Examples of Our Truck Lettering

What Is Truck Lettering?

Vinyl truck lettering is a long lasting way to identify or advertise on a vehicle. You can see our work throughout New York City and beyond, with lettering and wraps on all sides of trucks on the road.

Commercial vehicle lettering is custom cut from heavy-duty vinyl film created by Avery Dennison or 3M. The vinyl is backed with a paint safe adhesive so that letters can be easily installed and removed on vehicles. Available vinyl lettering options include:
  • Truck Lettering – Custom vinyl lettering can be created to show a company name, contact details, or other information and easily installed on the side or door of vehicles.
  • Truck Door DecalsGreat for single colored logos or graphics, a vinyl decal can be placed on the door to offer more customization or identify a fleet vehicle.
  • DOT Number Signs – Vinyl lettering is ideal for the number signs required on commercial vehicles by the Department of Transportation.
Each letter or decal is cut directly from the vinyl and can be customized in many different ways. Some of the examples of customization include:
  • Color – We stock over 20 colors of factory-colored vinyl film, including gold and silver leaf for metallic lettering. We also have ways to create custom lettering prints in essentially any colors.
  • Font – Vinyl lettering is machine cut by a CNC router that can make small, precise cuts so any custom font is possible.
  • Size – Letters can be made in any size, and customized to fit a specific vehicle’s dimensions.
  • Finish – Gloss and matte finishes are available for truck lettering.
Our team of expert designers can work with your specific vehicle or fleet to create lettering and determine which customization options will work best.

Frequently Asked Questions and Resources

What is Your Return Policy?

Your satisfaction is our goal. While we cannot offer returns on most custom products, we will accept any returns when it is our error, and we have created something outside of scope. Any time we have made an error, we will accept a return and discuss the idea of creating a new sign in its place. If you ever receive a broken sign, or you find that a sign isn’t working properly (such as a neon sign), please let us know right away.

What Signs Are Best For Indoors?

All signs last longer when they are inside of your property. Some signs, like neon signs and foam board signs, are almost exclusively meant for indoors. However, metal signs, vinyl signs, aluminum signs, wood signs, and nearly all the signs listed above for outdoor signs also work great as indoor signs depending on your needs.

What Signs Are Best For Outdoors?

There are many different signs that are durable enough for the outdoors. Some of the best materials include wooden signs, aluminum signs, plastic signs, and PVC signs. Banners and vinyl signs can also be great outdoors, but may not be meant to provide you with a permanent sign solution as the weather can cause staining and wrinkles. Many types of lighted signs, such as channel letters and light box signs, are meant for the outdoors.

What Are “Wraps” and How Do They Work?

Wraps are pieces of thin, self-adhesive vinyl. They fit on flat surfaces, such as metal and glass. They can come in black and white or full color, and they pop from whatever surface they are affixed to. We create primarily vehicle wraps and window wraps, branding your property, cars, and trucks and making sure that they provide you with a rolling advertisement that is designed to last.

How Can I Care For My Signs So They Last Longer?

Every sign has its own unique needs. Small metal signs need only be wiped down when it is dusty, and can withstand heavy cleaners. Banners can only be cleaned with gentle soap and water, and can only be rolled up – never folded – or they will have permanent creases and possibly damage the lettering. It is best to ask us after you order your sign, and we’ll gladly give you the information you need to continue to care for your sign.

What Are Sign Rentals?
