What do you expect us to say? Of course, we believe they are. That’s our business. Asking us if vehicle graphics are worth the money is like asking Pizza Hut if pizza is good food, or asking Chevrolet if their cars are roadworthy. Yes, we believe vehicle graphics are worth the money, and we’ll take it further—we think they pay for themselves and businesses that lack effective vehicle graphics lose money. But don’t take our word for it. We’re going to defer to a well-respected global organization, Avery Denison. Here’s what they had to say about the effectiveness of vehicle graphics.
