While vehicle wraps are gaining in popularity as a way to increase brand awareness, business owners still have lots of questions about vehicle wraps and auto advertising in Missouri. In today’s blog, Missouri’s best vehicle wrap shop answers some of our most frequently asked questions about vehicle wraps:
1. What Is A Vehicle Wrap?
A “vehicle wrap” is the common term used for graphics which are applied to cars, vans, trucks, buses, boats or any other vehicle as either a form of mobile advertising or customizing a vehicle to enhance its appearance, giving it a personal flair. Vehicle wraps can be applied to the entire vehicle or just parts of the vehicle.
2. Why Should I Wrap My Vehicle?
Vehicle wraps offer 24/7 advertising for your business. They offer the greatest returns on investment than any other form of advertising, generating between 30,000 and 70,000 impressions per day, per vehicle. Unlike other forms of advertising, a vehicle wrap is a one-time investment that will pay for itself over and over for 5+ years!
3. How Long Does It Take To Wrap My Vehicle?
While installation times vary depending on the complexity of the project, a basic wrap job will take about 1-3 days. Due to the nature of the adhesive vinyl and the complex curves to which it’s applied, we build in an extra 24 hours after the application to allow for the film to fully adhere to the vehicle.
4. Does It Matter What Color My Car Is?
No matter the color of your vehicle, it can be wrapped. Our vehicle wrap films are opaque and you cannot see through it.
5. Does It Affect the Paint On My Car?
Our vehicle wrap materials are formulated with removable adhesive that does not harm the factory paint on your car, as long as it’s in good condition. In fact, many people find that our wraps act as a protective barrier, assisting in higher resale value when the wrap is removed.
6. If A Vehicle Wrap Is Damaged, Can It Be Fixed?
In most cases, if a vehicle wrap is damaged, the pieces or panels of the wrap can be replaced after the vehicle has been repaired. If the damage is contained to a certain area, you do not need to have the entire wrap redone.
7. Can Vehicle Wraps Be Washed?
Not only can vehicle wraps be washed, but they should be washed in order to keep them in tip-top shape. You want to make sure to keep dirt, grime and grease off the wrap. However, you will want to and wash your wrap instead of running it through an automatic car wash with harsh brushes, as that could damage the vinyl.
8. Can A Vehicle Wrap Be Removed?
When you want to change your wrap or sell your vehicle, the vehicle wrap can easily be removed. We recommend a professional removal, where we remove it the same way it was applied.
9. How Long Will A Vehicle Wrap Last?
Vehicle wraps can last anywhere from 3-7 years depending on how they are cared for. Wrapped vehicles that are left in the sun or subject to repeated harsh weather could start seeing some wear and tear faster than other vehicles would.
10. Do You Have A Payment Plan?
For small businesses, a vehicle wrap can be a large upfront cost. We do offer financing for our vehicle wraps at the Lake of the Ozarks.
