One form of advertising that is quickly catching on across the United States is the use of vehicle wraps. However, despite their growing popularity, many people have questions about this new form of advertising. To help, below are the answers to six frequently asked questions about vehicle wraps.
1. What Are Vehicle Wraps Made Of?
Vehicle wraps are made of a vinyl based polymer. This material has the ability to stretch tightly over nearly any surface. This includes cars, trucks, planes, trains and many other kinds of vehicles. These vinyl wraps fit so seamlessly they are often mistaken for brand new paintjobs.
2. How Long Does It Take to Install a Vehicle Wrap?
Installation depends on the specific vehicle that will be wrapped. Installation time can vary based on the size of the vehicle as well as the number of different curves and angles of that vehicle’s exterior. Obviously, hummer wraps will take longer to install than compact car wraps. Typically, however, installation should be complete in one to three days.
3. Are Vehicle Wraps Expensive?
Whether or not a vehicle wrap is expensive depends on a company’s advertising budget. In general, it will cost over $2,000 for a complete car wrap. Larger vehicles are sure to be more expensive. However, vinyl decals, which only cover a part of a vehicle, can be purchased for as little as $50. In the long term, car wraps may be a much cheaper advertising choice than other options due to the fact that purchasing vinyl car graphics is a onetime investment that can be used for months and even years.
4. Will a Vehicle Wrap Damage a Car’s Paintjob?
One of the great things about car wraps is they are absolutely temporary. When applied to a car, a vinyl wrap will not damage a car’s paintjob in any way. In fact, it may actually help preserve the paintjob by protecting it from ultraviolet rays and other things that can damage a car’s exterior. However, it is suggested that you have vinyl car graphics removed by a professional.
5. How Long Do Vehicle Wraps Last?
Vinyl wraps and other forms of vinyl car graphics are made to last for a significant period of time. In most cases, this is three to five years. There is really no other form of advertising that can be purchased for such a long time for that amount of money.
6. How Customizable Are Vinyl Wraps?
Vinyl wraps, cut vinyl decals and other forms of vinyl graphics are some of the most customizable forms of advertising on the market. Almost any design featuring millions of different combinations of graphics, text and color can be added to a vinyl wrap in high resolution.
