Full vs. Partial Wrap: What’s the Difference?

Right after, “How does this process work?” the most common question we receive is this: What’s the difference between a full vehicle wrap and a partial vehicle wrap or graphic?

In short, a partial vehicle wrap or a vehicle graphic can range from a bumper sticker to an image that covers part of your car or truck. But partial wraps do not cover the entire surface area of your vehicle. Learn more about a partial vehicle wrap or vehicle graphic and how it may be beneficial for your company here.

C.P. Richards Signs creates custom designed vehicle wraps in San Diego, CaliforniaOn the other hand, a full vehicle wrap is more complex. That’s because it covers your vehicle from bumper to bumper. This creative advertising tactic is most beneficial for businesses that operate larger vehicles, such as trailers, vans and trucks, which have the space to accommodate this wrap’s full potential. However, full wraps can also pack a powerful punch on smaller vehicles.

The Advantages of Going Mobile

Vehicle wraps increase your brand’s visibility and its impressions, and increase your company’s marketing success dramatically. In fact, according to the American Trucking Association, one intercity truck with a professional graphic display can generate up to 16 million visual impressions in one year. That means that the cost of this all-wheel exposure is well worth it, considering its per-impression price comparison. Simply put, a vehicle wrap is one of the most cost-effective forms of advertising for small and large businesses everywhere.

But there’s more. Wrapping your vehicle will not only enhance your brand, it will protect your car’s paint, too. That’s because we use protective over-laminate with our vehicle wraps, which extends the lifespan and looks of our designs as well as protects your vehicle’s paint from stone chips and minor scratches. In turn, this will preserve your vehicles’ value.

Best of all, mobile advertising allows you to market your company anywhere—and everywhere. From commuters on the road to pedestrians on the sidewalks, vehicle wraps drive you to reach audiences of all ages, genders, backgrounds, incomes and professions.
