How Are Advertising Vehicle Wraps Made?

Advertising Vehicle WrapsLet’s face it, advertising vehicle wraps are like moving billboards for your business. They’re really the very best way to spread the word about your business, as most of us use our cars every single day of our lives.

Advertising vehicle wraps come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. Some cover part of a vehicle’s door, while others cover the entire car. Technology is improving all the time, so are advertising vehicle wraps. When we flawlessly print and apply your wrap, it looks like you just got a custom paint job at a fraction of the cost.

Okay, so now that we’ve established that vehicle wraps are awesome and beneficial beyond measure to your business, how are they made and applied?

Production & Applications of Advertising Vehicle Wraps

A custom design (either designed by you, a graphic designer, or both of you working together) is printed carefully onto a form of vinyl—usually a pressure-activated adhesive form of positional vinyl.

  1. After we line the graphics up correctly, we smooth out the vinyl and a quickly post heat with a blowtorch (very carefully of course).
  2. Any air bubbles escape through special channels in the vehicle vinyl wrap and we do a few quick smoothing swipes.

Some common questions customers have about advertising vehicle wraps include:

  1. Will it hurt my vehicle’s paint? The answer is no. No harm is done to your factory paint job when a professional graphic design company applies and removes the vehicle advertising wraps.
  2. How do I take care of my vehicle advertising wrap? Keeping it clean is number one on the to do list. Dirt and acid, especially for those who live in urban areas or near the coast, are a wrap’s biggest problem. The best way to wash your wrap is to hand wash it with a non-abrasive cloth using very mild cleaner. After a rinse, let it air dry. If you don’t have time to hand wash your vehicle’s advertising wrap, take it through a commercial “no-touch” car wash but remember to skip the heated drying process and avoid car wash places with excessive pressure in their sprayers.
  3. How much is it going to cost me? Advertising wraps for your vehicle can range anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to ‘OMG-you paid how much for that?’ The only way to know is to contact a few graphic design companies and get an estimate. Make sure you check out their work before deciding. Sometimes, it’s a classic case of you get what you pay for. When it comes to advertising your business, you want to get the best bang for your buck. The benefits reaped from the investment will be well worth it.
