Description of service

I went to a custom sign designer to have some vinyl signs made with my business's name on them and to have them put on the company vehicles. I sat down with the owner, told him what I want, the colors that I thought would be right and the size of the font and style. He showed me different styles, options, colors, and types of vinyl products to use. The first hour we just made up several sketches of ideas on paper, put it into the computer and just had several trail and error attempts. by doing it on paper and on the computer first it saved money because we wasn't wasting any of the vinyl material. I told him I wanted the most durable type and one that holds it's color. After a about a hour we both agreed on a design and then printed it. It was really neat watching the machine cut the material to the actual lettering and design of the sign. then we stuck it on a piece of clear plastic and applied that on the truck to just get an idea if we wanted to mess with it or not. It looked really good, so he took the truck and washed it and put special cleaner on it before he applied the signs. We put the one on the back window first and it went on with ease. The guy showed me how to clean the trucks, how to prep the area and finally how to apply the signs and take the air pockets out of them. When I left his shop 3 hours later my bill for enough signs to do 3 trucks and one aircraft was only 225.00, I was shocked.

Review of Service

Excellent!!! he was very professional but yet friendly, was more worried about what it looked like then I did!! He went out of his way showing me the steps and explained everything that we was doing very clearly.


It is one of the cheapest and most efficient form of advertising. I would suggest it to anybody that is in business.
