How Your Paint Can Impact Your Vehicle Wrap – What to Know

  • SHARE:

Vinyl vehicle wraps have long been used to protect a car or truck’s paint job, change the color, add graphic detailing, advertise a sponsor (in the case of a race car), or promote a business. These colorful wraps are becoming increasingly popular, but there are some misconceptions as to the best time to use a wrap and the best time to use paint to change your vehicle’s appearance. The best condition under which a wrap can be applied is when a vehicle has a new or high-quality paint job. The paint should be healthy, have a strong clear coat, no deep scratches, dents, rust, corrosion, or other texture roughness. Top quality vehicle wraps can help extend the life of a good paint job by protecting your vehicle from exposure to the elements and road hazards like chemicals, rocks, and other debris.

Vehicle wraps can improve your car’s aesthetic, but they are not a solution for a bad paint job, as any imperfections in your vehicle’s paint will be visible through the wrap, especially if these defects have affected the texture of the paint. Weaknesses in a vehicle’s paint can also affect the adhesion of a vinyl wrap, compromising the integrity of the project. A quality vehicle wrap requires a good paint job to start with, and installation should be done by an experienced professional installer with a good reputation, as a flawless wrap installation requires a highly skilled technician.

When considering a partial or full wrap, it is important to know what the wrap is made of, as the materials used will impact the visual quality as well as the durability of the wrap, and how it affects your vehicle’s paint. At Big Picture Graphics, we design and install beautiful graphic wraps on all types of vehicles for all types of businesses using high quality 3M graphics for our vehicle wraps. We recommend using cleaning products designed specifically for car care to help keep your vehicle graphics looking their best.

Vinyl vehicle wraps allow you to change the color or other aspects of the appearance of your car, and unlike repainting your vehicle, a wrap can be removed if you wish to return the car to its original appearance or make another design change, such as when racing team sponsors change, or a business changes its logo, phone number, or other aspect of its brand message. Vinyl wraps are not just limited to application on cars and trucks, and partial wraps are available as well as full wraps. Motorcycles, ATVs, panel trucks, RVs, food trucks, vans, buses, trailers, boats, tractors, even 18 wheelers can all be partially or fully wrapped.
