Car Wrap FAQ

How long will you need my vehicle? 2017-09-25T22:31:44+00:00

Wraps, like quality bodywork, take time. Factors such as complexity of the wrap, vehicle body style, and size of the vehicle all play into how long we will need your vehicle. That said a typical full wrap takes about 1.5 days to install. In most cases it is best to plan on leaving your vehicle overnight, allowing us to take a close look at it and ensure it passes our quality inspection.

What questions should I ask when getting a quote on a wrap? 2017-09-25T22:33:49+00:00

The Sign Dude recognizes that your vehicle is an extremely important asset and that making a decision to design and install this type of advertising is an investment. That said, we encourage you to consider your options carefully.  So here are some questions we suggest you ask when researching wrap companies:

  • DO YOU REMOVE AND REPLACE ALL THE EXTERNAL TRIM WORK ON THE VEHICLE WHEN YOU PERFORM A WRAP OR JUST “CUT AROUND IT”?
  • DO YOU USE ONLY TOP QUALITY, PROFESSIONAL WRAP PRODUCTS (SUCH AS AVERY DENNISON AND/OR 3M)?
  • DO YOU USE LATEX INKS?
  • ARE YOUR INSTALLERS PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED BY OTHER WELL-KNOWN WRAP INSTALLERS?
  • DOES YOUR COMPANY PERFORM ALL SERVICES ON-SITE IN A CLIMATE CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT?
  • DOES YOUR COMPANY EMPLOY TALENTED GRAPHIC ARTISTS OR IS THIS WORK “FARMED OUT” TO CONTRACTORS?
  • DO YOU PROVIDE TRULY CUSTOM DESIGNS? OR DO YOU USE GENERIC TEMPLATES AND FONTS WHICH ARE ONLY CUSTOM IN THAT YOU ADD OUR COMPANY NAME?
  • DO YOU HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO PROVIDE DETAILED CUSTOM GRAPHICS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR ALL MAKES AND MODELS OF CARS, TRUCKS, VANS, TRAILERS, BOATS, LIGHT AIRCRAFT, AND SIGNAGE?
  • ARE YOUR COMMERCIAL-WRAP CUSTOMERS RECOGNIZABLE NAMES AND BRANDS? CAN YOU SHOW ME YOUR PORTFOLIO AND/OR A WRAP SIMILAR TO WHAT I AM REQUESTING?
  • HOW LONG MUST YOU KEEP MY VEHICLE?
  • ARE YOU BONDED AND INSURED?

Vehicle wraps are the future of advertising and are only growing in popularity as time goes by. Since the world is not likely to slow down, vehicle wraps will pick up speed – so it’s wise to keep up with your competition, or beat them to the punch.

 

Can you wrap a boat? 2017-09-25T22:34:27+00:00
Absolutely! If it rolls or floats, we can wrap it! We also install graphics and textured vinyls on walls and windows. Jet-skis, fiberglass boats, aluminum fishing boats (and thanks to Pavati now aluminum surf boats) if it has a smooth surface we can wrap it!
Does The Sign Dude Partner with Other Wrap Companies? 2017-09-25T22:35:18+00:00

Yes, we have installed wraps for hundreds of other companies, providing a local install option in the Southern Oregon area, as well as provided layout, design and production services for national brands while sourcing local installers in each area. We’re your commercial vehicle wrap experts let us know what you need and we’ll find a solution.

Can I finance my wrap? 2017-09-17T15:38:01+00:00

Yes, you can finance your wrap through most dealerships at the time of purchasing a vehicle. The Sign Dude does offer in-house financing for businesses upon approval. Design and Color Proofing of the wrap can be put into motion as soon as you put a deposit down of $150. And don’t forget – commercial wraps (half and full) can qualify as a deductible advertising expense on your taxes.

Is design included in my wrap? 2017-09-17T15:35:02+00:00
Yes. We can help you with the entire process and your quote includes everything – design, print, lamination and installation. The only time there will be additional fees for design is when revisions extend past three rounds of revisions. Your project coordinator can help you with that.
Can you wrap my bumper? 2017-09-25T22:36:52+00:00
A painted plastic bumper can be wrapped without any problems. In the case of fiberglass or chrome bumpers, application of vinyl on these areas is not recommended or guaranteed to adhere for the duration of the life of the wrap.
Can you wrap my rims? 2017-09-17T15:32:11+00:00
YES, In some cases they can be wrapped, but there will be no warranty.
Can you wrap my roof? 2017-09-25T22:37:47+00:00
On most car full wraps the roof is included. Generally, roofs are not wrapped on vans, trucks or SUVs, unless it is requested by the customer. Horizontal surfaces are the first area to be impacted by the environment, and because of the lack of maintenance, these areas receive we recommend not doing them unless needed.
It looks like my window is covered, will I be able to see through it? 2017-09-25T22:38:23+00:00
Yes, the window graphics are printed on a perforated vinyl that allows you to see through the rear and side rear windows. Perforated vinyl is not a long-term solution though, and will generally need to be replaced in about a year.
Does it matter what color my vehicle is now? 2017-09-17T15:28:10+00:00
No, a car wrap is not translucent; you cannot see through it.
How long does a wrap last? 2017-09-25T22:39:27+00:00

A wrap that is taken care of well can last up to seven years. However, most people either want to change up their graphics/color or, due to lack of cleaning or care, see fading or cracking before the seventh year. In our experience, we expect a lifetime of about 5-7 years for color change films (Avery Dennison, 3M, etc) and about 5 years for digitally printed wraps. We offer a limited 4-year warranty covering your wrap materials and installation.

Is a wrap safe for the paint on my vehicle? 2017-09-25T22:40:26+00:00
We wrap with Avery Dennison and 3M car wrap materials (unless otherwise requested) which are formulated with removable adhesive that does not harm your car’s paint. In fact, the vinyl will actually protect your paint. If high-quality materials are used and the vinyl is installed correctly (without the use of adhesive promoters), your paint will look just the same as it did the day your wrap was put on. This leads to higher resale costs in the future and a longer life for your vehicle’s surface in general. Of course, you still must care for your wrap just like you would your paint.
How effective is a wrap for advertising? 2017-09-25T22:41:38+00:00

What is a Wrap? 2017-09-25T22:42:21+00:00
Vehicle wraps can take many shapes, colors, and sizes. A full wrap covers the entire surface of the car or vehicle. A partial wrap from The Sign Dude covers only a specific portion of the vehicle and uses the vehicle’s paint scheme as the backdrop for the full design. Vehicle wraps are done with vinyl materials (think of it as a large decal) that conform to the shape of your vehicle. They can be done in solid colors as “paint replacement” or can have digitally printed designs on the vinyl to really make your vehicle stand out.
