9 FAQs About ProDezigns Custom Vehicle Wraps

Have you thought about wrapping your vehicle, whether for business or personal reasons? You probably have a lot of questions about the process and about vinyl vehicle graphics in general. Below are the answers to some frequently asked questions about our custom vehicle wraps at the Lake of the Ozarks:

1. What's involved in a vehicle wrap? 


A: The vehicle wrap process is comprised of three phases. The first is the design phase, which includes getting accurate measurements for the vehicle and actual design of the graphics to be applied. The second is the production phase where the graphics are printed and then laminated to protect the vinyl from abrasions and UV rays. The third phase is installation where the vinyl is actually applied to your vehicle.

2. How long does it take to wrap a vehicle? 


A: The time it takes to wrap a vehicle will vary from project to project. In general though, vehicle wraps can be installed in 1 to 3 days.

3. Will a vehicle wrap damage the car's paint job? 


A: In most cases, vehicle wraps will not damage factory paint jobs. In fact, it will protect the factory paint. It is important to talk with the staff at Pro Dezigns and pre-test your paint job prior to wrapping with vinyl. Paint in poor condition may fail when vinyl is removed.

4. If a vehicle wrap is damaged, can it be fixed? 


A: Yes. You can normally have the damaged pieces or panels of your vehicle wrap replaced after your vehicle is repaired. You also do not need to redo the entire wrap if the damage is limited to certain areas of the vehicle. Talk to the staff at our Missouri vehicle wrap shop for more information.

5. Can vehicle wraps be washed? 


A: Vehicle wraps can be washed, and in fact, should be washed. However, the vinyl graphics should be hand-washed rather than ran through an automatic car wash to avoid damage. 

6. Can a vehicle wrap be removed?


A: Vehicle wraps can be removed, but we recommend professional removal. When you want to change your wrap or sell your car, the vinyl can be removed the same way it was applied.

7. How long will a vehicle wrap last?


A: Vehicle wraps can last anywhere from 3 to 7 years depending on the care of them. Wrapped vehicles that are left outdoors and in the sun a lot could start to see some fading before other vehicles would. 

8. How can the cost of a vehicle wrap be justified? 


A: If a vehicle wrap is being used for marketing purposes, there is not a more cost-effective advertising method available. Why not use a vehicle to its fullest potential, to gain you business!

9. How does vehicle wrap advertising compare to other forms of advertising? 


A: It has been proven that the cost per impression of vehicle wraps is less than other forms of advertising such as billboards, television, radio and yellow pages and even newspapers. According to The Traffic Audit Bureau for Media Measurement reports, vehicle wrap advertising can generate 30,000 to 70,000 daily vehicular impressions.

Advertising Phsycology: 4 Tactics to Try

What drives customers to purchase your product or service? Psychology could have something to do with it. Many successful marketers use psychology to appeal to consumers. In today's blog, your Missouri vehicle wrap shop offers a few psychological marketing tactics that you can try:

1. Use Emotion. 


Studies have shown that emotional and psychological appeals resonate more with consumers than if you just push the product features and functions. Focus on the benefits your product or service provides rather than just the features. By drawing an emotional response from your consumers, you're more likely to win them over. How will buying this product or service make someone feel? Consider designing your Lake of the Ozarks car wrap to include and image or phrase that shows a key benefit of your product!

2. Reposition Your Competition. 


Consumers have a limited amount of space in their brain when it comes to storing product and service information. Therefore, positioning is key for successful marketing of your product or service. Once an old idea is overturned, its relatively easy to slip a new one in there. Be aware that there's a difference between repositioning and comparing your product or services to those of your competitors.

3. Evoke Fear, Uncertainty or Doubt. 


Often times, businesses and organizations will use fear, uncertainty or doubt (FUD) to make consumers stop and think, ultimately changing their behavior. People are always afraid of the unknown and when used correctly, this psychological marketing tactic could be beneficial to your business. What will happen if said consumer doesn't have your product or service?

4. Promote Scarcity and Urgency. 


One of the best persuasion techniques could be invoking scarcity and a sense of urgency. Limited time offers or limited availability tend to create a buzz and make people want to buy now so they don't miss out. Early bird specials are also a great example; people will buy now to avoid having to pay more later. Consider having us wrap your wall or storefront windows with a limited time promotion - the vinyl can easily be removed when the promotion is over.

