One of the ways to brand a car is to use plotter cut vinyls. It is not as open-ended as the proper print, because you cannot use any photographs on it and use colour-complicated designs, but it is cheaper and has a few other advantages.
Polymer and cast ORACAL vinyls that we use in our work show great weather resilience, therefore they keep their original colours for longer. There are over one hundred colours that can be used, and life span of 5 to 12 years. And of course they can be mixed with printed elements. Sky is the limit here.
