Buses are often used as an advertising tool. They offer a considerable amount of unused space, and with a custom bus wrap, both private companies and local municipalities have an opportunity to create or sell space by covering them in custom vinyl. These vinyl wraps look like paint, and can be printed with almost any design or graphic to transform the look of the bus. With over 30 years of experience in the signage industry,

Options for Custom Bus Wraps in NJ

With the right vinyl films, an entire bus can be wrapped with printed graphics, including the windows. The 3M vehicle and window vinyl product lines offer various films for different applications. The ones most commonly used on trailer wraps and bus wraps are:

Vehicle Vinyl – This lightweight, 2mil opaque vinyl is used on most surfaces of the vehicle. It has a pressure-activated adhesive backing that sticks to most bus substrates, including aluminum, paint, and ABS resins.

Transparent Vinyl – So that windows can still be safely seen through, designs can be printed onto a transparent vinyl. This design is visible to both those inside and outside the vehicle, making it useful on buses where passengers could see it.

Full Color or Black and White Graphics – Graphics are printed onto vinyl with latex inks that are UV-resistant. Full color designs are applied to the vinyl with a four color, digital printing process so that clarity is not lost during transfer.

Matte or Glossy Finishes – Vinyl film is available with a matte or glossy finish. Matte vinyl is less able to show dust and glare free. Glossy vinyl can be more visible after installation.

These films are made of cast vinyl, giving it the ability to be melded around curves, compound curves, corrugated surfaces, and flat surfaces with rivets. They are cut from the manufacturer’s sheets to the sizes required for each panel where they will be installed. In addition the right vinyl for vehicle applications, there are also options to customize other features of the wrap including:

Installation of the Custom Vinyl Graphics

In addition to full and partial wraps, it is also possible to create decals and lettering, such as DOT signs, from vinyl film. These can be used for either advertising purposes or to meet regulations put forth by the Department of Transportation.

When the vinyl vehicle film has been printed and cut to size for your vehicle model, it can be applied. Bus wraps are self-adhering due to the adhesive backing on the film that requires only pressure to activate it. The wrap is applied by positioning it, starting with an edge or corner, and working slowly across the vehicle. A small squeegee is used to force out any air bubbles throughout the process which escapes through built in air release channels.

Window vinyl use a “wet method” application process that includes moistening both the window and the vinyl. The vinyl is positioned and given time to dry, at which point the adhesive seals it to the glass.

Both methods can require a few days of installation time, especially for larger buses. However, once installed, graphics can last for up to 5 years and are resistant to typical weather conditions, as well as the alkalis and acids present in pollution.

It is also possible to create shorter term use temporary bus wraps that will be installed for only a few weeks or months. These can be easily removed when no longer needed.

Why Companies Use Bus Wraps

Whether for branding or advertising, vinyl bus wraps offer a convenient and cost effective way to customize a vehicle with advantages such as:

Advertising – Buses are often one of the largest vehicles on the road. When their large scale and mobility are coupled with full color designs, they provide easily noticed advertising that can generate revenue.

Brand Recognition for Passengers – A bus with your company’s name, colors, and logo on it makes it easy for customers to identify. This can make it reassuring and professional for passengers.

Replaceable – Instead of permanent paint, vinyl wraps can be removed and replaced when needed. This makes it possible to update vehicles as needed.

Protects Bus – A vinyl wrap can extend the lifespan of the bus by protecting the paint from sun, rain, rust, scratches, and other sources of discoloration and damage.

Vinyl wraps can also be customized to different budgets, such as by using a partial wrap or decals for a more inexpensive option, or leaving the windows uncovered. This can make them affordable for most businesses.

Industries That Are Leading With Bus Wraps and Graphics

Any bus or other vehicle can be wrapped in a custom printed vinyl film. Businesses that often use promotional vinyl graphics on their buses include:

Common design elements for bus wraps used in these industries include the company logo, photography, address and phone number, and coloring to match the business aesthetic.

Gogi Signs Services for Vehicle Wraps

Ordering and applying a vinyl wrap involves more than fabrication. Wraps need to be designed to the specific measurements of the make and model of the vehicle. Installation, especially of full or partial wraps, is typically done by professionals so that it fits properly and does not damage the paint. Beyond fabrication, we also have:

Vehicle Wrap Design

For companies that do not have a graphic designer familiar with vehicle wrapping, our in house designers can transfer your design into one that meets the dimensions of your vehicle. They can also work with you if you only have a general idea and no set designs.

Vehicle Wrap Installation

We can install every type of vinyl graphic onto your business vehicles. As 3M certified installers, we use the approved process that protects the vehicle’s paint, creates a smooth finish, and lasts for 4 to 5 years.

Vehicle Wrap Maintenance

Many wraps can be maintained with regular cleaning and proper storage. For additional needs, we can assist in maintaining the look of your vehicle wrap.

Vehicle Wrap Removal

It is also recommended that removal be done by a professional to prevent any damage to the paint. We use heat and chemicals to cleanly strip the wrap, and this results in a smooth removal if there has been extra adhesion in wraps past the end of their lifespan.
