For a contractor vehicle graphics are a must. Contractors know how important first impressions are, whether it’s at the front door or on the road. The vehicle goes everywhere with a contractor, and it is often the “face” of the company. That’s why advertising on a vehicle is so important, and it can give small contractors a huge marketing boost within the industry.
There are several options when it comes to contractor vehicle graphics:
- Partial Wrap
- Full Wrap
- Fleet Wraps
Magnets are great for temporary sign needs and can be removed and replaced daily if necessary. They work especially well when you are using a personal vehicle for work and would like the option of being anonymous when you clock out. To create vehicle magnets, we print full color on high quality magnetic material. Standard size is 12” x 24”, but custom sizing and contour shape cutting is available as well. The printed area provides enough room for a logo and essential information like phone number and website. Truck magnets are a cost-effective option for custom vehicle graphics.
- Vehicle Lettering can span a larger area than what a pair of vehicle magnets will typically cover. We use either intermediate or high performance vinyl, depending on your needs and budget, and the vinyl lettering will last around 3 years for intermediate quality vinyl, and up to 7 years for high performance vinyl when installed properly. We stock dozens of colors including metallics, and we have thousands of fonts to choose from. In addition, we can cut custom designs, including logo shapes in single or multiple colors.
- A Partial Wrap is a really great option for many contractors. When designed properly, a partial coverage wrap can give the impact of a full wrap, but with half the vinyl coverage, and essentially, half the cost. Our designers can work with existing paint color to create a design that seamlessly blends from vinyl wrap to vehicle.
A Full Vehicle Wrap means full impact. When customers see a great full wrap, they can immediately tell you’re a company that doesn’t cut corners. A well-designed truck wrap gives off a professional impression, and it takes advantage of the advertising space available on front, back, and sides of your vehicle. Our full and partial wraps are printed on high performance vinyl and installed in-house by our certified car wrap installation team. Vehicle wraps will last 5-7 years or more, and they offer the best return on your advertising dollar.
- Fleet Wraps take vehicle wraps to the next level. Whether it’s a full or partial wrap, we can outfit multiple vehicles with identical or matching graphics. We will tailor a design to match across different vehicle types in case the vehicles in your fleet include different makes or models.
Vehicle graphics generate up to 70,000 impressions per day with a 96% recall rate among those tens of thousands of consumers. Vehicle wraps are the best form of outdoor advertising, reaching more consumers at a lower cost than any other form of outdoor advertising. With all the options available, no matter what your budget may be, you can create a positive, memorable impression for your business by adding vehicle graphics to your truck or fleet.

Contractors starting up a new business, or just trying to revamp an existing one, should consider their brand positioning. Whether the business is multi-tier or just a one-person contractor, building a brand goes hand in hand with gaining customers and building a local customer base.
Contractors can find their brand identity by cueing in on anything that defines their company, including products, services, warranties, guarantees, customer service, and ideals. What can your business offer that others in the area cannot? What is the customer perception on your product or service? Once you’ve identified your branding strategy, you’re ready to market it.
There are many ways to advertise your business, but the key is to keep branding consistent no matter what type of marketing or signage you choose to use. Just one slogan rather than several and the same colors and logos throughout is a must. These are the three most essential contractor advertising ideas we recommend:
Contractor promotional products keep advertising for as long as they are useful, which means up to years of promotion. Nifty items like pens, notepads, Nalgene water bottles, and Frisbees are just a few examples of promotional products customers will come back to again and again.
Mr. Rooter Plumbing’s clever toilet paper promotional item will not be soon forgotten by its users.
In addition to fun and creative promo items that might be specific to your industry, for any type of contractor, we recommend refrigerator magnets. Whenever you service someone’s home, before you leave, stick your magnet on their fridge with a couple of business cards and a brochure listing all your services. They’ll know just who to call next time, and they’ll have quick access to your number if they want to recommend you to someone else. Your Signs for Success account representative can help you with selection and pricing or you can browse anytime at our Promotional Products Store.
Professional Business Cards
Business cards are like promotional products – they are the traditional leave-behind tool that many customers have come to expect. Many people keep them on hand for future reference. Make your card easily recognizable by keeping colors and graphics consistent with your contractor business branding. Give a few cards to happy customers so they can pass them on.
You’ve invested in service vehicles, now use them! A truck wrap for your work truck(s) or van fleet wraps are a great use of space you already own. All that is required is a one-time investment for a wrap that will last 5-7 years. According to research, just the fact that your signs are on your vehicle rather than a board or post in the ground generates more interest and recall rate among viewers, and vehicle wraps can generate up to 70,000 impressions per day! To top off your truck wrap or van wrap, consider business card holders that can be directly attached to either side of the vehicle. Potential customers can lift the top and take a business card with them.
These 3 contractor advertising ideas will work together to create a positive lasting impression with your target audience. Let us help you create promotional items, business cards, and vehicle wraps to build your brand and your customer base.

