How much does it usually cost to wrap your car?
Car Wraps can start as low as $2000 for a small two-door, such as a Fiat 500. A larger coupe, like a Chevy Camaro or a Ford Mustang, and smaller SUVs, trucks, and vans start at around $3500. Depending on the size of the vehicle, design time involved prices may vary.
Is wrapping a car worth it?
A vinyl wrap is the preferred method of vehicle advertising since it is less expensive than a custom paint job and provides much more design and finish options. Wraps have become the preferred form of “repainting” for private vehicle owners, thanks to their low costs when compared to a new paint job.
How much does a matte black car wrap cost?
If you’re curious how much it costs to wrap a car in 3M 2080 matte black, the answer is that it depends on where you live & what you drive. A regular sedan for example usually costs around $3,500 CAD, and larger vehicles can cost even more.
Does wrapping a car decrease its value?
The resale value of a wrapped car is significantly higher than that of a repainted vehicle. The explanation for this is that the wrapper can be removed without causing any harm to the vehicle. The value of your car is higher because the wrap protects the paint and it still looks like the day it was wrapped.
How long does it take to vinyl wrap a car?
Professionals would take 2 to 3 days to wrap the film and allow it to rest (12 hours). Allow 3-4 full days for DIYers who are working alone or with limited assistance. Depending on the size and complexity of the vehicle, two people will complete the task in 1.5-2 days.
How long do car wraps last?
Wraps that are applied to vehicles that are lightly used often will last 7 – 10 years when using a premium wrap vinyl such as 3M or Avery. A vehicle wrap’s average lifetime is approximately five years when heavily used on a vehicle such as a work truck. The installation process is another aspect that can greatly affect wraps’ longevity.
Can you wrap a car with dents?
If the area you want to wrap has a dent or even big scratches, it’s best to patch those first before adding a wrap. And if the vinyl adheres to a scratched surface, the damaged region is likely to stand out more when a wrap is applied on top of it.
How do you wash car wraps?
You may use an automatic brushless car wash to wash your wrapped vehicle, but hand washing is better and more thorough. Brush car washes can be too harsh on the film, causing it to degrade and peel, as well as lifted edges. Most wraps should be secure if a car wash uses water spray rather than brushes.
How long does 3M vinyl wrap last?
The expected performance life—that is, the length of time the 3M wrap should look good and stay adhered is 7 – 10 years if properly maintained.
Does vinyl wrap fade?
Is It Going to Fade? No way! Wraps of high quality can maintain their colour for the length of their use. With a high-quality wrap, high temperatures and UV rays aren’t a problem.

Car Wrap Design
You’ve seen car wraps before if you live in Alberta. Whether it’s a fully wrapped food truck or a vehicle fleet, the best type of mobile advertising is vehicle wraps.
A customized vehicle wrap created and installed by our expert designers will certainly leave a lasting impression as a business owner.

After your deposit has been received, we begin the design process for your vehicle wrap. Our team will handle your product. We carefully manage your car advertising project from start to completion. Detailed information is collected, such as photos of the actual vehicle being wrapped. This will provide the creative designer with important details about your vehicle.
Obstacles such as moldings may need to be taken into consideration. Concepts will be discussed and passed on to our designer. At this point, we will begin to provide some initial designs that will be reviewed with you. The designs are laid out on digital schematics of your actual vehicle and emailed to you in PDF or Jpg format.
This will give you an excellent idea of what the vehicle wrap will look like upon completion. You check these proofs for proper spelling and accurate phone numbers etc.
Once the design has been approved by you, we begin the production process for your vehicle wrap. Our in-house printing department can output your vehicle wrap according to 3M’s quality specifications to ensure a durable, attractive vehicle wrap. Only the finest 3M wrap materials are used.
Our purpose-built equipment outputs and laminates long-lasting wraps. We monitor the print quality and lamination during this phase and ensure that output is of the highest standards. Installation can make or break a vehicle wrap. This is why we have 3M certified installers applying your vehicle wrap. The vehicle is prepared and cleaned prior to installation. The temperature must be within 3M Canada specs. Installation typically requires 2 days to complete.
