A vehicle wrap could be described as a big vinyl decal being wrapped around the entire surface of any van, car, boat, truck or bus. ‘Wraps’ are also done to motorcycles, windows, floors, and even onto cell phones. A partial wrap implies only a portion of a vehicle surface being covered.
Most frequently the cost is determined by a charge by the square foot of the vehicle. There may be surcharged for additional curvature on some vehicles because these intricate wraps take longer to complete.
Definitely. A professional will remove the wrap material which is backed with an adhesive that requires products to remove it. If you know it will be temporary, ask ahead of time. Special process can be used to make the wrap easier to remove.
We can’t measure a dollar amount you’ll earn from a wrap, but you can expect to generate at least 10-30 thousand impressions daily. Your name recognition is expected to be more than 15x greater. To get the same advertising effects as a $3,000 wrap, you would need to spend ten times that! Since 90% of people surveyed notice vehicle graphics, it’d be hard to predict the exact lead generation you can expect your wrap to produce for you.
Signsational Graphics consistently uses premium vinyl wrapping material. Our installers have been trained by the Signworld program and we guarantee the installation and materials for two years. We charge by the square foot and offer incentives for fleets and multiple vehicle installation spanning a year.
The turnaround time varies based on your specific needs. We keep all the major materials in stock because we understand our clients needs are sometimes more urgent. That’s how we’re able to produce a job on very short notice. We also try to work with suppliers that are close and/or deliver next day, so we can get rush jobs done if needed.
We work with the most professional design applications, including Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. If we’re “cutting” the lettering or logo out, we will be needing a Vector File, otherwise we can digitize (or Vectorize) the artwork you provide us in a JPEG, TIFF, PSD, GIF, etc. at an additional charge. You can email us your “print ready” or “cut ready” artwork, mail a CD-R, CD-RW, DVD or USB flash drive, or upload your file to our website. Please be sure that artwork is sent in “high resolution”. If you have questions concerning your artwork or need help uploading, feel free to contact us by phone or email.
If sending your artwork in “real size”, please send your work at 150 dpi. We can also work with a one-inch-to-one-foot ratio (Example: if the art is to be 6 feet long and 4 feet tall, the submitted artwork should be 6 inches long and 4 inches tall) at 300 dpi.
Dpi is the standard of measurement for the resolution of images, describing the number of dots per inch (dpi) that are used to create an image. The higher the dpi, the higher the resolution, which translates to better quality for your final product.
Vector and bitmap images are the two major graphic types. Both types are made up of many individual objects, and both respond differently when enlarged and/or reduced to produce different sizes of images. We can use both types of files, however we prefer vector files and can change sizes easily without sacrificing quality, using original vector formats. Vector images can be output at the highest quality in any scale because they are made of lines and panels, rather than pixels or dots. Vector images are resolution independent and the common vector formats are eps, ai and pdf. These formats are available in most graphics programs. A bitmap image (also called a raster image) is made of pixels (sometimes referred to as dots). The number of pixels in one square inch of an image is called the dpi (dots per inch) and is known as the resolution of the image (Example: 150 dpi means that the image has 150 dots per square inch within that image). Quite simply, the larger number of dots you have in your image produces a higher quality of reproduction. Bitmap images loose quality when the are re-sized from their original size and must be created with consideration for their output use. Bitmap images should be built at 150 dpi if they are at the actual finished size. You can build the bitmap files at a smaller proportional size than the final usage size, but you must increase the resolution accordingly. For instance, if you build your file at a ratio of 1 inch = 1 foot, you should build the file at 300 dpi. In this case, you would build a 2 inch x 2 inch file at 300 dpi to print a resulting 2 foot x 2 foot image at 150 dpi. Common bitmap-based formats are jpeg, jpg, gif, tiff, png, pict and bmp. Although vector image is the preferred format for submitting artwork, it is not as common for non- designers and bitmap images at the correct resolution can be substituted.
