Opportunities need to be grasped in both hands

With the now finished van and a huge amount of positive feedback through facebook from the online diary of its build,  it seemed we had created a van that stood out against the rest and was our new rolling advert for the business, a loud and proud, bright advert for our Tees, Embroidery, Vehicle Graphics and Custom Stickers service.😄 It started working too!...., more work started to flood in, T-Shirt work, stickers, cars, vans. Then one day, I will never forget this day as long as I live.....the opportunity to have a crack at a big job of doing livery on shall we say 'alot' of vehicles.

Me sorting the interior and Nick sorting the exterior. Also this gave me the chance to come up with a nice bright in your face design for the van in order for it to stand out to the public. It also gave us a chance to create those extra little touches like the embroidered seat covers which I embroidered with what has now become the new Boolies Moto Art logo.
