Are vehicle decals for you? Find out below
We have the answer right here. Our experts at Vinyl Wrap Toronto have been working in the industry for years and that makes them more than qualified to answer this question for all of us. To start with, some of you may not know, Vehicle decals are basically stickers that go on your vehicle. These stickers could be any graphic or text of your choice. Depending on the purpose, car decals can save you a fortune. Our installation team has done countless decal jobs for a lot of our happy customers. And they have a lot to share from what they’ve learned so far.
1. Why would you even want decals?
The answer to this question can vary, you could get decals to promote your business/brand or you could get decals to give your vehicle a personalized look. Our team has done decals for both purposes.
You’d be surprised how much of a difference it can make in your vehicle’s appearance, just because you put a few decals on it. If done right, decals have the ability to make your car stand out in the crowd. And if you want to advertise your business, our team is here to help you get your logo and slogan onto your vehicle. The beauty of promoting your brand through vehicle decals is that vehicles are always moving, and by association so will your business advertisement on it.
2. The most cost-effective way to advertise:
Without a doubt, vehicle decals are one of the most cost-effective and long-lasting ways of advertising your business. Where a standard full wrap job will cost you a fortune, a decals job will cost you only roughly about 25% of a wrap job. Our team deals with businesses looking to advertise their brand onto their vehicles constantly and some people don’t want to spend a lot of money on a car wrap because they think it is beyond their budget. So, in situations like those, we suggest our customers get vehicle decals, a fast, easy, and reliable way to get those logos and slogans onto your vehicle.
You have full freedom to decide which graphic you want on your car and our team will make sure it becomes a reality. With just a small amount of money, you can have your vehicle advertise your business for years.
3. Types of Decals:
Before you make up your mind about making any customizations to your vehicle, it is probably best to know what the market has to offer. We deal with perforated decals which are partially transparent. These are your best option if you’re looking to get decals on your vehicle windows. How great it is to be able to see through a window that has decals on it? If the ability to partially see-through is not your concern, then we suggest the standard vinyl decals.
These decals last for years and give off a solid look. There’s another kind of decals available in the market, Magnetic Decals, but we personally don’t recommend them as often. This is because these magnet decals have the risk of getting peeled off by the wind if your vehicle is going over 80km/hr speed. So, there’s a huge concern when it comes to safety.
4. Which parts of the vehicle can you put decals on?
Although it is possible for our team to put the decals on any surface of the car, it is not always a great idea. If the decal you’re putting on your vehicle lands on an uneven surface, it could come off looking a bit unsettling or not as intended. An uneven surface can make your decal look distorted/disoriented.
So, our installers at Vinyl Wrap Toronto suggest that you get the decals on flat surfaces of your car, where there are no vehicle contour lines. The ideal place to get decals on a vehicle is but is not limited to, the hood, sides, windows, or any other surface that seems flat and big enough to house the decal. Here’s a list of the best locations to put your decals on a vehicle.
5. Long-term effects of vehicle decals:
One of the great things about getting vehicle decals is that once you get them, you can rest assured for years before they start to lose the battle against external environmental factors. And when that happens you’re probably going to want to take them off. It is at that moment you’ll realize that the paint under the decals has remained as if it hasn’t aged a bit but the paint on the rest of the car has faded over time.
So, be prepared to see a tan line on your car when you decide to take the decals off. Having said all that, it is normal for the paint to fade over time and most people who get decals are aware of it.
