Although vehicle wraps are used in the main for advertising and promotion, some use them just to add style to a vehicle.

Recent advancements in vinyl development have led to new types of vinyls specifically for doing wraps, such as vinyls that feature air channels to prevent bubbles, and microscopic glass beads that prevent the adhesive from taking hold until squeegeed down. This feature allows the material to be lifted and reapplied as needed during the wrapping process, without compromising the longevity of the wrap. Vinyl is heated with a heat gun or torch to mold around objects.
Design For Vehicles
Setting up art for a vehicle graphic one has to be aware of the amount of play or leeway that has to be available to the applicator to get into every groove and curve or a vehicle.
Graphic templates are available for purchase on the internet for every vehicle imaginable.
In most cases the entire graphic is printed and applied like wallpaper in panels. It is better though when possible to separate the graphics from the text, printing the text as diecut lettering. This gives greater freedom to the applicator for positioning text so it is not obscured or compromised by elements such as doors or handles.products
