3 Tips for a Successful Vehicle Wrap

Vehicle wrap advertising is becoming increasingly popular due to the value compared to other forms of advertising. If you're thinking about auto advertising as a way to promote your business, we've got some tips for you! Keep reading to learn a few key things involved in a successful custom vehicle wrap in the Jefferson City, Columbia and/or Lake of the Ozarks areas.

1. Hire a Professional Vehicle Wrap Company. 


While it's technically possible to wrap a vehicle yourself, the outcome probably isn't going to be what you expected. You're likely to find bubbles in the vinyl and the wrap may not last as long as it should. There's a skill that goes into properly wrapping a vehicle, and therefore, it's best if you hire a professional installer, like the ones at ProDezigns. We can wrap just about anything from your average vehicle to boats, aircraft, motorcycles, large trucks and more. We are Missouri's best wrap shop - just ask our clients!

2. Put Effort Into the Design. 


Your vehicle wrap is a reflection of your business. Rather than quickly throwing an idea together, take some time to think about the goals you have with your vehicle wrap. What do you want to achieve by wrapping your vehicle? Make sure you include some text, such as contact info and a slogan, but keep in mind that less is more. People will only have a few seconds to view your vehicle wrap when driving down the road. You want to catch their attention and get your message across quickly. Our experienced designers will work with you from concept to completion to ensure you're satisfied with the message your wrap is portraying to your prospective customers.

3. Take Care of Your Wrap. 


Once the wrap is installed it's important that you take care of it, just as you would your car. The wrap will need to be washed regularly, preferably by hand, as to not damage the vinyl. By cleaning off debris, oil, gas, etc. from your Lake of the Ozarks vehicle wrap, you'll be able to increase the life of the wrap. You should also consider storing it out of the sun so there's less chance of the color fading over time. If your wrap does happen to become damaged, often times we can replace just that panel instead of having to re-wrap the entire vehicle. 

When it comes to auto advertising for your business, trust none other than ProDezigns! We have the knowledge and the experience to create a custom promotional solution in the form of custom vehicle graphics at the Lake of the Ozarks. Give us a call at 573-392-0500 to get started today!

5 Common Misconceptions About Vehicle Wraps

While vehicle wraps aren't a new concept, there are still a lot of misconceptions about them floating around. Keep reading to learn about some of the most common misconceptions that people believe. ProDezigns is here to set the record straight with the truth of the matter.

1. Custom Vehicle Wraps are Too Expensive. 


While the upfront cost may seem like a large expense, your vehicle wrap will last for 5+ years if properly maintained. Spread the cost out over those years and consider the number of impressions you can get from auto advertising, and a custom vehicle wrap from ProDezigns is hands down the best bang for your buck when it comes to marketing. In addition, we offer financing to help you pay for your vehicle wrap in manageable monthly payments.

2. Vinyl Graphics Damage the Vehicle's Paint. 


One of the most common misconceptions about vehicle graphics is that the vinyl application damages the factory paint job on your vehicle. However, just the opposite is true. If your paint is in good condition to begin with, the vinyl covering actually protects the paint from scratches and fading. When you're ready to remove your vehicle graphics, they can be removed just as they were applied, revealing a vehicle that looks as good as new!

3. A Vehicle Wrap is Difficult to Maintain. 


Maintaining your Lake of the Ozarks vehicle wrap is honestly not much different than maintaining your vehicle itself. You'll want to clean the vehicle wrap regularly to prevent damage from debris, gas, oil, etc. When cleaning your wrapped vehicle, you'll want to make sure to wash it by hand and never take it through an automatic car wash, as the brushes can damage the vinyl. You'll also want to try to park the wrapped vehicle in shaded areas to avoid too much sunlight which could possibly lead to fading.

4. You Can't Put Vehicle Graphics on Windows. 


While you can't put vinyl vehicle graphics on the windshield, you can wrap the rear side windows and the rear windshield. There's a perforated vinyl with tiny holes that allows you to look out from inside the vehicle just as if there were no window coverings. Those looking at your windows from the outside would see a completed graphic, advertising your business.

