Will a Wrap Hide any Dings or Dents?

One of the most common questions we get in regards to vehicle wraps is around how well it can hide dents and dings. Sadly, the answer most folks want to hear is a resounding YES! But the truth of the matter is a vehicle wrap will not be a good method to hide any dents or dings on your vehicle. In some instances it can work, it others it will do quite the opposite. Here is more.

Usually, a Vehicle Wrap is going to Highlight Any Dents.

With a tired, older vehicle, scratches dents and dings will be acceptable because the rest of the vehicle looks older. When you wrap a vehicle, and give it basically a brand new exterior, all the little dings are less ‘hidden’ with the entire look of the vehicle. That said, as we’ve mentioned above, if it’s only a couple spots it won’t be the end of the world. Like one of our wrap specialists so perfectly put it: if you’ve been driving it this long and it doesn’t bother you, wrapping it won’t change that.

That Said, a Vehicle Wrap Can Help Hide a Dent.

First off, yes a wrap will cover the dents. But it will not make those imperfections go away. This is because a wrap follows the contour of the vehicle. That said, if you have a single spot on your vehicle which has a couple small dents, we could mask the appearance of those dents with some smart design.

A wrap with a lot of busy elements (see picture below) will be able to create an illusion that helps mask the look of the dent. Another method is by using less glossy materials in the wrap itself. Matte vinyl and matte over-laminate will not reflect as much light; and it is the light reflection which highlights the dent’s contours. So less gloss will me less reflection coming from the dents.

Why a Vehicle Wrap Won’t Hide a Dent or Ding.

The material used in a vehicle wrap is going to be applied directly to the entire surface of your vehicle. It is a thin material which follows all the contours of your vehicle—including any dents or dings. So while it will be applied on top of the dent, it will not make it any less of a dent. It’s important to note, you want this to happen. This is because any vehicle wrap material which does not make direct contact can lead to issues of tearing, bubbling, and more.

Will a Wrap Cover any Scratches or Paint Chips?

Along the same lines as above, a vehicle wrap will follow the contours of any scratch on your vehicle. Small scratches will be shallow enough though that a new wrap will provide an obvious improvement to the look. Additionally, a vehicle wrap will be covering the scratch up so any potential future issues from rust will be completely solved. Along these lines though, any sharp edges (which could cut the vinyl) need to be repaired before a wrap is applied.

Get Any Imperfections Fixed Before Wrapping your Vehicle

Small dents in your vehicle can usually be popped out fairly easily. More difficult dents are also going to be the ones which are more visible before and after a wrap is applied. If you can, try and get as much of your vehicle fixed and repaired before wrapping it. That is, if these dents and things bother you.

Similarly, and share edges, rust spots, or chipping paint will definitely need to be repaired. A vehicle wrap applies directly to the exterior surfaces of a vehicle. If that surface is sharp it can rip the wrap. If that surface is peeling or flaking off, the wrap itself will have a tough time of staying adhered to the vehicle itself.

Promote Company Culture With Graphics

Syndicated by The Wrap Shop Co, Memphis, Tennessee

Companies are deciding to come back to the office at a snail’s pace in 2021. With empty offices all across America, small business owners are considering ways to make use of this time to update their space. Many are considering long-term investments in graphics to expand their brand identity and show off company culture.

why vinyl wall murals are better than paint

What is company culture?

Company culture is a concept all businesses strive to obtain and project. But, what exactly is Company Culture?

A company’s culture encompasses their shared goals, values, and general attitude about how they go about business. It’s the way people feel about the work they do and the values they believe in. It’s also where they see the company going and what they will do in order to get there.

The Benefits of Defining (and displaying) Company Culture

Companies who know their culture have one thing in common: a strong brand identity. They know who they are and who they want to be. Additionally, they know how best to hire the right people for your company’s future. Here are some of the benefits of a defined company culture:

  1. Employee Retention. Employees are much happier when their personality aligns with a company’s culture. They tend to stay longer and will generally have a better and more productive workday.
  2. Increased Efficiency. Companies with a strong, visual brand identity tend to see higher levels of efficiency. Everyone knows what is expected of them.
  3. Boosted Teamwork. When everyone is working towards the same goal, teamwork is just easier. Then when those goals are visible accessible we see more comradery within departments and teams.
  4. Improved Brand Imagery. When you invite clients into your newly renovated space, they will know you are a serious organization! As your brand voice and brand values will be fully displayed!

Ways to Showcase Your Company Culture

Looking for some good ways to visually show your company’s culture? For those companies who understand their values well enough here are some ways you can effectively express them:

Wall Wraps. Upgrade your space with wall graphics that showcase and support your company’s culture. Most of our customers will put up their core values or a company slogan a couple places throughout their building.

