Our our sign writing shop in Cardiff near Newcastle can design, print and install partial or full vehicle wraps on trucks. Wrapping a truck is a smart decision for business owners who want to increase awareness in the local area for their products or services. In the case of Newcastle Car & Truck Rental their fleet of vehicles are on the road almost 24 hours a day so that means they can be constantly promoting their brand anywhere the vehicles are driven.
Getting vehicle wrapping for a fleet of trucks
If you are a business that owns a fleet of vehicles the cheapest option to put any type of branding on your cars, trucks or vans is to get a simple graphic or logo printed and installed on the doors. To create more impact though the extra investment pays off when you consider a partial or full vehicle wrap that uses the sides, rear or front of the vehicle to cover it with promotional messaging about your business.
Vehicle wrapping can also cover the side windows as well as the option for one way vision rear window signage as well.
So no matter what area is getting wrapped the driver will always have visibility while people can clearly see who owns the vehicle and what products or services are being sold.
Getting decals for a a fleet of trucks
The alternative to a partial or full vehicle wrap on a truck is to get decals applied. Decals can be printed in different sizes and then stuck to the doors, bonnet, rear or sides of a truck.
Using materials like the Avery Denison MPI2105 you can get decals on your truck for around $500 ex gst depending on their size, complexity and installation difficulty.

How much does a vehicle wrap cost on a truck?
Read our free guide on vehicle signage pricing here.
When it comes to pricing for vehicle wrapping, there are several factors that come into play, and one of the primary determinants is the complexity of the design. As a general rule, the more intricate the design and the larger the area of the vehicle to be covered, the higher the price will be. This is understandable, as more complex designs often require additional time, materials or resources to get it all designed, printed and installed on the vehicle.
There are several other critical factors that influence the pricing of vehicle signage;
- The method of production is a key consideration, different production methods come with varying costs. So for example if you are after a vehicle decal that is typically a once piece design on single sheet of material that is applied to a large surface area. A full or partial vehicle wrap may have multiple elements which needs more time to produce each piece.
- The installation process can vary based on the intricacy of applying the signage to the vehicle can affect the overall price. As mentioned if we are just placing two decals on the doors that may take less than thirty minutes but a full wrap might take a day.
- Quality of the materials used in the signage also play a significant role in determining the cost because you can choose from different types of material, finishes or textures.
As a team of sign writing designers we are equipped to tackle all of these challenges and provide you with advice as well as competitive pricing that will make sense for your requirements. We can cleverly design vehicle signage that strategically places suitable graphics, lettering or wrapping that will minimise installation time and reduce off-road downtime for your vehicle. This becomes especially important if you have a fleet of vehicles that need to be covered.
The benefit of using an experienced sign writer who works with vehicle wrapping all the time is our ability to ensure the final signage installed is visually impactful and effectively communicates your intended message. By taking into account the unique contours and features of each vehicle, we are able to optimise the initial design ideas and also ensure the placement of any type of vehicle signage is executed for maximum impact and efficiency.
Once we choose the most suitable design application, production technique and final layout for each specific design we can ensure the end result is both visually stunning and cost-effective. Every time we carry out an installation it is done with precision and expertise which is not only important in terms of cost, but also in ensuring the signage lasts for a long time & the vehicle is back on the road quickly.
Ten reasons to get a vehicle wrap for a truck
A full or partial vehicle wrap for a truck is a marketing and branding technique that involves applying a vinyl film with custom graphics, designs, and messages to the entire surface or specific sections of a truck’s exterior. Our sign writing shop has done this for hundreds of vehicles that are driving around the Central Coast & Hunter Valley region.
A wrap transforms the vehicle into a mobile advertising platform, turning heads and promoting a brand, product, or service wherever the truck travels. So if you have one vehicle or a fleet it makes a lot of sense to use them to create awareness as they drive around
1. Coverage and Impact:
A full or partial vehicle wrap can cover pretty much the entire exterior of the truck if you want, including the sides, front, back, and sometimes even the roof. This extensive coverage provides a vast canvas for displaying eye-catching graphics and messages. You can focus on specific areas of the truck, such as the sides or back.
2. High Visibility:
Trucks, especially delivery or commercial vehicles, are highly visible on the road due to their size and mobility. Wrapping a truck ensures that the brand message or advertisement is seen by a broad and diverse audience.
3. Mobile Advertising:
A wrapped truck essentially becomes a moving billboard. It can travel to various locations, covering different geographic areas, and expose the brand to a wide range of potential customers.
4. Professional Appearance:
A well-designed and professionally installed vehicle wrap enhances the truck’s overall appearance. It conveys a sense of credibility and professionalism to potential customers, instilling trust in the brand.
5. Brand Consistency:
Vehicle wraps ensure consistent branding across the entire fleet of trucks, helping to maintain a cohesive and recognisable brand image.
6. Protection and Longevity:
The vinyl wrap not only serves as a branding tool but also protects the truck’s paint from UV rays, minor scratches, and weather elements. This can help preserve the vehicle’s resale value later on.
Vehicle wraps can be customised to include various design elements, including logos, contact information, promotional offers, and eye-catching graphics. This flexibility allows businesses to adapt their advertising messages as needed, our sign writing staff can even make mock ups to give you some ideas on what it would look like.
8. Cost-Effective Marketing:
Compared to traditional advertising methods like billboards, TV commercials, or print ads, vehicle wraps offer a cost-effective way to reach a broad audience continuously and without any extra effort or money spent.
Unlike painting or other permanent alterations, vehicle wraps are non-invasive and can be removed without causing damage to the truck’s original paint. This flexibility is especially valuable for leased or temporary use vehicles.
10. Long lasting:
Depending how you care for the vehicle and the type of materials and installation that is done, a vehicle wrap can last a few years. So the initial up front cost becomes very effective over a long period of time.
Full or partial vehicle wraps for trucks make sense due to the large area available for branding and advertising. They leverage the size and visibility of trucks to transform them into powerful mobile marketing tools that promote businesses and products effectively while providing protection and a professional appearance.
One way rear window sign for a truck or van
Another area of a vehicle that can have signage put on it is the rear windows. You can choose between one way vision rear window signage that covers the whole window or you can have lettering applied as pictured above. For some business owners they will cover the window to help improve security as people can’t easily see what tools or equipment is inside.
