    Here are some pics of what seems to be a recent "Trend" in Ottawa. Vinyl wraps on trucks! I think its cool:cool: advertisement, but what do you think about the cost of it?

    For an F-350 extended cab dually $ 850 for the artwork, then $ 3,200 to $ 3,400 per truck!!!

    What do you guys think about this? Is it worth it? Opinions please!:waving:

    one thing is for sure it looks sharp! Im sure it would pay for itself rather fast though.

    I think it looks awesome , way cheaper than big yellow page ad.
    How do you keep it looking good? It has a life of 3-4 yrs.

    There must be a wax or something to keep it from fading?

    I'll be the odd one. I don't like it.

    I think it looks to "busy", sure it gets attention but do you get what it says as it goes past you? I think your normal window or door lettering is much more effective and much cheaper.

    Im with ya Mark.

    Wraps CAN look good but I like cars/trucks too much to make them look like a circus.

    i agree

    way to busy to notice what the name and number of the company even was

    i agree with you too, theres way too much going on there, it was hard for me to see what the name was and such and that was just sitting there looking at a pic not even driving by... also seems to be a waste of money, id rather get lettering done on a truck with a logo and have it be simple and look 'cleaner' and easier for customers to recognize and read. . . the only thing i like vinyl wraps on is snowmobiles, theres a company that does a lot of the sno x'ers sleds and they look hot( blair morgans honeycomb wrap, mike islands bud light wrap)

    I think they look pretty busy too. But I do have to say Muir's Landscaping's look sweet. I would have to say those are the only ones I do like a lot.

    I like them best on trailers........I've seen some really good wraps on trucks. But IMO, those are WAY to busy.

    Since I can't edit my first post, the prebbel f150 doesn't look half bad, the landscaping ones are the ones I don't like.

    i for one like it!

    it's not necessarily "reading" the advertisement that a customer need's to do, most of the time it is name reorganization or in this case logo familiarity.

    It would be cheaper to hire some hot blonde to ride around topless in your truck. Now that will get you some attention.:D
