Partial Van Wrap Gets Best ROI

partial van wrap, custom van wrap spokane saves time and moneyIf vehicle wraps get you the best ROI in outdoor advertising, then partial wraps top that list.   A partial van wrap makes the most of your advertising budget by cutting the wrapping film used by as much as half. 

You can get an eye catching, original wrap design–one that boosts brand recognition and generates thousands of positive impressions daily–for less than an all-over printed wrap.

Strategically placed elements can give the illusion of a full wrap. This minimizes material as well as installation time. 

We did this simple but effective partial van wrap for Western Equipment and Irrigation Distributors.  By keeping the background white to match the van paint color, we were able to add contrasting red accents along with the company logo across the sides, with minimal material and quick installation. 

partial vehicle wrap spokaneThis van wrap for the Pool Service Company incorporates a partial coverage design. The waves below make up the majority of the wrap, while lettering above minimizes the material needed. The effect is a cool and relevant wrap design that will turn heads.

Some other partial van wrap accents include: 

  • Embossing
  • Custom Lettering 
  • Logo cut-outs
  • Logo color accents like striping or color blocking
  • Wrapping sections, such as the bottom half only
  • Fading from the original paint color into the design for an ombre effect

The options are practically limitless.  Our designers can help brainstorm ideas to come up with the perfect wrap design you’re looking for.  If you’re on a budget, consider a partial van wrap to achieve the effect of a full vehicle wrap for less.

Norlift truck wrap, fleet graphics in Spokane

Fleet Advertising Graphics for Norlift!

Norlift truck wrap, fleet advertisng graphics in SpokaneNorlift Fleet advertising Graphics match across all their vehicles, no matter the make or model.  In fact, the vastly different truck and van we recently wrapped match well despite the huge differences in surface area and sizing.

They each have the required vehicle lettering, like DOT and GVW numbers, as well as the Norlift logo and forklift graphics.  Creative positioning makes the most of the visual space on each vehicle.  The truck is very segmented, requiring design to be carefully laid out in each section.  Each section contains a piece of the design, from logo to sponsor decals.  Also worth noting, each section has a white background that matches the vehicle paint color. This gives the impression of a full wrap, but at a fraction of the cost.

van wraps spokane, fleet advertising graphics and wraps match across any make or model Norlift The van has a much larger area to work with, but design elements are still placed thoughtfully to create a balance between the graphics and white space.  To get the best and most accurate layout, we first take photos and measurements of each vehicle.  With these, we can create a custom template that takes into account individual features, like each truck segment, door handles, etc.  Customized designs allow fleet vehicles to match perfectly and make them easily recognizable on the road.

Fleet advertising graphics make a big impact. They reach more consumers at a lower cost than any other form of outdoor advertising.  Simply adding your logo to each vehicle in a fleet increases brand recognition in the community and promotes a professional image.  Full or partial fleet graphics will get noticed wherever you go!

Partial Vehicle Wrap, Big Impact

partial vehicle wrap spokaneYou can’t go wrong with a partial vehicle wrap.  With all the benefits of wrap graphics, but at a fraction of the cost, a partial wrap might be just the thing for your small or new business.

First, the benefits of vehicle wrap graphics:

  • Project a professional image
  • Build your brand in the community
  • Advertise 24/7
  • Lasts 5-7 years
  • Protects original paint job

How does a partial wrap save money?

  • Less material is used
  • Less labor is required

There are even some tricks we can use to make the most of a partial wrap.  Partial coverage can be a part of the design.  Like this wrap for The Pool Service Company, the majority of the design is waves of water, only needed along the bottom half of the vehicle.

In a partial wrap, decals can be strategically placed for interest and impact.  Your vehicle’s paint color can be integrated into the design which increases the visual impact as well.  Another technique we use is blending or fading graphics into the paint color to look like a full wrap.

For any vehicle wrap, quality control begins with using the best materials.  We use the highest quality 3M or Avery wrap film.  Our wrap installers are Avery certified, and we have our own climate controlled install facility on-site.

