Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked Questions:


What Photo size & type of files should I send you?

We recommend the photos be saved as a .JPEG or if you can’t an .AI file. All photos should be taken with a 3 mega pixel or higher camera taken on the best quality setting.  You can also send us prints taken from a 35mm or Digital camera printed out on Glossy Photo paper Via snail mail. If you send in prints they should be either 3X5 or 4X6 and they will be returned.

How do I send in my Photo’s?

Within 48hrs of receiving your order form you will receive an e-mail from Car Show Depot with an FTP site to go and instructions on how to download your photo’s

How many Photos should I send in?

You’ll want to send in at least 3-5 photos. (3) of the outside (1 being a ¾ view shot), (1) of the engine and (1) of the Interior. Other pictures you may want to send in are: Emblems/Logos (Shot as straight on as you can) a shot of you working on the car, tail lights, dash, and any photo of items that make your vehicle stand out. We won’t use them all, but the more we have the more creativity we’ll have.  After looking them over we may request that you take new pictures or a picture of a certain area.  But don’t get hung up on Pictures we try to make our boardz tell a story, not to show a bunch of photos of a vehicle that is sitting right in front of the viewer.

The photo of my car I like best is Blurry and the color is off slightly Can you work with this?

Not really. We would suggest that you take new Photos or look for others.  If you have any questions with your photos feel free to e-mail us.

I have a Photo that I want to use but there’s a tree / person in the background. Can you remove?

Yes.  Once the background is removed to the best of our ability we will e-mail you a copy for your approval.

Can you change the background in one of my photos?

If it’s a photo that we cut out, then sure. But let’s talk about this before we start changing backgrounds.

Color matching?

We’ll try to do our best but sometimes it is out of our hands. Due to the printing process or where we grab the sample from on the picture.

My Vehicle was in a magazine. Can you use some of these photos?

We can, but the quality may suffer. Send them to us and we’ll take a look. No guarantees.

How do I make a Payment?

At the time of your order you will be required to make a 50% deposit through Paypal. The balance will be due prior to Shipment and will also be made through Paypal


What happens if I get my board and there's a typo?

We will be sending you a Proof for you to APPROVE before we go to print. This way you have the opportunity to review the text for typo’s, punctuation and miss spellings before it’s printed.

Will my Board fade?

We can't say that it won't,  over time all boards will fade but you will have years of enjoyment from your show board before you will notice. ALL of our boards use UV inks during the printing process.

Is the Show Board water Resistant?

It will resist moisture.  Just make sure that you use a micro towel to wipe it off.


How do I clean my Show Board?

Use a damp Micro towel.

How will my Show Board stand up in the wind?

This has been a big concern of ours and weve done everything that can be done, besides bolting it to the ground or your car. We make no guarantees that our signs will not blow over. So place you Show Board in a location where if blown over will not hit your vehicle or others

Will my PVC Show Board warp?

Over time Maybe, It's plastic. We recommend that you don’t leave your Show Board in your vehicle on hot summer days. The inside of your vehicle could reach a temperature of over 200 degrees which will easily warp any board made by any of the designers on the web.


How long will it take to receive my Show Board?

Usually, you will receive the Proof in 5-10 working days and once the Proof has been approved it will take us 10-15 to make your board plus a week of shipping. Remember these are not just a print and stick it to a piece of foam cosr backing. It's will be worth the wait!

I need my Board for an upcoming show can I put a RUSH on it?

We can put a RUSH on your order your order for an extra fee, but lets talk about this at the time of the order.

Club discounts?

We do offer club discounts. If a club gets together and orders a minimum of 5 boards (all orders must be received with 48hrs of the first order) you will all receive a 10% discount.
