    Hi guys,

    I'm working with a sign shop right now to get my new enclosed trailer lettered. They sent me a proof, and I'm not crazy about it. Looks plain, but maybe the simpler the better??

    If you have any advice on what could be changed/added/removed, let me know.

    BTW, price quote for whats shown in the pictures is $724.50 + tax ( I think its high but thats the same number after I checked with 2 other shops)..

    Thanks :waving:

    I think it looks clean and professional. I am from the less is more school.

    My 2 cents.

    Ya I know. I can order the stuff off eBay for under $100 and do it myself, but I want the warranty..

    I guess its life :dizzy:

    Looks good, I'd say make the back of the trailer bigger fill the space...
    Also put "insured, fully insured".....

    Spuds,

    I agree on the size for the back. I told him to put insured on it but he forgot..

    Looks kind of dumb. By all means he should of centered it. Besides not being centered it is alright.

    he told me he couldn't vinyl over fuel doors... I told him to space it out more so he could work around them.. And on the right side, he didn't want to cover the human door.

    There will be "proud to support" section added once I get all of the logos for dealers together..

    But even with all of his "work".. I'm not very impressed and flipped when I heard the cost vs. what I was getting..

    Something else that will set it off is you eed the reflective red and silver tape along the bottom

    I got 150' of the red/silver reflective tape when I bought the trailer.. I was going to put it on as soon as I got it, but I had to work.. Then it got dirty and hasn't been washed since, and the tape won't stick :cry:
