Looks good.

Impressive! Very nice.

But.

The URL is difficult to read. I would have gone with a sans serif font.

Don't Aztec decks have to be made of stone and have human sacrifices on them?

Yeah but I'm not allowed to do that, and stone is too heavy.

I Appreciate that. The designers were horrible and wanted my van to look like a Microsoft Word clipart-mobile so i had to do it myself. Best I could do.

Re: Got My Transit Wrapped


Lots of issues from a graphic design standpoint. Any critique would be toward refining a good design, tho. Better than most professionally done wraps I've seen.

Well done!

I was doing affiliate marketing on the side when fiverr came out and actually used to sell blackhat SEO services on it myself. Yes it's complete garbage.

Thanks. It's not perfect but sure stands out. Most guys in my area have a magnet on their truck (yes Jaws I know, some great people have magnets)

Re: Got My Transit Wrapped


I commend you for getting your truck decked out nice. It looks pretty, but you buy these things because your trucks are supposed to be a rolling billboard. The graphics of this (and many others that I see) are difficult to read (too busy) at a quick glance, and a quick glance is about all your potential clients will get to see who you are.

I think you could stick with the logo only, lose all of the written text, web address, phone number, etc. and be easier to read and equally effective. All they have to do is google Aztec Decks and they've found you, your online brochure and all of the other stuff they need.

I like it. If I saw you next to me at a stop light, or watched you drive past from my front porch, I'd know who you are and what you do - since I'm assuming that was your goal, I'd say you did well.

Re: Got My Transit Wrapped


eye catching, defiantly not boring. just wondering how do you like the transit? what engine did you get? How long have been driving it?
what sold you on the transit vs other makes.

I love it. I have the 250 3.5L eco boost, extended length. High roof. It's very quick, 2nd gear is fun with the turbo.
I've had it for a year and a bit.
I like the look of the look of the transit over the other European style work vans. Also there were great reviews, primarily that of Spencer on here.
