History of vehicle wrap

History of vehicle wrap

Promoting on vehicles started in the early 20th century with Milton Hershey painting his logo on other vehicles to promote his brand and later on other people picked it up and started painting on vehicles to promote their brand.

Later on, in the 1920s vinyl was invented but it was still very expensive and not everyone could afford it. Only big companies could afford using vinyl decals to promote their brand until the 1980’s when the production of vinyl became much cheaper and even small companies were then able to use it to promote for their business that this became a better option for commercial use.

It all started in Germany when a car owner wanted to change his car to a taxi and by German law, all taxis must be beige in color, so instead of painting his car he asked for it to be wrapped to prevent it from damaging because of the paint. It is said that Pepsi is the first company to commercially use vinyl wraps on the Pepsi bus in 1993.
