    Hey guys!!

    I am looking to adding my company logo and info on my front doors and tailgate. I wanted to see if anybody here would be able to help me with some ideas. I would assume this is where sockmonkey will shine. :)

    I am willing to pay for the design that I choose to use on my truck. I am able to pay $50 or hook you up with a free headlight hid kit! Below is my logo and some ideas that I have seen searchin and kinda like.

    Is that how big you want it? Like pretty much the whold tailgate and/or door(s)?

    And maybe a stupid question, but what color is your truck?

    Sorry I have a white truck...

    For the tailgate yes I want to use up all of it most likely... As for the doors either just the door alone or both door and access cab door. I don't think I would want to do the sides of the bed. Let me see if I have a pic of my truck...

    Cool.

    What about maybe the diamond part on the Access door and the text (maybe scaled up in size) on the (regular?) door?

    Maybe similar for the tail gate.

    I was kinda thinking the tail gate was wide and the logo itself looks taller than wide, so if it was broken up, maybe it would fill out the tail better.

    But also, if you break it up, it might not really be your logo any more huh. :confused:

    Example of that:

    Friendship and Friend :wave: Ship. (insert ship) :eek:

    You know what I mean? lol

    And also I'd be glad to help any way I could as well.

    But I don't have photoshot. Maybe I can make up for that with a creative mind. lol

    Lol I like your little example of friendship. I would be willing to do the tail gate logo seperate from the text. Might make more sense to be able to blow up the diamond big and have the text next to it. As for the door one I would rather it be together so that way somewhere on the truck it shows my actual logo that I have on my business cards etc. :)

    I like these ideas a lot! I would think maybe a touch smaller on the diamond though. I would also like to have my # on the sides and the tailgate. On the tailgate along with the # i would have my website address and maybe some stuff like *repairs *installation *salt systems *service. Just a rough idea of some stuff that I do.

    Oh also yea if socalman22 can let me know if he has a guy that could do the vinyl job for me that would be awesome! Maybe he can work a good deal for me. Socalman22 hit me up brotha! :)

    That is a killer idea!! I like where this is going! :D Maybe just have water on the tailgate so the whole side doesn't have to be section vinyl wrapped? Trying to picture if it would be possible to do the whole bottom side like that but not cost an arm and a leg lol.

    It's my friend. I hooked up Socalman22 with the stickers. He is in Santee and does some really good work. Hit me up and i'll give you his info. He's a good friend of mine and will get you a good price and a good design or if you just want your design on your truck he can do that too. Just trying to help out a local friend.
