Wraps and graphics are a fantastic way to transform the look of your vehicle. Unfortunately, they don’t last forever. Everything from road debris to sunlight and even poor maintenance can affect the look and finish of vehicle graphics and wraps.
Is it high time you replaced your vehicle graphics? In this post we’ll look a six warning signs that it’s time to bring your car into the team at 3SixtyWraps for a bit of TLC and a wrap replacement.
Peeling edges: A professionally applied wrap can last for as long as five years. A poorly applied wrap might only last a matter of days or weeks before you start to see evidence of lifting and peeling edges. Make sure you get your vehicle in to see an experienced installer as soon as you start to see any lifting or peeling on your car.
Fading: When you first had your vehicle graphic or wrap installed the colours were probably vibrant and could be seen from a mile off. After a few years of constant exposure to the sun and elements on the road, you’ll start to see a degree of fading. The only way to solve this problem is to replace the affected graphic or wrap.
Scratches & scrapes: It’s virtually impossible to avoid the elements altogether. And unfortunately, the elements can inflict a bit of damage on even the most expertly applied vehicle graphic or wrap. If your wrap has been scraped one to many times by road debris and small stones over the years, you might want to consider replacing it to get it looking immaculate again.
You’re bored: With so many wrap colours and finishes to choose from, it’s hard to choose a look for your vehicle. Vehicle wraps and graphics don’t damage the surface of your car (if they are applied by certified installers) so there’s nothing to stop you from switching wraps and graphics when you’re tired of your car’s look.
Bubbles: Air bubbles are a big turn off. Not only do they look ugly, they can also pop and tear open to reveal the original paintwork underneath. If you’ve noticed air bubbles on your vehicle the only way to get rid of them is to take your car into an experienced installer.
Something has changed: Many people use their vehicles to promote their businesses. Whether you own one company car or an entire fleet, it’s important to keep your vehicle graphics and branding looking fresh. Shabby, peeling graphics look unprofessional and will project a negative image of your business.
