    If anyone is interested in making their own DTS or THX plaques, check mine out and let me know. I may be able to help out with the lettering.

    Darren,
    I'm surprised no one responded. You did a very nice job. [​IMG]
    I thought the idea of the 'box' holder was pretty clever. I think I'd like to do that instead of a lighted sign or marquee.
    Thanks for taking the time to post this stuff.

    The lettering is cut from vinyl, sandwiched between two pcs of glass, framed in hardwood. I would be willing to make them up for those that want them. Frame and lettering colors are your choice. Those interested should e-mail me with their info

    Darren,
    You are yanking our chain here! You could not have cut those out by hand. No way. They look so good.[​IMG]
    Furthermore to add to my yanking theory, you could not possibly make these for all those that would want them unless you did them at a lo$$. By hand...no way, dude.
    If this is all true then please consider I made the first compliment .

    Nope, your right, not by hand. I figure I can do them for $60 plus shipping. You have to consider that the real ones are plastic without a frame, mine are [​IMG]" thick glass and a hardwood frame. And the colors are your choice.
