There is a new technique sweeping the auto industry, vinyl wraps. Wraps are gaining popularity over traditional paint jobs daily, so, what’s the scoop? Let’s look at 4 reasons why car owners would rather wrap than paint.
In today’s economy, anything that is priced right is going to attract attention. Considering an average price range, wrapping costs 25%-30% less than a paint job. Basically, the high end of wrapping is almost equal to the low end of painting. With painting, there is so much prep work to do just to get the car ready, including the removal of old paint, doors and the hood. The next step is the primer, at least two coats of paint and finally the clear-coat. Don’t forget, you are getting charged labor for all these steps, and with curing time between coats, you may not have use of your car for up to two weeks.
With wrapping, the process is much simpler. The wrap is like a sticker, so the application process is relatively simple. The longest downtime you will face is a day or two.
If downtime does not click with you as an expense, ask yourself how you are going to get around. Friends or co-workers can give you a ride for a day or two, but when you get into weeks of rides, gas money will come up. Of course, if money is no object, you could take a cab every day.
The most appealing part of wrapping is, when you decide to sell, the wrap can be easily taken off and your paint will still look as good as the day it was wrapped, protecting your resale value. When selling your car, people will try to find any nick or flaw in order to pay less. Since your vinyl wrap has kept your paint job safe, you can confidently stand firm on that asking price.
We change our clothes and we change our minds, what do we do when we want a change for our cars? With vinyl wraps, you can change the look of your car’s exterior. When opting for a paint job, you are getting just a basic color job. Any graphics you may want will drive the price almost out of range. Wrapping allows you to design your own graphics or select from a staggering variety of existing options. So many choices are available from matte and gloss finished designs to extreme designs and carbon fiber. For a stunning effect, you can even opt for a chrome finish.
Visit any car show these days and you are sure to find several cars sporting a vinyl wrap. Some of the designs available are so detailed and intricate, the owner will only use the car as a showpiece. While you will be using your car daily, you can still have the assurance of having a showroom quality wrap. Keeping your car looking pristine is as simple as hand washing. The finish on vinyl wraps helps prevent road grime from becoming one with your car.
