Vinyl Wrap Toronto was hired by Humblewood Homes to design and install commercial decals on their Ford F-350 Crew Cab. The project involved creating a custom design that showcased the company’s logo and contact information and installing the decals on the truck’s doors, hood, and tailgate. The vinyl selected for the project was Avery Dennison Printable Vinyl, which allowed for high-quality printing and cutting of the decals.
- Client consultation and design brief: The design process begins with a consultation with the client to understand their vision for the project. The client shares their design preferences, brand guidelines, and any specific requirements for the project. Based on this information, Vinyl Wrap Toronto creates a design brief outlining the work scope, design goals, and timelines.
- Digital design mockup: Once the design brief is approved, the Vinyl Wrap Toronto design team creates a digital mockup of the commercial decal design using specialized software. The digital mockup allows the client to see a preview of the final design and make any necessary changes or adjustments.
- Final design approval: After the digital mockup is reviewed by the client, any requested revisions are made, and a final design is approved. At this stage, the client signs off on the final design, giving Vinyl Wrap Toronto the go-ahead to print and cut the decals. The final design approval also includes the selection of the Avery Dennison Printable Vinyl that will be used for the project.

Printing & Cutting
- Preparation of the Avery Dennison Printable Vinyl for printing: Before the Avery Dennison Printable Vinyl can be printed, it must be prepared to receive the ink. The vinyl is cleaned to remove any dust, dirt, or debris that may interfere with the printing process. The vinyl is then laminated with a special coating that helps the ink adhere to the surface of the vinyl. This process is essential to ensure that the final printed design is clear, sharp, and vibrant.
- Printing of the vinyl design: Once the Avery Dennison Printable Vinyl is prepared, it is loaded into a specialized printer that can handle large-format printing. The printer is calibrated to ensure that the colours are accurate and that the design is printed at the appropriate resolution. The printer uses UV-resistant ink that is designed to withstand exposure to sunlight and harsh weather conditions. After printing, the vinyl is allowed to dry and cure before being cut to size.
- Cutting of the vinyl to size and shape: After the vinyl design is printed, it is cut to the appropriate size and shape using a specialized cutting machine. The cutting machine is programmed with the dimensions of the design, and it uses a sharp blade to cut through the vinyl material without damaging it. This process ensures that the decals are precise and accurately sized to fit the surface on which they will be applied. Once the vinyl is cut to size, the excess material is removed, and the decals are ready for installation on the Ford F-350 Crew Cab.
- Vehicle preparation: Before the vinyl decals can be applied to the Ford F-350 Crew Cab, the vehicle must be prepared. The surface of the truck is thoroughly cleaned to remove any dirt, debris, or wax that may interfere with the adhesive properties of the vinyl. The vehicle is then dried completely, and the surface is inspected for any scratches, dents, or imperfections that may affect the application of the vinyl.
- Application of the vinyl to the vehicle: Once the vehicle is prepared, the vinyl decals are applied to the surface using a specialized technique. The decals are carefully positioned and aligned, ensuring that they are straight and level. The adhesive backing of the vinyl is removed, and the vinyl is slowly and carefully applied to the surface of the truck, taking care to avoid wrinkles, air bubbles, or creases. A squeegee or similar tool is used to press the vinyl firmly into place, ensuring a smooth and even application.
- Finishing touches and inspection: After the vinyl is applied, any excess vinyl is trimmed away, and the edges are carefully sealed to prevent the vinyl from peeling or lifting over time. The decals are inspected for any imperfections, and any necessary touch-ups or corrections are made. Once the installation is complete, the vehicle is inspected one final time to ensure that the decals are properly applied, and the surface is free of any bubbles, wrinkles, or other defects. The final result is a stunning vehicle with eye-catching commercial decals that help promote Humblewood Homes’ brand and services.
