3 Characteristics of a Good Vehicle Wrap Design

At ProDezigns, our talented designers work with you to ensure your vehicle wrap becomes an effective tool for marketing your business. Here are a few characteristics you'll want to incorporate into the concept for your Missouri custom vehicle wrap.

1. Proper Branding.


When designing a vehicle wrap, branding should be top of mind. You may have some great idea for a really awesome image, but if people don't associate those graphics with your business, they aren't going to remember you. Make sure that your vehicle wrap is easily identifiable with your business, whether through your logo, company name and/or slogan. Your vehicle wrap should be consistent with all your other marketing materials so that consumers aren't confused about your brand. Keep the color scheme the same, the logo the same, fonts the same, etc.

2. Easy-to-Discern Messaging.


Determine the goal or your vehicle wrap. Do you want to drive more traffic to your storefront? Do you want people to pick up the phone and call you? Do you want them to visit your website? Make sure the message you are sending to your clients is clear and easy to understand. Not only do you want them to know who you are and what you do, but you want them to act on it. Be sure to include an address, phone number and/or website address so prospective customers know how to reach you. Just don't get carried away on the text, as people only have a few seconds to read and interpret your message when you're driving down the highway.

3. Simple, Unique Design. 


The auto advertising industry is growing fast. You're seeing more and more vehicles with graphics on the road. Make your message stand out, but not in a busy, over-crowded way. Keep your design simple, again people only have a few seconds to view it and absorb it. Make sure it's legible and your message doesn't get lost in visual noise. By eliminating fills, noisy backgrounds and excess photos, you'll have a design that both stands out and is visually pleasing to the eye.

ProDezigns is here to help you get maximum marketing results through custom vehicle graphics at the Lake of the Ozarks.

FAQ FRIDAY: Your Vehicle Wrap Questions Answered

While vehicle wraps are gaining in popularity as a way to increase brand awareness, business owners still have lots of questions about vehicle wraps and auto advertising in Missouri. In today's blog, Missouri's best vehicle wrap shop answers some of our most frequently asked questions about vehicle wraps:

1. What Is A Vehicle Wrap?


A "vehicle wrap" is the common term used for graphics which are applied to cars, vans, trucks, buses, boats or any other vehicle as either a form of mobile advertising or customizing a vehicle to enhance its appearance, giving it a personal flair. Vehicle wraps can be applied to the entire vehicle or just parts of the vehicle.

2. Why Should I Wrap My Vehicle?


Vehicle wraps offer 24/7 advertising for your business. They offer the greatest returns on investment than any other form of advertising, generating between 30,000 and 70,000 impressions per day, per vehicle. Unlike other forms of advertising, a vehicle wrap is a one-time investment that will pay for itself over and over for 5+ years!

3. How Long Does It Take To Wrap My Vehicle?


While installation times vary depending on the complexity of the project, a basic wrap job will take about 1-3 days. Due to the nature of the adhesive vinyl and the complex curves to which it's applied, we build in an extra 24 hours after the application to allow for the film to fully adhere to the vehicle.

4. Does It Matter What Color My Car Is?


No matter the color of your vehicle, it can be wrapped. Our vehicle wrap films are opaque and you cannot see through it.

5. Does It Affect The Paint On My Car?


Our vehicle wrap materials are formulated with removable adhesive that does not harm the factory paint on your car, as long as it's in good condition. In fact, many people find that our wraps act as a protective barrier, assisting in higher resale value when the wrap is removed.

6. If A Vehicle Wrap Is Damaged, Can It Be Fixed? 


In most cases, if a vehicle wrap is damaged, the pieces or panels of the wrap can be replaced after the vehicle has been repaired. If the damage is contained to a certain area, you do not need to have the entire wrap redone.

7. Can Vehicle Wraps Be Washed? 


Not only can vehicle wraps be washed, but they should be washed in order to keep them in tip-top shape. You want to make sure to keep dirt, grime and grease off the wrap. However, you will want to hand wash your wrap instead of running it through an automatic car wash with harsh brushes, as that could damage the vinyl.

8. Can A Vehicle Wrap Be Removed? 


When you want to change your wrap or sell your vehicle, the vehicle wrap can easily be removed. We recommend a professional removal, where we remove it the same way it was applied.

9. How Long Will A Vehicle Wrap Last? 


Vehicle wraps can last anywhere from 3-7 years depending on how they are cared for. Wrapped vehicles that are left in the sun or subject to repeated harsh weather could start seeing some wear and tear faster than other vehicles would.

