Signwritting Vans

Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 9 December 2003
I have just got a new van and wanted to have it signwritten. I have spoken to someone today who said that the design can be put together on their computer and then supplied to me in sheets to put on myself with it all spaced out and everything. Smiley Has anyone else done this and does it look professional Huh

Hi John,
           In the end i bought an Escort Diesel van because of the height with ladders. I was looking for an astra or escort but could not believe how hard it is to find a tidy second hand van but i got one in the end Smiley

Hi Steve
I have the Fed logo , a Yellow Pages sticker and my phone no , I dont want to spend much on it as I am looking to get something a bit better in the new year Something with opening back doors and not a lift up job  , I quite fancy a Partner or Berlingo but it would have to be nearly new , hopefully before the end of the tax year Cool

Hi Steve,
I've had 2 escort vans, 1.8 diesels, the mark 4 done about 50 to the gallon my current mk6 does about 60 miles to the gallon, even with some ragging around I have yet to find anything anywhere near as good fuel, is it the same on ur's.
I find these perfect, only trouble bloody slow, unless you get the 75 d.turbo.

Best to see what graphics system they use on their computer, then you can supply the logo etc, and they can copy straight from this. When you do your business cards, letterheads you have the template.
