Truck Lettering Ideas.

Next summer, I plan on getting my truck lettered.

Here is what I plan on doing:

-Lettering on the two extended cab windows
-Big Lettering on the rear window or tailgate

Just trying to get some input on colors, specific words I should include, etc.

A picture of my business card is pictured for some ideas.

Thanks!

Just a thought, don't do any windows. You need to see out of those. I did that and was sorry I did. In the winter, you can't scrape those then. Just do the doors and the tailgate.

That makes sense. The two extended cab windows and the rear window are tinted. Not a huge fan of the rear window, but I may change that soon.

There is a guy in town with basically the same truck, only dark grey. He has just his business name lettered on the back and side windows. I think it looks pretty sharp...

I agree with TNT. skip the windows, as far as lettering goes, talk to the graphics guy. It's either Red or Yellow that fades with sunlight faster than snow melts in Mexico
