How Does Vehicle Lettering Differ From Vehicle Wraps?
Unlike full vehicle wraps that cover your entire vehicle, vehicle lettering is more cost-effective, versatile, and minimalistic. This is because vehicle lettering focuses only on text and comes without graphics.
Vehicle lettering is perfect for those who want to make a bold statement without fully concealing their vehicle.
Can I Install Vehicle Lettering Myself?
While vehicle lettering is a lot more straightforward to install compared to vehicle wraps, it’s best to leave it to the experts. This is because vehicle lettering that hasn’t been installed properly can look unprofessional and bubbly. As a business owner looking to advertise on the go, the last thing you want to leave is a weak impression on potential customers.
Another downside to a DIY installation of vehicle lettering is your paint job. If you choose to change things up further down the line, you may risk damaging your paint job if the lettering is improperly installed.
Best Practices for Effective Vehicle Lettering
Go With the Right Font
With the number of fonts available for you to choose from, picking the right one can feel daunting. A good starting point is to go with fonts that align with your current branding.
It’s also important to use a font that is easily legible. For example, fonts that look like calligraphy or script are interesting to look at, but hard to read at first glance. On the other hand, sans-serif and simple serif fonts are easily legible.
If you do choose a font that isn’t easily readable, consider including a logo or web address in a more legible font.
Choose Contrasting Colors
For the most effective vehicle lettering, it’s important to choose colors that contrast with your vehicle. This will help avoid the chance that your lettering isn’t easily legible due to blending in with your vehicle’s color.
If your vehicle is black or white, choosing the opposite color is easy. However, if your vehicle color is more vibrant, use a color wheel to identify a complementary color.
Use the 10-by-1 Rule for Text Size
In general, the larger the text, the more impactful. However, not everyone is able to create lettering large enough to cover the side of their vehicle.
A good rule of thumb in the sign industry is the 10-by-1 rule. According to this rule, letters that are 1 inch tall can be read as far as 10 feet away. With each inch added, you gain 10 feet of readability.
Keep it Simple
As the saying goes, less is often more. It’s especially true when it comes to advertising, as a simple message is easier to get across to passersby. For example, billboard experts often recommend that a message be no longer than seven words.
How to Care For Vehicle Lettering
Vehicle lettering is a popular option for business owners looking for a minimalistic way to promote their brand. Yet, dealing with the harsh road and tough weather means you’ll need to know how to clean your lettering appropriately.
Thankfully, vehicle lettering is very low-maintenance. Here’s a list of steps to follow when cleaning your vehicle:
Rinse Your Car
Start by rinsing the vehicle off and make sure to douse the area where your lettering is installed. Focus on removing any dirt or debris that has built up on your car.
Use a Non-Abrasive Detergent
After rinsing the car off, use a gentle, non-abrasive automotive detergent and clean water. Make sure that the detergent doesn’t contain alcohol or other harsh ingredients that may damage the vehicle.
Use a soft sponge or cloth and gently scrub the areas of the car where the lettering is installed.
Rinse the car off a second time and make sure to remove all the detergent from the vehicle.
Let it Dry
Here, you can sit back and let the vehicle air dry on its own. Alternatively, if you’re in a hurry, use a soft microfiber cloth to gently dry off the decal. Consider using a squeegee for areas with excess water.
