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

Simple, Yet Effective!

We know a vehicle wrap is an investment you take seriously and that you want to get your money’s worth. A lot of times this mentality can take clients down a path that will take away from the effectiveness of a wrap. Sometimes customers believe that adding a lot of text, a bold pattern, or just lots of information in general will give them more bang for the buck. Here at Picture This, we have found that simplicity is key to the most effective wrap! The key elements that you want in your wrap are your logo, your company’s name, your phone number, and to make sure that your audience can very quickly tell what you do.

The above wrap is an excellent example of this execution!

By avoiding adding a lot of text, your logo and the other essential elements of your wrap can be made bigger! Also, by keeping the background a solid color or a muted pattern, instead of a bold or rude pattern, you are better able to read the text your wrap does need.

We know that getting a wrap is an important investment for your business. Come in today and talk to an expert about getting the most effective wrap for your dollar!
