Attention Grabbing

Research shows that vehicle advertising stands apart from other forms of media because of its size, location and continued presence. Brightly colored, well executed vehicle wraps with large logos and big messages are disruptive and can't be ignored by commuters. The numbers don't lie.

  • 75% of the people surveyed developed a first impression about a company and its products from wrap advertising.

  • 91% of people notice ads mounted on the sides of trucks and can recall the wrap days later.

  • Nearly a third of people would base a buying decision on the impression they got from the vehicle.

  • Vehicles are the best way to provide targeted, mobile coverage over an entire marketing area.

Reach on-the-go consumers where they are

Consumers spend significant time on their commute and away from home. On average, Americans spend 20 hours per week on the road. Often, consumers will see trucks, vans, enclosed trailers and cars with wrapped graphics while they are on the path to purchase, such as driving to the store or local mall; this creates an ideal opportunity to place the brands top of mind.

Vehicle wrap advertising allows the company to turn their car, van, trailer, truck or box truck into a moving billboard for their business. With an effective design and detailed message a vehicle wrap gives brand exposure to literally thousands of potential customers.

A vehicle wrap earns additional impressions from pedestrians and passing traffic when the vehicle is parked or positioned at a job site. In addition, branding provides permanence — your advertising is always working and visible whether the vehicle is parked or in motion. This is a benefit you don't have with broadcast media, direct mail or social media.

Cost per impression

The number one benefit of using a vehicle wrap is that they provide the lowest cost per impression of any advertising method. The American Trucking Association and the Outdoor Advertising Association of America that tracks advertising statistics both state that vehicle wraps cost about $1 per thousand impressions compared to $2 for static billboards or $12 for a social media ad.
