How long does a wrap last?

On average, a wrap will last 3-5 years depending on how well it is taken care of. Like anything else, over time, everyday wear and tear will impact your wrap.  If you maintain your wrap, it has the potential to remain looking brand new for up to 6 or 7 years.

What brands of vinyl do you use?

 We only use the industries top brands; Vvivid, Avery, 3M, Hexis, Oracal, and APA.

Which brand do you recommend?

VVivid’s chrome line is our personal favorite, however we stand behind all of the brands we use. Each material, though very similar, handles differently. We have experience with those differences and are confident that with a professional installation, any of the above mentioned brands will give you equal results.

What is the process for you to wrap my car?

Depending on how much a client wants wrapped, the process takes about 2-4 days. Larger, more extensive wraps could take up to a week. We begin by thoroughly washing all surfaces to ensure complete adhering of the vinyl. This includes a hand wash and dry, followed by an alcohol treatment and clay bar to remove any left over oils/waxes/residue. The less contaminants left behind, the longer your wrap will last. Next, we remove all emblems, door handles, lights, vents, etc. This ensures that all edges of your wrap will be hidden from view for that flawless, “is that a paint job?,” quality assurance. 

Once your vehicle is prepared, we begin your installation. After your wrap is installed, everything that was removed prior is re-installed to pre-installation condition. We finalize the process with another hand wash and dry and a treatment to give it that showroom look.

What are the benefits of having my vehicle wrapped?

Getting your new car wrapped is one of the best, customizable, ways to protect your fresh paint job and help retain your vehicles value. Vinyl wraps keep harmful elements from getting at your paint. Take it off 5 years down the road and your car will look like it did they day you drove it off the lot.  From clear paint protection film, to chromes and custom designs/graphics, we have something for everyone. If you can think it, we can do it.  

If you damage any part of it, it is easily and affordably replaceable. If someone keys your car or that shopping cart wandering in the parking lot hits you, instead of having to get the entire panel repainted and then blended to match the rest of the car, you can have that panel replaced much quicker and for a fraction of the cost.

Can you wrap other things?

Yes, we can wrap just about any smooth surface.  We have material that resembles wood grains or marble even. We can do things like your kitchen cabinets and counters, we have done a drum set before, sporting gear (snowboards, skiis, skateboards, helmets, etc), laptops, car interiors, wheels, breaks, boats, motorcycles, ATV’s, and jetskis.

Do you guarantee your work?

Yes, we warranty all work for 1 year and provide the option to purchase an extended warranty.  We ensure 100% customer satisfaction and are committed to providing a superior experience. We also have an active YouTube channel where we frequently post educational training videos on many of the vehicles we have in the shop. You can see first hand how we get the job done.

How much vinyl do you need per car?

For most 2/4 door cars, we use approximately 50-65ft. If you’re looking for more than just a simple color change, we may use up to 80ft.
