If you have ever seen an eye-catching vehicle with a daring print, chances are good that vehicle is wrapped. While spray jobs and custom spray paintwork can cost you a small fortune, custom vehicle wrapping is a cost-effective and quality solution that accomplishes the same for less.
Why Wrap a Vehicle?
Many businesses and individuals wrap their vehicles as a form of bright and cheery advertising. It is quick, easy, and the design opportunities are endless. One of the biggest reasons wraps are popular is because of their wide-ranging custom and eye-catching graphics, from simple color changes—to wild and funky designs.
Wraps are made with vinyl, so they don’t damage the underlying paint. If you ever decide to sell your branded vehicle, you can remove the wraps; the paint underneath will look as it did before the vehicle wrap.
Vehicle wraps also have another purpose: They protect your vehicle from minor scratches and rock dings—and the paint is preserved from weather and sun damage. Wraps offer the utmost simplicity. You can have it peeled off and replaced quickly, hassle-free.

- Company fleet control. Marked vehicles are another way to ensure your company staff drive safely and with rules of the road in mind. There’s always a measure of accountability present.
- Sometimes a change is significant. Oftentimes, people like to personalize their cars—much like they would with something like their hair or jewelry. A new color or a design is sometimes all you need to boost your confidence and sport something fresh, exciting, and new.
- As good as new. Everyone’s first car is exciting. at least to some extent. A vinyl wrap adds a little oomph to a hand-me-down or older vehicle. For problem paint jobs, a full vehicle wrap can leave your vehicle looking as good as new, without the fresh paint and detail cost.
Do I Come Up with the Design On My Own?

- Art references. Sign Source has skilled and professional designers that can turn a dream into reality. Be sure to have your artwork references on hand, as well as any logos you might have. It would be best to put together a digital pack of information and files for the team to work with.
- Full information. The artist will need a complete list of details and any text that you’d like incorporated.
- Realistic expectations. We sometimes get a little stuck on how something is supposed to look with your placements’ ideas. Remember that a design might look great on a truck, but it will look a little different on your sedan. Your Sign Source artist will be able to create a design for your vehicle that accounts for the best angle, size, and placement.
- Vehicle Details. Your artist will need the year, make, and model of your vehicle for the best fit.
Once the artist understands your ideas, they will be able to incorporate them and create your designs. Your artist will submit designs for your approval before applying them to your vehicle.
