Anyone know what has happened to Connie Miracles' web-site?

I checked it just now and got a Wordpress error. Her site appears to be down.

I purchased some graphics from her a few years ago.
Very pleased, the 'tricky' font for the headlight number boards was spot on.

Here is the email address:
miraclegraphics@comcast.net

Like I said, it was a few years ago.

It's Saturday night, 5/15...appears the Miracle RR Products website is back up and running once again. Didn't see any explanation for the outage.

It may have been something Connie had nothing to do with. Like the hosting provider made an update that messed it up. Happens now and then.

She did a great job with my stencils just a few weeks ago.

Four notes: (1) Use "Embed Font" into PDF if you're using a specific font, (2) she uses inches, (3) s-l-o-w-l-y remove stencil so as not to accidentally loose small pieces inside the letter (e.g. triangle inside "A"), and (4) caution: removing stencil may alter paint finish. Practice with her "test" samples.

I thought one method was to paint the lettering color first then use a mask to spray the black in this case. So the letter color is "under" the main color

As with programs like "This Old House," I always wished they had done one on painting; I still have a lot to learn. Meanwhile "Harley" and I are having fun!

Who knows, possibly another story someday on the attempted rust treatment of a saddle tank. Miles to go before I sleep.
