What Are The Variables That Affect Vehicle Livery Costs?

If you want to know how much vehicle livery costs, ask how long is a piece of string. Car graphics are an incredibly cost-effective way to market your business, but there are also plenty of variables that can affect the cost of your vehicle wrap. Having said that, there are solutions available for any budget, but it pays to know exactly what variables will affect the cost of your vinyl wrap.

Is your vehicle wrap ready?

The size of your vehicle and the materials you choose will both impact on the cost of your vehicle livery – a truck will cost more than an SUV, which will cost more than a compact, and durable cast vinyl is more expensive than calendered vinyl.

Do you have a design in mind?

If you have a graphic designer on your team, great – if they have access to 3D modelling of your vehicle, even better. But if you need the services of a professional graphic designer with experience of vinyl wraps, then expect to pay for their expertise.

Whether you choose to use a professional designer or not, always provide high resolution graphics and photographic images. There’s no point investing in vehicle livery if it’s going to look blurred and unprofessional when installed on your vehicle.

Every vehicle livery project is different Just because a colleague got their vehicle wrapped for £X, that doesn’t mean your vehicle will cost the same. Because every job is different, you need to work with a signage company in East Sussex that understands your marketing needs.

For example, if you want a wrap that markets your business and raises brand awareness over an extended period of time, cast vinyl is the smart choice. But if you only want to add your contact details and logo to your works van, then door-mounted decals may suffice. Make sure you choose a company that works with you to drill down into your exact needs and suggests the most cost-effective solutions.

Consider a partial wrap

Not every wrap needs to be a full body cast vinyl wrap. In fact, a partial wrap is often the right solution for the small business on a budget – installed correctly, these can be every bit as effective as a full body wrap and can really make your message and your branding pop. If all you want to do is add a logo, contact info and a call to action to your vehicle, then this is the savvy and affordable choice.

Complexity and condition

Obviously, the more boxy your car or van design, the more straightforward and affordable your wrap will be. When compound curves are wrapped to perfection, they can create that high-impact effect you love – but you’ll pay extra for the considerable expertise involved in creating a truly seamless look.

The complexity of the design and the materials obviously have the biggest impact on the cost of your wrap, but you’ll also need to factor in the surface condition of your vehicle and any trim that needs to be removed and reinstalled to create the perfect finish.
