Choosing the Right Vehicle Wrap Company….Choose Wisely!
Okay, you need to make a decision and choosing the right vehicle wrap company is important. You got your truck wrapped a few years ago and now you want to trade it in for another car, right? The dealership says you need to take the wrap off (even though this can easily be negotiated). Maybe you’re switching business or updating your brand, either way you’ve encountered the VEHICLE WRAP REMOVAL ZONE!! So when choosing your large format printing company, choose wisely.
So we have to back up for a second and talk just a bit about purchasing a vehicle wrap. Please understand that this pertains to all vehicle wraps such as; partial wraps, window wraps for storefronts, vehicle lettering or any type of custom graphics applied to surfaces that you don’t want to damage. You need to ask questions! Hopefully your search already brought you to an actual 3M Certified Company.
These are some questions for your choosing your vehicle wrap company:
What is the exact vehicle wrap material you will be using? Is there a matching laminate for it also?
Will there be any chemicals of any kind used on my car. This is typically called “primer” and is an adhesive promoter
What is my vehicle wrap warranty and does it come in writing?
Will there be paint damage up removal of the wrap?
Do I get a color sample?
So as you can see from the photos above this is a Dodge Sprinter that we did a vehicle wrap removal on that had lots of damage under the wrap film. The company prior to us used massive amounts of 3M Primer 94 which is an adhesive promoter to be using sparingly and only when needed. This vehicle had it all over and it made the paint unstable and it peeled while we removed the wrap. This important thing to remember here is to always be an informed buy when it comes to custom graphics. Not all companies are created equal. You will see here on the Brands Imaging website we post many pictures of actual graphic installations in progress to give our customers a real snap shop on how a large format printing company really works and what goes into installing these wraps.
The customer from this job did not inquire heavily enough with their large format printing company and unfortunately paid the price. This vehicle color was off and there was unfortunately a lot of damage to vehicle during the process.
After completing the removal and some repairs we provided our customers with a written 3M Certified warranty, color samples and all other information about this vehicle wrap. The Sprinter finished wrap images are here…. Visit our portfolio to see more of our finished work.
