    Yep. And it looks like nobody ever produced. Maybe there should be a new contest thread for fastest times and such.

    It's funny how people often suggest the search tool. Why start a new thread about the exact same subject? So it could be linked to this one? Naaaaa. I personally would like to see this contest and the results.

    I would rather someone give a scenario and ask "how would you do this"?

    The sharing of informsation is the only way we ALL learn.

    For those doing it (whatever it may be) for the first time may not exactly be fast.

    Rememeber... fast, good, cheao... pick two.

    Yes, it is....Seems there were no videos ever produced for this contest that I know of. It was started in mid September 2007. It was a discussion on getting a contest started. and died when I asked how long it should run. The revision 2 years ago showed that there was still some interest in the contest but the details were still sketchy.

    I didn't do so well at planning this contest. Perhaps a 3rd party could start it so that it don't look like I'm rigging the contest in my favor. Any volunteers?

    I'm glad it was not a part of the wrap contest...lol RIP :toasting:

    if its gonna be cut vinyl everyone would have to make the same sign (size, substrate, layout, ect.) also i could bang out a sign in half the time as normal with a bunch of little bubbles that probably wouldnt be visable on camera that would also not go out the door looking like that , so idk how that would be regulated

    Looks like he's using very little solution.. you don't get bubbles on occasion when using the hinge method dry?

    I didn't know doing the hinge method magically prevents bubbles.
