    Does anybody know of a good professional website where I could design a custom sign to put on the back of my 5X10 gate?

    I was thinking something around 3'X2'...or what size would you guys recommend?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    I have been designing one for a couple months now. I do a design then stick it on my bulletin board and change it once in a while. I will do this until I think it is perfect. I do this because a quality sign to go on an open trailer isn't going to be dirt cheap, it will be somewhat permanent, and I believe this is a sign that you do not want to skimp on. I was thinking 2ft x 4ft maybe even a little bigger to go on the gate. I plan on going with aluminum. I have looked around on the web and have found places that do these types of signs for a reasonable price. But IMO, I think someting like this should be done locally so you can communicate better with what is needed. Also, when you pick it from the sign maker and it isn't quite right...it would be easier to deal with.
