Boat Wraps and Marine Graphics
Ever thought of advertising your business on the open water? With boat wraps, there’s a wealth of opportunity awaiting you.
Once available to only professionals, boat wraps are now the ideal choice for anyone looking to take their advertising efforts to the water. Whether you’re looking to promote your own business, or simply increase awareness for a brand or cause, these UV resistant vinyl wraps don’t just protect the surface of your watercraft – they increase the visibility of your vessel with jaw-dropping designs. All you need to do is look at your hull as a blank canvas, and let your imagination run wild.
Ads on Wheels® will cover the rest.
HOW DOES ADS ON WHEELS® CREATE A BOAT WRAP?
Using a variety of design software, including Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, designing a boat wrap requires an extensive focus on the details, such as the aspect of three-dimensional design, and the visibility of the graphics once the vessel has been placed in the water. To ensure that all of these nuances are accounted for, we have a full staff of in-house designers that can create the most inspiring design that effectively conveys your message. We believe that the goal of any great design should be to promote your brand, company, product, or service within three seconds of it being viewed.
When it comes time to print, our boat wraps are often printed using UV resistant inks onto an adhesive vinyl material that’s protected with a high gloss, hard laminate. To ensure the highest quality resolution and image clarity available, we only utilize the most advanced latex printing technologies as well. Typically, boat wraps are printed in panels, which will appear seamless when installed onto the boat itself given that the installation is performed by a certified installation specialist.
Fortunately, Ads on Wheels® has certified and tested installers nationwide, and throughout Canada as well.
HOW SHOULD A BOAT WRAP BE INSTALLED?
Installing a boat wrap is done by applying the self-adhesive vinyl panels or rolls on the outside of the hull. Following the initial application, we remove the temporary backing and then use a squeegee to push the material onto the surface of your vessel. By applying this pressure to the adhesive, the backing of the material is activated, allowing for complete adhesion of the material to the surface. When done properly, the material should have no wrinkles or bubbles, and should stay fixed to the surface for the materials warrantied life cycle.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Paint vs. Vinyl
Boat wraps are an excellent choice when it comes to the design and range of graphics available for your vessel. When compared to the alternative of painting, the benefits of wrapping your boat become even more apparent!
Unlike the design and installation process of boat wraps, the typical process of airbrushing takes an extended period of time and much higher cost for the boat owner. Additionally, airbrushing graphics onto a boat also does not allow for the owner to quickly resell the boat. All vinyl wraps we produce, including boat wraps are easily removed with no damage to the surface. When it comes to the design of boat graphics there is virtually no limitation of what can be printed on a wrap versus the restraints of a painted boat graphic.
Advertising a business, product, or service on a boat creates a unique exposure to a potential market that’s typically unavailable to most companies. Simply put, the memorability of a boat advertisement is long lasting and cost effective in any setting. From it’s time being transported on a trailer, to it’s time in the water, a boat wrap is always advertising your business. Ideal venues and times for boat advertisements are organized fishing events, holiday weekends at the beach, and of course boat shows.
