Vehicle signage is a great way to get your name out there and attract new business. Of course, there's more than just one option, and business owners often find themselves struggling to choose between vehicle wraps and magnetised signs.
Here are just four reasons why you should go for vehicle wraps.
1. More Complete Coverage
The main benefit that car wraps hold over magnetised signs is that they can cover more of the vehicle. A magnetic sign will usually be designed to cover only a small section, and they can only be applied to a flat surface. In contrast, a wrap can be applied right around your vehicle. That provides a more eye-catching appearance, and it means that people will be able to see your message from any angle. Since vehicle signage is all about visibility, the option for wider coverage is clearly a huge plus.
2. Neater Appearance
The fact that magnetised vehicle signs can be removed is really something of a drawback. While a vehicle wrap will be applied by a professional to ensure everything is perfect, magnetised signs can be taken on and off by your staff. They probably won't be too careful, so your vehicles could end up with wonky signs. That might not sound like a big deal, but it won't cast your business in a particularly good light.
3. Less Risk of Damage
It's true that car wraps can damage your vehicle, but only when they are applied incorrectly. Get a professional to do the job instead of handling it yourself, and you're sure to end up without any damage. Unfortunately, the same isn't true of magnetised signs. When dust and dirt form on the area you place the sign, scratches can develop. This means you'll need to ask your staff to wipe down the area thoroughly before replacing the sign. In extreme heat, magnets can even start to melt onto the vehicle.
4. Added Security
While a thief or vandal could technically remove your car wrap, they'd have to be extremely motivated to bother. Not so when you're dealing with a magnetised vehicle sign. Someone will be able to whip it off with ease, meaning the sign will need to be replaced. That can be bothersome, but it's an even more important flaw when you consider that vehicles with magnetised signs are seen as better targets for theft. A thief can simply remove the signs to have the vehicle looking like any other. That's not an option when a vehicle wrap has been applied.
