Switching over to a 6'X12' Enclosed Trailer. Looking for advice on sign designs etc
Permalink  
 


I have gone through many truck rigs, open steel trailer rigs and 2 other enclosed traier setups. Never did have any great signs on any of them, just magnetic signs on my truck doors.

Looking for some pictures of what others have, that I can copy [ just kidding] but really, get some good ideas from. Most of you know, I developed [ lets say ] "concentration problems" [ to put it mildly ] in the last few years. { Maybe wearing a mask would have been a good idea after all?}

Anyway. Pictures and thoughts will be appreciated. The trailer came with 3 signs and turned over, they are new and shiney on the back-ready for lettering. The trailer walls needed painting, so I sprayed sanded it, wiped it down with Liquid Surface Prep and coated it with my airless with 2 thin coats of acrylic latex and it looks fine. However, I don't want to wrap it. I don't trust a non-factory baked on finish to last a nd last. In a couple of years, I may need to remove the signs and repaint it?

Look forward to seeing and hearing what you all think.

Here are pictures of the trailer - it's 6' 10" top to bottom and 12' long

Signs are: 6' 5" x 5' Ladder Side

4' x 3' Door Side

16"x3' Front

Thanks,

Chuck

I just did a body wrap on box truck. It cost 1800 and it should last a couple of years. It is a rolling billboard so I think it is worth the money.

Hi Eric.

I really don't need to use it to generate much work. I have 23 years of customers calling, plus what comes from online.

I just want to make it look professional.

I was hoping for something in the $200 - $400.00 range for lettering-maybe a logo?

I don't really know, because I have never done it. confuse

Make sure you get a vinyl that is good quality. My guy uses 7-10 year vinyl made by 3M. I would also get some references...the first guy I used did poor quality work and used cheap vinyl....the next one I used was awesome! Good luck.

If you are looking for good logo and lettering, you might be a little low on what you are thinking it's gonna cost. Take Eric's advise. Make sure you get good vinyl, or you are not going to be happy. I know some of the guys that run enclosed trailers coat the floor and a few feet up the walls with truck bed liner.

It cost me 700 to letter my trailer. After you prep the floor screw down 3/4 plywood. you will have some spills and the plywood takes the brunt of it. Esp. around the tank area.
