Vehicle and truck wraps are a great way to get your message seen and noticed but if they stay on too long it can cost a lot of money to remove them. Why? Wraps are typically made to last 3 to 5 years. More than that and the vinyl bakes onto the surface of the vehicle and can’t be removed in nice big areas but instead only comes off in tiny 1/2 inch chips. When this happens we use a vinyl eraser that doesn’t harm the surface paint while removing the vinyl but it still takes a lot of time and patience to get it done.
It looks like Ms. Smarty-Plants is really enjoying the vehicle we wrapped for The Water Conservation Garden. Vehicle graphics provide lots of exposure and brand awareness. With a good design you don’t need to wrap the entire vehicle to get impact you want. They become a moving billboard for your business letting future customers and clients see your message again and again!

Brand awareness and a beautiful design for The Conservation Garden.
Vehicle graphics for Nuera Group.
Nuera’s design includes six different vinyl colors which can make it a challenge to install but leave it to Christian to master the art of vinyl layering.
We recently completed a new truck graphic layout for a long-term customer, Mark, with SolidCold Refrigeration. He first came to us in 2003 to do the graphics for his truck with his logo in full color. The process to create his logo then was to use a combination of airbrushing, hand-cutting, and machine cutting on our plotter to get the gradient effect. It was a time consuming process but the end result looked great.
Original logo airbrushed and hand cut in 2003
Fast forward to today… We now produce all graphics for vehicles and trucks as digital prints on one of our three large format printers. The original design took about 3 – 4 hours to design, airbrush, cut, and prepare for installing whereas the digital printing and lamination took less than an hour.
Digitally printed logo in 2016
Digital printing allows us to produce full color graphics in the exact same way all the time and it is much faster and cheaper than hand painting and airbrushing. As a business, we have gone from working with up to 15 airbrush artists to now having four graphic artists who can produce so much more with the current technology. This allows us to pass on the savings in both time and money to our customers so they get a better product, consistently. We are always looking for ways to stay up-to-date with the latest technology to help your business look great.
Even if your on a tight budget signs are a must for a successful business! One of the most basic and affordable signs we make are magnetic signs that can be used on cars, vans, and trucks. They don’t have to be plain letters on white background either. Here is a great example of a pair of magnetic signs we did for East County Style. Good layout and design, custom cut and a full color print say class at an affordable price point. Visit our online store for a full range of products that will get your business noticed!
