What is a vehicle wrap?
Wraps come in all different shapes & sizes. Wraps start as large sheets of adhesive backed vinyl film designed specifically for vehicle application made available in a variety of styles & finishes. Some wraps are a full color change in matte, satin or gloss finishes, as well as chrome, “carbon fiber” look, and beyond. Vehicle wraps can also consist of printed designs containing imagery, photos, graphics, or branded elements to represent a business or group, or as “accents” on vehicle features like trim, spoilers, hoods, roofs, and trunks. Truly, the possibilities are endless; recent advancements in vinyl production technology have also opened up the possibilities to textured vehicle wraps like leather, alligator, snake skin, or holographic & 3D films!
How much do vehicle wraps cost?There are two basic types of wraps. One is digitally printed on vinyl and the other is an already produced wrap like a Matte Black (what we refer to as a color change wrap). Every vehicle & application is different, so price really depends on the scope of your vehicle wrap project. A complete wrap includes door jambs, inner door frames, and sills — this level of vehicle coverage is recommended for those who desire a full color change, and is obviously the most costly. Partial wraps without jambs, frames, and sills are less expensive. Also, the extent of design work will make a difference.
NOTE: prices do not include full vehicle disassembling or re-assembling, or removal of previous films, wraps, and clear bra.
Does a vehicle wrap damage your paint?
No, but improper installation or removal can! A bad install means your vehicle’s paint might get damaged when it is removed if not done properly. Also, if the wrong type of film is used during the application like a sign vinyl with extra strength adhesive or low flexibility, it can strip your paint and cause serious damage if & when it is not removed with care!
How long does a vehicle wrap last?
Wrap life span really depends on how well the film is cared for, how much day to day stress the wrap gets from road driving, and what quality of film was used to do the installation. Some films last longer than others, and the thicker they are the more damage they can take. For example the top of the line Matte Black Avery vinyl is very thick and is designed to last over 10 years. An average vinyl wrap can last up to 5 years. We use 3M and Avery products because they are American made, best in class, and carry 3 year warranties.
Can you remove vehicle wraps?
Most definitely. While it is a bit of a tedious process to undertake, we offer wrap removal services as well as installation, and would be happy to assist. Contact us with more information about what type of wrap you would like to have removed & we’ll help you get back to fresh paint!
Can you wrap unpainted or primed vehicles or body components?
No. With primed and unpainted vehicles or body kits, the surface texture does not allow for proper adhesion of air egress vinyls, and makes the wrap prone to failure & lifting.
How do I care for my vinyl wrap?
Proper wrap care starts with the basics. Keeping your vehicle’s surface clean is the primary concern, so frequent hand washing to eliminate surface contaminates is necessary if you want to keep your wrap from getting stained or damaged from road grime. For those of you with a gloss free exterior, we offer wrap waxing services for matte & satin films to help keep them protected as well as maintain a nice soft, flat finish.
Will a wrap protect my vehicle?
Typical matte colored film is around 2-4 MILS thick and won’t bear too much of an impact from large rocks or chunky road debris. All digitally printed vinyls get extra protection because we put a UV protected laminate over the vinyl which also helps protect your paint.
How long does a vehicle wrap take to install?
If the wrap is our primary focus, turn around time can be as short as a week or less depending on complexity. Stripes, graphics & accent pieces can typically be completed in 24 – 72 hours, but exterior wraps or full color changes with door jambs will take considerably longer.
Do you offer discounts on vehicle wraps?
It’s not something we do regularly, but discounting vehicle wraps is something we take into consideration for appropriate parties who would like it known where they had their wrap installed. If you are interested in representing and promoting the NorthWest Auto Salon brand as part of your color change, printed wrap, custom graphics, or in a new or innovative way, we would love to hear about it!
Are vehicle wraps road legal?
In most cases, yes. While the jury is still out on the legality of vehicle wraps in most states due to their recent rise in popularity, we have heard of action being taken to limit certain films from road use by regulating their production size. Varieties of chrome and reflective films are intended for off road use only or for minor graphical additions as opposed to total car coverage. There isn’t a current state law barring you from changing the color of your car via vehicle wrap that we know of, or requiring you to re-register your vehicle in a new color.
Does my vehicle need to be clean before I can wrap it? Most definitely. Dirt and contaminants on your exterior would be trapped under the film, posing greater harm to your paint and eventually causing the wrap to fail if they were not cleaned off before installation.
What happens if my wrap gets damaged?
There are a few courses of action we can take depending on how your wrap gets damaged, where the damage occurred, and how extensive it is. Worst case scenario, the wrap must be removed entirely, but more than likely we will be able to pull a section of the wrap and replace it with a new piece of film that was left over from your installation. Depending on the design or layout of your wrap and where the damage is located, we may also need to reprint graphics or simply patch a spot in.
Do you offer printed, branded, or customized vehicle wraps?
Printed, branded, and customized vehicle wraps are something we specialize in. If you already have a design mocked up and simply need to get film printed and applied, or you want us to take it all the way from concept to completion, we would be glad to assist in bringing your personal or company fleet vehicles up to spec
