What made you visit stand A for a burger at that music festival in Leeds instead of a shorter queue for an identical burger from stand B? The answer almost certainly lies in the quality of that unit’s promo graphics.
Mobile kiosks and catering units are all about first impressions because they are often located in busy environments where multiple traders are competing for attention. Quality promo graphics can persuade even the most impatient person to join the queue for your stand rather than the shorter one right next door.
So how do you make your mobile kiosk or retail unit stand out?
Here are a few top tips to help you get started…
Your promo graphics are there to serve a specific purpose – to command attention and communicate what your stand is all about. There’s no need to be shy about what it is you’re doing. Your promo graphics should incorporate high impact design and colour to make your business stand out.
There’s no use having your logo on only one side of a four-sided catering vehicle. Why? You’re missing out on three more opportunities to promote your business. Equally, plastering every spare inch of your kiosk with bold graphics isn’t great if you don’t make some space for explaining what exactly it is you’re selling.
When it comes to promo graphics for branded mobile catering vans and retail kiosks, it’s crucial that you choose an experienced team of designers and installers to complete the job. Why? Your brand and its reputation are at stake. Sloppy design and installation skills will result in an unprofessional look that will drive customers away from – not to – your kiosk.
Here are some important mobile unit facts to consider:
– 100% of festival goers agree that eye-catching signs and branding helped them decide where to eat.
– Branded mobile catering vans are more visible – meaning they get more attention from further afield.
– The bigger your presence, the more memorable you will be – increasingly the likelihood of repeat custom.
– Promo graphics help to reinforce brand recognition.
– Stylish signage helps to project a professional image and build trust with potential customers.
– Signage helps businesses communicate with customers – eliminating confusion during busy periods.
– Professionally applied mobile kiosk graphics can last for years when properly cared for – offering great ROI when you attend several events each year.
– Bespoke branding design helps people identify businesses at busy events.

Vehicle wrapping in the art of covering a vehicle in printed vinyl or decals to alter its appearance. Wraps can be full (covering the entire vehicle) or partial (covering certain areas, like the roof or bonnet).
Vehicle wrapping is an art form that requires years of training to get right. Wraps can range for very elaborate, intricate designs, to simpler, more understated designs. Examples of vehicle wrapping are all around you, even if you don’t realise it. When they are properly applied, vehicle wraps appear flawless and are virtually indistinguishable from paintwork.
The cost of a vehicle wrap depends on several factors, including quality of materials used, make of vehicle, and of course the size of vehicle to be wrapped. Don’t be fooled into thinking all wraps are created equal – they’re not. If a quote seems too good to be true, it probably is. Here’s a list of a few vehicle wrap disasters to watch out for. Remember: Buy cheap, buy twice.
Technically…you could, but we wouldn’t recommend it. As well as specialist tools and equipment, it takes years of experience and training to master the art of applying vinyl vehicle graphics and wraps. Everything, from the curve of a bumper to the temperature of the air, can affect application. Your best bet is to find a fully trained and certified 3M Authorised Vehicle Wrapper near you.
A new paint job can be expensive – and restrictive. After all, there are only so many paint finishes available. But when you choose a wrap, your options are virtually endless. Matte, satin, metallic, gloss, textured – there’s a colour and finish to suit every style.
Wraps don’t just look great – they also help to protect your original paintwork underneath. An experienced installer will have no problem at all applying and removing your wrap without damaging the paint surface underneath. And when cared for correctly, your wrap could last up to five years. If you choose to have signwriting installed to promote your business, that’s five years of promotion for your business for one set fee. Pretty incredible, right?
You’ve probably noticed dozens of adverts for vehicle graphics and wraps in your local area. However, at 3SixtyWraps we only recommend 3M Authorised Vehicle Wrappers (3MAVW) to our clients. Why? As 3M AVW’s ourselves, we know that 3MAVW firms have been tested and trained to the highest possible standard and are familiar with the latest application techniques.

Do you know what goes into achieving a flawless vehicle wrap? Or what to look out for if you suspect your wrap has been fitted by an inexperienced installer?
In this post, we’ll run through some of the things that set good and bad vehicle wraps apart so that you know what to watch out for.
Cheap vehicle wraps are often rushed jobs. When a wrap installation is rushed, it’s likely that shortcuts are taken and proper techniques are not used. This can lead to lots of problems, the most noticeable being lifting and peeling edges.
If you want to avoid a shoddy result, pick an installer with plenty of experience.
Air bubbles are a major vehicle wrap no-no. They look awful. Not only do they ruin the look of your vehicle, they can tear and leave you with an uneven texture and patches of your original paintwork showing through.
These bubbles don’t always show up immediately, in fact it can take a few weeks sometimes. But when they do, there’s no ignoring them. An experienced installer knows how to expertly apply vinyl to all areas of your vehicle, so you won’t get air bubbles popping up in recessed areas – or anywhere else.
Once your wrap is installed it should look flawless and it should be difficult to tell whether it is actually a wrap or paint. A cut-price vehicle wrap might make your car look as though someone has applied a giant sticker to it – and that’s not a good look!
Overlapping sections and seams of vinyl can stand out a mile away. If the vinyl has been cut into several smaller pieces and applied by an inexperienced installer the results will be patchy to say the least.
It takes a lot of time, experience and training to perfect the art of vehicle wrap installation. Inexperienced wrappers put your vehicle at risk of damage from sloppy technique, such as cutting the vinyl against the vehicle and damaging the original paintwork underneath.
Professionally trained installers know which tools and techniques to use for each job, ensuring a perfect finish every time.
A bad trimming technique and un-tucked edges can completely ruin the look of an otherwise perfectly applied wrap. Messy edges are the hallmark of a cheap, poorly installed wrap.
An experienced installer will take the time to ensure that every inch of the wrap has been carefully trimmed and tucked away for an immaculate finish.
When it comes to vehicle wraps, you really do get what you pay for. We have over a decade of experience installing vehicle wraps and graphics and last year we achieved the status of 3M Authorised Vehicle Wrapper.
So, for a high-quality finish that will turn heads for all the right reasons, choose the award-winning team at 3SixtyWraps.

