Do You Really Need Vehicle Wraps? This Will Help You Decide!

Car graphics and wraps are cost-effective moving billboards for business advertising. Besides, custom car decals are also popular for personal use. You may be interested in the vehicle graphics but do you really need vehicle wraps? Will your investment worth it? Here is some advice.

 

What are vehicle graphics and wraps?

 

Vehicle graphics and wraps refer to self-adhesive vinyl films with digitally printed images. Vinyl graphics usually mean smaller size stickers or decals for the car hood, door panel, window, bumpers, etc. Vinyl wraps will cover a larger area of the car, such as 1/2 partial wrap or full wrap.

 

How much do car graphics and wraps cost?

The cost of printed vinyl wraps depends on the size of the vehicle and the material you select. The average cost typically ranges from $1,000 to $5,000 per car. And car graphics cost range from $0.1 to $100 per piece. ACME vinyl wraps and decals have a lifespan of 5~7 years, and you can change the graphics without leaving residue to the factory paint.

Will the wrap decrease your vehicle’s value?

No matter your reason for looking into car wraps, knowing if it could increase or decrease your vehicle’s value is important.
If you own a business and want to do advertising on your company fleet or cars. Then vehicle wrap is a good choice. Because it’s cost-effective and flexible. You can change your vinyl decals any time, which is convenient for short-term or holiday promotions. Besides, vinyl wraps can help protect your cars’ factory paint job from scratches, abrasions, contamination, and sun exposure. If you plan to resell the vehicle, remove the vinyl and you will find the car is in perfect condition.
However, if you apply a custom vinyl wrap for your own car, its value may be increased or decreased when reselling. Cause customized car wrap is tailored to an individual’s taste. If the buyer has the same taste as you, then the vinyl wrap can increase the resell value. In other cases, a personalized car decal will decrease your vehicle’s value.

Notes: If you use a low-quality wrap, not only will it be prone to bubbles and peeling, it can actually damage the paint job underneath. Thereby the value of your vehicle will be reduced.

 

Is the paint on your vehicle in good condition?

Many people want to apply vinyl wraps on used vehicles, which is a budget-friendly option. However, when we talk about the removability of vinyl wraps, the premise is they are applied on the factory paint surfaces. If the paint on your car is not in good condition, then removing the vinyl will pull up and damage some of the paint on the vehicle.
Many companies use older or re-purposed vehicles in their fleets. Wrapping these vehicles is not a problem, but you will need to know the possible damage after removing the wrap.

 

Summarize

Do you really need vehicle wraps? If you are a business owner, we strongly recommend you this cost-effective promotion option. If it’s for personal use, check if you could accept the cost, then confirm if your paint condition is good.
At last, please work with companies that use durable vehicle wrap vinyl,like ACME. We will include the vinyl specifics in your quote, including the lifespan, removability, etc.
