The Easy Way to Measure for a Vehicle Wrap, Brooklyn, New York

Installing a vehicle wrap is a great way to promote your product or business. Vehicle wraps can help you deliver a strong branding message that makes a statement the moment you drive by. However, before you can fit your car or truck with a wrap, you’ll first need an accurate measurement of the body panels on your vehicle to know how much vinyl is needed.

How to Measure a Vehicle Wrap Properly

How to Get the Right Measurement

To get the correct measurements for your vehicle wrap, contact a sign company to help you. Using a tape measure, your technician will determine the overall length and width of the vehicle for the door handle, wheel wells, lights, door seams, bumper seams, body seams, and any other areas that the wrap will cover. The technician may also add extra vinyl to grab and fit the material around the edges. The vehicle dimensions will also be measured, so the image on the wrap isn’t skewed once installed. If you want your company logo incorporated in the design, you’ll need to send a high-resolution image of it to your technician, who will then adjust the picture to the right size, so it fits your vehicle perfectly.

How to Take the Right Photovehicle wrap

If you can’t find time to visit the facility before the installation, you can send photos of your vehicle with the correct measurements. Be sure to supply the technician with pictures taken from all sides. You should try to fit your vehicle well within the frame, so there’s room for graphic inlays, and photograph it straight-on to make it easier for the designer to lay out the design for you. From there, you’ll get a digital mock-up of the final design to show you what the end product will look like.



Proper measuring is crucial when it comes to vehicle wrap installation, so be sure to seek the advice of a trained technician to get the job done right.
