    - My client sent a photo of a theatrical sign he needs for a conference. He wants me to make two of these on the cheap ($350-400 each) since they will only be used for one day. Any ideas?? And he wants matching trophies?? Yikes ..he REALLY wants the "Rodeo Drive" look as indicated in the attached..
    Anyone got ideas???

    I'd ask him what his definition of "Cheap" is.

    ahhhhh..... guess you could start out with a piece of pvc pipe or even a heavy wall cardboard tube. But seriously, any way you look at it, you're gonna have a bunch of time messing around no matter how cheap the materials used.

    Cheap means . . . .. ... .

    . . . .... when I said "on the cheap", I should have clarified.
    $400.00 each for the signs, but they have to be in Long Beach, Ca. by August 26th .. . .

    Yikes - I would think your cost to make or even order them (if replicas even exist) would be close to that.
