Q: How Much Does It Cost to Wrap A Car with 3M Vinyl?
A: Most people consider it’s expensive to wrap a car. Actually, most costs incurred from professional wrapping service, which is labor-intensive. The average baseline costs of having a professional apply a wrap is between $2000 to $7000, based on the vehicle size and class.
However, if you feel you can do the task yourself, there are fewer costs associated with the process than professional installation. The approximate cost is $600-$750, and these prices will vary depending on the vinyl retailer, the color, and the design of the wrap.
