Are Your Fleet Graphics Ready for the New Year?

There used to be a time not too long ago when standard black letters on the side of your work vans were enough to get your business’s name and phone number across. This is still a viable option. However, fleet graphics have come a long way since those days. When you update all of your vehicles with fleet graphics for Central Oregon that are consistent across your entire fleet, your work trucks will perform double duty for you: they will haul your equipment, workers, and products as well as advertise your brand.

Fleet Truck Lettering Says It All

The most affordable way to put your company name, website, and phone number on your cars, vans, trucks, or even boats is with fleet truck lettering. At its most basic, vinyl lettering comes in a variety of standard fonts, colors, and sizes. Or, if you want to make sure your branding is on point, letters and numbers can be custom printed to match the fonts and colors you use on your other marketing materials.

Many entrepreneurs figure they can save some cash by installing their letters themselves. We strongly discourage this for a number of reasons. First, the professionals know how to make sure the letters are lined up perfectly. They have experience with this. When an amateur does it, it shows. Secondly, it may invalidate the warranty on the letters and make it so they do not last for many years into the future. Going with a professional installation will save you money in the long run.

Don’t Forget Vinyl Decals

Vinyl decals, or spot graphics, are the ideal way to put your organization’s logo on your fleet. These decals are printed out on top-quality vinyl adhesive films using a full-color, wide format digital printer. Any images, photos, or other graphics can be rendered on these decals. They are also a good solution for showing off your handiwork or bestselling products, and they work well in conjunction with vinyl lettering.
