If you would be kind enough to comment in the comment box BELOW THE BLOG and share we will appreciate!
Keep in mind that while keeping a simple design these are created in a sign program called Flexi- sign and this allows to be able to cut out vinyl graphics or Paint mask to use for a stencil in the automotive paint process
Once we choose a final then we can convert in Corel- draw or Photo Shop to create a JPEG or a tiff for print materials
OK we will update you on the final when you vote please use the number 1-5 🙂

Palm Beach Customs business Lettering in Fort Myers Fl offers a different approach to your Vehicle Branding .
Coming from the custom automotive painting field we can go as simple as a 3 color Vinyl Logo and business message to very High Quality automotive paint finish . Lets say you have a new PeterBuilt or a Mack truck that you want really look nice and you want to stand out from your competition we can go all out and design your logos and apply with paint and once completed it can be coated with automotive clear this procedure is generally a little more expensive but certain Jobs warrant this approach .
The Palm Beach Work truck is done very simply to give the customer an Idea of simple is good and with basic colors by adding some different foils in this case chrome Diamond Plate you can really stand out & read the Truck from 100-200 ft ( very important ) so many Jobs you will see you can’t read whats going on .
Keep in mind that we can take a picture of your truck trailer of car and do a mock up of what it will look like so you will get a first hand Idea before you start your project this way you can see the colors and make changes with our graphic design team.We will also show you some Vehicle wrap examples on the next post so be sure to visit our site map and check out our other work .
This is a pretty cool story this Project meant a lot to me.
Ron had owned this truck for over 30 years and had decided that It was time for a complete restoration. So he discussed with his Dog Tundra (and not after Toyota) you might think In crazy telling you this but I grew up on a large chicken farm and we always had dogs. So I understood There was only one problem Ron and Tundra had to come to an agreement that if truck was getting a re-do
They were a part of our life like many of us and Ron was no exception his dog was a Big golden Retriever and rode in the back of the truck with Dad .If you grew up in our local community and you didn't know Ron you were a foreigner ( just Joking ) But everyone knew Ron and was happy to talk to him I always said when I retire I pray that I'm as easy going and happy !
Ron - He just had a cool way about him and was always sporting a larger than life smile.
You will notice I did this post - Ron Noka's " Nite Hawk " Chevy Truck Restoration - Bedliner - Graphics from finish to start it’s just nicer when you can see the finished result in the beginning!
You will see here we are wet- sanding and buffing the final finish after a Black Sapphire metallic paint Job with 2 gallons of clear coat.
What we do on a project as massive as a big k series Chevy truck is cut and buff first then assemble and then back tape the moldings for a final glaze so we don’t get the compound in the moldings once we are all finished with assembly it's easy clean up at that point.
No skimping on this project
We installed a brand new dash, new seat all new door rubbers rocker moldings and visors when you stepped inside this baby it was like brand new.
You will see below some very detailed pin-stripping on the side we included the Indian Feathers and on the tailgate the spear.
Ron was a Proud Narragansett Indian and I was friends with a lot of the local Tribe.
This gives you a side shot of the Body work straight as an arrow truck really came out nice I was fortunate to have 3 of my favorite - Team players on this Job Harry , Jason , and Slink - You are as good as your team in the real world and we all has our hands in this Job 🙂
Below you will see this full restoration project we even installed our Famous spray on bed-Liner Ron fell in love with the bed liner I think he liked it because his partner in crime didn't slip around as much. Also, you can see we went over the rails so he had full protection on his bed rails.
Below you will see the bed from the truck in prep stage.
I had to get a new floor and 2 new quarter panels we replaced all the sheet metal on the truck new doors, fenders, inner fenders ( you see them in the bed picture, rocker panels, quarter panels and rear bumper the only sheet metal that was original was the tail gate and the hood .. we gave the truck a full undercoating before the final coats of paint .
2 new quarters and bed floor Hanging the doors after the rockers were welded
Jay and Harry fitting the doors
This shot is to give you a clear picture of how a new bedside comes
complete with the inner and outer panel it is bolted and welded then seam Sealed before paint.
This is a clear shot of how clean Over the rail Looks for a Spray-on Bedliner.
The LAST picture has Nite Hawk in the tailgate and Ron's Spear very cool - Proud Narragansett Indian.