Floor Graphics. Many of our customers never even knew floor graphics existed or were so durable and lasting. The use of floor graphics is a great way to add a touch of your branding to wayfinding within your space.

Window Graphics. Where interior wall graphics work great indoors, window graphics will help you extend you brand outside. In fact, you can use these indoors as well on things like conference room glass!

Building Graphics. The newcomer to the graphics space is building wraps or building graphics. Not exactly ‘new’ but more so being adopted more by busines

Will a Wrap Completely Cover the Existing Color of My Vehicle?

Syndicated by The Wrap Shop Co, Memphis, Tennessee

Syndicated by One Source Media, Long Island City, New York

When it comes to vehicle wrapping, this question about coverage is very common. After all, this helps people create a good mental picture of the final product. So, will a wrap completely cover the existing color of your vehicle? Yes and no. We will wrap almost the entire vehicle, but there are some areas of a vehicle which simply do not make sense to wrap.

Why Would a Wrap Not Completely Cover my Vehicle?

First off, at the end of the day, we could wrap the entire surface of your vehicle. Most every shop has this ability. Common practice is to wrap about 98% of the vehicle and skip some troublesome areas. These areas include parts like hinges which wraps will not adhere well to or areas which require us to remove parts of the vehicle.

Can I Still Get my Vehicle Completely Covered?

Yes, you can. Here’s the thing though; it’s going to cost more and usually leads to some part of the wrap failing. Usually, once we explain this to our customers, we never have anyone tell us to wrap it anyways. If we were to wrap these things, it would take the project a lot longer—which means the project will cost more—and it can lead to pieces of the wrap prematurely failing.

Advertising Wraps vs Color Changes

It is also important to note that what we’re talking about here applies mostly to advertising wraps. What is the difference between an advertising wrap and a color change wrap? An advertising wrap is a wrap a business owner gets for their vehicle. Commonly, their goals are longevity, quality, and affordability. So not wrapping smaller areas like—door jams or right up against hinges—is generally not a big deal. With a color change wrap, those areas would be covered as that’s the installation is about aesthetics first.

What is a Reasonable Amount of Coverage for a Vehicle Wrap?

We commonly tell people 98% of your vehicle will be covered. Really, the amount of your vehicle which isn’t going to be covered is so small it’s hard to even notice. In fact, the vehicle wrap’s design itself commonly incorporates these areas into the design—so it is really hard to notice. We simply want to just be fully transparent with our clients so their every expectation is met.

Audi RS7 Dragon Wrap Entry | Avery and 3M Vinyl Wraps | Custom Vehicle Wrap Designs from #Baltimore

Syndicated by The Wrap Shop Co, Memphis, Tennessee8483 views   139 likes   7 dislikes  

Channel: AP Tinting & Graphics  

Chris Fong, of AP Corp, talks about our 2019 USSC Sign Exchange Show entry. Our entry was code-named the Chinese Dragon Wrap and was installed on a 2015 Audi RS7 APR Stage 2. Below we detail the installed of this one-of-a-kind Audi RS7 vinyl wraps which includes a variety of unique elements including reflective vinyl, 3M DI-NOC, and textured underlays.

On the hood, the first thing we did on the car is the embossing dragon scale texture. Underneath of this entire film is a layer of vinyl we machine cut, or plotted, in a dragon scale pattern. We installed this pattern as a base layer or underlay to give the layer above a unique textured look and feel. We then laid our second layer of vinyl over top of the dragon scale pattern. The layer over top is an avery blue marble vinyl finish. Lastly, in the hood area, we decided to bring along some Avery gold chrome as well because we knew we wanted to do some accents which ended up being used on the lower hood area.

A closer look at the wrap will also reveal we overlaid the vinyl vehicle wrap with 3M gold dust sparkle. So the next thing we did was overlay a 3rd layer using 3M reflective 780 vinyl. This reflective vehicle vinyl wrap is essentially what you see on emergency vehicles at night. Your headlights hit this reflective vinyl wrap and it really makes the design really pop.

The final piece of vinyl we put on the audi rs7 dragon wrap is something that normally doesn't go on a vehicle. This is an architectural film sold by 3m, it's official names is 3M DI-NOC architectural film. You usually see this film when someone refinishes their cabinets, architectural elements, desks, etc. in a building. Here, we used it to create the look of wooden rocker panels, wood chrome delete, wood door handle accents, and wooden rims. 3M DI-NOC is such a versatile material it can be used in a variety of applications when it comes to wood vehicle wraps.