To sum things up, a partial vehicle wrap is a great way to advertise your business on the road and in the communities you serve.  Vehicle graphics get seen by thousands of drivers, bike riders and pedestrians every day.  They leave a lasting positive impression, and you can increase the impact with fleet graphics.  We’d love to brand your vehicle!  Signs for Success is a locally owned family business in Spokane.

New Logo Design Unifies Custom Signs and Van Wrap

Pioneer Homes van wrap design featuring new logo, created by Signs for Success

We have the opportunity with many businesses looking for a fresh start, or new businesses just starting up, to create a logo design and brand image from scratch.  Working with the customer to achieve their vision is rewarding, especially when we get to see the final product – a complete advertising campaign utilizing the new logo across different media.  For Pioneer Homes, we helped create a new logo design and implement it into the production of custom yard signs, business cards and a van wrap.

Logo Design Spokane

Our experienced design team works with customers one on one to come up with a logo design that suits their company identity and goals.  “We came up with a new logo after many revisions.  Gil is thrilled with his new logo,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger said.  Logos are a shorthand way of referring to the company.  They are the “face” of the company, and they provide a standard and unified focus for the various fonts, colors and design choices in all other marketing materials.  As such, it’s important to take the time to work out a design that will convey that unique identity.

Pioneer Homes Yard Signs proof

Custom Yard Signs

Custom yard signs are a cost-effective way to advertise on and near properties you are working on.  The standard size for yard signs is 18” x 24,” but yard signs are customizable, including sign size, colors, text and artwork.  Vanessa was able to incorporate the new logo into the yard sign design while still maintaining a clean, easy-to-read design.  We print yard signs on weather-resistant corrugated plastic.  Printing can be single- or double-sided, and UV-curable inks hold up outdoors for several months, up to a few years, depending on weather and direct sun exposure.

Van Wrap Design

Vehicle wraps are regarded as the best form of outdoor advertising in terms of return on investment (ROI).  It’s a no brainer to use space you already own to advertise your business, especially when that space also travels to all the communities you want to advertise in.  Furthermore, vehicle wraps generate up to 70,000 impressions per day, and they last 5-7+ years.

“We used his own great photos from jobs he has done in the Inland Northwest as well as out in the Seattle and Western Washington area,” Vanessa said.  Using photographs from finished projects is a great idea – not only is your logo advertised wherever the vehicle goes, but proof of your expertise does as well.  When it comes to van wrap design, simple and bold is the way to go.  Too much text or lots of small photos are difficult to process quickly.  On the other hand, a large logo, large photo and contact information gives just enough visual impact without overwhelming.

Gil of Pioneer Homes was able to use the new logo across different media, from yard signs and business cards to a new van wrap.  Now with the cohesive look, Pioneer Homes is giving a great first impression wherever business takes them.  Signs for Success is a locally owned family business in Spokane, and we strive for excellent customer service, perfect color, and quick turnaround on every project.  Our large production facility allows us to design, print and install everything in-house.  Get quality service and a quick turnaround on logo design Spokane, custom signs and more; contact us for a free quote today!

Van Wraps Spokane give this Diverse Fleet a Cohesive Look

Wrap or just lettering on your step van like The Arc of Spokane by Signs for Success, van wraps spokane

The Arc of Spokane custom graphics on step van

Bringing together different sizes and different backgrounds sounds more like a feel good catch phrase than a fleet branding solution, but it’s just what we did when creating a solution for Arc of Spokane‘s diverse van fleet.  The thing that brought all these van wraps Spokane together for a cohesive look: a single sheet of white vinyl.  The Arc logo printed on white vinyl and applied to the length and height of each side panel of each van gave the fleet one cohesive look.

The original fleet contained vans of varying sizes and graphics.  One van had old vinyl lettering that left a sticky black mess behind (traditional vinyl will leave adhesive behind when removed; we use high performance vinyl with a releasable adhesive, so when it comes time to change out graphics, nothing gets left behind).  Another van had permanent painted-on logos on either side.  The goal of the van wraps was to give this vehicle fleet a complete, unified look.

Full sheets of white vinyl can be applied to any vehicle, no matter what size or type of graphics have been applied previously.  In addition to matching graphics across the fleet, using bright white material gave the vans the appearance of being brand new, though some were older than others.

