I'm running into another problem with my ouija project
. I need to be able to print a complex design in white ink on a black background. How?

Here's the design I've come up with: http://i.imgur.com/wolKsix.png
It's all straight lines and nooks and crannies, so doing this by hand is sort of out of the question.
My first instinct to get precision clean white on black was cut vinyl, but the sign shop said my lines were waaay too skinny. At print size (22x16) the thinnest line is about 0.01 inches, and the sign shop claimed a quarter inch is the smallest feature their plotter can handle.
So what are my other options?
Whatever option I go with needs to be able to be applied to a black chalk board and then ideally blend in somewhat seamlessly with the chalkboard. That's why I'm hesitant to do something like just print black ink onto white paper and glue it on: the edges might look too obvious. Although, I am doing some thick resin layers over this, so maybe the edges would be more hidden by the resin then I am imagining.
