My First DC3+ Window

So here is my first large format window. Customer supplied the art ( wish I could say I drew it ) and we installed as the sun was setting on a very hot July 8th in Danville, California. I am not very experienced at installs and this went flawlessly! =whew= The business owner stopped by and was so happy she ordered additional 'Parking Reserved' signs. I was also smart enough to have business cards in my 'install box' - former fishing tackle box and sure enough a nice lady took one. The location is a quite mostly high end boutique shops with lost of pedestrian pass by.
the belly on me and gray hair are a visual error due to the internet please ignore them :lol:

Back from Vacation
CMYK from an eps file created from the shop owner's jpeg. I am using Adobe CS 2 and this was a rush (aren't they all) so I installed and hand cut the contour. Later I discovered the Contour path in the Dura Chrome Swatch but still haven't quite figured out how to contour an embedded jpeg....
The vinyl was in the machine when we bought it - yep really winging it and the smartest thing I did was read and post here about how to do a proper cleaning of the DC3 and the manual was helpful too :D :D
