A new client called and explained that he had eight new semi trucks arriving at their facility during the next few weeks. He said he would receive four sleeper cabs and four day cabs and would need them lettered on site at their facility.
That afternoon I drove over to their truck lot to get some measurements and to color match the vinyl that was previously being used. A few days later I received a call from my client telling me that he had a new sleeper cab on site and was ready to have it lettered.
