    I have a customer that would like something like this on the back of a 72 pickup truck window. If someone has the capabilities of producing something like this into a cut file, let me know how much you you'd charge me. It doesn't have to be exactly like what he drew, but something bad *** holding the letters. pm me prices and how to reach you

    Fred, the Grim Reaper 2 looks really cool.
    Slapakiss you could probably use that clip art and just add the letters.

    Does your client have enough of a budget?.....Many clients like this have no idea what something like this will cost....

    He knows he's going to be spending around $350... seems like he's been pricing it, but no biters on designing it. I told him i'd see what i could do, but i can't draw on the computer with the Bezier Pen tool to make it cutable, so i thought maybe i could sub it out to someone that has the skills

    Something like this?

    (okay, I needed something creative to do this morning before I drag myself through cutting federal project signs the rest of the day....lines and lines and lines of black helvetica.)
