Where Can I Buy Car Wraps?

Where Can I Buy Car Wraps?

Car wraps make a big impression on customers as well as a positive impact on sales for a company. However, not many people know where to buy car wraps for their fleet vehicles. The easiest way to buy car wraps is to visit an experienced graphics company (such as Installed Graphics) that handles the entire vehicle wrap process including the design, printing and installation of the car wrap by experienced wrap installers.

An equally valid way to buy car wraps is online. It is important to know the overall goals and specifications for the wrap before making a purchase. Is the vehicle wrap being used to brand a business or is it being used to promote a sale or a product? In addition, will wrap installers place the vehicle wrap on the same type of vehicles or different makes and models? Your design options might be limited if you are not a graphic designer since ordering a car wrap online often does not include graphic design services. Plus, do you have the skills to install the car wrap once it is delivered or will you need to find someone to handle that task for you?

Find a graphics company that offers customer consultations for online customers to get the best design possible. Also, find an online company with a clearly defined design, printing and installation process to make sure your vehicle wraps are professionally designed, printed and installed.

Vehicle Wrap Printers Will Design, Print & Install

Here are the reasons it is important to find vehicle wrap printers to design, print and install car wraps:

  • Having a car wrap installed on a vehicle is not as simple as placing the vehicle wrap on top of the fleet vehicle. The car wrap needs to be trimmed once it is placed so it will properly fit on the vehicle.
  • The design is key to a successful car wrap because it needs to contain the desired information but not be so busy that other drivers on the road cannot process the information.
  • It is best to find one company that will design, print and install the vehicle wrap because there will be more quality control steps along the way instead of multiple hands, and companies, handling the vehicle wrap installation process.

Professional Car Wrap Installers Notice The Little Details

It is best to choose an experienced company because professional car wrap installers notice the little details when it is time to install the vehicle wrap. Professional car wrap installers know how to make sure the car wrap does not cover the car handles or the side mirrors of the car. In addition, professional car wrap installers know where the gaps are located on the design of a car and they make sure the design of the vehicle wrap takes those gaps into account so the car wrap looks smooth in appearance when it is placed on the vehicle.

Are Vehicle Wraps & Graphics Tax Deductible?

Are Vehicle Wraps & Graphics Tax Deductible?

Vehicle wraps and graphics are a great advertising tool that brand a business through colorful graphics and enticing text. Some businesses are not sure about spending the money to have vehicle wraps and vehicle graphics placed on a vehicle unless they are able to deduct the vehicle wrap installation on their taxes. Are vehicle wraps and vehicle graphics tax deductible? The answer is a solid “maybe”.

A tax adviser can let a person know if a vehicle wrap on a personal vehicle is tax deductible. The tax adviser has first hand knowledge about tax laws and can guide a person in the right direction. Don’t have a tax adviser? Review IRS Publication 463 (Chapter 4) for an in-depth look at car allowances and deductions for personal vehicles as well as the distinction between personal use of a vehicle and business use of a vehicle. Simply putting vehicle graphics on a personal vehicle does not count as tax deductible if the car is still used for personal matters. IRS Publication 535 (Chapter 11) says a vehicle wrap is likely tax deductible as an advertising expense for a business if it clearly advertises the brand and promotes the business on a vehicle associated with the company. We are not tax experts so, as mentioned earlier, consult with a tax adviser for more in-depth advice.

Vehicle Graphics & Wraps For Advertising Your Business

Vehicle graphics and vehicle wraps advertise your business in multiple ways:

  • A vehicle wrap is a mobile billboard that is able to get exposure with multiple audiences each day because the vehicle wrap is able to travel to different parts of town on a daily basis as opposed to a traditional billboard
  • Vehicle wraps can deliver important information about a business in easy to understand text and graphics such as the business name, logo and contact information or social media platforms
  • Vehicle graphics and vehicle wraps can be updated to promote a specific event and sale or they can keep delivering the same information to increase the branding of the company

Vehicle Wrap Installation, Printing & Design Services

Vehicle wrap installation, printing and design services should be handled by an experienced and knowledgeable vehicle wrap design and installation company. Vehicle graphics need to walk a fine line between being colorful and eye-catching and being so busy with too many colors and too much text that the marketing message cannot be easily understood in the limited time another driver has to view and process the information on the vehicle wrap. Ask the company you have in mind for examples of actual vehicle wrap installation, printing and design services they have handled in the past so you will have a better idea of the results you can expect from a vehicle wrap.
