    Interesting, chinooks are cool... (as are vinyl cutters...)

    Now, I had extensive difficulty trying to remove the perspective from the photos

    perspective1.

    you should take the pictures from farther away, and looking straighter at the paper, to minimize perspective distortion

    and either place a rectangle (or registration marks) on the page like the blue lines below, or if the paper is a straight rectangle then have all the edges of the paper in the photo

    so that I can draw a straight rectangle like the red lines,

    perspective2.

    then I can adjust the photo to make the blue lines (or the edges of the paper) line up with the red lines, to accurately eliminate perspective distortion in the photo

    perspective3.

    and, if you provide the dimensions of the blue rectangle (or the paper), then the proportions of the red rectangle can be made to match very precisely

    notice, in your second picture neither the left or right edge of the paper is visible, so the only vertical reference is the two T characters, and they are on the left half of the photo, so that's not much to work with, I was not able to confidently remove perspective distortion in these photos

    I ended up having to guess and improvise to get something close to what the photos appear to show, I didn't put any fillets on the letters (in case adjustments are needed), so you should add a small fillet right before cutting to get rid of the sharp corners

    those would work much better, but hopefully the previous result will be sufficient, let me know if it needs work...
