    I was trying to find something nice for my car shop wrap, I decide this....
    still the roof is not done, my laminator is death...
    I don't laminate the winodws, and use frog-juice...I've a real solvent printer...good idea ?
    let me know your opinion....
    still learning....

    little less of the kid and a little more with the copy might have been a better idea. it seems like the copy is crammed in most places.

    i dont get what a kid doing karate has to do with signs or vehicle wraps. also where the bumper meets the fender looks to be two totally different shades of green. Other than that it looks fine.

    How about a kid holding a sign? Or a kid with a "lemonade stand" but for signs?

    is this to promote wraps or your sign shop? yes, a picture of sign rather than the kid would have been a better idea as it looks more like "mom's brag book" than a sign shop vehicle.

    Seems to be the conundrum.
    Most occupations have a visual you can use but in our case the medium truly IS the message.

    Plumber - pipewrech
    Carpenter - Hammer
    Sign biz- ????

    You know that GRAPHIX is still spelled wrong, don't you? Sorry man, it's just one of my pet peeves in this business. The whole trendy X thing died out years ago.

    You just noticed the misspelling now? Jumped out at me right away, as did the not so green bumper where it meets the fender.

    when you redo it to spell your company name correctly, why not advertise lost kids like on the milk cartons? It will look the same but might actually do some good!

    the reason I asked that is are you promoting wraps or your entire sign business? it isn't that they are separate. if you are promoting wraps, your wrap should something that makes people want to drive to your shop and have it done today as they feel it will promote their business in the best way or for a personla vehicle, they just want to look as great as you do. if you are promoting your sign business in general, having a rolling billboard would be a good idea. either way, the kicking kid and the crampred copy just aren't doing it.
