Tips for Designing a Custom Car Wrap

Tips for Designing a Custom Car Wrap brand it wrap it

Designing a customized car wrap can be challenging because of the many design elements involved.

Do you want to create a unique and eye-catching advertising campaign? If so, consider investing in a custom car wrap. A well-designed vehicle wrap can set you apart from your competition while generating more leads. However, designing a customized car wrap can be challenging because of the many design elements that go into it. For that reason, our team here at Brand It Wrap It has compiled a list of tips for designing a custom car wrap. Here is what you should know about creating a commercial vehicle wrap. 

Use Existing Vehicle Wraps as An Example 

You can use existing vehicle wraps as inspiration. If you already have an idea, you can look at other car wrap designs to give your concept depth and dimension. Also, you’ll have a guide on how much space you’ll need to bring your idea to life. However, if you’re still unsure which direction to go, browsing through finished car wraps will give you a range of concepts to help spark your creativity. Then, of course, you can always count on our team at Brand It Wrap It to assist you. 

Create a Custom Car Wrap Based on Vehicle Size

Not all vehicles are the same. Some cars, trucks, and vans are wider or taller than others or have unique curves and angles. It’s necessary to consider these differences when planning your custom car wrap. For example, if your car is wide, it’s best to use a wider vinyl wrap to avoid unsightly seams. On the other hand, if your vehicle has a lot of curves, a textured vinyl wrap will add visual interest and depth to the car. 

Ensure That All Designs Elements Are Purposeful

All design elements should be impactful and serve a purpose. Each aspect should add value and communicate a message about your brand identity. All design elements being purposeful means avoiding busy designs with competing features or structures that are hard to read. 

Minimize Text

It’s also best to avoid a lot of text. Although adding text is an excellent way to convey information or advertise your business, too much text can be jarring to the senses. It can also detract from the overall beauty of your commercial vehicle wrap. We suggest using simplistic fonts and colors to keep your design clean and not overwhelming. Limit your text to vital features, including the following: 

  • Company Name
  • Tagline/Slogan
  • Contact Information 
  • Call to Action 
  • Services Offered (in small print) 
  • Locations Served 

Use Legible Text

A design is only as great as someone’s ability to read it. People should be able to read your custom car wrap. Also, being wise about color is important because you don’t want to compel fellow drivers but not distract them. It’s best to use bold fonts and clear letters while avoiding too many colors and clutter. 

Use Graphics

If you have an attractive selling point, such as free shipping, you can use text, a bold color, and a graphic to highlight this. You could use an image of a truck zooming by or a picture of a box to represent this. Whatever you decide, use images sparingly so as not to distract the reader.
