Install Eye-Catching Decal Works Quickly and Affordably in Chicago 

Custom graphics printed on self-adhesive PVC vinyl are applied to the bodywork of a vehicle to improve its look or help promote a business. Vehicle advertising is one of the most cost-effective ways of promoting your business and getting your brand seen.

Vinyl wraps, also known as decals, last for up to 7 years and come with the bonus of protecting your paintwork from environmental damage, such as light scratches, swirl marks, and bird droppings. With a vinyl wrap in place, your vehicle is more likely to retain its resale value.

Decal graphics can cover the entire vehicle or just chosen parts, such as the doors, hood, and read windshield. Once removed, even after many years, vinyl wraps leave no damage to the paintwork at all, in fact, you won’t even know that they were ever there!

Cost of decal works graphics

The exact cost of wrapping a vehicle is dependent on the following variables:

  • Size of vehicle
  • Areas of vehicle wrapped
  • Quality of brand used
  • Amount of vinyl used
  • Skill of installer
  • Complexity of design

Partial or full vinyl wrap?

A full wrap is when the entire vehicle is covered with vinyl, including the roof, rear fenders, bumpers, radiator shrouds, and even the front plate name if you so choose! A partial wrap is when only the most prominent parts are covered, such as the hood, doors, and rear windshield.  Vinyl wrap is costed by the square foot so it’s more affordable to partially wrap than fully wrap a vehicle.

A well-placed partial wrap can be just as impactful as a full wrap and you pay less for it. Many customers are content with only covering certain parts of their vehicles in graphics, especially if it’s used as both a company car and a family car.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best decal brands?

At Tinting Chicago, we only use the good stuff! After many years in the business, we only install two brands of vehicle vinyl; 3M and Avery Dennison. We believe these two brands offer our customers the best value for money. They even come with a 2-year manufacturer's warranty.

Do vehicle decals fade in the sun?

A graphically designed decal won't fade in the sun because the material is designed to reflect UV rays. You can expect a high-quality brand decal to last between 5 and 7 years before it needs replacing.

Are decals an effective form of advertising?

Data shows that vehicle decals are an extremely effective form of outdoor advertising. Just by driving to and from work, you can expect your vehicle to have 30,000 to 70,000 impressions a day, depending on where you live and work. There are very few mediums of advertising that are as cost-effective and long-lasting as decals.
