That's pretty sweet, a nice way to reuse something that would be thrown away too... i wonder if it's possible to get the specs to do it with another magazine

Apple store is down. I smell an ipod release. :d

Hmm: Apple's new iPods reportedly in scant supply | Apple - CNET News
Anyway, after much consideration I've decided not to buy a new iPod Touch. Apple can stick their premium, underpowered crap in an uncomfortable place.
Instead I bought the Kindle Paperwhite, which by all accounts is a product that is worth its price tag.

Remember that iPad 3 lockscreen? Here
I'm thinking of turning it into a vinyl wall sticker. I found a company that can custom make it - they usually do vinyl wall quotes like this:
And wall designs like this:
I got a price quote for it and the prices are as follows:
Size: 21" tall x 20" wide
Size: 24" tall x 23" wide
Size: 26" tall x 25" wide
Size: 28" tall x 27" wide
Size: 30" tall x 28.5" wide
I'll probably add some money onto this so I make a little something off it, but what do you guys think of the idea? I also have an idea for transferring the design to painted glass.

How about a 6 inch or so for car windows?

It's so detailed, at six inches I'd imagine the machine couldn't cut it that small. I could design a small one, though.

I had a very bad experience with printing a drawing I made : the resultant resolution was **** in comparison with the 326ppi I gave them. They just couldn't print in such details on the medium we chose.
So, please bear this in mind when dealing with the company you mention. Insist on the output resolution, your work, and even more especially that one high quality image, deserves the best treatment.

Yeah, good idea - I should get a sample first
The patterns I create are done with vector lines, so that should allow for maximum resolution

Hmm, I guess what I should really do is have a bunch of patterns to choose from.
The dilemma I'm facing is that I love making the "Neurotech" style of artwork, but I want to try to make these patterns/ symbols into a physical product, rather than a purely digital one.
Another idea I had was to transfer the vinyl pattern onto a sheet of glass, then cover that with another sheet of glass, this way it would look as if it's floating on top of the wall when mounted. But how do you mount two sheets of glass to a wall? Hmm...

You'd want the glass custom made, and have the edges smoothed so they aren't sharp as hell, they could drill the holes for you when that's done, thin tempered glass would look awesome

Ok, I think I have a plan for what I'm going to do:
I'll start with some small-scale designs on 8x10" glass. I'll paint the opposite side of the glass and sandwich the vinyl between another pane of glass. I found some simple picture frames, but they're kind of cheap - I'll use them for now just for testing, although I will probably upgrade to something nicer (or design and fabricate a frame from scratch). Drilled glass and stainless steel clasps are still an option, although I'm not entirely sure where I can get glass drilled professionally.
Each one will be numbered and signed by me, which means there will be a limited run. I'll probably have two versions of each design - black on white background, and reversed.
Next step: find out how tiny the vinyl cutting machine can make the cuts.
Once I figure out how to make them I'll make a website to sell them. I also want to make giant versions, with crazy detail

Dude, given the time of year... Neurotech pumpkin patterns!!! how sweet would that be? also J any window shop that can do security windows can drill the glass for you

Heh, I thought about that. Pumpkin carving is hard! I injured my wrist a while ago and it still causes pain. Nope, I think I'll stick with computer-controlled machines to do all my physical labor
Speaking of which, here's a peek at what I've been working on:
