When you put a sponsor's logo or name on a car, do you usually pay for the vinyl or do they?

If a sponsor is giving you cash to race, I would think you would want to eat the cost of the graphics.

It all depends on the sponsor and how much they want to give. I have a couple that give me cash and pay for the lettering and others that just give you the money and be done with it, all and all its pretty much up to them.

i agree with u rayn i have both types and if i have to get a few made big deal. im not sure if the other tracks do this but we have a sponsor night where we get the sponsors tickets for $2 each and they get to come see the races and it dont cost them a thing

We do graphics and lettering,And I must say, most of our customers pay for the sponsors lettering.

I always put the cost of graphics into the price of the package, unless they have graphics available already. I figure about 10-15% of the sponsorship should be spent on graphics. I feel it is better not to keep asking for more money. A few more sponsorship ideas, don't call it sponsorship call it a marketing opportunity or marketing partnership. "Sponsorship" sounds like a little league team handout. At our level almost all money comes from an aquaintence or a referal from a friend so network, network, network. And always be on the look out for new ways to promote your sponsors.
