Here is our latest project with the Matte Black vinyl.
We used ORACAL 970RA. A 4 mil super cast material with air release technology in 60" wide. Because the material comes in 60" wide comparing with the matte black of 3M ( 48" wide ) we were able to complete the job seamless on the entire car. The car does look like it was recently painted with matte black.
Vehicle Graphics - Concept, Terminology, Marketing
The term vehicle wrap has come to encompass a variety of industry terms, all representing a similar end product. Auto Wraps and Car Wraps are common terms. Graphics is a general term that describes this product. More specifically, Vinyl Graphics, Vehicle Graphics, Custom Vinyl Graphics, Vinyl Vehicle Graphics, Fleet Graphics, and Vinyl Car Graphics all represent and relate to our vehicle wrap product. Before vehicle wraps, the closest thing was either paint or decals. Many if not most commercial vehicles incorporate some form of vinyl decals, vinyl window decals, lettering or basic branding onto their exterior - but a full vehicle wrap takes it to a whole different level. Truck Graphics are common practice to advance the branding of a company. Truck side advertising and Truck Fleet Wraps are also becoming more common in the marketplace.
Vehicle advertising allows a vehicle to serve as a low-cost mobile billboard seen everywhere a vehicle typically goes. The retention rate of this medium is extremely high and the targeting potential of this type advertising is unmatched. Vehicle wraps combine the key elements of effective advertising and marketing into one convenient and proven solution.
Targeting: Drive in and around your target market; neighborhoods, retail areas, strip malls, etc. Change markets with ease. Target specific events; trade shows, sporting events, concerts, college campuses, etc.
Branding: Build brand recognition with everyone who sees your wrapped vehicle(s) and raise your company's profile. Differentiate yourself. A bold design will generate a positive response.
Promotion: Vehicle advertising allows a vehicle to be promoting everywhere a vehicle typically goes; local roads, highways, parking lots, malls, restaurants, shopping centers, schools, and more. Promote your company all the time; while you drive, work, transport, deliver, shuttle, and while you're sitting in traffic or parked.
