Wrap FAQs

01

WHAT IS A VEHICLE WRAP?

Vehicle wraps can take many shapes, colors and sizes. A full wrap covers the entire surface of the car or vehicle. A partial wrap covers only a specific portion of the vehicle and uses the vehicle’s paint scheme as the backdrop for the full design. Vehicle wraps are done with vinyl materials (think of it as a large decal) that conform to the shape of your vehicle. They can be done in solid colors as a paint replacement or can have digitally printed designs on the vinyl to really make your vehicle stand out.

DOES IT AFFECT THE PAINT ON MY CAR?

The wrap materials we use are formulated with removable adhesive that does not harm your cars factory paint (vehicles with aftermarket/repair paint jobs will vary by quality and will need to be tested prior to wrapping). In fact, many people find that by wrapping their vehicle, it can possibly assist in keeping a higher resale value on the vehicle due to the protective benefits of the wrap.

04

HOW LONG DOES A VEHICLE WRAP LAST?

Printed Pixel vehicle wraps installed with high performance cast vinyls should not fade, crack, or peel for up to 5 years in MOST locations when cared for properly. Different regions where the climate is more harsh than others will see weathering quicker then other regions where the climate is more stable year round. If you take care of your wrap like you would a high quality paint job you should have no problems and your wrap will last for many years.

DOES IT MATTER WHAT COLOR MY CAR IS?

Vehicle wrap film is not translucent therefore you cannot see through it, however some lighter films on darker vehicles can have slight color shift.

I WANT A DESIGN WITH GRAPHICS ON THE WINDOWS, WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO SEE THROUGH THEM?

Yes we can print window graphics on a perforated vinyl that allows you to see through the material while retaining the image. Please check local laws as they do vary. Typically only the rear and rear passenger windows are allowed to be covered.

CAN YOU WRAP THE ROOF?

Absolutely. On most automobiles the roof is included. Generally roofs are not wrapped (vans, trucks or SUVs), unless it is requested (for an additional fee).

WHAT IF I PLAN TO CHANGE MY COMPANY LOGO OR PHONE NUMBER IN THE FUTURE

This is usually not a problem. We can print and install graphic overlays, so that information may be removed or replaced if you need to change or update your car wrap. Additionally we could also edit the original files and reprint those sections of the wrap if you would like a more streamlined install without overlays.

12

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO WRAP MY VEHICLE?

Great question. Every vehicle is different and has its own set of challenges. Please plan on us having the vehicle for a full day in order for us to properly wrap your vehicle. If the vehicle is able to be dropped off the night before the full day of the install, that is even better
