Working on photography & retouching for large format vinyl vehicle graphic wraps.
Not everyone can create quality artwork for vinyl vehicle graphics. Printing jobs, especially large format design and printing jobs like a van or box truck fleet graphics, are the most challenging. The quality of the original photos have to be good, the resolution has to be high, and the size has to be correct. Even though most will see your vinyl vehicle graphics from afar, many will see it close up as well, so they should be sharp and interesting to look at, like a piece of artwork. That's why we do such a good job on the retouching.
Every photo needs retouching, especially when used for vinyl vehicle graphics wraps and truck fleets. The above image of the safe was moved and photographed in many different positions. The face of the safe was most important and photographed on an angle that didn't have too many bad reflections. The right of the safe had serious reflection issues, so it was easier to totally recreated it. Also, the shape of the safe was retouched to be straight. The result was a piece of art that was now worthy of being printed large and installed on a vehicle.
Working On Line Art For Van And Truck Graphic Wraps And Printing.
Vehicle graphics on vans, trailers or truck fleets can be designed, printed and installed in many different ways. There are times when a client may request some logo artwork like the opened gates below. This type of design shows off your logo big. Therefore the line art needs to be attractive, interesting to look at and sharp when printed.
Researching & Choosing The Right Stock Photos For Van, Truck Or Trailer Graphics Design And Printing.
As we previously stated, the larger the image will be printed, the better quality it need to be. So, for conceptual purposes or to save a lot of money on hiring a photographer, stock photos can't be beat. There are thousand of images to choose from, all professionally photographed and ready to use. Of course they need a little work like resizing and cropping but there's no better, faster or more affordable way to attract attention. Your photos on your phone are not going to make the cut in more ways than one.
Concept Design Turns Your Truck Or Van Fleets & Trailers Into A Real Mobile Billboard.
The most powerful but most expensive form of advertising is called "conceptual". Concepts are brainstormed through researching a client's company and industry. But you won't pay a lot because we work faster than most while providing better quality at the time. A good concept is so important that they are used on everything... website home pages, ads, the front of brochures and of course on fleet graphics for vans, trucks and trailers.
The layout above is to show you the style of bold food tuck or trailer graphics that we create.
We start by shooting hi-rez photography of your actual food. We'll shoot at various angles because we don't which shot will look best on the layout. Then we retouch the chosen images so they look their best when printed n your food truck or trailer. We'll extract them from their backgrounds, soften the edges, color balance them and add some contrast so they'll "pop". Depending on your budget, we may even put a background image like shown above.
The next step is to create a layout on a picture of your actual trailer or truck. After an initial presentation of the layout and a few rounds of revisions, we will then be able to prepare it for print. This includes taking super accurate measurements, setting up a hi-rez print file, printing, drying and installing.
This may seem like a lot of work and probably expensive, but it's not because we're fast and accurate.
