Vehicle signage in Cardiff for a VW Amarok Ute

Car dealerships around Newcastle will often create promotional vehicles when new models are released or there are special seasonal promotions running like end of year financial run outs, build plate clearances or limited edition models for sale. One of the most cost effective ways of doing this is getting vehicle signage that uses vinyl and can be easily applied and then removed at the end of its use

Vehicle signage for car dealerships

Volkswagen Cardiff approached Screen Signs with the idea of getting vehicle signage for their new VW Amarok V6 ute. Their idea was to have promotional messages on the side of the vehicle for people to see when it was being driven around on the roads or sitting at the dealership. Large promotional messages can be printed on vinyl adhesive and placed on selected areas of the vehicle.

For this vehicle we used vinyl cut graphics in chrome cast vinyl that could be placed on the sides of the vehicle. An alternative choice would have been a full vehicle wrap to create signage that covers the whole body area or you can have selected parts covered like the doors, boot, bonnet or ute tray.

Vehicle sign writing for utes

Getting sign writing on cars, vans and trucks has been common for many years, but with the growth of the sales of utes more business owners, tradies and retail shops have wanted to get either graphics, half wraps or full vehicle wraps for their utes to turn them into promotional vehicles. Sign writing for a ute (utility vehicle) can be an invaluable investment for businesses and professionals aiming to enhance brand visibility, convey a professional image, and maximise advertising reach. Here’s a detailed look at the value it brings:

Enhanced Brand Visibility:
Mobile Exposure: Sign writing turns a ute into a mobile billboard. Wherever the vehicle goes, so does the brand, expanding visibility beyond a fixed location and reaching a broader audience.
Continuous Advertising: Unlike temporary ad campaigns, sign writing offers continuous exposure without recurring costs, ensuring the brand remains visible at all times.


Cost-Effective Marketing:
Budget-Friendly: Compared to traditional advertising mediums, sign writing is cost-effective, offering long-term value with a one-time investment.
Targeted Outreach: It enables businesses to reach specific demographics by simply driving the branded ute through targeted areas, optimizing marketing effectiveness.


Professionalism and Credibility:
Brand Consistency: Uniform sign writing across a fleet of utes enhances brand consistency, presenting a unified and professional image.
Trust Building: A well-designed, branded vehicle can increase perceived credibility and trust among potential customers.


Customisation and Flexibility:
Tailored Designs: Businesses can customize the design to align with their brand identity, ensuring the right message is communicated effectively.
Adaptability: Sign writing can be updated or changed as the business evolves, offering flexibility in advertising.


Increased Business Opportunities:
Lead Generation: A branded ute can attract attention and generate leads, with contact information readily available on the vehicle.
Competitive Edge: In a competitive market, a professionally branded ute can set a business apart, creating a memorable impression.


Sign writing for a ute is not just about aesthetic appeal; it’s a strategic tool that amplifies brand awareness, enhances professional perception, and drives engagement, all while offering a return on investment that extends beyond traditional advertising avenues. Every journey the ute embarks upon becomes an opportunity to connect, engage, and leave a lasting imprint of the brand in the public’s consciousness.
