Hi everyone!
As you can probably tell, I am new to the forum. I have been interested in puzzle collecting for a couple years though. A couple weeks ago, I attempted my first mod: a custom 3x5x5. I made it by sanding down an old 5x5 I found. I wasn't happy at first with how all the sides weren't pillowed, so I tried to extend the faces. It didn't work out so well, seeing as the pieces are slightly uneven, but overall, I'm happy with the outcome. :)

Thats very well done for a first! If you could get some machine cut stickers, that would make it look even better :)
And welcome to the forum :)

Where does one go about getting machine cut stickers? Is there a site I'm unaware of that you can send the dimensions? Or is that something you do at home with a special tool?

Oliver is great! I ordered super teraminx stickers from him, and he was so concerned that when he got the first print, the cut was barely off and he reprinted them! Now they look great!
