On average, there are 234 sunny days per year in Dallas, making it one of the sunnier cities in the country! With so much sunshine, people are always out and about – and typically in their cars. Dallas is a “two car per household” city – among the most cars per capita of all major cities in the U.S. So what’s our obsession with nice weather and lots of cars?

All that sunshine -and all that traffic- combine to make Dallas the prime market for fleet wrap vehicles. Whenever your fleet vehicles are making their rounds they’ll be pulling double duty as successful mobile billboards!

Meanwhile, if you’re NOT adding vehicle wraps to your fleet, you could be losing out on a valuable opportunity to create brand recognition and market your business to potential customers throughout the Dallas metro area. Our expertly installed vehicle wraps look great, last well, and will turn your fleet vehicles into valuable marketing tools. You don’t want to miss out!

Car Wrap vs. Paint – Which to Choose?

When you want to change your vehicle’s appearance, you can choose between car wraps or car paint. Both options allow you to outfit your vehicle with a new look, but there are some major differences between them.

Vehicle wraps offer a few key benefits compared to painting, such as lower costs and better quality, just to start. Vehicle wraps have so many other advantages that make them an ideal choice for car owners and fleet managers alike, whether you’re looking to save money or showcase a one-of-a-kind design.

Along with choosing wraps for their better quality, the affordable price tag is likely to sway you, as well. High-quality vehicle wraps provide an attractive finish for a reasonable cost, much lower than what you’d pay for a premium paint job.

Generally, paint jobs range between $3,000 and $10,000. Alternatively, car wraps typically cost $2,500 to $5,000, depending on vehicle size and customizations. And a low-cost paint job may not last as long as a vinyl wrap, and the repair costs can add up.

But the biggest factor, especially for fleet vehicles, is the flexibility of car wrapping. When you want or need to change the look of your car, vehicle wraps have a distinct edge over paint jobs.

If you choose to paint your car, you will need to repaint the entire vehicle to get a new look. Not to mention it’s often difficult and expensive to capture specific designs or effects -like your business logo- with paint.

Meanwhile with car wraps, unlike paint, you can easily swap out older vehicle wraps for new ones. This allows you to update your branding or style as needed on your fleet vehicles. Simply peel off the older wrap and apply a new one!

Dallas Vehicle Wrap and Fleet Wrap FAQs

Still have questions? We’ve got you covered! Our team at National Car Wraps is always happy to answer any questions about car wraps. But let’s start with these frequently asked questions!

What material is used to wrap vehicles?

Vinyl car wrap material is a blend of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) polymer and various additives that make it flexible, resistant to ultraviolet light, and add color. These ingredients are mixed before being cast onto moving sheets, where they are baked and cured.

A little more simply put, vehicle wraps are made of such vinyl with the addition of adhesive backing. They come in all colors and finishes, and you can fully customize them to print your business logo, information, and unique graphics.

Do you wrap windows and roofs?

We can! When it comes to full wraps (when we cover the complete vehicle) we can wrap roofs and windows. Though we typically don’t wrap the roofs of larger vehicles because they can’t be seen. It’s an added expense you don’t need!

Instead, we add a “brow” to make it look like the roof is covered. This provides vinyl coverage about a foot or a foot and a half onto the roof. Beyond that, no one can see it anyway! However, we will often wrap the roof of smaller vehicles to maximize space and aesthetics.

As for windows, these wraps are typically printed on perforated vinyl to allow visibility and be street-legal. This material allows people outside the vehicle to see the exterior image, while still providing complete visibility to those inside operating or riding in the vehicle.

What if I don’t need a full or partial wrap, but something smaller?

If you’re operating on a tight budget and you have a lot of vehicles to customize, spot graphics might be for you! These are essentially vinyl decals that can be fully customized and placed almost anywhere on your Dallas fleet vehicles.

For example, you may opt to get your logo and contact information installed on the liftgates of your fleet trucks so anyone driving behind you can see. This is an easy and affordable option!

How long does a car wrap last in Dallas?

You can anticipate that your car wrap will last roughly five to seven years, depending on the finish and proper maintenance. In Dallas, you typically won’t need to worry about snow, but humidity and rain can potentially be damaging to your wrap. In case of extreme weather (heat or rain), simply take steps to keep your vinyl wraps clean and covered whenever possible.

Will the wrap damage my vehicle’s paint job?

Not at all! The car wrap will even protect your original factory paint job. However, if the vehicle paint is not in good condition to begin with you could have some issues. For instance, if the paint is chipping or flaking off, then the wrap may pull off the chipping paint when it is removed.

5 Reasons Your Dallas Fleet Needs Car Wraps

Better Than Billboards

Unlike other forms of advertisement that interrupt a potential customer’s activities -and views- wraps do not. This non-aggressive, environmental advertising attracts attention without disturbance. Better to attract flies with honey than vinegar, right?

