Signwriting your minibus

If you’ve decided to lease a minibus for your school or business you may be considering adding your branding. We’ve shared our advice below but if you’ve any more questions do speak to your knowledgeable team as we can offer a complete design service with a high quality signwriting company.

Should I brand my minibus?

We strongly believe that your new minibus is a great way to advertise and promote your school or business.    It can be an effective (and usually inexpensive) method of making your minibus and, school or business, stand out to create the right image in your local community.

Of course, we understand that some businesses may not want to draw too much attention to their vehicle, for many reasons, but with stats showing that as many as 3,000 people an hour may see your vehicle – are you missing a trick?

How it’s done

Sign writing is pretty sophisticated these days and options are fairly wide reaching. One option is to use stencilled adhesive vinyl lettering on the bonnet, rear doors or side of the vehicle.  Another option is a full or part vinyl vehicle wrap.

What should my signage say?

Professionals who design vehicle signage recommend keeping things simple and stick to easily identifiable images, names or logos and strong complementary colours that resonate with your brand.

Contact details should also be kept to a minimum with a website address and contact number usually sufficient. 

The back of the vehicle is often thought of as the best place for information as it gives those travelling behind you the best chance of capturing the details. 

Can I sign-write my lease minibus?

Absolutely! Our team will advise you of any terms and conditions attached to your minibus being sign written, some companies for example prefer you to remove any signage before handing the vehicle back at the end of the lease term whilst others will remove for you.
