Did you know that vehicle wraps are one of the most economical marketing choices found in a brand’s toolbox? Thanks to the quick increase of this marketing option, there has been a surge in misinformation and myths that have been developed. This results in many brands questioning whether a certain vehicle can or can’t be wrapped, is it truly valuable as a marketing technique, or is it good or bad for the paint? To separate the truth from the lies, we’ve put together a list of six of the most common mistruths regarding vehicle wraps.

Myth 1: You can’t wrap a vehicle that’s leased


Lots of companies wrap leased vehicles and it’s common practice. Wraps bring out the vehicle underneath the brand and they can easily be removed prior to returning your vehicle at the end of a lease. To give you peace of mind, simply check your lease agreement with regards to wrapping beforehand.

Myth 2: A vehicle wrap will damage my paintwork


In actual fact, it can do the complete opposite and help your paint! Paint that is in high-quality condition and is fully cured allows wraps to prevent corrosion from water and dirt as well as UV rays. Vehicles are extremely valuable assets to companies so protecting these vehicles from damage is of great importance.

Myth 3: Adding window graphics are unsafe or illegal


You will be able to look through window graphics. They don’t suddenly black out your line of vision. They simply need to be printed on perforated window film as this has very small holes, which allows drivers to see out the window to the same extent of an uncovered window. The only time vehicle window graphics become illegal is when they are added to the front windscreen or driver or front passenger windows.

Myth 4: There is no new creativity


There is always the chance to bring about new ideas. You can make your vehicle wrap look like anything you want. Think outside the box and search around for inspiration or speak to our team about the latest design trends.

Myth 5: Vehicle wraps aren’t worth the investment


Consider this: once you have your vehicle wrapped, you no longer have a continuous media cost. You won’t need to pay for additional airtime on the radio or ad space since your vehicle will constantly deliver your message. Vehicle wraps always beat traditional paid media with regards to cost per impressions.

Myth 6: Anyone can wrap a vehicle, it’s easy


You need a professional to wrap your vehicle to ensure it looks good and you get the right message across. It’s important that you consider the company’s warranties and certifications before you commit.
