Food truck wraps, like other types of vehicle wraps, are adhesive vinyl signs applied to a vehicle’s exterior. We fabricate them from 3M vinyl, which is very thin at 2mil thick and durable in order to resist drag while driving and weather damage while being displayed outdoors most or all of the time.
3M vehicle film is a cast vinyl, meaning it curves to fit the shape of the surface it is applied to. Wraps can effectively adhere and be displayed around corners and over rivets on vehicles like food carts.
They are applied with an acrylic adhesive backing on the film. This is a pressure activated adhesive that, once cured 24 hours after installation, will hold the vinyl to the truck for around 4 years, depending on weather conditions. 3M also manufacturers their vinyl films with air release channels that prevent bubbles forming during installation for a paint-like finish.
Using the dimensions of your food truck or cart, the vinyl sheet is cut the specific size for each panel. When a full coverage food truck wrap is not needed, vinyl can also be cut into other custom shapes and sizes to create:
Partial Wraps – Rather than covering the entire truck or cart, a vinyl decal can be used to provide a decorative or informative appearance when applied to a part of your vehicle. It can be a menu, product photo, logo, or artistic element. Partial wraps can be cut into any size, up to that of the maximum dimensions of the truck.
Vinyl Lettering – Custom cut letters can provide your business name and necessary DOT identification information when needed. The letters are available in standard fonts, but can also be cut to match special fonts used in your business logo.
The 3M vinyl sheets use a white background of polyethylene-coated paper that the desired design is printed onto. Designs can be both color or black and white, and the background color is printed onto the white base. The printing process utilizes:
Easy to Keep Clean – Food trucks with wraps can still be cleaned in a carwash or with a pressure washer. They also resist dust and stains when fuel or debris is cleaned immediately. They can also give your truck a cleaner appearance.
Replaceable – As your business evolves, your food truck design can evolve alongside. Wraps can be removed when needed and replaced with a new wrap that shows updated graphics, name, or menu.
Covers Previous Paint – If your vehicle was previously used for a different purpose or company, a vinyl decal can cover the previous design, including graffiti.
Extends Vehicle Life – The wrap acts as a buffer between your vehicle’s paint and the elements that can deteriorate it, such as sunlight, rain, and salt, as well as chips and scratches incurred while driving.
