Frequently Asked Questions
HOW CAN VEHICLE LETTERING HELP YOUR BUSINESS?
Vehicle lettering will provide you with the most BANG for your advertising buck!
News paper ads, cannot come close to the dollar for dollar impact of a well designs, and professionally installed lettering package.
News paper ads last for one issue, your message will be working for you for years.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
It is not possible to give “package pricing”, as each client has different preferences & budgets, but here are some rough prices to give you an idea of the costs involved.
Pricing range for light cars, trucks and vans $100 - $500 for a modest application. Cube vans start around $500.
We do not start cutting or printing, without first providing you with at least a rough quote, full colour proofs, and do not proceed until we get the “Go Ahead!” from you.
WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE?
While samples are helpful, we believe in the adage that “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
Once we receive your deposit, we then begin building your project. We then provide you with a digital image of your vehicle, with the lettering super-imposed on it.
We can email these images to you, then respond to your requests for changes etc, and reply with the new layout.
Once you are satisfied with the layout, we order in material as necessary, and begin cutting and printing the vinyl in preparation for them to be applied. At this point we call you to make arrangements to get your vehicle in to install the decals and graphics.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The size and complexity of the job usually dictates how long it takes. Once we have a good idea of your needs, we can forecast how long it will take.
We have been pinstriping cars for over 28 years!
A simple line, placed well and sectioned properly, is sometimes the finishing touch to your car or truck, without breaking your wallet.
OK, HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
A double pinstripe on a car, both sides, end to end, starts at $90.
WHAT IF I'M NOT GOOD WITH COLOURS?
Colour matching is not a pure science, and tastes can vary, but we know how colours work, and why they work together. We can help you choose the right combination for you.
DOES THIS STUFF STICK GOOD?
There are two reasons why people have problems with striping or lettering sticking properly.
1) One is preparation. Our years of experience has given us vast opportunity to develop our unique 2 step cleaning system, to ensure, full contact of the product with your vehicles surface.
2) The 2nd reason for poor adhesion is the quality of the product. We use, almost exclusively, 3M brand pinstriping, and have found it to be 2nd to none.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HAVE INSTALLED?
Depending on the complexity of the job, anywhere from a half hour to 8 hours.
WHAT IF I WANT SOMETHING MORE THAN A PINSTRIPE?
Great question!! Then you might want to consider what we call "Auto Graphics" or "Custom Graphics"
HOW MUCH DO AUTO-GRAPHICS COST?
They vary drastically in size, design, colour, etc. We provide images for you with the price. An average price would be in the $3-500 range.
I'M NOT SURE WHAT I WANT, IS THAT A PROBLEM?