When you're thinking about your marketing strategy, keep the fact that psychology plays a big role in consumer decisions in mind. While some of these tactics can be implemented into your custom vehicle wrap at the Lake of the Ozarks, it's important to think about your marketing as a whole and how different pieces of advertising are working together to promote your business. When it comes to creating your wrap, our talented designers will work with you to create a custom promotional solution to meet your specific wants and needs. Give ProDezigns a call at 573-392-0500 to get started!

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

3 Tips for Designing an Eye-Catching Vehicle Wrap

Vehicle wrap advertising is growing as one of the top marketing avenues for businesses to use. The best vehicle wraps are those that grab your attention, whether it be through color or an image. In today's blog, ProDezigns offers 3 tips for designing an eye-catching vehicle wrap!

1. Choose the Right Color Scheme.


Big and bold is not always better. When it comes to vehicle graphics, you want to put some thought into it. What message are you trying to get across to your consumers? How can you best represent your brand? The colors you choose for your custom vehicle wrap at the Lake of the Ozarks are a key factor in how people react to your wrap, and your brand. To learn more about how color affects your advertising, check out one of our previous blogs titled, "The Meaning of Colors in Marketing." 

2. Select the Perfect Font.


Just like color, the font you choose plays an important role in the effectiveness of creating an eye-catching wrap. The most important point is to make the font easy to read. Most people that see your wrap are probably going to be speeding by on the road. In addition, you need to think about your target market - who are you trying to reach with your wrap? If your target market is female, you might go for a lighter, more elegant font. If your goal is persuade men to buy your product or service, you might go for something a little more bold and straightforward. You also want to think about what your providing, and what font matches well with product or service you're trying to sell. If you're trying to sell tools, you'll probably want to stay away from the fancy, curly type fonts.

3. Pay Attention to Placement.


Think about where people will see your vehicle wrap the most. If people are sitting behind you at the stoplight, they're going to see the back of your vehicle. If they are sitting beside you at the light or passing you on the road, they're going to see the side of the vehicle. These are the best two spots to make sure you have your information. You want to make sure that your wrap is designed so that someone understands your message in a matter of seconds. When you're advertisement is moving, people don't have a lot of time to take it all in. The placement of words and graphics on your vehicle is very important. The simpler you make your wrap, the better off you'll be when it comes to grabbing someones attention quickly.

When you hire ProDezigns, our designers will take care of all these details. We'll work with you to create a custom promotional solution that meets the needs of your business and your brand.

Marketing Strategy and Small Businesses

When you own a small business, you have a lot to think about. You don't have different departments to handle the different aspects of running a business. You have to handle it all. Marketing can sometimes be put on the back burner in all the hustle and bustle of business ownership. However, marketing and advertising is a vital part of a successful small business. In today's blog, Missouri's best vehicle wrap shop focuses on the importance of having a marketing strategy.

What is Marketing Strategy? 


Marketing strategy is the combination of marketing goals into one comprehensive plan. It involves a variety of advertising mediums working together to both increase awareness for your business and drive sales. The marketing strategy is the foundation of any good marketing plan. People are exposed to hundreds of marketing messages each day, so how do you make yours stand out? You need a plan and that plan starts with a strategy.

Why Do Small Businesses Need a Marketing Strategy? 


Marketing strategy provides focus and direction for your business. It can help you effectively combat competition and gain market share. Having a marketing strategy allows you to save time and money as well. Unlike big corporations, small businesses don't have a lot of money to spend on marketing and advertising. Instead of throwing advertising dollars at random ideas, having a strategy allows you to focus your marketing budget on a plan. Do your research on your target market, see what they are interested in and build your strategy around that. Marketing strategy improves the effectiveness of your marketing message, which leads to increased sales and profits.

Let ProDezigns Help You! 


Once you've come up with a strong marketing strategy, you have to decide how you're going to spend your marketing dollars to achieve your goals. One marketing medium to consider is auto advertising. Compared to other forms of advertising, mobile signage offers a great bang for your buck. According to the Traffic Audit Bureau for Media Measurement, vehicle wrap advertising can generate 30,000 to 70,000 daily vehicular impressions.
