Many businesses in NYC and NJ rely on vans to drive to service jobs or make deliveries. In such densely populated areas, thousands of people can see your van throughout the workday. For those with a fleet of vans, this impact grows exponentially. If your van or fleet is unbranded, your business is missing out on valuable impressions.
Van wraps are a custom printed vinyl that is applied to a vehicle for a look similar to a paint job, yet they are temporary, highly detailed, and won’t damage the van. Printed with business logos, contact information, and promotional imagery, van wraps allow business owners to take advantage of a capital investment they already have.

Van wraps are made from a high grade cast vinyl film created especially for vehicle wraps, which is designed to adhere cleanly and flush to most vehicle surfaces and appear permanent – almost like paint. Wraps will last about 4-5 years, depending on weather and where the van is stored, before they need to be replaced. During that time, wraps can function as a mobile billboard and help protect the van’s paint.
Businesses frequently benefit from vinyl wraps. They provide free mobile branding and advertising, generating views that would otherwise cost thousands. They are more professional, and those that see them feel more trust in the driver. They also have the potential to reduce theft.
The three manufacturers of vehicle wrap film are 3M, Oracal, and Avery, with 3M being the original and the manufacturer most often used. Their vinyl film is a 4mil, 150g weight opaque vinyl. The front is a white, polyethylene-coated paper and it is backed with an acrylic adhesive.
The choices for customizing the design of each vinyl wrap for a van include:
Wraps can cover an entire vehicle so that none of the original paint shows. The film can also be trimmed to a custom shape for a partial covering, such as the sides of a van, a cut out of a graphic, or a decal of your business logo. The dimensions for any shape are cut for a smooth and exact shape that will look permanent when applied.
Vinyl film can be printed with any graphics using wide format printers and UV inks. To ensure tone accuracy and vibrancy, graphics are always printed on white vinyl, and PMS is used when exact colors are needed. The inks are fade resistant and designed to last in all weather conditions.
Vinyl wraps are available in satin, matte, or glossy finishes. They are laminated to protect the graphics after printing, but can also have an overlay applied during installation to offer additional protection against wear and scratches that can occur during driving and use.
When you need to display fleet numbers on your vehicle for the Department of Transportation or want to advertise a business name or contact information, vinyl letters can be cut from the film and applied to any part of the van. Black is standard for DOT letters, but there are more than a dozen colors of vinyl film available, including metallics.
Each wrap, whether full or partial, is sized to the dimensions of the specific vehicle, based on manufacturer data. The year, make, and model of your van will be needed before beginning the design.
During the design process, the artist should take into account the placement of graphics when the vinyl is placed onto the vehicle. This includes using blueprints of the van for accurate measurements and considering ridges and corners in the van’s construction. Pixel Wraps has a team of in-house graphic designers who can render a design to fit the make and model of your van.
Wraps should also be applied by a 3M certified installer. With professional installation, the van is cleaned and accessory objects like bumpers and headlights are removed. The vinyl wrap is then positioned and adhered to the surface of the van with pressure and heat guns.
By stretching the vinyl throughout the process, the vinyl goes on more smoothly and conforms to the van’s curves. Air is able to escape through special air channels built in the film, preventing it from becoming trapped and creating a bubble. After installation, the vinyl is given 12 to 24 hours for the adhesive to set, after which the van is ready to be on the road.
