Custom Truck & Pickup Truck Vinyl Wrap Design Ideas

Wrapping your truck or pickup in vinyl is an excellent way to change its appearance, advertise your company, and promote your brand. With high-quality vinyl wraps, your fleet of corporate vehicles will be transformed from trucks to mobile billboards.

What Are Truck Vinyl Wraps?

Truck vinyl wraps are large vinyl graphics, decals, or sheets that adhere to your vehicle, leaving behind a smooth and professional appearance. The vinyl is applied directly over the original paint and is easy to remove, which makes it the best way to change how your vehicle looks.

These customizable truck wraps come in a variety of designs and colors, and you can choose from full or partial truck wraps that fit your specific needs. They are easy to clean and maintain, provide extra protection for your vehicle, prevent scratches and dents, and are an alternative to painting the exterior of your truck when you want to change its appearance.

By wrapping your trucks in vinyl, you will catch the attention of people passing your vehicles on foot or by car. It’s a reliable, low-cost method of advertising your company—and keep in mind that a truck wrap promotes your brand even while the vehicle is parked.

The success of any advertising campaign depends on its ability to reach new audiences and promote your brand. Take advantage of truck vinyl wraps to share your company’s story and contact information with everyone on the road.

7 Custom Truck Wrap Ideas to Advertise Your Business

There are endless cool truck wrap ideas to choose from. You can stick with a simple look featuring a few striking graphics or go all out with a flashy, complex design that attracts the attention of anyone passing by. 

Truck vinyl wraps are blank canvasses. Why not get creative with your design?

1. Pick a Unique Finish

A matte, glossy, or metallic finish will help your truck stand out and turn heads. Choose just the right finish to align with your company’s brand goals and to add flair to whatever wrap design you create.

2. Incorporate Humor

If someone laughs at your truck’s vinyl wrap, they are more likely to remember your company. Incorporating some humor into your wrap design will catch people’s attention.

3. Create an Optical Illusion

It’s easy for people to ignore advertisements. But with three-dimensional tricks or optical illusions as part of your design, your truck wrap will make an eye-catching statement. 

For example, you can design the vinyl wrap to look like something is coming out of the truck or have the walls peel back to reveal what is on the interior of the vehicle. Either way, it’s a creative option to get people to notice your advertising.

4. Choose a Full-Vehicle Wrap

A truck that is fully wrapped on all sides will stand out among other cars and pickups on the road. Better yet, completely wrapping the truck means people will notice it—no matter what direction they approach your vehicle from. 

5. Get Inspiration from Artists

Consider your favorite artists or pieces of artwork to help get ideas for your truck wrap design. Look at a variety of motifs and styles to see what inspires you.

Another option is to work with a local artist to design a truck wrap for your company. You’ll get a unique art piece and build relationships with other professionals in your community at the same time.

6. Use Every Element

Don’t forget about the windows, doors, hood, light fixtures, and bumpers! Every aspect of your truck is valuable wrapping real estate. Think about how you can incorporate these elements into your overall wrap design in a creative way.

7. Add a QR Code

QR codes are a great marketing tool and are becoming increasingly popular on truck wraps and window graphics. Incorporate QR codes and use them to instantly point prospects to your website, social media profiles, a landing page with a coupon, or a gallery of photos. This saves the prospect from having to remember the name of your company or quickly scramble to write jot down your company phone number. If you want to change the QR code later, it can easily be reprinted and replaced on the truck or vehicle.

Tips for Designing Truck Vinyl Wraps

With the help of an experienced printing company, you can create an eye-catching vinyl wrap for any truck, pickup truck, car, or other vehicle. Keep these tips in mind to set your mobile advertisement up for success.

Stay on Brand

Your company’s logo should be prominently displayed as part of your truck wrap—ideally on all sides of the vehicle—to boost brand recognition. Additionally, use your brand’s color palette in the design to ensure your trucks serve as effective ambassadors of your company.

Include a Compelling CTA

A call to action (CTA) makes it easy for prospective customers to reach out to you. Include your phone number, website, email address, and/or social media handles on your truck wrap to ensure people can contact your business

Keep Text Simple

Avoid having too much text or listing a bunch of information on your truck wrap. Why? Because passersby can only take in and remember so much information at a glance. Instead, keep things simple, choose a typeface that is easy to read, and succinctly describe your business.

Pick Truck Wrap Colors That Stand Out

Bold colors will help your truck stand out from all the plain vehicles on the road. Pick colors that demand attention, evoke the right emotions, and remind people of your brand message.
