3M Vinyl Material for Partial Wraps
Graphics AtoZ wraps all vehicles here in Houston with top of its class, 3M 180 Vinyl Film. What sets the 3M 180 vinyl apart from its competitors is its adhesive and the non-visible air release channels. 3M Vinyl Films are known for its high quality, cost-effective, specialty adhesives. They allow temporary or permanent customization with numerous decorations. It is suitable for application on flat surfaces, and simple and moderate curves.
Our vinyl wrap offers cleaned on 3M 180 film standard colors. It is the top-quality standard on wrap vinyl. It is durable, water-resistant, UV, and chemical resistant, typically lasting 3 to 5 years. You can choose between opaque, reflective, perforated, and transparent films. Keep in mind that vinyl wraps do not stick to plastic parts, aluminum, or fiberglass.
3M 180 Vinyl laminate is considered one of the best due to the film’s bubble-free application. It has invisible air release channels allowing air to escape. These air release channels aid the installer in applying a bubble-free wrap. These features make the 3M vinyl film the best.
When covering windows, a perforated 3M Graphic Vinyl Film is used. Then, it is laminated to help keep dirt out of the perforations. Perforated Vinyl Film allows you to see out of the vehicle while displaying your advertisement from the outside.
Benefits of Advertising with Vehicle Graphic Wraps
Advertise for your business by adding a full vehicle graphic wrap to your marketing strategy. According to a study by Geopath, vehicle wraps make thirty thousand to seventy thousand daily impressions. Not only does your brand get noticed, but the vinyl wrap will also increase your brand recognition and increase familiarity with your business. When it comes to decision making, people pick based on logos they recognize. The American Trucking Association points out that twenty-nine percent of viewers would make a purchase based on a vehicle they saw. While you are driving to your next destination, the wrap work for you with little effort. For smaller companies, it legitimizes their business and increases sales.
Partial Truck Wrap vs. Full Truck Wrap
Showcase your business while on the road. Full Truck Wrap and Partial Truck Wrap are both excellent choices. Both types of vinyl wraps are very efficient tools to attract and promote your brand anywhere, anytime.
PROS: Why buy a Partial Wrap? The simple answer is cost. Because of the reduction in coverage, we can offer lower price points. When done properly, a partial truck wrap is as effective as a full truck wrap. They will both generate leads, increase consumer confidence in your company, and much more.
CONS: Keep in mind that although partial wrapping is cheaper, it can leave marks on the vehicle after removal. This phenomenon is known as vinyl ghosting. Note that vinyl ghosting is more typically caused by glue residue from the vinyl wrap. This can be removed with specialized solutions and buffing.
However, in some instances, UV exposure can change the color of the original paint. Remember, the vinyl section will protect the truck’s original paint, so when you remove the vinyl after many years of use, you can see a difference in shade between the covered and uncovered sections. If you plan to resell the truck, this may affect the value.
Partial truck wraps can suffer from vinyl ghosting at the end of its life. This can reduce the value of the truck when selling it or trading it in.
Before Installing Your Truck Graphic Wrap
The preparation before wrapping your vehicle is crucial for a practical and durable Vehicle Wrap. We recommend you wash the car a day before the scheduled wrap. Make sure the car wash service does not include wax. Before the application, the vehicles must be as clean as possible. If not, the 3M Vinyl Adhesive will not stick correctly to the car. Please do not wash the car the same day as the scheduled appointment. For a vehicle to be completely dry, it needs to be washed the day before and preferably kept indoors, so it can dry thoroughly and be free of dust and pollen.
Process of Wrapping your Vehicle
Below, we outline the four primary stages for getting your vehicle wrap. We will begin by giving you a no-obligation quote based on your exact needs. Then, we will walk you through the design phase and schedule the installation with you.
- Custom Car Wrap Quote – If you need a custom price quote on your vehicle wrap, please contact us today. Let us know which vehicle you need to wrap and what you are trying to do. We will need the vehicle’s model and year. Also, if the car has dents or scratches, you may need to bring it to our Houston location for evaluation.
- Graphic Design for the Vehicle Wrap – If you have your design, bring it to us. If not, we can work with you to establish what you need. Typically, it takes up to 3 days for the design process.
- Schedule an Appointment to Wrap the Vehicle – Once you finish your design, we will need to print the 3M vinyl. The vinyl printing process can take 2 to 3 days.
- Vehicle Wrap Installation – Once you drop off the vehicle, it takes 1-3 days for the actual installation. Most vehicles will take two days for a full wrap. Before installation, the car needs to be clean.
Vehicle Wrap Removability
All vehicle vinyl wraps are long-term removable. What this means is that you can remove the film as many times as needed without damaging the original color, protecting the original paint. With full vehicle wraps, you avoid the ghosting effect caused by partial or custom graphics wraps.
Pickup Truck Wrap Life Expectancy
Taking good care of your Ford Truck Graphic Wrap is critical for its durability. The color and laminate coatings for 3M 180 Vinyl Wrap Film are designed to last up to 5 years. By washing your car frequently and parking on the shade, it will make the wrap last even longer.
Pressure Activated Adhesive for Edge Wrap
The 3M 180 Vinyl Wrap Film can be stretched up to 40 percent. This stretching capability makes the molding around curves, and sharp bumper edges simple for a trained installer and prevents peeling from the edges. Using a high-quality adhesive for the vehicle edges of the wrap separates an excellent quality car wrap service to the rest of the competition.
Extra Charge for Vinyl Removal and Stickers
Please note that there will be an additional charge for removing existing wraps, stickers, or plastic trim pieces. If the truck bed panels are damaged, there may be limitations on the ability to do a full wrap.
