How Long Does a Car Wrap Last

By | Vehicle Wrap

This post talks about how to make a car wrap last.  With a vehicle wrap, it is important to have professionals installing the graphics. It might seem easy slapping down one giant sticker but there’s a lot that goes into getting a flawless and professional finish. The team at SGS uses the best vinyls that are specifically made for vehicles. It is tempting to cut out some steps and do it yourself but you run the risk of counterfeit products which don’t perform the same.

 This full wrap is sure to get noticed on the road or in a parking lot. This full wrap is sure to get noticed on the road or in a parking lot.

There’s a lot of factors that impact how many years you’ll get out of your vehicle wrap. But the most common range is three to five years. That’s pretty fantastic for essentially a mobile billboard for your brand. Even better, no need to get sign permits for a vehicle wrap!

As we’ve covered in Getting the Most Miles Out of Your Vehicle Wrap post, protection is important. If available, park your vehicle in a covered space to minimize weather. This is especially crucial if you live somewhere prone to a lot of snow storms and cold snaps.

Treat your ride right with frequent hand washing with mild soap and warm water to clean off any grime or dirt. It is tempting to go for the drive-thru car washes or power nozzles but the force and pressure can cause the vinyl to lift away.

When you’re ready for a new look or need to update information on the wrap – contact the SGS team because we’ll make sure it is done right. We’ve got the training and tools to remove the wraps and keep your ride looking right.

Vehicle Graphics for a “Kick-Ash” Company

By | Vehicle Graphics, Vehicle Vinyl Lettering

Sometimes all you need to do to get noticed is to update your image. Whether it’s your wardrobe, your furniture or the fading decals on your company vehicle, making sure that you present yourself in the best light means keeping things looking fresh. When Adam Brown, owner of Top to Bottom Chimney Specialist in Vancouver Wash., needed to update the vehicle graphics on the windows of his Chevy Yukon, he called the Mighty Sign Makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions.

Adam already knew that vehicle graphics can make a major difference to your business, but it was time for an update. With a tagline as good as “We Kick Ash!” going on the windows, SGS knew we had to make Adam’s Chevy as awesome as we could.

Brand New Look

Instead of remaking the exact look of Adam’s original graphics, our expert team of graphic designers worked on new designs. After discussing things with Adam, our team printed a logo and text for the back three windows of Adam’s Yukon. Adam wanted red colored graphics and decided on a color gradient, which our digital printer renders perfectly for a richer and more noticeable result that was sure to turn heads of potential clients.

What We Did

Adam brought his Yukon over to the SGS headquarters and we had a look at what we were working with. First, we had to remove the old graphics from Adam’s windows. We needed to make sure that the new graphics looked as good as we could make them and bits of old decals would have looked pretty bad. After we removed the old graphics and the new designs were approved, cut and printed our professional team installed them at the SGS facilities.

With the name of the business, phone number and the big selling-point of senior and veteran discounts on the back of his SUV, wherever Adam goes in his Yukon, anyone and everyone will know that Top to Bottom Chimney Specialist “kick-ash”.

Things to Avoid With Vehicle Lettering and Logos

By | Vehicle Graphics, Vehicle Vinyl Lettering, Vehicle Vinyl Logos

Vehicle graphics are pretty awesome. They do a lot of work for your business at an affordable price and they’re always building you brand on the road, at job sites and in your parking lot. If you use vehicles in your business, it just makes sense to invest in these products. Vehicle letters and logos are one of the simpler types of vehicle graphic options that we offer at SGS. But that doesn’t mean they’re not some of the best signage out there. These graphics can convey any message you need, but there are some rules you should stick to with vehicle lettering and logos. Here is some mighty advice from the Mighty Sign Makers on what not to do with your vehicle lettering and logos:

Teeny-Tiny Letters and Images

There’s a reason road signs have big lettering. Anyone passing by must be able to read the message on them comfortably. The same goes for your vehicle graphics. Don’t cause a fender bender as people struggle to read the information on your vehicle.  You need graphics of a certain size. Large enough to be read at a distance and while on the move, but also small enough to fit on your vehicle. In other words, you need mighty lettering and logos to get noticed by your target audience without causing a traffic accident.

Bad Placement

The size and shape of some vehicles can be very different. If you have a lot of curves and slants on the back of your vehicle, this may not be the best place to put your most important information. If you put your name and number on a harshly slanted rear window, it’s prime target will be helicopters and passing birds. That’s why you need a professional team like the Mighty Sign Makers to help you find the perfect place to put your contact information and name.

Way Too Much Information

Writing a whole paragraph about your business and your ideals on the back of your truck or van is not going to have a positive effect on your business. Unless you operate a food truck and want to put your menu on your vehicle, keeping the information in your graphics to the bare minimum is important to get the most out of your mobile billboard. People can’t stop and read your company’s history on the side of your van while doing 65 on the highway. What they can do is read your name, get a good look at your logo and read that you specialize in a certain service. It’s best to say a lot with a little when it comes to vehicle graphics. Too much information on your vehicles leads to distracted driving.
