    I'd like to see some pictures of trucks and trailers. I am looking into getting my stuff lettered next year and would like to see some examples. I already have a logo and would like to see everyones size, shape, color scheme's etc. Thanks guys.

    Here's the truck I'm using. Feel free to give me suggestions on the size/color/location.

    First off IMO you need to paint the truck white. I do not think lettering/graphics show up well on red.

    Avery's got a good point, red aint real good in showing up loudly. I lettered my truck primarilly for appearance (image) reasons. I havent the need to advertise that much as we stay quite busy in season times. Here are some pictures of red trucks w/logos though.

    I diagree with lettering on red trucks. The best looking trucks in my area are all red with a white logo. Also look at Jim Lewis' trucks -- they are red and very sharp.

    The biggest outfit around here has about 30 red trucks and enclosed trailers. The lettering is green and black with white outlining.

    Ya' know, it seems as if it's easier to have good signs on Fords and Chevys. My Dodge, below, has contours that have caused my larger magnetic signs to come off of the doors. Arrgh! Some lettering doesn't show up that well on darker vehicles, such as red, but Turf Pro's logo shows up real well on that white truck.
