New brush lettering on my truck
« on: July 14, 2014, 10:23:18 PM »
I figured if I'm going to try to 'push' hand-lettered signs, I should have some on my own truck! All I've done is the 2 doors, for now. I'll add some other stuff later. All paint (One Shot with a bit of hardener)

Thanks, all! In hindsight, I wish I'd have made the loop on the 'e' smaller. I need to get in the habit of leaving my drawing/pattern on the wall for a few more days before committing to paint! Not so sure the cap 'G' slant either. :S

As long as you're all still in 'sign-painter mode', do you see any problem with using my other favorite sign painting letter style, a 'casual', for a short list of the services my shop offers I'd list on the side of the truck? I've attached pics of samples of my brush 'casual',  both upright and italic, on some scraps.

I think traditionally, it might have been frowned on, but OTOH, I'd kind of like to show my strongest brush lettering styles on my truck-----my biggest advertisment. Otherwise, maybe I'll use a Roman or sans serif style for my list of services. Thanks for any input!

I think it's great - very modern. It's a good advertisement for yourself.

It's great! As for your casual hand - why not? But I suggest using the style you like the best and use most often, so people can associate you with that style - people are visual, they may likely say 'hey I like that lettering on your truck, can you do that for me?'
