So, you have a car, truck, van, bus, boat, RV, motorcycle, etc. and you want to know how much it’s going to cost to cover some or all of it with graphics? The answer is…that depends. Vinyl lettering starts at $4.50 sq. ft. installed. Full color decals and wraps are $9.50+ sq. ft. installed. Lettering on a van or truck can be a few hundred dollars, while a full wrap can be a few thousand. The various types of vehicle graphics are explained below.
Vinyl Lettering: This is best when you just want basic information displayed, like your company name, address, phone, website, etc. The artwork can be simple (only one or two colors) or fairly complex (multiple colors, outlines, shadows, etc.) Pricing is based upon the surface area covered, number of vinyl colors and complexity of the artwork.
Decals: This is often done in combination with vinyl lettering. We can digitally print any image (in full color and contour cut in any shape). This can be your logo, a photo of your work or just about anything. Pricing is based upon the number and size of the decals.
Wraps (or partial wraps): This is like wallpaper that covers the vehicle panels (doors, fenders, trunk, hood, sides, etc.) A wrap is a digital print that covers most, or all, of the vehicle. (We don’t wrap body hardware such as bumpers, mirrors and door handles.) We use 3M’s best cast wrap material and over laminate – and print with eco-solvent inks. The vinyl is cleanly removable for up to one year and has an eight year manufacturer’s warranty. Your vehicle must be clean and free of rust. 3M also now offers solid color wrap material for those people who just want to change the color of their vehicles. Pricing is based upon the total surface area covered and the type of vehicle being wrapped.
Artwork: If you have production-ready artwork for your vehicle graphics, there is no charge for us to size the graphics. However, if we are creating the design and/or setting up the artwork, we charge $75.00/hour for this service.
If possible, it’s always best to bring your vehicle to our shop so that we get measurements, take photos and review your artwork/design. You can email us your artwork at firstname.lastname@example.org or bring it with you. We prefer jpeg, pdf, eps or ai files.
Feel free to call or email us at anytime for help or more information.
