!

I've had my share of angry. I made a little admission price sign for the local dirt race track last week and the letters weren't weeding right and a couple bunched up and stuck to themselves, so I ripped the extra vinyl away in a great big sweep of my arm out of sheer frustration. Wouldn't you know it the rest of the letters stayed exactly where there were supposed to. So I had to stand there and stare at it for a minute before picking up my tweezers and pulling the bunched up letters apart so I could put it on the coroplast.
