With vinyl wrap, you can also affordably customize parts of your car. You don’t have to wrap your entire car; laying vinyl on just your hood, roof, mirrors, stripes, etc. is a common request.
Matte-paint jobs can be brittle and chip easily while vinyl wraps are more durable and harder to scratch. In the event that repairs are needed for the vinyl wrap, the part that was damaged can be easily replaced with a new strip of vinyl, providing a perfect match.
Vinyl wrapping your car or truck will hide dings or scratches while offering a “freshness” to the look of your vehicle.
Vinyl wrapping looks incredible, you’ll be turning heads left and right with your newly wrapped car, truck or motorcycle.
The most common ways to improve the life of a wrap include: protection from the sun, protection from water getting underneath the wrap and protection from abrasion. It is important to think about how your wrap may be exposed and, to discuss how to protect your wrap with your Decal Doctor Installer.
- Always ask how long the wrap will last and about the warranty coverage.
- Make sure you understand what parts of the vehicle are going to be wrapped. Not wrapping certain difficult parts of a vehicle such as rear-view mirrors or door handles may reduce the cost of the wrap. It is also critical to use a design that can incorporate un-wrapped parts of the vehicle for optimal appearance. It is not always necessary to wrap the roof of a vehicle and this can reduce your cost. For example, if a delivery van or motor home roof cannot be seen from the ground, then this part of the wrap could be eliminated. However, racing vehicles or vehicles that drive in big cities and are seen from above, it’s beneficial to wrap the roof.
- Ask about the vinyl that will be used. There are different qualities and price points of vinyl. Typically “high performance” vinyls are recommended for high quality vehicle wraps. There are also special vinyls designed just for walls and floors.
- Make sure you understand the total cost associated with the Wrap. There are frequently additional costs associated with vehicle prep and cleaning as well as design. Ask your Wrap Provider for an all-inclusive price.
- Design is the single most critical step for the success of your wrap. Some designers are more experienced and worth the extra cost associated with their services.
- Be sure to ask what special techniques will be used to prevent paint, clear-coat, and plastic-part damage. These techniques may increase the cost of the wrap.
- Be sure to ask what techniques will be used to prevent wrinkles, bubbles and seams. A wrap with zero wrinkles, bubbles and seams is typically more expensive than a normal wrap or may not be possible.
- Be sure to ask what all will be removed prior to wrapping the vehicle. Quality installers will take the time to remove lights, door handles, etc… to ensure the most complete and cleanest looking wrap.
