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

Picture This, Our Wrap Process!

At Picture This we have a specific standard for treating our customers. Our wrap process allows us to effortlessly maintain that level of customer service. When we start working with a client, we sit down and discuss their business and advertising needs. One thing we pride ourselves on is advising our customers on what we have seen to be best, even if that is a much cheaper option. We are here to help our customers make the best decision so that their company can grow! After we discuss what they need, we get into the wants of the design with them. After we know what they need and what they want, we pass that information to designers that have been tested in a wide variety of styles by our president in order to find the designers that represent the level of quality work we want to produce. Our designs, or as we call them mock-ups, then go back to the client. We offer multiple revisions on our mock-ups so if you are not happy with the first look, you will not pay more to get the design where you want it! Once scheduled for install, get excited! The day before install you hand wash the vehicle and drop it off on your install date. Once your wrap is installed, we call you and you become a fan! That is our ultimate goal, every client leaves a happy fan of Picture This!
