Vehicle Wrap FAQs

While it may be easy to compare vehicle wrapping to applying stickers, it is important to note that these two processes are quite different beyond the basic fact that they use adhesive and vinyl. Vehicle wrapping is a much more complex process that requires specialized equipment and trained professionals to ensure a flawless and long-lasting finish. Unlike stickers, vehicle wraps are custom-designed and manufactured specifically for vehicle wrapping. Additionally, it takes a lot of skill and experience to fit vinyl to contours of the vehicle perfectly, cut precisely, and create a seamless, paint-like professional look. Additionally, vehicle wraps are much more durable than stickers and can last for several years without fading, cracking or peeling. So, while they may share a few similarities, it is important to understand the key differences between these two processes before embarking on a vehicle wrapping project.

A full color change wrap will typically take 3-4 full days. A lot depends on the vehicle make, model, etc. 

Vinyl wrapping your vehicle has a multitude of advantages that are worth mentioning. Firstly, it can completely transform the appearance of your vehicle, making it look like a brand new car without the expense of a new purchase. Secondly, it provides a layer of protection for the original paintwork, keeping it in pristine condition and preventing scratches, dings and other types of damage. Moreover, vinyl is incredibly durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions, making it a cost-effective option in the long run. It also allows you to showcase your personal style and creativity, as vinyl comes in an array of colors, finishes, and patterns. And finally, removing the vinyl wrap is a straightforward process that doesn’t cause any damage to the paintwork, allowing you to change the appearance of your vehicle quickly and easily.

More often than not, using heat, including a heat gun, is a necessary part of the install. The tricky part is knowing when, where and how much heat to use. Curves, contours and recesses generally require heat. But, heat is used to “pre-stretch” the film and then allow it to cool and relax back to its original state. This prevents the aforementioned areas from failing. Heating and over stretching/forming the film is not a good practice. 

Seams are often a necessary strategy to prevent overstretching and failures. When done correctly, seems are almost invisible and generally hidden on body lines. Seams allow wrapping of deep recessed areas, often called “inlays”, without stretching film, and thus avoiding install failures. Seams are good and often necessary to achieve a quality, long-lasting product.
