Question Truck Vinyl Decals

Hey fellow lawn businesses;

I have one quick question. What is a website for very affordable vinyl decals for the tail gate and side doors? I had gone to a local shop and had gotten a quote for $55 for just tailgate, but maybe $200 some odd for the 3. If you guys could shed some insight if that is a good deal or a site online to go to.

Thanks,
Happy Bidding and Mowing Everyone!

Here's a thread I started that shows my lettering I had made for my truck cap rear window.
http://www.gopherforum.com/showthrea...ight=lettering

Prices vary a LOT and some quote "by the letter", while others quote by the entire image area. It can be tough to get a side by side price comparison.
Other factors like "colors" come into play as well.

One local (national chain) sign place wanted $75 just to apply vinyl.

No reason not to have more than just the back window done. I'm getting my sides done too. The more opportunity for people to view your info the better.

I completely agree. I am going to do a couple jobs and probably invest in the local shop to print them and install them. Less hassle and will look professional so why not.

Installing is not hard if you end up wanting to do it your self
