Vehicle wraps are one of the most cost effective forms of advertising with the potential of getting you hundreds of thousands of views every day. They can help build awareness for your business as they promote your company all day, every day, everywhere you go.
If you've never had vehicle wraps before, then you might have some questions about them and how they work. We've listed below the most frequently asked questions that we get about vehicle wraps to try and help you decide whether they are right for your business.
Vehicle graphics are a type of signage for your business vehicles that let your customers know more about your business, even when you are parked or driving around.
The sky is the limit when it comes to what you can display on your company vehicle. Here are the most common choices:
Company slogan or tagline
Contact information (phone number, website, email address)
Concise information about your business (what do you do?)
Company branding, images, and colours
High-quality, professionally installed vehicle graphics can last several years. If they are taken care of they may even last longer than your vehicle.
The length of time will depend on weather conditions and how you look after it overall i.e. hand washing as opposed to taking it through a car wash.
Keeping your vehicle wrap clean and free from dirt and debris will help to prevent scratches on the surface and will prolong its life.
The best way to clean vehicle wraps is to hand wash them. Using a touchless car wash will also work but avoid taking it through an automatic car wash that has brushes as these can dull the finish on your wrap.
Even though vehicle wraps can last a long time, you may want to change them from time to time. Some reasons why you would change your wrap include:
You update your brand so you want your wrap to reflect this change
The information for your company changes
You want a fresh look so your audience doesn't tune out your message
Vinyl wraps do not damage the paint on your vehicle, in fact they can help to protect it from things like minor scratches, fading from the sun, minor abrasions, and damage caused by stones chipping your vehicle.
Vinyl wraps are applied to your vehicle's surface with a special adhesive that is activated with a water-based solution. The wrap itself is made from a poly vinyl chloride or PVC material that has plasticizers added to it to make it extremely flexible.
The length of time it takes to install your graphics will depend on the size of your vehicle, the shape of your vehicle, the complexity of your design, and how much of your vehicle you want covered.
A small design can take as little as one day whereas a larger, more complex project can take up to 3 or more days.
When vehicle wraps are removed your paint will look the same as it did before it was applied. However, the removal of wraps should only be attempted by a professional sign installation company.
If your vehicle wrap gets damaged in an accident, then get your vehicle repaired first. Then you can have the damaged pieces of the vehicle wrap replaced. Usually you don't have to replace the entire vehicle wrap as long as only a portion of the wrap is damaged.
No. You can choose how much of your vehicle you want to cover anywhere from a single door to a complete full wrap.
