Show Me Your Vehicle Lettering


I'm going to be getting vinyl lettering done on my truck in a couple weeks and would like to see what some of you all have. The lady doing the lettering has a few concepts but not sure that I'm in love with them (she normally does more sporty cars, not business vehicles).

Just looking for some inspiration.

Also, what color vinyl would you go with? I have picked a metallic charcoal to go over the red paint.

make sure she uses a good vinyl and get a warranty in writing, because it seams as they tell you it's a 7 yr warranty but the vinyl barely holds up 2-3 years and they always seam to have a excuse!

Re: Show Me Your Vehicle Lettering


Here is my truck.

The vinyl is 6 year vinyl, from what she said it's the better grade.

Californiadecks, is that barcode direct to your site or do you have a forwarding address so that you can track the visits? I have seen QR codes on a lot of stuff lately, but curious if people actually scan them. I was contemplating doing a QR for either my site or Facebook page.

It's a van, but you get the idea. I've always thought that less is more.

Ive been in the same situation, It just takes me about an hour to get the truck parallel parked I always look for two together if I can.

I hate working in a couple towns, because its mostly street parking.

I've had good luck with the bar code when parked at the city. More then once, I've come out from getting permits and saw someone snapping a picture of it

Good for you.

Maybe I will try it. I own 4 domains that all redirect to my main site. I've though about using QR on the truck, flyers, or print ads each using a different URL so I can see what brings me traffic.
