Three Secrets to a Flawless Car Wrap

Thanks to some incredible advancements in car wrapping technology in recent years (if you haven’t seen 3Ms latest ‘colour flip’ options yet, you need to check them out), custom car graphics have become a popular choice for people who want their vehicles to stand out from the crowd.

And it’s easy to see why. Durable, long-lasting and removable, car wraps allow us to add incredibly detailed designs – and even advertisements – to our vehicles, without the worry that they’ll damage the paintwork underneath or affect the car’s value in the future.

Achieving a picture-perfect car wrap application isn’t a case of peeling back a plastic backing sheet and smoothing it on. If you want your car wrap to look immaculate and be free from bubbles, creases and dirt, you’ll need to look for a company that knows what it takes to achieve the perfect finish. In this post, we’ll run through three industry secrets to achieving a flawless car wrap every time.

1: Materials

If you want a car wrap that will last, you need to use the best possible materials for the job. It doesn’t matter if the company installing your wrap is the best in the world, without the right materials, the wrap won’t have what it takes to handle the wear and tear of everyday use.

With both high and low quality vinyl manufacturers out there, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the amount of options available to you when you’re researching costs. But, before you opt for the cheapest provider, it’s worth remembering that when it comes to car wraps, you really do get what you pay for. And if you want your wrap to last (and you expect a flawless finish for up to five years) you should make sure you go for the company that uses the best quality materials.

2: Design

Getting a wrap design to fit a car perfectly is impossible without the right tools. Each vehicle model has its own unique curves and angles, so your car wrap designer will have to have access to the latest car templates and design technology to ensure the finished wrap looks flawless.

If you want a custom car wrap, look for a company that will take you through all of your design options and listen to what you want to achieve. The best in the business aren’t afraid of taking on a challenging design – no matter how quirky or detailed.

3: Application

The installation process of your custom car wrap is just as crucial as using the right materials and getting the design spot-on – and it isn’t easy.

It takes years of experience to learn how to properly apply custom car wraps. From ensuring a completely clean and dust-free environment to prevent any little nasties finding their way under a freshly applied wrap, to knowing how to trim and tuck any excess material so that the finished result looks perfect – flawless car wrap installation takes time, preparation and knowledge of a wide range of application techniques.
