    4 Questions to Ask Before Designing Your Vehicle Wrap

    Before designing your wrap with a professional, it is important to ask yourself the following questions:

    1. What Type of Vehicle Will be Wrapped?

    Knowing the make and model of the vehicle you wish to wrap is crucial for determining the dimensions of the wrap and if there are any challenging corners or edges to account for. The cost of a vehicle wrap will also vary based on the vehicle, so knowing this beforehand will allow for a more accurate quote. A reputable vehicle wrap designer and installer may have templates for popular vehicles, cutting down on the amount of time required to accurately wrap your vehicle.

    2. For Business Wraps, Where Will the Logo be Placed?

    One of the main purposes of a business vehicle wrap is to display your company logo for advertising and brand recognition. That is why it is crucial to determine the locations you want your logo to be. Though it can be tempting to place the logo on a vehicle as many times as possible, it is typically more effective to utilize fewer and more strategic placements.

    3. Will Additional Text be Needed?

    For some companies, it can be difficult to determine what they do based solely on their logo. In these cases, it is best to have some supporting text or other design elements. An example of supporting text can be the various services offered, the company motto/slogan, or a few short phrases. In addition to this text, contact information should also be included to maximize advertising benefits.

    4. What Colours and Other Design Elements Will be Used?

    Colours and other design elements will vary drastically in terms of effectiveness depending on whether the wrap is for a personal or business vehicle. For example, sticking with your company colours and one or two supporting colours for a business wrap is a good way to accentuate your logo without taking attention away from other elements. Choosing a chromatic or multi-colour wrap for a business wrap often diverts attention away from important information, decreasing its effectiveness. In addition to colours, it is worth considering if other objects will be incorporated into the design. For example, a plumbing company may have water as part of their wrap, while electricians may have lightbulbs or wires.
