Vehicle Graphics: Purple Abstract Vehicle Wrap

Just wanted to let you see my own near completed van. Products used:

Grafityp wrap and laminate
Roland Sol Jet Pro III XC540
Genuine Roland Eco Sol Max inks
Laminated on Easymount 1380SH
Aurora Graphics Vol 2

Took about 22 linear meters of each product (and loads of ink!).

Scariest moment?.. Hitting the print button!

James Deacon did all the hard stuff!

Now I have to come up with a layout for my logo/words etc on the sides, front and back. Trouble is, it's almost a shame to spoil the overall design with text! Even as it is, it's already turning some heads - after all, that is the idea!!

(mod-edit) please post suggested comments in the appropriate forum

First I had to fins a spare room to let the prints gas off over the weekend. Although they can't all be seen here, there are 12 sheets for the whole van.

Certainly looks a great job.

I guess it's going to be tough to make the sign writing stand out without spoiling the look.

WOW that sends my eyes funny, hope I don't have to follow it :o

I am about to wrap a Trafic and wondered if to wrap vertical or horizontal? I remember James saying never to have a vertical join over the contour of the panel, so did you do the drivers side vertical or horizontal?

Cheers

Hi Dave,

I printed my Vivaro vertical. I think any recesses would prove difficult if printed horizontal.

Good luck!

that stands out nicely,as peter says, would recon the wording will have to be very eyecatching and bold to stand out, will keep an eye out in the graphic help forum :D
