Trailer Decals Options
Vinyl lettering decals for trailers – they are directly cut from a solid colored vinyl material on a precision plotter. The trailer lettering is one of the most cost-effective options, and it’s often used together with graphics such as the company logo.
Printed vinyl decals for trailers – when the required graphics are comparatively more complex, printed decals with multiple colors will be the best choice. ACME printed graphics with top-quality inks on durable adhesive vinyl material. Shape die-cut decals or exact die-cut decals are both available.
Reflective tape for trailers – ACME reflective stickers are fabricated from 3M durable vinyl material which keeps excellent retroreflective performance even under severe weather conditions.
ACME specialized in custom trailer decals. You can send us your artwork, or have our in-house designers do it for you. We will work with you to find out the most suitable graphic solutions within your budget.
How to Choose Decals for Trailers?
Confirm the size of your graphic – The size and design will affect the final cost of the decals. Trailer wraps have the most eye-catching effect but cost higher, trailer decals and stickers are more affordable and barely need installation skills. If you have no idea about which size or design will be the most suitable one, just contact us for a FREE consultation.
Choose the material – We offer two vinyl material options for our trailer decals. The standard vinyl material has an average lifespan of three to five-year for outdoor use. If you are looking for something more durable we recommend our premium grade vinyl which has an average lifespan of up to 9 years.
Choose to fabricate methods – ACME fabricated decals with screening printing or digital printing. Screen printed graphic products are more durable but usually suited for large quantity orders, while digital printing is more flexible on the production and suited for complex graphics. We will suggest the most suitable graphic solutions based on your requirements and expected budget.

Installation Steps for Trailer Stickers and Decals
Step 1 – Get the tools ready
Squeegee, scissors or blade, water-soluble marker, masking tape, tape measure, cloth, warm water or other common household cleaning item
Step2 – Thoroughly clean the surface
Use warm water, soap, or isopropyl alcohol to clean the surface then wipe it with a dry cloth. Make sure that the surface is completely dry before moving on to the next step.
Step3 – Position the decal
Use a tape measure to confirm the correct position of the vinyl decal or lettering, mark the position with a water-soluble marker, then tape the decal down on the surface with masking tape. Then run a long piece of tape across the top of the decal to form a hinge.
Step 4 – Remove the backing paper and squeegee the decal
Slowly peel away the backing paper from the vinyl decals. While holding the bottom end of the decal away from the surface, use the edge of the squeegee to apply firm pressure in wide, even strokes. Start from the center of the decal and smooth air outwards towards the edge of the sticker.
Step 5 – Remove the transfer tape
Once you’ve applied the decal, slowly peel off the transfer tape, and you will get a freshly placed decal for your trailer!