Fred Meyer of Arc of Spokane was thrilled with the new look for their van fleet.  “I want to really thank you for all the hoops everyone jumped through to help get the load unloaded.  Your help goes beyond what most businesses would do.  From the Arc I truly thank everyone for their help and professional manner which you stepped up.  It’s been a huge pleasure to have had you as a business partner on all of our logo and graphic placements,” Fred wrote back to us.

We are proud to serve such great companies in and around the Spokane area.  Signs for Success will find solutions for your unique vehicle or fleet transformation.  We’ve designed, printed and installed hundreds of van wraps and vehicle graphics.  Signs for Success is a locally owned family business in Spokane, and we strive for excellent customer service, perfect color, and quick turnaround on every project.  Our large production facility allows us to design, print and install everything in-house.  Get quality service and a quick turnaround on van wraps Spokane; See More Van Wraps!

Try this Blending Technique in your Custom Vehicle Wrap Design

Contractor Van WrapVehicle wraps often require several printed panels to cover an entire vehicle.  Matching seams up is critical to achieving a seamless wrap.  Especially when a geometric pattern is involved, matching lines up between panels gets a little tricky.  Here is one blending technique you can use in the design stage to make installation simpler. Our Handyman’s logo graphics involved a sunburst in shades of blue topped with several circles.  It’s an eye-catching and modern design, but it’s also a potential geometric nightmare when it comes time to install several printed panels.  When working with the file, graphic designer Will Oakley noticed that when the panels were in place, the sun bursts went in completely different directions.  “They would have crossed perpendicular to each other,” he said.  “Not only were there sunbursts, which are always a problem, but there were circles on top of the sunbursts.”

The circles began small on the outside and got larger towards the middle.  Without blending, three sets of dots would have met in a dramatic size difference rather than the gradual gradation intended.  Will solved the problem by fading to blue on the panel edges.  On all the physical edges of the vehicle, like the where the back of the vehicle meets the sides, he faded to a single color.  The subtle fade helps to blend the sides and the back of the van so that lines appear smooth and unbroken.  The back and sides were the main issue.  When it came to the hood connecting with the fenders, “they lined up almost perfectly.” Will explained.  “Sometimes we get lucky.”  The end result was a vibrant and seamless van wrap we hope Our Handyman will enjoy for several years to come.

With any custom vehicle wrap design, special care must be taken in the design stage to be sure graphics are properly placed so that when printed, they fall where we expect them to.  It’s not something to leave up to chance.  There is a creative solution to any challenge we face, and we’re always up to the challenge!

Custom Van Wrap for local Non-Profit

Habitat for Humanity in Spokane needed a custom wrap on their delivery box truck in Spokane Valley, custom van wrap

Unique wrap for Habitat for Humanity Spokane

Designer Will Oakley was able to put both his design and his photography skills to use in this custom van wrap design for Habitat for Humanity.  He worked through four different designs before the final effect was achieved.

Wrap the back of your van or truck with a custom unique wrap graphic by Signs for Success Spokane, custom van wrap

Unique custom wrap showing some of the donated items sold

Perhaps the most distinctive portion of the design is the back of the van.  The wrap features an open door with several labeled items you might find in a donation van.  A creative way to showcase their services, this image was generated from a photograph of the inside of an actual Habitat for Humanity van.

Everyone was excited to get this job going, even though several rainy, snowy, or cloudy days often prevented getting the perfect shot.  With patience and perseverance, and about 100 camera shots down the line, the perfect shot was merged with the perfect design.  Will used a Nikon D60 camera for the photography, and Adobe Photoshop and Flexi Designer programs to set up this design.

Installation went smoothly at the Signs for Success install facility where, luckily, weather is not a factor.  “The picture on the back makes you look twice.  At first glance, it looks like the door’s open and all the donated product is going to fall out on you, but it’s just a picture,” installer Rich Wilke said.  The sides of the van give vital information like the organization’s name, phone number, address, “open to the public,” and “free pick-up service.”  QR codes give a quick link to Habitat for Humanity’s Spokane store website.  The final effect is an eye-catching, informative, yet artful van wrap design.  Contact Signs for Success for a free quote on your custom van wrap!
