What is the process for vehicle lettering?
Vehicle lettering can be installed using a wet or dry method. The wet method involves water and soap, while the dry method utilizes a “hinge” process that does not require any liquid. Both methods are equally effective, but the wet method is typically more forgiving of mistakes. The professionals at West Allis Blue are properly trained in both methods and can usually complete a lettering project in just a few short days.
Tips for perfect vehicle lettering
For a flawless project, follow these tried-and-true tips from West Allis Blue:
- Choose a larger font: Pick fonts that are at least 3 inches tall so they are easy to see.
- Choose colors wisely: Pick a color scheme that contrasts with the color of your vehicle to ensure maximum readability.
- Keep it simple: Do not write a “novel” on your vehicle! Keep it simple by including your business name, a single advertising line, and your phone number or web address.
- Consider an outline: Though outlines cost a little more, they ensure the text of your vehicle lettering “pops” and gets the attention it deserves!
- Check your local permitting rules: Permits are not usually required for vehicle lettering, but it’s never a bad idea to check local permitting guidelines to ensure you are in compliance with local rules.
