We’ll take a closer look at your vehicle wrap design, making sure all design components work with your vision as well as your particular year, make and model vehicle.  Our experienced designers will tailor the design to a detailed vehicle template and provide a proof for your approval.

Van Wrap Makeover: Food Services of America

Advertising wrap for Food Services of America in Spokane by Signs for Success.

Nissan Van wrap for Food Services of America

When it comes to updating old vehicle graphics, sometimes it’s hard to get away from the original theme. Whether you’re afraid of stepping on former designers’ toes or just can’t seem to picture your logo or graphics any other way, just getting through the design phase can be the most daunting task of creating a van wrap. When it was time to update Food Services of America’s van fleet, the design team was able to agree on a refreshing new concept for their outdated van wraps, making the change all the easier.

“Our vans had wraps on them before, but they were faded and outdated. We wanted a more updated, splashy look,” Food Services of America’s internal graphic designer Nancy Taylor said. “One of my fellow associates, the brands category manager, along with the beverage team came up with ideas they wanted to see for each side [of the van].” Not only did Nancy create more eye-catching graphics, she came up with a unique, yet cohesive concept for each side of the van wrap.

Signs for Success downloaded the templates for their van makes and models and sent them to Nancy. Once we got the completed design back, with a few minor tweaks that would optimize the installation process, we sent the design to print.

VANS, Van Wrap


The wrap was printed on Avery 1005 conformable wrap film or with 3M High Performance Control Tac Vinyl and laminated with satin laminate. One side of the wrap features succulent fruit and splashes of fruit juice, while the other side pictures coffee beans and smooth pouring coffee. The back of the van features tea leaves, bags, and a refreshing-looking cup of tea.

Each side represents a different product, but they’re all tied by a single theme – appetizing beverages. The van graphics are characterized by large scale images and bold colors that really make these custom van wraps pop. “People here at the branch who saw it were just beyond thrilled,” Nancy said. “The comment I heard a lot was ‘I liked the wraps on the last van, but this is completely over the top!'”

All of the van wrap vinyl was printed and installed here at Signs for Success. Managers from Food Services of America were so excited about the wraps, they stopped by periodically during the installation to see the work in progress. The wraps were showcased at the FSA Show May 9, 2012, and they will be used locally in Spokane and in the Moses Lake area.

Van wraps are quite successful marketing tools because they cover so much area (a van is a large vehicle), and they get lots of attention on and off the road. Vehicle wraps generate up to 70,000 impressions per day; in fact, according to the American Advertising Association, 98% of people driving notice vehicle graphics on the road. Refreshing old van graphics is a smart investment since modern vehicle graphics give a professional, successful business vibe. Vehicle wraps get noticed, and you want to give a good impression!

Whether you’re coming up with a new design or you’re updating existing graphics, the Signs for Success experienced design team can offer a fresh set of eyes to help work on a refreshing concept, theme or design. We will make sure your van or fleet hits the road in style with a custom vehicle wrap! Contact us for a free quote!

Vehicle wraps generate leads and drive sales (no pun intended). Driving his Little Caesar’s Step Van with a brand new van wrap, Brandt Williams of Little Caesar’s Hillyard noticed he was drawing quite a response from other drivers around him. “Just on the drive from your store to my store, there were so many people honking at us,” Brandt said. The Signs for Success Production Manager was driving with her son this week when they saw the Little Caesars van. “My son was ecstatic. He was like, “Whoa, look at that!” We took a picture.” In its first week, the van wraps even brought in a new customer when someone saw it parked and called to ask about catering for a party.

Here’s what goes into a custom vehicle wrap by Signs for Success:

First, we take the type of vehicle into consideration. We take pictures of the vehicle and take measurements of doors, sides, windows, hood, front, back – whatever the vehicle wrap might touch. In the design phase, we take any graphics, text, or ideas the customer has and create a custom wrap design that can be applied to a three-dimensional diagram of the vehicle. The customer receives a proof, and minor adjustments may be made. Following customer approval, the design goes to print.

In the printing stage, files are double checked for consistency. The machine is loaded, and our Onyx software splits the file into several panels for printing. The Little Caesar’s van wrap required 14 different panels. The panels are then laminated and set aside in order to be installed.

We install most vehicle wraps, whether it’s a car wrap, truck wrap or even boat wrap, right here in our facility. First, the vehicle is prepped by removing any features that will inhibit installation. For this particular job, mirrors, windshield wipers, rear lights, license plates, ladder, electrical outlet covers, door stoppers, awning arms, emblems, and rear door latches all had to be removed. The vinyl is then installed on the clean vehicle starting from the back of one side and moving up, which ensures the longest life of the vinyl wrap.

Installation takes several hours as the vinyl is carefully placed and smoothed, and fine cuts are made around lights, door handles, and any other features on the vehicle. Our installers are Avery Car Wrap Certified, so they are trained to be both precise and efficient with each installation. With the vinyl in place, it is heated to 160 degrees Fahrenheit and smoothed once more. As it cools, it retains its permanent shape and position. The end result is a seamless, professional vehicle wrap.

The van wrap design took into account all the unique features of the step van, and the eye-popping color definitely garners attention on and off the road. “It pops; it’s an attention-grabber – that’s the biggest thing,” Brandt said when he saw the van wraps for the first time. “You guys did a fabulous job.”
