  • How Often Should You Replace a Car Wrap?

    If you are considering replacing your current vehicle wrap, it can be difficult to determine if it is the right time to do so. This decision becomes even more difficult if you are thinking of going for a different appearance or switching from a partial wrap to a full wrap. As leading providers of car wraps for all types of vehicles, the team at Wrap Guys knows it can be difficult to determine how often you should replace a car wrap. While our car wraps are designed to last between 7-9 years, some factors can require you to replace your wrap sooner. That is why we have compiled a list of important questions to ask yourself to help you determine if it is the right time to replace your vehicle wrap.

    3 Important Questions to Consider

    The following questions can help you determine if it is time to replace your car wrap:

    1. Has Your Wrap Been Damaged?

    Proper care and cleaning are crucial for maintaining the appearance and durability of your wrap. Failure to perform routine cleaning and maintenance can result in fading, rips, bubbles, and other types of damage. Though a lack of care is a common cause of wrap damage, it is important to account for accidents as well. Car accidents, collisions with nearby objects, and flying rocks on the highway can all cause damage to your wrap. If your wrap has been damaged due to an accident, it will likely make sense to have it repaired or replaced.

    2. Is Your Brand or Logo Changing?

    If your wrap is used to advertise and promote your business, it likely features your company name, logo, and other important information. Should any of this information change, you may need to replace portions of your wrap to align with these changes. If you rebrand or change your company colours, you may need to replace the entire wrap to maintain consistency across the board. For example, if your business card uses different colours and a different logo than your wrap, this may not leave a positive impression on clients.

    3. How Long Have You Had the Same Wrap?

    Though our wraps are designed to last between 7-9 years, you may choose to update your wrap before then for a variety of reasons. For example, you may simply want to change up the look of your car or wish to try a different approach to advertising. Changing up a business wrap design every 4-5 years can increase viewer engagement as they may get used to your old design over time and start to ignore it.
