Wrap Industry Secrets

There are some things in the wrap industry that some wrap shops just do not want you to know. Picture This Wraps and Graphics wants to be completely open with our clients so we are here to reveal some of those wrap industry secrets!

1. Many companies do not respond to requests for quotes

A couple of months ago I called 5 companies and of the 5, not a single one sent me a quote. Now, a couple did give me a price range and promise to give me a proper quote but, even after a month and a couple of follow-ups I did not receive anything. 
If a company can not get back to you about quoting their job, it is a little hard to imagine they will be responsive in other aspects of doing business with you. At Picture This Wraps and Graphics, it is important to us that if we promise you a quote, you get a quote! 

2. One Quote does not fit all!

Wraps are custom just for your vehicle so many times when you visit a website, you will not find wrap pricing! We price your wrap on many different variables including whether you get a printed wrap or a solid color, if you need a design, the complexity of your vehicle, the needed coverage, and several other factors. For this reason, we cannot list our prices on the website. If you are ready to get started on your wrap, give us a call so we can get you a proper quote!

3. Your wrap will not look the same in 10 years

If you are getting your wrap from us, you probably live in the South! That means your vehicle gets a lot of sun during the day. Your vertical surfaces get less sun than the horizontal surfaces of the vehicle and because of this, your graphics will fade quicker. That being said, your graphics should still last several years! 

4. Not all vinyl brands are the same!

We use mainly 3M brand vinyl as we find it to be the best of the best! With so many brands of vinyl out there you really want to make sure that you know what your wrap shop is using on your vehicle. If they are not using a reputable brand of vinyl it could fail or worse, ruin your underlying paint job! 

5. Laminating your wrap will save you money in the long run

While you could initially save a little bit of money by asking us not to laminate your wrap before installation, you will have to spend more money in the long run! Lamination helps protect against UV rays and scratches. Without laminating your wrap, your graphics become more susceptible to damage and need to be replaced MUCH sooner! We laminate all of our prints before installation so they look good as long as possible

Boat Wrap

This is our most recent Boat Wrap and we absolutely love the way it came out! We did this wrap for Premier South Roofing. As with all of our wraps, we went through our process of first quoting the job. Then, upon approval and a deposit from the client, we get a mock-up, or digital proof of the design, ready for our client. Usually, we have to go through at least one round of revisions to get the exact look our client is looking for, but we will work hard to make sure that no matter how many revisions, we make the client happy! Then we get to the fun part!! We schedule the job and get to wrapping. By far our favorite part is seeing the look on the client’s face when their design is realized in person!

Boat Wraps and Graphics – 39ft Contender Boat Wrap

While we love to wrap almost anything, nothing is more impressive to me then the transformation of a big boat once wrapped. Absolutely love when the owner pulls up to see how impressive their boat looks once we are completed. Here is a full boat wrap we did for a repeat client, believe this is his 3rd boat wrapped now. Coastwide Electric of Louisiana.

This one is a 39ft Contender Boat with full wrap graphics designed, printed, and installed by Picture This Advertising of Louisiana.