In this post I’m just going over some the questions and ideas that you need to keep in mind for truck lettering, signs, and graphics.
One of the important things that you need to think about is your target market – who you’re speaking to. For example, if you’re selling Harley Davidson’s you’re going to be talking to the biker crowd so you’re image and graphics can be a little bit edgy. If you have a home care business, you’ll want something soft and inviting so that your target customers feel safe with your services.
You’ll also want to keep in mind that many times, less is more – how many times have you seen a truck or van that went by that looked beautiful with colors and design, but you asked yourself, Who was that? because you miss their name and/or message?
You want to be careful that you don’t look like a newspaper print.
The next thing that I would like to point out is that you want to keep in mind is your branding image and how you’re going to portray yourself on your website, your social media outlets, and your business cards. It is important to keep a clean and consistent message.
Something cool to do is to create a tagline that people will remember -examples below.
BMW “The Ultimate Driving Machine”
Palm Beach Customs Tag line is “Building Dream Rides Since 1980"
Apple's Tagline "Think Different "
Keep in mind that colors play an important role in the psychology of consumers. You will see some different pictures of a few fleet lettering jobs that we have done for our fleet customers. Many of these are just truck lettering, signs, and designs that we did for local businesses in the Cape Coral-Fort Myers area, including the 50 mile radius around SWFL.
So keep us in mind for your next project whether it is truck lettering, business signs, or vehicle graphics because we will get you ahead of your competition.

Commercial fleet truck lettering packages and custom car graphics for nearly two decades.
Palm Beach Customs is no stranger to truck and car graphics. We have been providing top quality commercial fleet truck lettering packages and custom car graphics for nearly two decades.
Many of our customers realize that in today’s economy a business must take advantage of all the ways to market their business and get in front of their potential clients and to brand their company for the success they are looking for. Some clients use their personal vehicles and/or a few company cars while other clients have a large fleet of vehicles at their disposal. Here at Palm Beach Customs, we can provide both of these types of clients with the business advertising they need with truck and car graphics.
Below is a local company, Cape Coral Plumbing, that we installed a spray on bedliner inside their utility body and up and over the tool boxes. Along with a commercial fleet lettering package, we did a complete logo design installation on their brand new F-450 work-truck. The choice of colors on the white body was very simple blue for the plumbing and red for the heating.
Once again we Sprayed a Heavy duty Sprayon Bedliner for the cape coral plumbing truck .
Another example of another very big client that has a large fleet of trucks is Fagan Door Company located in Rhode Island. The fleet of trucks they operate are two colors – dark green metallic and jet black. Their logo is a 4 leaf clover where we used 22 karat ¼ inch engine turn gold leaf with a green outline. The design is easy to read and very clean you will notice both clients put their web domain names on the trucks. As a matter of fact, Fagan chooses to only put their domain names without phone numbers (www.fagandoor.com).
Not only are we limited to truck and car graphics, but we also do boat, trailer, and business sign graphics/ lettering.
If you have a truck, car or enclosed trailer we can help you get your message out and increase your sales to your local market with the graphics you need. We serve SWFL: Lee County Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and all surrounding areas. Feel free to contact us and we will set up a time to discuss your project!

