On the road, trailers are one of the largest vehicles around. Their sides, anywhere from 10′ to almost 50’ long, are often filled with nothing but empty space. But with the right box trailer wrap, what you really have is a canvas with extensive space that works well for large scale graphics. These wraps are a great way to advertise a business, brand trailer ownership, and get views while on the road.

Trailer wraps are a long-lasting vinyl film, printed with custom artwork, that attaches to the sides and back of the trailer. With the look of paint but not the permanence, trailer wraps take your company’s investment and bring in a great return on its value with increased sales through advertising.
They also come in two types, full trailer wrap, and partial trailer wraps. A full trailer wrap can have the back, sides, and even the cab covered with vinyl that can be viewed from any side. Alternatively, a partial wrap can cover a portion of the trailer either with a rectangular or a custom-shaped trimmed graphic. It can be even your business logo or other information.
Each trailer wrap is individually printed and cut to size based on the dimensions of the trailer, or the desired dimensions of the design. Trimming is completed in-house using state-of-the-art precision-cut devices. These devices also create a factory cut edge that will sit on the trailer and give it that permanent appearance.
We use vinyl film from the Avery, 3M, and Oracal vehicle wrap product lines for our trailer wrap- full or partial. It is a four mil thick cast vinyl in pure white so that colors print accurately onto the material. For dark backgrounds, the coloring is done in the printing rather than by using tinted vinyl, allowing for more vivid imagery.
You can get any graphic printed onto the vinyl film through direct digital printing on wide-format printers. Through the use of latex inks, the range of possible colors allows for durable and photo-accurate imagery. Text, logos, and illustrations can also be printed onto vinyl film. The inks are UV-resistant so they will not fade in the sunlight when the trailer is in service.
There are different customization options that we provide that include:
After printing, a laminate can be applied that protects the printed graphics and vinyl from scratches and chips. It can help extend the life of the vinyl if a more permanent installation is required or if the trailer will be driving regularly through more inclement weather.
Vinyl comes from the manufacturer in either a glossy or matte finish. Glossy finishes tend to stand out with a slight shine, though they can show dirt more easily and might have a slight glare in bright light. Matte is easier to keep clean and in good condition.
To match the colors in a logo or your specific business palette, we use the Pantone Matching System to choose exact colors.
Customers can also choose between temporary removable or semi-permanent graphics with different vinyl films and options like overlaminate providing increased longevity. Semi-permanent wraps will typically last up to five years while temporary vinyl is designed for shorter-term use. Like all vehicle wraps, both kinds can be removed when needed, leaving a largely untouched trailer underneath.
Trailer wraps are effective in helping companies effectively advertise their brand. There are many different companies in NYC and NJ that we have been working with to make trailer wraps for them. They include:
For designs, If it’s a full wrap, the graphics are sized to the exact dimensions of the trailer, or to the covered area for a partial wrap. This is done by your business’s designing team or if you don’t have yours then it can be done by our in-house designers at Pixel Wraps.
As a 3M certified installer, we place vinyl wraps onto tractor-trailers through the 3M recommended process. This involves completely cleaning the vehicle and then placing the vinyl onto the trailer. The adhesive is pressure-activated, but will typically be applied with heat guns as well for a smooth finish. After installation, the vinyl will cure for 24 hours before the vehicle is ready for service again.
With a few special considerations for cleaning, trailer wraps require minimal maintenance during their service life. They are durable and can resist sun, water, chips, and scratches. Regular cleaning through hand washing or a brushless car wash can remove built-up dirt. Fuel spills and debris like tree sap or bird droppings should be cleaned off as soon as possible to avoid damage.
Damage like scratches to the vinyl can also sometimes be removed through the application of heat. This can be done by an individual with experience in vinyl wraps, or by a professional.
If you want you can easily get your trailer wrap removed when needed or after they start to degrade – typically after 5 or more years. The wrap is peeled off, but professional removal ensures the paint below remains undamaged and handles any places where the vinyl has adhered.
To assist our clients throughout the lifetime of their trailer wrap, we provide you with design, installation, and maintenance services, as well as removal services when it is time to replace a wrap.
