How much is Vehicle Signage in the UK

A red car is parked in a room with a sign on it.

The cost of getting vehicle signage done in the UK or anywhere in the world depends on a few factors. Like the design you need, how complex they are, colours, materials, and vehicle.

While the price will surely increase depending on the material you want and the design. What adds greatly to it is the type of signage and the vehicle. Since these are delicate jobs the type of signage dictates the cost. Full, partial or spot will also decide the number of hours put into each vehicle.

Also, it depends on where you want that signage to be. If you have a van and you want partial signage on the side. It would be cheaper as compared to the front. That is because vans on the side have a larger flatter surface area. As opposed to the front and rear where there are more curves and bends.

That being said, the average standard cost of small vehicle signage in the UK is between £400 to £800 per vehicle. This depends on the size and type of vehicle. Custom signage with a full wrap with complex designs can go upwards to £3500 for vans and trucks.

Bear in mind that installation costs for vehicle signage require the following:

  • Design time
  • Materials
  • Printing time
  • Prep and Installation
  • Size of the Vehicle
  • Labour
  • The durability of the product (cast/calendered vinyl)

How long does vehicle signage last?

Leasing a fleet of vans and deciding on the choice of materials, durability, and the expectations of its lifespan. All have a factor to play in how long it will last. As well as how the product is cleaned and maintained.

Vehicle signage can be a quick and easy short or long-term solution for a brand’s marketing objectives. One that can help deliver a brand’s message. Many companies might change their fleet of vehicles yearly depending on the vehicle’s mileage. Therefore the choice of materials and how it is used is vital.

Some brands might need to have the ability to switch the vehicle signage after a few months. It all depends on their marketing campaigns and goals. Others might want something that will last and many vehicle signage wraps can last 5 years. Many brands typically update their designs every 3-5 years. For brands just having signwriting they can expect to get 5 years out of the graphics.

The length of time your vehicle branding lasts will depend on the type of product you choose. As well as how much wear and tear it gets while on the road. If you are leasing then it is likely that the product will last for the duration of the contract.
