First Steps: Contacting a Sign Shop for a Quote
To start, it’s important to get detailed information on the vehicle. Make, model year, wheelbase, roof height and trim levels. Additionally it’s important to get straight on pictures of all sides of the vehicle. Bringing the vehicle to the wrap shop will allow the designer and installer to identify all the features of the vehicle that may interfere or aid in design. Inspecting the body for damage, paint issues and other issues is important as well.
Many shops will work from predefined templates, but they are not always 100% accurate. That’s why it is so important to take the vehicle to the shop. We take detailed measurements to insure an accurate design and successful installation. It will also help the designer and installer determine the best approach for design and production that creates the perfect end product.
Planning the Wrap or Graphics Package:
With the customer visiting the shop, it’s the perfect time to discuss their business. Knowing about the culture at their company, what they do, what they need from a wrap helps our designers steer them in the right direction.
Additionally, we can look at wrap styles, colors and other features that the customer would like to add that best reflects their business. This part of the process can significantly reduce design time and costs. There’s nothing more frustrating for the customer and designer to go through many iterations of designs. It’s worth the time to review other wrap designs to help the customer visualize the possibilities as well as understand the capabilities and limitations.
The Design & Review Process:
It’s time to be bold. Our design team will take the colors, styles, text and features discussed and make a bold and beautiful design custom for your vehicle. Some vehicles offer a greater opportunity to get large like vans and box trucks. We take advantage of that space. All the while we pay attention to ensure the wrap does not get too complex or add too much information. By keeping the design simple and easy to understand, we ensure ease of memory. Remember, your wrap acts as a moving bill board. Drivers on the road only have a few seconds to capture their attention, so make the brand and message immediately recognizable and memorable.
After we complete a design we create and submit a proof for the customer to review and approve. As a customer be aware that once you sign off on the design, you assume responsible for the full content. So take your time and go through the design in detail. Spelling, contact information, colors etc. are all components that you’re approving.
A lot of effort and detail goes into a wrap design and the time put into the design pays off in the end.
