    Here’s a picture of one of their vans which I lettered today. Previously all lettering was in a single colour (purple) but now they are happy to spend a bit more to get signs with a better quality look to them. With their latest van we have introduced gold as a second colour, as well as the bevelled edge effect mentioned above.

    It’s good to see people people pushing quality work. Great vinyl effect.

    nice one phill 😉 nice & smart
    how did you do it in the end.. is it cut vinyl or did you use the pc600 on the letters?
    is that a gold you have used.. looks well just cant really tell from the pictures but i reckon it should give a good rich feel to it whan the sunlight bounces of it… “thats if it is gold of course” 😀 gee,, should i have said that last passage? 😉

    also i notice the kerning on that number has been opened up a bit… looks spot on also.. that little bit extra space will make a hell of a differnce from a distance.. 😉

    thanks for keeping us updated mate 😛

    Rob – I never used the PC600 on this at all – it was all done using Oracal 751. I used the gold coloured vinyl, along with black/grey and white to achive the bevelled look.

    You’re right about the telephone number – I increased the kerning only this morning after reading your comments about the G Sommerville van. 😀

    Great work Phill, have you changed the colours at all because in the picture it looks like a blue and gold on the logo ?

    It’s purple Martin (oracal 40) – although I agree it looks blue in the photograph 😀

    Just helps to reinforce the point I was making in the other post about the taking of photographs Phill, I knew from an earlier post that it was a purple colour and couldnt see why they would have changed it so soon after you redoing some of there signs, but how ever hard I looked at the photo I couldnt get it to look purple!
