Knowing how much branding to apply to a promotional bus is a common question, the simplest answer is apply as much vinyl to the vehicle as the budget can stand.

If the above doesn’t rock your boat then take note of various studies that have been undertaken: A study by the ATA found that 9 in 10 drivers notice vehicle advertising and that nearly 30% of these individuals would make a buying decision based on this factor
A study by the advertising agency RYP & Becker Group found that 97% of those surveyed recalled vehicle advertising, 98% stated that the advertising created a positive image of the advertiser and 96% stated that vehicle branding had a greater impact than billboard advertising.
With a full colour, graphical wrap being the ultimate in vehicle branding and potentially the most effective, clients with limited budgets can often generate the same or similar effect by utilising the painted background colour of the vehicle and applying well placed images, text and logo’s over the bodywork.
All our vehicle branding costs are based upon you’re design artwork, the amount of printed and unprinted vinyl used and the time it takes to apply, it also includes the hire cost for the vehicle whilst the bus is being branded and stripped of vinyl at the end of the promotional tour
Simply put promotional bus branding has proven to deliver a return of investment by increasing brand and/or tour awareness at a fraction of the cost of other, more conventional advertising, with not only the brand and/or tour being displayed but your phone number, website, social networking sites and email being seen by thousands daily
