New York Vehicle Wrap and Fleet Wrap FAQs
Got questions? We have answers! Whether you’re a business owner with a fleet, or an individual looking to dial up the design of your vehicle, 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 so as to allow visibility and be street-legal. This material allows people outside the vehicle to clearly see the exterior image, while still providing complete visibility to those inside operating or riding in the vehicle.
What are partial vehicle wraps?
If you’re looking for a great return on your investment, partial vehicle wraps tick the box. Partial vehicle wraps can provide eye-catching designs that blend seamlessly into the look of your vehicle. All without looking like a budget design!
Partial vehicle wraps are an affordable way to deliver your company message to audiences around New York while keeping costs low. This is an especially effective option if you have a tight budget but multiple vehicles in your New York fleet.
What if I need something smaller?
Have you considered spot graphics? These vinyl decals, typically called “spot graphics” are an affordable way to market your business -without wrapping your entire vehicle.
The decals can be cut to any shape and can be placed almost anywhere on your vehicle. Spot graphics are a low-budget way to create strong branding by displaying company logos and contact information without looking cheap or unattractive.
How long does a car wrap last in New York?
You can anticipate that your car wrap will last roughly five to seven years, depending on the finish and proper maintenance. In New York, may have to contend with some snow and rain, though you don’t have to worry as much about heat and UV rays damaging your wrap.
However, you should still take steps to keep your vinyl wraps clean and out of harsh weather whenever possible.
How do I maintain my vehicle wraps in New York?
Many things can cause damage to a car wrap. The most common trouble-makers are the sun, rain/snow, and dirt. Car wraps can also be damaged by sharp objects and harsh chemicals.
In New York, you may come across various weather scenarios. Rain and dirt are likely to be your biggest concerns. If you drive through snow, mud, or salted roads, just give your car a rinse so nothing sticks to your wrap.
To keep your NY fleet wraps looking their best, park your vehicles in the shade, under covered parking, or in a garage when not in use. Since dust and grime can accumulate quickly, give your wrapped cars a rinse every other week and spot clean any particularly nasty gunk like bugs or bird droppings.
3 Reasons to Choose Car Wraps vs. Paint
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 better quality than paint jobs. Especially if you’re going for a specific logo or design. Since car wraps can be printed, you can create literally any design. Meanwhile, paint jobs are more straightforward and are best for solid colors or very basic enhancements.
Meanwhile, a high-quality vehicle wrap is going to last longer and be easier to repair or replace than a budget paint job. If you want to change the look of your vehicle with paint, you’ll need to shell out major bucks or deal with fading and chipping.
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!
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.
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.
