Step 2: Trace or outline letters on your cardboard

Simply hold letters down and outline them with a dark pencil.

Step 3: Cut out all letters on the bandsaw (or scroll saw).

I use a 1/8 inch blade on the saw so that it is relatively easy to make the curves necessary in cutting out the letters.

Step 6: Glue all pieces to Backing

Carefully line out letters and place where wanted. Add glue and press into place. Borders are glued in this step also.

Step 7: Add some hangers to sign

For hangers, I simply use some scrap paper, cut to about 5/8 inch, punch a hole in the two pieces, and glue into place. Sign is very light, so this method is sufficient.

Step 8: Admire your sign
