Vehicle Signage

CDA Food Delivery 2012 Ford Focus

by andy on July 21, 2012


Today we had the great honor of installing decals on the second CDA Food Delivery vehicle. This vehicle is a 2012 Ford Focus in a beautiful blue. This is a great example of attention grabbing vehicle signage without the cost of a full vehicle wrap.

We really enjoy working with CDA Food Delivery. Matt and Tyler are great guys.

“Save gas, save time, let us stand in line!”. That is the slogan for our Coeur d’Alene food delivery specialists, CDA Food Delivery. CDA Food Delivery came to us last week looking for signs for their vehicles. We were excited to take on the job since CDA Sign loves vehicle graphics.

During a visit with Matt, the owner of CDA Food Delivery, we took pictures of his very nice, but very stock Ford Fusion. The goal was to make this car as noticeable as possible. We laid out what we believed to be a very killer design on his car in Photoshop. We scheduled the installation for the next Saturday.

For this particular job, we decided to use high performance cut vinyl. High performance cut vinyl is very low profile. A printed vinyl design would have also looked amazing, however, printed vinyl doubles the thickness since we have to laminate it for outdoor use.

We began with the large, “DELIVERY” gray pieces and later inset the logos on each side. Cut, high performance vinyl is not forgiving if you mess up, so this was very slow, very tedious work. After the sides were complete, we installed the hood logo, coming out of the driver side headlight, and designed the “CDA FOOD DELIVERY” piece going vertical along the left hood line. Lastly, we laid out the requested phrases and contact information along the bumper, and added a small logo on the trunk.

This job turned out great. We are thankful for the relationship that we have built with CDA Food Delivery, and hope that it is a long term one. If you need food delivered to your door, be sure to give them a call!

Rush Delivery Car Vinyl Graphics

Failed signs from the last sign company. CDA Sign got the job to create new, better quality signs.

One day on our way to get lunch at Paul Bunyan’s in Hayden, Idaho, we passed one of the Rush Delivery cars. We happened to notice that their vinyl signs were falling off. After contacting them, and suggesting that we could replace their vinyl signs with better vinyl signs, we got the job.

Jon, the owner of Rush Delivery, LLC came by our vinyl sign shop in Coeur d’Alene so that we could survey the job to be done. After looking at the old vinyl graphics, it appeared that maybe a poor quality vinyl had been used. The adhesive stayed on the car, but vinyl was separated. The previous signs had been layered, red vinyl on white vinyl, to get the desired look. Since CDA Sign can print on vinyl as well as cut vinyl, we decided that the future signs would all be printed and cut to get the desired look, rather than have vinyl stacked on top of each other.

Old signs removed, and the car washed!

We scheduled the installation for the following weekend, right after the Coeur d’com installation. Being on the road day after day throughout the whole northwest, the car had a quite a bit of dust when it arrived. We quickly removed the old signage using mild solvents, and then gave the car, a Honda Fit, a good washing.

New signs completed and ready to be picked up!

It looked beautiful and ready for new signage. Throughout the rest of the evening and into the following morning, we carefully measured, printed, and cut vinyl to the optimal size and real estate across the sides of the cars. Then we applied the vinyl using partially dry and partially wet application methods using a horizontal hinge.

Vibrant, printed vinyl

It turned out fantastic. The printed red on white vinyl turned out way more vibrant than the previous stacked vinyls. We also replaced the phone numbers on all three sides with the company’s website address.

Jon was very pleased with the installation and requested that we place both the graphic designer’s logo, and CDA Sign’s logo in the rear window. We did.

We greatly appreciate the work that Rush Delivery gave us, and look forward to taking care of his future cars and sign needs.

Coeur d'com vehicle graphics by CDA Sign!

Derek at Coeur d’com got in touch with us recently about creating and installing large vehicle graphics for the company’s Nissan Cube. Initially we were looking at doing a full car wrap, but later decided on the clean and crisp look of large vehicle signage in high performance vinyl. After showing Coeur d’com a few mockups of what we could do, we decided to start with large logo pieces stretching across the sides of the vehicle at an angle, with more pieces to follow.

After freshly washing the Nissan Cube, owner Jeff Adams dropped it off at CDA Sign for the day. We had already Photoshop’d how the signage would look on the vehicle, but since things are always a little different in real life, we re-measured and put our vinyl cutter to work.

We began with the red heart of the logo for the passenger side, making sure that it fit just the way we measured. After cutting the black, “Coeur d’com” text, we lined it and the heart up against the Nissan Cube to make sure our measurements were correct and that everything would look great. After we were satisfied with how it would look and were everything would go, we placed markers on the Cube with masking tape, and then began installing the heart. After the heart was installed using a wet application method, we installed the black text of the logo directly on top. We then repeated this process on the drivers side of the vehicle.

To top it off, we placed the Coeur d’com phone number and website url on the back right of the vehicle. It turned out great! The owners were very happy with it. One thing about using straight, high performance vinyl is that it is very vibrant, and really looked amazing on that pearl white Nissan Cube.

Thank you Coeur d’com for your business!
