This project was quite a challenge. The sign was to be 1.5 m high, and at the same time be quite light and resistant to impact.

I received the order for letters from the wedding photographer, the product was to be useful in the outdoors for photo sessions as well as in the room during the wedding.

If you want to see how I dealt with it I invite you to look through the instructions and watch the two-part video presenting the process of formation of this giant sign!
