  • Vinyl Wrap vs. Paint: The Benefits of Vinyl Car Wraps

    A lot of prospective customers often wonder why they should wrap their vehicles instead of painting them. Whether you are interested in a car wrap or truck wrap, there are many benefits of wrapping your vehicle in vinyl that paint cannot offer.

    While paint quality can vary, especially when you shop in a lower price point, painting your vehicle can look great at first; however, within a few years the paint on your vehicle will show wear and tear. Having your vehicle wrapped in a professionally installed vehicle wrap from Wrap Guys, means that your vehicle will remain breathtaking for years to come.

    The Benefits of Wrapping Your Vehicle in Vinyl

    Reasons to choose vinyl:


    Having your vehicle painted with high-quality paint can get pretty pricey, depending on the colour and paint shop. For the fraction of the cost of paint, you can have your vehicle wrapped for as long or as little as you want. Also, compared to paint, which can show wear and tear after a couple of years, vinyl wraps can last anywhere from 4-10 years.

    Resale Value

    Maintaining the original manufacturer’s paint can only add to the resale value of your vehicle. With vinyl wraps, you will be able to keep the original paint intact. At Wrap Guys, we offer high-quality vinyl wraps that are long lasting and can be safely removed, leaving the original vehicle paint pristine.

    Countless Options

    If your vehicle is not the colour that you have always dreamed of, either because you bought your vehicle used or because the paint colour you want is not available in factory paint, then getting a custom vehicle wrap is the perfect solution for you. With a high-quality vinyl wrap, you can have the colour car that you have always dreamed of. With vinyl car wraps, there are many different materials to choose from as well including vinyl matte materials. You can even get a new vinyl wrap every few years, if you feel in the mood for a change.


    Choosing to have your vehicle painted can mean having to go without your vehicle for two weeks or longer. Vehicle wrap installation is fast and easy. Even if you are looking to get a custom design, your vehicle doesn’t have to be dropped off until your design is completely finalized.


    With vinyl wrapping, you can say goodbye to chips, scratches, and abrasions. Every part of your vehicle that is covered with vinyl wrapping will work to protect the original paint from all natural hazards and weathering. Vinyl wraps are also able to withstand the affects of prolonged sun exposure.
