We’re always a little hesitant to talk about vehicle wraps during the holiday season because the word “wrap” tends to have different connotations at this time of year. For many, it can be traumatizing with the mountains of presents that need to be wrapped. For others, they may envision the cute, oversized red bows that rich people put on cars they’re giving as gifts. For today’s blog entry, we hope you’ll put these images aside and consider the best vehicle wraps for Portland, OR: the ones that make your company vehicle stand out!
What to Look for in the Best Vehicle Wrap Companies
Sign companies vary wildly when it comes to quality. There are some shops that are run out of the stinky garage of some guy named Lance. He only takes orders online and only when he’s able to check his website using his dial-up connection. Most of the time, Lance’s teenage kids are on the phone so your wrap order will have to wait until another day. He gets his vinyl from the arts and crafts store down the block. On the other hand, the best vehicle wrap sign shops have the following characteristics:
They Treat You Right
When you try to save a few bucks with an online sign maker, you often miss out on customer support. However, you’ll talk to a real live person (no zombies!) when you call us. We’ll listen closely to your goals for your vehicle wrap and keep you in the loop every step of the way. And, if your wrap is ever giving you trouble, you can stop by, and we’ll fix it for you. Or, we can come to you. Meanwhile, Lance can’t seem to get his AOL email to work right. You won’t be hearing from him.
They Have Fancy Equipment
We love giving our clients tours of our shop. We have fun software that shows you exactly what your car will look like once it’s wrapped. And, our large format digital printers are also pretty neat-o. A good sign company should also be able to store the artwork for your full vehicle wrap so they can print out replacement pieces if you get in an accident or if you run afoul of some scofflaws.
They Need to Be Able to Win Wrap Battles
Sometimes installation is a battle but only if you don’t have the right equipment. Lance won’t install your wrap for you. And, let’s put it this way: we’ve never seen any untrained individuals successfully install a wrap. It’s tough. You need the skills of a top-quality sign shop with the thousands of dollars of necessary equipment. Besides, many wrap warranties are void if you don’t have a professional install your wrap for you.
This should give you a good idea of where to look for the best vehicle wraps in Portland, OR. (HINT: It’s Specialty Graphics Solutions!) If you do end up getting a car with a red bow for Christmas, please contact our mighty sign makers for a cool wrap.
