Trailer Name - Location and Font

Would anyone be willing to post a photo of their trailer name and font as it appears on their trailer? Did you use ETI to do the work or someone else? We are undecided on location and font for our 21' that is on order. Thanks for your help.

The bike on the back cuts it off in real world viewing, but thats ok. Might have gone with a larger sizing too, but its ok.

oooh another discussion I know something about!

Choosing a font that gives words life is called a text treatment. There are a gazillion fonts and making the best decision is tough! Perhaps if you'd like to share the name you've decided on and what it means to you... I can help?

For instance, Ten Forward. Notice how different it looks and how the font gives meaning to these words

Standard location - didn't specify. Standard Font size as well. We just changed the font to Poetsen One. Donna's right - one font may be better than another depending on the name.

I am of the design school that finds that 'novelty' fonts result in a cluttered, disjointed appearance. I went with the standard ETI font, above the rear window, but then I don't have extra brake lights.

We decided on the standard ETI font, but with an italicized Style. In retrospect, kinda wish we had it placed on the front instead of the big "Escape 21" that is there.

We used Segoe Script and asked ETI to have the graphics folks come as close as they could, pretty much right on.

Not exactly what we wanted, but we're happy with the result anyway. Standard font, low-cost stock imagery. Toto is headed for Vancouver Island (Tofino, Nanaimo, Victoria) next week!
