Got plans for making a food truck? Here are some tips and tricks to ensure long lasting graphics and installation.
Design- usually, anything goes…However, a simple and clean design lend well to brand longevity. Remember they’re there for your food, no matter how cool your logo or graphics are. Budget $250-500 for a nice layout with you providing high resolution content. Each food truck is different so placement and how the graphics are overlaid are crucial to each wrap.
Truck Body- If you build a food truck from scratch, consider at minimum a clear coat finish. Wrap vinyl needs to have a stable surface to adhere to, having diamond plate, or an unfinished surface can cause lifting and ruin a wrap down the road. Same goes for previously “custom” painted trucks where to save money, the previous owner hand painted the whole truck with latex or some kind of brush paint. We’ve received a few of those over the years. The only solution is to send it to a body shop and have the paint sand blasted and new coat of paint and clear coat. We do not suggest wrapping over existing custom paint graphics
Installation- Power wash and clean the truck before delivery to our bay, specify specific items that are custom to your truck that we need to make sure doesn’t get covered, like LnI Stickers or registration sticker. Plan on us having the truck 4-5 days after production has started on your approved design.
