One of the best product inspirations we’ve seen! Lexi Vornberg has taken ProDPI Fabric Wall Clings and designed a custom sign for her studio. Check out these amazing images and read all about how she did it. Get inspired!
When I first started looking into purchasing a sign for my studio I knew right away that I wanted something with a little character to it, like an old table you would find at a flea market, and I knew I wanted it to have my exact logo, font and color. After looking at about 2 dozen places I found that I either had to give in and have a sign that did not match my exact logo or spend hundreds of dollars on a custom sign that still really wouldn’t match what I was looking for. At that point I knew I wasn’t going to find what I wanted and that I would have to do a little DIY.
First I had to find a way to be able to transfer my exact logo to a piece of wood. After visiting ProDPI’s booth at WPPI back in February I remembered their wall clings which can be printed out with anything on them and stick to almost any surface. It was perfect. I ordered a 20×30 wall cling with three of my logos sized 10×20 on it, in case I needed a few back ups. Once it arrived I took the wall cling to Kinkos and cut the three pieces out so I had three 10×20 wall clings. I had already purchased a piece of wood from Home Depot sized 10×20 and enough side molding to fit around it. I just picked the cheapest wood since my logo would be covering it. I then had some help cutting the molding at an angle so it nicely fit around my sign and painted the molding and the wood white. After 2 coats were applied and it dried over night I nailed and glued the molding around the sign and let it dry. I then added my cut out 10×20 wall cling to the sign and painted over it with clear sealant to make it waterproof. After it dry it was completed. Total I spent less then 45.00 on the perfect custom sign that not only had character but also matched my branding perfectly. And I still have 2 more wall clings to make 2 more signs if I needed to.
