Promote Your Nonprofit with Trailer Graphics!

Nonprofits walk a thin line between marketing enough to attract donors and volunteers and not making it look like they’re putting all of their money into advertising. One marketing tool that lives along this thin line is vehicle graphics. They’re both affordable and one of the most effective ways to build name recognition. That’s why Bike Clark County decided to shift into a higher gear by contacting Special Graphic Solutions for trailer graphics for nonprofits in Vancouver, WA.

Bike Clark County Is on a Roll

Located on Broadway in Vancouver, Bike Clark County was founded in 2011 with the idea that adults can use their bikes as a viable mode of transportation, families can safely enjoy a ride together on our local trails and streets, and kids should be outside riding their bikes. From this vision, they started an organization that’s run and organized by a volunteer board of directors, who believe in promoting cycling throughout the county. They’ve been successful thanks to the many volunteers and donors who’ve offered their time and money.

When a nonprofit that’s doing so much to keep the area healthy, sustainable, and safe came to us for trailer graphics for Vancouver, WA, we put on our helmets and tight shorts and got down to work! One of the Bike Clark County board members had seen our wrapped van travelling around town (SEE! Vehicle graphics really do work!), and he called to see if we could give his group’s cargo trailer the same treatment. As you can see, we did so quite successfully.

We Worked Tirelessly

Bike Clark County needed us to work on a fairly tight schedule. The holiday season is an important time of year for them for bike donations and fundraising. They’d need the trailer available to show off their graphics and branding at events. We sent our mighty sign maker Taylor to their downtown storage facility where he measured the trailer and checked out its design.

We then worked with them on a logo mock up that would allow for a larger version of their branding and would take advantage of the great canvas the trailer afforded. Once they were happy with the design, we printed the graphics out on standard vinyl and laminate rather than a more expensive “wrap” material in order to save them money. This was possible because the trailer only had limited rivets and was smooth for the most part. There was no need to overspend on materials that were going to be applied to a simple flat surface when the standard vinyl will hold up just fine for a long time.

Now, Bike Clark County has two six-foot-wide signs on both sides of the trailer and a five-foot-tall sign on the back. When they ‘e on the road, their logo is always visible and grabbing attention. In the end, the client was completely satisfied.

These Tear Drop Trailer Graphics will Make You Smile!

By | Trailer Graphics | No Comments

Anyone else notice that winter seemed to give up early this year? We’re sure no one is shedding any tears over the early arrival of spring. Instead, area wanderlusts are taking their Tear Drops and other RVs out of storage to explore the Pacific Northwest. One local astronomy enthusiast decided he wanted to do his star gazing in style this year, so he enlisted the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions for Tear Drop trailer graphics Vancouver WA residents are sure to notice.

What Are Tear Drop Trailers?

In all likelihood, you’ve seen Tear Drop trailers if you’ve done any traveling outside of your atmosphere. They are sleek sleepers that have all you could need when camping in a nice compact trailer. They can be custom built to fit your needs, whether you like roughing it or being pampered when you explore new frontiers.

Our astronomer client uses his Tear Drop for weekend trips with friends to get away from the city lights that can drown out the stars, planets, and other astronomical features. One cool feature of his trailer was that it has a nice mini-kitchen that folds out of the back.

What We Did

Our astronomer friend came to us with a rough sketch of the design he wanted. Our experts were able to convert the sketch to a vector file that could easily be blown up to astronomical proportions to cover the back of the Tear Drop. As you can see, the sides of the trailer are painted blue. To complement this, we perfectly matched the blue in our artistic rendering. Kindra, our “Jill of All Trades,” had the brilliant idea of using the brushed silver surface of the trailer as the “reflection” for the moon on the lake in the graphic.

Once our customer approved of the proof, we got down to work rendering it on 3M iJ480 Envision film, which is a heavy duty and eco-friendly vinyl that we like to use. We matched it with 3M protective laminate to reduce the chance of scratching or fading. We then cut it to be just right. And, as you can see, Jason went about the task of installing it pristinely.

In the end, the astronomer had new meaningful trailer graphics that are out of this world. And, we had another satisfied customer!

Make a Statement with RV Graphics

We’ve found that one of the great rewards of traveling is getting to know the local people. A smart way to invite folks to strike up a conversation with you is with interesting RV graphics. Vancouver, WA businesses can also benefit from trailer graphics. As you’re lugging all of your work equipment and supplies around, a trailer wrap can serve as a giant billboard, only you don’t have to pay a monthly advertising fee and young scofflaws, ne’er-do-wells, and hooligans won’t spray paint inappropriate things on it (hopefully!)

If you’re ready to update your RV or trailer with memorable graphics, contact SGS for a free quote or consultation. We are sure to eclipse your expectations!
