Justifying A Vehicle Wrap
At this point, almost everyone has seen or at least heard of a vehicle wrap to some degree or another. Wraps are literally everywhere in todays busy world of fat graphics and ultimate coverage applying wraps to all different types of vehicles including cars, trucks, trailers, buses and even walls. When you head out to the store, look out for really colorful vehicles that send large format messages to their audiences through fat graphics that stand out from the plain Jane solid color cars passing by. You will be surprised once you start looking for these wraps, how there is not one errand you’ll run without seeing a handful of vehicle wraps passing by.
Why are business owners turning to vehicle wraps?
There vehicles have an obligation to transport either products, passengers, or even employees to various job sites each day they want to continue to stay in business. Why not stand out in this process, extending thousands of impressions to potential new clients through a vibrant new vehicle wrap. This opportunity is the ultimate way for you to accelerate finding new leads, and creating opportunity. Lets take a local plumber for example. In this case, we have a smaller operation with one service truck thats newer to the plumbing industry just getting started as their business networks with all of their friends and family to find new plumbing jobs. Imagine in this situation, this outfit has a job at a location where hundreds of locals pass by the location of this job each and every day with an average of 3 days to complete a plumbing project. If there is nothing on this blank white van, then how likely is this plumber going to find new work simultaneously to working on someones toilet for example. If this plumber gets there new van wrapped with a catchy, colorful design, than while that van sits in their customers driveway, each day all those locals pass by, they are taking notice to this new plumbing company and the services their new van wrap is promoting to these people who when you least expect it, also need or know someone that needs to find a plumber to assist them with a new project. This cycle continuously helps local business owners promote and build market share within their companies. Unlike traditional billboards that carry monthly reoccurring bills for you to rent their space, you get to own this mobile billboard that you can totally control when its gathering impressions and where.
A bonus to gathering new leads while on the job is also the impressions you will collect while your van is at the local hardware store picking up supplies, or even as you fill up the gas tank at the local station.
How Much Does A Vehicle Wrap Cost?
Depending on the type of vehicle your looking to get wrapped, the cost does fluctuate to a degree along with the grade of the film you are looking to purchase. To better explain this, lets look at a couple of different examples. First we will look at a Ford Transit Connect, a smaller utility van in comparison to the full size transit. Paired with a high performance wrap and a new design built from one of our creative designers, you would be looking at roughly $2,200.00 before tax without any roof coverage or bumper coverage. This would mean outside of the usually already black textured plastic bumpers (not wrap friendly) or the roof that most of your potential customers would never see anyway, everything else on the vehicle would be completely covered in your new vehicle wrap. For DOT regulations and your own safety, we are not allowed to cover the front driver, passenger or windshield areas of the vehicle. All other glass areas can be covered with an optional perforated window graphic film. Larger vans with a wheelbase around 136’’ holding similar coverage run closer to the $3,200-$4,500.00 range depending on the final size and coverage of that vehicle.
Our second example is calculated on a Ford Focus. Believe it or not, not only will the painted bumpers require coverage to avoid clashing with your new design, but so will the door handles and most likely mirrors and even the roof, as these cars sit much lower to the ground allowing most standing civilians to be able to see the entire car. This ends up adding time and material to the cost of this car wrap, bringing the average cost up to the $2,800.00-$3,400.00 range using a high performance film.
There are alternative films with an intermediate grade performance guarantee for those looking to save money, but you start to sacrifice performance (conformability to compound curves like handles and bumpers) along with age expectancy, as these films typically last half of the lifetime of the high performance vehicle wrap films.
How Long Does A Vehicle Wrap Last?
Before we get into the longevity of the two wrap films we offer, its first important to understand the difference of the two films make up. High performance films are made from a cast vinyl, while intermediate films are made from calendared vinyl. A cast film is made by pouring the PVC based film into a rolling mold, enhanced with plasticizers to improve the films overall conformability. This allows the natural state of the cooled plastic vinyl to be 100% at the start of the production process and final installation process. The advantage promotes itself when you are trying to wrap something like a door, where the low spot in the door handle area requires the film to be moderately stretched into a low point for complete door coverage. Without a cast base film, the vinyl would start to shrink naturally and pop up creating an air pocket, which eventually cracks, collects water/moisture and starts to fail in a complete section on the vehicle wrap. Cast vinyl wraps typically last 3-5 years and can easily surpass 5 years with extra care and maintenance.
Calendared films allow typically a 20-25% savings on the original cost of a high performance vehicle wrap, but these films are made like a pizza. The calendared film is stretched to the size of the raw material roll we then print your graphics on and install your intermediate vehicle wrap with. Not only is this film only rated for 1-2 years, but the failure rate in recessed channels or compound curves on your vehicle is much higher than a traditional high performance vehicle wrap.

Our process is simple:
Complete and return a copy of our design questionnaire. This gives our design team all of the information necessary to begin creating your initial concept for your vehicle wrap. It is important to provide as much detail as possible. Any questions? Don’t be afraid to reach out to our design department. We are here to help!
After you return the completed copy of our design questionnaire, you will consult with one of our designers to discuss your overall project goals for your vehicle wrap. In the meantime, you will wait for your first generation design concept.
Once you approve the design, we then produce a test print for your approval. This serves as a sample of your graphics on the materials you choose for your vehicle wrap. The primary purpose of the test print is to show you exactly how the printed colors appear on your vehicle wrap in the sunlight. In addition, it also allows you to have one last look at the layout, spelling, and graphics quality before your vehicle wrap hits production.
