rear window lettering from signspecialist.com

Recommended Posts

So you may be shocked (as most of you know I remove every decal, including the Jeep ones, from all my vehicles), however, I've actually added a sticker now!

I used http://www.signspecialist.com to get the custom lettering done, and here's what I can say about them

 

Pros

 

  • Website lets you upload a custom font.
  • Website shows you exactly what dimensions everything will come out to be and gives you a preview of the final product as well.
  • Website has pricing plain as day (nearly everywhere else I looked wanted you to email them or fill out a form for a custom quote... lame!)
  • Pricing seemed very fair.
  • Shipping was fast (ordered on a Friday afternoon and received Tuesday).
  • Excellent install instructions.

Cons

 

  • Website looks like it was designed in the 80's and doesn't inspire confidence that they are a modern internet aware shop that is going to get your order done correctly and quickly (fortunately, this proved to just be a perception and not the reality).
  • There's no way to adjust the tracking (spacing between letters) when ordering... all you can do is stretch the letters wider if you want things to come out wider or narrower (which would cause ugly distortions IMO). I would have preferred to add just a bit of tracking to mine to increase legibility from afar.

 

We'll just have to see how the overall product lasts, and I'll keep you posted on that. But so far, happy with my purchase.

Michael at AZ Print n Ship has been doing our stickers for the 4x4 Ham group. Great product and service and I like supporting a local business. I highly recommend him.

i totally agree with supporting local business, if they are competitive. if i have to pick up a phone, then you've already lost my business. i do everything on the net and i like it that way. hell, i don't even have to pick up a phone to order chinese food or pizza anymore.

 

if 2 different companies both offer nice websites that take orders, accept multiple forms of payment, and are easy to use and navigate, then i'll give preference to the local one every time, even at the cost of a couple bucks... but if you aren't on the net, you lost me.

 

at least i ordered from a small business in Tennessee, not a sweatshop in china ;)

KSmith,

Looks good. What font did you use? Looks like stone.

 

Two other things:

-Where did you get the cool license plate? ;)

-Looks like you got your rear bumper again huh?:eek:

thanks, it's the same font as in our logo, and it is supposed to look like a "stamp" - it's called "Respess Capitals Medium"

 

- photoshop :)

- that bumper damage... hmmm... i think it was from the time you did woodpecker with us!
