There's really only one problem I see with it though, The decals are great looking but I think they would look awesome on a Dodge !!!

I will once I wash it. I took them off two weeks ago to wash the truck and forgot to put them back on. By the time I remembered, the truck had a layer of dust on it. I won't put magnets on a dirty surface.
I actually have three of them - one on each side and one on the tailgate. I move that one to the side closest to pedestrian traffic after I park.

I think that having the lettering can only increase the amount of cards taken.

If someone is walking up the sidewalk and sees a "blank" truck as they approach, and then sees the "Take a Card" on the side as they walk by, they have to process too much info in just seconds.

With the lettering, they can see what the purpose of the parked truck is as they approach. By the time they see the card holder they have already processed thoughts like "Hmmm... I've been meaning to get those shrubs in the back yard trimmed" and THEN they are presented with a convenient way to get the info that's on the back of the truck without needing to memorize it, or write it down.

(if that makes sense - LOL)

A cool way would be to also have a QR code they can scan with their phone to add contact info to their phone or to email, call, or whatever you want.

(Yes, we print them also)

We are adding them to our ads to make it easyer on the client to make a call to us or pull a product up online and order.

I'm not making this up...

Just TODAY I noted one of the small letters (website) has a corner lifting just a TEEEENY bit. I doubt it's the fault of the vinyl though - I'm guessing something caught it.

Everything else is fine. Looks as good as it did when installed.




Totally freaky that you asked TODAY.

Heh. I just went to do an estimate for some hedge work.

The lady said she saw my truck when she was out one day and wrote the number down.
