This Bus Wrap Is Too Cool For School

Learning Avenues Child Care Center brought us their well-traveled yellow school bus for a stunning makeover. The Learning Avenues team knew they were missing an opportunity to market their services to potential customers while transporting children to and from area schools. After talking various vehicle branding options with us, Executive Director Jerry Todd decided a full vehicle wrap would be the perfect solution for this bus.

The always crucial "before" picture in a makeover!

The always crucial "before" picture in a makeover!


Primed and ready! The super guys over at Jacobus CARSTAR completely removed all the numbering and lettering so we would have a clear surface for the wrap. Some areas of the bus were sanded to ensure the wrap would really stick. 

The mirrors were removed so the graphics could be applied more easily. We even took off all the light covers and scrubbed them up so the finished product would really shine. 


The simple design of the bus was done by Amanda Tuttle of a.tuttle design.  It's eye catching and features the colorful tree from the logo super-sized to cover large portions of both sides as well as the back of the bus. The parts of the tree that cover the windows are printed on a perforated material that allows children to see out while folks on the outside see the design. The finished bus is sure to catch lots of attention wherever it goes.

This video shows the process of the wrap being installed on the bus. A couple of days and voila!  The bus was taken from standard issue yellow to a sharp white with custom design.
