    The use of a standard font, too, like the machines that make these things do postscript.

    Am I the only one that saw those heads, and had the thought “Hey, kinda looks like oompa-loompa heads”?

    Dacker, if you follow the link, his flickr set then links to his page about how it’s done:

    Seems pretty legit to me.

    Rob, it is printed then turned into a mask, then the tubes are “grown,” so likely their output device did have postscript.
