    Pros and cons of wrapping a car

    Pros of Car Wrapping

    Some of the pros of car wrapping include:

    Car Wraps are Personalized

    Since all vinyl wraps are custom made to suit the tastes for each individual customer and can be designed to incorporate any colours, messaging, images, or patterns, more and more motorists are opting to wrap their vehicles over getting custom paint jobs. Choosing to get a custom vehicle wrap for your car provides you with the freedom of having a car that is completely unique to you.

    Vehicle Wraps Protect Your Paint

    Vinyl vehicle wraps can work as an extra layer of protection for your vehicle against small chips and dings, as well as damage from sun exposure. Protecting the underlying paint on your vehicle can help preserve the car’s resale value and help you avoid having to pay for any minor repairs to the paint job.

    Vinyl Wraps are Removable

    One of the main pros of wrapping a car is that vinyl vehicle wraps can be removed at any time without damaging the underlying paint. Car wraps can also be replaced at any time, making it easy for business owners to change their company branding or messaging.

    Cons of Car Wrapping

    Some of the cons of car wrapping include:

    You Get What You Pay For

    For those who are looking to wrap their vehicle on a budget, it is important to note that you get what you pay for. Purchasing a car wrap that is made of lower quality vinyl or trying to wrap your car by yourself will often result in a less desirable finish than if you purchase a high-quality vinyl product and have it installed by a car wrap installation professional.

    Drastic Colour Changes

    While completely changing the colour of your car with a vehicle wrap may look great initially, if the wrap suffers any scuffs or scratches, the original colour of the car may begin to seep through the wrap. This will result in the wrap losing its overall finished appeal, while also diminishing the protective element the vinyl wrap has to offer.
