    Looks better less to focus on. I would maybe think about taking of the "Ram 1500" badge and streching your logo out onto both doors. 2 more cents for ya

    If you are going to put it that small I would not even bother. You can barely see it from 10 yards away much less on the other side of the road at 45mph.

    It really needs to cover both doors and possibly some of the window with that special colored window tint. Remember the point is to catch people attention.

    I never really liked his all that much or maybe it was just him. I was thinking: maybe put the website over the wheel well a bit bigger. That's what I did and I think it makes it very noticeable. Just a thought.

    Because his is easy to read and is more organized to look at. Yours was all over the place. And the tree and sun wont be on the door handle if you have it centered good. Take it to a pro and let them tell you what will work

    looks like my truck, I guess I'm to busy but it keeps me busy.
    They don't bother reading it at 45mph on the other side of the road, men and women read it in parking lots at red lights at the school the restaurant the nursery you name it.
    Bill boards at busy intersection get read by captive audiences, that's how I feel about the truck it's to be read by people sitting still or walking by it and the name can be read going down the road.
    And the best part is you only pay for this bill board once and it keeps getting you business.

    I might be repeating other's but my 2 cents, make the logo bigger, keep the phone # where it is (maybe in a different font). and just use lower case letter's, to me lower case letters are easier to read when driving by. If you still wanted to keep some services on the side, maybe "full service landscaping, weekly mowing....and more.

    Try having a friend look at your design for 3 seconds then have him or her describe what they can remember. This is an excellent exercise for trimming down a design and making it more memorable. Also words make us think, images make us feel and feelings make us act. If you want more action use more images.

    Is there anyway you can put the logo on the door handles? Paint them? or get aftermarket ones that the logo can be "stuck" too? You NEED to stick out like a sore thum. Especially if you just have one truck out and about. Go big or just forget it. The way you have it now is the status quo... I see so many businesses that are advertising on there truck doors, but I can't even read what they are. If I were you I would look into a truck wrap in an obnoxious color. It will preserve the paint and value of your truck and also give you a bright color that says "look at me" and people will be drawn to your logo. But I believe this has to coincide with your other advertising methods. It all works together. You cannot do ONLY truck advertising... it has been a multitude of avenenues for it to work together.
