Vehicle wraps have many purposes. They can be used to protect the paint on your car, add a design, color, or texture, or to display your brand or advertise your company. One common question people have when it comes to car wraps is, “how does it work?” You may be surprised to find that the process is relatively simple, thanks to modern technology. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at the process of making and applying a vehicle wrap.

Vehicle Appraisal

It’s important to understand some information about the vehicle you want wrapped before getting started. For example, vehicle wraps can’t be applied to oxidized paint, because it has a powdery consistency that will come off when a vehicle wrap is removed. Certain vehicles may also require extended installation time due to their size or shape.


In order to create a vehicle wrap that’s perfect for your car, you’ll need very precise measurements. Once a template is created for your car with all the dimensions in place, you’ll need to figure out what design you want on your car. You’ll most likely be working with a designer who specializes in vehicle wraps and will help you make your design of choice look great on your vehicle.


A special printer is used to print a vehicle wrap. During this process, weather-resistant materials are used to ensure that your new wrap is not affected by water, wind, or dirt. These printers are designed to create very precise sheets that will fit on your car perfectly without overlapping or leaving any space uncovered. You’ll have a different amount of sheets depending on what kind of vehicle you’re wrapping.


Now that the easy part is done, your vehicle wrap specialist will begin the installation process. Installing a vehicle wrap properly takes years of practice and patience in order to learn to do it correctly. There can’t be any creases or loose corners on the vehicle, because over time, they will begin to wear off and ruin the design. It’s important to note that every vehicle is different as far as design and scale, so this process could take anywhere between 12 to 16 hours. Oftentimes, panels will be dry-fitted before being applied to ensure everything is aligned.
