September marks the release of the 70 plate registration numbers. If you’re buying or leasing a new vehicle and require upgraded, updated and uplifted graphics Signs Express can help bring your brand to life!
On average your vehicle could be seen by over 3,000 people every hour in a typical working day.* Powerful and high impact, vehicle graphics are the perfect way to create a 24/7 marketing campaign. 96% of people believe that vehicle graphics are one of the most powerful forms of advertising** and there are plenty of options to explore for all budgets!
Custom Decals & Graphics
A great option for self-employed businesspeople or start-ups, custom graphics and stickers are quick to apply and can be cheaper than you think. Decals are a simple alternative to a larger vehicle livery, due to their fast turnaround and ability to be easily removed. They also provide a great option for promotional events and ad-hoc usage. Our custom graphics can be provided on a supply only basis, so you can apply when required. FAQ – What are decals? Decals is another term used for vinyl graphics and vinyl signs, commonly used to describe lettering and logos on cars, vans and lorries amongst other transportation modes.
Vehicle WrapsAt the other end of the scale, wrapping is a great solution for covering large areas of a vehicle. Vinyl can be very versatile which makes it a popular choice for those looking to completely or partially brand their business vehicles or make a statement with a privately-owned car. Not only can wraps add the wow-factor, they can also protect original paintwork, helping with resale values and also act as a theft deterrent which can lead to lower insurance premiums.*** FAQ – How long do vehicle graphics last? Professionally applied vehicle graphics should last for years if they are cared for correctly. We advise that you do not wash your vehicle for a week after vehicle graphics are applied and do not jet wash the graphics as this may reduce their life. For permanent vehicle graphics, we always recommend laminating your graphics which should prolong the colour of any digitally printed images.
Reflective Vehicle Markings
Reflective markings can serve two important purposes; helping to comply with health and safety standards and keeping your branding visible in all conditions. Certain vehicles will have to comply with Chapter 8 regulations which includes having fluorescent yellow and retro-reflective red markings applied to the rear. Chevron markings are also essential for emergency service vehicles including ambulances and police vehicles, in addition to blue and yellow battenberg graphics. To make your vehicles really stand out 24/7, reflective vinyl adds the wow-factor and is great in low-light conditions. FAQ – What are reflective vinyl graphics? There are specialist vinyl materials available which offer reflective qualities for high impact graphics, which are illuminated by light sources such as headlights or lamp posts. We can apply your vehicle with rear chevrons or build reflective graphics into your livery design for high visibility of your vehicle. Legislation requires new commercial vehicles over 3.5 tonnes of any age to have reflective outlines to the bodies and rears of the vehicle.
Fleet GraphicsTo achieve a recognisable brand, it is important to have consistent messaging across all elements of the business and this includes any company vehicles you may own or lease. From simple lettering and logos to a full wrap, there are plenty of options to create a professional look which helps to enhance your corporate identity. Vehicle graphics can also be removed if a vehicle is no longer needed, is being returned or sold making it a convenient option for fleets. There are many types of vehicle graphics with different options available that offer a range of solutions for every requirement. Signs Express is experienced in delivering fleet livery to national businesses with bespoke support and premium materials, so you can trust us as your fleet graphics partner. FAQ – How do I remove my vehicle graphics? We would advise all graphics and wraps to be removed by a professional to ensure no damage is done to the vehicle.