10. Do You Have A Payment Plan?


For small businesses, a vehicle wrap can be a large upfront cost. We do offer financing for our vehicle wraps at the Lake of the Ozarks. For more information, visit: https://secure.quickspark.com/app.cfm?do=apply&vurl=w9yg4m9&vButton=LSF.

In fact, the Outdoor Advertising Association of America states that more than 95% of Americans are reached by media targeting vehicle drivers and passengers. Keep reading to learn more about growing your business through auto advertising in Missouri.

Vehicle Wrap ROI 


Vehicle graphics have a 10 times better return on investment than the next best marketing avenue.

When you choose to wrap your vehicle at Missouri's best vehicle wrap shop, you'll get an advertisement that will work for you 24/7, 365 for up to 5+ years!

Vehicle Wraps vs. Other Advertising


The Outdoor Advertising Association of America notes that auto advertising can be the most effective and efficient form of out of home advertising. It reaches more people at a lower cost per thousand impressions than any other form of advertising. You aren't going to find a better value in the marketing world. Take a look at what you are spending on other marketing materials, maybe it's a smaller upfront cost than a Missouri vehicle wrap would be, but you have to repeat those costs either each month, each quarter or each year to keep that marketing going.

Motorsport Wraps from ProDezigns

While fully wrapping vehicles in custom vinyl graphics may be a relatively newer concept, adding graphics to vehicles has been around for awhile. Early racing automobiles added numbers and markings to distinguish their vehicles during the races. That idea soon expanded to the more elaborate designs we have on vehicles and other things with wheels.

Motorsport Wraps 


Motorsport wraps are a slightly different than your typical custom vehicle wraps at the Lake of the Ozarks. Often times, instead of representing one brand, they're representing several. The styling and graphics are used to not only distinguish the vehicles through numbering, but also to promote their sponsors. They're used to attract publicity for everyone involved, the drivers, the teams and the sponsors. While some teams get creative with incredible custom graphics, other's keep it simple. Whichever category you fall into, ProDezigns is here for all your Missouri custom vinyl graphics needs. Take a look at some of the motorsport wraps we've done in the past below:

Caring for Your Vehicle Wrap

You just got your vehicle wrapped, and you're ready to start spreading the word about your business everywhere you go! How do you keep that Missouri custom vehicle wrap looking great though? Keep reading to learn how to care for your wrap.

Keeping Your Vehicle Wrap Clean 


The most important step in caring for your vehicle wrap is keeping it clean. If you're driving your vehicle everyday, it's going to be exposed to a lot of dirt, grime and pollutants, so you'll want to wash it at least once a week. When cleaning your vehicle wrap, make sure to use caution as to not damage the vinyl. Avoid taking your vehicle wrap through an abrasive automatic, drive-thru car wash. Hand washing your vehicle wrap is the best method. Be sure to spot clean tough spots, like bird dropping, tree sap, etc., as quickly as possible. Letting them sit for too long will make them harder to remove and could damage the vinyl. The best way to get the spots up is to let them soak in warm, soapy water to loosen the contaminant. After washing, be sure to rinse the vehicle completely and dry it with a microfiber cloth. Not only will cleaning the wrap make it last longer, but this vehicle wrap is a representation of your company, so you want it looking its best!

Avoiding Damage from the Elements 


While the vinyl used to make vehicle wraps is quite durable, you'll want to try your best to keep it out of the elements as much as possible. This includes sun, rain, snow, etc. Excessive amounts of time in the sun could degrade the wrap on the roof, trunk lid and hood. When parking outside is necessary, try to find a shady area. When possible, park your vehicle in a garage or under some type of covering. This way your vehicle wrap is protected from the sun's rays, hail, ice, etc. By limiting your vehicle wrap's exposure to the elements, you'll ensure a longer life and more bang for your marketing buck! In rare cases, if your vehicle wrap starts to turn brown or rust, it's likely due to prolonged exposure to acid. Many pollutants in the air contain acid, and when you don't regularly wash your vehicle wrap, you can experience some color change or rust. If this happens, it's advised you have that damaged panel replaced.

At ProDezigns, we not only want you leaving our shop with a shiny new vehicle wrap at the Lake of the Ozarks, but we want to provide you with the knowledge to keep it in tip-top shape! For more information on getting your vehicle wrapped, visit our website or give us a call at 573-392-0500. Our talented designers and installers are ready and willing to work with you to create a custom promotional solution for your business!

If you can drive it, ride it, pull it, fly it, or lift it, we can wrap it!
