Your exactly right about the extra digit. It does sometimes confuse people. I am dropping the toll free number though. The company I was using to forward my calls kept ringing phantom calls to my phone all day long and charging me per call. It is time to get a new wrap for my truck anyways

How many guys have done a wrap? I'm considering doing some sort of a wrap on my new truck.

I just want to know if people seem to comment on it more than normal lettering.

I think designed right some wraps look great. Have seen some really eye catching ones recently but also some that are way too busy and cheesy.

I use my truck for personal use too so have always had either mags or the vinyl lettering. I prefer more low key

couple of drawbacks to a truck-wrap (opinion, strictly)
  • no resale value (even if it's a dying horse, it has some resale value.
  • If you get in some type of fender bender or something, the "canvas" is compromised

My granite guys had theirs removed in a few hours when they traded their truck in for a new one

Another problem with wraps is that they are printed via ink jets and the colors are small dots, halftones, so they don't have the longevity of paint or vinyl. Premium cast vinyl has an outdoor life of 7 years minimum, much longer with less UVs.

It looks like the popularity is dying off here, I don't see them like I did when it first became available. I think after the first wrap goes most people say the heck with it.

Question:

I take mileage as opposed to actual cost of the vehicles maintenance for accounting purposes.

When I get my van lettered can I write it off as advertising?
