The Ontime Plumbing and Heating Van Livery was brought to us through a local graphic design company. We’d worked with them several times before and their attention to detail was always meticulous. So, the production and Fitting these van graphics, meant we had to follow design work exactly.
Choosing the Vehicle Wraping Colours.
Although it doesn’t jump out as obvious, the OT logo on the rear of the sides of the Transit Custom was a specialist wrapping vinyl. This was important to us as a sign company that the right material was being used. And for the designer, the range of colours was key in pulling together the van graphics design. When it comes to wrapping vinyl we prefer to use Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping™ Film.
The OT logo is Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping™ Film Quicksilver, which is a slightly blue silver metallic colour. It looks great in person. The coloured logos on the side of the transit were digitally printed vinyl with a gloss laminate. We always recommend that any long term exterior prints are laminated. It’s even more important on vehicles as washing, abrasion and even the suns UV can damage the unprotected print.
You’ll possibly see that the shade of the Quicksilver wrap changes are you move around the van. Partly due to the what is being reflected off it, but also the angle of looking at the metallic vinyl.
Well Designed Van Livery
Ontime Plumbing and heatings van livery is a great example of how clearly designed van graphics work. The important parts of the design being the company name, is where your eyes are drawn to first. The customer’s contact details are on the van and a little bit about what they do. It is important to not swamp a van with too much text as the audience doesn’t have a lot of time to read it. The majority of eyes that see it will see it moving.
The Design work for these van graphics was done by Little Red Rooster Creative
