Full & Partial Vehicle Wraps
Custom vehicle wraps are used to display text and images, completely transforming the appearance of a car, truck, van or trailer. They are most often used for commercial purposes, as a means of converting vehicles into mobile advertisements.
How much does it cost to wrap a vehicle?
The price of an auto wrap depends on a number of factors, like the type of vehicle and the size of the wrap. If you’re looking to transform a vehicle into an eye-catching marketing asset, get in touch with us to discuss your ideas and receive a quote for our services.
What is a vehicle wrap?
A vehicle wrap is essentially a sign that overlays a car, truck, van or trailer. Wraps are similar to auto decals, but with one major distinction. Whereas different decals are applied as individual stickers, an auto wrap is a single piece of vinyl that is stretched over a significant, or the entire portion of the vehicle.
Auto wraps are primarily used for the same purpose as auto stickers – advertising. But because they are a single sheet of vinyl, and are generally larger, they permit a more detailed design. As a result, vehicle wraps are usually the most noticeable auto graphics a company can use.
Types of vehicle wraps
The appearance of a vehicle wrap depends on its design. Wraps are essentially large images so the variation between them is virtually unlimited. But beyond the content of the image itself, there are two main types of auto wraps: partial wraps and full wraps.
Partial vehicle wraps
As the name suggests, this type of auto wrap covers only part of a vehicle, albeit a significant portion. Whereas an auto decal might span the driver’s side door, a partial auto wrap may cover the entire back half of a vehicle, including the passenger and rear windows. You can get a sense of the size and style of partial vehicle wraps by viewing the examples below.
Full vehicle wraps
Full vehicle wraps completely cover a vehicle. This allows them to display extensive images and fonts – especially if you have a large vehicle, like a commercial trailer. But otherwise, full vehicle wraps are exactly like partial wraps; one piece of vinyl stretched over the exterior or the vehicle, which may include the side and back windows. Take a look at some examples of fully wrapped vehicles here.
The benefits of auto wraps
Auto wraps generally provide the same benefits as other types of vehicle signs. Primarily, they’re great for brand exposure. For a one-time fee (the cost of designing, printing and applying) you can advertise your business in perpetuity. Each time someone passes your wrapped vehicle on the road, they’ll see your company name, logo and information. And like other types of auto signs, vehicle wraps are durable and long-lasting.
But car wraps provide additional benefits that auto stickers can’t. For instance, because they cover a large portion (or all) of your vehicle, auto wraps open more space to promote your business. This makes them the ideal choice for displaying images that are more complex than your logo.
Additionally, vehicle wraps seamlessly span doors and windows without obstructing mobility or hampering your view. This permits even further artistic license during the design phase. There truly are very few limitations to what an auto wrap can display.
Who uses auto wraps?
Any business can benefit from a full or partial auto wrap, especially those that regularly have vehicles on the road. This is doubly true for companies that sell products or provide services they wish to convey visually, since vehicle wraps are great from portraying complex and detailed images.
Companies that that do on-site work – e.g. landscapers, plumbers, etc. – also glean additional benefits. For example, if your wrapped vehicle is sitting in a driveway, telling all the neighbours what a great roofer you are, those neighbours are likely to remember you when it’s time to redo their own roofs.
But vehicle wraps aren’t only for business use. If you want to customize the appearance of a personal vehicle with some racing stripes or cool images, a car wrap is a great option.
