What's the difference between a partial and a full wrap?

Typically, a full wrap covers all the painted surfaces of the vehicle excluding the roof on most larger vehicles where it is not visible from the ground. Anything less than a full wrap is normally called a "partial wrap." A half wrap normally includes the entire rear, halfway up the sides of vehicle, and a hood logo. A three-quarter wrap normally includes the entire rear, the sides of the vehicle up to the front of the doors, and a hood logo.

It has become a universally accepted fact that car and truck wraps offer the best “return on investment” with the highest market penetration and viewer recall possible in all of advertising. A recent study shows that 91% of people notice words and graphics when displayed on trucks, cars, and vans. You may already be aware that vehicle wraps advertising ranks highest among the many types of outdoor advertising mediums available.

Why not start promoting your business, services, or products by branding your fleet vehicles today? Did you know that vehicles in an average city are seen by 14 million sets of eyes each year? Vehicle wraps get signage into places that are normally off limits. You can park a wrapped vehicle just about anywhere and get a ton of advertising. With a fleet wrap, car wrap, or truck wrap, you’ll have more marketing exposure than with one costly billboard. As far as the visual impressions and name recognition go, 3M a vinyl manufacturer has shown a company would have to spend $130,000 in advertising dollars to get the same visual effect as one vehicle wrap. The American Trucking Association states that a wrapped vehicle can garner between 30,000 to 70,000 visual impressions per day and if you have three fleet or franchise vehicle wraps, you can do the math here! Consider vehicle wrap advertising as they become a 24/7 moving billboard advertisement announcing your business, products, and services helping to build brand recognition and identity.

Who said installing vehicle wraps and graphics was easy? We once heard a client say “can you guys just run over today and put those big stickers on”?

Cost varies from vehicle to vehicle. There are several things to consider: design time, materials , print, and installation. The size of the vehicle to be wrapped and the type of vehicle also play a part in cost. In general, vehicles with compound curves and channels, such as a Sprinter Van or PT Cruiser, are more difficult and more expensive to wrap than a vehicle with more angular contours. Partial wraps are a great way to minimize cost as opposed to a full wrap. Cast (High performance) vinyl is more expensive then Calendared (Intermediate) vinyl but lasts longer, so be sure to ask for details. If you are using a vehicle wrap there is no more cost-effective advertising method available. It has been proven that the cost per impression of vehicle wraps is far less than other forms of advertising such as billboards, television, radio and direct mail. If you are using your vehicle wrap to improve the appearance of your vehicle, digitally printed vehicle wraps simply can not be duplicated by more traditional methods like paint or airbrushing.

Can I see through vinyl on the windows?

You can see through window graphics that are printed on perforated window material. This material is perforated with very small holes that allow you to see out. From inside the vehicle, visibility is similar. For safety reasons the front windshield and the front driver and passenger windows cannot have vinyl graphics. Normally the rear window and the rear passenger windows on both sides can be covered with perforated window film.
