The art of wrapping involves a large, 5-foot wide sheet of “sticker,” and applying it by hand to the outside of the car. This “sticker” is applied with heat, by hand or with a squeegee and adhered to the top of your paint.
Vinyl wrap acts as a protectant to road debris, sun, water and other damaging effects of the environment. It also changes the color of your car with a quicker turn around time than paint. It is removable at anytime. And the colors you can pick from are endless.
While there aren’t many downsides, nothing in life is perfect. So two things about Vinyl Wrapping that you should know. 1) It can’t cover every single area where paint is such as certain parts of the door, trunk area or undercarriage. 2) It doesn’t last forever. Your typical life expectancy is 4-6 years.
It doesn’t hurt the car, it protects it. And when you’re ready to remove it, simply allow the car to soak in the sun or heat it up indoors and peel away. In most cases, it will come right off without leaving a single spec of glue or residue behind, revealing your paint the last time you saw it before it was wrapped.
Yes and no. If the clear coat is coming off and or if the car has been poorly repainted before, it will be important for you to have the car sanded down and prepped for vinyl. It is NOT recommended to get a wrap to cover body imperfections as the cleanliness of the wrap will in fact SHOWCASE damage to the car.
Vinyl wraps from some shops around the world go as high as $12,000. Our prices range from $2800 to $5000.
Not long at all. While a typical paint job will take anywhere from 2 weeks to a month (between prep and body work), vinyl wrapping is completed within 1 week and sometimes, as little as 2 days. Please send us an eMail for an accurate Quote and Estimate on the completion time.

NO! It’s not good for the vinyl to be hit with all sorts of dirty scrubbing machines and then get rubbed down with cheap rags to dry off. Try and take care of the car yourself or have it hand washed. If you must go through a car wash, use local places that know how to manage wraps. If you’re local, we recommend V.R. Brothers in Stamford CT.
There are no laws against vinyl wrapping your car as it is considered a temporary upgrade to a car. No need to change anything on your paperwork about the color of the car. Enjoy!