5. Vehicle Wraps are Difficult to Remove. 


While we recommend professional removal of your vehicle graphics, they can be removed just as easily as they were installed. When you're ready for a new look or ready to sell your vehicle, just bring it to us and we can remove the graphics. With just a little heat, the vinyl will lift off the vehicle, leaving behind no residue. As mentioned above, the paint underneath will look as good as it did when the vinyl vehicle wrap was applied.

Now that you know the truth about vehicle wraps, are you ready to get started? At ProDezigns, we'll help you create a custom promotional solution in the form of eye-catching vehicle graphics at the Lake of the Ozarks. Give us a call at 573-392-0500 to get started on your vehicle wrap design today!

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

4 Advantages of Auto Advertising

Have you been considering a Missouri custom vehicle wrap to advertise your business? What are you waiting for? The advantages of vehicle wrap advertising are undeniable. Here are just a few of the advantages auto advertising has over other forms of marketing:

1. You Don't Have to Pay for Space.


When you choose auto advertising as your marketing medium, you don't have to pay for advertising space. No more renting billboard space or purchasing a spot in a magazine. The space you are using is a vehicle that you already own! Once you purchase the vehicle wrap, you own it as well. There are no monthly fees (unless you choose to finance your wrap) and you can do with your wrap as you please.

2. You Can Stretch Your Advertising Dollars.


When compared to other advertising opportunities, vehicle wrap advertising gives you the best bang for your buck. Not only do you get more impressions at a lower price point, but a vehicle wrap can last anywhere from 3-5+ years. A one-time investment today will keep your advertising dollars working well into the future. How many other forms of advertising can say the same?

3. You'll Increase Reach and Brand Awareness. 


Passively reach your customers and increase brand awareness just by driving your vehicle around day to day. Statistics show that people notice, and often remember, vehicle wrap advertising. There's no better way to reach a large amount of people in a short amount of time than with a custom vehicle wrap from ProDezigns! With that kind of visibility, you're sure to see an increase in sales.


4. You Can Take Your Message Anywhere.  


Since your advertisement is your vehicle, you can take that marketing message anywhere you go! This allows you to market your product, service or brand in areas that wouldn't be possible by any other means. Not only can you market to those driving down the street, but you can also use your vehicle as a sign out front of your storefront or as a billboard when you park in a parking lot. Reach a variety of different people by taking your marketing just about anywhere.

Get started on your custom vehicle wrap at the Lake of the Ozarks today by calling 573-392-0500. ProDezigns is Missouri's BEST vehicle wrap shop.

5 Design Tips for Creating Awesome Wall Graphics

Wall graphics can easily turn a boring room into something amazing! They can be used to draw customers into a certain area of the store, offer relevant information about products or services or just make a room look really awesome. Whether you're looking for promotional wall graphics or just want to add some life to a room, ProDezigns has you covered. Keep reading for a few tips on designing your vinyl wall graphics at the Lake of the Ozarks.

1. Pick the Perfect Imagery. 


Think about why you want to display a certain image in your office, store, etc. Does the graphic fit your mission statement or enhance your tagline? Does it offer a clear call to action? For example, a recycling company might choose imagery that communicates protecting the earth & it's natural resources. An investment firm might choose graphics that encourage people to open an account and start saving money. If you own a sports bar, maybe you want the wall art to look like a crowded stadium. With so many graphics options available, it's important that you choose something that makes sense for your company. Choosing a random image just because you like it could end up confusing your customers.

2. Choose the Right Placement.  


Wall graphics can grab the attention of a variety of people. While some wall wraps may be designed to grab the attention of your customers, others may be aimed at educating your workforce. If your goal is to reach your employees with the message in your wall graphics, good placement might be in the break room. If you want to reach customers and prospective customers, you might consider placement in the lobby or a conference room. A progressive mural that spells out the history of your company appeals to both audiences and might be well placed in a hallway. 


