Positioning Vinyl Lettering: Getting it Straight - I made it at the TechShop

I made it at the TechShop! http://www/techshop.ws

Problem:
On the first church sign I made, the vinyl letters went uphilll. Not good! Here's how I succeeded on the second try.

Start with a well-prepared board or other surface. The vinyl letters have been cut at the TechShop, weeded, and the transfer paper has been applied to the face of the letters. I'll call this sandwich the letter layer.

The other equipment you'll need: straight edge: cutter, masking tape, pen, burnisher.

Step 1:

Picture of
Trim the letter layer close to the lettering at the top and along each side. Position the letter layer on the board. Cut paper strips the width of the side margins and apply them to the board with glue stick. Mark the position of the top margin on the paper strips.

Thanks! It's nice to get a positive comment on my first Instructable. I'm inspired to do some more.
