    Car Wrap Finishes

    Car wraps are available with the following finishes:

    Gloss Vinyl Wrap

    Glossy vinyl wraps provide a shimmering and shiny appearance that is similar to a clear coat or glossy paint. A glossy vinyl wrap is one of the most popular choices for personal and business use as it can make any vehicle look brand new.

    Matte Vinyl Wrap

    Matte vinyl wrap finishes are another popular choice for personal and business use. This type of finish eliminates the reflective appearance of conventional car paint, resulting in a flat and distinct look. This is an ideal option to emphasize the contours and angles on your vehicle, making it a great choice for Tesla vehicles, sportscars, and modern cars.

    Chrome Wrap

    A chrome wrap is highly reflective and can be applied to nearly any type of vehicle. Like other types of vinyl wraps, chrome wraps can be a solid colour or utilize a variety of patterns and images. The highly reflective nature of chrome wraps can make your vehicle stand out in a crowd.

    Colour-Changing Wrap

    Also known as pearlescent wraps, colour-changing wraps have a different appearance based on lighting conditions and viewing angle. For example, they can look purple at one angle and blue or green at another. This creates a unique appearance for your vehicle that changes every time you look at it.

    Clear Vinyl Wrap

    As noted by the name, clear vinyl wraps are completely transparent and can be applied to your vehicle to protect your existing paint. Clear vinyl wraps can also utilize text and images for advertising purposes. For example, if you have a dark blue vehicle, you can utilize white text or images. This allows you to keep your existing paint colour while using your vehicle as a mobile advertisement for your business.
