Vinyl decals are a great way to advertise your brand or business on your vehicle. They are cost-effective, durable, and versatile. Vinyl Wrap Toronto, a vehicle wrap shop in Toronto, recently installed promotional decals on a Nissan NV200 for a client. In this blog post, we will walk you through the installation process and share some tips for getting effective promotional decals.
Step 1: Design
The first step in creating promotional decals is designing them. Vinyl Wrap Toronto’s client provided us with their logo and branding guidelines, which we used to create a design that would effectively communicate their message. The design included their logo, tagline, and website address. We used Adobe Illustrator to create the design and made sure it was properly sized to fit the Nissan NV200.
Step 2: Printing
Once the design was finalized, we printed it on 3M vinyl using a Roland VersaCAMM printer. This printer produces high-quality prints that are vibrant and long-lasting. We made sure to print the design with enough bleed to ensure that the decals would cover the entire vehicle.
Step 3: Installation
The installation process began with a thorough cleaning of the vehicle. We used a degreaser to remove any dirt, grease, or other contaminants that could prevent the decals from adhering properly. We then used a squeegee to apply the decals to the vehicle, starting from the center and working our way outwards. We made sure to smooth out any air bubbles or wrinkles as we went along.
Tips for Effective Promotional Decals
Keep it simple: Your promotional decals should be easy to read and understand. Avoid cluttering the design with too much information or graphics. Stick to your logo, tagline, and website address.
Choose the right colours: The colours you choose for your promotional decals should be consistent with your branding. Use colours that are eye-catching and easy to read from a distance.
Use high-quality materials: Cheap vinyl decals may save you money upfront, but they are more likely to fade or peel over time. Invest in high-quality materials like 3M vinyl, which are durable and long-lasting.
Consider the placement: The placement of your promotional decals is important. You want to make sure they are visible from all angles and not obstructed by other vehicles or objects.
Get professional installation: Professional installation is key to ensuring your promotional decals are applied correctly and look great. Attempting to install them yourself can lead to air bubbles, wrinkles, or other issues that can affect the appearance and longevity of the decals.
