Vehicle signage

Half wraps

Having your vehicle half-wrapped is an excellent way to promote your brand effectively. A half-wrap strategically displays your messaging without the costs incurred with an entire wrap, whilst still capturing attention on the road. It maximises visibility while maintaining a sleek and professional appearance. Additionally, the cost-effective nature of half-wrapping allows you to achieve impactful advertising without fully covering the entire vehicle. It serves as a dynamic marketing tool that creates a lasting impression and generates brand awareness wherever your vehicle goes.

Full wraps

Having your vehicle fully wrapped is an incredibly effective way to promote your brand. A full vehicle wrap turns your car, van, or truck into a mobile billboard, showcasing your brand’s logo, colours, and messaging with eye-catching visuals. This mobile advertisement captures attention wherever it goes, reaching a wide and diverse audience. The vibrant and professional design creates a lasting impression and increases brand recognition. It offers a high return on investment, as the vehicle wrap acts as a 24/7 marketing tool, generating brand exposure even when the vehicle is parked. With its wide reach and constant visibility, a full vehicle wrap is a powerful branding and advertising solution.

Vehicle decals

Applying vinyl decals to your vehicle is a fantastic way to build your brand and increase visibility. These custom decals feature your brand’s logo, tagline, and graphics, creating a mobile advertisement that travels with you. The decals can be strategically placed on various areas of the vehicle, such as windows, doors, or bumpers, maximising exposure. As you drive around, your brand becomes highly visible to a wide audience, increasing brand recognition and awareness. Vinyl decals are cost-effective, easily removable, and can be customised to fit any vehicle. By utilising vinyl decals, you can effectively promote your brand and make a lasting impression wherever you go.

Shopfronts

Raised letters

Having raised lettering on your shopfront can greatly enhance your brand’s visibility and impact. Raised lettering adds a three-dimensional element to your signage, making it stand out and catch the attention of customers. The tactile quality of raised lettering creates a sense of depth and professionalism, leaving a lasting impression on customers. It adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to your storefront, conveying a sense of quality and attention to detail. Raised lettering is durable and long-lasting too, ensuring that your brand remains prominently displayed for years to come. By incorporating raised lettering on your shopfront, you can effectively enhance your brand’s presence and attract more customers to your business.

Frosted windows

Frosted windows bring numerous benefits and added value to your shopfront or restaurant. They provide a sense of privacy by obscuring the view from the outside while still allowing natural light to filter through. This creates a comfortable and intimate ambiance for customers. Frosted windows can serve as an effective branding tool by displaying your logo or business name in an elegant and subtle manner. They also add a touch of sophistication and style to your establishment’s appearance.

Techniques

Wet & dry application

Vinyl graphics can be applied using two main methods: wet application and dry application. Each technique has its advantages and is suitable for different situations.

Wet application involves the use of a liquid solution, typically a mixture of water and a small amount of soap or detergent. The surface where the vinyl will be applied is first cleaned thoroughly to remove any dirt or debris. The vinyl graphic is then positioned on the surface, and the liquid solution is sprayed onto the adhesive side of the vinyl and the surface. This solution acts as a lubricant, allowing for easy repositioning and preventing air bubbles. Once the vinyl is correctly positioned, a squeegee is used to press out any excess liquid and ensure a smooth, wrinkle-free application. The wet method is particularly useful for large graphics, as it allows for easy adjustment and minimises the risk of trapped air bubbles.

On the other hand, dry application involves directly applying the vinyl graphic onto the clean and dry surface. This method is ideal for smaller graphics or when precise placement is required. Dry application requires careful alignment and accuracy during installation. The vinyl is carefully peeled from the backing paper and positioned on the surface, using alignment marks or guidelines as reference points. A squeegee is then used to firmly press the vinyl onto the surface, starting from the centre and working outwards to remove any air bubbles and ensure a secure bond. Dry application is generally quicker and simpler than wet application, making it suitable for smaller projects or situations where repositioning is not necessary.

Both wet and dry application methods have their merits and are chosen based on the specific requirements of the project. Proper surface preparation, accurate alignment, and the use of appropriate tools and techniques are key to achieving a professional and long-lasting vinyl graphic installation.

Tools & equipment

We utilise a range of specialised tools to ensure the precise and professional installation of vinyl graphics and signage. These tools enable us to achieve optimal adhesion, alignment, and finish, resulting in high-quality installations.

It all starts with the vinyl cutter or plotter, which precisely cuts the vinyl material according to the desired design. This ensures clean and accurate cuts, especially for intricate shapes and lettering.

To prepare surfaces for installation, we use tools such as cleaning solutions, lint-free cloths, and squeegees. These aids help us remove any dirt, dust, or residue from the surface, ensuring a clean and smooth base for the vinyl to adhere to.

During installation, we rely on application tools like squeegees and rollers. These tools help us press the vinyl onto the surface, eliminating air bubbles and ensuring proper adhesion. Squeegees with felt or microfibre edges are particularly useful for delicate surfaces, preventing scratches or damage during the installation process

.When it comes to larger graphics or installations in challenging locations, we employ tools such as ladders, scaffolding, or access equipment to safely reach and install signage in elevated or hard-to-reach areas. This ensures the safety of our installers while maintaining the quality and precision of the installation.

Additionally, we utilise measuring tools, such as tapes and levels, to ensure accurate alignment and placement of the graphics. These tools assist us in achieving consistency and uniformity across multiple installations.

Our comprehensive range of tools is carefully selected to meet the unique requirements of vinyl graphics and signage installation. By using these specialised tools, we ensure efficient, precise, and professional installations that exceed our clients’ expectations.
