FAQ

What is a vehicle wrap?

A vehicle wrap consists of a design which is developed by our staff of designers, then printed on special vinyl wrap and laminated, and finally 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.

How is a vehicle wrap designed?

Our in-house staff of designers specialize in vehicle wrap design. They work with the client throughout the process to ensure that the message conveyed in the design accurately and appropriately reflects that of the company, product or person. Final proofs, mockups and explanations of the car wrap design are always reviewed prior to sending the job to print.

How are car wraps printed?

Our onsite printing department and staff ensures the accurate transfer of the images through its advanced art print server. The large format printers are fitted with state of the art ink systems insuring the best color schemes and resolution available in the car wrap industry. We have carefully chosen the media we print on, which has been time tested for use in vehicle wraps.

How do you wrap a vehicle?

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.

Where is the car wrap installation performed?

SkinzWraps® has a dedicated 4,500 sq ft installation facility in Dallas, just steps away from its headquarter office. In addition, SkinzWrap® has agreements to use similar facilities for onsite installations in our other major cities of operations. Finally, our staff of installers will travel to any location in the US, Europe and around the world.

Are car wraps applied to windows?

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.

If the company information on my vehicle wrap changes, can it be replaced?

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.

Is it possible to finance my car wrap?

Yes. Our program, [Wrap It into the Finance], will allow small businesses to finance vehicle wraps. The program is offered through the CarCareONE(sm) product from GE Consumer Finance.

Can a car wrap be removed?

Yes. The wrap can be removed. However, attempting to remove it yourself may cause damage to your paint. We suggest having SkinzWraps® de-install your vehicle wrap as our installation experts are best equipped this task.

Will the car wrap damage my paint?

No. A car wrap, when applied and removed correctly, does not damage your car’s OEM paint. In fact, it protects it.

Is there a guarantee on the vehicle wrap?

A SkinzWraps® vehicle wrap has a 3 year warranty from peeling, cracking, and fading (with proper upkeep.)

Will you pay me to drive my car with someone else’s advertising?

No. Our company designs, prints and wraps vehicles for businesses looking to advertise on their vehicles. We are not a driver – advertiser broker. (i.e. we do not find or run a database of drivers for advertisers or vise versa)

Will you wrap a leased vehicle?

Yes. Since a wrap can be removed without damaging a vehicle, there are no restrictions against wrapping a leased vehicle.

How long will a vinyl wrap last on my vehicle?

Our vinyl car 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.

How do I care for my car wrap?

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 cause no damage to your window wrap.

What’s the difference between a ½, ¾, and full wrap?

A size of the wrap (Full, ½ or ¼) simply refers to the percentage of the car that is covered by the wrap. This is also referred to as a partial vehicle wrap and a full vehicle wrap.

How long does it take to wrap a car?

Our vinyl car 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.

Do you wrap anything other than vehicles?

Yes. We have wrapped boats, jet skis, motorcycles, buildings, storefronts, tradeshow walls, appliances – we’ve even wrapped a modified Boeing 727 airplane and fighter jet for Dreamworks studios.
