It used to be that if you wanted your vehicle to look this awesome, or unique, you had to pay thousands of dollars for a custom paint job. But, automotive decal materials have come a long way in the last 5 years, and now you can give your vehicle a custom look for as little as $100 to $200 dollars. If you could make your car look this unique and awesome for $100, would you do it? Heck yeah. Not only because it is the coolest thing ever, but because vehicle decals are a very effective and inexpensive form of advertising with a huge return on investment. In essence, they are a roaming billboard, and you would be hard-pressed to advertise anywhere for $100 these days, so why not take advantage of them? Plus, if it turns out you don’t like it or you are selling the vehicle, you can always remove decals, you can’t remove a custom paint job.
Our vehicle wraps and decals are weatherproof, high quality vinyl and ink with a UV protective coating added. On average, a vehicle decal can be expected to last about 5-6 years before it starts to fade or gets scratched up from weather. Depending on the climate where you live, and if you keep the vehicle in a garage, park it in the shade most of the time or not, will also determine how long your decals last. Sun is the most damaging force when it comes to decals.
Partial Vehicle Wraps vs Full Wraps:
You’ve probably seen them; cars or trucks that are one big decal, with the entire vehicle being covered with advertising, art and logos. We don’t necessarily recommend full vehicle wraps simply because they tend to blend into traffic more. Partial vehicle wraps tend to actually have more impact than full wraps because the design stand out from the vehicle more and the vehicle’s body shape is used to accentuate the artwork. In other words, when it comes to vehicle wraps, less is more. Automotive sign shops tend to go overboard with wraps and then they have the opposite effect of what is intended: to get your business noticed.
Also, we don’t usually recommend full vehicle wraps as they tend to crack over time.
How do You Get Started with a Vehicle Wrap?
First, you have to contact our design team and tell them what you are thinking about having done. Once a budget is set, that will determine how much decal work you can have done. If you do not have any ideas in mind as to how you want your vehicle to look, our automotive design team can certainly come up with some for you. Just send us copies of your logos and business information and we can send you 2-3 custom design ideas to choose from. Once your design is decided on, it will take at least 1-2 days to complete your vehicle wrap depending on how detailed the project is. So be prepared to be without your vehicle for at least 1-2 days.
We will also require that you drop your vehicle off at our shop, so please arrange for transportation back to your home or office after you drop off your vehicle. To get started, please contact us with your vehicle decal project ideas and we can email a bid to you.
