    i got these signs done for $40 a piece. It may have been a little high but it was right around the block from my house. What does everyone think about the price and finished product?

    i not trying to be a troll, but i hate magnets. that's all i used to use till i found that stickers are much better. you will always have water behind them and on your older trucks you'll have rust problems behind them. also if you leave them on too long they can stick to your truck, and i almost forgot they blow off and people steale them because they think it funny. as far as how they look on your truck? i think they look nice!

    I tihnk what he ment was... "Im better than you!!" I love this site........
    As long as you take the signs off and let them dry out they are fine. If you leave them on and they stick , well then I guess you will have stickers and you can also be better than us. LOL:nod:

    I think they look nice and the price was real good but I have to agree with Jay. Magnetic signs aren't very professional IMO.

    There is a guy on craiglist in Mass under auto parts or general that is making them for 60 a pair. He also makes big ones for the tailgate for 40. Just do a search for magnetic under those 2 categories.

    well it is my personal truck so I will keep up on the maintenance and I didn't want to go crazy and letter the truck all up. I wanted to see if the price was reasonable, maybe a little high but convenient and close

    The signs look good and the price is comparable to what I paid for several setrs here in PA. After a while they got to more of a pain then they were worth so I got the truck lettered,. After using both, I prefer the lettering myself on a work vehicle.

    Same size I have. A friend of mine just started a company called D&C Customs here in MN. They do all the stickers and magnetic logos. He can also do colored logos instead of just the white background. Cheap too. sorry if that was too much of a plug for him, I didnt give a link though soo...

    I like being able to remove my logo and then use my truck as a normal vehicle. Dont have to worry about pissing someone off and now they have your company name and phone number in many cases

    Those do look nice - a lot better and more professional appearing than the magnetics I've seen. If the guy who did them is local, that's worth an increase in price even if the quality was the same: keeps the money local, and is best for your local economy. :D

    these are the 18x24 magnets I purchased. Any colors you want at no extra cost. The 18" wide part was about an inch too wide(down the door) for my 1993 f series truck. Cost was around 80 for both. I know 12/24's are a lot cheaper.
