I am looking to make some signs for a church group. they want the word hope cut out. each letter will be an individual sign or piece. Around each letter there will be 1/2" holes 2" apart for Christmas lights to poke through. I need to make an offset of of the letter towards the inside i want to do a .75" offset. then what I want is to create an array around that offset. i see the option to do a circular array. but I cannot figure out how to do an array that follows a vector pattern.

Any help would be great. Thanks Mike

Use the Copy Along Vectors tool, it's the one next to the Circular Array.