3. Avoid Too Much Text. 


How much text is too much text? Think about the time that the prospective viewer might spend in the area where the wall graphics will be. Do they have time to stand/sit there and read a bunch of text? In most cases, less is more when it comes to text on your wall wrap. If you feel the need to write a lengthy call to action, then the image you chose isn't doing it's job. Keep your call to action short and sweet, and let the image to the talking.

4. Target Your Market. 


What is your target demographic? If you're looking to appeal to an older generation, a loud and bold wall wrap might not be the best option. However, if you're targeting a younger demographic, those bright colors and bold images would be great to grab their attention. Is there a certain profession or type of person that you want to target? You want to make sure your wall graphics appeal to the people you're looking to reach. The goal is for the wall graphics to attract the type of customers that are best for your industry.

5. Make the Graphics Relevant. 


The great thing about wall graphics is that they are removable, just like with our Missouri custom vehicle wraps. If you're promotion changes or something else happens that makes the graphics irrelevant, you can take the wall wrap down and replace it with something new. You also don't have to wrap an entire wall; we offer partial wall wraps just like we do with our vehicle wraps. Make sure that your wall graphics aren't outdated, otherwise customers might wonder what else about your business is outdated.

If you're interested in custom wall graphics in Missouri, give us a call at 573-392-0500. At ProDezigns, we can wrap just about anything. From vehicles and boats to walls and floors, we can create the perfect promotional solution that fits your individual marketing needs.

The ProDezigns Vehicle Wrap Process

At ProDezigns, we strive to give our clients the highest level of service, satisfaction and personal attention to detail with every project we do. From concept to completion, our award winning designers work closely with you to create a high-impact, custom promotional solution that best suits your individual marketing needs. Today's blog focuses on our process. If your hire Missouri's best vehicle wrap shop, here's what you can expect:


Creative Brief


Every Lake of the Ozarks vehicle wrap project we do starts with a creative brief, after you've reviewed and accepted our quote. This is the time for us to learn about you and your business, and get some understanding of what you want your wrap to accomplish. We'll take a look at your marketing goals and offer our expertise to create the best possible promotional tool, that you can take with you everywhere you go!

Vehicle Details


If we have wrapped your model vehicle before, we will have a wrap template on hand. However, if not, we will need to build a template first. In order to do this, we would need photographs of your vehicle, clearly showing every side. We also need the measurements of the vehicle. You can stop by our office and we can take the measurements for you.

Design 


Our talented, in-house graphic designers will work with you to bring your concepts to reality. They will also ensure that the message conveyed in the design accurately and appropriately reflects that of your company, product or person. When the design concept is complete, we will create a full color proof of how the wrap will look once applied to your vehicle. You will then have the opportunity to either approve the wrap as is or tell us what changes you would like made to the wrap before moving on to the production phase.

Production


Once you're completely satisfied with the design of your Missouri custom vehicle graphics, our in-house printing department and staff will ensure accurate transfer of the images through our state-of-the-art print server. Our large format printers are fitted with Eco-friendly, top of the line ink systems to ensure the best color schemes and resolution in the industry for your brand, while not hurting the environment. The difference of this enhanced resolution is unmistakable. Our material is the best of quality in the business, a premium cast vinyl film designed specifically for long-term, outdoor use. It has excellent conformability to irregular surfaces, and superior outdoor performance and durability. 

Installation 


Our staff of professional, certified installers will carefully align the vinyl wrap panels to ensure proper fit. They will then apply them to the vehicle. Installation times vary according to the complexity of the project. However, a basic vehicle wrap will take about 1-3 days to install. Due to the nature of the adhesive vinyl and the complex curves to which it's applied, we add in an extra 24 hours after the application to allow for the film to fully adhere to the vehicle.

If you're ready to get started on your custom vehicle wrap in Jefferson City, Columbia or Lake of the Ozarks areas, give us a call at 573-392-0500. Let the marketing experts at ProDezigns help create a grand visual impression for your company, service or product, that drives business right to your door. When you consider the options, a custom vehicle wrap from ProDezigns is a great investment and a great way to increase awareness of your company!

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