Vehicle Wrap Tips
We recently helped Health to Hope in creating an RV vehicle wrap for their traveling “Health on Wheels” Mobile Unit. Health to Hope strives to promote and provide public health among those in economic crisis. Their belief is that everyone is entitled to healthcare, whether homeless or comes from a low-income background.
One of their mobile units, “Health in Motion” works on reaching out to communities that are unable to make it to their clinics. Their services are available, while payment is the least of their concerns.
The wrap we created includes a landscape that resembles the mountains seen across the Inland Empire. The vehicle also includes contact information where you can reach the organization for more information. For more information on our RV vehicle wraps or for more examples, check out this page!
Sting like a Honey Stinger! Honey Stinger is known for it’s delicious and nutritious honey based foods such as energy bars, protein bars, energy gel, organic waffles, organic chews, kid’s snacks and of course their organic wildflower honey! The company is based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. You can find their products at sporting good stores, natural food shops, and their website www.honeystinger.com.
We kept with the theme by using yellow honeycombs in order to represent Honey Stinger’s honey based foods! Using a simple design, creates a clean and organized look while still grabbing attention with a jaw dropping logo! While most companies like to add other information on their vehicles, such as contact info, we added Honey Stinger’s hashtag “#StingorBeeStung” Using hashtags is another way to keep audience in contact via social media. We cater to all requests and accept any challenge!
It’s important to stay organized and efficient when designing your wrap. An unorganized wrap will bog up valuable memory and slow you down when you navigate the design.
You can mock up the design of your wrap by using layer masks. This helps to hide all of the extra artwork that bleeds off of the edge of the car.
You can accomplish this by copying the main body of the car to a new art layer underneath the template. Remove the fill from the template layer and lock it to make sure it stays out of the way. In the example, I’ve named my layers Template and Art.
Insert your artwork into the “ART” layer behind the copy of vehicle outline. In order for the mask to work, the artwork has to behind whatever you’re using to mask it. Select both of the objects and go to Object>Clipping Mask>Make.
An easy way to add to or edit the clipping mask is to right click and go to “Isolate selected clipping mask”.
The example shows “Before” on the top and “After” below.
When working with print, one of the most important things to pay attention to is resolution. Taking the time to understand the basics of image quality will help you to create artwork that is professional and clear.
I’m going to be using Photoshop here to inspect and manipulate the image, but there are also other free alternatives out there which can accomplish the same goal.
One of the first things I usually do when inspecting images for print is to look at the color mode. You can do this by going to IMAGE>MODE and taking a look at which color mode is checked. The color should either be CMYK or grayscale. You can see that the image in this example is grayscale.
Next, you can take a look at the image size. I usually try to determine how large I can make the image and then deciding whether or not that works for whatever you’re using it in. Take a look at the image size by going to IMAGE>IMAGE SIZE.
You can see the image is 18.3×12.2 inches with a resolution of 240 DPI (Dots Per Inch). Here at Monster Media, our printers require a resolution of 75 DPI to produce an acceptable print. This means that any dpi that is over DPI can be resampled to create a larger image if needed.
When you uncheck the “resample image” checkbox and change the resolution to 75 DPI, your image size will automatically adjust to show the maximum print size.
Our image turns out to have a maximum print size is 58.65×39.04 inches.
The last thing to do is zoom in to 100% and confirm that everything looks good. Here’s our image at 100%. You can see everything looks sharp and clear.
Sometimes it’s hard to anticipate the car’s curves and angles when you’re looking a two-dimensional image on the screen.
Most of the time, it helps to look at the car in person and take notes on the possible problem areas.
Bring a print-out of the vehicle. Take measurements. Circle the problem areas and scribble notes in the margin. The more information you can gather, the easier it becomes to identify the space that you have available in your artwork.
If you don’t have access to the car in person, grab pictures with google image search of the car and take quick notes on the different views of the car.
The best practice to help your design translate well when it’s applied to the car in the end is to keep important text and images away from the edges and allow plenty of extra bleed space at the edges of the artwork. If the text runs to the edge of the car, you risk cutting off important pieces of information.
Another thing that people find challenging when beginning to design a vehicle wrap is the question of composition. The lines and curves of the car interfere with the standard grids of composition.
Try following the body lines of the car and lining up the text elements with the windows.
So you’re the proud owner of a brand spanking new wrap!? Sick Bro!!!
Unfortunately, in time you will realize that Mother Nature is going to get totally jealous of all the attention of your sweet new billboard on wheels will bring by covering it from mud to bird poop.
Here are 2 incredibly imporant tips on how to get the most out of your wrap and keeping it well preserved for years to come. (Kind of like those candies your Grandma has had on her coffee table since you were 5)
1. DON’T TAKE YOUR CAR TO AN AUTOMATED CARWASH!!!
These places, as convenient as it may be, use alot of abrasive methods and caustic materials to transform you car from a dust covered embarrassment to a squeaky clean whip your girlfriend wont be embarrassed to be seen in.
Unfortunately, this process can cause extensive damage to your fancy new wrap, which brings us to our next tip…
2. DO HAND WASH YOUR CAR!!!
Yeah, I know, you’d rather be playing Xbox in your boxers, but her me out… using a soft hand towel or soft sponge combined with regular soap and water will keep your wrap spotless without destroying it in the process, as well as extending the life of your car wrap.

Installing a Carbon Fiber Roof Wrap and Carbon Fiber Hood Wrap
Installation is easy. This material is pressure activated and can be moved and re-positioned as you install it. The tools required are minimal. All that is required is a razor knife, squeegee, and heat-gun or hair dryer. Additional primer recommended for some edges, depends on the application. Average installation time runs between 45 minutes to 2 hours, it really just depends on if you have help from a friend or co-worker.
Carbon Fiber Wrap Reviewed
It’s love at first sight. We recently wrapped the hood of a custom Mitsubishi Lancer with 3M Di-Noc carbon fiber and the result was amazing. Everyone in the shop came down to take a look. Nobody could believe how realistic it looked. Some people actually said they liked the way it looked over the actual carbon fiber spoiler on the back. It was really cool to be able to compare the two on the same vehicle – real carbon fiber spoiler v. carbon fiber hood wrap – and see the difference. We recorded a video of the installation to show how easy it is to install for both professional installers and the “at-home enthusiast.”
