WRAPS the basics of what you should know.

Think of a vehicle wrap as a custom sticker applied to a surface like a new skin that can totally transform the look of the vehicle. Wraps allow us to transform cars and boats much like a new paint job would, turning something ordinary into something extraordinary. Our team has access to so many different types of vinyl and printing techniques, we are sure to find something that fits your style, needs, and budget. With today’s technology, what we are able to wrap is almost limitless.

Most printed wraps are made to last for a life span of 5-7 years, allowing for a fairly simple removal. Not only do wraps do not harm the paint underneath, but they also act as a thin protective layer against everyday light bruising like bumps from grocery carts.

Here at Picture This Wraps and Graphics we LOVE wraps! Vinyl wraps are used almost everywhere now, so we’ve been lucky enough to have been a part of some creative and crazy projects. From wrapping Wolverine’s motorcycle for the movie “Logan” to transforming one family’s three car garage into their own personal beach, the sky’s the limit on what we can wrap!

We primarily focus on commercial vehicle wraps that help businesses stand out from their competition with a professional and memorable brand, but we can wrap walls, boats, storefront windows, trailers, even coffins (yes, some people do wrap coffins). We love a creative and unique project!

Check out our miscellaneous wraps gallery to see some interesting things people have had wrapped. Please note that not all projects were done by Team Picture This.


Once you decide you’d like to have a wrap done, we will start with a survey to review all measurements and details of the vehicle. From there, we will do what we call an “art interview” where we’ll ask some key questions to learn more about your company and your goals for the wrap. This step is crucial for our design team to be able to give you our best design mockup for your needs from the start. You will be invited to a custom project board where you and the designer will work together to find your desired look.

Once you are pleased with your new wrap’s design mockup, you will sign off on it and schedule your installation date, which is typically a week and a half to two weeks out (although some times are busier than others). Typically, we only need your vehicle for one day, but a maximum of two days may be needed for a more complex installation. We do ask our clients to hand wash their vehicles as well as remove any wax 24 hours prior to being wrapped so that the soap gases out properly and so water isn’t dripping out of the vehicle’s crevices while we are applying your vinyl. Please do not use Armor All on the tires as the overspray falls on the vehicle wheel wells and is very hard to remove to apply your wrap.

After your wrap is installed, we will provide you with information on how to care for it. Keeping your vehicle clean according to our guidelines not only prolongs the life of the vinyl but also ensures your graphics stay vibrant and attention-grabbing. While there are special wrap washes and waxes out there, we recommend simply using a mild dish detergent like Dawn and a non-abrasive sponge. We do not recommend pressure washing the wrap and ask that you avoid automatic car washes since the pressure and brushes can damage the wrap’s finish over time. For more information, please refer to our wrap maintenance tips page. Your wrap also comes with a 2-year Picture This Warranty, and our team is always here to help if any issues should arise.

Once your vehicle is wrapped, it’s time to get your vehicle on the road and shift your marketing into high gear! Whenever you park the vehicle, position the vehicle as close to the street as possible to increase its visibility to passerby. We also recommend that you ask your clients how they heard about you so you can gauge how quickly your wrap pays for itself.

Our business is helping your business grow and we want you as a fan of Picture This. You’re sure to get questions about your sleek new wrap once it’s out on the road and the highest compliment we can receive is a referral.

  • Commercial Wraps

    Turn your company vehicle into a mobile billboard with a sleek and professional commercial wrap!

    If your vehicles aren’t currently advertising your business, you’ve got an untapped resource at your fingertips. Commercial wraps are a cost-effective way to increase brand awareness and help you stand out from the competition. They are typically custom designed and digitally printed in full color on white vinyl with a protective lamination before being installed on your vehicle. Once installed, wraps generally have a 5-7 year lifespan if cared for properly. (And don’t worry, they’re very easy to care for.) Simply put, you can’t beat the value of a commercial vehicle wrap.

    Commercial wrap customers can choose between a full coverage wrap or a partial coverage wrap, with the cost based on square footage covered. Full wraps are the most impressive since entire vehicle is covered in graphics, but partial wraps usually offer the best bang for your buck, especially for larger fleets.

    We know vehicle wraps are an investment in your business and our team works hard to provide the best return on that investment. We believe that informed decisions are the best decisions, so we educate our customers throughout the design process. We pride ourselves on not being “yes men” and will speak up when something may not be in your best interest. Our job is to understand to your needs and deliver the best wrap solution to meet them.

    Our designers are the best in the business and have years of experience specializing in vehicle wrap design. Great design is key and we are big believers in “less is more.” We understand that it’s difficult to absorb a ton of information in a short time (like when someone drives past your vehicle), so the most important elements like your business name/logo are enlarged to take centerstage. In order to encourage brand awareness, we urge our clients to keep their wrap’s look consistent across their business, everywhere from business cards to their website.

    Visit our Commercial Wrap Gallery to see some of the businesses we’ve helped in the past.

    We also do many custom designed personal wraps on boats or even in homes and offices that show the customer’s unique style.
