Trailer Wraps / Decals
Trailers provide even larger flat surfaces on their sides than box trucks. These sides can be used for advertising that is very similar to Billboard advertising you see on the side of a road or a highway. Big bold images, vivid full color graphics on trailers captivate the attention of passing vehicles as a trailer is hauled from one location to another.
Trailer Wrapping Options
Graphics options for trailers are exactly the same as those for box trucks except the size of graphics is much bigger. There are three main options:
Basic Vinyl Graphics
Some customers just want decals on the cab doors. This usually includes company logo, phone numbers, website, and a few bullet points about the company’s products on the vehicles doors.
Whereas, others may want a bit more coverage with graphics on the sides and the rear Rollup Door. This is the traditional and most common option for flat surfaced vehicles. Customers like to put their company information and a few bullet points about the company’s products on the box truck’s sides and the rear roll-up door. The large surface area of the trucks provides a huge billboard opportunity and the cost of advertising is very low because in most cases customers use just one or two colored vinyl lettering, which can easily last up to 7 years.
This is an affordable option that covers some parts of the sides and the back with decals, lettering and product pictures. In case of partial graphics only 25% to 50% of the vehicle is covered with a combination of vinyl text, pictures and logos. Because only some parts are covered with graphics, the overall cost of the graphics is much lower than a full wrap. Spot graphics, pictures and bulleted text are used to create an appealing theme for the truck. You can also include product shots, imagery, brochure covers and full color logos to get your message across.
When designed effectively, this option yields the same results as a full wrap, for just 40% to 60% of a full wrap price.
Advanced Trailer Wraps
This is an affordable option that covers parts of the trailer's body with graphics. Because the body is only partially covered, the overall cost of the graphics is much lower than a full wrap. Typical coverage and cost of a partial trailer wrap is 35% to 70% of a full wrap. The vehicle is covered with a combination of vinyl text, product pictures, logos, striping or a geometrical design to create an appealing theme for the pickup. When designed effectively, this option yields the same results as a full wrap, for just a fraction of a full wrap price.
Full Trailer Wraps
This option provides complete coverage on the truck's two sides and the back door. Some customers also opt to cover the small flat portion of the box in the front above the cab. These parts of the truck are completely wrapped with full color digital graphics printed on premium 3M Scotch graphics vinyl. Thus the entire vehicle becomes a full color moving billboard.
Full Wrap graphics on box trucks are becoming more and more affordable. With the cost of highway billboards rising and most billboards costing between $3500 and $5000 a month in rent, vehicle graphics are proving an extremely cost effective/ rent-free alternative.
Changeable Trailer Graphics
As a poplular alternative to graphics wrapping we also provide changeable Trailer Graphics. This option involves installing permanent light-weight aluminum tracks / frame on the permimeter of each side of the trailer. Once the frame is installed, our specially printed digital banner material is attached to this frame and stretched tight across the entire side of the 53 foot trailer. The final product looks just like a huge billboard.
Changeable Trailer graphics are less expensive compared to the full box truck wraps. They typically last for a couple of years and have a smaller life than adhesive based vehicle wraps / decals. Their greatest advantage is the speed and cost at which we can change the graphics on these frames. Once the frames / tracks are installed on the sides, a 53 foot trailer graphics can be switched out in approx. 3-4 hours for you.
