    I had our blue truck decaled today, I do not like it compared to our white one. I am also decaling a brown colored on Monday. What is your thoughts? Is it plain out ugly or will it pass as professional looking? I will only buy white fleet trucks from now on out.....

    edit-I just went and looked and it is the same green color on both trucks, one looks like a lighter green due to the lighting in each picture, the gray outline may also make it look lighter.

    Taking off my old decals and installing new was 400.00 each truck.

    i think the white one does look better but the blue one does not look bad. maby the grass at the bottom of blue truck is a bit much for the dark color.if i were u hold off on the brown one for a few more days and let the blue one sink in a little. when i got the letters on my truck i didnot like at first but its ok now.

    They both look great, although you can't beat white for professionalism.

    Decals in themselves are much more professional than magnetic signs.

    I do something similar but I put the website near the hood and the phone number over the rear wheel wells 11" high digits.

    They both look fine to me! Thewhite one might be a tad better, but they are both the same graphics and this shows uniformity in the fleet. I've got grass at the bottom of my box truck- it doesn't look as good as yours. I might have them re-do it next week.
