Everything You Need To Know About Vehicle Wraps

As well as making your car or van look great, vehicle wraps can also be one of the most effective forms of marketing available today. Your vehicle essentially becomes a moving advertisement board, so in some cases, it can garner thousands of views every day. In a competitive marketplace, to fight to get your brand recognised a vehicle wrap is a great idea.

Here is a list of the most important things you need to know about vehicle wrapping:

What is a vehicle wrap?

A wrap is a piece of vinyl that can be printed with your chosen design, laminated and then installed, or wrapped on your vehicle. The laminate is applied directly to the paintwork of your vehicle so that it could easily be mistaken for a custom paint job. A wide range of different colours, effects and designs can be printed onto laminate wraps, so the possibilities for how your vehicle can look are huge.

Can vehicle wraps be applied to windows?

Vinyl wraps can be applied to windows, but only rear, and rear side windows. These wraps are printed on special perforated vinyl, allowing the driver to be able to see through the wrapped windows.

Should I leave vehicle wrapping to the experts?

For great results, vehicle wrapping should always be left to an expert installer. An experienced installer will ensure that the vinyl material is laid out and applied to the vehicle accurately to provide a seamless finish. To achieve the best results, the whole wrapping process needs to be extremely precise, so it requires a skilled pair of hands.

Will a vehicle wrap damage the paintwork of my vehicle?

Vehicle wraps will not damage the paintwork of your vehicle at all, in fact, wraps can actually protect your paintwork and help to increase the value of your car when it comes to selling. Wrapping your vehicle helps to prevent the sun from bleaching paintwork, and protects from any debris that could cause chips in your paintwork.

Can I wrap a leased vehicle?

If you lease a fleet of vehicles for your business and are looking to increase the visibility of your brand, vehicle wrapping is an ideal solution. As wraps can be removed without causing any damages, there is no reason that leased vehicles cannot be wrapped.

How long does a vehicle wrap last?

As long as you are careful when washing your vehicle and choose to hand-wash rather than jet washing, wraps are expected to last 5 years or more. In many cases, wraps outlast the vehicle.
