Trucks are fun to own. Every self-conscious truck owner wants a truck that is a bit different from all the rest.
The easiest way to get this uniqueness is to do a lettering and custom graphics job. According to your line of work, your character, and your truck.
Here is how a Peterbilt owner added uniqueness to this truck. That is eye-catching and unobtrusive at the same time. The owner wanted to have their business name appear on the doors, and asked for something extra on the side panels to spice up the look.
For this lettering and custom graphics job, we went with a metallic-tiled foil and used two extra foils, deep blue and light red. Since this Peterbilt was deep red, with smart techniques, we ended up getting four layers of custom graphics and lettering. That really looks great.
We started by thoroughly cleaning and polishing all the lettering surfaces. We have to be sure no dirt or grease would interfere with the quality of the adhesion of the foils. We always do this step to ensure a long-lasting lettering warranty. With the high-quality foils we use, and our detailed work, this Peterbilt custom graphics, and lettering got a 10-year warranty of labor and materials.For the door panels, we created deep, 4-layer lettering. That made the metal-tiled foil stand out even more.
For the side panels, we went with a zig-zagged, almost biker-style custom graphics. Using three colors plus the truck-based paint, we create a vivid detail adorning the Peterbilt sign, without being too flashy. These were detailed airbrush graphics for the truck, so we’d get an illusion of a 3D graphics truck adornment. This Peterbilt got the identical graphics detail on both sides.
For the door panels, we went with a detailed lettering job but with an unobtrusive design. We first applied the light red foil that had cut-ins, to create a very cool negative film graphics effect of the darker red truck finish and create extra detail. Then, we moved up one layer and used a dark blue color to create extra depth for the final, metallic-tiled foil.Before lettering, we gave this Peterbilt a thorough cleanup and polish of the lettering surfaces to ensure a 10-year warranty on materials and labor.
This layered approach worked out wonderfully, and the client was extremely happy with this unique custom graphics and lettering of the Peterbilt truck. Both the lettering and airbrush graphics have plenty of depth and detail. They create a memorable appearance of this truck wherever it goes.

After you finished my truck I just wanted to let you know I’m very happy. Thanks for everything.
