That’s a Wrap!

What is a vehicle wrap?

A wrap is a large vinyl decal. The vinyl is applied directly over the paint of the vehicle. The application of the wrap allows you to change the car’s appearance in a short period of time. A wrap does not cover areas such as cracks, expansion joints, and seams. The materials are designed for outdoor use.

What are the graphics that are placed
on the windows?

The material on the windows is printed window perforation film, or ‘Window Perf’. Within the vinyl are tiny holes that allow passengers in the vehicle to see through the adhesive side. Window graphics are laminated with a clear laminate to protect the color from fading and keep dirt and water from reaching the perforation.

Can the graphics be removed?

The vehicle wrap material is manufactured with an adhesive designed to be removed from the paint with no damage.

How Long Does a Vehicle Wrap Last?

With proper care, a vinyl wrap will last four to five years or longer depending on the climate and care. Perforated Window Vinyl lasts one to one and a half years.
