Have you heard of ponoko? This wonderful new service that will laser cut just about anything for you… and in any shape you request. You can choose to make things from MDF, plywood, whiteboard (not dry erase board sadly), and various colors of acrylic.
In my mind, this is your chance to make those cheesy cutouts that they sell at the county fair look stylish and wonderful. Perhaps you’ll create the next version of vinyl wall stickers in the form of 3-D trees and birds — or you could simply write your name on the wall in script letters using pink acrylic plastic for fun?
