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.
