 What is Vinyl Wrapping?

Vinyl wrapping is a process designed to protect your car’s paint and provide a wide range of customization options. Vinyl is a thin film that is applied over the paint of your car. Think of it like a giant decal. You’ve probably encountered a vehicle with a vinyl wrap of some sort, even if you didn’t realize it. Many new cars are offered with some clear protective film applied to the front bumper and leading edge of the hood. The film offers a protective barrier against rocks and other debris that the front of the vehicle is subjected to on a regular basis. It keeps the paint underneath from taking the brunt of the impact and keeps the car looking newer, longer. A vinyl wrap takes the same concept and applies it to the entire vehicle. Instead of wrapping just the front of the car, you wrap the whole car. You’re not limited to clear protective films, either. Companies have developed a wide range of colored vinyl, offered in a large number of finishes, to give you virtually unlimited options when it comes to the exterior of your car.

 

Why Choose Vehicle Wrap?

There are many great reasons to choose a vinyl wrap for your vehicle. Let’s take a look at some of the pros.

 

Low Cost

The cost of a vinyl wrap is one of its most appealing features. Compared to a quality paint job, a full vehicle wrap will cost a fraction of the price.

 

Variety of Options

Vinyl wraps offer a larger variety of color and finish options than paint. Any color you can paint a car can be matched with vinyl. Many companies offer color-shifting wraps that transition from one color to another depending on the angle of the light. Each color can also be given different finishes such as gloss, semi-gloss, matte, or satin. You can even use vinyl to mimic other materials such as carbon fiber, chrome, stainless steel, or even leather.

 

It’s Removable

If you decide you want to go back to the original paint, or a whole new color, the vinyl can be easily removed and replaced. This allows you to change the look of your car more often.

 

Protects Your Paint

Wrapping your car with vinyl also provides protection for your original paint. When it comes time to sell your car, you can remove the vinyl to reveal the pristine paint underneath.

 

Digital Design

Vinyl wraps can be customized with digital printed designs. This allows you to create an unmistakable appearance for your car. A quick search of Google or Instagram will show some incredible examples of the designs that can be printed on vinyl. You can find examples of cars wrapped to look like old war planes to brand new super cars wrapped to look like they are covered in the patina of sitting in the California sun for decades. Digital designs are also a cost-effective option for advertising with your car.
