In a perfect world, vinyl vehicle wraps would be designed and installed flawlessly every time, meaning there would never be a need to re-do or fix improperly installed or poorly designed wraps. Alas, the world we live in is not perfect and this means Team Acme, Inc. is frequently fixing messed up vinyl wraps.
Here are a few of the most common fleet wrap mistakes we run into:
Simply said: It’s not a good idea to install vinyl on top of rusty vehicles. The adhesive on the wrap will not adhere properly to the car’s rusty spots and the rust will cause the vinyl to crack and peel prematurely.
If your car has rusty spots, then don’t ignore it! Before you wrap your vehicle in vinyl, bring your car into a professional, like Team Acme, Inc., to remove rusty spots.
Another mistake we commonly see here at Team Acme, Inc. is incorrectly installed vinyl vehicle wraps. The vehicles underneath the vinyl are in great shape—no rust spots, zero chipping paint, etc. Unfortunately, the person who designed the wrap or installed the wrap did a poor job.
Here’s the thing: You want the vinyl wrap on your car to look good for however long it’s on your car and you want it to last a long time. Therefore, you need the wrap to be installed properly and accurately (misaligned seams are not acceptable!)
When looking for a professional who can design and install the vinyl vehicle wraps you want for your fleet of cars, make sure the person is certified and has industry-level training.
Choose a professional who has a temperature-controlled location for vinyl wrap installations, because extremely hot and extremely cold temperatures negatively affect vinyl during wrap installation. Also, it’s a good idea to hire a professional who offers warranties for premature defects, like: cracking, fading, and/or peeling.
Last, but not least, we often see poorly designed vinyl vehicle wraps. The fonts might be killer, but if the typography is illegible, then what’s the point of saying anything at all?
Here at Team Acme, Inc., we see wraps every day that are simply too busy. There is too much going on in one space and this makes difficult for passers by to read the advertisement (which completely defeats the purpose of the wrap!)
Don’t put too much information into the designs of vinyl vehicle wraps. Fleet graphics should be simple and legible, because your goal is to grab the attention of passers by who might only have a few seconds to look at your ad.
The best way to avoid mistakes like these with vinyl vehicle wraps is to come to the right place the first time for your vinyl vehicle wraps. Team Acme, Inc. in Henderson, Nevada is that place
