FAQ's - Vehicle Wraps FAQ
What is a vehicle wrap? Is this the same as repainting my car? Will it damage my paint job?
A vehicle wrap is actually a digitally printed vinyl material that is professionally adhered to your car and can resemble a custom paint job. Your vehicle’s original paint job remains untouched and even protected beneath the surface.
Why should I use a vehicle wrap versus traditional advertising?
Studies have shown that in a city with a population of 50,000 a vehicle wrap will get over 8 million impressions per year. The city of Seattle is estimated at more than tne times this amount, approaching 600,000 people, so the cost is relatively low compared to traditional forms of advertising. Whether driving through traffic or parked on the streets your vehicle wrap spreads the word about your business even while you sleep!
What is perforated vinyl?
Perforated vinyl is covered in tiny holes which allow the driver to see through rear and side windows. This design allows for safe visibility from the inside of the vehicle, but limits visibility from the outside to ensure privacy.
What other kinds of vehicles can I wrap?
A vehicle wrap can be applied to vehicles of all shapes and sizes, from Smart Cars to semi trucks, boats to motorcycles and beyond. We are always open to new ideas and custom designs. When in doubt, just ask!
What about vehicle magnets? Can I wrap my car in these?
We will work with any size requirements you may have, but we recommend that vehicle magnets be no bigger than 4′ x 18″ and applied to a smooth surface. Common sizes for vehicle magnets include 10″ x 20″ or 12″ x 24″, and custom sizes can be created at no additional cost.
How long does it take to wrap my vehicle?
Once the design is finalized, installation can usually be scheduled within one week. Depending on size, most vehicles can be completed and ready for pick up in 1-2 days.
Can I wash my car with a vehicle wrap? What about waxing?
Vehicle wraps can handle any professional car wash that uses soft bristles, such as Elephant Car Wash in Seattle, or hand washing using a mild soap. To mantain the integrity and quality of the design do not use a high pressure car wash with hard bristles. Vehicle wraps can be waxed and this is recommended up to four times a year in order to keep colors vibrant.
Is a vehicle wrap permanent? Can I remove or change it?
A vehicle wrap is not permanent and we can provide removal when required. If your logo or contact information changes we can also create overlays to update your latest information.
How much do vehicle graphics cost?
