    Hi all just moved into new unit (about 8 weeks ago), put signs up loved them but now think their a bit graffiti looking, although every one else i know, friends, family, customers & fellow sign makers say their OK, but just need some more feed back, i have since taken delivery of a cadet with sign-lab7 & done a new design by hand & in photo-shop, have applied this to my van, will let you see it soon as thinking of re-doing unit signs front & back like this. cheers
    hopefully pictures are visible ? – if not will take some more & re-post.
    i would be grateful for some advice on how to upload better quality pictures, size, file format dpi resolution etc. thanks.

    Don’t change them mate they look great, if you want to add that you do digital printing then just add a different type of sign to the brick wall or go for an A board or similar and do a more “corporate” design, your’e in a seaside place and your signs reflect that type of signage but you don’t want to frighten off the non tourist businesses either, if it was me I’d do my vehicle with 2 different designs one on each side.
    If I’m right I don’t think the web shows a greater dpi than 96?? and I’d keep my size to less than 650, I’m sure Robs done instructions on this at the top of the Show us your stuff! section?

    cheers lads, thats made me feel a bit better, think your right steve, i need a little more coporate look. so will put new van style logo at back (front) of unit. this is still sub tropical styling, but sharper looking, might also put smaller version at front, over reception or something, have posted pic of van, this was done in corel & photoshop & printed on cadet. cheers pete . artrage. i will paint & airbrush signage, as cost to much to print.

    I really like your style.
    It looks American (I mean that as a compliment)
    And it also looks real “Letterhead”.
    It’s different and it stands out.
    You just need to shrink the size of your pix to 500 pixels wide.
    If you want to add a service, you can just add it to that side sign.
