Here is the whole design.

Hi Tony,

That is amazing. Since I still no nothing really about this, can you tell me if such a wrap can be used during the holiday season and then later taken off to be reused again next year?

Also please send me pics of this when it is installed! I gotta see it!

This one wouldn't be able to be removed and put back on.

The tailgate is only used thru winter, they take it off the rest of the year.

You wouldn't want to reuse it, for something like that we would use a different material which would be cheaper for the customer and come off very easy when its time.
The cost are low enough that you could just do a new one each year.

I will post pictures when its done.

What's an average price for one?

This may be too involved but what if you had a thin layer of fiberglass put on the back of the truck that you could put on and take off and then had the wrap over it so you could then put it all on and off! Can you imagine how cool it would be if you could change these things for each season! My gosh that would be fantastic and then be able to have different offers on them for the different seasons.

Like snow plowing, fall clean up, spring clean up and mowing.

Well you could get a new one for each season advertising whatever service and/or even prices (starting at, like carpet cleaners have). You would want to change them anyway depending on whats the going rates or service you want to push the most at that time.

Think about the amount of people who see it!

I am sure 1 new customer from someone seeing it will in most cases pay for it many times over.
I think changing it up all the time keeps people looking at it over and over, which we all know is a good thing.

Tony,

How about this. A monthly flat rate fee a lawn care business could pay to you and with that they are given X amount of seasonal wraps throughout the year!

Can you imagine that!

I bet lawn care business owners would sign up if you put something like this together and it would guarantee you money all year long!

Tony... say I want it to last 6-12 months...

Steve... man that's an awesome idea for Tony! I would be interested in that deal!

Last at least 1 year $99 if you design it.
(most tailgates)

If we design it from scratch it would depend on what you want and how complex.

Send me an email and let me know what you would want.

The design here is at least 3 hours of work, its pretty detailed.

That is just fantastic! How long did it take to put it on? Can it be removed without damaging the paint?

Thanks!

Total time installing less then 1 hour.

I would expect someone who doesn't do this all the time to take about 2 hours.

It can be removed pretty easy, and without damage to the paint.

This particular one is good for 3-5 years.
