Spot Graphics There was a vent on the passen- ger side of the box truck that I almost missed during the design stage because it's painted the same color as the truck. I originally had the artwork designed where the slogan ran right across this vent and these smaller letters would have been cut out. The slogan is large and the panel is flat so it's not necessary to cut it separate, and use more vinyl, but by remembering the vent I was able to move the slogan up about 6" ahead of time. This will avoid the cut out lettering and will also speed the installation of the graphics. When it comes to tighter spaces though it's usually best to just cut those graphics separately. On the doors of the box truck there is a large colored swish that continues off the box. There is also a logo and contact information. These smaller graphics have to fit around the mirror, existing truck ID labels and the bottom swish. By cutting these separate, we have better control over where the graphics land. SDG Pre-setting up print panels on some of our wraps maximizes material use and makes the installation more efficient. We proof most of our wraps on photos of the actual vehicle to account for obstacles.
