Van Graphics for Mobile Service Businesses in Vancouver WA!

By | Van Graphics, Vehicle Graphics, Vehicle Vinyl Logos | No Comments

We’re not here to shame anyone, but there are virtually no situations where it’s okay to be naked in public. The only exception we can think of is if you’re a bear trying to steal picnic baskets. And, even then, you should have a hat and tie on. So, why do businesses let their company vehicles go around naked as the day they left the manufacturing plant? When you tastefully clothe your work trucks you promote your business while you drive. Craftworx realized this. That’s why they contacted Specialty Graphic Solutions for Ford Transit Connect van graphics in Vancouver, WA.

The Lowdown on Craftworx

No, Craftworx isn’t a ‘70s German electronic music band. It’s a mobile marine service company run by Nick Orr. They’re a fairly new enterprise and don’t have an online presence yet, so they rely heavily on word of mouth to attract customers who need help with fixing their boats and other nautical machinery.

When a business that does so much to keep local captains afloat came to us for van graphics for mobile service businesses in Vancouver, WA, we had to say, “Aye aye!” Without an Internet presence or physical location, Craftworx needed a way to attract new clients. They regularly traveled to job sites in their Ford Transit Connect van and figured the van could help get the word out. Fortunately, they contacted the right mighty sign makers!

We Went to Work for Craftworx

Our process is pretty simple. We first scheduled a time for Nick to bring his van around to SGS, so we could get a good look at it, take measurements, and do a little photo shoot. The van had camera skills that would impress Tyra Banks. We then got a vector version of Craftworx’s new logo from Nick. We had everything we needed to do an awesome job.

We first created a basic, professional design incorporating all of the info Craftworx wanted: their logo, phone number, and email address. Next, we cut and prepped the graphics in our shop. We then scheduled a time when Nick could drop his van off for a few hours. When he got back, his mobile advertisement was ready for the roads. Now, instead of a naked van, he’s exposing his brand using van graphics.

Why You Should Consider Vehicle Graphics

The best thing about these graphics is that they work for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week for several years. For example, let’s make a conservative estimate that your graphics last for three years (most last much longer than that). If you spend $500 for your vehicle graphics, that means you’ll have spent less than 50 cents per day over the lifespan of the graphics. That’s less than the change you scrape together from your car’s dashboard to pay for half an hour of parking at a meter downtown.

It’s Dodge RAM Sprinter Fleet Graphics for Technology Unlimited Inc.

By | Fleet Graphics | No Comments

Imagine this scenario: you’re sitting at work and an unmarked van pulls up. You don’t recognize the driver or the vehicle, and you don’t receive a lot of drop-in clients at your office. What’s this person up to? Do you need to call 9-1-1? This is the kind of fear you could potentially cause in your more paranoid clients if you arrive at jobsites in vehicles lacking any sort of identification. TUI realized this, so they contacted the pros at Specialty Graphic Solutions for Dodge RAM Sprinter fleet graphics for Vancouver, WA.

Huey, Dewey, and TUI?

No, TUI isn’t one of Donald Duck’s long-lost nephews. It stands for Technology Unlimited, Inc. They started in 1983 as an equipment and maintenance provider for the financial services industry in the Pacific Northwest. Since then, they’ve expanded to serve all of the Western United States with services like service bureau production scanning, remittance processing, check processing, branch automation, document management, cash automation, and financial maintenance, supplies, and equipment.

When a successful business that provides such important services for the region’s businesses came to us for fleet van graphics for Vancouver, WA, we got to work on decals that would be right on the money. This wasn’t our first job for the TUI’s Vancouver location on Northeast 13th Avenue. Almost exactly a year ago, we produced graphics for one of their Dodge RAM Sprinters. They knew they could count on us to produce again.

How We Helped TUI Out

First, let’s tell you about the first van we did for TUI. The van was a light silver, so we used an Oracal intermediate vinyl in dark gray and an Avery intermediate vinyl in fire red to reproduce their logo in simple, eye-catching graphics. You can even see our own mighty sign maker Jason in the driver’s seat of the first van. Hi, Jason!

TUI wanted the second van to look essentially the same. The easy part of doing this was that we always keep designs on file for these occasions. The problem was the new Sprinter is dark gray. Dark gray doesn’t tend to work well on dark gray. It comes out as a solid dark gray. Consequently, we switched to a slate gray by Avery for the name and the same fire red for the logo. In the end, this provided great branding for a company that continues to grow.

Vinyl Lettering and Spot Graphics Don’t Break the Bank

Nothing garners more attention than full vehicle wraps. But, we’re going to be honest with you: they can be cost prohibitive for small businesses that want to put graphics on a whole fleet of vehicles. The solution that’s easier on the checkbook is vinyl lettering and decals. Truck lettering comes in a broad range of styles and colors and is the ideal way to put your name and contact information on all of your vans. Spot graphics or decals are perfect for logos and to show off your best-selling products or handiwork.
