When it comes to vehicle wraps, size matters—the bigger the vehicle, the more you have to wrap, and the more you have to wrap, the greater your budget needs to be. Depending on your marketing budget and the size of your vehicle, you might choose partial coverage vehicle wrap over full coverage vehicle wrap. There are ways to make a partial wrap to feel like full wrap in less time and for less money than full-sized vehicle wraps require.
What are Vehicle Wraps?
A vehicle wrap is like a movie poster on your car. It’s an advertising medium that is seen by hundreds of thousands of people every day. When you drive your business vehicle, it becomes your mobile billboard, and adds value to your brand. A car wrap can change the entire appearance of any vehicle, turning it into an eye-catching work of art.
Use the Original Color of the Vehicle
The best way to pull off the illusion of full coverage vehicle wrap is to design your partial vehicle wrap using the original color of the vehicle and style it to look like a full-wrap. A good installer will be able to take care of these details for you. So if you’re going with an aftermarket wrap that’s lighter than the original color, for example, you want to work in some darker colors and textures into your design so that it looks like it was installed correctly from the factory.
Use the Unwrapped Part as Part of the Design
If you’re considering a partial coverage vehicle wrap, consider the following: A vehicle wrap design for an unwrapped part of your vehicle should look like it was meant to be that way. Rather than trying to make the unwrapped part of your vehicle look separate from the wrapped part, find a balance where both parts flow into each other.
Place the Wrap to Flow With the Curves of the Vehicle
When designing the wrap for your vehicle, you want to create an image that flows with the curves of the vehicle. It’s hard to do but with the help of professionals, you will be able to visualize how it will flow and where the cut lines need to be made.
