    This work is so cheap to have designed and installed at a shop Im not sure its worth you time to go the internet route. Im getting my truck re-done now and believe I get great value out of it. Maybe ill post a pic in the appropriate forum when its done.

    Your truck looks nice expertlawns. I'm getting my truck repainted a different color and I am going to have new lettering done too. Right now I have mag. signs. and it worked well. I'm also going to have signs done for my trailer.

    got to be honest expert i think it looks more professional when you have the logo smaller just on the doors. not to say im a pro...i have magnets so i cant talk but just my 5 cents

    i just got a quote from fastsigns, for a 6' by 2.5' sign on three sides of the trailer it was 369 and they want 350 to install..?

    is this any good?

    then I received a coupon from speedy signs for 175 off a 700 dollar job...
  8. Expert, that looks awesome. 2B, think I will go ahead and check out some local shops. Thanks for all the replies

    I sorta turned the corner in this industry. This year was the first year I had my truck lettered. I also have my logo on all my stationary and business cards. That is why I spent the money on the logo design; I like the recognition. People will identify with that logo since it is so outstanding and easy to see. That was my plan anyways. Most companies I see with small logos and phone number pretty much do it because it's the law. You must have signage here if you are for hire. It's not for advertising purposes. They are well established businesses and don't rely on truck lettering to advertise. Just my 6 cents :p

    Expert that is a nice looking truck. I think the bigger graphics are more eye catching sorta like the Explorers that Progressive auto insurance uses. I'll see your .06 and raise ya another .06 lol.
