    Noticed one really successful landscape and snow removal company has all there plows lettered. Including giant plows on front end loaders just sitting in parking lots. Anyways i got many calls from my yard signs this year mowing lawns. So i picked up a plow for personal driveway. I would probably only be at local gas station with plow on a dozen times. But whatever. I was gonna go to the local vinyl/sign business and have them sticker it up. (Just for name recognition). Any tips? Like maybe paints better? Huge thanks, great site. Did not notice an advertising section.

    If the plow is for personal drive why letter it up?

    If you’re opening a snow removal business or adding it to your existing services then we have a different situation
    .

    Vinyl lettering might last longer if you coat the area with clear coat after its lettered .
    Same as if you have it done with paint ,
    Paint does last longer.

    Always a great idea to advertise on any large equipment you have. It’s the cheapest marketing you can find. I do not know what kind of lettering to use. I’ll follow your post.

    My truck is not lettered. I am gonna try to only plow my driveway. Though i have gotton asked about plowing 1/2 dozen times. It's got me thinking . My landscape trailer has professional advertising on it. Uniforms with lettering. Talked with the graphics place today. Unaware to me he actually has a plowing business too. Lol. I could tell he was trying to deter me from doing it. Anyways i told him i was not trying to take over the plowing industry. Gonna meet back with some measurements. I was thinking 5ft by 16 inches. Off center. I would show my logo but i might have a few gang stalkers.lol. any advice would be great. Let it snow. Thanks.

    Wanna get noticed? Paint all your equipment a color that stands out. We all know red is the greatest color ever...
    However, there’s a company here that has everything pink (for breast cancer awareness)
    Pink plows, pink pushers, pink salt, pink eyes, you get the point..

    I am excited. It's gonna be 5'-16" for around 150 installed. I will take pictures of the lettered up plow and use them for advertising my lawn company for now. ((Pink)) I feel like organizations and companies that do that kinda thing are praying on people. I kinda lose respect for companys when they do cheezy stuff. Sell outs. Just my opinion. I do not wanna wrinkle any feathers. Its fine if ya want take part in that though.
