As you drove around Los Angeles for work today, what vehicle caught your eye? Was it the shiny car fresh out of the carwash, or was it the expensive sports car? Perhaps the answer was neither – it was the work van that had a custom van wrap. If you have considered ordering a car […]

AP Corp Donates Vehicle Wrap to MAGIC’s Autonomous Corridor Project in Westminster, MD

Syndicated by The Wrap Shop Co, Memphis, Tennessee

Downtown Westminster, MD was bustling Friday afternoon during the kick-off of phase 1 of MAGIC’s Autonomous Corridor Project. MAGIC, which stands for Mid-Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory, is working to improve transportation in downtown Westminster, MD with this forward-thinking project.

To help ensure the project’s success, many area businesses are donating their expertise, time, and efforts—AP Corp included!

The Autonomous Corridor Project

According to Kelly Schulz, secretary of Maryland Department of Commerce, the Autonomous Corridor Project will, “increase equity and expand opportunity for the people of Westminster and beyond.” Kelly went on to elaborate, “This has the potential to create a more connected community, a more walkable community, and to spur economic growth.” With all the strategically planned stops on this corridor, this project absolutely has this potential and then some!

Friday’s Ribbon Cutting Event

As shown in the video above, the ribbon cutting event was attended by a long list of Carroll County’s biggest names in technology. We saw drones, a library robot that helps folks find their books, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and their remote-controlled robots, and the Olli autonomous vehicle built by Local Motors. It was a great showing for the City of Westminster!

The Autonomous Vehicle

An autonomous vehicle is a self-driving vehicle. Currently, the ones which could be used in this project are like a small bus. The main benefit of this size of vehicle is it will offer extreme versatility and agility within the Westminster, MD urban city center, neighborhoods, and campuses. Phase 2 of the project is when we will most likely learn more about the exact vehicle selected for use.

Autonomous Corridor Project Phase 1

Phase 1 of MAGIC’s Autonomous Corridor Project is what could be informally dubbed as the ‘mapping phase’. During this phase, MAGIC will work with Dynamic Dimensions Technologies (DDT), to scan the route most suitable for the Autonomous Corridor. The vehicle being used in phase 1 will be manually driven (by humans) to capture the route the autonomous vehicle will take.

As part of AP Corp’s partnership with MAGIC, AP Corp will also help wrap the autonomous vehicles with a custom, e-fleet wrap to brand the new fleet.

MAGIC Partners with AP Corp for their Fleet Branding and Fleet Wrap Installation

When asked if we could help with the Autonomous Corridor Project, AP Corp jumped at the opportunity. Tara Davis, AP Corp Creative Director stated, “The team at AP Corp absolutely loved being involved in such a forward-thinking event right in our backyard. Seeing the community’s support for the Autonomous Corridor Project and talking to the other sponsors was so exciting!”

The subtlety of vehicle wrap advertising

Syndicated by The Wrap Shop Co, Memphis, Tennessee

Syndicated by One Source Media, Long Island City, New York

This was an interesting point that cropped up in a recent conversation. Much of the advertising we are exposed to could certainly not be termed as subtle! If you think of many ads that reach you through radio and TV, you’ll find them shouting (even screaming) their message. Online advertising can literally pop-up and annoy […]

Which Fleet Cargo Van is Best?

Syndicated by The Wrap Shop Co, Memphis, Tennessee

Syndicated by One Source Media, Long Island City, New York

Do you have an opinion on the best fleet cargo van of 2020? Being a fleet graphics company, our opinion rests solely on which vehicle is easier to wrap. What we were curious about was… which vehicle was the best in the eyes of a fleet management professional and why?

Interested to see what those professionals said? Here is the fleet cargo van that was voted as the best 2020 fleet cargo van according to fleet management professionals.

The Results of Our Poll

We asked the fleet management industry, via LinkedIn, “Which of these 2020 fleet cargo vans do you think is the best?”. The options respondents could choose from are listed below.

Do you agree with the results? 

  • Ford Transit – 59%
  • Mercedes Sprinter – 22%
  • RAM Promaster – 7%
  • Nissan NV – 11%

Additional Comments from Industry Professionals

In addition to collecting poll results, respondents were also able to supply comments. Effectively adding some addition insight to why they voted the way they did.

