Vehicle Sign Writing | 01738 451450

Vehicle sign writing, vehicle livery or vehicle wrapping has changed over the last few years, almost beyond recognition. No longer do you need to be satisfied with run of the mill vehicle livery. Mercury Signs & Designs Ltd have the facilities and expertise to produce stunning vehicle livery which can be the most cost effective form of advertising. Regardless if you have one vehicle or a whole fleet your company image is just as important, if your vehicle looks professional then your business looks professional.

Most companies should be aware of the effectiveness of vehicle sign writing and vehicle wrapping as a means of reaching their target audience. According to a recent study, a busy vehicle can be seen by an average of 3000 people every hour! That is 24,000 people on an average working day. You must ensure your vehicle livery is the best it can possibly be to maximise your company exposure.

Vehicle Wrapping

Vehicle wrapping has become more popular in recent years, not only does it reinforce your company brand it also helps to protect the vehicle paintwork from stone chips and minor abrasions. You can think of a vehicle wrap as a rolling billboard that is constantly on the move, covering vast areas (including the places that other advertising can't reach).
A professional quality vehicle wrap requires specialist vinyl materials. These are weather resistant to UV, cold and heat. Adherence to the vehicle body is obviously just as important, as the wrap must stay on without peeling. We use a range of specialist vinyls made specifically for vehicle sign writing and vehicle wrapping, making it the perfect medium for digitally printed vehicle graphics. The high performance wrapping vinyl is ultra conformable which makes it ideal for vehicle wraps as it adheres to panels with recesses and corrugations. Not only do we use high performance materials we also have dedicated vehicle wrapping engineers so you can be assured that your vehicle will continue to look great year after year.

 Colour Change Vehicle Wrap

As manufacturers of wrapping film introduce more colours, changing the colour of your vehicle has risen in popularity. With colours ranging from gloss to matt or metallic to carbon fibre the sky is the limit as to what can now be achieved. Not only will your vehicle make a statement, the wrap also helps to protect the original paintwork and when it comes to selling the vehicle it is straight forward to strip the vinyl off.

 Vehicle Sign Writing

A full vehicle wrap may not be for you and your business and there are a number of other option available to you. You may consider a partial wrap where only part of the vehicle has a digital wrap image and the rest of the vehicle has vinyl graphics and lettering. Or you may not want any images at all and would prefer the traditional look of vinyl graphics and lettering only. Here at Mercury Signs & Designs Ltd our experienced design team will discuss with you during your appointment which method best suits your business always offering the best advice to achieve the vision you have for your vehicle branding.
