How vinyl vehicle stickers can benefit you
Vehicle sticker printing has been used as a form of promotion for decades, and it’s not hard to see why. If you’re driving around every day to and from a place of work, then your car or van is a prime piece of advertising real estate which you can use to promote your brand or special offer.
It’s what tradespeople, such as plumbers, have been doing for years. They often use van stickers or bumper stickers to include their business name, logo, list of services and contact details across their van. When driving, this can literally be seen by THOUSANDS of people every week! They’re a brilliant form of brand promotion and also put your business in front of potential customers when they may need it most.
However, vehicle stickers aren’t just for trade businesses. They can literally be used for any form of business promotion. If you have a car or van for business commuting, then you can use them to turn it into your very own branded billboard. It’s very easy and very cheap with Discount Sticker Printing.
Another great use is to promote a special offer. For example, you can create custom vehicle stickers which showcase your latest prices or latest eye-grabbing special deal. You can then drive around or even park your car in a key area with lots of passing footfall. It’s like having your very own mobile billboard!
The ability to choose your very own shape and size with Discount Sticker Printing also means that we have stickers suitable for cars, vans, motorbikes, cycles and much more. Basically, if it moves, then we can create a sticker for it!
This makes it easy to provide the right sort of promotion for your vehicle. For example, if you have a car, then car sticker printing can be done on a smaller scale to fit perfectly across a side door, bonnet or boot. However, if you have a larger vehicle such as a van, then van sticker printing can be done much larger to fit the wide surface area of a side door. Our stickers can be created to perfectly suit what you’re looking for.
Alongside business promotion, our stickers also offer fantastic customisation purposes. For example, you can add completely custom vehicle stickers to your car, van or motorbike with your own artwork to create a really personalised look which fits your own tastes. If you can’t find decals with the right photograph or image, then simply create your own! Our stickers don’t have to just be used on the outside surface, but also the inside as well, with vinyl in car stickers perfect for uses such as dashboards, car window stickers and other internal surfaces.
No matter what you need, we’ve got you covered, so start your order by choosing from the options above.
Vehicle stickers are the most widely seen type of sticker in the world. Research carried out by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) states that vehicle advertising boosts brand identification by as much as 15 times more than any other sort of advertising. These findings are supported by studies done in the USA by the Transportation sector of the Advertising Council, which discovered that individual vehicle advertising generates between 30,000 and 70,000 daily impressions.
They are used for commercial, religious, secular, humorous reasons or to show support of a sports team or other organisation. In the United States the bumper sticker is used as a way of showing your support for a political candidate. At election time nearly every car is showing its support for a political candidate.
Other parts of the world use them to show where they have been on holiday, or in support of a charity. Rear window stickers are popular around the world. Vehicle stickers have expanded to include vehicle decals, which are applied to a car's rear windshield, and the entire body of the car.
Vehicle stickers date roughly with the birth of the Ford Model A, in 1927, it was the first car to have a bumper. Although there was a form of bumper sticker shortly before World War II; which were flag-like, and attached using wires it was Forest P. Gill, a Kansas City based printer's replacement of the wire attachments with pressure sensitive adhesive, in the late 1930s, which resulted in bumper stickers became more far-flung and practical.
The first promotional use of bumper stickers was in the 1940s when staff at a tourist venue, Rock City, Tennessee began applying stickers to the bumpers of visitors’ cars. Though called "stickers", these bumper signs were really light, screen-printed card. They were connected with compressed aluminium strips, along through the end of the sign and wrapped around the bumper.
Today they are made from lightweight soft PVC. PVC is the abbreviation of polyvinyl chloride, a plastic; it is one of the most used compounds in the world with virtually unaccountable applications. PVC is waterproof with a firm surface that does not easily peel or tear.
The vinyl used to make vehicle stickers comes in sizeable rolls that are pushed through a large-format printer/cutter. Designs are made using specific computer software and this information sent to the machines via cable link for production and cutting.
Using a repositional adhesive allows for ease of usage, and correct application adhesion into recesses for a professional finish. Printers employ solvent, eco solvent and latex inks. Vehicle stickers will usually last up to two years in extreme outdoor conditions.
