The Vehicle Wrap Process

From designing to production and installation, learn everything you need to know about the vehicle wrap process here.

What is a Vehicle Wrap?

A vehicle wrap is a modern marketing tactic that functions much like a billboard. It advertises your business, goods, or services while you’re out on the road. The wrap itself is made from high quality vinyl with adhesive backing that sticks to your vehicle. When applied correctly, it will not harm your vehicles paint and, depending on the material chosen, can last up to 10 years before it needs replacing.

Vehicle Wrapping Coverage

Before beginning the vehicle wrap process, it may be helpful to know the differences in coverage. Depending on your budget or design goals, we offer different types of coverage for every vehicle. Each one  has its own pros and cons, so make sure to reach out to us with any questions you may have about these.

Full Wrap

A full wrap is, as the name conveys, full coverage of the whole vehicle. This may or may not include the roof, depending on the customer’s request. Full wraps are often the most eye-catching while on the road.

Partial Wrap

A partial wrap is very versatile, as “partial” implies a bit more than spot graphics, but not quite as much as a full wrap. Coverage varies in shape and size, but can go from small portions to almost full coverage.

Lettering & Spot Graphics

This option is suitable for those with a limited budget who wish to advertise their business while they travel in their vehicle. Cost will vary depending on size and the quality of material that is used

Production

Once the design has been scaled and colors have been matched, our production team begins printing on our large format, high quality printers. The design is printed onto high-quality vinyl with adhesive backing. These are then laminated, then trimmed or cut, and passed on to the installation team.

Install

The Installation department preps all surfaces receiving vinyl lettering or graphics. The panels or pieces are then measured and aligned according to the proof. Once the pinned up graphics are approved by the designer, the adhesive vinyl is laid, smoothed out, and cut according to body lines and creases. If there is any confusion about the layout, the designer who worked on the project can always be consulted about any issues.
