    You know those neato signs that everyone has? You know the ones I'm talking about. The DTS sign. The Dolby Digital Sign. The often imitated, but never duplicated, ohh so hard to find, THX sign. WHERE DO YOU FIND THEM????? I've been looking everywhere. Could someone please help! [​IMG]
    I've managed to find the DTS one on the dtsonline.com website. And I've seen the Dolby Digital one around. But I'd really like to find the elusive THX plaque! Any ideas?

    You can get the Dolby one from the Dolby Web site. I think the THX one will be harder to find, unfortunately. The THX people seem to be picky about who displays their logo and where. Well, not too picky about some of the so-called THX certified DVDs! [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the help guys!!! Someday when I can afford to build the HT I've always wanted, these will look great.....in the meantime, Once I get pictures, I'll post It's a modest setup, but it's all I got right now.

    Or, you could always make'em yourself. (heehee)

    Use a good color printer, have the prints laminated, and/or plaque mounted, and voila! Super-cheap. I even made my own DVD-case matinee sign, like the ones they sell on the 'net for $30. I used the above technique, but laminated the small portion of print with packing tape, and it looks very professional.

    I made my own too, with some lamination and a nice frame.

    I actually scanned mine from a aprox. 1"x2" picture in a magazine. Blew it up, made some changes and there it is.
