What are Vehicle Decals?
So you want to advertise your brand on your vehicle but have a very small budget. That’s when decals come in handy. Decals are basically stickers made of high quality cast vinyl such as 3M laminated with high quality cast laminate. They last just as long as vinyl wrap does but have a much smaller coverage. Usually decals are put on the sides of the vehicle, doors and the rear. They are an effective budget friendly way to advertise your logo, phone number or any other relevant information. Decals and vehicle graphics take less time to install because usually thy are installed on flat surfaces.

What is a Partial Car Wrap?
Partial wrap is a vinyl wrap that covers only a portion of a car, van, truck, trailer or any other vehicle. Vinyl wrap coverage can be from minimal to most of the vehicle. This is usually done to lower the cost of getting a car wrap, however sometimes well designed car wrap will intentionally use a partial wrap and incorporate the original color of the vehicle. Partial wraps are a great option for companies or individuals looking to get a step up from vehicle decals but their budget may not allow a costlier option such as a full vehicle wrap. Companies usually have the rear part of their car, van, truck or trailer partially wrapped. Partial wraps definitely will get more attention than vehicle decals. However certain people may feel like partial wraps look “unfinished” and can afford the cost of a full car wrap.
What is a Full Car Wrap?
Full wrap for a car, van, truck, trailer or any other vehicle means that all body panels of the vehicle such as sides, read, hood and roof are wrapped with vinyl. Depending on the regional laws and regulations windows can be wrapped with perforated window vinyl. Some larger vehicles such as trucks, trailers and vans do not usually get their roof wrapped in vinyl. Fully wrapped car is eye catching and stands out from other vehicles. It is one of the most effective ways to deliver your message and advertise your brand.

Curves and Complexity of a Vehicle
Wrapping a car, van, truck, trailer or any other vehicle is an art of itself. Unlike painting however you do not get a canvas so to speak. Most vehicles have a certain areas that are not flat but rather curved or convex. You also have to deal with small details such as door handles, antennas, lights and car emblems. These provide a challenge to getting a good wrap. It is important to know your “canvas” before you begin the art of wrapping.
A box truck that is 15′ long may take less time to wrap than a Volkswagen Golf. A box truck may have a larger area but it is mainly flat and doesn’t have all the curves and complexities of the smaller vehicle. Quite a bit of small parts need to be taken out to wrap a smaller car such as Volkswagen Golf.
Trained and certified installer will the experience, knowledge, skills and tools to properly remove those parts and put them back without damaging your vehicle.
The complexity of your vehicle has more impact on the cost of vinyl wrapping your car, van, truck, trailer than most people think. It is often overlooked and can be surprising. Make sure that those details are taken into consideration when you get a pricing quote for vehicle vinyl wrap.

Is Vehicle Vinyl Wrap Worth It?
Now that we have shown you main components that can drive the cost of a vehicle wrap up or down you may be wondering is it even worth getting a vehicle wrap?
There are many benefits you gain from wrapping you vehicle regardless of the cost of the wrap. Number one benefit is obviously a layer of protection vinyl wrap adds to your car’s paint. Any road hazards that may scratch your paint will go directly on the wrap vinyl and laminate. When you are ready to move on you can have the vinyl wrap removed and your car’s paint will be like it was before the wrap. A full wrap for a vehicle is usually a lot less than getting a full paint job.
A full wrap can get you colors and graphics that are hard to achieve via a paint job and therefore your vehicle will stand out from other vehicles. This is a great way to promote your message or brand.
According to Out of Home Advertising Association of America (OAAA) fleet vehicle advertising boost name recognition 15 times greater than any other form of advertising. That means you get the most ROI (Return on Investment) from fleet wrap advertising than billboards, commercials or any other ads.
Let’s do the real quick math. Say, an ad in Yellow Pages or billboards cost approximately $3,000 per month. You decide to spend that sum of money on a full vehicle wrap once. Your company exposure from vehicle wrap advertisement gives you 24-hour exposure every day, 365 days per year with an average life of a vehicle being 5 years in use. In 5 years, it would cost you about $0.07 an hour to advertise your business with a car vinyl wrap. ($3,000 divided by 5 years divided by 365 days divided by 24 hours) On average your wrapped vehicle gets about 30,000 – 70,000 daily impressions, which is about 1,250 to 2,917 impressions an hour. That means you would be paying less than $0.00007 per impression. That is pretty good for advertising. Once again this could be one of the cheapest ways to advertise your brand or message. Think of the benefits of this advertising rather than the pricing of a vehicle vinyl wrap. Car vinyl wraps are literally moving your brand forward everyday whether your vehicle is on the road or parked.
