    Default Marking your cars?

    I am new to the industry and to this forum.

    Just guessing... I assume most companies don't letter their cars for advertising. Maybe the SUV's or busses.

    What about license plate frames with your name/info on it?

    Was thinking that might be subtle but still there for people to see. Any ideas where to order these?

    certainly no marking of sedans, lic plate frames are good for that

    the other limo markings are always a great debate on here, it will be interesting to see what the comments are.

    We have personalized plates (no livery plates in IN) and are thinking of adding our logo as a small decal to the back windows. Most clients do not look at the back, but can create branding while in traffic, etc.

    We use magnetic sign on the doors. We are required to have our limos marked with company name, city town and dot number.

    Do you have to leave that on all the time?

    I like this idea.. We currently have the company name on the sides, (they started out running them with taxi meters, but shortly after I came on board the local cabbies got that changed, and I suggested yanking the meters and leaving it be), but with the meter in it, we had to have lettering and rates (we cheated, had cling on) on the side. But I'm planning to talk to the boss bout pulling the lettering, and was considering the back window. But I like this sticker idea much better!

    I have nothing. No signs at all. I do work for Carey, Music Express, Boston Coach, Diva and many other networks as well as serving three local concert venues. I let our other marketing methods build our name. I know Elton John, Tina Turner, Cher, Garth Brooks etc. don't want their cars looking like they are "rental" limousines and I know Boston Coach wants us to be "Boston Coach" when we pick up their clients so why ruin the illusion with signs?

    What is the opinion of putting the web site address on the back windshield?
