How Much Does a Vehicle Wrap Cost?
In general, a full wrap costs between $1500 to $4500. A partial wrap, wrapping only parts of the car such as the hood or roof, prices anywhere from $300 up.
What is a car wrap?
A car wrap is a large decal or vinyl graphic that is applied directly over the car’s original paint. Applying the wrap allows you to be able to change your car’s appearance in a very short period of time. When done right, wraps will last for a long time, saving you money in the process.
Applying a car wrap consists of three phases. Phase one is the designing phase, where we get accurate measurements of the vehicle and for the graphics that will be designed and applied to the car. Phase two is the production phase, where the graphic is then printed and laminated to the vinyl, protecting the graphic from any abrasions or UV rays that could, in turn, cause the graphic to fade over time. The final phase is the installation phase when the wrap is applied to the car.
What is the average cost to wrap a car?
As we mentioned before, in general, a full wrap will cost $1500 to $3500. Anything less than a full wrap is considered a partial wrap, and those typically cost $300 or up. That cost will vary depending on the design that you want printed, the amount of wrap that will be used, as well as the time it will take to wrap the car.
Custom Wraps vs. Commercial Wraps
A custom car wrap has a design unique to the individual driver. With improvements in technology, there’s no limit to wrap designs. Whether you are looking for something big and bold, or something a bit more subdued, custom wrapping can get it done.
You might be more familiar with commercial car wraps—companies with multiple wrapped vehicles, each with the company’s logo and design. Having a unified appearance as your vehicles drive around your local areas will only benefit you more as you present a professional, attractive advertisement to your potential customers. The cost for wrapping a fleet scales based on how many vehicles you want wrapped. Often vans and large trucks will cost more because of the increased surface area.
What are the benefits of using a car wrap for your business?
Having a well-designed, attractive car wrap will help your brand stand out, as your company’s vehicles will draw the attention of the other drivers on the road. There are many benefits from using a car wrap for your business. Some of the best include mobility, being a more cost-effective option than traditional radio or print ads, and the ability to reach a wider audience.
Another benefit of using a car wrap for your business is non-aggressive advertising. Car wraps attract attention without disturbing people, unlike radio or print ads that interrupt a person’s reading. Your potential customers will be able to easily spot your message without significant distraction from what they’re doing. And it’s no secret that customers respond better to advertising that doesn’t take an “in-your-face” approach. Many people enjoy the striking vehicle wraps and don’t mind the advertising.
But are they really effective? The statistics can speak for themselves. According to ARD ventures, “individual vehicle advertising generates between 30,000-70,000 daily vehicular impressions,” in the US today. And unlike static billboards, the messages on outdoor mobile billboards have a 97% recall rate according to RYP & Becker Group.
Is it better to get a full or partial car wrap?
Whether you choose a full or a partial car wrap, both will be effective ways to advertise. Cost-wise, one option is cheaper than the other, but both can be beneficial to getting your brand noticed and drawing attention to your company. While the full car wrap will provide a striking image for potential customers to remember, partial car wraps can be considered more eco-friendly as they use less material than a full wrap (and still be an attractive design that stands out). Should you need to tweak the design, it would be easier to do so with a partial wrap, and it will be easier to alter a single section without affecting the whole car.
How much does it cost to remove or alter a wrap?
There might come a time when your brand is changing or you are switching out a car. When that happens, how much might it cost to make those changes? The cost can vary, as with the initial application of the car wrap, but in general, it can cost between $300 to $1000 to remove a car wrap. The average cost is around $500 for most jobs.
What should you look out for before getting a car or vehicle wrap?
Before you get a car wrap on your car, you should check its condition, as that can affect the performance and success of the wrap. If your vehicle requires a new paint job, it would be better not to get a wrap yet. Wrapping over old peeling paint will eventually show through the wrap, costing you more money in the process to get it fixed.
