    I'm getting a van in the next few weeks and want my logo, telephone number ect. on the van. I've never had this done before. Can anyone recommend somewhere in the Teesside area, and give me a rough idea on prices. Thanks

    Find somewhere who can make up what you want in vinyl and then fit it yourself
    Very easy to do
    If not sure youtube it and it will make sense
    You only need a spray bottle of soapy water a plastic spreader like you use for body filler and a stanley knife

  3. I used ttgrafix to print my vinyl off. I found him very easy to use, he was happy to make lots of changes, he was inexpensive and when the vinyl arrived, it was bang on.

    When i get my van i will use the local shop in the village next door
    I like to spend locally if possible and they do a good deal to try and compete with these online companies
    They make their biggest profits from fitting but i will do that myself

    I use magnetic signs, because I can't bring myself to deface my beloved T4 :hiding:

    I've found using magnetic signs they will eventually damage the panel paintwork behind them.

    I think Some get there van done and you can't actually tell what service they are offering - keep it simple and clear is my advice
