How Choosing A Custom Logo Is Like Picking Your Next Tattoo

At Royalty Core, we’re strong believers in expressing your personality through your truck. Most truck customizations are focused on big changes - new wheels and tires, a lift kit, a whole new bumper, a new grille or headache rack (from Royalty Core, naturally), and so on. While these customizations provide value beyond cosmetic benefits (as they can improve performance and utility), some truck owners are hesitant to make such big changes to their pride and joy.

When you've got a truck that performs and functions exactly as you like it but you feel that it needs more personality, what do you do?

Add a custom emblem, of course!

One of the most viewed elements of the truck is the grille, and what better way to personalize it than to adorn it with an emblem designed by you? You can make it a completely unique and one-of-a-kind add-on. You have the freedom to customize and personalize your emblem with virtually no limits. In a way, it's just like a tattoo (except not quite as permanent as a tattoo but more permanent than a decal, like we talk about in this blog post).

There are many ways to alter your appearance -- getting a haircut or piercing a body part, for instance -- but a tattoo opens up a whole new level of artistic expression. A tattoo can convey exactly what you want in the form of a logo, phrase, animal, symbol, or anything else you can think of. The same can be said about an emblem on your truck grille. The possibilities are endless.

The Process Of Creating A Custom Logo

The process of ordering a custom logo from Royalty Core has just a few steps:

  1. View our gallery of custom emblems so you can see what we can offer or get ideas.
  2. Call or email us and let us know what custom emblem you'd like
  3. Work with our designers to finalize your design
  4. Watch for your custom emblem to arrive at your door

That's it!

Of course, step 2 is often easier said than done. The process of choosing a custom emblem for your truck is very much like choosing a tattoo. You'll want to look at what some other people are doing, view a few drawings, and see what looks best.

Our Truck Emblem Design Team Is Ready To Serve

While some of our customers manage to design their own emblem without any help from us, most of our customers work closely with our design team. Typically:

  • The design process begins by letting our design team know what you have in mind. If you've got a sketch or an abstract idea, send it to us.
  • Like any good tattoo artist, our design team is trained to work with you to create the perfect design. We’ll email you all of our drawings for approval, and we won’t finalize anything until you’re completely satisfied with the design.
  • To make your emblem even more unique, you can choose from a variety of color and finish options. We offer unique airbrushing and lighting options that can really make your custom emblem "pop."

You wouldn't necessarily get a full sleeve tattoo without putting a lot of thought and care into your design, would you? Like tattoos, our custom emblems are meant to last forever (though they are removable if you decide to do something different in the future), and they also require thought and care. After all, people will see your truck every day. It's important to get your design just right before Royalty Core starts making your emblem.

Tips For Finding The Perfect Design For Your Emblem

Outfitting your truck with a custom emblem is a pretty big decision, so it’s important to take all the time you need to come up with the right design. Here are some tips for coming up with the perfect design.

  1. When working with our team of designers to create your custom emblem design, it’s a good idea to give them all the information you can. For example: what other mods have you done to your truck, did you delete chrome, what is the wheel design? Let them know what you want your emblem to represent, what color(s) you want it to have, the design style you’re looking for, and anything else you can think of.
  2. It also helps if you can provide sample designs and go over what you like and dislike about each one.
  3. There are a lot of emblems on our website you can look at - the more time you spend looking over our gallery of emblems, the easier it will be for you to give our designers notes.
  4. Generally speaking, the best-looking emblems contrast with your grille and stand out.
  5. Speaking of grilles, most factory truck grilles are a less than perfect choice for mounting your custom emblem. While there are some things you can do to make sure your custom emblem is secured to your factory grille, you might consider upgrading your grille and emblem at the same time.
