Everything to Know About Vehicle Wraps

Posted on

Many people like to customize their vehicles, and customized logos and graphics can also help promote your business. Luckily, instead of expensive paint, you can choose vehicle wraps. These wraps offer a flexible and affordable way to change the appearance of your vehicle. To learn more, keep reading.

What Are Vehicle Wraps?

A vehicle wrap is like putting a change of clothes on your vehicle. It's not painted — instead, the technician applies a large sheet of flexible thin vinyl to the exterior of the vehicle. They can be used to change the color of your car, but they can also be used to add graphics, logos, words, etc., to the vehicle. Thanks to the thin flexible vinyl, the wrap fits smoothly and snuggly around every corner, contour, and curve.

Unlike paint, technicians can easily remove vehicle wraps, making them safe if you are leasing a vehicle or still repaying your auto loan. Some wraps cover the entire vehicle, but partial wraps only cover part of the vehicle, such as the hood or back half of the vehicle.  

How Much Do Vehicle Wraps Cost?

Car wrapping is a cheaper alternative to getting your vehicle painted. If you want a full new coat of paint, expect to pay about $3,000 to $5,000. However, if you want a graphic or logo, the price could skyrocket to $10,000 or more.

On the other hand, the cost for a car wrap, including a logo or design, costs about $2,000 to $4,000. With good care, your graphic wrap can last up to 10 years, but most people must replace them after three to five years. To maintain your wrap, you'll want to park your vehicle in a garage, safe from the elements. UV rains, for example, can fade the warp.  

What Are the Benefits of Vehicle Wraps?

Vehicle wraps offer many benefits, especially when compared to repainting. Thanks to the low cost and easy application/removal, you can change the appearance of your car more often for less money. Plus, with the printed graphics, your car can easily have a unique appearance. On top of that, the wrap causes no damage to the underlying paint.

Businesses can also benefit from vehicle wraps. They are affordable and flexible advertising. Driving around with your logo and business name on your vehicle exposes more potential customers to your business.

Plus, you can better market your business too. For example, if you are a florist, putting flowers all over your vehicle could really make you stand out. Of course, because you can easily swap out wraps, you can also change them to stay current or promote new services/products.

Vehicle wraps are a great way to get the car you want. Plus, they can be great marketing tools for attracting more customers. If you would like to know more, contact a vehicle wrap service provider in your area today.
