    What is the best way to make these plaques? I've read posts but don't got any real good pics for it. I'm on a tight budget and would I print them out on like photo paper? If anyone has some real good photoshop pics I would appreciate it. [​IMG]

    Jamie, here's one way to do it, using Tim K's signs (see also the big 'plaque' thread going on). My friend made these with using $10.00 document frames from Wal Mart...I think they turned out really nice!

    What type of paper did he use? I only have an inkjet printer so I dunno how good it'll print.

    You can buy glossy paper for inkjets and or high grade paper for your inkjet.

    Jeff used glossy photo paper, and printed them using his inkjet.

    Cheers,

    Sameer-- nice looking graphics. I have to say to others interested in them, though--- they are in Photoshop's native format (.psd), in case you can't read psds. Also, their original sizes are a little large for standard desktop printing: the dts sign is 12"x13"(wxh) and the THX is approx. 20"x10".

    I modified the dts sign, so that it'd have an aspect ratio comparable to 8-1/2 x 11 and printed it on inket glossy photo paper. The metallic feature looks very nice. Good job, Sameer.
