If your still around posting, I have to ask: Why a power strip?

My first, during the big "Fear the Beard" World Series Run

Screwed up the SF in the hat, and had to redo the stencil twice

Happy with how it turned out, a couple small bleeds but a whole lot of fun!

The Mountain Hardwear logo on the left was my first, and Shakespeare was my second.

My First Dye I actually did 3 that night...

I lost this one about 2 weeks ago so I redid it... This is about the 10th disc I have done. It's about as close to perfect as I have gotten. No bleeds, centered & clean cuts.

I just did my first multi-color last weekend...

I wasn't real happy with it but apparently it's not as bad as I thought it was. I got frustrated at the bleeds. But it was good practice because I have 3 more trophy discs to do this week.