Want to protect your paintwork from scuffs, scratches and colour fading? Paint Protection Film (PPF) could be your car’s new best friend.
PPF is a thin later of film that’s installed on top of paintwork to provide protection from road debris, chips and scratches.
The technology behind PPF was first developed by the US military to protect the leading rotor edges and vulnerable impact areas of Helicopters. Since then, the technology has developed into the much-loved product we see in use today.
PPF is an incredible product, which explains why car owners and racing teams all over the world love it so much.
PPF doesn’t just help to protect vehicles against debris on the road. Here are some more benefits:
♦ PPF helps cars hold on to their resale value by helping to ensuring the durability and longevity of paintwork.
♦ PPF doesn’t require any extra maintenance or special care. Once applied, you can continue to take care of your car as you usually would. Certain harsh waxes and polishes should be avoided to protect the PPF, but your installation team will be able to recommend the best products to use.
♦ At 3SixtyWraps, we use PremiumShield, the industry standard in PPF. PremiumShield PPF is warranted against UV damage, peeling and cracking. As a UV-stable film, it also helps to protect cars from colour fading.
♦ PPF is virtually invisible once fitted.
♦ PPF doesn’t have to be installed across the entire paint surface. You can choose to focus on the most vulnerable areas, like the bumper and wheel arches. The level of protection is up to you.
♦ PremiumShield PPF comes with a five year warranty as standard.
♦ PPF is a cost-effective way of protecting your vehicle. The cost of protecting your car with a protection film is a fraction of the price you would pay for paint repairs.
No, PPF will not damage your car. It is designed to protect the surface of your car and will not ruin your paintwork.
When you’re ready for your PPF to be removed, a professional installation team should take care of this for you. Do not attempt to remove the film yourself, even if it is damaged.
If an area of your PPF is irreparably damaged the panel can be replaced individually in just a few hours.
The job of applying PPF should be left to the experts. At 3SixtyWraps, our specialist technicians have the skills and experience necessary to achieve a precise, flawless finish.
Do you follow us on social media? If so, you’ll know that last month a few members of the 3SixtyWraps team flew out to Dubai for some extra-special training courtesy of DRD International.
Just in case you missed it, we thought we’d bring you a round-up of our trip. Warning: this post contains graphic images of some seriously special cars.
At 3SixtyWraps we’re no strangers to endurance racing. Over the years, we have helped several racing teams prepare for these incredible events by adding high quality wraps and decals to their cars. However, it has been a longstanding ambition of ours to be able to offer teams a fully comprehensive service for the exterior of their cars.
Now, thanks to DRD International, that dream has become a reality. In January, they kindly invited us over to the first race of the 2017 endurance racing calendar, the Dubai 24 Hour Race, to learn how to properly apply tear-off windscreens. We spent an incredible week learning from the very best in the industry and we’re pretty chuffed to be able to say that we can now offer a tear-off windscreen service to racing teams and individuals across the UK.

“Going to Dubai for the Dubai 24 Hour Race gave us the opportunity to learn the product in a real-world environment, which is priceless,” explains Nick Kenway, Managing Director of 3SixtyWraps.
The beauty of tear-off windscreens is that they can be quickly and easily torn off during a race to reveal a clean, undamaged windscreen underneath. This has made them extremely popular in the motorsport endurance racing market.

“In endurance racing, the car windscreens get really dirty and chipped, especially in Dubai because there is a lot of sand on the tracks as you can image,” says Nick. “After a certain amount of time the damage builds up on the windscreen, which isn’t ideal for driver visibility. A tear-off windscreen is the perfect solution to this problem.”
“Basically, it’s three-layer film that you install directly on top of the windscreen,” says Nick. “When you pull off a layer you reveal a brand new, unchipped screen underneath.
“Before this training, we were not able to offer tear-off windscreens, but now it’s another feather to our bow. Before we would go in and put paint protection on, apply the wrap to the car and then apply all the decals and sponsors. But up until now we’ve had to walk away or recommend a competition for the tear-off windscreens. Now we can be the one-stop shop for the complete outside of the vehicle.”

Although predominately in use in the motorsport endurance and luxury car markets, tear-off windscreens can be installed on any car. For just a few hundred pounds, they can protect cars against costly windscreen damage caused by stone chips and debris on the road.
