Do you think this is a vinyl sign on the snow plow? I like the way it looks but I wonder how it's done and if it is a good idea to do? I mean how long could such a sign last?

I am guessing that it is painted on...but I could be wrong

No they are vinyl. I am getting ready to do the same thing to mine. Arent the graphics on the plows when you buy them vinyl. they do last a few seasons.

we do these and they can be done in vinyl, and there are a few things that can be done to help make them last longer.
I would expect them to last 3-6 years depending on how crazy you plow and how well you take care of your equipment.

Do you have to spray over the signs with a clear paint? Or no?

Do you have any pictures of the plows you have done? That is a great product idea to sell.

No, You dont have to.
We can put a clear film over it that will help them last a little longer.
But IMO i would just put the vinyl on there and look at it as a ever othr year expense..or maybe every 3 or 4 years depending on whos in the driver seat.
the cost of it starts at about $50 without install or shipping.

I am sure we have some pictures somewhere, its just a matter of finding some. I will try to find some and post a few.

Yep, and its not very hard to install by yourself.

In the summer you can put it facing a road for some added advertising!

Here is a quote of part of an email we got from Mark of "Marks Premier Landscaping" after the fist snow with the vinyl on his plows.

I think it says it all...

"those numbers are awesome, the snow doesnt stick to the plow as much either. You should patent the idea or something, give it 2 years and everyone will have it. haha, AND they already paid for themselves by people seeing them.

Thanks Again"

Thanks Mark, We appreciate doing business with you!

I love it. May I also add, we had a past storm of 8-12 inches in spots, and that truck went throught 3 tanks of gas and over 30+ hours of plowing and it still looks brand new, none of the vynil came off, and it helped the snow not stick to it.

I find myself relentlessly giving tonys number to other contractors. LOL. I say relentlessly because I want to be the only guy with it on his plow, but people keep asking me.
