THE BEDFIN BUILD KIT & LICENSE
WHAT IS IT?
The Bedfin Build Kit & License is a combination of physical parts, build plans, and CAD files which anyone can use to build a Bedfin signage system. The kit includes a single license to build one unit for use by an individual or business, though restricts the production of multiple units for distribution. (See terms of purchase for full details)
DO I HAVE TO BUILD IT MYSELF?
Absolutely not. Most people won't. The FREE Getting Started Kit comes with all the tools necessary to find a local, qualified metal fabricator and obtain quotes for the production Bedfin system. This ensures you can get the best price, leadtime, and quality from your local businesses.
WHY IS HARDWARE IS INCLUDED?
The hardware in the kit includes easy to source items like nuts and bolts, but also the more difficult items like machined blocks and the clamps used to hold Bedfin onto your rig. If you were to purchase these items in the qty needed for one Bedfin system, the total cost of the hardware would be far greater. Additionally, by supplying the hardware, the build process is easier for you.
WHAT'S IN THE BUILD KIT?
- - license to build an authentic Bedfin product
- - estimation and quoting tools
- - complete production files and support for a fabricator to build from
- - stainless hardware, clamps, machined components, and more
ARE OTHER MATERIALS REQUIRED?
There are materials which are not included in the kit. These materials are commonly available and are large in size which makes them prohibitive to include in your kit. Also, based on the size of Bedfin you intend to build, you will need more or less of these raw materials. Please see the material list below. Detailed specifications and quantities are stated in the FREE Getting Started Kit.
- - Aluminum Sheet or flat bar, 1/8" x 3/4

HOW MUCH DOES A TRUCK WRAP COST?
PROBABLY MORE THAN YOU THINK
There are a number of variables affecting the cost of a wrap, so it's hard to make a definitive statement (by the way, you'll hear that with every installer you ask). There's no one-size-fits-all type of answer. You can count on spending anywhere between $1,500 and $5,000 depending on factors such as whether it's a partial wrap or a full wrap, whether your truck has complex contours or simple, and depending on the materials used.
The most important factor in cost is the quality of the installer and the materials. If you're opting for a low cost installer, you may want to rethink that decision. From bubbling and cracking vinyl to damage to your vehicle, many things can go wrong. Everything from the preparation of your truck to the techniques of the installer will lead to the success or failure of your wrap. Done poorly, a bad wrap may cost you more money than it makes you in the long run - maybe in the short run, too. The environment you drive in may also limit your recourse to having your wrap fixed under warranty.
All that said, one of the biggest costs of a wrap is not the out-the-door cost of installation and the materials, but the sacrifice of flexibility. Since a wrap will generally last 3-7 years in the right conditions, you won't likely change it out for a new design anytime soon.
This may be fine if you only want to display information which isn't going to change. That means your logo, a generic description of your business, and your color scheme. You wouldn't use a wrap to advertise things like seasonal services, limited time offers, or to promote whatever you have an abundance of at the time. That is unless you want to spend the money to redo your wrap in part of in full. Doing so doens't only cost the money for installation, but also downtime for your work truck.
After all this, you may be thinking wraps are a bad investment, but that's not true. Like any tool, wraps have a purpose and come with limitations. If you're considering a wrap, investigate Bedfin mobile billboards at the same time. With a price at the lower end of the wrap-cost-spectrum, Bedfin offers far more flexibility without risk of damage to your vehicle and no downtime. Read on to learn more about Bedfin's features and benefits which will support the growth you want for your business.
BEDFIN IS COMMITTED TO THE BEST
IN QUALITY AND SERVICE
In the beginning, Bedfin was designed by and for the founder. From the robust design to the selection of materials, a constant focus on quality has been maintained. Knowing rust would not be tolerated at any point in the product's life, only aluminum and stainless metals were used. Even today, with the demand to keep the product affordable, Bedfin resists the notion to switch to cheaper materials.Price your Bedfin
