Car Decals – How They Help Your Business
Getting your message onto a car or any other type of vehicle using custom decals is a fantastic way to boost the success of your business. A decal is generally the term for a digitally printed sticker that is soaked in water to soften the glue and then applied to the chosen area.
These can cover any flat surface whether it is glass, paintwork, plastic or metal. The quality of decals can really give your car a unique look without it being a dangerous distraction on the road.
Which Businesses Will Benefit From Decal Advertising?
At first thought you might say that businesses with vehicle fleets would get the most benefit from this form of advertising. However, any business can increase exposure and get more customers by using decals.
If decals are done professionally they will boost your exposure every time you take your vehicle on the road. For a brand this is an excellent resource. The more often your brand image is sighted the better.
How To Make Decals Effective
Go as large as you can in the space you have. A decal with images or text that can’t be seen easily will be fairly ineffective. It’s always worth spending money to get assistance in the development and design, as well as the installation, of the decals. This insures consistent quality and if anything goes wrong, the company will rectify it.
If you try to install them personally and make a mistake, money is wasted and you are not covered by any guarantees.
Keep your design striking but simple to read and understand the message. Most people will get a fast glance, so be sure what you have is instant recognition. A catchy name or short headline that describes what the business will do for them is best. Alternatively, a question can get attention.
No longer than eight words is a good amount for the eyes and brain to take in immediately. Most people can read eight words or less very quickly and understand a message.
Titles can be a great way to do all of that.

Car advertising is seen by other drivers and by pedestrians and although it may not be as targetted as some forms of advertising, good car decals will capture the attention of those looking for a particular service.

Seeing advertising frequently has an effect on people. Be sure that your brand and company image is consistent across all forms of marketing and advertisements. Your logo must always appear and the name of your business, also any catchphrase you may have developed in conjunction with the brand.
Carry this across to everything you do that is connected to the business. Letterheads, shipping stickers, online presence, promotional giveaways etc, everything is a potential sales opportunity. Make designs consistent and ensure the image you project is backed up by the product and service you offer.
