The colour of your car doesn’t matter for vehicle wrapping unless your design incorporates the existing paintwork into the design. If that was the case, we would use as much of your existing paint colour in order to save you money. It is however worth considering the colour of the vehicle if trying to say wrap a white car in black. Wrapping does have it’s limitations, and you may find that you will slightly see the existing colour of the vehicle through door seams and in door jams. It is really a matter of understanding the limitations of wrapping and managing your expectations.

The durability of car wrapping, car magnets and vinyl cut lettering greatly depends of the exposure they receive. On average, our vehicle wraps should show no visable fading for 4 years on a vertical surface. Having said that there is no reason why the prints would last far greater than that.

The vinyls we use on banners are 7 – 10 year vinyls – the best on the market. It is the ink that is the imiting factor with this process.

Vehicle Signage or Vehicle Wrapping is one of the most effective forms of advertising for your business.

A vehicle sign can be something as simple as a web address on a rear window right up to a complete vehicle wrap.

We archive all our work, so we could print a partial piece of your car wrap and install the damaged panel. Keep in mind that the sun may have faded the surrounding panels so an exact colour match for your car wrap can not be guaranteed.

A vehicle wrap is the process of wrapping or coating your vehicle in printed vinyl. We use a high grade cast conformable vinyl. This means we can get the material to conform to the peaks and troughs of your vehicles body. A vehicle wrap means you can design just about anything on your car. You can use photographic images of blending colours.

A vehicle wrap could essentially change the colour of your vehicle, and when it comes time to sell you car, you can strip it and have your paint job untouched.

We can do a complete wrap on your vehicle, but in most cases we can complete a partial wrap and still achieve an amazing and visually stunning result.

Wrapping a vehicle simply extends your options with your signage. We can produce things now that were unheard of a decade ago. It also when you are ready to upgrade your vehicle you can strip the vinyl and be left with the original paintwork.

UV light is extremely harsh and will fade every thing over time.

The vinyl we use for vehicle wrapping will not damage your cars paintwork. It will actually protect it your car. If however your car has been involved in an accident and has been resprayed, it may be worth asking your repairer to warrant their paint job, as a wrap will damage a respray that hasn’t been prepared properly.

We usually print on a One Way film for window applications when wrapping a vehicle. One Way film is a product that contains thousands of perforations (or Holes) through it. It has a black adhesive background which means once it has been applied you can see through it form the inside out. The white print face of the product ensures a vibrant print is held. To further enhance visibility in wet weather, we laminate our One Ways in an optically clear laminate.

Like anything your vehicle wrap will fade over time. You should expect to comfortably get 4 years in a vertical application, from your prints before there is any noticeable fading.

We provide proofs for sign off before we produce any signage, printing, stationery requirements.
