When you want to advertise and use your vehicle or vehicles to do it, are you going to pay a professional to paint them? That takes time, it is messy and expensive, and then when you want to sell the vehicles, you have to scrape the paint off to make a sale. Instead, there are window clings, vehicle magnets, and vehicle decals. All of these have their pros and cons.
Window clings are vinyl decals that adhere to your vehicle’s windows via static electricity. A little water tends to create extra suction if you want the clings to stick harder. These you can adhere to the windows on the doors of your vehicle or to the rear windshield, so long as your rear view is not entirely occluded. They are the cheapest means of advertising on your vehicles. Because they are so easy to remove and reposition on another window, you can use them on just about any other glass surface too.
Vehicle magnets are giant magnets designed to advertise your business from the doors of your vehicle. They can be imprinted with any and all of your business information, logos, colors, etc. You will need to order two if you want the information to be on both of your vehicle’s front doors or back doors, if applicable. They are the second least expensive option for business advertising on your vehicle. They are also the easiest to remove because they are just magnets. Unfortunately, that is also a “con” of these big magnets, as anyone can remove them.
Vehicle decals are your most expensive option here. However, they are still far cheaper than professional auto paint jobs when it comes to using space on your vehicles for advertising. You can think of these decals as giant stickers you slap on the sides of the vehicles. They can be custom-made to reflect your business information and fit certain vehicles. They can travel the length of the sides of your vehicles, or just cover the hoods or front doors; your choice.
The “cons” of vehicle decals is that you have to be very careful when applying them or you could apply them crookedly. You may need a professional auto detailer’s help. You also have to contend with sticky residue removal when you take the decals off and either sell the vehicles or replace the decals with updated ones. Fortunately for most businesses that opt to use decals, they do not change their business information for at least a decade after getting started, and there are sticker residue removal kits that make these decals easy to remove.
After You Have Made Your Choice
After you have selected which of the above forms of advertising you want to put on your vehicles, you can order everything you need from a single printing company. Anytime you need to recreate your vehicle advertising choice, you only have to call in the changes for “reprints.” If you decide that you do not like the option you have chosen, you can always try one of the other options above.
