Vehicle Wrap: Beard/Mint

Spent the last 2 days getting this done, I haven't done the roof yet though and have to re-do the doors as I used a different black and you can see the difference between them so am going to replace it.

Cheers

Warren

cheers guys, as for the flag I would have thought a foreigner with a large Union Jack on his van would go down pretty well :wink: :lol1:

I'm sure my accent on the phone would put off more people than the flag on my van :-?

I wanted to do something bold yet subtle and cleaner than the big bold bright colours I had before, I think this looks more professional.

cheers

Looks fantastic Warren! What a great advert for your business, very eye catching and smart. Inspirational, hope we can wrap our van to such a high standard one day :D And personally, as it's been mentioned, I don't think there should be any issue with using our national flag on your van, though I can understand the points made. In fact, if it needs to be mentioned at all, then I feel it should be with pride. By the way, love the business name!

ah the black issue... think u got away with it but only looking at photos and not the real thing.

The mint in green looks much better then what I saw before, that works really well.

I like it... great.

I didn't actually get away with it and will be re-doing the front doors, I had some extra printed black wrap vinyl from the last wrap I did and used that on the doors next to a solid black vinyl (KPMF), there is a slight difference between the picture and the solid black but the doors almost look purple in the sunlight :roll:

While on that note I must say I really like the KPMF - K7000, it's the first time I have used it and it's very nice to work with and has a great finish.

Also the green is much brighter as I have used a flourescent green with a matt white, it does look good though and although it has a limited life I am willing to change it when it begins to fade as it looks too good.

cheers

Warren,

Why dont you put the Souf Affrikin flag on the van. You outnumber the pommies that side of the pond anyways!

I like the Lime green on Black. (It is our company colours as well) As soon as the August sand storms are over, I'm going to wrap or pick-up as well.

Top Job, mate!

Well done Warren, lovely job.
Green on the black is very nice.

Like Harry I would have laid the back out slightly differently,

but a fine job and should lead to plenty of similar work hopefully.

Thanks everybody, it's taken me a while to find a picture that I liked and would work as a concept.

I decided to put my details up so high as it is above a normal car level, whenever I am parked up in a parking lot you can see the company name and contact details over the cars so can be read at a distance and details taken as well with out having to look behind obstacles etc.

I wish my prints had of come out as bright as John's though :-? that's what happens when you have to buy from a trade printer, no control :cry:

I was/am considering putting my logo randomly around the "empty" areas in a matt black just to create some added effects but keeping it subtle, it's still under consideration though.

cheers

Good job mate. Will be doing my van soon & seeing yours has given me some more motivation! I too have to buy prints in from the trade & am always annoyed that they're never as sharp of full of colour as their own! Hmmm...

Trouble is, when you insist on 8 pass printing, they're always reluctant to do so. Do you want the work or not? :lol1:

Interesting comment. I do 8 pass prints for all my wholesale clients whether they ask for it or not (depending on the end use)... might explain why they keep coming back I guess :P

D'oh! if only international postage wasn't so slow and expensive!

Before I knew what to ask for I got caught quite badly with print quality, I have found that some companies use 'budget' type setting as standard unless you stipulate otherwise.

Could be different now of course, that was a wee while ago.

I agree everything is either 8 pass or 16 pass around here. All our profiles are built utilizing these settings so we can achieve a wider colour gamut. Even banners are 8 pass.

Tha'ts right Dan. Pretty sure 720x720 is usually 8 pass. 1440x1440 is 16 pass well in Versaworks it is.

3 years on and eventually got a chance to re-wrap my van, I never did change the black vinyl to match the printed and the "Orange" looking print bugged me for a long time but time was always an issue to get it re-done so it stayed like that for 3 years. Now I have an employee so got him to strip and clean the van and yesterday got a chance to apply the new wrap. Branding has changed slightly in the last few years as I am now a limited company and also have a dark grey background rather than black and more of a lime green rather than a grass green colour.

Anyway I am much much happier with this new wrap that I got to print at a decent quality myself and spent more time deciding what to go with and ended up using 3m dark grey matt along with a gloss print (my business card is the same matt and gloss)

Hope you like.

cheers

Warren
