Benefits of Advertising with a Bus Wraps
Advertise for your business by adding a full vehicle graphic wrap to your marketing strategy. According to a study by Geopath, vehicle wraps make thirty thousand to seventy thousand daily impressions. Not only does your brand get noticed, but the vinyl wrap will also increase your brand recognition and increase familiarity with your business. When it comes to decision making, people pick based on logos they recognize. The American Trucking Association points out that twenty-nine percent of viewers would make a purchase based on a vehicle they saw. While you are driving to your next destination, the wrap work for you with little effort. For smaller companies, it legitimizes their business and increases sales.
Full Bus Wrap vs Partial Bus Wrap
Showcase your business while on the road. Full Bus Wrap and Partial Bus Wrap are both excellent choices. Both types of vinyl wraps are very efficient tools to attract and promote your business anywhere, anytime. They have their unique perks. Why buy a Full Wrap? A full wrap covers 100% of your vehicle, including the front, back, sides, and some people may include the roof and windows too. A full vehicle wrap makes the advertisement more visible and eye-catching. For bus resale purposes, a full bus wrap protects the original paint and does not suffer from the graphic ghosting effect. In other words, when the wrap is no longer needed, the graphic can be removed without leaving paint discoloration and logo markings. In turn, it protects the resale value of the vehicle and prevents your design from showing poorly on the next owner’s vehicle after it is sold.
Before Installing Your Bus Graphics Wrap
The preparation before wrapping your vehicle is crucial for an effective and durable Bus Wrap. We recommend you wash the vehicle a day before the scheduled wrap. Make sure the car wash service does not include wax. Before the application, the vehicle must be as clean as possible. If not, the 3M Vinyl Adhesive will not stick correctly to the bus. Please do not wash the vehicle the same day as the scheduled appointment. For a vehicle to be completely dry, it needs to be washed the day before and preferably kept indoors, so it can dry thoroughly and be free of dust and pollen.

Taking good care of your Bus Wrap is critical for its durability. The color and laminate coatings for 3M 180 Vinyl Wrap Film are designed to last up to 5 years. By washing your truck frequently and parking on the shade, it will make the wrap last even longer.
Pressure Activated Adhesive for Edge Wrap
The 3M 180 Vinyl Wrap Film can be stretched up to 40 percent. This stretching capability makes the molding around curves, and sharp bumper edges simple for a trained installer and prevents peeling from the edges. Using a high-quality adhesive for the vehicle edges of the wrap separates an excellent quality car wrap service to the rest of the competition.
3M 180 Vinyl Wrap Film’s Non-Visible air release channels
3M 180 Vinyl laminate is considered one of the best due to the film’s bubble-free application. It has invisible air release channels allowing air to escape. These air release channels aid the installer in applying a bubble-free wrap. This feature is what makes the 3M vinyl film the best.
