It’s always interesting to see people’s reactions when you tell them about our business ‘car wraps‘. Inevitably they have never heard of it and are amazed there is even a market to wrap people’s cars in a different color.
Some of the reactions I have experienced when I’ve explained to people about what a car wrap is has been ’Wow! so you can cling vinyl film to my car?’ or ‘You mean you can wallpaper my car with graphics?’
Although our business started by wrapping commercial vehicles which has been around for almost three decades in the last few years the consumer car wrap market has cottoned on to the car wrapping concept.
There are many different reasons people wrap their cars:-
- cars wraps are used to update their color rather than buying a new car
- protect the paintwork – we wrap brand new cars and second hand cars for this reason
- to customize the car – matt black roof, carbon fiber wing mirrors
And so the list goes on
So, what is a car wrap?
By applying large panels of vinyl to your car you can change its color to create a totally new and refreshed look. The vinyl completely covers the paintwork, protecting it from stone chips and minor abrasions caused through general wear and tear. If any section is repaired or replaced due to accident damage, they can always be individually re-wrapped at short notice.
What colors and designs are there?
There are many effects and colors, ranging from the normal colors to the more extreme and eye catching. Carbon fiber, matt black and chrome the choice is yours.
It’s worth noting a car wrap isn’t just for high end sports cars, many people wrap their family cars too!
