Maybe I should look into having them printed on plates. Good idea!
so....here's how that goes, and it's pretty easy ...
I looked around for places to have prints made for the longest time ... Alot of my art was on wood and couldn't be scanned at a Kinko's...
What you need, my friend, is a Flatbed Printer ... The great thing about this is, most LARGE sign shops are using these now ... They not only scan in
beautiful detail, they can print on anything from plates to baseballs in super high quality ...
The cool this is you can actually go in and talk to the people in person ... Chances are you have a large sign shop right in your home town (or close
You may strike out a few times before you find the right sign shop with the right Flatbed Scanner. Smaller sign shops actually have their specialty
items printed by a larger sign shop across town. hahaha .
There you have it. Start calling sign shops, and make sure they have a flatbed scanner large enough to scan your work, and make sure they have a
Flatbed printer to print your art onto the plates or pottery.
Oh. And make sure they have the flatbed scanner ON SITE. You'll just be paying extra money if it's a smaller sign shop acting as a middle man
between you and the larger sign shop.
