I am actually very annoyed Bill as someone has just pointed out on another forum it is spelt wrong! Furniture has an extra 't' in it! I supplied them with a photo of the sign I wanted making and it WAS spelt correctly. I have just sent them an e-mail. Bah!

I have to agree with Tommy - I would have it re-made correctly. IMHO, there's nothing worse than mis-spelling on signs etc that other people read. Having typos etc in postings and emails is OK I think, as most of us are not professional typists, and everyone usually understands what you mean anyway .
 
The van looks good, and you should be able to get some pretty big commissions inside.

We know your work is of the highest quality Mailee but a member of the public reading this could come to the wrong conclusion.
 
Throw it back at them.

Thanks guys. Yes I agree it would have been nice a little larger but it was the largest they did in a magnetic one. Good news is they replied to me and said they will send a new set out ASAP. Luckily I haven't been out on any jobs since as I have been working on the wardrobes in the shop.

Takes me back to when I was self employed, and picked up my van with sign writing on it. It got me a lot of work, in fact one of my customers nearly crashed when she first saw my van as she was trying to write down my number whilst following me, lol.
 
Just remember that sign writing on your van is as close to free advertising as you will ever get.

Alan, maybe I'm teaching my granny to suck eggs but are you aware that removeable signwriting doesn't have to be magnetic? A lot of signwritten or liveried vehicles have removeable sheets of printed plastic. Police cars, taxis, delivery vans etc. have these so that when the vehicle is disposed of you just peel the decor off and you have the original colour - no re-spray required.

Yes Richard I was aware of that. The reason for the magnetic signs was it will enable me to remove them when I have to take my rubbish to the local tip as they won't allow commercial waste tipping there.

Who's a crafty boy then?

Take care, vans, especially white are always viewed with suspicion and if you visit often they will soon cotton on. Several jobbing builders have been caught at our local re-cycling centre and fined. One fine I recall was £2500!

Are you sure about two Ts my chambers dictionary only spells it with one, and I looked in yellow pages and all Furniture stores and removal vans had only one T Put the two you have on the back doors , people have more time to read following than passing, nice van for your excellent work creates a good impression.

Mailee!
A sign the size of a glazing panel of the side on the sliding door, (so it is not hiden when the door is open).
One at least on the back. Slightly bigger writing. It has to be readable at speed.
The quality of your work displayed on this site, tells me it is time to stop hiding your light under a bushell. Make them re -do to the job to correct spelling mistake.
Joe.

Whoop's I misread the post refering to the letter Ts , the sign writers had spelt it with 2 Ts not that it should have 2Ts, in the word, a senior moment, the trouble is they get closer together and last longer, ,

Don't worry about it George, I nearly made the same mistake myself.
"a senior moment" I'm not far behind you.
