  1. Hey, you may have already learned this but you can get chalk transfer paper in the art department of the craft store. Itโ€™s way less messy and you can use the same sheet like 50 times. Iโ€™ve made over 1,000 signs this way. They also have carbon paper for lighter/ white signs. Your stuff is super cute.

    This was very interesting. I am starting to do Wood Pallet Signs, and I think since I donโ€™t have a circuit machine to use, this might be another way. Do you know does this work on glass, cause I make Decorated Glass Blocks. Again thank you for a great idea.
