Vehicle wrap design costs in Newcastle, NSW

One of the biggest vehicle 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 vehicle then that is pretty straight forward. You would already have the artwork because it is used for other parts of your business.

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 a partial or full wrap for example then you either need to engage a graphic designer or a sign writer to get this created. At Screen Signs we can provide an end to end design, print and installation service for any type of vehicle signage.

What is the cost difference for a partial wrap on a medium size car as an example?

  • Economy wrap material installed in our workshop with supplied artwork – $1623.75 ex GST
 
  • Economy wrap material installed in our workshop + sign writing design – $1623.75 ex GST + $115 ex GST per hour
 
We can’t provide a fixed cost 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, how clear the design brief is and how many changes or ammendments are made to the design. We make it easy to review and approve any sign writing designs for vehicle signage by providing 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.

What is vehicle Signage?
vehicle signage involves the application of custom-designed graphics, logos, and messages on the exterior of a business vehicle. It transforms your vehicle into a mobile billboard, advertising your brand wherever it goes. This powerful marketing tool not only enhances your brand’s visibility but also imparts a professional appearance to your business vehicle.

 

Different Ways to Create Van Signage
Vinyl Wraps: One of the most popular choices, vinyl wraps are durable and offer a wide range of customisation options. They can cover the entire vehicle for a complete transformation or be applied partially to specific areas, showcasing intricate designs and vibrant colours.

Magnetic Signs: Perfect for those seeking flexibility, magnetic signs can be easily applied and removed from the vehicle. They are ideal for businesses that use their vans for both professional and personal purposes.

Decals and Stickers: These are cost-effective options for business owners looking to display logos, contact information, or simple graphics. They can be placed on windows or the body of the van.

Painted Graphics: Though less common due to the permanence and labor intensity, some business owners opt for hand-painted graphics for a classic and artistic touch.

 

Why Invest in Van Signage as a Business Owner?
Enhanced Visibility: Your branded vehicle becomes a mobile advertisement, capturing the attention of pedestrians and fellow motorists wherever it travels, thus extending your reach beyond traditional boundaries.

Cost-Effective: Unlike recurring costs associated with digital and print advertising, vehicle signage is a one-time investment that continues to yield returns as long as the graphics remain on the vehicle.

Professionalism: A well-designed vehicle signage not only advertises but also legitimises your business. It conveys a sense of professionalism and commitment, instilling confidence in prospective clients.

Customisation: With a plethora of design, material, and application options, you can tailor the vehicle signage to mirror your brand’s ethos and message accurately.

Local Marketing: For businesses targeting local markets, branded vans effectively create brand awareness and establish a recognisable presence within specific locales.

vehicle signage is more than an advertising tool—it’s a mobile canvas that artfully communicates your brand’s identity, values, and offerings to the world. As you navigate through the city’s veins, your branded van does more than transport goods; it carries your brand’s essence, weaving through the collective consciousness of the community. 

Investing in vehicle signage is not an expense but a strategic move to weave your brand into the daily lives of potential customers, unobtrusively yet impactfully. Every journey your van embarks upon is an opportunity to imprint your brand in the minds of the masses, making van signage an indispensable tool in the arsenal of a visionary business owner. 

Embark on the journey of mobile branding, and let every mile covered be a narrative of your brand’s unwavering presence and indomitable spirit. Your brand isn’t confined within walls; it’s as expansive, mobile, and unstoppable as your branded van.

The other huge consideration is long term resale value because if you paint a vehicle with a custom design, logos and graphics for a company it becomes harder to sell later. Even popular motorsport racing teams use vinyl wrapping on their vehicles so sponsors and colours can be changed easily. By getting your car partially or fully wrapped you can promote your business and when you sell your vehicle you can remove the wrapping. So not only is it a promotional tool but protects the original paint as well.
