This was designed and then drawn up in Illustrator, once the art work was created we sent the file to our local laser etcher, who etched it on to a plank of Yew (supplied by the groom).  I also played with creating a chalk board version in Photoshop as the inspiration had been led by chalk board designs in cafes and farm shops.



The art work was drawn in Illustrator in black on a white ground, the chalk board version was the same artwork enhanced in Photoshop, and the final laser etched version was done from the black and white Illustrator file.


The plank of yew was 300 x 660mm (12" x 26")
