The Process of Wrapping Vehicles
Written by Ordant on February 27, 2015

Eye-catching graphics make vehicle wraps a powerful marketing tool. If you are considering adding vehicle wraps to your list of products, Ordant can help. Our cutting-edge print MIS software for vehicles includes the capability of price estimating for almost all major make/models. It also features an intuitive interface, various modules customizable to your print business, internet-based convenience, and web-to-print storefronts. The process of wrapping vehicles requires patience and precision. But converting a conventional car or truck into a moving billboard is a burgeoning aspect of the print industry that can be lucrative. Here’s look at how vehicle wrapping works and how we make it work for you:

  • Graphics are computer-generated at a scale. Once the digital files are approved by the client, they are printed on self adhesive vinyl via a large format printer. The number of vinyl panels required depends on the size of the vehicle and the extent of the wrap. A partial wrap requires fewer panels. Minimizing material waste is critical for a cost effective (and profitable) vehicle wrap shop.
  • The vehicle is prepared with a thorough cleaning. Soap residue may prevent wrap panels from sticking. Side mirrors, handles, and raised metal logos may be removed and replaced once wrapping is complete.
  • Application of the vehicle’s vinyl sheets is painstaking. The actual wrapping is so exacting, the job has become a certified profession. Adhering each panel to the vehicle body, wrappers must take care to line up images and lettering, and make sure seams are undetectable. Rear windows are wrapped with a perforated panel that can be seen through from the inside of the vehicle. Wrapping a large vehicle such as a van can take few days.
