You probably have seen them on some sports cars. You may have caught a glimpse of a vehicle with one driving through town. You may even know someone who has one. Vehicle wraps are a trendy new way to give a vehicle a brand new look, but a lot of people still don't know a great deal about them. If you are considering these kinds of vehicle graphics for your ride, you definitely need to know the facts. Here is a look at some of the common misconceptions about vehicle wraps and the real truths you need to know.
1. Vehicle wraps are a permanent change to the appearance of your vehicle.
Vehicle wraps are not a permanent change. They are a temporary way to change the outer appearance of your vehicle. Even though a wrap essentially covers the entire vehicle body, it can later be removed. This is why vehicle wraps are such a common solution for those who use their vehicle for business purposes. If the owner of the vehicle ever changes their business model, they can easily have the wrap removed are change the wrap for a new look. Plus, the wrap can be removed before the vehicle is sold.
2. Vehicle wraps damage your paint when you take them off.
Vehicle wraps are applied with a durable adhesive backing that adheres to the surface of the vehicle. When it is time for the wrap to be removed, heat is used to melt down the adhesive so the wrap can be peeled away in sections. Once the wrap itself is removed, any remaining adhesive residue is cleaned off with a special solution that is gentle on the car's paint. Therefore, a vehicle wrap will not damage the paint and can be reapplied or taken off whenever you like.
3. Vehicle wraps don't work for all car models.
It is a common assumption that vehicle wraps must work only on newer vehicle models because this is a fairly new concept. However, that is not the case at all. In fact, vehicle wraps tend to work perfectly fine on just about any type of car model you can think of, and they are even used on other vehicles like motorcycles food trucks and RVs. Because the wraps are custom designed to fit the shape of a specific vehicle, there really is no limit to what type of vehicle a wrap can be applied to.
