The pricing for car signage will vary depending what is included, this guide is based on;

  • Using an economy wrap material installed in our workshop, with templated artwork supplied. 
  • You can choose from other premium materials which adds at least 30% to the cost. 
  • You can have on site installation which is typically an additional 20%
  • Artwork can be designed or customised for $115.00 + GST per hour.

Car signage design pricing

One of the biggest car signage costs that people don’t consider is the graphic design or sign writing component. If you are simply having a logo printed so that it can be used as signage on your car then that is pretty straight forward. You would already have the artwork because it is used for other parts of your business, we can use that file to print vinyl decals that can be applied to the doors for example.

Although if you don’t have a logo or you want the logo incorporated into a design that would be suitable to be printed and used for car signage that covers large areas of your door, bonnet or window then you either need to;

a) engage a local graphic designer to create all the necessary artwork for you

b) use our sign writer services that we offer at Screen Signs where we can provide an end to end design, print and installation for any type of car signage.

We can’t provide a fixed price for the sign writing design component of the work because;

  • It may take one hour or three hours to complete the work depending how complex it is
  • The clarity of the brief may mean there are many changes or ammendments made to the design. 
  • There could be a number of review rounds that require more labour time from the graphic designer
 
One way that we make the process faster is to provide a mock up that is rendered on a vehicle shape that is similar to the one we would do the installation on. This also means it can be sent to marketing or brand teams for approval if needed, even if they are in another state.

 

The price to get branding on cars

Getting branding on cars can cost as little as $236.25 to have logo and letting on both side doors. It is the cheapest, fastest way to brand the cars being used for a local business, school or organisation including vans, SUV’s or utes. Branding can be also be done on a fleet of cars too so they all look the same. 

The best way to brand a vehicle is to include very clear promotional messaging about what the business sells so that passers by can see the logo, company name and exactly what you do – that is cost effective branding on cars.

 

Car lettering, graphics & logo pricing

Getting lettering, graphics or logos printed to be installed on your van, suv, ute or truck is one of the most common things any business does in Newcastle. 

The cost to get logos and lettering on both side doors starts from just $236.25 ex GST

This helps with local brand awareness but also aids your tax deduction calculations for work vehicle usage & expenses.

Car fleet vehicle sticker pricing

Getting stickers put onto cars in a fleet of vehicles is very similar to getting graphics or logos in terms of the type of service needed. 

The cost to get logos and lettering on both side doors starts from just $236.25 ex GST and we can customise a quote if you need something on the bonnet, ute tray or boot as well.

For car vehicle stickers we also provide the option to do the installation at your site where multiple vehicles might be located at once.

Pricing for company logo on a car

If you have a personal car that is used for a company or business purposes then we can create a single vinyl sticker that can be placed on the doors that is easily removed later.

Alternatively we can produce magnetic logos that can be taken on and off the vehicle between using it for personal use or company use. 

Removable vehicle signage is a great solution to have a company logo on a personal vehicle.

Car window advertising pricing in Newcastle

We can design and print car window advertising in Newcastle and the cost will vary depending on the type you choose. So for example the simplest graphics that can be printed on a window would be lettering that shows a logo, phone number or website. It is simple text that is stuck to a rear or side window of a van, car, ute or truck.

One way vision window advertising can be custom designed using a sign writer to fit the shape of the rear or side window perfectly. You can see through it while you are driving but it prevents people looking inside the vehicle. This is more expensive as it requires more material, sign writing expertise and time needed for the installation.

If you buy a vehicle signage package from us we can include window advertising signage as part of the package and in fact for partial or full vehicle wraps it becomes part of the whole design. These can be printed and installed for the rear or side windows of vans, buses, utes, SUV’s or cars.
