As I said in my previous post ("Geek In The Pink...") this was done for a friend from high school.  This was actually the requested t-shirt that lead to the other.  I'm sure it's been done tons of times before by now but I actually think he used to use this phrase in high school which was long before "The Office" came out.  I saw one of these in an ad back in August though and told him I could make him one a lot cheaper and just as good.
If I'm remembering correctly, I used a pearl white soft paint on this one with a stencil that was a pain to cut out.  Font turned out nice, but not easy to deal with.  Ended up taking about an hour or so to do the cut outs for it in the end.  I remember having two white paints sitting there and I think I finally decided that the pearl would look prettier (even though it was for a guy).  I've already shipped them off to him so I can't look back at it.   Undecided
Thanks for looking!

You did a great job with the stencil, and I love the saying. I featured this project on Craftster's Facebook page today. Thanks for sharing.  Smiley

I'm just now making it to the Office era (I'm on season 5 finally!) so this is still entirely hilarious to me! =D
Great craftsmanship too!

Thank you!  I really appreciate it.

I will admit that I've still never seen an episode.   Shocked

Tweezers and a steady hand!  I may, or may not have, printed off extra A's just to be able to neaten up the body of the A with cutting out the triangle and then cut out a second triangle piece (destroying the body of the 2nd A) to utilize for the stencil portion.  Does that make sense?  The main tip would be that it's not a friendly font for stenciling!  By then though, I'd already "made my bed."
