    A+ I wouldn't waste my time with magnetic signs, My uncle made some for me last season and they came out great but the material only comes in smaller sections and therefore makes your signs very hard to read compared to larger vinal lettering. He is now making me vinal lettering for me with a new logo along with a rear lift gate sign. All is going to be larger this year, not too big but big enough so people can see ya at a distance. One thing whatever you decide make sure the phone# is very visable and name. :waving:

    I got 4 magnetic signs on ebay. 4 for $60-
    They look great, and they guy did a great job. Just be careful on how you position them on your doors. I lost 2 in the wind a few weeks ago.

    PM me if you want his contact info!

    my magnetic signs have been very effective.........have gotten many calls and jobs from them. I they are rather plain, black on white. They are 12x24....... I am now going to signs on my trailer.....and using the mag. signs when plowing......

    I used to use magnet signs, but spent more payup on them then if I had the sign shop just letter my truck. I just lettered it with a design they came up with and have already gotten customers from it. it cost me $80.00 for both doors at a local shop and looks good!

    I keep the old signs that did not blow off for my other trucks I use for snow plowing.
