Your healthcare fleet graphics program brings with it unique challenges. A trusted and experienced print partner can help you manage the project from design to installation. From small community hospitals to large multi-state national healthcare companies, we have the experience necessary to fuel your brand. In this article, we’ll cover the unique challenges for healthcare fleet graphics and vehicle wraps, compliance and regulations for your vehicles, along with tips for a smooth project from design to installation.
What types of vehicles might be involved in your healthcare system’s rebranding or graphic wrap program?
When thinking about the type of wrap or graphic, consider the visibility of each type of vehicle. Will the public see these vans, buses and shuttles on the road, or not? The less visible vehicles, like facility trucks, should get more minimal branding. Vehicles that carry patients or get more road time around the community should be prioritized for more involved graphics; this includes partial wraps and full wraps for the purpose of catching “more eyeballs.” In this way, we help you get the best impact while keeping costs down.
What do you need to gather for your print partner before you start a new project, like a rebrand? Your printer should be able to guide you through the steps and give you a checklist of assets you need to collect. They’ll ask for photography, graphics, logo files, vehicle specs, inventory details, and more.
Each state has different requirements for the graphics on emergency vehicles. Some require specific reflective markings on sides and/or rears of vehicles. In general, most wraps for emergency vehicles will involve reflective graphics. Our Transportation division has created a variety of reflective graphics for rear reflective chevron stripes — yellow, red, or the color of the client’s brand. We work with clients and their legal teams to determine the kinds of graphics that will meet state requirements and keep healthcare companies in compliance.
