So a friend of mine owns a sign shop that he is closing down. He gave me the oppertunity to make whatever I want within one day.

I made out like a bandit!

I thank him greatly for what he did. Now next weekend I have to install a new lawn in his backyard :cool2:

Ill get to my favorite part fist. The back window!!

Its that perforated see through material

I have 2 of these made up.....

And then I got the following:

Logo in silver die cut x4
Phone # in silver x4
Logo in digital print x2
Logo in digital print on reflective vinyl x2
phone # in digital print x2
company name skewed in blue die cut (matched my truck color) x2
company name skewed in blue reflective (VERY VERY reflective) die cut x2
Some wording for the Chevy flatbed and bed of one of my pickups in green

Here is the pic

Well there is a lot of money there but for his yard he is paying for materials and I'm supplying labor and equipment. It's pretty even I stacked duplicates of logos there. That's why I mentioned how many of each copy I have.

Nothing. Its not a 7. LOL

Its just a symbol, it does not represent anything but look kind of like a blade of grass and it also looks like a 1, sort of like our quality of work! LOL:cool2::weightlifter:

Very nice once again! I LOVE the back window of the ford. The lettering really ties in the colors on the dump too!

No brickman uses fords. I just painted the bed that color. It used to be green.

Looks like you made out good on the deal! I'd love to do something somewhat small on my truck but not sure yet....

Thanks!

You shoud should do something. I have 3 trucks, but only use one at a time and I have people tell me all the time that they see my trucks "all over the place". Im not sure if its the catchy name or all the lettering on my trailer or what it is but its pretty cool since I live in a huge densly populated area and only use one truck at a time! It may not bring in a lot more new customers but it has brought some in but the biggest thing I notice is it brings comfort to thier decision to choose us over a company that does not have any lettering or markings on thier trucks.

Everything has been sorted out. I wanted to buy the plotter but its a huge one and too much money for me.

Yeah I started working. my back and legs and hands and neck and arms are killing me. Im way way out of shape! I did get a little sunburnt on my arms and face today though! I edhed the landscape beds at one job for 8.5 hours today. Glad to have that one checked off the list. Ill start mowing the week following next week unless the grass really starts getting long. No one is cutting here yet but im sure a lot will start mid next week or so.
