Custom Personal Vehicle Wraps and Matte Wraps: Not just for advertising!
If you're considering changing the look of your classic car or luxury vehicle, you're probably aware that paint jobs can either devalue your investment significantly or, done right, they can be very costly. What you might not know is that a vehicle wrap can be an easy and cost effective way to shake up your look while protecting the value of your car.
Even if you’re leasing, vehicle wraps are 100% removable. They act as a protective cover for your paint rather than damaging it. A vehicle wrap involves taking sheets of high quality vinyl and literally shrink wrapping them to the surface of your car. A professionally installed wrap will transform the look of your car, allowing you to achieve a matte black wrap, matte red or other custom paint color, all without devaluing the vehicle!
An increasingly popular look for personal vehicle wraps, for everything from Ford to Ferrari, is the black matte wrap. Black matte is unusual, contemporary, and just plain cool looking. Major wrap media providers, such as Oracal, have been improving the technology used to create matte black cast vinyl. The material is wide enough to avoid most of the seams on your vehicle so it looks even more like a paint job.
Maybe you love the idea of a matte look, but you're not thrilled about black. Colored matte wraps are less popular than basic black, but there are a couple of ways of achieving your very own matte rainbow. Just like black, some materials come simply as solid matte colors, such as red, green or blue. The other way of achieving your desired look is to start with a full color digital print and coat it with a matte laminate. That means an army green can be made into a matte army green.
Why choose a matte black or personal wrap:
- Vehicle wraps cost less than a premium paint job
- Protect OEM paint from the element
- Protect leased vehicles from road debris
- Maintain the value of your luxury or classic car
- Choose matte black wraps or other custom colors
- Seamless finish, just like paint
Personalized Vehicle Wraps vs. Painting
There is some debate about whether wrapping or painting is the more costly option. It’s a difficult question to answer since both methods vary greatly depending on the materials used and the quality of the work. If you're in the market for a quick paint job, it will most likely be cheaper than a wrap.
However if you're planning on a professional paint job as most of our luxury car clients do, you have probably already researched the multiple step process.Having your car properly sanded, primed, and painted, is fairly costly: A vehicle wrap could be far less. Further, it’s our understanding your car is out of commission for a few weeks while it’s painted. So, add in the cost of a rental car, too. If cost isn’t as much of a concern as the quality of the finished look, keep in mind that professional vehicle wrap installation can create a virtually seamless look.
The other advantage that vehicle wrapping has over painting is flexibility. When properly taken care of, a wrap can last for five years, which is likely longer than the shelf life of that cheap, quicky paint job you were considering. When you're ready to have the wrap removed, it comes off easily and with no damage to the car underneath. This gives you the option of switching the look of your car as often as you like without creating permanent regrets.
Leased vehicle wraps:
We've mentioned the benefits of matte black wraps for exotic and classic cars, but what about those of us who haven't yet found the ride of our dreams? Wraps are perfect for people who are leasing vehicles and interested in a change of pace. If you're looking to stand out on the road, but don't want to violate your lease agreement, a vehicle wrap is the solution to your problems. Since a wrap lasts up to five years, it’s the perfect candidate to have a matte black wrap installed at the beginning of your lease agreement.
