Here is what somebody made up for me. Not particularly fond of any of them. I want to remain fairly simple yet flashy! These will be going on a metallic blue truck with chrome rocker panels for the time being, eventually going to a white or silver truck. Any input or help would be great. Thanks

I like the top one the most because it is clear and BOLD! That sign would certainly stand out and it would look amazing on a large enclosed trailer! I can't wait to see some truck pictures when you get them made!

I am sure you can come up with some better ones. Did you give your designer some good direction? I don't see how it will 'pop' on a blue truck...they would look better on a white. Need to incorporate some chrome lettering in there to use for blue.

I told the designer specifically that it was going on a blue truck with chrome rockers, and possibly to a gray or white truck in a few years. I also gave her an example of something i had in mind. But none of these had to do with my reference and to me wont look good on a blue truck. Im looking at them as a starting point and looking for some ideas or insight on them.

Dont have any current color scemes, as I said Im using a blue truck with chrome rockers for now as that is what i have. Eventually i would like my company trucks to be white or silver. All my trailers will be black. As far as appearal goes, Prolly black coats/sweatshirts. T shirts will prolly me a lighter color but not sure on what. I dont have any idea as far as logo colors. I hope this helps you. Thanks Brad

Here is an idea that can work across all color schemes. I would still need to adjust some images and define the layout...but you get the idea.

hey thanks for those, they look great. Here are a couple more examples i had made up. Now its choosing the right one!! Also the letter which is gray is really a chrome but her computer wont fill it chrome and that is my truck with the example on it.

I wonder how it would look if the chrome lettering were outlined in black? Would that help it stand out more?

I have seen signs with chrome letters and they are allways hard to see!!! Just my few cents that I have!!
