Orange County entrepreneurs are taking a renewed interest in the art and science that is combined when marketing with vehicle wraps. After posing questions to the knowledgeable experts at Superior Signs and Graphics, we decided to let the friendly folks from our subsidiary – SuperiorCarWraps.com – handle the most commonly asked car wraps questions in Orange County.
A: No, on the contrary. A professionally installed vehicle wrap from SuperiorCarWraps.com actually helps to protect your paint from UV rays and other damages caused by the elements.
A: We use only top quality vinyls from Avery and 3M. These materials are guaranteed for up to nine years if maintained properly.
A: Yes, we do. We warrant our professional installations for 120 days. If there were any errors or mistakes, they will become glaringly obvious by then. Manufacturer warranties apply to the vinyl itself. For example, 3M offers different warranties for its various materials as long as they have been professionally installed.
A: If you decide in the first three years to remove the wrap, it comes off without a problem. If you wait until more than three years have elapsed, there may be some adhesive residue that we then remove separately.
A: Once you approve the final design, it takes about two days to fully wrap a car. One day is devoted to preparation and vinyl printing. The second day is taken up by the actual installation process.
A: Yes, we can! Since we keep your artwork on file, we can reproduce the damaged section. Once your mechanic has fixed the car, bring it on over for us to fix the damaged wrap, too.
A: Please wait at least a week – preferably a month – before bringing your car to us for a wrap. The paint needs to fully cure for best results.
A: Yes, it is! Color change wraps are getting more popular and achieve the same results as your standard paint job. Just make sure that your current paint job is in decent shape before asking us to apply the change wrap.
A: Please send your artwork in .eps, .ai, .png or high-resolution PDF files.
A: Sure! We usually ask for a 50 percent deposit on all orders, but if you want to see the computer work before committing to the project, we gladly accept $300 and then produce the wrap after the remainder of the deposit is paid.
A: Your wrap will cover the whole vehicle. Decals are die-cut pieces of vinyl that we apply directly to the paint of the car. When the base color of the car works well with your logo and color of the artwork, it can be a money-saving alternative.
A: Yes, we do. A partial wrap usually does not include the hood and roof. We will take extra care to ensure that the partial wrap colors match the hue of your vehicle’s paint.
A: Cast vinyl is the Cadillac of materials and beautifully conforms to the curves of your car, truck or van. Calendered vinyl is the workhorse of the industry. It is thicker and a bit more unwieldy. While cast vinyl is perfect for wraps, calendered vinyl is excellent for decals and lettering.
A: Great! Please bring in your vehicle for an estimate. The cost of wraps and decals depends in large part on the amount of vinyl that we need to use, which in turn is determined by the make and model of your car, truck or van. If you do not have a print-ready design, there may be additional charges.
