Hey! As a fellow bee that has taken calligraphy under her wing…I kindly offer that you should attempt a redo. Try adding some lines with a ruler and line this up. Possibly even trace the letters.

 

Good Luck!!!

Free2bme:  DIY is so hard for me, I could never do a bouquet! I would give it another try to the sign, maybe do it on your computer? I’ve created a few signs on word that look pretty decent! Good luck.

Free2bme:  I doubt anyone will care about the sign, so if you like it, I’d stay stick with it…otherwise,  if you’re wanting to give it another go and clean it up a bit, here’s what I did for my large signage:

  • Assuming the sign is bigger than the standard 8.5×11 piece of computer paper, you can still DIY by typing what you want it to say (in whatever awesome fonts you want) in word and saving the image as a PDF.
  • Upload the PDF to a free poster generator online (I used rasterbator.com) and select the size you want…It’ll print your image on the necessary number of sheets of computer paper and you can tape them together to create a stencil
  • Then…use scisors or an X-acto knife to cut out the design/words and trace onto the actual sign…then you can use paint or sharpie or whatever you wanted to finish it up; It’ll be neat, consistent, and still totally DIY.

Alternatively, if it is small enough that you can print it on a single sheet (I can’t tell size from the picture), you can change the font color to something so light it’s barely readable and then go over that with your choice of paint/marker to achieve the same effect.

That said…I LOVE the edging on the sign. Very nice!
