Answering Your Questions About Essex Vehicle Wrapping

What Is Vehicle Wrapping?

A vehicle wrap is when the car or van is partially or completely covered in a large vinyl graphic or decal. The last vinyl sheet is applied directly over the original paint of the vehicle.

By applying a wrap to your vehicle you will be able to change the appearance of the vehicle in a short period of time and this, in turn, permits you to have the wrap removed to return the vehicle in its original condition. You will find that wrapped cars protect the underlying paint for longer periods of time when compared to vehicles that have not had any vinyl wrapping added to their cars.

What Is Involved When You Have Your Cars Wrapped In Essex With 1st Call Signage?

Firstly, you’ll need to how big the vehicle that you want to wrap is and therefore the approximate costs involved. For information about the costs, please visit our wrapping price guide page. Once you have an idea of the costs involved, it would be best to contact us to arrange the first phase having your vehicle wrapped.

The first phase is to get accurate measurements for the vehicle, or vehicles that are going to be wrapped. Once we have those measurements, we shall then be able to move to the production phase, where the graphic design is printed and then laminated, making sure that the vinyl is then protected against abrasions and UV rays that can cause graphics to phase over time.

The third phase is when we apply the vinyl wrapping to your car in Essex, or where ever you’re based in Essex: Grays, Chelmsford, Basildon, Harlow, Braintree, Brentwood, Pitsea, Horndon, Canvey Island, We’ll even consider becoming a mobile operational team and come to you!

There are instances whereby we have to remove the vinyl wrap because the graphics were only ever meant to be a temporary design, therefore that would be the fourth phase.

Where Will The Vehicle Wrapping Take Place?

Once you have spoken to us and we’ve gone through the specifics of the design and time involved putting a wrap on your car or van, we will then look to book your vehicle into our Essex based workshop in Grays. Our qualified vehicle wrapping installers will then use the latest technology to undertake the wrapping of your car or van.

Are There Differences Between Partial And a Full Wrap?

If you do not plan on having your entire car wrapped, leaving any original paint, exposed, then you will be having a partial wrap it is only when you have the entire car wrapped that it is considered a full wrap. However, please bear in mind that most cases the roof is not wrapped and if you want the roof of your vehicle wrapped there will be an additional fee.

How Long Will The Wrap Stay on My Vehicle?

Although this can vary, we generally see our the vinyl wraps that we’ve added to vehicles in Essex stay on our client’s vehicle for anywhere between one to five years, before they remove the wrapping.

Can A Wrap Damage My Vehicles Paint?

If the vehicle that you want to be wrapped has been painted using factory standard paint, then our wrapping will not cause any damage to the original vehicle paintwork.

If, however, your vehicle has been painted using chipping paint, then the wrap could pull the chipping paint off the vehicle when and if the vinyl wrapping is removed.

Do I have to Wash My Vehicle Before The Wrap Is Installed?

In short, yes. We recommend that you have your car cleaned to be free of any dirt, dust, wax, oil, and other agents that might prevent the vinyl from sticking to the vehicle during the installation process.

We do run our own inspection of the vehicle and cleaning prior to beginning the wrapping process.

How Long Will The Wrapping Take?

On average, we’re able to wrap a vehicle such as a medium sized car or small van in approximately two days.

If My Vehicle Is Leased, Can I Wrap It?

If you’re currently renting or leasing a vehicle, you will need to obtain written permission that you are allowed to wrap their vehicle. However, you will find that most lease vehicles have been painted in factory standard paint and therefore any wraps can easily be removed when the car is due back to the leasing company without any damage to the paintwork. You’ll find that the wrap has actually helped preserve the paintwork.

Can The Cost of Essex Car Wrapping In Essex Be Justified?

Absolutely! When you consider the cost of the alternative way of advertising, there is no more cost-effective method of advertising available if you’re using your vehicle as signage. It has been proven that the cost per impression (CPI) of using your wrapped vehicle for advertising is less than other forms of advertising, such as radio, television, billboards and the Yellow pages.

Also, remember that a wrapped vehicle can improve the appearance of an older car, and it appears the appearance for more than the traditional painting methods such as paint and airbrushing.

Can I See Through My Windows When My Car Is Wrapped?

If you decide to cover the whole of your car, you might be tempted to have your windows also covered. When we cover windows we use graphics that are printed on perforated window film. Perforated window film has very small holes that allow the driver and passengers to see out of the windows, but when looking at the car from an external perspective as the pedestrians would they will only see the graphics.

Will I Have Any Bubbles Or Wrinkles When The Wrapping Is Completed?

When we conduct a full vehicle wrap there is likely to be occasional wrinkles or bubbles. Although there are many advanced techniques available to our professional wrappers when they wrap a vehicle, it is almost impossible to reduce the wrapping imperfections to zero. This is due to wrinkles developing on cars that severely concave or rounded surfaces, on a perfectly square car there would be no bubbles or wrinkles.

What Warranty Does 1st Call Signage Offer on Car Wraps?

If you see any defective panels on your wrapped car within the first year, we shall replace them with no charge. If the car is involved in a car accident, then we shall be able to replace any panels, but you or your insurance company will have to pay for the cost.

We are unable to provide any warranty for wraps that are on small curved channels, wraps that have been done on plastic, rubber, silicone or on chrome areas as the vinyl material is not meant for these specific surfaces.

We believe our work is of a high quality and will, therefore, give you and your vehicle full attention
