Vehicle Decals – A Great Choice

When you use a vehicle for company business and you haven’t added any advertising or marketing to it because of the cost of a vehicle wrap, consider vehicle decals! Custom vehicle decals are a great choice and available in many different colors and varieties for lettering and graphics. Vehicle decals come in two main categories: Calendered & Cast. Calendered vinyl (or intermediate) film is intended for long-term use and works great for flat or slightly curved surfaces. Cast vinyl film is manufactured differently than calendered vinyl creating a thinner product that can conform to dramatic vehicle curves and body lines. Both calendered and cast films come in a variety of pre-made colors directly from the manufacturer.

Fleet Vehicle Graphics

When The Feet calls for installation of vehicle decals, it’s never just one vehicle – it’s many!  Recently we got a call to help out with installation of their company graphics on 10 Ford Transits.  The back of our shop has a great parking lot that is perfect for the 10 vehicles.

We like to do things fast here at Connecting Signs, so we tried to get in as many vehicles that the inside of our shop would hold to do the installation.

The vehicle graphics used for The Feet are cut vinyl decals that are applied to the vehicles.  When we do work for The Feet, everyone in the shop helps out because of the amount vehicles they bring in at one time and the process used to create the decal.  Their logo is cut out of 3M premium vinyl royal purple and sunflower yellow and applied by layering the logo on top of each other.  When the purple graphics is laid on top of the yellow, it makes the finished logo as seen below:

The layered logo and text is then applied by using transfer tape.

Their fleet is made up of multiple vehicle types depending on the delivery – getting the work done more efficiently for their customers.  We have installed graphics to Ford Transits, Toyota Corollas and Tacoma, Ford E250s, Ford Focus, Ford Ranger, and a Nissan!

Does your business need a company vehicle for making deliveries like The Feet or do you need multiple vehicles for salespeople, carrying equipment or traveling to construction sites?  If you do decide that fleets will be a value to your business, there are many things to keep in mind like what type of vehicle (van, passenger car), to lease or buy.  Read more here to find out about lots of information for leasing.  Of course, don’t forget about identifying your fleet with a full vehicle wrap, partial vehicle wrap or vehicle decals.  Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Be consistent with your design (wording, graphics, color) on all vehicles
  • Keep it simple
  • State what you do and how you can be contacted (website, phone number)
  • Add your tagline
  • If you add a new vehicle, schedule it for installation of decals or wrap as soon as possible

The Feet’s fleet vehicle graphics does all of these things with their vehicle decals.  Give them a call for delivery service from Casper, Wyoming to Castle Rock, Colorado.  Connecting Signs uses them for many of our deliveries of banners, posters and other signage.  It’s a great partnership!  Give us a call 970-493-0133.  We would love to partner with you and park your fleet in our huge parking lot!
