Hey Folks,

I had a window decal made of my workshop's logo, and I put it up today.

Although the proportions, design and colors are correct, I'm still not really happy with it. I was hoping that the decal would be more opaque. When it was on the white paper backing, it looked a lot better. Kris says it's fine, and to leave it.

I dunno, I may decide to go old school, and hand paint the window myself. Pop use to paint windows as a kid to earn money; not that he ever taught me how to do it. I have done a couple of windows for Christmas decorations though, so I know how. I guess this will do for now. :-?

Cheers,
Tom

Hey Paul,

You know, I hadn't considered that but, I think you're right, it would.

Kris will be very angry with you for ringing that bell, ;-)

Cheers,
Tom

I like the decal - the logo design is really clean. The choice of font works well to give a period look. In line with your concern about being opaque, I do wonder how it will work when the blinds are open. Perhaps you can just paint a white background directly on the decal/glass from the inside.
