Ah, jeeze-o pete; cake from scratch make ya' fall down and act crazy.
Really only takes a few extra minutes.
Taste and texture?
No comparison.
Box cakes 'suck', as the young folks say.

I got a lemon curd cake recipe that calls for 10 eggs.
Hahaha!
One day.
One day.
We'll see.

There's gonna be a shortage of cardboard any second.... and I'm gonna be ready...

I must have tossed enough boxen the other day to heat a third world country and discovered all the other damn boxen I had buried under the bunch I tossed.....

I am expecting a call from Amazon any day wanting some boxes....

First they came for the tin cans, and I did not speak out-
because I don't really use that many.
Then they came for the plastic bags, and I did not speak out-
because that's what they give me at the store.
Then they came for the boxes, and they didn't feel like breaking them all down and hauling them off.

If I baked, I'd likely weigh 400 pounds. :sadwave:

Woes, woes...

Trouble and confusion.

I'm having decal logo troubles.


It seems that decals printed up on transparent decal paper, the colors do not show up on dark backgrounds. -At all.

No wonder Gibson used gold metallic paint on their "budget" logo of gold paint "Gibson" , such as found on goldtops.

Yes, it was silk-screened off and on, but sometimes it was a decal. I have seen evidence of this.

At any rate, since I do not possess a metallic-ink printer, I have to send out for the work.

I have had George Charles do me decals before, and they were outstanding in every way. Even on black.

The seem so simple - I'm sure they are to many. It is getting my hand to form them, then the 'calculation' as to what the normal position is.

I'll get it, just surprised at myself.

My fault for not playing all of those years ago. Now I'm an old dog / new tricks.

Good decals are not cheap as I found out last year. Never had any made.

I tried putting him on my Tele, but.... he kinda disappeared on the dark grey.
Showed up OK on toolbox.
If you are so inclined, put one one the back of the Tele headstock. Would give me a half idea of what it might have looked like had I added one.

Glad I did not, as the wood grain is so dazzling on the StratoMutt neck anyway ...

My man George does superb work. Flawless. Beautiful. But they are $20 a pop.
What does the logo look like up close? I know you had green in the cactus ... I do not recall the gold.

The gecko I had in mind was full color in 1200 dpi. The printers I reached out to seemed rather unsure of how to print. Minimum quote was $60.

A mock-up:
