Will a Wrap Hide any Dings or Dents?

Syndicated by The Wrap Shop Co, Memphis, Tennessee

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.

GRAPHIC DESIGN: Applying Comicbook Artwork onto a Car (WHAT ALL DESIGNERS NEED TO KNOW!)// In this video I’m going to be showcasing a vehicle wrap where I collaborate with an amazing Marvel comicbook artist, Tyler Kirkham. A lot of artists don’t know how to put their artwork onto a car, and they need help to adapt their artwork onto a vehicle.

I dive into the struggles of what I faced as a designer and how I solved issues that came up for this SEMA project. We take previously made artwork and I show you the entire process on how I made Tyler’s work come to life on this car.

I got my 2016 Toyota Tacoma wrapped in Multicam Black 3M vinyl. This is official Multicam Black vinyl at 500% scale. It looks cool, it serves a purpose, and it's a great learning experience that I can share with you guys. I've never had a vehicle wrapped before, so I'll be learning as I go, seeing how far I can push it, seeing how resilient the wrap is to the rigors of offroad and daily use. So far so good, but I'll definitely be putting the truck wrap to the test, so stay tuned for my future thoughts!

AP Corp Donates Vehicle Wrap to MAGIC’s Autonomous Corridor Project in Westminster, MD

Syndicated by The Wrap Shop Co, Memphis, Tennessee

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

Downtown Westminster, MD was bustling Friday afternoon during the kick-off of phase 1 of MAGIC’s Autonomous Corridor Project. MAGIC, which stands for Mid-Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory, is working to improve transportation in downtown Westminster, MD with this forward-thinking project.

To help ensure the project’s success, many area businesses are donating their expertise, time, and efforts—AP Corp included!

The Autonomous Corridor Project

According to Kelly Schulz, secretary of Maryland Department of Commerce, the Autonomous Corridor Project will, “increase equity and expand opportunity for the people of Westminster and beyond.” Kelly went on to elaborate, “This has the potential to create a more connected community, a more walkable community, and to spur economic growth.” With all the strategically planned stops on this corridor, this project absolutely has this potential and then some!

Friday’s Ribbon Cutting Event

As shown in the video above, the ribbon cutting event was attended by a long list of Carroll County’s biggest names in technology. We saw drones, a library robot that helps folks find their books, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and their remote-controlled robots, and the Olli autonomous vehicle built by Local Motors. It was a great showing for the City of Westminster!

The Autonomous Vehicle

An autonomous vehicle is a self-driving vehicle. Currently, the ones which could be used in this project are like a small bus. The main benefit of this size of vehicle is it will offer extreme versatility and agility within the Westminster, MD urban city center, neighborhoods, and campuses. Phase 2 of the project is when we will most likely learn more about the exact vehicle selected for use.

Autonomous Corridor Project Phase 1

Phase 1 of MAGIC’s Autonomous Corridor Project is what could be informally dubbed as the ‘mapping phase’. During this phase, MAGIC will work with Dynamic Dimensions Technologies (DDT), to scan the route most suitable for the Autonomous Corridor. The vehicle being used in phase 1 will be manually driven (by humans) to capture the route the autonomous vehicle will take.

As part of AP Corp’s partnership with MAGIC, AP Corp will also help wrap the autonomous vehicles with a custom, e-fleet wrap to brand the new fleet.

MAGIC Partners with AP Corp for their Fleet Branding and Fleet Wrap Installation

When asked if we could help with the Autonomous Corridor Project, AP Corp jumped at the opportunity. Tara Davis, AP Corp Creative Director stated, “The team at AP Corp absolutely loved being involved in such a forward-thinking event right in our backyard. Seeing the community’s support for the Autonomous Corridor Project and talking to the other sponsors was so exciting!”

AP Corp is Your Local Fleet Wrapping Company

AP Corp is a Maryland fleet wrapping company located in Sykesville, MD. Specializing in fleet graphics and fleet branding, AP Corp was an ideal fit for helping with branding the vehicles used in the Autonomous Corridor Project.
