I didn't originally plan on making the sides that tall. I finally decided they had to be 3' or I just wouldn't have enough surface to mount a big enough sign on the sides. At 36" total from the floor, I only have 24" from the top of the angle iron rail.
I went with untreated 1x6's instead of 2x6's for weight reduction. Then treated with Advanced Thompson's Water Seal with the honey colored stain in it.

Only ended up adding 260lbs to it (I weighed each section before installing).

That seems like a simple question, but I'm not following you.

how will it come out????

It is just a regular 888 toll free number. They would just have to spell out LAWN on their phone like any other.

I've never had a Blackberry. I went from a Razor to an iPhone.
Do Blackberry's have some sort of different dialing method than a regular phone? I've never even messed with one so I have no clue.

I'm pretty sure it won't be that bright on the finished product. That is photoshoped onto my trailer.
Since the trailer is out in the sun and the artwork was downloaded off the internet and modified, it is going to show up completely different.
I wish I was better with Photoshop. I love the program but there is waaaaay too much to learn. I don't have the time.

By increasing the size of the name, I'm assuming you mean the number (because that is the name)

I have already decided it needs to stretched out a little more. The scale of that picture would be a 2'x4' sign on the side of a 14' trailer. I will probably stretch that to 2'x6', making the number bigger.

I was going for the "1-800-CONTACTS" type approach. This way if they remember the phone number they remember the name. Everyone around here knows me. I didn't feel like I had to plaster my name all over the trailer. But I DO want them to know how to reach me.

Thanks
