Vehicle wraps are considered to be a recognized design product specifically for businesses of small size. The side portion of the vehicles is an excellent advertising space that will be viewed by a large number of individuals.

It is essentially a mobile billboard with room for advertisement which a business just needs to pay one time.

Most of the vehicle wraps constitute printed and large vinyl stickers put in on the vehicle’s surface. But, it can be a little complicated task to design these effective advertisements.

Any of the designers who intend to work on a vehicle vinyl wrap should have a basic understanding of standard graphic design programs. They should again focus on doing effective research before getting started.

In this blog post, we’ll go through the overall process of designing print-ready vinyl wrap car files as well as the ways to deliver those to your client.

Now, let’s begin our discussion.

• Type Of Vehicle

The first thing to think about is the type of vehicle you wish to wrap. Depending on the shape as well as size, and function of your vehicle, the wrapping procedure will vary. You want to ensure that your wrap design works well with your vehicle.

For example, if you’re designing for a large van, you’ll need to have your design fill the overall space.

However, if you’re designing for a smaller vehicle, you would not want the same design since it might overwhelm it.

If you have a vehicle that serves a specific purpose, like a food truck, you’ll want to make sure your logo, as well as message, are visible. So, you should place those in such a way that they would not be covered whenever you open the door specifically during the business.

• Collect Information

You must first get a proper template before you start designing anything. To be able to create a print-ready and scalable design, you must focus on starting with an exact template file of the vehicle of your client. Again, vehicle wrap files can be intricate as well as large.

Your client will ideally offer you template files of the vehicle’s blueprint before beginning with the project.

In case, they don’t have one, they can ask over their vinyl wrap printer to send them one as per their preferences.

Keep in mind that templates files that are bought online will not be precise every time, since each vehicle may have minor irregularities particularly on the surface.

Some of the important considerations to make involves which printing service provider the client is employing and what they can provide.

As each of the printing firms may have diverse file needs or printing methods, it is critical to collect a lot of info before you begin with the design.

Finally, request that your client give you high-resolution images of the vehicle as well as specify which car model it is. Inquire whether the car’s surface has any irregularities that may vary from current templates.

In this regard, you should focus on considering some of the most important things:

Change the color mode of your document to CMYK.

One technique to scale up a design is to utilize a 1:10 ratio.

Set the document PPI to 720.

If photos (high-resolution) or raster images are components of the design, you should focus on using them.

All typefaces should be converted to outlines.

Label as well as organize every part into distinct layers and ensure that every graphic possesses its sublayer.

You should focus on adding 5 to 10 in bleeds to every template piece. The design will specifically have to wrap around things such as door edges as well as putting in extra bleed will allow the design to stick to the car.
