Vehicle Wrap - Connecting Signs

How to Increase Brand Awareness with a Vehicle Wrap

Vehicle wraps for brand awareness

Vehicle wraps are a unique and interesting way to showcase your brand, elevate your company’s prestige, and increase your brand’s awareness. Vehicle wraps, generally, have the same benefits that billboard advertising does, however, there are some major differences that sets them apart from standard billboard advertising. A vehicle wrap that is intentionally designed with thought-out placement of graphics and professionally installed can generate tons buzz and awareness about your brand. With standard billboard advertising, there are placement restrictions and no guarantee that your advertisement will be noticed. A vehicle wrap allows your ad to be seen by thousands on the road with no permitting or placement restrictions. Understanding your target audience is important and with a branded vehicle you can park in a strategic location to ensure that the intended audience is seeing your brand. A well-kept vehicle wrap can last for years and are easily removed when you want to re-brand your vehicle.

Designing a Vehicle Wrap

Creating an effective vehicle wrap design can be challenging. To start, you need to make sure that you are using an accurate template to design from and that all the graphics in the vehicle wrap design on the computer are high-resolution or, even better, vector-based. A simple, clean design is usually the most effective way to make a lasting impression. Minimizing the amount of copy and call-to-actions is also important when you’re designing a commercial vehicle wrap. Only feature the most important message because the vehicle wrap will be viewed very quickly, and a busy design will not be read or noticed!

Printing and Installing a Vehicle Wrap

The next important phases of a vehicle wrap project are the printing and installation phases. If you’re taking this project on all by yourself and you’re new to vehicle wraps, it might be a good idea to partner with a credible sign company to ensure that your vehicle wrap is printed and laminated correctly. Locating an experienced installer will also save you lots of frustrations and re-prints. The wrap installation process can take up to three days, longer depending on how detailed you want your vehicle wrap to be. Properly caring for your newly branded vehicle is also important and ongoing. A maintained vehicle wrap can provide years of effective, impressionable advertising!

Vehicle wraps are perfect for advertising because they are versatile, cost efficient and they stand out!

If you do choose to wrap your vehicle to advertise your services, there are some important things to consider. Know that there are some limitations and if you expect your wrap to look like a piece of art, expect to pay for a piece of art. Each vehicle is different and each wrap job is unique. A graphic designer will work with you very closely to finalize the design of your wrap. A graphic designer with experience in designing vehicle wraps will be honest with you and listen to any concern you might have.

Elements of an Effective Business Storefront

An effective storefront is one that utilizes many kinds of signage. These business signs (indoor signs and outdoor signs) engage customers and attracts new customers. It is so important to appeal to your customers and meet their needs. You will also want to stand out among your competition. There are many things that you must consider when mapping out your signage structure. Here’s an example of effective storefront signs for your business.

Pre-Opening Signs

If your business is being built from the ground up, you will want to inform the public of what is happening as well as information about when you’re opening. You can also take this opportunity to inform your potential customers about the services you offer. Vinyl banners or mesh fence banners are useful in this instance because they are made to be temporary and cost-effective.

Outdoor Building Signs

Next up, you will want to get permanent building signs mapped out and planned. This includes the design and attaining the required permits from the town or city offices. Monument signs provide great visibility from the road. If you’re located in a business park, your property management company should already have a monument sign by a nearby road that has multiple tenant panels. For your building sign, it’s a good idea to consider investing in dimensional letters. Backlit dimensional letters or an internally lit channel box are great options.

Window Graphics & Indoor Signs

The following signs are also very important to your business. Window graphics, in the form of cut vinyl, applied to the front door are great opportunities to inform your customers of your business hours as well as a helpful identifier of your location. This is especially true if you share a space with other businesses. Indoor signs, like lobby signs or wall graphics are also effective tools to enforce your brand. Menu boards are also a form of indoor signage that we can design and manufacture. If you’ve ever been out to eat, you know how important a well-designed menu is!

Vehicle Wraps & Vehicle Graphics

Partial Truck Wrap

Finally, if you want to reach out to your customer base even further, you should seriously consider getting graphics on your company vehicle. Vehicle graphics, box truck graphics and trailer graphics are always very customized; no two projects are the same! With digitally printed graphics you can have your full color logo printed or you can choose from a variety of colors and finishes in ready-to-cut cut vinyl. Vehicle graphics stand out as one of the best methods for advertising. A full wrap may be pricey, but the return on that investment is one that you cannot pass up!

Radio Station Custom Vehicle Wrap

Recently, a local radio station in Northern Colorado came to us to help them re-design their 2015 Nissan Pathfinder to reflect their new branded logo. We were lucky enough to work with them on their first wrap. They changed their logo quite a bit to reflect their new sound. We wanted to help them keep to their budget as well, so this new wrap needed to be a custom partial vehicle wrap.

The color scheme to be used in the wrap was changed to a simple blue, and red based design. We decided to design this with the logo in mind. It’s highlighted by the angled lines with the blue and red sampled from the darkest blues and darkest reds. The website address and corporate logos also needed to be clearly shown on the wrap. We also installed perforated window vinyl on the side and rear windows for additional coverage. But, the best part about perforated vinyl is that you can see out of it from inside the vehicle.

Even custom partial vehicle wraps can be versatile and can increase your visibility to your audience. You can also think of vehicle wraps as a moving billboard! If you are on the road, driving your company van or truck around, you can take all those views you’re getting on the highway or parked as a way to engage potential customers. Small businesses can benefit greatly from vehicle wraps, especially if your business is new in town. The cost saved by shifting your marketing budget to include a vehicle wrap or vehicle graphics (like side door decals, or rear window graphics) is great after you look at the cost of an actual billboard.
