Car Wraps 101: Everything You Need to Know

Posted by John Grigoli

After a few years, vehicles often need a refresh. Sometimes, a business vehicle needs a fresh look to draw in new business. Other times, the paint on a vehicle has started to chip (caused by things like weather, sand, rocks, moisture, even bird droppings). However, a new paint job is not only expensive, but it could damage the resale value and it takes, on average, a week to complete—sometimes up to three depending on the vehicle size. If you’ve been putting off getting that new paintwork, car wraps are a fast, inexpensive solution! Here are the basics you need to know about wrapping your car.

 

What is Vinyl Wrap?

A vinyl car wrap is a thin, adhesive film that is applied over the paint of your car. But what’s great about this is it’s not just a decal that covers one area—it can literally wrap around your entire vehicle—and it allows you to change the car’s appearance temporarily, keeping the paint underneath protected.

Why Vinyl Vehicle Wraps?

There are many benefits to wrapping your car in vinyl. As stated earlier, it protects the paint underneath. It’s also easily removable, customizable, low cost and quick to apply. Wraps also require little maintenance and are highly durable. And it fits like a glove! When we create the wrap together with you, it is custom made to fit your vehicle, working with the locations of the doors, windows and lights to have maximum impact. 

For business vehicles and fleets, a wrap is a great way to advertise your services 24/7. Think about this:

  • Americans drive an average of 29 miles per day. That's a big window of undistracted opportunity to get in front of potential customers.
  • Individual vehicle advertising generates between 30,000-70,000 daily vehicular impressions.
  • Color improves brand recognition by 80%. A well designed wrap is going to stick in prospects minds.

What are the Options with Vinyl Wrap?

But the best part about vinyl car wraps are all the options!

  • Digital Print: Any kind of graphic design can be wrapped around your vehicle with cutting edge digital printing.
  • Matte: Matte is a popular choice, especially in black. Though it is often used for personal vehicles in lieu of a costly paint job, a matte look almost always grabs the attention of onlookers.
  • Color Change: Sometimes we just need a color change. By using a vinyl wrap in a solid, new color, you can the change your car’s color at a fraction of the price of a paint job, plus you can remove the vinyl at any time if you want to change the color back.
  • Carbon Fiber: Ideal for cars in the motor vehicle industry, a textured vinyl wrap can give your vehicle a luxury, high-end feel. It can be applied to the exterior, or just to the gear shift or dashboard on the interior.
  • Fluorescent: Thanks to state-of-the-art design techniques, you can make your ride really stand out, even glow in the dark! It can look great when used for racing (as shown below), for safety purposes or even as just as decal.

Vehicle Wraps - Partial Wraps to Save on the Budget

Vehicle Graphics Cleveland

Are you looking for a cost-effective marketing method that gets maximum visibility?

If yes, then car wraps are a good choice. However, going for a full car wrap can prove to be pretty expensive. One alternative to full vehicle wraps that are as effective as them but cost-friendly are partial vehicle wraps. You will get great visibility of your marketing campaign while at the same time save money that you would have spent on full vehicle wraps. In short, a partial vehicle wrap is an excellent choice. Both small companies and large corporations use these partial wraps to create a professional marketing look and convey a great marketing message.

Here are some economic benefits of using partial wraps.

1. Less Vinyl

First things first, the biggest financial advantage of partial wraps is the fact that it uses lesser vinyl material. A partial wrap only covers between 25-75% of the painted surface of the vehicle. Using high-performance vinyl for vehicles can be very expensive. Therefore, you will save money if you use less vinyl.

 

2. Shorter Installation Time

Another benefit of using partial wraps is that it takes less time for them to be installed as compared to full wraps. Full vehicle wraps require detailed work. The installers have to work around curves and remove hardware or trim around door handles, headlights, front and rear of the vehicle. This is thorough work and takes a lot of time and effort. The installation time increases for a full vehicle wrap.

Partial wraps, on the other hand,does not require as much detailed work simply because there are less obstacles. Because of this the process is comparatively simpler and less time-taking as compared to full vehicle wraps. Thus, choosing a partial wrap over a full vehicle wrap can be a great decision.

You need to approve the design of the wrap and simply get it through to production and installation. All of this can be done by a simplified process which will not only save you time and effort but also money. Therefore, partial wraps are preferred by companies that are looking for smart fleet advertising solutions.

Common Fallacies About Partial Truck Wraps in Cleveland

Posted by John Grigoli

Mar 13, 2014 8:00:00 AM

Van Wrap Middleburg Hts, Oh.jpgFrom talking to clients, we have heard a lot of misinformation regarding partial vehicle wraps these days. This entry will hopefully put an end to these misnomers including that wraps peel, crack, and fade easily. We'll also put to rest that only businesses with vehicles that are always traveling can benefit from them, and that buying a partial vehicle wrap is too expensive. The best way to tackle misconceptions is with the facts. This is what we will do here.

 

“Partial Vehicle Wraps Are Not for Me: I Am a Franchise Owner”

Franchise owners do need to incorporate the graphics and colors of their franchisor, but they also have the opportunity to include their own local flavor into their partial vehicle wraps and vinyl lettering. Lead locals to your individual website rather than the national site with a QR Code on your wrap. You can also include your motto or slogan. You will win over new customers by revealing that your franchise has a unique feel that sets it apart from other faceless franchises within the company.

“Only Vehicles That Are on the Road Constantly Will Benefit From Vehicle Wraps”

Truck stickers Fairview Park, OhIf you just drive 13,000 miles per year, the amount a normal American drives, with your wrapped company vehicle, you can count on thousands of people seeing and remembering your graphics. In all likelihood though, you travel more than the average person as an entrepreneur and business owner attending frequent meetings.

Also, do not forget the number of people who will see your eye catching vehicle graphics as your car sits outside of your business. Vinyl lettering on your vehicle serves as a billboard for your business as your company vehicle sits idle outside of your store.

“It Is either All or Nothing with Vehicle Wraps”

As long as they are done right, vehicle graphic and vinyl lettering combos and partial wraps are just as effective as the wildly popular full body vehicle graphics. Many go with this solution for their company vehicle because it is an affordable option. You can get the same vibrant colors and graphics and attract customers with a partial vehicle wrap.

“Cracking, Fading, and Peeling Are Big Problems with Vinyl”

Window decals North Olmsted, OhSignage technology has come a long way in the past decade. Built-in ultraviolet protection comes standard with many of the vinyl films produced by today’s manufacturers. We are able to protect the vinyl even more from harsh environments by adding a layer of laminate. Vinyl is more durable than ever, allowing most vehicle wraps to last as long as five years or longer.

“I Cannot Afford a Vehicle Wrap”

With the advances in technology, the prices for vehicle wraps have also become quite affordable. And, when you choose partial vehicle wraps in Cleveland, the prices are even more reasonable. Plus, when compared to traditional forms of advertising (television, newspaper, radio, etc.), vehicle wraps give you more bang for your buck. In fact, one study estimates that you would need to spend $130,000 in advertising to reach the same number of people as one vehicle wrap.
