Stott Plant Hire sign written trucks

I was commissioned to traditionally signwrite the Stott Plant Hire fleet of concrete pumping trucks!
Below are some of the trucks he has at the moment:

Dean made the decision than his new sign written trucks were going to be more appealing to the eye. He wanted to stick with his red, white and blue theme but for the lettering to have a little more class compared to the rest of his fleet as some of the older trucks were also getting to the stage of being replaced. The cheap vinyl stickers were also starting to break down and flake off due to the rough building site conditions it visits on a daily basis.

The lettering is a 3 tone pearlescent chisel lettering formed in a way to create a 3D effect. I have also incorporate Deans ‘S’ logo into the background of the the doors.

This will now be the new and much improved look for Stott Plant Hire in the future.
Modern signwriting but traditional methods.

An advantage of having traditional sign written trucks is that the paint used will over the 10 year life of these trucks slowly deteriorate at the same rate as the original paintwork. Plastic vinyl letters tend to start to look out of place making the original paint work look a lot worse as the truck ages.

Another one of Dean’s sign written trucks had totally different spaces available to sign write so this made it more difficult to fit all the wording to suite the other truck, so with mine and Dean’s input we decided on a slightly different layout due to the trucks unusual shape. We kept his now familiar signature font and colour combination but we added a little extra with the ‘Pitzmeiser Elephant Logo’ divided over the pumping arm which seems to work really well.
