    How Can We Help?

    Have a question about vehicle wraps that isn’t listed below? Simply give us a call!

    What is a vehicle wrap?

    A vehicle wrap is a protective vinyl alternative to your vehicle’s paint. It can be a single colour or complex pattern/design. Our in-house graphic designers will design it to your exact specifications. After that, the design will be printed on vinyl, laminated and installed on your vehicle.

    How much does a vehicle wrap cost?

    The cost of wrapping a vehicle with a vinyl wrap depends on the type of vehicle, wrap design and desired coverage. Partial vehicle wraps start at $697 and full vehicle wraps start at $1897. On average, the cost of a vehicle wrap ranges between $1,000-$2495 which is usually less expensive than paint.

    How is a vehicle wrap designed?

    Wrap Guys has its own talented, in-house graphic design team. Using the latest technology, we work directly with our clients throughout the entire process to ensure that their message and branding are exactly how they envisioned it. We make sure that we receive approval on any final mockups or proofs before moving onto the printing stage.

    How is a vehicle wrap printed?

    Vehicle wraps are printed on 3M ControlTac or Avery wrap cast vinyl with latex ink. After the vehicle wraps are printed, they are laminated with a protective layer. The latest printing technology and high-quality printing materials are used to ensure that all of vehicle wraps are long-lasting and printed in the highest resolution possible.

    How do you wrap a vehicle?

    Vehicle wrap installations are our specialty! All of our wrap installers are fully trained with a minimum of 10 years’ experience in vehicle wrapping. Our installation process involves precision, accuracy and extreme attention to detail.

    Where do you wrap the vehicle?

    Our main shop is located in Langley, BC although we have installation bays located all across Canada. If you are interested in finding the nearest location, give us a call today!

    Can vehicle wraps be applied to windows?

    Vehicle wraps can only be installed on rear and rear side windows. We ensure that all of our window graphics are printed with a special perforated vinyl that allows the driver and passengers to see through.

    If the company information on my wrap changes, can it be replaced?

    Of course! We can adjust your wrap’s graphics, logos and messaging when needed. We can reprint and reinstall the vinyl as overlays on the original car wrap.

    Is a vehicle wrap easy to remove?

    Absolutely, a vehicle wrap is easy to remove! Removing a vinyl vehicle wrap is a simple process that doesn’t take a lot of time. Removing a vehicle wrap requires the proper tools and experience. When removed properly, the vinyl vehicle wrap will not cause any damage to the underlying paint.

    Will a vinyl wrap damage the paint on a vehicle?

    No, it will not. When a vehicle wrap is installed and removed properly by professionals, it will not cause any damage to the vehicle’s underlying paint. In fact, when installed properly, a vinyl vehicle wrap will help to protect your vehicle’s underlying paint for years to come.

    Will Wrap Guys pay me to drive my car with someone else’s advertising?

    Unfortunately, no. We only handle the design, printing and installation of vehicle wraps. Wrap Guys is not an advertising broker.

    Are you able to wrap leased vehicles?

    Yes, we can wrap leased vehicles. Our vehicle wraps cause no damage to the vehicle and there are no restrictions against custom wraps on leased vehicles.

    How long do vehicle wraps last?

    The life expectancy of a vehicle wrap depends on the quality of materials, printing and installation. On average, most vehicle wraps last between 5-7 years. At Wrap Guys, you can expect our vehicle wraps to last at least 9 years when properly cared for. Most of our vehicle wraps outlast the vehicles themselves.

    How should I take care of my vehicle wrap?

    Treat your vehicle wrap with care and try to stick to hand washing. Avoid using any type of scraper or power washing as these can cause damage. You can brush your vehicle’s windows and use your vehicle’s rear defroster as you normally would.

    How long will it take you to wrap my vehicle?

    Depending on the size and scope of the wrap, it usually takes us between 1-2 days to complete. Before we start the process, we provide our customers with a time estimate.
