Q'sThis is a great opportunity to read through some of the most frequently asked questions raised within the industry and about our main services, materials and the products offered here at Wraptism. The questions cover automotive, commercial, preporation, application, graphics, wraps, design and print. Below are some of the most common ones, take a read through before coming to see us.

A vehicle wrap is the process of covering/wrpping a vehicle in a very thin, malleable, adhesive coloured or textered vinyl. Technique previously most commonly used for commercial vehicles, to utilise the vehicle for branding and advertising purposes. Vehicle wrapping is increasingly popular now too for privately owned vehicles for colour change wrap individualisation.
Our automotive premium wrap films are manufactured and designed to be removable. If your vehicle has original OEM paint, then installing and removing your vehicle wrap should not damage your paintwork. Problems, however, can arise if your vehicle has had aftermarket paint or repairs as this may not be sufficiently bonded to the bodywork of the vehicle. You must bear this in mind if you know your vehicle has had any repairs or resprayed paintwork.

Full vehicle wraps are a great choice for any new car, van or commercial vehicle. With added commercial benefits, a vinyl wrap also provides a durable layer of protection to your vehicle’s bodywork at the same time!
Our vinyl wraps and vehicle graphics can be removed easily, providing the correct techniques and equipment are used. You may wish to do this if you are selling your vehicle or returning it to the lease company. You may want to change the colour of your car or commercial vehicle or even update it to your latest advertising campaign. Instructions for this procedure can be offered upon request.
Absolutely, our specialist designers work with clients throughout the wrapping process. This means that if a client has a design in mind, we are more than happy to implement it. On the other hand, we’re more than happy to work with a few ideas or concepts.
It is often the case that vehicles enjoy part wraps, both on personal and commercial vehicles.
This depends on a number of factors. For example, what vehicle is receiving the wrap, what type of film is being applied and the coverage option chosen. Typically an exterior colour change wrap takes between three to five days & a full-colour change wrap five to seven days based on two installers.

The client will always be given an estimated timeframe for how long a wrap will take before the wrap takes place.
If looked after carefully, a good wrap can last for around five to seven years.

We can offer advice on how to look after a vehicle wrap during the consultation process.
Anyone who has a vehicle wrap should inform their insurance company of such changes, even if a vehicle has received a part wrap. It may benefit you should you be required to claim for repairs in the event of an accident.
As with insurance companies, the Transport Services may also needs to be informed. This is usually a very quick process that involves a phone call and possibly the completion of a form.

You maybe be required to select the most appropriate colour from thier list.
It is important that we receive the vehicle in the best possible condition before it is brought to us. If a vehicle arrives in poor or dirty condition it will effect the timescale quoted and may require additional prep work which could lead to additional costs.
Due to the fact that vehicle wrapping can last for so long, it is more cost effective than other labour-intensive painting options.

What’s more, our top glabal brands of vinyl can protect a vehicle’s body for this entire period, meaning that chips and scratches can be totally avoided, even up to seven years down the line.

Additionally, if you decide to change your marketing or fleet design, we can get to work unwrapping a vehicle and applying new designs in no time.
If you’re not after a full vehicle wrap, we also offer beautiful machine cut vinyl graphics, decals and stickers using the very best global manufactured vinyls.

Decals & Stickers
Although you may not realise it, signwriting is a skilled, cherished and often undervalued art form that has helped to advertise products and businesses for thousands of years – far removed from the van signwriting of today.

But due to advances in technology, we can now design, print and apply graphics and vehicle wraps in a matter of hours, but of course, this hasn’t always been the case.
