Our New Trailer Tailgate Sign

We just installed this today - wanted to keep it simple (cheap) since we're a small operation, but attention-grabbing. We had this made at a local sign shop and it took them about an hour.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

Looks good, maybe a bit crooked but probably just the picture. I use my plastic bag signs and just a cut a thin piece of wood that slides inside of it, but yours looks very nice.

It was $85 and is 2 by 3 feet, .080 inch thick aluminum just like road signs.

I think the angle of the photo makes it look crooked - I measured twice before I mounted it

Yeah, the main drawback to the location, but we'll just have to remember to put the gate back up after unloading. Doesn't take but a second, but will have to get in the habit.
