The Cranky Way


Many clients come to us unsure of what to expect, unfamiliar with the advertising medium and the process of wrapping their vehicle, and unaware of the potential benefits to their business. Cranky Creative has an extensive employee orientation program that all employees complete before working with clients. A core methodology of that training is education. The process we use includes the following phases,


  1. Understand the client’s business and industry
  2. Understand what demographics they are trying to reach
  3. Understand what they are advertising – a product, service, event, or promotion?
  4. Evaluate how a wrap would fit into their current marketing efforts?
  5. Evaluate the best fit solution for their needs

Although you may be interested in a vehicle wrap, our client representatives may determine that you would benefit more from a window graphic, laptop skin, or an elevator wrap campaign. If so, then they will tell you and guide you in the proper direction.

Some clients come to us not knowing what they want, or even having a logo for their business! That is ok. We can walk you through the process and transform your brand into a stunning vehicle wrap, window graphic, or store display.

With a Cranky vehicle wrap you are going to get noticed, draw attention to your business and differentiate yourself in a crowd of competition. Turn your vehicles into your best salesman!
