Q?

How long vehicle do wraps last?

A.

Dirt and exposure to the sun’s damaging UV rays are a vehicle wrap's worst enemy. Generally speaking, with reasonable care and cleaning, a vehicle wrap will last on average 4 or 5 years. With excellent care, they can last indefinitely. On the flip side, neglected wraps can start to show wear and tear in just a couple of years.

We use only the best media on the market including: 3M, Avery, KPMF, and Arlon.  We guarantee our installations for 1 year. Rest assured, typically, if something on the wrap is going to fail, it's going to happen within the first few weeks. Just give us a call and schedule some time to come by the shop so we can fix it!

It is important that you do your part to maintain your vehicle graphics. Vinyl is a porous material. If dirt and grime have a chance to settle into those tiny pores, the vinyl will becomes difficult to clean and will lose its luster. We recommend hand washing with mild soap and water at least bi-weekly for the good maintenance of the vinyl. Mechanical car washes are not recommended and may void your warranty. Do not use bug remover, polish, wax or other chemicals on the wrap. Never use a pressure washer on your wrap!
