Are you in the process of ordering custom US DOT decals for your new truck? Not to worry, we are here to answer a few questions you might have.
Your USDOT number font should be a strong, clear and easy to read font. You can use font types such as Arial, Bebas, Times New Roman, or any san serif typefaces. The goal is to make sure your USDOT number and any other regulation numbers you need to display is clearly visible and easy to read. This gives the DOT officers or DOT cameras an easy time reading and inputting your regulation numbers into their database. You want to avoid script fonts that are difficult to read such as cursive style fonts.
Also, we recommend displaying your USDOT numbers professionally to make easier for you, the DOT officers or any authority that might stop you. This will save you time and headaches throughout the course of your trucking career.
A few other things to keep in mind are to make sure you display your USDOT number on both sides of your commercial vehicle in a 2-inch lettering. Your lettering must be visible from a distance of at least 50 feet away. Also, your lettering color must contrast with the color of your vehicle for easy readability.
If you have any questions, we would be more than happy to assist.
