    Hi, can anyone recommend a site where we can pick/buy some graphics for the back of the motorhome.

    We have seen some great ones when we were away in Spain, but dont know where to go to buy one.

    Any help or advice will be appreciated.

    Ginny and Mike

    Hi

    Yes indeed, there are some real beauties, I looked at doing this too, the best graphics are air brushed by an artist, they can be found at most MH and bike shows.. but they are not cheap..

    I've also seen some really awful ones .. tacky and cheap looking, like a 'painting by numbers' done by a blind guy.. .:Eeek::Rofl1:

    What I really want is someone to pay me to advertise on the back, but no doubt some jobsworth CC warden would complain saying it was a commercial coach .. :Doh: :RollEyes:

    I Can help

    Yes I can help. Over the last few years I have made hundreds for buses and taxis and motohomes. I would suggest you create your own photo to about 8 million pix. and this will result in a very crisp and clear picture. When this is done let me know the size required and I can raise a price, simple.
    Cheers,

    Hi Ginny & Mike.
    I once when to look over a motor home belonging to Martin of 1 rv.
    His main business is signs he had a huge sticker type full colour USA flag with 1 RV written on the rear of his Damon daybreak.
    I am sure he can make what ever you design you like with out you having to paint yourself or have someone physically paint for you.
    He is based near Exeter Devon 118 118 will give you his number or my be he still has his own web site selling 5 wheels and rvs ?
    Martin likes to chat but saying that he really is a very helpful Guy.
    Good luck from Mark

    Please be aware that when you sell the MH/RV the prospective buyers may be put off by the artwork that you have chosen, i am not a kill-joy , but the MH i wanted had a HUGE Indian complete with feathers all over the MH like a rash. :Eeek:

    you could search the net for sign wizard leicester they have done me some advertising boards printed directly onto thin aloy sheets which can be attatched to your motorhome and removed again if you chose to sell your motor and they are a lot cheaper than i thought its worth a call ,they can stick it your motor as well if thats what you want ,hope this may be of interest. steve.

    graphics

    Hi

    Just had look for the Guys card. but cannot find it. However he goes to a lot of the shows, I got one done at the lincoln steam fair. he can print up to 60mm wide any lenght virtually if you want wider it comes in two or more sections, which can be tricky to match up.

    He has a 5er pulled by a smaller Volvo (F6?) truck. 5ftx2ft will cost aprox £70-00 cash.

    Removing graphics can usually be acheived, by juduicious use of a heat gun. OR a steam cleaner will often remove them too!!. (be warned!!). if you have your rig steamed off.

    Vinyl Graphics

    I gather you require some vinyl graphics for your motorhome. Well after over 25 years signwriting over 25,000 vans, buses, police cars etc I can help. The full colour graphics are normally made from the customers design or photograph supplied on a disc. Straight forward vinyl text or outline graphics can be either copied from your ideas or sourced from a vast choice on the internet.
    Feel free to contact me if you are stuck.
