Car/Truck Vinyl



My husband had previously bought some vinyl lettering for his work truck a number of years ago (before we had the cricut). Unfortunately, our truck was the recipient of some vandalism about two years ago and he had to get the truck repainted...there went the vinyl. It cost him like $50 to get it on the two sides of the truck.

Well, we decided it was time to put the lettering back on. So, we headed over to Roberts with our 50% off coupons and got the color vinyl we needed. So we spent $5 on vinyl and only used just over half of it for the lettering on two sides and the back...more than he got last time for $50. Then he decided he wanted to display ads with discounts occasionally on the truck too, so he went to a sign store and bought a large sheet of magnet, which was (I thought) a little too expensive. He got 2 ft by 1 ft for $20. So we made two magnets to go on his truck too. We both like how it turned out and saved quite a bit by doing it ourselves! Hooray!!!
