Hello San Jose
With all that wealth concentrated in one area, San Jose is a prime market for business advertising. So whenever your fleet vehicles are making their rounds across this city, they should 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 San Jose 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!
A Billboard Revolution
But if you’re considering a marketing budget in San Jose, are billboards really the best option? Not only are you one in a sea of billboards, but they are expensive. San Jose has one of the most expensive real estate markets in the country!
Meanwhile, you could wrap multiple fleet vehicles for the cost of one billboard and drive them around for YEARS. In fact, according to a recent report by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA), a wrap printed on a local fleet vehicle can generate 16 MILLION impressions each year.
San Jose Vehicle Wrap and Fleet Wrap FAQs
Do you 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.
What does it cost to paint a car versus wrapping it?
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.
What’s the benefit of a vehicle wrap instead of paint?
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!
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 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 San Jose 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 San Jose?
You can anticipate that your car wrap will last roughly five to seven years, depending on the finish and proper maintenance. In San Jose, you won’t need to worry about snow and too much rain damaging your wrap. However, you should still take steps to keep your vinyl wraps clean and out of the sun whenever possible.
5 Reasons Your San Jose 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.
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?
Vehicle graphics extend your services and brand’s voice to roads and neighborhoods across San Jose. 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 San Jose with over a million residents, car wraps are an unbeatable advertising strategy for businesses!
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.
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.
