Vehicle wraps are an excellent way to get your name out there and advertise your company’s professionalism. They can also last for many years, especially when installed with a strong adhesive bond and preserved with diligent maintenance measures. The latter largely depends on the skills and expertise of your car wrap service, but you can help with a few preparatory steps.
Planning to take advantage of this highly effective form of marketing? DTM Signs and Truck Wraps in Brooklyn, NY, recommends preparing your vehicle with the following tips:
- Photograph & Diagram the Vehicle: Before jumping into the design process, it pays to photograph your vehicle from all sides for future reference. Next, locate all of your vehicle’s natural joins—such as panels—as these will have a large impact on your design. Diagram both horizontal and vertical joins on your vehicle.
- Schedule a Consultation: Get in touch with the graphic design team at DTM Signs and Truck Wraps and start discussing your vehicle wrap ideas. Provide them with the photographs you took earlier, which will help them craft the best possible design and cut the wrap so it fits like a glove.
- Thoroughly Wash & Degrease: Before having your car wrapped, wash it thoroughly with soap and water, and let it dry for at least 24 hours. You’ll also need to degrease the vehicle to ensure a strong adhesive bond. You can do this with either a specialty degreaser or rubbing alcohol (isopropyl).
By following the above tips, you will ensure a successful application of your brand-new vehicle wrap.
