What are trailer graphics?
Trailer graphics are letters and images applied to the exterior of a trailer. Made from vinyl wrap or adhesive decals, trailer signs often include a company’s name, logo and important information (website, address, phone number, etc.). Trailer signs may also feature products and slogans – whatever you want to include can be incorporated into the design.
Types of trailer signs
Trailers provide a large canvas on which to advertise your company. Sometimes you’ll want to make use of every inch, but other times small and simple looks best. In most cases, the way you mix together letters and images, and the general concept of your trailer graphics and wraps, will come down to taste. Here are some options to consider.
Trailer lettering can be used to display a business’ name, slogan and contact information. This can be done using simple letters or unique, eye-catching fonts and colours. This type of lettering uses auto decals to securely affix the text to the trailer. The letters will remain adhesive for a long time, but can easily be removed if desired. Take a look at some examples of trailer lettering we’ve created for clients in the past.
Image graphics (Decals for Trailers)

The benefits of trailer signs
Graphics, like your brand name or logo, immediately turn your trailers into mobile billboards. If your trailer is parked in one place for and extended period, the same group of individuals are likely to pass by on a regular basis, each time becoming more and more familiar with your brand. If your trailer is on the move, you’ll be able to make a first impression on as many people as you pass on the road. Trailers are an especially great canvas for mobile advertisements because they offer an expansive surface that can accommodate lots of crucial information.
But trailer signs go beyond functioning as an advertisement; they’re also a mobile calling card. When an interested person spots your vehicle on the road they need only take a quick photo to get your website address and phone number.
The benefits offered by trailer graphics are more important now than ever. Consider the declining effectiveness of conventional advertising mediums – newspaper readership continues to dwindle and more and more Canadians and cutting the cord on cable. Meanwhile, vehicle graphics, including trailer graphics, have remained effective since the time wagons were the primary mode of transportation.
Another important benefit of trailer signs is that they require a one-time fee that covers you for as long as your trailer is on the road. Whereas you pay monthly rental fees to advertise on a billboard, your ad stays on your trailer for as long as you want.
Who uses trailer signs?
If your company ships freight or provides in-home services that require trailers to transport equipment, trailer graphics are almost a must. That’s also the case for companies that operate directly out of their trailer, such as food trucks. After all, customers are going to be much more interested in a food truck displaying images of its delicious wares, rather than one that’s a joyless white box.
Using trailer signs as a method of advertising is especially useful for companies that require trailers to be out and about, since fewer eyes will see them if they’re sitting on the lot.
