Happy Independence Day! Today we're celebrating our freedom of speech and talking about the most American of our signage services: camouflage vehicle wraps. These are super popular vinyl wrap options (particularly around hunting season), and people will put camo vinyl on everything from boats to golf carts.
Depending on the type of pattern you would like, we recommend choosing a pattern from either Mossy Oak or Realtree. Both brands are very well known and the top vendors of camo clothes, merchandise, and vehicle wrap vinyl. They produce quality vinyl in a wide variety of camo patterns that represent the different seasons and terrains you might be hunting in.

Mossy Oak creates very realistic looking camo patterns (well, other than the pink and blaze options, obviously!) by taking extra measures to match the images on the pattern with the nature around you. The Break-Up Infinity pattern, for instance, was made by layering actual high-quality images of leaves, branches, acorns, and other plant life on top of each other to create a dimensional quality with a lot of depth. They introduced the first version of the Treestand pattern 20 years ago, and were the first camo company to use tree branches in a camo design. Mossy Oak also did extensive research on hunting techniques and found that a pattern made of just grass was the best option for hunting waterfowl. That's why the Shadow Grass Blades pattern is a meticulously put together pattern of naturally laying grass on top of thatch or dead grass you would actually find in the marshy areas hunters go to hunt fowl.
Their attention to detail and high quality prints make them an excellent option for patterns that can can be printed and applied to your your car or truck. We used their Break-Up Infinity pattern on a Camaro a while ago that turned out really well!

Realtree has eight different patterns you can choose from, as well as custom wheel rim accents, window graphics, and other decals. They use quality 3M Cast vinyl with a lifetime warranty for their camo prints, so you don't need to worry if your wrap gets damaged or starts to peel up.
Most of the patterns for either Mossy Oak or Realtree come in both matte and gloss options that you can choose depending on your preference. In the last few years, matte vehicle wraps have boomed in popularity—particularly matte black wraps—but gloss is classic and looks great as well.
Using window perf material, you can put camo or other hunting-themed graphics on your windows without obstructing the driver's view. Window perf is a type of wrap vinyl with hundreds of tiny holes that make the graphic transparent when looking out from inside the vehicle but make the image look totally seamless from the outside.
We created this camouflage pattern in-house for the Robertson County Sheriff's D.A.R.E officer.
We can also create custom camouflage patterns based on the type of image you would like to end up with—more leaves, grass, or branches, snow, etc. Our digitally created patterns can then be printed on wrap vinyl appropriate to the kind of vehicle and application you would like. For example, some vinyl is meant to only be temporary while others can last on a vehicle for years if they are taken care of.
