If you are looking to use vehicle wraps to promote your business, one of the basic decisions you’ll have to make is choosing between full or partial vehicle wraps. From cost to impact and design, here’s what you need to know.
What Are Vehicle Wraps?
Vehicle wraps are digitally printed sheets of vinyl placed on the surface of a car. As we’ll see below, there are two basic types of vehicle wraps: total and partial.
A vinyl wrap is an effective advertising solution that promotes your business 24/7 and creates a dynamic impact that reaches your customers wherever they are.
In addition to being durable and cost-effective, vinyl wraps also help protect your vehicles from the sun, dirt, and other agents that may fade or scratch automotive paint.
All types of vehicles can be wrapped, including:
Full Vehicle Wraps
Full wraps cover all the exterior parts of a vehicle, from hood to trunk.
This is the go-to choice if you want to turn your vehicles into mobile billboards that command the attention of your audience.
A full wrap is also a good alternative if the color of your vehicle happens to clash with the colors of your brand. Applying a full wrap allows you to conceal the original color without having to pay for costly repaints.
It’s worth noting that when it comes to big vehicles, the roof usually isn’t covered because people are not able to see it. Even in these cases, we still talk about full wraps.
Partial Vehicle Wraps
As their name suggests, partial wraps cover only part, or some parts, of a vehicle.
Partial wraps tend to be less expensive than full wraps, so this may be the option for you if your budget is limited.
However, don’t get the idea that this just a money-saving alternative. If you are creative and bold, a partial wrap can be just as stunning as the most impressive full wrap.
For example, just picture a partial wrap that depicts a snake coiling itself around your car. Impressive, right? In the world of visual communication, originality beats size every time.
Full or Partial Vehicle Wraps? Wrapping It Up
Many factors come into play when deciding which type of wrap to use on your vehicles.
The impact you intend to deliver is one of the main aspects to consider. Full wraps tend to be more impressive than partial wraps, but a partial wrap can also turn heads with the right design strategy.
A full wrap covers most of the surface of your car, which is convenient if the color of your vehicle is different than that of your brand. With a partial wrap, on the other hand, the original paint of your vehicle is still visible for the most part.
