$500 for both sides, installed by a professional shop, I had them do my three trucks all the same and they are all holding up great!

Pay 100% upfront and then they would do the design work. Granted I don't expect people to work for free without a promise of getting the job, but if you have nothing to show me, why would I bother?

I ended up spending $1000 on my partial wrap - it goes from the front doors all the way around the tailgate. They installed it while I ate lunch and drank beer with my wife. It was a good day, and they did a great job.

Next project strip, clean, and paint the pipe rack.

Also, I should add: The company I used did 100% of the design work upfront with no paperwork no contract no down payment. They collected 50% once the proofs were approved to cover their ass on the production part of the project, and the other 50% upon completion of installation.

They were great people small business, semi-local, nice to work with and they did a really good job. I got 2 compliments on the truck before I even drove out of town to head home.

I'd much rather spend $1000 with some local small business than send my $800 off to some guy on the internet and then struggle with the installation.

Seriously, I can not stress this enough, CAST vinyl. I used to work at a sign shop. Quality vinyl is key. And if you pick oddball colors they may be really old because a roll of vinyl is like 600$ and they may be reticent to throw out old stuff. It's not something you can really prevent but just ask and say you heard that some sign shops are like that. Even if they are like that they may feel guilty enough to not do it to you.
