I am doing a complete wrap on my trailer. My wife sat down with someone to start the design process. It's a start but, I want to make some changes. I thought I would post hear and get your input.
Thanks
Jeff

I wouldn't put minor elec and minor roof. Either don't do the job or sub it out if you do get it.

x2 about the "minor" plumbing, electrical, etc. If you are not licensed for it - don't advertise it.

Might be my OCD, but I don't like that the trailer has two different ads on each side. I am all about symmetry.

In Florida, we are able to do roof repairs under $300 without a roofing contractors license. We usually do a vent boot or a few shingles particularly when someone has a water stain on the ceiling.

As for minor electrical and plumbing, it is similar. We can change out a fan or light fixture but, not run new lines. Plumbing is the same.
We don't sub out. If someone wants to update a little, we can do it. We don't remodel.

Thanks,
Jeff

It say right under your screen name Remodel that you typed, so I assumed you were a GC.

I agree on the symmetry, both sides the same. The left side looks better to me for a moving billboard. You have the back to put all of the details on.

You should change the web site listing as that address got picked up by some squatters.

Recommend that you be consistent. i.e. "wood rot repair" OR "wood rot" but not both terms on the same vehicle. I think "wood repair" with the photo would be sufficiently clear. (Similar issue with "termite damage")

For the name of your business I'd keep the typeface and the type effects the same along with the same kerning and/or intercharacter spacing. The back is different than the sides. Same colors in your logo if possible.

Agree with getting rid of the "minor". Either keep the roofing and electrical terms and qualify them well over the phone or don't advertise the services.

I think it all looks great, and I would keep the design on the right side mainly for flyers and envelopes.

It looks like you are using a professional to design it and I hope it brings you plenty of business. :thumbsup:

I would seperate the exterior work from the interior work, this way it doesnt look like your a roofer who installs cabinets,or a tile guy who builds gazebos JMO:whistling and you gotta do something about the Name, id go with Handy Little Helper!

The right side is too busy, the lettering is too small. The left side is much better, the depth of the art work is impressive.

Contractor license, phone numbers and your cell number need to be large enough to be seen at 50MPH
