The Matthews Specialty Vehicles Product Line

Vehicle Paint and Graphics

Matthews Specialty Vehicles is the only specialty vehicle manufacturer with an in-house graphics division.  Matthews Mobile Media is nationally recognized and offers one of the top design, production and installation graphics departments.  They offer everything from door lettering to full vinyl wraps for vehicles of any size.  Their talented staff and equipment can produce machine-cut vinyl builds as well as 3M photo vinyl for lettering, solid surfaces and windows.  With the help of our graphics division your vehicle can serve as a traveling billboard attracting a great deal of attention to your program or cause.


History
Although the Matthews Graphics department has been around for almost twenty years, our name is actually brand new.  For our first sixteen years of existence we used the Matthews Specialty Graphics name to identify ourselves.  However, in 2009 we decided to re-brand our graphics division to further differentiate it from Matthews Specialty Vehicles.  In the early nineties when the specialty vehicle division was starting to take off, graphics was just another department with a dedicated corner in the shop.  With the vinyl graphics industry evolving rapidly in the late nineties we saw the potential for growth and began producing all of our own printed material.  Armed with our own production department we were able to really grow outside of the bus world.  Our sales team was able to bring in a number of both local and national accounts to help establish our new division, Matthews Specialty Graphics.  Over the next few years we were able to upgrade our production capabilities and take on larger accounts.  The new name gave us a new identity and a fresh look to start marketing ourselves a full service vinyl graphics production house.

Mission
From day one our mission has been simple. Create a quality product and back it up with the best customer service. The day one we speak of is not when we started making vinyl graphics, but when the Matthews Group was started in 1967 by Robert E. Matthews. His motto has always been “Any job big or small, do it right or not at all” and these are words that still resonate with our employees today with every job we take on.

Our Team
Our team is assembled of talented and experienced individuals who share one goal, creating quality graphics under the Matthews Mobile Media name. We take great pride in every job we do and are constantly looking to improve our production and installation methods. Our entire team thrives on following projects from conception to completion and ensuring that they exceed the vision of our customers.

Vehicle Wraps
Our team has seen it all. From sub-compact and SUV to tour bus and tractor trailer, we’ve wrapped it all. Our talented design and production teams can take any make or model and make it unique. Whether you’re looking to promote your business on the road or just stand out from the crowd, we have the experience and creativity to get you there.

Environmental Graphics
Apart from offering vehicle graphics and wraps, we are also capable of covering your office or business both inside and out. Our team can spice up your retail space by wrapping kiosks and product displays. We offer a variety of options for window graphics depending on what level of visibility you are looking for. We can wrap interior walls with murals or information and with recent advancements in vinyl technology; we can also wrap exterior surfaces such as brick and concrete.

Decals & Magnets
Outside of the wrap realm we offer a number of alternatives to identify your brand. Vinyl lettering, custom decals, and magnets are just a few of the options we provide. Magnets and decals are a great way to promote your business at events and tradeshows and we have the production power to turn your order around on short notice.

Banners
Full color photo banners are another great way to get your name out there. Whether you’re hanging it in front of your business or sponsoring a local event, our rugged banners are hand assembled to assure both quality and durability.

Equipment
Our photo quality prints come from a Mimaki JV-5 printer. Our latest setup is equipped with eco solvent inks, which have drastically cut down on harmful toxins emitted by previous ink technology. We also utilize a Zund flatbed plotter to create our custom cut decals and magnets. The pairing of these pieces of equipment has allowed us to complete jobs we never saw possible before.

What is the Matthews Mobile Media Warranty Policy?
Matthew Mobile Media offers a full warranty on everything we produce and install. Our warranty coincides with the 3M MCS (matched component system) and can be viewed here.

What is UASG Certified?
As a member of the United Application Standards Group (UASG) we are certified by 3M to install and remove vinyl graphics. This distinction provides us access to a network of certified installers throughout the United States. Allowing us to complete any job no matter where it’s located.

What are the benefits?
As a promotional tool, vinyl wraps are very cost effective when compared to advertising through traditional avenues. There is no recurring cost and your name is always visible. The vehicle wrap continues to work for you, even when you’re completing everyday tasks like going to the grocery store. Apart from getting your name out there every day, vehicle wraps also offer great protection to your vehicle’s paint job. Wrapping a new vehicle will not only give your vehicle a unique look, but also maintain its factory look once the wrap is removed.

What is a Wrap?
In our world a wrap consists of any object or surface that has been covered with adhesive vinyl. Sometimes these objects promote a business or event; sometimes these objects are decorative or informative; and sometimes these objects are just made to appear different from the underlying surface. We use a variety of vinyls to address these wraps and cater to each individual.
