I am looking for a place to have decals made for the doors of my 53 3100. Would like a nice 1950s business period correct signs that I can apply.

a local sign maker should be able to help. I had one make me a stencil so I could have an authentic hand painted sign. Then a couple years later the signs were damaged and I found a real sign painter that hand painted my door signs.

Here are pics of the decals I have on my 58. Been on there about 5 years.

Also attached the gentlemen’s contact info who made them. Good guy to work with.

At the time, he could make three versions of the font, barely legible, worn, or looking brand new. I went with the worn version to match the trucks patina.

Check and Support your local business.
They can design anything you come up with!
Here is our truck. The Goat on the door the shop made from an actual picture of our Grand Champion Doe.
Then our daughter painted it on the doors.
The print shop made a reversal decal and then we painted the Logo.
It was fun.
Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

I wanted to have the ability to display different signs for different events/purposes (and/or to drive without a sign).

I bought 18" x 18" or 24" x 24' magnetic "decals".
