Default Let me introduce Big Stickers and Signs

So some of you may know me by now from being around here and sponsoring with different companies. Well I have finally pulled the trigger and started my own company. I personally am a 3m Preferred vinyl installer and have been dealing with vehicle wraps and graphics for over 10 years. I have partnered up with someone that has extensive knowledge in the sign industry. Hence Big Stickers and Signs.

We have a lot of capabilities to help in multiple industries. In house we have 64" wide format printer, 5'x10' CNC Plasma table, 4'x8' CNC router table, and 40"x36" CNC laser.

Let me know if you have any questions on vehicle wraps, decals, banners or signs. Honestly even if you need some custom cut parts for the car I will help.

I will be making a new Thread showing recent projects and videos but here are a few examples.

Please take a look at our Facebook and website.

https://www.facebook.com/bigstickers

Home (Just got it up and running so it isn't complete. It does have broken pages but it gives you an idea of the finished product.)

Not joking I have done probably about 100 bass boat wraps. I used to wrap a lot of the pro/semi-pro boats. I have one on the schedule for my new company.

Rough estimate? 18ft Ranger. No idea on graphic was just looking for white bottom with maybe red stripes on the side or your business logo if you'd like me to advertise I think you did my buddy's Chicago Wolves boat when you were at a previous employer.

Siiick! Congrats man.

I had you cut some vinyl for me last year for a boat name. I think I need to do it big this year and have a big graphic designed for the transom

DJ did great work cleaning up our company logo and making new signs for the front doors here... Looks a TON better when people come to visit. Couldn't be happier.

Now I'm just trying to convince the owner she needs to wrap the box truck since we drive it every day it's like a damn rolling billboard.

Looking at $1300. If you do a wrap you have to take advantage of the capabilities of design and print.

Most people don't realize that mobile advertising is the best and cheapest view to dollar rate of marketing. I actually bought some parts for our laser at the place right next door to you. I realize why you needed those parking signs.

It's crazy isnt it?

We're given a certain amount of spaces per the lease but everyone tries to park in the front areas instead of using the back parking lots like theyll get cooties if they have to walk through their warehouse space or something.

Congrats man! I wish I could afford a wrap for a car, I would totally do it. You should tint windows on the side, goes hand in hand with wrapping, wouldn't it?

Thanks for all the encouraging words. It's a lot of hard work but I love what I do. I was thinking maybe having a TCG meet up or BBQ in the next few months.

Hey DJ, out of curiosity, how much would you say an average price is to wrap a box truck? Ours is an 8 skid truck so not too large, just curious if I could "sell" it to the owner one of these days....

Yes we built the table in house. No need to spend money on something we can do ourselves. The laser can cut through some metals.

PM me a picture so I can get a general size. I can then give you a more accurate quote.

Assuming it's a 14' box that is 7 1/2 tall you would be looking at $2100 to cover the two sides and back.

I'll get true measurements one of these days for you and see if I can't talk her into it.

Youd think it would be the easiest sell ever ?!?!
