New Van Wrap for Riverview Retirement

Shuttle Van 3M vinyl wrap for Riverview Retirement Center, van wrapWe recently completed a new van wrap for Riverview Retirement Community. Their transport van got a full wrap with vibrant, eye catching graphics on both sides and the back of the van.

This van wrap was printed on 3M vinyl. 3M’s high performance printable wrap vinyl offers “unrivaled conformability and lifting resistance” that stretches and adheres to all the contours of a vehicle.  Vehicle wraps last 5-7 years, and UV laminate makes the graphics scratch and fade resistant.

Bright colors and the Riverview logo finish off this van wrap design.

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!

Contractor Fleet Wraps Maximize Advertising Space

Clean Rite Carpet Cleaning’s first van wrap

Vehicle graphics can generate up to 16 million impressions per year.  Imagine the impact on your target audience by outfitting not just one vehicle, but three, four, or more!  Fleet wraps work overtime, getting your name out and leaving a lasting positive impression.  One local contractor made the leap from no vehicle advertising to three matching van fleet wraps, and was extremely happy with the result.

“This customer had been in business for over 30 years and had never had any kind of logo on his van,” Signs for Success designer Will Oakley explained.  “He didn’t have email or a website, only yellow pages advertising, so we sat down and first created a logo.”

The customer had just purchased a new van to add to his lineup and decided it was time to try vehicle advertising.  “We incorporated the logo into a partial coverage van wrap design, and he liked the design so much, he decided to have all three of his vans wrapped,” Will said.

Why Fleet Wraps?

A great wrap design can be inspiring.  It can take an order from one van to a fleet, and it can leave lasting positive impressions wherever it goes.  Unfortunately, yellow pages advertising simply is not enough in the competitive environment we face.  Contractors need to take advantage of their mobile advertising space, creating moving billboards on their service vans and trucks.  Fleet wraps turn heads and get noticed all over town, in target neighborhoods, and even during lunch break.  With fleet wraps, you can create positive impressions and grow your business 24/7.

In this van wrap design, crisp blue graphics stand out against a white background, and the seamless transition from white vinyl film to the OEM paint job makes this partial coverage wrap look like a full wrap.  Text is placed strategically and gives just the right amount of information—contact information and an invitation to act based on their experience and quality guarantee—without overwhelming.

Whether you want a full vehicle wrap or a partial coverage wrap, your custom wrap will be designed for maximum impact.  Our experienced in-house design team works with customers one-on-one to create the perfect fleet wrap design to maximize the space on all your vehicles, no matter the make or model of each.  Contact us for a free quote!

Zerorez Fleet Graphics get Modern Updates

Zerorez custom van wrap designed by Signs for Success

Fleet graphics can be intimidating – with several vehicles to outfit, you want to make sure you get the design right.  Zerorez is a great example of effective fleet wrap advertising.  The owner has steadily grown the company over 10+ years while at the same time updating his fleet graphics little by little along the way.

“I have the pleasure of working with the owner and the marketing staff every time a new vehicle comes into the fleet,” Signs for Success designer Kimberly Hoffmann explained.  Over the span of a decade, the van wrap design has remained more or less the same, but little details are changed every so often to keep the vehicle wraps fresh and modern.  “The most recent update to the design was adding the black hood and black rear doors, which seems to be trendy nowadays,” Kimberly said.

There are a few timeless details that really make these fleet van wraps pop.  Crisp graphics use the entire length of the van, and the large Zerorez logo makes the vehicle instantly recognizable.  Mixed finishes and accents are certainly trending right now in vehicle graphics, so Zerorez was smart to add touches of contrasting black to their fleet graphics.

By updating graphics, they’re not stuck with one design for too long.  Making improvements has really allowed their fleet wrap advertising to excel, improving both sales and brand recognition.

Dryer Ducks Van Wrap focuses on Effective Wrap Design

When Dominic Longo of Dryer Ducks came to Signs for Success, his main goal was to create a functional van wrap design that really popped.  With a new logo in hand, he sat down with one of our designers to begin the custom vehicle wrap design process.

The Dryer Ducks logo was the jumping off point for the design.

“I designed the wrap using their logo and before and after pictures of a duct,” Signs for Success designer Will Oakley said.  “Because their logo is a duck they wanted people to know what service they provided so they wouldn’t be confused by the logo. We added the before and after pictures to the wrap to make it more obvious.”

The clean, modern design focused on a few simple and effective graphics and minimal text.  The website, phone number and catch phrase can be clearly read from both sides and the back of the vehicle.  The large logo makes the vehicle recognizable wherever it goes, and catch phrase vinyl lettering over the wheel well makes creative, interesting use of the space.  All the elements come together to create an interesting and effective vehicle wrap design.

“One of the features the customer really liked was the repeating logo pattern I put in the background. They liked the first proof I sent,” Will said.

This is what we call a “partial wrap” because the back and sides are fully wrapped, while the front fender and hood are decals that were printed, cut and applied to the paint.  Partial wraps give you the most bang for your buck because they really maximize the largest advertising space while blending seamlessly into unwrapped portions of the vehicle.  The finished product looks like a full vehicle wrap, but the process uses less material and takes less time to install than a full wrap.  A partial vehicle wrap is a great way to go if you’re considering adding vehicle graphics to your advertising, using effective wrap design.

Dominic was thrilled with the van wrap.  “Signs for Success did an incredible job on our vehicle wrap,” he said.  “Being a start-up business in Spokane, we needed something that would really stand out.  Will Oakley at Signs for Success took our logo and turned our van into the most amazing mobile billboard we could have ever asked for!  His design was outstanding and he really took initiative on all fronts.  He made sure to give us exactly what we wanted, and kept us informed the whole time!  Working with Will made the process so easy, and we will definitely use him for our whole fleet as we expand!”

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

VANS

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!

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.”
