They provide standard and custom stripe packages for Featherlite Trailers and Dealer.

The owner of Featherlite Graphics is Steve Durst. The reason for this company’s success in being able to put specialty paintings on large utility trailers is because of their new building with four new 24 feet wide and 15 feet in length paint booths.

Ninety-one percent of all people notice the words and graphics on vehicles. Featherlite Graphics helps make trailers and vehicles moving billboards. This is advertising in a big way.

Featherlite Graphics has the latest in computer and paint technology that is available. Their experienced staff knows how to get their customers noticed.

Computer generated vinyl graphics are cut or printed on high performance vinyl that has a three to seven year durability factor. This depends on the customers’ specifications and on how long it will stand the elements, but vinyl decals are extremely strong and can be put through some grueling environments and situations. Large selections of colors are available for cut decals, including specialty vinyl formulas such as reflective, mirror chrome and gold polyester films. Photographic images can also be put on vehicles that give a larger than life impact.

The design team at Featherlite Graphics works closely with customers. Customers send in their company logo or art work and Featherlite will show them what it will look like in any figuration the customer desires. Or if the company is not sure about their logo, Featherlite Graphics will provide them with a complete design service no matter how large or small the job is.

Besides the large job of making eye-popping graphics and specialty paintings on vehicles, Featherlite Graphics has items ranging from coffee mugs and mouse pads to T-shirts. All images are at photographic quality and can be made in quantities as few as one or 1,000 or more. These items might help to promote a business or school.
