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.

Contractor van graphics Northeast OHMore people are choosing to remodel or build additions to their homes than ever before. Instead of venturing into the mercurial housing market, homeowners are choosing to upgrade their homes. This is making the general contracting industry more profitable and more competitive than ever before. With the competition so fierce, you need to use every resource available to you for getting your name in front of potential customers.

A growing number of general contractors are turning to spot vehicle graphics for Northeast Ohio for their fleet of work trucks. This gets their name out there on the road and on the jobsite, where they are showcasing their work. OnSite General Contractors appreciated the importance of building their name recognition throughout the area, so they contacted Epic Signs & Graphics for contractor van decals in Northeast Ohio.

Some Information About Our Client

Fleet Decals Northeast OHFrom their headquarters on Sharon Drive in Westlake, OnSite General Contractors is made up of a team of experienced professionals, who work together to complete high quality projects that exceed their clients’ expectations. They remodel, build, and design bathrooms, kitchens, basements, decks, and more.

When a company that provides such a valuable service to local homeowners came to us for vehicle vinyl lettering in Northeast OH, we were more than happy to get right down to work. We began designing sharp, vibrant graphics for OnSite after we acquired a good understanding of their vision and goals during the initial consultation.

OnSite already had the artwork they wanted us to use. We had to incorporate this artwork into a layout that would be attention grabbing and memorable. After we created the design, we provided a proof for OnSite. Once they approved of the design, we used our wide format digital printers to print the design on Oracal cut vinyl. Finally, we installed the graphics professionally. In the end, they were ecstatic about the results.

Van Graphics for Your Fleet

On the back and sides of their van, they advertise their company information and logo.

Take a moment to look at what we did for OnSite. You will notice that their services and a phone number for contacting them are easily readable. On average, people will have about three seconds to look at your graphics. This makes it imperative that you only include pertinent information on your vehicle and that it is simple for passersby to read it in a hurry. These principles guide us in our graphics creation process.
