I am looking for someone to fabricate a hand-lettered poster in English for an art project. I need someone who is EXCELLENT at freehand block lettering in ink, preferably the kind used in architectural drafting. The project must be done by hand lettering, but I want it to be as precise and consistent as possible. I prefer you use pencil guidelines (or guidelines on a page beneath) and use a straight edge for vertical strokes. However, if the result is good I am open to however you do it.
You will freehand a 20-character sentence in block letters repeated across in rows to fill the page, in black ink.
I will give you the full specs when you begin. I estimate you will write the sentence approximately nine times in each row, in about 108 rows. The sentences will fit completely in each row, so they will line up evenly down the page. I know this will be hand done, and all measurements are approximate, but you should make sure the sentences will fit completely across the rows before you begin. If you make an error after you begin, just make it look as good as possible and move on.
You would provide a piece of plain, smooth white paper cut exactly 24.25 inches wide by 29.75 inches tall (61.6 cm wide by 75.57 cm tall) The paper must be archival and the weight of the paper should be heavy enough to take ink, but able to be rolled and shipped.
Ink: Black ink.
All letters should be approximately .125 inch ( .3175 cm) high and about as wide.
There should be a one-letter horizontal blank space between words and sentences.
There should be a one-letter vertical blank space between rows.
20% will be paid to you when you win the bid and we agree on a deadline.
Additional 30% will be paid to you after you provide a .jpeg photo of your materials, and provide a sample of the document layout. You can sketch this on a smaller sheet of paper, digitally, or however you see fit.
You will receive full payment when I receive a .jpeg photo of the finished item.
You will be reimbursed for shipping and handling when you provide tracking information for the item and a .jpeg photo of the item packed securely.
To bid, please provide:
1. A .jpeg photo of this hand-lettered sentence, written as specified above:
This is my sample.
2. An estimate of how long the project will take you to finish.
3. An estimate for shipping costs with tracking, including packing and shipping to Ojai, CA USA - 93023.
When you bid, remember you will provide materials!
