What Makes a World Class Vehicle Wrapping Company?
How do you know if you’re choosing the right vehicle wrapping company? There are certain signs you should look for in a company that will make a big difference in the design, installation, and overall wrap quality and durability. So what should you look for when choosing a vehicle wrapping company?
A Gallery or Portfolio
Check out the company’s website. Do they have a gallery of past vehicle wrapping projects? A professional vehicle wrapping company will always display their previous work loud and proud. Without a portfolio to look at, how will you know they do quality work?
Professional In-House Designers
An amazing Design is what will set your wrap apart from the rest. An experienced designer knows the curves of a vehicle, problem areas an installer will run into with certain makes and models, and design elements that will accent different types of vehicles. The right designer makes a huge impact on the final product. Make sure you choose wisely.
High Quality, Wide Format Printing
What kind of printer does the company use? Are they printing in-house or ordering through another company? There are many common issues that can surface during the printing process. The color may come out wrong, an element may not print right, or the printing company could ship the wrong graphics to the install company. Off-site printing can significantly delay the overall vehicle wrap installation process.
Going through a company that uses advanced in-house printers and is certified in color-management techniques will ensure you’re getting the right graphics in a convenient time-frame.
Are the graphics installers trained and certified? The common certification for vehicle wrapping is 3M. If you’re after a wrap that’s going to be installed the right way the first time around, look for that 3M Certified or Endorsed logo. They look a little something like this…
Vehicle Wrap Warranty
Vinyl isn’t like getting a paint job. Vinyl offers a lot more flexibility to the design of your graphics while adding a protective layer to the original paint on your vehicle, much like paint protection film. However, with vinyl, you should expect some typical wear and tear over the 5-10 years you have your wrap. The difference in a Certified 3M MCS Warranty shop and one that isn’t is knowing what kind of wear and tear is covered and covering it. Absolute Perfection ensures your vehicle is always covered under warranty.
Does your wrap shop have awards, trophies, magazine mentions, etc.? A notable wrap shop gets recognized for its quality work. Look for things like wrap competition awards, and mentions in wrap magazines like Signs & Digital Graphics!
If the vehicle wrapping company you are looking into doesn’t express any of these awards, certifications, or portfolios, they might not be the best to work with. After all, you want to be sure you’re getting what you pay for because a vehicle wrap is an investment that should last.