Although many franchises advertise nationally, advertising in the local market is important, too. In smaller towns where local business has a strong following, franchises may need to give their advertising a little boost to stay in competition. In Spokane, both Mr. Rooter Plumbing and Little Caesar’s Pizza have opted for franchise vehicle wraps to get their business noticed.
As always, one of the very best advertising methods in terms of return on investment is a vehicle wrap. Using your own company vehicle, service or delivery vehicle is a great way to utilize valuable advertising space you already own. You can enhance a national campaign by enlisting local advertising, and for much less than you would spend on traditional advertising venues like print or television. According to 3M (a vinyl manufacturer), a company would have to spend $130,000 in advertising dollars to achieve the same effect as one $3,500 vehicle wrap. Pair that value with the tens of thousands of impressions created daily by moving vehicle wraps, and you will definitely see a high return on your vehicle wrap investment.
Franchisees are lucky because they can utilize national logos and awards, but still customize their vehicle wrap with local elements like telephone number, website, and even community involvement such as charities or memberships. Rather than relying solely on national advertising, building a franchise brand locally will ultimately strengthen the local customer base.

Truck wraps Spokane increase brand awareness, and they promote a professional image. A full vehicle wrap is a great way to stand out among other brands and businesses, especially since vehicle graphics boast a 96% recall rate among consumers. Signs for Success collaborated with MDI Marketing to create this seamless truck wrap for Lexar Homes.
“MDI gave us the graphics and initial layout. I had to modify it to fit the actual truck, according to specific measurements and unique features of the truck,” Signs for Success designer Will Oakley explained. “Since the truck was already black, we saved him some money by creating a design that avoided wrapping the roof and the back bumper.”
Our designers are adept at creating what we call partial coverage vehicle wraps by fading graphics to the vehicle’s paint color. This maximizes the impact of graphics, and gives the same impression as a full vehicle wrap at a fraction of the cost. The Lexar Homes design incorporates green, blue and black graphics. The graphics fade to black whenever the wrap reaches a part of the truck that isn’t being wrapped. The bold Lexar Homes logo is large and easy to read, even when the truck is on the road.
This truck wrap was printed on Avery vinyl wrap film with a gloss laminate. Our install team did a great job applying the vinyl to the vehicle for a seamless finish. “The truck looks great!” Bob Oliver of Lexar Homes said. “We appreciate your great and professional work!”

At Signs for Success, we have designed, printed and installed hundreds of truck graphics and wraps. This custom truck wrap Spokane was designed for Lewis Construction. Simple logo graphics, phone number and address fade into full color artwork designed to catch the eye. A modern, clean design makes a great vehicle wrap, and vehicle wraps give your business a professional edge.
In addition, truck wraps generate a 97% recall rate among viewers, according to Outdoor Advertising Magazine TACA’s market research. Wraps generate more interest than a static billboard, and they travel all over town, bringing the advertising to thousands of more viewers. Even driving through your neighborhood on your way home from work is valuable advertising time, and a custom truck wrap Spokane will truly work overtime to reach your audience.
To create a wrap design, we first take photos and measurements of the actual vehicle. This allows us to create a design template that reflects exactly where any features of the vehicle may appear in the design. For example, you don’t want your logo to be skewed or a phone number to be lost because it falls across two doors or a door handle. Our designers send proofs for approval and may tweak the design as necessary. After printing, our Avery certified installers expertly apply the wrap. The finished result is a smooth, painted-on finish, and graphics that are uniquely your own. Vehicles wraps offer excellent return on investment – a custom truck wrap Spokane will advertise 24/7 for at least 5-7 years!

Truck Wraps for Functional Marketing
Around Predation Crossfit, you may hear words like “functional movement” and “functional fitness,” but what about “functional advertising” and “functional marketing“? Crossfit combines calisthenics and strength training in natural movements that can be directly applied to our lives. It’s a high-intensity and highly effective method of training. Predation Crossfit owners Chance and Erin exercise to make their bodies the strongest and best they can be. Now they’ve done the same for their business, strengthening their marketing by adding truck wraps to their advertising.
Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger created the one-of-a-kind truck wraps design based on meaningful symbols to Chance and Erin. The eagle represents Chance’s 20 years as a U.S. Navy SEAL. The eagle is carrying three things: the kettlebell, which is used in various ways at Predation Crossfit and is representative of crossfit, the barbell for strength, and the ax because Erin is a world champion in Lumberjack Sports. “And of course the American flag because we love this country; America is the greatest place,” Erin added, “Not many people ask about the meaning behind it. They just see it and think it’s cool. It’s both of our lives wrapped into one.”
We printed the graphics on 3M’s Controltac, a high-performance conformable vinyl. We used perforated window film to wrap the eagle’s wings around to the back window. Perforated film allows graphics to be placed on windows without obstructing the view from inside the vehicle. Adding vehicle lettering for their phone number and website completed this partial truck wraps.
Vehicle wraps generate interest and get seen all over town. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars per month running ads, use high impacting and efficient truck graphics. According to the American Trucking Association, 98% of in-car audiences notice and remember truck-side ads. That’s an incredible return on your advertising dollar. Truck wraps look professional, generate curiosity, and boost brand recognition. Vehicle wraps are the best form of outdoor advertising, reaching more consumers at a lower cost than any other form of outdoor advertising.
Within one week, the newly wrapped Predation Crossfit truck brought a new customer to the gym who saw the truck parked outside and decided to go in. Try your own custom truck wraps.
Just as Crossfit has come on the scene filling a void where static exercise regimens couldn’t fully prepare its trainees for real-world situations, mobile advertising gets your business the best exposure possible and fills a literal void on vehicles. You own the space to advertise, you just have to fill it. Coupling traditional forms of signage with mobile advertising gives you a strategy that will reach the widest audience and keep your business fit.
