For this particular project, our focus was on installing commercial decals on Vivid Electric’s Mercedes Metris.

Preparing for the Installation

Proper planning and preparation are key factors in ensuring a successful installation. We understand the importance of taking the time to outline project requirements and specifications before diving into the actual installation process. With Vivid Electric’s Mercedes Metris project, we followed a meticulous approach to ensure every detail was considered.

  1. Outlining project requirements and specifications: We began by thoroughly understanding Vivid Electric’s vision and goals for the commercial decals on their Mercedes Metris. By having a clear understanding of their brand identity and target audience, we were able to tailor the design and placement of the decals accordingly. We discussed important factors such as the number of decals, their positioning on the vehicle, and the specific information to be included.
  2. Collaborating with the client to finalize design elements: Collaboration with the client is vital to create a design that truly represents their brand. We worked closely with Vivid Electric to finalize the design elements, ensuring that their logo, services, Instagram username, and contact information were prominently displayed on the decals. Through open communication and feedback, we were able to refine the design to meet their expectations and align it with their branding strategy.

Another crucial aspect of our preparation was the selection of high-quality materials. We believe in providing our clients with the best possible solutions, which is why we chose Avery Dennison vinyl for this project.

Using high-quality materials like Avery Dennison vinyl offers several advantages. Firstly, it ensures the longevity and durability of the decals, allowing them to withstand various weather conditions, UV exposure, and normal wear and tear. This is especially important for a vehicle like the Mercedes Metris, which is frequently on the move.

Moreover, Avery Dennison vinyl provides a superior finish and appearance. The Gold and Matte Black vinyl offered by Avery Dennison added a touch of elegance and professionalism to Vivid Electric’s decals. The colours are vibrant, and the vinyl has a smooth, high-quality finish that enhances the overall aesthetic of the vehicle.

By combining proper planning, effective collaboration, and the use of top-notch materials like Avery Dennison vinyl, we ensured that every aspect of the preparation process was meticulously executed. These efforts laid the foundation for a seamless installation and a stunning final outcome.

The installation Process

Now, let’s delve into the step-by-step breakdown of the installation process we followed for Vivid Electric’s Mercedes Metris decals:

  1. Cleaning and preparing the vehicle’s surface: Before applying the decals, we ensured that the vehicle’s surface was thoroughly cleaned and free from any dirt, dust, or debris. This step is crucial to create an optimal bonding surface for the decals, ensuring their longevity. We used high-quality cleaning agents and techniques to achieve a pristine surface.
  2. Measuring and aligning the decals: Precision is key when it comes to installing decals. We carefully measured and planned the placement of each decal, ensuring they were aligned symmetrically and positioned to maximize visibility and impact. We utilized measuring tools and guidelines to achieve consistent spacing and positioning across the vehicle’s surface.
  3. Applying the decals using professional techniques: With the surface cleaned and the measurements in place, we proceeded to apply the decals. We utilized our expertise and experience in vinyl installation to ensure a seamless and professional finish. Using the appropriate tools and techniques, we carefully positioned and adhered to each decal, paying close attention to eliminate air bubbles and ensure a smooth application.

Challenges are not uncommon during the installation process, but our skilled team is well-prepared to overcome them with professionalism and expertise.

  1. Techniques used to ensure smooth application: To achieve a smooth application, we employed various techniques such as using a squeegee to eliminate air bubbles and ensure proper adhesion. We also used heat to aid in the conformability of the vinyl, allowing it to adhere smoothly to the curved surfaces of the Mercedes Metris. These techniques helped us achieve a flawless finish.
  2. Addressing difficulties encountered and their resolutions: While installing decals, we occasionally encounter challenges unique to each project. For instance, specific contours or intricate parts of the vehicle might require additional attention and expertise. In such cases, our experienced installers carefully assess the situation, adapt their techniques, and make necessary adjustments to ensure the decals adhere seamlessly and maintain their visual integrity.

Throughout the installation process, our team remained focused on delivering exceptional results. By combining our expertise, attention to detail, and problem-solving skills, we overcame any challenges encountered during the installation, resulting in a stunning final outcome for Vivid Electric’s Mercedes Metris.

Stay with us as we move forward to showcase the captivating decals that beautifully represent Vivid Electric’s brand identity on their vehicle.
