Wrap Industry Secrets

There are some things in the wrap industry that some wrap shops just do not want you to know. Picture This Wraps and Graphics wants to be completely open with our clients so we are here to reveal some of those wrap industry secrets!

1. Many companies do not respond to requests for quotes

A couple of months ago I called 5 companies and of the 5, not a single one sent me a quote. Now, a couple did give me a price range and promise to give me a proper quote but, even after a month and a couple of follow-ups I did not receive anything. 
If a company can not get back to you about quoting their job, it is a little hard to imagine they will be responsive in other aspects of doing business with you. At Picture This Wraps and Graphics, it is important to us that if we promise you a quote, you get a quote! 

2. One Quote does not fit all!

Wraps are custom just for your vehicle so many times when you visit a website, you will not find wrap pricing! We price your wrap on many different variables including whether you get a printed wrap or a solid color, if you need a design, the complexity of your vehicle, the needed coverage, and several other factors. For this reason, we cannot list our prices on the website. If you are ready to get started on your wrap, give us a call so we can get you a proper quote!

3. Your wrap will not look the same in 10 years

If you are getting your wrap from us, you probably live in the South! That means your vehicle gets a lot of sun during the day. Your vertical surfaces get less sun than the horizontal surfaces of the vehicle and because of this, your graphics will fade quicker. That being said, your graphics should still last several years! 

4. Not all vinyl brands are the same!

We use mainly 3M brand vinyl as we find it to be the best of the best! With so many brands of vinyl out there you really want to make sure that you know what your wrap shop is using on your vehicle. If they are not using a reputable brand of vinyl it could fail or worse, ruin your underlying paint job! 

5. Laminating your wrap will save you money in the long run

While you could initially save a little bit of money by asking us not to laminate your wrap before installation, you will have to spend more money in the long run! Lamination helps protect against UV rays and scratches. Without laminating your wrap, your graphics become more susceptible to damage and need to be replaced MUCH sooner! We laminate all of our prints before installation so they look good as long as possible

Simple, Yet Effective!

We know a vehicle wrap is an investment you take seriously and that you want to get your money’s worth. A lot of times this mentality can take clients down a path that will take away from the effectiveness of a wrap. Sometimes customers believe that adding a lot of text, a bold pattern, or just lots of information in general will give them more bang for the buck. Here at Picture This, we have found that simplicity is key to the most effective wrap! The key elements that you want in your wrap are your logo, your company’s name, your phone number, and to make sure that your audience can very quickly tell what you do.

The above wrap is an excellent example of this execution!

By avoiding adding a lot of text, your logo and the other essential elements of your wrap can be made bigger! Also, by keeping the background a solid color or a muted pattern, instead of a bold or rude pattern, you are better able to read the text your wrap does need.

We know that getting a wrap is an important investment for your business. Come in today and talk to an expert about getting the most effective wrap for your dollar!

Importance of looking professional

We all know that looking like a professional business makes a difference in how our current customers perceive us. However, did you know that not looking professional can have an adverse effect on getting new clients? Studies show that 90% of all purchasing decisions are made subconsciously. On top of that, over half of consumers report that they have avoided a business because it looks like it would be dirty. Most telling though is that 95% say that the exterior of a business has a lot to do with if they will shop there. This is so important to remember when it comes to how you present your company through advertising. If your vehicle wrap is the first thing your potential client sees and it leaves a bad taste in their mouth, since most purchasing decisions take 2.5 seconds, you may have sold yourself out of a sale. Maintaining a professional looking wrap is an easy way to make sure your potential clients know they can trust your business to take care of their needs. After all, how could they trust a company with their things, when the company cannot take care of their own things? Interested in knowing more? Call Picture This Advertising now to learn more!

Picture This, Our Wrap Process!

At Picture This we have a specific standard for treating our customers. Our wrap process allows us to effortlessly maintain that level of customer service. When we start working with a client, we sit down and discuss their business and advertising needs. One thing we pride ourselves on is advising our customers on what we have seen to be best, even if that is a much cheaper option. We are here to help our customers make the best decision so that their company can grow! After we discuss what they need, we get into the wants of the design with them. After we know what they need and what they want, we pass that information to designers that have been tested in a wide variety of styles by our president in order to find the designers that represent the level of quality work we want to produce. Our designs, or as we call them mock-ups, then go back to the client. We offer multiple revisions on our mock-ups so if you are not happy with the first look, you will not pay more to get the design where you want it! Once scheduled for install, get excited! The day before install you hand wash the vehicle and drop it off on your install date. Once your wrap is installed, we call you and you become a fan! That is our ultimate goal, every client leaves a happy fan of Picture This!
