Vehicle Vinyl Wrap Guide

When you’re looking to upgrade or restore your car’s appearance you have two options: a brand new paint job or a vehicle wrap. Like anything in life, nothing is completely black or white and both approaches have their pros and cons but (truth be told) a vinyl vehicle wrap is usually much more affordable, quicker and longer lasting than an aftermarket paint job when you’re looking for a complete color change.

To get you started, we’ll cover the ins and outs of vehicle wraps so that you can get a better idea of what to expect when wrapping your car and some of the possible pitfalls you might encounter before you decide to lay it or spray it.

Vehicle Wraps: What Are They?

Vinyl wraps have become one of the go-to accessories for DIY car enthusiasts looking to customize their cars, trucks or SUVs without breaking the bank. Premium vinyl films like Rwraps™ and Series 1080 3M™ films are extremely durable and simple to use plus vehicle wraps give you color and finish options that paints and sprays can only dream of. And, when done right, vehicle wraps can give you a look that is indistinguishable from an OEM paint job while protecting its value in the process.

The application of vinyl to your vehicle is known as wrapping and gives you two main benefits: protection of your car’s paint job and the possibility of getting a look that paints just can’t deliver. Whether you choose 3M™ or Rwraps you can get Carbon Fiber, Brushed Metallic, Camouflage, Sticker Bomb and dozens of other patterns that would be impossible to spray on in addition to styles like Chameleon shade-shifter, Matte and Matte Metallic films too!

Not only are vehicle wraps durable but vinyl film is easy to care for as well. Just use soap and water to clean it when dirty. Additionally, because the vinyl itself is the protective coating, there is no need to apply clear coat or wax. It’s pretty resilient but if a section of your wrap gets damaged, you can replace it quickly and easily for much less than you could repair a scratch paint job.

Ways to Wrap Your Car

So what are your options for wrapping your car? Do you have to commit to wrapping the whole vehicle from bumper to bumper? Of course not. You can focus on individual panels to protect against specific dangers or to achieve a particular look. The vinyl film is applied one panel at a time, so you have complete control over how much of your car is covered.

Here’s a look at some different options you have when it comes to applying a vehicle wrap to your car:

1. Complete Vehicle Wrap

If you want absolute protection for your car’s painted surfaces, you can cover every body panel with a full wrap. This would prevent damage all the way around. You can also decide on a unique color scheme or finish to give your car a more distinctive look.

A matte finish is a popular option for sportier cars, but carbon fiber and metallic finishes can be eye-catching as well. You can also expand your options and explore complex designs with digitally printed vinyl (more on that later).

2. Partial Vehicle Wraps

Partial vehicle wraps give you the option of wrapping only certain areas of your car, truck or SUV either for cosmetic or protective reasons. You may want to wrap your side view mirrors just for the look or add the stylish, camo protection of rocker panel wraps. Partial vehicle wraps offer you both easier installation and less expense so it’s no surprise that they’re some of our best sellers.

Why Should You Wrap Your Car?

Applying a vinyl wrap to your car can be a means of protecting your investment, but it can also be an excellent way to improve the visual appearance of your vehicle. Applying a protective vinyl layer to your vehicle’s painted surfaces will help maintain its resale value and keep your car’s paint job in good condition. Road debris and UV rays in sunlight can harm your car€™s paint and accelerate the aging process. By wrapping your car with vinyl, you are combating both of these threats, and both your car and its next owner will thank you for that.

If one of your vinyl panels is damaged, you can simply replace it without worrying about the rest of the car. Vinyl doesn’t fade over time, so you won’t have to worry about mismatched body panels. A paint job provides no such convenience. If your paint job needs a repair or a refresh, you are committed to repainting the entire car, which will cost you a considerable amount of time and money.

As an added benefit, a vinyl wrap will instantly make your car look like it rolled out of the showroom. Regardless of the condition of your car’s current paint job, a vinyl wrap will make your car look brand new. Depending on your style, it could even make it look better than new. Since the demise of the infamous Chrysler PT Cruiser, we can’t think of a single car that can be ordered straight from the factory with a flame accent paint job.

If you want to create a whole new look, either with a crazy color, a different finish, or a unique design, a custom vinyl wrap is going to be much easier to apply than a custom paint job would be. Furthermore, it will be much more cost-effective, easier to maintain, easier to repair and much easier to resell.

That custom design you loved so much would undoubtedly limit the resale market. With a vinyl wrap, however, you can remove it, restore the car to its original appearance, and tap into a much larger potential group of customers.
