A vinyl wrap is an excellent way to keep your branding top of mind while promoting your East Sussex business in a non-aggressive and cost-effective way. But before you invest in your first vinyl wrap, here are the answers to some of the questions you may want to ask.

1. What is vehicle livery and how is it used?

Vehicle livery is the process of applying graphics to high-quality vinyl before carefully using it to wrap your vehicle. This can be an all over body wrap with imagery and text or a half wrap that displays your branding and contact details.

2. How long will it last?

A premium quality wrap can last up to eight years if properly installed and well cared for. Once your wrap is in place, leave it for a week before you clean the vehicle so the adhesive has a chance to take. It’s estimated that up to 3,000 people will see your vehicle during the week, creating costs per thousand impressions of as little as 4p.

3. Can I design it myself?

You can but it might be better to talk to a professional car graphics designer. It can be difficult to get the placement of the various design elements right without the proper software, and that means you’ll have wasted your money when the wrap is finally printed. An experienced designer will help you organise your design and make it as effective as possible.

4. Will vehicle signwriting boost my brand?

Definitely. Branding a vehicle helps to spread the word about your business and builds brand recognition. Keep your branding consistent with your vinyl wrap and you’ll boost brand identification and keep your business top of mind for the future.

5. What are the benefits?

This type of advertising is eye-catching, cost-effective and unique. The blend of great aesthetics and a strong message make this one of the most effective forms of advertising. And because it’s non-aggressive your customers won’t tune out. Businesses opt for vehicle livery to reach their target market directly, quickly and effectively.

6. Will it damage my paintwork?

No, in fact, a premium full body wrap can actually protect your vehicle from everyday damage like scrapes and dings. That means when you come to resell your vehicle in the future it will actually retain its value thanks to the well-maintained bodywork.

7. Can I use a pressure washer?

You can, but under gentle pressure and with a wide spray nozzle. Your best option is soap and water the old fashioned way, being careful around any edges so you don’t damage them and cause them to lift.

8. Can I wax my vehicle?

Wax can break down the vinyl, causing it to peel and crack. Try keeping your vehicle out of direct sunlight and washing by hand for best results.

9. How do I remove it?

Your wrap needs to be heated and then gently removed. It’s better to have a wrap professionally installed and removed to avoid issues.
