Sign companies, printers, print brokers, marketing and advertising agencies and freelance graphic designers who need access to a wholesale vehicle wrap printing provider need to know how to choose a company that can truly be a strategic partner. Oftentimes, you may not have access to the right equipment, wrap materials or vinyl inventory to ensure fast vehicle wrap printing turnaround in order to meet your client’s needs.
There are some outsourcing tips and questions you should ask ahead of time to ensure the vehicle wrap printing company you choose stands above the rest in professionalism as well as having a grasp of the best practices in managing many projects as once. Below are some tips to help you make a smart decision.
Specific Offerings – If you choose a company that specializes in every kind of sign making along with the ability to provide wrap printing, their focus may not be one the one thing you need—expertly printed vehicle wraps. You want to look for a sign company whose main focus is vehicle wraps to ensure your outsourced jobs are clearly understood and are a priority. It may be best to avoid those not dedicated 100 percent to your client’s wraps and instead, look for professionals who are focused on your vehicle wrap needs—not a plethora of jobs including signs, brochures or promotional advertising tools for other clients. You don’t want your project to be backlogged based on the wide variety of services printers such as these provide.
Experience – This is particularly essential when it comes to choosing a wholesale vehicle wrap printing provider. A few vehicle wrap printing jobs in a portfolio doesn’t make one an expert in this area. Ask questions of the sign company such as how long they’ve been a wholesale printer. What type of materials and inventory do they possess? What equipment do they use and how will they ensure your designs will be printed accurately so they’re ready for wrap installation. Are they familiar with the most popular materials that are heavy-duty and of high quality? What do they promise as far as turnaround time?
Installation Experience – This is extremely important to those who have created the vehicle wrap design and have the artwork but can’t print the wraps, nor do they have knowledgeable staff to install the wraps once printed. A company that specializes in vehicle wraps and graphics will have staff with years of experience in vehicle wrap installation. You also need to look for those who partner with installers nationwide who they trust will be able to complete the wrap installation. In other words, look for a sign company that can print your artwork and install it at their facility or ship to a trusted installer in your area.
Committed Partnerships – Experts in vehicle wrap printing are also companies that can become life-long partners and develop a relationship with your company. A wholesale vehicle wrap printing provider that has the ability to make creative suggestions in materials, artwork and template design based on the vehicle at hand are by far the best companies to partner with. Sign companies that give you a quote and timeline but once hired, leave you outside of the process often leads to miscommunication and poor results. It’s also important to seek out vehicle wrap companies with extensive portfolios and a large client base. Choose a company that asks questions, involves you in the process and becomes a strategic partner, not just a vendor.
