Hi,

Alot of you already know, I finally got a new trailer for my business!
I'm not really in a rush, but I'm hoping to have some kind of signs/graphics on my trailer by this upcoming mowing season.

I already have small magnetic signs just for the truck doors, but I'm hoping to "customize" the trailer a little but more.

I'll post a pic of it, but it's only an open trailer. so there is not a lot of room of sides to work with for graphics. I'm hoping just to at least get my logo and phone number on the trailer, or anything else that will fit.

Thanks and I hope AMW or someone can help me out!

Well you could go two ways...

1) get the stuff and apply it to the areas.

or

2) get aluminum signs to put on the sides & rear, which will give you more room to have your info. Then you just mount the aluminum to the trailer.

Send me what you are looking for and sizes and i will send you a quote. Tony@amw-graphics.com

Talk to you then.

So what do you personally think is a better idea for my situation?

For some reason to me, aluminum signs that are attached by bolt/welding whatever don't seem as proffesional. http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

BUt, it may be the only way to go.

Or I could just get a lot of graphics on the truck? idk

well one way to get away from the look of a separate aluminum sign would to use...

A full color print that covers the whole sign (no white showing).

or

We can use aluminum that has a black finish, which will "blend in" to the trailer.

The main reason i would do the aluminum is that you can remove them when you outgrow this trailer and put them on another open trailer as well as you will have a nice flat area instead of the small spaces between the sqr. aluminum tubing which would "chop up" the text/graphics.

Hope that made sense.

Well yeah I guess that would work with the aluminum signs.

On average, how much do these cost?

And also, I do have a logo that I made myself, but I havent really used it on anything so I think I want a new one. LOL

Thanks

Ok

Thanks again, Steve.

I'll post some pics of the logo and signs so you guys can see how they turned out. Also, when some of the snow melts around here, I was planning on posting some pics of all my current equipment, trailer, the truck, and everything else.
