Billboard and other forms of advertising are becoming prohibitively expensive so more and more companies are embracing Vehicle Graphics as a viable alternative. Despite its apparent simplicity, vehicle graphic advertising has not only proved to be highly successful but is cost-effective as well. The reason for this is not hard to appreciate. A vehicle emblazoned with a graphic is mobile advertising at its best. A graphic on a vehicle reaches a larger number of people. When the vehicle is on the move, the graphic is perused by other motorists as well as pedestrians.
And when the vehicle is parked it is still sending out its silent message. A static advertisement like a billboard for example is viewed only by those who walk or drive past. Often these could be the same people who use that route every day as it may be on their route to work so the message is restricted to a set number of people. A static advertisement will stimulate interest when new, but will soon lose its significance as people who see it every day begin to look at it as part of the scenery. But a vehicle graphic is quite different. The vehicle visits new areas every day allowing new people to read its message. A truck, bus or commercial vehicle, for instance, rarely uses the same route unless it is on a regular round. This means that more and more people are exposed to what its graphics say. A vehicle is generally less expensive than many forms of advertising, and more durable. What this translates into is that a vehicle graphic reaches more readers for less investment.
Vehicle graphics may be used on a bus, car, truck or van which is covered in a thin, synthetic adhesive that carries copy, advertising a company, its product or service. The adhesive advertising copy may cover only parts of a vehicle as in a decal, or in certain cases the vehicle as a whole as in a wrap. The front windshield is left clear so the driver's vision is unobstructed. The advertising copy has the name of the company, contact information and a USP.
A viewer of a vehicle graphic has only few seconds to absorb the text and graphics of an advertisement. To be successful, good advertising copy must not only have the name and contact details but must contain something that will bait the reader into contacting the company.
Getting a catch tag line or bait into this advertising copy, which has to be read and assimilated within seconds, is a true test of ingenuity for the graphics designer.
Vehicle graphics can be in the form of adhesive decals or a vinyl wrap which covers the whole exterior of the vehicle. Either way, the advantage is that the decal or vinyl is removable if the owner decides on a change. The paintwork after removal remains undamaged. Vehicle decals can easily be applied without any particular expertise, but a vinyl wrap must be applied by a trained professional.