Pristine example of car graphics & logo design applied with custom paint
This is a pristine example of car graphics & logo design applied with custom paint for a complete color branding of a company and the image they want to portray to the public. There is no vinyl application in this particular piece – it is completely done with automotive finishes and paint masks. We hand taped and airbrushed the vehicle and logo that you see.
This is unlike a vehicle wrap, which is essentially a full sticker on the vehicle. Vehicle wraps often have a lot going on in the space and comes off as cluttered and difficult to understand what the main point is. While this works for some, the finished product of a vehicle is not as classy as what was done with this truck for Prestige; it does not require the same amount of skill, application time, or design and this is reflected in the end result.
You can think of the popular soda brands, Coke and Pepsi to illustrate a great logo and sign design scheme. They are both clean logos with only a few colors and easy to read fonts. The work done with the Prestige truck can be equated to the Coke and Pepsi labeling scheme: it’s clean, simple, and easy to spot with the white and blue two-tone body paint and easy to ready logo.
Along with the custom car graphics and paint, Prestige also decided to go with the Reflex spray-on bedliner that Palm Beach Customs provides to the SWFL area. The bedliner completes the clean look of this vehicle and it will never fade in the sun due to UV protection characteristics, flake from dry rot, or fail you when loading heavy equipment.
When you see a job done like Prestige’s truck, it just says quality of that business at Palm Beach Customs we want our car graphics to do just that for our clients.
Here you see the final out come of car graphic ,logo design and custom paint that is simple clean and very easy to read .

Sign design for local business Gentle Care in Fort Myers, FL
Here at Palm Beach Customs we specialize in many automotive fields, but we also specialize in helping your business attract more clients! Did you know that a company’s sign design and logo is the greatest influence on customer decisions to either choose you or your competitor? We create high-quality, eye-grabbing business sign designs for your company that drives more traffic to your business.
An example of our sign design capabilities can be seen in our work with a local business, Gentle Care of Fort Myers, FL.
We sit down in a meeting with the customer to decide what they want to say, the important points of their business, and then coming up with a couple sign board design concepts. We take into consideration the shape/layout of the building, the color, and position to the street(s). Once the client is happy with a board design, we move on to deciding the font style and layout.
When picking a logo font style and layout, we really have to make sure we pick the right one to attract the most customers for our client’s business. Something too fine can’t be read and something too thick is off-putting. Also, we have to make sure that the logo is going to work for the next couple of years and that the client won’t want a redesign in a few months! When picking out fonts and layouts for sign designs, Palm Beach Customs makes sure that your new look will be effective and lasting.
Color and style is also very important to take into consideration and the balance can be difficult to find no matter your budget – but we don’t have any trouble with that! After considering many color schemes and taking into account the clients budget, Gentle Care decided to go with a 3-color scheme of red, yellow, and black.
Gold (real) leaf scrolls are not necessary, but they certainly add a little something – elegance, eye-catching, yet subtle. Scrolls come in many different designs so make sure to inquire about them when you’re doing your sign design!
The size of a sign is another aspect to consider when creating a sign design concept and depends on local zoning ordinances maximum size permitted and placement so it looks uniformed. Usually I will work on a design then tweak and fit the measurements In some cases this will produce a nicer result .

Gold Leaf Lettering for your business is elegant or is bold all depends on the fonts you pick. Think about the fire trucks. They are typically lettered in Gold Leaf engine Turn with a black shadow on the typical Fire Engine Red. They say less is more and I’m a true believer that some of the Truck and auto lettering you see is so busy when they go by you have to ask yourself what the heck was that ? Didn’t get the name because there was so much going on it making it too busy. Think about that for a moment. Now look at Coca Cola ‘s logo, simple one color and you never miss it. The coke truck doesn’t drive by and your like what was that, the Pepsi logo? And for that fact same with Pepsi there, logo is neat and clean. That’s my point here.
Take a look at a job or two that I did with simple Gold Leaf Lettering
That Logo and gold leaf lettering is clean and readable and that’s what you want with your company trucks when your sporting around town. People are bombarded with so much information it is your job as a business owner to make it easy on them to read, then they will remember you.
Here is a different customer. I did there entire fleet. They are called Fagan Door and they had Dark Green Metallic Trucks so we used a black drop shadow and the 1/4 inch Engine Turn Gold Leaf Lettering for there fleet and we never put a phone number on the trucks, just the website.
Ok here is the last example for your review and if you think this might work for your business we are serving Swfl area so feel free to contact us for a quote and any questions you might have.
Gold Leaf Lettering is clean and as you can see with the three different fonts used on each project, the logo designs for each truck lettering job takes on its own style.
Call us or sign up online and see how Gold Leaf Lettering can make your vehicle stand out.
