When utilized correctly, car wraps are a great way to advertise your business, boost brand awareness, and increase sales. However, if you have never had a vehicle wrapped before, it is common to make mistakes that can affect your vehicle wrap. For example, you want to research before deciding on an installer to design your wrap. Let’s go over some dos and don’ts about the car wrapping process.
Do: Opt for a Vinyl Wrap
Vinyl may be more on the expensive side, but it has some properties that make it the optimal material. It is strong and long-lasting, up to five years in some cases. Vinyl stretches easily, adhering to the vehicle’s surfaces. Your wrap professional can easily cover every curve of your car. In addition, printing on vinyl makes it easy to match your car’s paint. Vinyl wraps hold on to their colors longer and will make any design pop.
Do: Choose a Bold Design
If your vehicle will be driving around most of the time, it is a good idea to choose a bold graphic design to guarantee your message is clear. This also ensures people will notice your design from miles away. Consider adding complimenting colors and attractive fonts to catch the eye of potential customers and get them talking about your business.
Do: Include Your Contact Information
This may seem obvious, but some people forget to include this important information. Your bold, eye-catching design won’t do any good if people do not know how to contact you. It is essential to include your phone number and website address at a minimum. If you have the space, consider including your business’s physical address and tagline.
Don’t: Forget to Maintain Your Wrap
Vinyl wraps can last for years, but only if you take proper care of them. Mild detergents and hand washing are the best things for your car wrap. If you have window graphics installed, don’t take a scraper to the window as it can damage the window wrap.
Don’t: Rush the Process
You want to make sure that you are working with a reputable vehicle wrap company that understands what they are doing throughout the entire process. Be sure to do some research on a few wrap businesses to find out their experience and know what you are getting into before purchasing anything.
