Vehicle Signs FAQ’s
Van signs are an affordable and effective way to promote your business. First impressions last, and that’s why it’s worth investing in great van signs, that will last for many years to come.
How much are van signs?
This is by far the most common question we get asked, unfortunately there is no straight forward answer. It very much depends on your expectations. Prices vary greatly between some cut vinyl text, and a partial full colour wrap, our team are on hand to discuss your requirements and expectations.
Some of the information that we will require to accurately prepare your quotation:
- Vehicle Make & Model of your vehicle
- What information you’d like going on your vehicle
- Budget, so we can manage your expectations
- Any existing branding or logo’s
- Any colours you’d like
Our team will discuss your ideas and budget, to provide you with a bespoke solution that provides value for money. If you’re struggling for inspiration, we often suggest browsing through our previous work on social media.
Design & Artwork are often overlooked when requesting vehicle signs. Even the most simplest of van signs involve one of a designers creating the layout on the computer, to provide you with a proof before we start production, and creating it in a suitable format to cut the material.
We usually include studio time in our original quotation for vehicle graphics, however where there are extensive choices or multiple changes are requested extra charges may be made.
We are often asked to provide a variety of ‘ideas’ when someone is not sure of their budget or what they want. We are happy to spend time with you, planning and designing your vehicle graphics. However this is charged separately from your van signs.
How long will it take?
This the second most common question we get asked. It takes time to design and produce your van signage. We won’t start producing anything until you have approved the final design, and we’ve received your deposit. Simple van signs can typically be produced and installed in a couple of days, most van signs can be installed within 5 working days of approval. Installation times vary, from an hour for some simple signage, to several days for full wraps.
There are many steps in creating your van signs:
- Initial Meeting
- Design & Artwork
- Material Selection
- Ordering non stock materials
- Production & Manufacture
Here’s a short video showing the steps involved producing van signs.
Do I have to bring my van to you?
We have a fully equipped, dedicated installation facility at our premises in Salford that can accommodate most vehicles. Unless stated otherwise on your quotation, our prices include installation at our premises. This often proves to be quicker, as we have everything on hand, and are not at the mercy of the weather.
We do travel across the country installing vehicle graphics when required. Our staff are fully insured, and we can provide a local collection & delivery service.
Do you provide a warranty?
Vinyl has come a long way, it is much more complex than just sticky back plastic. There are varying grades from low cost, short term, internal vinyl, through to more expensive cast vehicle wrapping films, with advanced adhesive technologies, requiring specific installation processes.
We always use the correct level of vinyl for your chosen design. Our installers have many years experience and frequently undergo training to expand their knowledge.
This combination enables us to offer guarantees on all the van signage we install.