Additionally, prospective customers will easily spot your message without feeling intruded upon, or substantially distracted from their activities. Consumers often respond best to advertisements that do not take an “in-your-face” approach and instead allow them to come to you.

Meanwhile, billboards are costly, obtrusive, and losing popularity with consumers. If you drive by a billboard, you spot it for just a second. But a wrapped vehicle driving on the road with you is visible much longer. Even more so when it’s parked nearby!

And a parked wrapped vehicle has something a billboard doesn’t – a stamp of approval. When you see a business’ fleet vehicle parked outside a neighbor’s home, you assume they provide great service. Why else would your neighbor hire them?

Broad Reach

Vehicle graphics extend your services and brand’s voice to roads and neighborhoods across Dallas. When driving along the highways, through towns and cities, or even sitting in traffic, you are sure to attract the attention of more than 15,000 consumers every day.

For example, in a big city like Dallas, car wraps are an unbeatable advertising strategy for businesses! Your reach is as broad – or as specific – as the market you select.

High ROI

Because of the high amount of impressions your wrapped vehicle garners, vehicle wrap advertising often results in a much lower “cost per impression” return than other marketing tactics such as social media or traditional marketing.

Not to mention that most repetitive advertising also comes with a repetitive cost. But investing in a vehicle wrap (or a fleet of them!) today means returns on your investment for years to come. And THAT is savvy marketing.

Recession-Proof Advertising

After the market crash of 2008, many businesses pulled back on their advertising budgets. However, businesses with fleet-wrapped vehicles continued to gain traction over their competitors who did not have wrapped vehicles at their service.

You too can recession-proof your business with an affordable investment in fleet wraps today!

Protect Your Vehicles’ Values

Vinyl wraps actually protect the paint underneath! That’s right, an added benefit of a vinyl car wrap is that it is a protective cover as well as a stylish and impactful one.

You can protect your fleet vehicles and their original paint against chips, dings, scratches, and other things that could damage the surface or impact resale value down the road. And with a high-cost business item like a truck or van, protecting every penny of value is important for your bottom line!

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does it Cost to Wrap a Fleet of Vehicles?

Generally, a typical wrap on a small truck can start at $1,500. If you’re looking for a full wrap on a larger truck with multiple customizations, it could run you up to $5,000. The only way to know for sure is to get an estimate! You can click our Get A Quote button to get started. 

A major determining factor in how expensive your fleet vehicle wraps will be is the complexity of the application. Increased labor or complexity adds to the cost of having your wrap installed. 

Similarly, a four-door crew cab will likely require more material than a two-door cab, so the price will probably also be higher. However, you can cut costs if you opt for a partial wrap on a larger vehicle.


How Do I Coordinate Fleet Wraps Across Multiple States?

Fleet managers are often tasked with the labor-intensive job of coordinating consistent fleet vehicles across the country. National Car Wraps make this process simple. 

First, you’ll connect with our experienced design team to develop the best vehicle wraps and graphics for your needs and budget. Our experienced designers understand the best ways to maximize vehicle ad space to create clear messaging. 

Next, we will print the design on high-quality vinyl. Some fleet managers have their own in-house wrap team who will take over from there, or we can ship the wraps to our network of installers in the markets where your vehicles are. All you need to do is get your vehicles to the local drop-off, then wait for installation!


Can You Help Design Business Fleet Graphics?

Yes, we absolutely can. Designing graphics for a 3-D object like a vehicle differs from designing for a traditional billboard, flyer, or web graphic. 

Our design team can help you start from scratch or modify existing designs and logos to fit best on the vehicles in your fleet. We’ll help you maximize impact and budget to get your desired results.

How Do You Design Fleet Wrap Branding For Various Sized Fleet Vehicles?

Some fleets have a variety of vehicles. For example, you may have sedans, vans, and even trailers that all require consistent wrapping and branding. 

Our design team has all the experience necessary to adapt designs to fit your needs. Consistency and quality are the keys to fleet branding success, and we know how to get that done.

What’s the Difference Between Full and Partial Wraps?

Despite their appearance, most vehicle wraps are not manufactured as a single piece. Instead, they come in several pieces, each designed for different panels and parts of the vehicle body. 

A full wrap covers the entire paint job on every portion of the truck, whereas a partial wrap only covers a portion of the vehicle, usually the rear and/or the tailgate.

As you might expect, a full wrap requires more material than a partial and additional labor. Therefore you can assume a higher price point when considering a full wrap.

Some businesses also opt for smaller graphics, also known as decals, to get their messaging across in a more cost-effective manner. We are equipped to help with whatever your needs are! Contact National Car Wraps for a quote today
