Just finished with a new paint job. The frame was black with white panels. I plan to replace the SW signs with my own art.

My comments are geared towards more then jason here, but why do guys seem its nessaccary to put a paint brand on there trucks or trailers??? Are these HUGE companies giving you such a great deal you feel you need to give them free advertising?

Most clients will use what ever paint you tell that you the painter "recommends", these big paint co's SW, BM, PPG and many more have a gazillions to spend on advertizing we shouldn't have to do it for them and for what?? a couple of shirts, maybe a 1$ or 2$ more off a gallon when they probably could do that even w/o us putting there name on the side of our rigs...

Not sure about the reasons why ... unless a person is getting paid by the company to run the Ads. Some major companies pay a good bit to have others place a magnetic or other type sign on a vehicle. For example a company that my son-in-law represents pays him over $400.00 to use their signage on his truck.

I guess if I were going to have signs that display one company product over another I would see who wanted to pay for the publicity:yes:

For me it wasn't about the paint brand more than it was about a good price for the sign and being that SW made it, they just about give them away for free because of their name on it. $5 ea.

Sure they give it away its free advertising for them. I would give my signs away for free if someone was to drive around with them on it too.
