FAQ's about Vehicle Wraps and Vehicle Graphics Part 1

Vehicle wraps in Durham NC are quickly becoming an industry standard; both for advertising as well as dressing up your vehicle. From RAV4’s to race cars vinyl vehicle wraps provide the versatility of attention grabbing graphics; without the price tag of a custom paint job. Plus, the benefit of being able to peel it off when you’re ready to sell the car.

Because of the popularity of vinyl vehicle wraps in Durham NC many questions are often asked about vinyl vehicle wraps. In the next 2 articles we will answer a few of the frequently asked questions that are common about vehicle wraps.

What is a Vehicle Wrap?

Bull City Signs in Durham NC Defines a vehicle wrap in the following ways:

  • A vehicle wrap is the expressions of mindful imagination that has impacted a vehicle, dripping creativity down the sides.
  • A vehicle wrap is a blank canvas that allows you to brand your business in an eye catching, thought-provoking format; that is sure to get attention and an occasional whistle.
  • A vehicle wrap is like a warm hug on a cool day that whispers in your ear how awesome you are.

Seriously though, a vehicle wrap can either partially or totally cover the paint of your vehicle for the promotion of your business. It can also provide an aggressive graphics package for a custom vehicle look; or even just change the color of the vehicle.

How Long Will My Vehicle Wrap Last?

Vehicle wraps done by Bull City Signs in Durham NC will last approximately five years. The type of material used, use and care play heavily into this estimated figure. For example: if you have an off-road vehicle that’s been wrapped, chances are it’s not going to last for five years. This is because of dirt and debris constantly impacting the vehicle wrap. Normal use with the UV coded materials, that we prefer to use for our vehicle wraps; will naturally last longer than untreated vehicle wraps.

Can I Remove the Vehicle Wrap if I Sell My Car?

Absolutely. Although we do recommend for it to be professionally removed; a vehicle wrap essentially is a heated sticker that molds to the shape of the body of the car. If you try to remove the vinyl vehicle wrap from your car without the proper removal tools and chemicals; it will be a time-consuming and messy task.

Can You Wrap a Painted Primer Car?

Great question. Because primer is a porous by nature, the vinyl wrap does not adhere well to it. Untreated or unpainted body components such as ground effects, bumpers and other plastic parts also do not work well with vinyl vehicle wraps. While it might stick for a little while and look great; it won’t be very long before the vinyl wrap fails and begins to come off.

How Long Does it Take to Install a Vinyl Vehicle Wrap?

Partial vehicle wraps can be completed in 2 to 3 days depending on the complexity; full vehicle wraps can take up to two weeks, again depending on the complexity. Add to that design time to create the vehicle wrap custom to your vehicle’s year, make and model. With that being said: Bull City Signs in Durham NC has done quite a few vehicle wraps and can generally tell you how long it will take during the initial consultation.
