    Wallhogs.com - CF Banner TOO BIG

    Thinking it would be a nice addition to the home-office, I ordered a Wallhog of the CF logo that you see in the upper left of the screen. All great and dandy BUT I ordered at like 3:00 in the morning and must not have been reading clearly because it arrived today and it's frickin 8 feet wide and 4 feet tall! While I absolutely love our logo, that is a little too big. To put it in perspective, the logo is bigger than it is on the tailgating banner we had made up (it's 6 feet wide).

    So anyways, I think I'm going to get a sheet of 1/8th inch Birch plywood and mount it on a white painted background so it's more mobile. I can clear-coat it afterwards so it stays nice looking.

    At least you sent them the right artwork. At 3:00, all bets are off as to what picture you chose!

    That's true - it could have turned out far worse

    Not to pry, but how much did it cost for the custom image? I don't need anything that size, but just curious.

    It was around $75 - Of course smaller ones are cheaper

    I'd use something a little more sturdy than 1/8th inch plywood....at that size, 1/8th inch will be way too "fragile"

    I'd recommend 3/8"

    You should think about going on your lunch hour sometime.
