Let's Talk Shop: Partial Vehicle Wrap Sales

Selling a Story

Selling a Story

Environmental graphics are all about turning a space into an experience. Five shops show us how it's done.

Remember when the best thing about wide-format printing was that it was big? The task of slapping a logo on a banner or an ad on a poster will always fall to someone, but in 2017, those are no longer the jobs that showcase what digital can really do. The best thing about wide-format today is the ability to print someone special, and there's a whole new pool of end users who are beginning to pay attention.

WRAPS FOR A CAUSE

WRAPS FOR A CAUSE

Has your shop ever donated part or all of a wrap for a charitable cause? It should, and not only for the reason of doing good. Your shop could also do well by showing off its wrap chops (in addition to its generosity) to the community. And if you’ve just started in your market or have only recently taken on offering wraps, donating a wrap for a charitable cause will get you noticed – by the people supporting the cause itself, by the other sponsors and by the local public. Two companies that did wraps for different causes behind fighting breast cancer are featured here.

Extreme Vinyl: Standing Above the Competition

Having a business or other college degree does not guarantee any amount of success or sustainability in the wrap business. Nor is there a manual that spells it all out for you when courting brand new projects. This industry is ever-changing, and you have to learn how to invest in and adapt to the latest trends, printers, tools, vinyl film, installation techniques, etc.
