    Wondering if any of you guys can help me out with some suggestions. Will letter this 2 suckers next spring. Will add logo to the doors, something on the tailgate and possible back fenders.

    I was thinking about putting a white vinyl on the back windows with my logos on it, with those see-through special wraps. Not sure what my options are probably black or white background since the trucks are red lol.

    Any tips or opinions is welcome!

    http://www.lawnsite.com/showpost.php?p=4495656&postcount=16 i got this done in my back window a few months back.. it cost me $150.00 i've seen much better looking.. but i gotta say it stands out.. but never had a call from it. i am gonna get the doors lettered for next season as well as the tail gate, and when the window decals wear, and time to come off i won't do that again. can't see through it when it rains.. not a big deal until i have to back my trailer back into my driveway which is down a hill.. when i can't see out back window it makes it a little tough.

    I look at door lettering as a means to look more professional, along with having all crew members in matching shirts with my logo. I spent about $200 to have a start up graphic designer render my logo and business cards when I decided to go "all in." Well worth the money in my opinion. I believe continuity in your brand is critical, and really sets you apart in an inundated market. I started out with vinyl door and tailgate lettering, but have since gone to magnets. This was no problem for me since I run fleet white on all our cabs, but probably wouldn't work for you with red. I have done some truck swapping and did not enjoy removing the stickers.

    Prob gonna letter my truck in the spring. I was wondering if there's a website that allows you to design the lettering (maybe graphics) on your own make of vehicle or upload actual pic of your truck &/or logo, so you can mess around with some ideas.

    I would recommend doors and tailgate instead of the back window. The back window can become a pain if it's done incorrectly.

    I am a big believer in getting a graphic designer to design the logo, business card, magnetic signs, etc., but $200 . . . wow. Anyone looking for good work at a much lower cost, contact Judy at http://www.zibbet.com/PortableGraffitiGraphics. She's currently quoting a price of $15 for the design of a magnetic sign. I don't know how she can do it for that price.

    sign-a-rama lets you do it on the site. I do all of my trucks on it from simple lettering to full wraps. There prices aren't the best, but one of my customers owns a franchise, so I get a good price

    As much as I want to get my truck wrapped, I like being able to take my signs off and hang out with my friends without any business repercussions.
