A wrap is a large vinyl graphic or decal that is applied over the original paint of the vehicle. This form of vehicle advertising is popular in Salt Lake City and throughout Utah to promote your business or change the overall look of your vehicle!
Generally Speaking, a full wrap will cover all of the painted surfaces of the vehicle, including the roof or parts of the vehicle that may not be visible to the naked eye.
Anything less than a full wrap is considered a partial wrap. A partial wrap usually means applying a decal to a specific area on the vehicle, such as a door, hood, rear window, etc.
Vehicle wraps are produced in three phases.
The first is the design phase, which includes measuring and photographing the vehicle, designing and producing digital graphics, and creating printable files.
The second is the production phase where the graphics are printed and laminated.
The third is installation where the printed vinyl is applied to the vehicle.
In some cases there may be a pre-installation phase, which is the removal of the pre-existing graphics and cleaning if requested.
Vehicle wrap cost varies from vehicle to vehicle. When we give you a quote on a project, we consider five important things: creative consultation and design time, materials (including vinyl and lamination), print production, vehicle preparation and installation complexity. The size of the vehicle to be wrapped and the type of vehicle play a part in cost. In general, vehicles with compound curves and indentations are more difficult and the full vinyl car wrap cost will be more than a vehicle with more angular contours. Wrapping larger vehicles will require a higher printing cost, so partial wraps are a great way to minimize cost as opposed to a full wrap. Cast (high performance) vinyl is more expensive than Calendared (intermediate) vinyl, but lasts longer. Be sure to ask for details about our car wrap costs.
If you are using a vehicle wrap for marketing, vehicle wraps are the most cost effective option available. It has been proven that the cost per impression of vehicle wraps is far less than other forms of advertising such as billboards, television, radio and even magazines. If you are using your vehicle wrap to improve the appearance of your vehicle, there are several benefits to wrapping your vehicle
Your paint will NOT be damaged during the removal/install process if done professionally. Yet this is dependent on the paint condition prior to the wrap.
YES! All vehicles must be free of dust, mud, wax, oil, Armor-All and other agents that may prevent the vinyl from adhering to the paint surface. A small $50 fee will be added to the final invoice if our installers determine the vehicle Too dirty for install upon the signed pre-installation checklist.
Hand washing is best. Try to avoid high pressure washes and be careful never to use an ice scraper on window graphics. There are specially designed products to clean and polish vinyl graphics. We will be happy to tell you about them.
Production time of vehicle wraps will vary widely from project to project. Design can take between several days to several weeks. We can have you “wrapped up” within 2-5 business days, depending on the size and style of wrap you want installed.
