Do You Need a Wrap or Decals?
The difference in cost between a wrap and plotter cut decals can be substantial. Before making a decision on a full wrap think about what you want to accomplish and whether strategically placed decals would do what you want and need.
What Size is Your Vehicle?
Obviously, a compact car will be less than a box truck, and a full wrap on a 53-foot trailer will be more. However, much of the cost depends on how you answered the previous question. A full wrap on a work van can cost more expensive than decals on a 53 foot trailer.
Is Your Vehicle Damaged?
A damaged vehicle can incur more cost. “There’s a misconception that vehicle graphics, especially a full wrap, can “hide” damage to a vehicle’s body. Minor damage such as fading and very small scratches may be covered and concealed, but not damage. Rust, dents, and scrapes will show through the graphics and cause problems.” — Can Vehicle Damage be Applied Over Body Damage?
How Many Vehicles Are You Wrapping?
Wrapping one or two trailers will more than likely be more per trailer than wrapping 50 with the same design. One time costs such as design, set up, and consultation are the same regardless of ordering 10 wraps or 100. The difference is that set costs are divided by the number of vehicles. For example costs of $1000 divided by 10 vehicles is $100 per vehicle while $1000 dived by 100 vehicles is $10 per vehicle.
Do You Have Print-Ready Art, or Do You Need Design?
Although TKO Graphix offers very competitive art fees, providing art, compared to contracting our team to design graphics from scratch, will make a difference in cost. Regardless, the best practice is to hire an experienced vehicle graphics designer. Most reputable vehicle graphics providers, including us, offer design services.
