Q: WHAT IS A VEHICLE WRAP?
A: A vehicle wrap consists of a design which is developed by our staff of designers then printed on special vinyl wrap and laminated. Lastly, it is installed or “wrapped” on a vehicle. The wrap is applied directly to the vehicle. The application is so precise it is often mistaken for a custom paint job.
Q: HOW IS A WRAP DESIGNED?
A: Our in-house staff of designers specializes in vehicle wrap design. They work with the client throughout the process to make sure that the message conveyed in the design accurately and appropriately reflects that of the company, product, or person. Final proofs, mockups, and explanations are always reviewed prior to sending the job to print.
Q: HOW IS A WRAP PRINTED?
A: Our onsite printing department and staff ensure the accurate transfer of the images through the advanced art print server. The large format printers are fitted with state of the art ink systems to produce the best color schemes and resolution available in the industry. We have carefully chosen the media we print on, which has been time tested for use in vehicle wraps.
Q: HOW DO YOU WRAP A VEHICLE?
A: Our installers are put through a rigorous apprentice program before they are given the title of expert installer. Once they have reached this level, they are capable of handling the most intricate design wrap installations. The vinyl material is accurately laid out and applied to the vehicle – the actual process is extremely precise, requires a lot of experience, and is difficult to explain in writing.
Q: ARE CAR WRAPS APPLIED TO WINDOWS?
A: Yes, but only rear side and rear windows. Window wraps are printed on a special perforated vinyl that allows the driver to see through the rear and side rear windows.
Q: WHAT IF THE COMPANY INFORMATION ON MY WRAP CHANGES? CAN IT BE REPLACED?
A: Yes. Graphics, logos, and phone numbers (or any part of the design) can be changed, reprinted, and re-installed as overlays on the car wrap.
Q: CAN A WRAP BE REMOVED?
A: Yes. The wrap can be removed. However, attempting to remove it yourself may cause damage to your paint. We suggest having Caliber Wraps™ de-install your vehicle wrap as our installation experts are best equipped for this task.
Q: WILL THE WRAP DAMAGE MY PAINT?
A: No. When applied and removed correctly, a car wrap does not damage your car’s OEM paint. In fact, it protects it.
Q: IS THERE A WARRANTY ON THE WRAP?
A: There is a Limited Warranty on manufacturer’s materials against fading, cracking, or peeling. Materials designed for short term usage are durable for up to 18 months while materials selected for longer term usage carry a warranty of 5 years.
Q: WILL YOU WRAP A LEASED VEHICLE?
A: Yes. Since a wrap can be removed without damaging a vehicle, there are no restrictions against wrapping a leased vehicle.
Q: HOW LONG WILL A WRAP LAST ON MY VEHICLE?
A: Our wraps will normally outlast the vehicle. You can expect your wrap to last 5 years or longer as long as you’re careful about high-pressure washing.
Q: HOW DO I CARE FOR MY WRAP?
A: It is best to hand wash your wrapped vehicle. In general, avoid power washing, and do not use an ice-scraper. Brushing windows and the use of a rear defroster will not cause damage to your window wrap.
Q: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A ½, ¾, AND FULL WRAP?
A: The size of the wrap (e.g., full, ½, or ¼) simply refers to the percentage of the car that is covered by the wrap. We can also wrap just the doors if you are not ready for a full wrap.
Q: DO YOU PROVIDE AN ALTERNATIVE TO WRAPPING VEHICLES THAT STILL CREATES AN EFFECTIVE MARKETING IMPACT?
A: Yes. We offer vinyl lettering on hoods, sides, and tailgates that may fit your budget. We can also provide decals, magnetic signs for doors, bumper stickers, and window decals to convey your company’s contact information.
Q: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WRAP A VEHICLE?
A: Our full wraps are typically completed in 1-2 days depending on the size of the vehicle and intricacy of the wrap. Time estimates are given to our customers prior to beginning the installation process.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR PREFERRED PROCESS FOR ARTWORK?
A: We prefer to have you provide us with artwork, but our graphic designers are available to design a wrap that meets your requirements and makes certain your message will be visibly appealing and have a high impact.
Q: WHAT TYPES OF VEHICLES DO YOU WRAP?
A: If it moves, we can usually wrap it! This includes all types of vehicles: cars, vans, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, trailers, and even boats. If you’re not sure about your vehicle, then please contact us today to find out if we can wrap it.
Q: HOW MUCH DOES A VEHICLE WRAP COST?
A: There are several factors that determine the cost of a wrap. Please contact us today for an accurate quote.
Q: HOW SOON CAN YOU WRAP MY VEHICLE?
A: We can normally have the wrap installed within a week after receiving your final approval on the art proof.
