Vehicle wraps explained.

A vehicle wrap is an optional accessory for your vehicle. It is similar to a window or headlight tint. However, a vehicle wrap differs as it is made from different materials and offers different outcomes. Aside from aesthetic upgrades, here is what you can expect from a vehicle wrap.

  • Protect your vehicle’s paintwork from being damaged by UV rays.
  • Protect your vehicle’s paintwork from superficial scrapes and scratches.
  • Can protect from stains.
  • Can be a great way to market your product, if you also happen to be a business owner.

The three forms of vehicle wrapping

There are three kinds of vehicle wraps, all of which provide the same benefits, however, the main difference between the three is the aesthetic results granted by each kind of wrap.

  • Clear Vinyl Wrapping – This is a transparent layer of wrapping, ideal for those who want the protection provided by wraps, but don’t want to change the look of their vehicle.
  • Colour Vinyl Wrapping – This form can change the colour of your vehicle without painting it, or can be used to alter the tone of your vehicle.
  • Advertising/Custom Wraps – This form of wrapping is unique, and is subject to the specifications of the customer. Handy for businesses that are independent or commercial. These wraps are commonly used on F1 cars or other racing vehicles.

In regard to the production of this specific wrap, individual designs can be created with the wrap applicator, or by the customer themselves. Some vehicle wrapping services have their own options for people to choose from.

Is it better to paint a vehicle than wrap it?

Not exactly. It is subjective to your budget, and your needs. However, vehicle wraps provide the perfect opportunity for you to ‘test’ a colour on your vehicle before committing to it along with the extensive time it takes to apply the layers of paint required. Vehicle wraps can be removed, whereas paint is a permanent choice.

Additionally, paint can also be a more expensive process, as you may need multiple layers, or different colours depending on your request. Whereas a wrap could likely save you a lot of money.

How much does a full vehicle wrap cost?

The price of a full vehicle wrap varies on a vehicle by vehicle basis. This is because some vehicles are dramatically different in size and shape, and thus will not be using equal amounts of wrapping per installation.

Incidentally, a custom vehicle wrap, depending on the complexity of the design and colours requested, can result in a higher cost. The cheapest option would be the transparent wrapping. But again is subject to the size of your vehicle.

Alternatively, opting for wraps on certain areas of your vehicle, rather than all of it, could result in a cheaper outcome.

Vehicle wraps, if taken care of correctly, can last up to 7 years. Our vehicle wraps have a 3-year warranty to ensure peace of mind. Alongside the professional quality of our wraps and installation process, we can guarantee you will not be disappointed with our options and service.

Are vehicle wraps legal?

Yes, vehicle wraps are perfectly legal. If you opt for a custom design that contains offensive or inappropriate imagery or wording, then you may be asked to remove it, and depending on the severity, you can face legal consequences.

When should you not get a vehicle wrap?

Although vehicle wraps are a harmless and effective customisation option, there are some occasions in which they are not suitable for certain vehicles, they are…

  • Vehicles with heavy damage, including dents.
  • If your vehicle’s paint is already damaged.
  • If you do not own or have the permission to customise the vehicle in any way.
  • If you already have a vehicle wrap (unless you are replacing it)

Who needs a vehicle wrap?

We suggest that everyone should invest in a vehicle wrap to preserve the aesthetics of their vehicles, however, the following circumstances are the ideal scenarios for someone to invest in a vehicle wrap.

  • You want to protect the paintwork of your vehicle.
  • You want to change the colour or tone of your vehicle without having it painted.
  • You want a custom design on your vehicle.
