    Does anyone do this?

    I have a customer who wants his new logo on his existing pan faces. The problem is that he wants the background to be black with a honeycomb type pattern in it.

    It's a lit sign so I'm not sure about piecing it or having cuts & overlaps.

    It looks like it was done here:

    I'm trying to avoid this look:

    but it may be my last resort. Any tips?

    The edges on the first one look as if they might have been sprayed black

    is the original sign's print applied first-surface? or is that graphic on the backside of the pillow-face?

    i wouldn't worry about seaming/overlapping if you were to do the sign in two parts:
    wrap the returns in 4 strips and onto the face, trimming the rectangular v.o., and applying your illuminated print with a slight overlap around the perimeter.

    I don't know how that sign was done, I just found it online.

    The strips sound like a good approach, but maybe I should just do the perimeter in black instead of trying to line up the honeycomb pattern. I have bad luck with seams on translucent.
