Fleet Graphics: Get that Professional Look and Boost Your Brand

Vinyl wrap is a thin, self-adhesive PVC film that can be applied to a fleet of company vehicles to create a professional uniform look, as well as promote a business around town. Graphics on fleet vehicles are an affordable and powerful way to gain greater brand exposure than your competitors.

Commercial fleet graphics can take the form of partial vehicle wraps or full vehicle wraps. Bold designs and well-placed vinyl lettering or spot graphics are installed quickly and affordably without damaging the paintwork in any way.  Fleet cars that have been wrapped in vinyl often retain their retail value better than those that aren’t because their paintwork is effectively protected.

Got a fleet of vehicles you’re interested in wrapping in vibrant colors?  Call us at Tinting Chicago at 773-455-0467 or 312-212-0493.

Are fleet vehicle graphics effective? 

Studies prove that vehicle graphics are an incredibly effective form of outdoor advertising.  The average vehicle receives 30,000 to 70,000 impressions a day driving to and from work. With that in mind, imagine how many impressions a whole fleet of cars could receive?

Fleet vehicles are essentially mobile billboards that can advertise your brand around town 24/7. Best of all, high-quality vehicle graphics last for between 5 and 7 years, meaning the investment is minimal when longevity is taken into consideration.

Full wrap versus a partial wrap

When installing a vehicle wrap on your company’s vehicles, you need to decide whether to apply it to the whole of your vehicle or just parts of it. Full wraps are applied to the entire bodywork of your vehicle, including the bumpers, fenders, and side mirrors. A partial wrap only places graphics on the most prominent areas of a vehicle, such as the doors, hood, and rear window.

As a vehicle wrap is costed by the square foot of vinyl used, a partial wrap is cheaper than wrapping the whole of your vehicle and often just as effective.
