  • SHARE:

If you’ve been contemplating a custom paint job, it might be time to think differently about vehicle wraps. We have access to a wide variety of cast vinyl from the world’s top car wrap film manufacturers. Everything from standard matte black, to satins, chromes, camouflages, and more. In an attempt to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about this amazing customization to your vehicle, we’ve compiled a list below.

What is a vehicle wrap?

Wraps come in all different shapes & sizes. Wraps start as large sheets of adhesive backed vinyl film designed specifically for vehicle application made available in a variety of styles & finishes. Some wraps are a full color change in matte, satin or gloss finishes, as well as chrome, “carbon fiber” look, and beyond. Vehicle wraps can also consist of printed designs containing imagery, photos, graphics, or branded elements to represent a business or group, or as “accents” on vehicle features like trim, spoilers, hoods, roofs, and trunks.

Does a vehicle wrap damage your paint?

No, but improper installation or removal can! A bad install means your vehicle’s paint might get damaged from razor blade scratches, and poor adhesion that ultimately leads to wrap failure. Also, if the wrong type of film is used during the application like a sign vinyl with extra strength adhesive or low flexibility, it can strip your paint and cause serious damage if and when it is not removed with care!

How long does a vehicle wrap last?

Wrap life span really depends on how well the film is cared for, how much day to day stress the wrap gets from road driving, and what quality of film was used to do the installation. Some films last longer than others, and the thicker they are the more damage they can take. We’ve wrapped vehicles that see plenty of road time, and their films have survived more than 5 years without needing parts re-installed or failing entirely.

Can you remove vehicle wraps?

Most definitely, however it is a bit of a tedious process to undertake.

How long does a vehicle wrap take to install?

If the wrap is the primary focus, turn-around time can be as short as a week or less depending on complexity. Stripes, graphics & accent pieces can typically be completed in 24 – 72 hours, but exterior wraps or full color changes with door jambs will take considerably longer.
