A car wrap is a fairly new customization technique for vehicles where sheets of vinyl are applied to the painted surfaces of the car.
In the past, it was used primarily for commercial vehicles as a way to advertise the company’s logo and services. Today, however, car wrapping is used in a variety of situations and has become increasingly popular in the consumer market as an alternative to traditional paint and the more recent plasti-dip or liquid wrap products.
While car wrapping is still a popular choice for businesses, more and more consumers are choosing car wrapping as an affordable, reversible, and relatively easy way to customize and change the color of their vehicle.

There are plenty of reasons for wanting a car wrap. It’s commonly used for advertising, as a custom wrap can display your business’s logo, contact details and graphics as you drive around.
Car wrapping can also just be used to personalise or freshen the appearance of a car. Often, a vinyl wrap proves cheaper than re-spraying a car. You can also experiment with different patterns and designs for a unique look
And 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.
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 cars paint and accelerate the ageing 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.
Wrapping your car will provide many benefits for you and your vehicle.
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.
