Transportation Company Brands with Truck Graphics and USDOT Lettering in Vancouver WA!

By | Truck Lettering, USDOT Lettering, Vehicle Vinyl Lettering | No Comments

Vehicle graphics are the best way to market your business when on the road. No one is disputing that. The problem is that when you’re hauling cargo from here to Beantown 24/7, it’s difficult to put your rig out of commission long enough to give your ride some style. Thankfully, Krontrans Transport came to Specialty Graphic Solutions where we worked with his schedule to install truck graphics and USDOT lettering in Vancouver, WA for transportation companies.

Kron Gets the Job Done

Based on Southeast 136th Avenue in Vancouver, Krontrans Transport, Inc. is the business of an owner-operator long haul trucker. The enterprise is relatively new and looking to build its clientele. He transports paper products, fresh produce, refrigerated food, general freight, beverages, and much more. Basically, if you need to get something from Point A to Point B, he’s your man.

When an entrepreneur who does so much to help local businesses transport their goods came to us for truck graphics and USDOT lettering in Vancouver, WA for transportation companies, we said, “10-4, Good Buddy!” Krontrans had a gorgeous Volvo truck, and he wanted us to help him boost its looks. Fortunately, this wasn’t our mighty sign makers’ first rodeo.

We Kept Krontrans on the Road

Our first step with any project is to meet with the client to discuss their goals and to get a look at their vehicle. This is kind of awkward when the project is a lobby sign, and there’s no apparent reason for us to check out their vehicle, but alas, we do an excellent job, so no one complains.

In addition to USDOT numbers, Krontrans wanted us to make his graphic logo a reality. Based on his description, we created the logo, a horsehead with an element of forward motion done in Chrome to match the existing Volvo lettering, which he wanted to keep.

Since the truck is his livelihood and if it isn’t moving he isn’t making money, we did the job in multiple phases to minimize the impact on his operations. As the proverb goes, “a rolling stone gathers no moss,” and we don’t want our customers to be mossy on our account.

Nothing “Phases” Us

The first phase was to remove the old vinyl and to take measurements for the new design. This was a big leap of faith for the owner because if the print wasn’t just right, it would mean more downtime. He then hit the road with a delivery, and when he came on back, we gave him art proofs of what the finished product would look like. He approved it and hit the road yet again. While he was haulin’ widgets, we printed the graphics and pre-staged everything to ensure the installation went quickly and smoothly.

When Krontrans came by one final time, our Mighty Sign Makers quickly installed the graphics, and off he went again. In the end, we delivered, and Krontrans couldn’t be happier. Now, his logo and our work are seen everywhere he goes.

6 Facts About Truck Wraps

6 Facts About Truck Wraps That Will Surprise You!

Trucks have taken over the roads. Sure, you’ll likely see your occasional Subaru or Prius since this is the Pacific Northwest, but for those people who need a vehicle for work, the truck reigns supreme.  Here are some facts about truck wraps.

Yet, you hardworking folks who use these vehicles may not realize that your truck is holding out on you. It’s being lazy. Of course, it’s still hauling you and your gear, but what is it doing to market your company? Unless you have truck graphics for Vancouver, WA, it isn’t doing much to boost your brand.

Does this sound like crazy talk? Before closing your browser and dismissing the idea, take a minute to consider these six important facts about truck wraps:

Fact 1: Truck graphics can be incorporated into a lease or new purchase financing.

Some lenders will include the cost of your truck wrap in the upfront costs you pay for the vehicle. So, you end up paying for it all in your monthly payments. We have experience providing estimates to banks and truck owners to help with this process.

Fact 2: A wrapped truck is a 24/7 billboard at work for your organization.

When you wrap your truck, you’re basically getting a billboard on wheels. Your truck is marketing your brand, your message, and your company wherever you go. Each month, you can count on tens of thousands of people seeing your truck.

Fact 3: Your Message Can Even Continue on Your Windows.

“What the heck are you talking about, SGS? If I put graphics on my windows, I’m putting the safety of myself and all of those people I hold most dear in serious jeopardy!” Not true! With vinyl window perf, you can still see out of your windows while showcasing your information on the exterior.

Fact 4: You don’t need to give up your truck for days on end while your wrap is being installed.

We know you need your truck to get your work done. You can’t afford to be without it for long. Fortunately, we can wrap most trucks in less than a day. This is much faster than if you were to get a custom paint job.

Fact 5: Track wraps are an affordable marketing investment.

It’s time for a little math. Feel free to take out your calculator. Let’s say a truck wrap costs you $2,500. Most wrap vinyl is rated for five years of use or more, but for the sake of being conservative, we’ll assume the wrap will last three years. This would mean that your investment cost you under $70 per month. You can’t get that sort of deal from any other advertising media.

Fact 6: You Can Just Wrap Some of Your Truck

Of course, it looks really cool and garners the most attention when you wrap your entire truck, but you can still make a huge impact with a smartly-designed partial wrap. We can even work with the colors of your vehicle to make it look like you have a full wrap at a fraction of the price of that product.

This is just a taste of what vinyl graphics can do for your business. If you’re ready to really put your truck to work for you, contact the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions for a free, no-strings-attached quote!
