Buses, trailers, and trucks are some of the largest vehicles on the road and excellent for transporting a business’s products or groups of people. Their size can be helpful for more than just moving people and items, however. It can also be an advantage when used for advertising.
Large vehicle wraps enable you to get your brand in front of customers in your area while the trailer or bus drives from location to location. There are few better methods of multitasking to build your business, and at Blue Dot Signs, we can make sure you have the best possible trailer wraps that are clear, effective, and designed to last. Call us today for bus wraps and trailer wraps in NJ.
As with other varieties of vehicle wraps, bus and trailer wraps are large vinyl signs molded to the exterior of a vehicle and kept there with the vinyl’s adhesive. From commercial trailer wraps to food trailer wraps and more, vehicle wraps made by Blue Dot Signs are made from 3M vinyl and are able to be customized to your size and design needs.
Graphics for vinyl wraps are designed using the specifications of the trailer or bus. These can be taken from factory blueprints or measurements, but accuracy is important to ensure that the film will fit the vehicle. The graphics are printed directly to the vinyl with latex or UV inks. Both ink types provide clear, bright shades, and a white vinyl background prevents dulled colors. With a wide format printer, the graphics can be printed onto vinyl in one continuous print that is large enough to cover a trailer.
This removes the need to piece together different vinyl panels and instead provides a seamless look. The vinyl film itself is one of a line of 3M products designed specifically to withstand outdoor installations. They are waterproof and UV resistant. To adhere to the substrate of the trailer, the vinyl uses an adhesive backing with a coated lining for printing.
Most of the details involved with large vehicle wraps can be customized for your vehicle, business’s brand, and personal preference. Some common customizations include:
Other customization options can include the finish. 3M vinyl comes standard in matte, glossy, and reflective finishes. It is also possible to apply a laminate after printing. This protects the vinyl and the graphics to reduce the amount of wear they experience.
As 3M certified installers, we use the manufacturer’s guidelines to place wraps and decals onto your vehicle. This process can take a few days to allow for the vehicle to be cleaned, the removal of accessories like headlights, the application of vinyl, and the setting period. Once installed, the vinyl can be left on for approximately 5 years.
Different conditions will cause wear faster, such as extreme weather, traveling in highly dirty or polluted places, and prolonged sun exposure. After 5 years, the vinyl should be removed and replaced regardless of its appearance to prevent over adhesion that can make it difficult to uninstall.
Vinyl wraps are often chosen for the design and advertising possibilities they present, especially with the large format of a trailer or bus. Wraps also offer several additional advantages:
Large vehicle wraps work on trailers, shipping containers, buses, and other vehicles with extensive space that companies would like to capitalize for advertising. Those vehicles that are frequently in view of potential customers during their routes can increase impressions with a vinyl wrap. Businesses with larger trucks include:
We can install vinyl graphics on every vehicle in your fleet, or on just a single bus or trailer depending on your business’s needs.

Yes. Laminated wraps can be given a gloss or matte finish. If you don’t want either finish through, the lamination doesn’t have to affect the design’s appearance. It’s primarily a protective feature.
Yes. There’s no standard minimum or maximum number for vehicle wrap orders. We can create just one, or many more for a large fleet of buses.
Yes. We can remove yours for you if you’re inexperienced with vinyl vehicle wraps. Many buses sell advertising space and remove the wrap when the contract is completed.
Yes. The vinyl our vehicle wraps are made of is opaque, so the color of the vehicle the wrap is installed on doesn’t affect the colors in the wrap’s design.
Handwashing is the best away to avoid damage to the wrap, but if that’s not possible because of the vehicle’s size, just avoid cleaning methods like pressure washing, brushes with abrasive bristles, and very hot water.
We provide installation services, especially for signage of this size. Improper installation of your wrap by non-professionals could mean uneven adhesion, accelerated wear and tear, and a warped appearance.
Semi-permanent vinyl wraps typically last at least seven years.
Installation usually takes one or two days to complete, depending how large your vehicle and your wrap are. It is not recommended that you install it yourself, so you will need to find a time that you can leave the wrap with us overnight for us to complete the installation process.
No. We’re able to make custom vehicle wraps for any size or model of vehicle.
No. The adhesive used for our vehicle wraps and our method of removing them guarantees that the paint and finish under the wrap won’t be damaged during the removal process.
