Journal of Design Proofs

How does the design process work when you order a sign from Below you will find our running journal of designs and sign specifications for Magnetic Signs, Banners, Yard Signs, Metal Signs, Temporary Signs, and Truck Lettering. These are actual orders from previous customers.

Our journal is updated daily with new designs. We only post in our journal the initial layout designed to the customers specifications. By the time the sign goes in production, many times, the design has changed dramatically from the initial proof you'll see below. Such is the nature of the design process. Never-the-less, this should give you a good feel as to how we and our customers design custom sign orders. If you have any questions, as usual, let us know - we'll be glad to help.

Hello. Very nice. Attached you notice a layout for your truck lettering idea. Let me know what you think. One layout shows the lettering on the Peterbilt. The other is a close-up of the lettering. Depending on how you view the picture, be sure to ‘zoom in’ to see the details,

Sizes are:

Door lettering 9.5″x30″

Sleeper lettering 8″x17″

Truck Number: 3″x5.5″

Keep in mind monitors vary GREATLY in the way they display colors. If an exact color match is needed, samples can be mailed right out. Once we get the final go ahead your signs will mail within 2 working days. If you have any questions let me know.

Thanks, Toby


Sign Details given in previous email:
Thank you for the email Toby, We will be removing the stripes and any stickers that are currently on the truck so you can go with the specs that you have. The main concern we have is the lettering on the front doors where their is a small window below. When it was measured before (I don’t have the truck available at his moment to measure) it was 20×15 within the strips. The sleeper portion within the strips starting at the first letter was measured at 15×12. We’ve did not measure the portion on the nose but then again, it will not matter due to the removal of the stripes.
Also, I spoke with the owner and he wanted to make one little change to the information on the door. He wants the telephone number to appear between the name and the city also thestate CA does not need to be referenced at all.
Thanks again for taking the time to get these questions answered.



Lynda E. Hello. Thanks again for your order. I’m working on your layout and had one quick question about sizes. It would be good to get an overall size (ie — 12″x24″ or the like) for each area we will be lettering. Not just the letter height of each line,,, since lettering can be surprising longer than expected if this is not figured in. So, is it possible to get the overall size for the door, sleeper, and hood areas where the lettering will be? You can either give the ‘the size to fit within’ or the ‘size you’d like the overall lettering’. So, take a few minutes with a tape measure and let me know what you come up with. If you have any questions let me know. Thanks Toby ps — I do have the specs for this Peterbilt (except for the sleeper length), but you have extra decals that may need to be worked around (it looks like ifta stickers and a stripe on the sleeper and another decal on the door and finally, it would be good to get an overall size for the truck number so it will ‘nest’ well around the stripe).
