Why should I wrap my vehicle?


Interested in wrapping your vehicle?  Doing so turns your everyday commuter, or delivery vehicle into a rolling billboard.  Wraps have proven to be incredibly effective advertisement and will give you the best return on investment for your money.  Here are a few statistics:


  • The American Trucking Association (ATA) reported 91% of people surveyed do notice vehicle graphics.

  • The Traffic Audit Bureau for Media Measurement demonstrated that a vehicle can generate between 30K – 70K impressions daily.

  • According to 3M (a prominent tape and vinyl substrate provider) a company would need to spend $130,000 in advertising dollars to produce the same effects of a $3,500 vehicle wrap.

  • Studies effectively show vehicle graphics make name recognition more than 15 times greater.



A full vehicle wrap starts at around $2000 larger projects like box trucks, RV's, Trailers, car haulers, and buses can be as expensive as $5000.  If you were to spend $2500 on a wrap for a vehicle and it lasts you 5 years that is a cost of $52 a month. No other form of advertisement will give you the same amount of exposure each day for the same amount of money.  Wrapping a vehicle gives you the opportunity to take a completely stock vehicle and transform it into anything you want, and when you're done with the vehicle the wrap film comes off and you have the same vehicle you started with.


How much does it cost?


The cost of vehicle wrap is dependent on the following factors:


  • Square Footage of Vehicle: Vehicle wrap prices are primarily based on the amount of square footage of material needed to wrap a vehicle. Because of this, a larger vehicle like a cargo van or a box truck will cost more than something smaller, like a compact car. This is also the reason that full vehicle wraps are more expensive than partial wraps.

  • Complexity of Vehicle: Some vehicles are more physically complex and detailed than others, which means that our installers will require extra time to make sure that your wrap is properly installed. A vehicle that is particularly curvy, like a Volkswagen Beetle, will take more time than a vehicle that is made up of simple flat surfaces, like a box truck or trailer.

  • Material Used For Wrapping: There are many different kinds of vinyl wrap material on the market, and the quality of your wrap material will affect the overall cost. All of our wraps are done using Avery 1005EZ or 3M-IJ180C materials.

  • Window and Roof Coverage: An important consideration for your vehicle wrap is whether or not you will be covering the windows and roof of your vehicle. Leaving your windows and roof blank will cut down on the available space for your vehicle graphics, but it can also reduce the square footage of material used and cut costs.
