Hull based Vinyl FX specialises in vehicle wraps and graphics from cut vinyl graphics to full printed wraps, for one-off vans through to large fleets.
The family run business prides itself on its high level of customer service and ability to respond to customer needs, and building relationships with the right business partners is key to its success, such as the strong working relationship that Vinyl FX has developed with William Smith.
Vinyl FX director, Simon Havercroft says: “We have a great relationship with William Smith and they are our primary CAD and print vinyl supplier. We have dealt with them since we set up in January this year, but, before that, I had used William Smith as a supplier in my position with a previous company for around four years.”
“As we grow, William Smith helps us with advice and direction on material usage and fitting techniques,” explains Simon. “Our move to using the Arlon SLX Cast Wrap product is a great example. William Smith introduced us to this new product, we sampled it on a small job and, with their help and guidance, have completely moved over to Arlon SLX for all our printed wrap requirements.”
Vinyl FX has already completed a number of projects using Arlon SLX and is currently undertaking several more.
The key reasons for their choice of this material are price and fitting time.
“Arlon SLX is slightly cheaper than our previous material, but the real cost saving comes in fitting time, which has proved to be its main benefit,” Simon comments. “This was made apparent on the first job we used it for. I estimate we saved three hours’ fitting on just one van.”
“The product is fantastic! It prints beautifully, laminates easily and fitting is so much easier and quicker than other products we have used,” he continues. “We will certainly be using the SLX product for the foreseeable future. If I were to sum up the product in a few words it would be – saves time, money and looks fantastic, so why wouldn’t we use it?”
“With regard to William Smith, the service is always impeccable and cannot be faulted. Keep up the great work guys!” concludes Simon.
