What is a vehicle wrap?
A vehicle wrap covers some or all of the surface of your car with vinyl similar to that used in car decals. Vinyl wraps can be done in solid colors, essentially acting as a replacement for the paint job on your car or they can feature full-color digitally-printed designs created on large-capacity printers.
At Wraps1, we use 3M™ car wrap materials, which are formulated with a removable adhesive that doesn’t damage your car’s paint. Many people look to wraps as an alternative to paint jobs because it can assist in keeping your vehicle’s resale value due to the protection offered by the vinyl, especially from elements such as sun damage and road debris.
How long does a vinyl wrap last?
It depends on climate, outdoor exposure and other factors. Talk to Wraps1 about your vehicle and how you can best extend the life of your vinyl wrap through hand washing, proper storage and more.
What are the preferred wrap for vehicles?
Full wraps are suggested over partial wraps due to exposed areas becoming worn by weather. Full wraps help to protect the car’s paint from fading and scratching.
How do you clean a wrapped vehicle?
To increase the lifespan of your car wrap, you should have your vehicle hand washed. Using high pressure washers can decrease the life expectancy of your wrap. Also, we suggest you use a mild dish soap and a few other detail products we found have worked. Please contact your sales representative for more details.
Will vinyl material damage the paint on my car?
Our wraps are guaranteed from the manufacturer to protect newer vehicles that are 5 years old or newer and they must have OEM paint. If your vehicle has been repainted then there is no guarantee that the paint will be perfect when you remove the vinyl wrap. All aftermarket products including clear bras, new paint, striping, etc is not covered under any manufacturer warranty. We will try our best to make sure your paint is perfect when removing the wrap but there is no guarantee if your vehicle includes any aftermarket products. If paint is removed from a vehicle that has OEM paint and is 57 years old or newer then we will submit all issues to our manufacturer for them to cover. This process could take anywhere from 3-6 weeks for us to get the refund and fix your vehicle. See below for a few more tips and tricks of the trade we follow:
- For promotional vehicles, we recommend using less aggressive wrap vinyls that have more air-egress and slide ability properties that have been shown to be less damaging to the base-paint.
- A less prepped or short-term wrap (i.e. one installed without using adhesive promoters) is usually easier to remove without base-paint damage.
- We strongly believe that you should allow your printed vinyl to cure for at least 24 to 48 hours before laminating. It is possible for uncured ink to migrate through the adhesive into the base paint underneath potentially causing damage.
Note: there is no guarantee that a vinyl wrap will not remove any paint from your vehicle, but taking these simple steps can minimize the risk of potential damage.
