Professional USDOT Number Lettering vs Do It Yourself Truck Lettering | Custom USDOT Number Lettering Decals
In the picture example below you’ll see the difference between professional USDOT lettering vs doing it yourself lettering.
In the before image, this trucker wrote his crucial USDOT information on his truck using a permanent marker. We understand hand paint lettering but this is not it. Not only is this individuals calligraphy horrible, but it looks very unprofessional. Not to mention that he wrote his company name wrong incorrectly. Would you want to do business with a company that is this unprofessional? Of course not!
On the right side (after) image, you can see how professional it looks. The truckers USDOT, MC & GVW numbers are evenly spaced and his business name looks professional and spelled correctly. Aesthetics and first impressions matter. Don’t let a few dollars ruin your image and potentially miss out on potential customers. It is said that a moving truck in traffic can generate up to 700 impressions per hour!
In short, do it yourself lettering is possible, but most likely it will look bad and hurt your business.
