Giant Stick-On Trailer Decal Entertains Highway Travelers
Nobody tailgates too close behind Rathbun Angus’ livestock trailer because of the bull standing in an open doorway. Of course, once they realize the bull is really just a big decal, they pull up close to check it out. Jared and Jeff Lembcke, owners of FastSigns franchise, in Kennewick, Wash., helped Rathbun Angus come up with the arresting image.
  “We do lots of vinyl wraps for businesses so it was no problem coming up with something eye-catching for their trailer,” says Jared Lembcke.
  Rathbun provided professional quality pictures of one of their bulls standing in the doorway of the trailer. The Lembckes reviewed photos and the dimensions of the actual door to pick one that would look most realistic.
  “We wanted one that matched actual shadows and things,” says Lembcke. “Lighting can be kind of tricky. We had to match the proportions of the trailer and the door when deciding how big to enlarge the image.”
  Lembcke advises anyone interested in doing something similar to talk it over with a graphics professional like himself or his father. Identify the area to be covered, and get the highest quality image possible.
  “It really turned out amazing,” says Lembcke. “We did it 5 or 6 years ago, and we still hear comments about it.”
