Whether you’ve checked out our article on how to calculate break even for a vehicle wrap and decided that it’s a good option for your business or talked to a business partner who recommended getting some kind of graphic, the fact is that vehicle graphics are well known as an efficient, low-cost marketing tool.
Now the only thing you have to decide is whether you want a full vehicle wrap, a partial or some other variation. Let’s explore a few of your options together so you can decide what will work best for your marketing and business goals.
A vehicle wrap is kind of like a really big sticker for your vehicle. Once you (and possibly a graphic designer) have nailed down the look you want to give your vehicle and what information to include on it, the design will be digitally printed onto vinyl sheets using a high-res, large format printer.
Then the large vinyl “stickers” are laminated to protect the quality of the print and prevent color fading and abrasion. An experienced installer will then apply these vinyl panels to your vehicle, which are designed to conform to all the curves and edges of your vehicle for a perfect fit. If it’s installed properly, it should have the look and feel of a new coat of paint.
Vehicle wraps are generally removable. As long as they’re applied to a clean vehicle with factory quality paint that’s not chipped or damaged in some way and removed within the warranty period, they’ll come off clean without damaging your vehicle. This means you can still wrap your company vehicles even if they’re leases.
You’ll also want to decide whether you want to wrap the entire vehicle, or just certain parts of it. The first is called a full vehicle wrap, the second a partial wrap. While covering the entire vehicle really adds wow-factor, choosing a partial wrap is definitely more economical and still effective.
There’s a special type of vinyl – the “sticker” material – that’s actually perforated with many very tiny round holes. This gives your drivers an unobstructed view of the road while allowing graphics to be placed over the windows. People outside the car will only see the graphics. So not only does this add visual appeal to your vehicle, it also gives your workers some privacy, which can be especially important if they have to carry expensive equipment to their job sites.
Now you can also do rear side windows, but Nevada (and other state laws) generally prohibit graphics from being installed on the windshield or driver and passenger side windows.
Cutout vinyl letters and numbers are a popular choice because they’re low cost and allow companies and staff to keep track of individual vehicles within a larger fleet. They can be used to place DOT numbers on a commercial truck. Sometimes companies will use them to include the company name and contact info in a color and font of their choice. This option can also be combined with full color digitally printed graphics and decals.
