    No, I can not cut them myself. Sold my routers. They are made of aluminum and I believe the templates come with them. I not really sure.

    Well, make the templates up and send them to someone who still has a CNC or someone who can hand cut them with a jig saw.

    I like the...... 'we don't skinny dip.... we chunky dunk'.

    Even without a router, they could be cut out with a good jig saw, and even easier if using composite aluminum.

    Depending on how many you order of each design, Grimco can cut them to shape but they have a min. of 25 I think

    Get to know your local laser cutting / waterjet cutting source. You can buy aluminum sheet stock in 4 x 8 or 4 x 12. All you have to do is ine 'em up...and let 'em rip.

    Most sign design programs already have template files.

    Thanks for all the replies. I know I can make my own and I know others can cut for me, so rather than reinvent the wheel I was looking for the person that made these. I know it's not the person who was selling in this booth and they purchased the blanks pre-made from someone.
    This may be a start your own business thing and it was sold as a package. The people operating the booth were not very sign savvy.

    When one delves into subtle attempts at humor, the use of smilies is highly recommended. :tongue: :doh:
