What trends are you seeing currently in the vehicle graphics segment?
MCP: We are in high demand for personal vehicle customization. Chrome delete, colour accents, roof and hood wraps are usually a constant in our shop. We can provide so many different options for our clients to make their rides unique; from different vinyl textures, finishes, and colours, to loud and bold graphics.
Full and partial company vehicle wraps are also very popular. Our customers are always very impressed with the final product. Our printers produce outstanding print quality.
What lies ahead for TNT Customs Graphics & Signs?
MCP: Our TNT Kits department has really caught on for power sports graphics, and I see the print-and-ship vehicle graphics as a growth area for us as well. Online shopping has grown dramatically over the last year, and we are working on ways to make our products easy to purchase and available online.
In the next few years, I’m also hoping to offer training classes to teach the basics of vehicle graphic design, production, and installation. Our staff can provide expert instruction for people who may be interested in these careers. It would certainly help our business fill its hiring needs, and I’m sure there are other shops out there that are also in need of trained staff.
We may also expand to another location. Things are going well for us now with our experienced and dedicated team and our great production equipment. We’ll see what happens next. The sky is the limit.
