What is car wrapping and how much does a vinyl wrap car cost?
First off, let me tell you what a car wrap essentially is? It’s wrapping the entire outer body of your car with a material specifically made for vehicles.
Most people who have their car wrapped do it for reasons such as advertising and marketing, protecting the original paint job or to give their car a new look and finish.
The material used in car wrapping is called a vinyl.
Each panel of vinyl is applied individually to cover the entire outer body of the vehicle, so remember if there was an accident and your vehicle needed a touch up this will be much easier to restore. This process is, what is known as car or vehicle wrapping.
The beauty about car wrapping is your vehicle can be transformed to what ever image or design you want it to look like, while preserving the original body.
