Well, Halloween is just about here, day light savings time follows closely behind, so we are worried about our lack of sleep in the days to come all in part due to the work that is coming in. All and all there is much excitement to be shared through the web.
We had a new customer knock on our door the other day. Who can it be? None other then Dino Cazares of FEAR FACTORY. Its always a surprise to see who walks through our door. So just what does bring a metal, shredding god like Dino to Scary Creative? Our rub-on transfers of course! Dino has order a few sheets of his signature as a transfer. So just what does Mr Cazares need rub ons for, does he have a signature guitar series in the works? Maybe, I guess we will all have to keep our eyes up to see what trickles through the grapevine.
We also have some transfers in the works for Micheal Tuttle. Micheal is a returning customer that has been using our transfers for years now so we are always excited to ship out a few new sheets of logos out to him.
With Halloween almost here we have also taken a bit of time to design a few spiffy costumes for ourselves. Making custom graphics for a guitar hero controller, a few shirt logo decals and such. We don’t want to give to much away but we will be sure to post some photos from our adventures this weekend. In the mean time, we have a job to do!
It’s Thursday and the weekend is almost here, but before we take some time for rest, relaxation and rock n’ roll, we have some work to do. Nothing says Thursday like DESIGN! and that”s what we find our selves doing today. Our friends over at The Cali Connection have request some printing for a new contest they with be holding. You can check their website soon for more details. We also have some design work for a couple of custom guitar that with proudly being displaying the Shiner Beer logo. We with upload images as they come, as we are in the top secret stages of design at the moment. Then to keep the ball rolling Orly has just placed an order of rub on transfers this morning. Here at Scary Creative, we find ourselves creating logos for cosmetic company as mock ups of label designs for everything from shampoo bottles to nail polish. So there you have it, further proof that you can use a rub on transfer for just about anything.
When we say you can use rub on transfer on just about anything, WE MEAN IT! The example of the week, Sandlot baseball bats.
After receiving their rub on order from us they sent along this handsome picture of their bats with our transfers. Its an equations that equals beauty. Sandlot bats are made out of grade A wood and out rub on transfers have no issue adhering to them. It’s a great example of a job done SCARY!
Well folks, Friday is here and the weekend is calling, but there are still a few hours left in the work day. The sun is shining bright today, almost as bright as some new Serenghetti Guitar logos! We have a couple of spanking new, shining gold lion head logos shipping out today for Serenghetti. On the topic of rub-on transfers, we are currently designing some chromatechs for a repeat customer, Kyle Metzloff from Madison, WI. Our friend Kyle replicates sail boats on request down to a scale you can sit on your desk! Kyle calls Scary when he needs logos to be created that mimic a customers actual sail boat decals. We are given a photo and go to town creating a rub on for the replica miniature sail boat that Kyle puts together. Its a unique project for a unique company. We also have traditional printing going on in the shop today. Mark is hard at work printing out hand outs for Doug Bingham of Side Strider Inc. Doug will be hosting the 39th Griffith Park Sidercar Rally (which you can read more about by following the Side Strider link) on Sunday, Nov. 7.
Its just one of those days at Scary where we have a bit of everything going on today, but as the work piles on I some how decide its a good idea to take some time from it all to blog. Well with the the sun shine and the temperature in southern California being quite pleasant I feel the need to finish work up and hop on my bike and ride away and enjoy the weekend, hope you all do the same!
Its been a busy week at work, but nobody knows busy like our Roland printer. It hasn’t had a break all week. We’ve been whipping the poor guy the whole time to print out vinyl stickers to complete a huge order we received for The Cali Connection. As if stickers weren’t enough, orders for Fret Mask are coming in adding onto the work load, but you don’t hear me complaining. All I have to do is hit print, poor Roland though is working over-time with no pay, but don’t feel to bad for him folks, we have a tune-up in store for the Roland. (that’s as good as it gets for a printer) The weeks not over so there will be no rest in sight for our printer. Sorry Roland, you got work to do while I got home and have a beer.
