 If you’ve been considering having your vehicles wrapped then here are some helpful tips on vehicle wrapping.   As more and more Blue Chip companies begin to recognise the value of total vehicle wrapping, as an effective form of advertising. Smaller business are now jumping on board as costs are coming down making it an affordable and cost effective way to get to the heart of your target market. Some business are exploring the idea of this fast-growing medium of vehicle wrapping as an effective advertising tool. Small businesses, large corporations, media outlets and others that want to attract attention are turning to vehicle advertising as a means to that end. But be warned: vehicle wrapping is not for the faint of heart. While some of the basic vehicle graphic application skills crossover to wrapping, the latter requires more sophisticated techniques. So if you are considering venturing into the bustling world of vehicle wrapping, then read on to learn more about what it takes to get started ­or if you even should! To wrap or not to wrap? Vehicle wrapping is fast becoming one of the hottest forms of outdoor advertising  with media houses actually buying the space on trailers from companies like Tescos. Your fleet of vehicles could be earning you more money than you think. Most large companies that want to advertise on their vehicles don’t have to be sold on vehicle wraps. But the high cost compared to traditional vehicle graphics will cause some individual operators and small business owners to cringe.There is no doubt that there is lot of value in wrapping vehicles as the traditional vehicle livery now looks out of date and its real only purpose is as a form of identification and not as a persuasive form of advertising. Chances are if you’re not considering wrapping your fleet then there’s a good chance that your competitors are, making them one step ahead of you. A good way to assess the effectiveness of wrapping then count the number of wraps you see during the day. If you find that you are turning your head every hour, then it may be time to begin considering wrapping your fleet. So where do you start? Design: The first place to start is the design which is also the hardest to get right. As if the design is incorrect then the whole wrap can be rendered useless.  Most wrapping companies will not get involved with the design as it takes too much of there time up and they are unlikely to be familiar with your industry and the style you like to work in. Although the design is the clever bit, designers who have not done it before might stay clear of vehicle wrapping but when it comes down to it its not out of there capacity.  As design agencies are becoming more familiar with vehicle wrapping  it is becoming easier to come up with an effective design. The Print: The best printing results come from high-end machines like HP Scitex and VuTek’s which are lower in resolution than machines like Mutoh and Mimaki but are a fraction of the price and faster. Resolution and Viewing distance is by far the most misunderstood concept involved in the printing and vehilce wrapping industries. What most people do not realise is that viewing distance goes hand in hand with the resolution and size of an image. It is not always nessasay to have a bus wrapped with near photographic quality print which is 720dpi if your viwing audence is going to see it from 5 meters away and at 65mph!

The client wanted to keep the printed building wrap artwork as simple and tidy as possible so all the fixings had to be hidden. A subframe was attached to the scaffolding to allow us to wrap the mesh print up and around and then tensioned via bungees. The artwork was digitally printed on the HPXL1500 and heat welded together on a 14 meter Millerweld Master. The installation was undertaken by a specialist rope access team and was completed in just one day.
