I figured someone would pick that up....I read Artbrushes post on decals and I have ordered the paper..... I did that with photoshop to see if Joel wants them signed or the decal on the production baits?

Here is his brief bio: http://www.bassdozer.com/bass-pro-team.shtml

I am also negotiating with Ron Colby on the BD Page...

I actually perfer the signed lures... Looks more personable! What do you think... signed or decal?

Personally I like the Smokey Joel. But they all look real good to me. The guy is lucky having you to make baits for him Chip. Especially since you have started using a premium clearcoat. Yep, those baits should last that guy a lifetime. Sure beats using that torch doesn't it?

If you have good handwriting then I think the personalized signature is good....if you write like I do.......use the decal.

Chip :),

Smokey Joel's got my vote! He should kick @ss at the tourney with them.

A little trick to getting a sharp signature decal is to use a fine tip sharpee. Sign at normal size then scan the signature at 150 dpi. The high dpi will help keep the signature sharp when you shrink it down.

Chip I'm glad you're back on the job here at TU. Tips & tricks to help eachother get the knack is what it's all about.

Ya know who's website I'm jealous of? Fish JC. His site puts Rapalas to shame.

I plan on comin north this summer. Perhaps we can get together and talk production and design concepts.

Tight lines,

Shawn
