vehicle wrap guide

Look around, there are good vehicle wraps and there are bad wraps. Many people often make the mistake of going with the lowest cost provider however, not every vehicle wrap company is the same. Take the time to understand what goes into the process so you can rest assured you don't get left with an inferior wrap.

When submitting a request for quote, be sure to have all of the information from your company before requesting a quote, especially if this is the first time you are buying a wrap for your business. You can download a few resources when starting your fleet wrap project below: 

Buying a Wrap from Visual Marking Systems:

Your wrap provider should be the knowledge expert and also an extension of your marketing team and provide material and printing solutions that meet your needs. There are often various certifications, experience, design, experts, material warranties, installation warranties, not to mention use & care guidelines to consider before you wrap the company fleet. 

Just like professional services for your home, a licensed electrician, plumber or other trades have certifications & licenses for their services or products. Vehicle wraps should be treated the same way. Often price differences in a quote are based on the raw material that can vary significantly in price. 

Lets face it, your fleet of vehicles cost a lot of money to own and operate and the image of your brand is vital to your brand's messaging. Take time understanding your unique business objectives, like deciding on what design to include and a budget and time line for each install. Also at this time, determine how durable and what conditions the vehicles will be exposed to at the same time, VMS can recommend different materials based on your specific requirements.

Professional Decal Applicators Alliance (PDAA) & Certification for Quality Graphics

I know, we live in the world of instant feedback and technology, however, there are many variables a wrap shop should consult with you before offering a price. Most GOOD wrap shops have either PDAA Master Certification or are 3M UASG Certified. However this doesn't always guarantee the job will be perfect, it does, however, offer the best industry training and other resources when evaluating different suppliers and application techniques.
