5 Common Questions about Vinyl Car WrapsWhat is a car wrap?

A vehicle wrap is a colored vinyl film that’s applied directly to your vehicle’s existing finish by a professional installer. Don’t try this at home! The key to a long-lasting, perfectly smooth finish is professional installation. Vinyl Solutions is here to make sure our customers’ expectations are exceeded.

What kinds of vehicles can be wrapped?

Almost anything! Cars, trucks, boats, vans. Trailers and motorcycles. Golf carts, ORVs. You name it, and we can probably wrap it. Businesses often wrap their commercial fleet vehicles (including large utility vans and even tractor trailers) to equip their company with moving billboards. Everywhere their vehicles go, their business gets advertised. Check out our gallery to see how others have used vinyl wraps.

What options are available?

How long do you have? Our premium vinyl comes in hundreds of colors and multiple finishes, including metallic, matte and brushed. Use a single color, a single finish, or layer and combine them to create something totally unique. The possibilities really are almost endless. But don’t worry, the experts at Vinyl Solutions can help you navigate the choices whether you have no idea what you want or you just need a little help nailing down a final design.

How long does a vehicle wrap last?

A wrap can last from 5 to 7 years, depending on use and care. Car wraps can and should be washed to look their best. Use a brushless car wash or hand wash for best results and less chance of damage. Hand waxing will also help protect your finish. First and foremost, make sure you choose a professional installer. The better the installation, the longer your wrap will last and the better it will look.

Do wraps damage the vehicle finish when removed?

When professionally installed and removed according to manufacturer’s directions, vinyl wraps will not damage the vehicle’s original finish. This is one reason that wraps are a great option for customizing a lease vehicle. Some of our customers even use a clear vinyl wrap called PPF (Paint Protective Film) specifically to protect their vehicle’s finish from chips, dings, and scratches. PPF helps preserve a vehicle’s resale value, keeping the underlying finish looking as pristine as the day the vehicle was driven off the lot.
