halloween wrapWith today’s modern technology, there are a lot of things that are now so surprisingly easy and fast, it’s frightening. We no longer have to put our bills in envelopes, apply a stamp and put it in the mailbox, and hope it gets to its destination on time before incurring late fees. We can lazily lie on our couch and click a button to change the channel on our TV, turn on our washing machine and start our car… it is kind of scary, yet amazing, how things continue to evolve and change. And wrapping your vehicle is no different. There are a lot of falsehoods out there, but we’re here to set the record straight and show you how truly simple vehicle wraps are.

Vehicle Wraps Really are Simple

Seriously. They’re simple to apply and simple to remove. Once your design is finalized and your car cleaned, it only takes a couple of days to apply a vehicle wrap. As for removal, one of the common misconceptions of vehicle wraps is that they’re difficult to remove. That could not be further from the truth. Vehicle wraps are designed with the purpose of easy application and removal, leaving no residue behind. Just make sure the removal is done by a professional.

Vehicle Wraps Can Protect the Paint Job

One of the great features of vehicle wraps is that they won’t damage the paint on your car—in fact, a wrap can protect it from the sun and from dirt, rocks and sand damage. The only time it could damage the paint is if the paint is already chipped or damaged beforehand. When it comes time to remove the wrap, it could take up more of the paint around the affected area. So when you bring your vehicle in, before we wrap it, we will conduct a full inspection, noting any damaged areas ahead of time. That way you know the possible outcomes when it comes time to remove the wrap.

Is Your Vehicle Leased? You Can Still Wrap It!

Between the tax benefits, low payments, and coverage under warranty, many businesses lease the vehicles in their fleet. But that’s no reason not to brand them with a vehicle wrap—if you’ve reviewed your lease agreement carefully. You’ll want to make sure it’s allowed in your agreement—or ask for it upfront. Once you’ve ensured it’s allowed, a vinyl wrap can be applied over the factory paint job without damaging it. Just make sure it’s removed before the warranty is up.

Windows Can be Wrapped—They're See-Through!

During the design phase of creating a vehicle wrap, some business owners are hesitant to include covering windows, concerned about visibility and safety. When it comes to the front of the vehicle, we absolutely agree: The front windshield and the windows directly to the left and right of the driver should not be covered. But the rear windows and rear windshield can be included in your design. The windows will be designed with premium film—that from the outside will continue your design, but are see-through from the inside. We create this same kind of illusion for business store windows as well!

Car Wraps 101: Everything You Need to Know

Posted by John Grigoli

Aug 27, 2020 12:45:00 PM

After a few years, vehicles often need a refresh. Sometimes, a business vehicle needs a fresh look to draw in new business. Other times, the paint on a vehicle has started to chip (caused by things like weather, sand, rocks, moisture, even bird droppings). However, a new paint job is not only expensive, but it could damage the resale value and it takes, on average, a week to complete—sometimes up to three depending on the vehicle size. If you’ve been putting off getting that new paintwork, car wraps are a fast, inexpensive solution! Here are the basics you need to know about wrapping your car.


What is Vinyl Wrap?

A vinyl car wrap is a thin, adhesive film that is applied over the paint of your car. But what’s great about this is it’s not just a decal that covers one area—it can literally wrap around your entire vehicle—and it allows you to change the car’s appearance temporarily, keeping the paint underneath protected.

Why Vinyl Vehicle Wraps?

There are many benefits to wrapping your car in vinyl. As stated earlier, it protects the paint underneath. It’s also easily removable, customizable, low cost and quick to apply. Wraps also require little maintenance and are highly durable. And it fits like a glove! When we create the wrap together with you, it is custom made to fit your vehicle, working with the locations of the doors, windows and lights to have maximum impact. 

For business vehicles and fleets, a wrap is a great way to advertise your services 24/7. Think about this:

  • Americans drive an average of 29 miles per day. That's a big window of undistracted opportunity to get in front of potential customers.
  • Individual vehicle advertising generates between 30,000-70,000 daily vehicular impressions.
  • Color improves brand recognition by 80%. A well designed wrap is going to stick in prospects minds.

What are the Options with Vinyl Wrap?

But the best part about vinyl car wraps are all the options!

  • Digital Print: Any kind of graphic design can be wrapped around your vehicle with cutting edge digital printing.
  • Matte: Matte is a popular choice, especially in black. Though it is often used for personal vehicles in lieu of a costly paint job, a matte look almost always grabs the attention of onlookers.
  • Color Change: Sometimes we just need a color change. By using a vinyl wrap in a solid, new color, you can the change your car’s color at a fraction of the price of a paint job, plus you can remove the vinyl at any time if you want to change the color back.
  • Carbon Fiber: Ideal for cars in the motor vehicle industry, a textured vinyl wrap can give your vehicle a luxury, high-end feel. It can be applied to the exterior, or just to the gear shift or dashboard on the interior.
  • Fluorescent: Thanks to state-of-the-art design techniques, you can make your ride really stand out, even glow in the dark! It can look great when used for racing (as shown below), for safety purposes or even as just as decal.

Delivery is Booming: Get Noticed with Custom Fleet Wraps

Posted by John Grigoli

Though the stay-at-home orders have lifted in most of the country, many people are still choosing to work, and primarily stay, at home in order to keep some distance between themselves and others. They are also continuing to skip the in-store experience when possible. For many businesses, this has resulted in a huge rise in home deliveries and services. Whether it be groceries, health care, office supplies or dinner, the delivery industry is booming and what better way to highlight your business’ delivery options than with custom wraps for your fleet.

In fact, Nielsen reported that 46% of people who view fleet wraps then jump online to learn more.

Vehicle Graphics For Fleets, Do's & Dont's

Branding your fleet, whether large or small, there are ways to efficiently manage the design and production process so price is efficient and your mobile advertising is effective.

Fleet Graphics

Straight or Slanted?

Logo style, straight or slanted? Logos are not created with sign company production and install in mind that's for sure. Murphy's law dictates we will be given a square style logo and asked to place it in a rectangular space, happens every time! But we figure it out. An effective approach is to angle the logo or some other main art so it reduces the stress of making sure it is perfectly even. With vehicles we are dealing with uneven spaces, recesses curves, you name it.

Wrap Design

Vehicle Color

Using similar or the same printed colors as the vehicle will hide install sins. This is not always possible but it helps. Wrapping a white car with black vinyl can easily become a challenge and adds time to make sure we trim absolutely spot on.

Vehicle Fleet Graphics

Full or Partial Wrap?

Do you need to wrap the whole car? We offer this technique as a way to reduce the strain on the budget. Our great designers can design in such a way as to wrap 3/4 of the car for example but make it look like a full wrap. This also helps especially to have the car the same color as the wrap. See our examples.


Vehicle availability

This is always a challenge. Busy operations usually do not plan to have a vehicle sitting around waiting to have a wrap done. But the reality is, streaming a vehicle through one after another is the way to roll out a branding program that will avoid delays and production bottle necks. Having vehicle arrive on time, washed and free of defects will allow installers to make sure vehicle is ready ahead of the install dry, clean and ready.
