FAQ's about Vehicle Wraps and Vehicle Graphics Part 2

Continuing with the FAQ’s of Vehicle wraps and vehicle graphics; it is important to understand that vehicle wraps are just one of the mediums you should explore. With Vehicle wraps in Durham, NC quickly becoming an industry standard; the look and message should be carefully considered when looking into this valuable form of getting your message out.

What happens if I get into a wreck?

Hopefully you are okay and it was just a little fender bender… But once you get your car out of the body shop and the body panels have been replaced and properly painted, we can replace the areas of the vehicle wrap that were damage by replicating and installing with no problem. We keep on file the graphics that we provided for your vehicle wrap so we can duplicate and install just the pieces that are needed.

For larger paneled areas such as the side of a moving van, the entire area will have to be redone so that it blends and matches properly. As a vehicle vinyl wrap is aged by the sun the colors can take on a different shade; we will let you know prior to beginning about color differences so that you can decide how you would like to proceed.

Do the images on my vehicle wrap need to be licensed?

Simply meaning that we purchase the appropriate licenses for all the graphics that we utilize in the creation of your vehicle vinyl wrap.

How do I keep my vehicle wrap clean?

Will a vehicle wrap protect my paint?

Yes. UV coated vinyl wrap can help protect your paint from sun damage and small rocks that might ship your paint. However, vinyl wrap is not armor; so getting hit with a rock or by another car, vinyl wrap is not going to protect you in circumstances such as this.

Are there any legal restrictions for my vehicle wrap?

Other than copyright restrictions there are no current local restrictions that we have been made aware of in the Durham, NC area. While the government loves making new rules, we do have certain recommendations about the use of shiny chrome films and other designs that may create a hazard to those on the road.

We have heard hints of regulations limiting the percentage of coverage that is allowed for certain types of vehicles and restrictions on content (ergo: family-friendly), but none that have been made an official policy.

Why are there so many price differences on vehicle wraps?

While vinyl wrap is quickly becoming an industry-standard there are still many factors that come into play for the pricing of vinyl vehicle wraps. Labor and materials used are the two primary factors for accurate pricing of a vehicle vinyl wrap. One company may be cheaper than another; but, look closely at the price differences to find out why. If a price for a vinyl wrap seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Many companies are known to underbid a vehicle vinyl wrap project because of the use of substandard materials or premade graphical elements that cut down on the creation process but provide you a cookie-cutter look. Correctly installing vinyl wrap is practically an art form. It takes a steady hand and a sense of craftsmanship to get the material to probably mold and fit, especially on vehicles that have greater curvature.

For an investment that sure to last you for several years you should definitely take a few extra moments to determine the experience level and quality workmanship of the company that you’re going to use before making your final decision.
