DMC LED signs
#1
Quick question for everyone
Looking for a DMC LED sign much like Mr parnhams but a smaller size since I've seen one or two on instagram
Anyone got any ideas where I could possibly find them would be a nice addition to my "man-cave"  Big Grin

Will,
please call me Chris...or Chris P, ....(so that we don't get confused with all the other Chris's in our Club) .....Chris W, Chris N, Chis M, etc.....

    That reg number on a Red interior RHD Delorean......was a step too far.....  Even for me!  Blush

There was someone in the UK doing the smaller signs, but I cant remember who!

I can do a pretty good facsimile with brushed metal + black vinyl on opaline perspex. Backlight with off-the-shelf LED tape and mount in a frame, and it'll be good for indoor use. You can get custom frames fairly cheaply here:

Once you've bought the opal + vinyl etc I suspect you're looking at around £130 for one that's 600mm ish wide. I drew up the artwork for this for an aborted project a few years ago, a lot of the enthusiast-made ones don't quite get the fonts right.

Except that mine says 'Delorean Motor Cars'.....the company in NI who actually made the cars.....not the USA parent company, who spent all the money!

Words are easy to change... I've seen ones that say DeLorean Motor Cars LTD too, all quick enough to sort!

I seem to remember someone in Ireland (North or South cant remember now) and there have been batches made in the US. I would be up for one if we could get them done.

I’ll get a sample made at some point in the coming weeks. Chris P, could you get me a decent photo of the grain in your sign? I’ll see what brushed vinyls look right.

Yep, I had one of the ones done by the chap in Ireland, can't remember the chap's name though! I think it was about £200 and I picked it up when we were over there. Will try to find it.

 I remember I met him at Mervyn Richardson's place if that helps!

Hi Matt,

I'm sorry I completely missed your request, I will get it done later today.
