Vehicle Graphics & Wraps

Vehicle Graphics & Wraps

Don’t leave your mobile billboard bare!

Vehicle graphics and wraps are a cost-effective way to turn your vehicle into a professional, high-impact, mobile billboard. The average busy vehicle can be seen by 3,000 people every hour—that’s 3,000 potential customers.

Vehicle wraps provide businesses with the best bang for their advertising buck, exceeding the price/results ratio of traditional advertising. Most wraps fall in the $1,500  to $2,500 price range and have a 4 – 5 year life span (depending on care). That translates to roughly $25 to $50 a month.

Whether you already have an idea or design for your vehicle, or want us to create it from scratch, we’ll assure you a polished, high-impact result that will get you noticed.

High-quality / Long-lasting

There’s a science to printing and installing vehicle graphics and wraps to ensure a smooth look and long-lasting graphics. We love that science and have a team of specialists, each with 20+ years of experience.

We exclusively use 3M’s premier wrap media and laminate for all of our vehicle graphics and wraps. We’ve tried the other brands and know we can rely on 3M for the finest materials and customer service.

Full Wrap

Covers entire vehicle, excluding the roof. Most expensive option, provides a truly spectacular look, but often not needed for high impact.

Partial Wrap

Covers ½ – ⅔ of vehicle typically, and provides high impact for lower price than a full wrap. We use the background color of the vehicle to accent the wrapped areas.

Print and Cut Graphics

Full-color graphics, cut to shape and applied showing the background color of the vehicle. Economical alternative to a wrap.

Perforated Window Vinyl (View-thru)

Full-color print to cover windows, typically the back glass or back side windows. This media is not cut to shape, but allows the driver to see out. All of our perforated window media is laminated for fade-resistance and easier visibility in rainy weather. Perforated media generally has a shorter life than solid vinyl, but we are careful to properly cure and laminate to give our prints the longest life possible.

License Plates

We also print custom commercial license plates both reflective and non-reflective in small and large quantities.

What is the process for getting a sign made?

We pride ourselves on both the quality of our work and on providing exceptional customer service. When having a job sign made, the following list will give you a good idea of how we start with an idea and finish with a sign.

    1. Provide the following information:
      1. Vehicle manufacturer, vehicle model, vehicle year.
      2. Measurements: inches, width by height of each side of vehicle or trailer. If requesting back glass only, please include measurements of glass: inches, width x height.
    2. Send photos of vehicle, taken straight on to prevent skewing. Please send photos of front, rear, and each side. (email/upload):

What's the turn around time?

Vehicle wraps with art supplied ready to print typically can be proofed and printed within 5-8 business days. When design is required, typically two weeks should allow time for design and feedback on clear-set plans. More complex projects may take more time. Most vehicle wraps require roughly hours to design. Clients will be notified if design time extending beyond this allotment. We keep a steady installation calendar and clients will be notified of the first available installation date.

How are reorders handled?

To move your re-order through our system quickly, email theteam@portcitysigns.com  the prior proof sheet or the job order/invoice number. Indicate you are looking for an exact re-order and you would like to bypass the proof. This will send your order directly to production!

What factors go into the cost of a job site sign?

Our pricing depends on a number of factors. The media type, creativity of the design, and complexity of the assembly and installation.
