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. Thanks again for your recent order, and sorry for the delay in getting your design to you. Attached you will notice a layout for your sign idea. Let me know what you think. Keep in mind monitors vary GREATLY in the way they display colors – with metal flake silver impossible. If an exact color match is needed, samples can be mailed right out.   

I tend to agree, pink is not the best idea for a Kenworth.  However, with the colors of the truck and lettering, a metal flake silver will give good contrast (keep in mind the attached is just a ‘photo-shop’ of that color). 

Again, let me know what you think.   Once we get the final go ahead your signs will mail within 1 working day. If you have any questions let me know.  

Thanks, Toby            

 Type of Lettering Custom Truck Lettering; Price 80.00; Colors Olympic Blue; shadowing in pink or metal flake silver or teal; Desired Fonts and Text “Mike” in smaller text straight across “COLEMAN” in larger text in an arch over the brand of “MC” (the M needs to be on it’s side pointing towards the C) “Lewiston; ID” below this in the same font. Font of Morocco for all lettering please with Shadowing for all lettering. Coloring; we would like the Olympic Blue; however; we aren’t sure on the shadowing color. Would it be possible to see a few examples of shadowing. My father seems to think the pink would be a good shadowing color; making the font stand out; I am not sure that is a good idea or not. It is for his farm truck; and I can’t see him driving around with anything pink on his truck. I think a Metal Flake Teal or Metal Flake Silver might look better. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This lettering is to go on a dark blue Kenworth 1985 truck.