One fleet sales manager, Kai K., voted for the RAM Promaster because, “Amazon and the U. S. Postal service use the RAM Promaster because they are the lowest cost per mile.”

Another respondent, Richard S., the VP of Operations at a fleet leasing company, said “the lowest TCO and the most reliable, based on my documented repair history, is the Nissan NV.”

It is interesting that the poll data doesn’t match up with these respondent’s comments. In essence, this probably boils down to the fact that what is “best” actually boils down to your individual fleet’s needs.

The Consensus on The Top Fleet Cargo Van

At the end of the day, there doesn’t seem to be a complete consensus. That said, according to our poll, over 50% of respondents went with the Ford Transit Van. So, when looking for which fleet cargo van is best, start your search with the Ford Transit Van. That said, don’t simply dive into buying a fleet of Ford Transit Vans based off this article. Do your homework and investigate which vehicles are best for your business needs.

Vehicle Graphics Installation: Plainfield Police Department

In this video, Bill Moss, TKO Graphix installation manager, discusses removing and replacing vehicle decals as we watch a TKO installation crew updating the graphics on a Plainfield, Indiana Police Department. The process begins by heating the old vinyl graphics with a torch then pulling them carefully off the vehicle. Any residual vinyl is removed using a soft cloth and a citrus based cleaner. The new graphics are measured, marked, positioned, and squeegeed in place.

How to prolong the life of your car wrap

Syndicated by The Wrap Shop Co, Memphis, Tennessee

Syndicated by One Source Media, Long Island City, New York

Most car warps, especially vinyl wraps, are durable, but they aren’t indestructible. They need regular care and maintenance to extend their life span and maintain their vibrant colors. Unfortunately, many car owners forget their vehicle wraps once they’re installed. This adversely affects their brand reputation as customers normally relate poorly maintained car wraps with poor […]

Will there be ripples, bubbles, or imperfections in a vehicle wrap?

Syndicated by The Wrap Shop Co, Memphis, Tennessee

Syndicated by One Source Media, Long Island City, New York

Are you wondering how your wrap will look after leaving a wrap shop? If you’re concerned about ripples, bubbles, or imperfections in your vehicle wrap—it is possible. There are many factors which influence how often these types of imperfections occur.

Will there be ripples bubbles or imperfections in a vehicle wrap

What affects the quality of a vehicle wrap?

There are many factors which affect the quality of a finished vehicle wrap. These factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Skill of the wrap installer
  • Type of wrap materials used
  • Quality of the vehicle’s exterior
  • Temperature of the environment during install
  • The wrap installer’s thresholds for imperfections
  • Any environmental contaminant present during install

Will There be Imperfections in an AP Graphics Vehicle Wrap?

Ripples and bubbles can happen—but they are VERY rare. We mitigate all the above risks with a temperature-controlled environment, skilled installers, and by using 3M vinyl wrap. Imperfections are minimal and typically only occur in areas such as door jambs, natural vehicle breaks, and inlays.

Our general threshold is that no ripples, bubbles, or imperfections occur. If any of these imperfections do make it off our lot, it’s only because you needed to be right up close to see them.

Will a Vehicle Wrap Have Ripples?

Usually, ripples are very uncommon. A ‘ripple’ in the wrap world is a visible line, almost like a wave. A ripple is one of the more uncommon types of wrap imperfections because if they do happen the whole vinyl panel is usually replaced. Also, the simple nature of a vehicle wrap installation allows for the easy ability to lift the wrap up and fix any ripples before the wrap adhesive sets.

Will a Vehicle Wrap Have Bubbles?

A more common imperfection will be bubbling. Bubbling happens when a vehicle’s paint is in poor condition or there are contaminants on the surface of the vehicle during installation. To avoid bubbles, vehicles should be washed and not have paint in poor condition. This said, bubbles are also very rare and only the smallest bubbles ever leave a shop unnoticed.

Will a Vehicle Wrap Have Imperfections?

Imperfections, in general, can happen. After all, the product is installed by humans and human error is possible. The important thing is any imperfections are spotted and those outside of a reasonable threshold of acceptability are fixed. Most wrap shops have a written document outlining what you can expect when working with them; if you did not get one, be sure to ask for it!
