Little Rock Vehicle Wraps: Here Is What You Need To Know

When you get your vehicle wrapped Gametime Wraps will make sure you have all the knowledge you need to keep it looking fresh, and keep your vehicle safe. 

Thinking about getting your vehicle wrapped? Here are a few things you need to know. 

Vehicle wraps don’t stay on forever. 

Vehicle wraps are sometimes chosen over a paint job because the vehicle will eventually need to return to its original appearance. 

How long your wrap will last depends on several factors. A wrap will last the longest if it is kept out of the elements while not in use and properly cleaned when needed. The hot Arkansas sun will wear at the wrap. Summer and winter!

It is best if you have a garage to park the wrapped vehicle in. If not, a good car cover could be a great alternative. 

Sky’s the limit when it comes to designing a car wrap. 

The wrap is a series of decals placed on the panels of your vehicle. They’ll support any design, advertisement, color you like! The only limitations are keeping the lights and other essential operational features clear and your budget. 

Chrome and other metallic finishes are going to cost more than a more matte finish. You may also want to consult a designer that has done car wraps before. They’ll be able to tell you what your designs will look like once they are placed on a car.

Vehicle wraps can be used to preserve the original paint. 

Got a classic vehicle? You’ll want to protect the original color as best you can. A wrap will sit over the paint, protecting it from exposure to the elements. 

The only hesitation is the condition of the paint. A vehicle wrap can not be placed over peeling paint, rust, or scratches. 

Little maintenance is required. 

It is recommended that all vehicles with a wrap be washed by hand. Power washing could shorten the lifespan of your wrap, or even cause damage that needs to be replaced right away.  A good microfiber cloth and safe cleaner are all you need. 

Wrapped vehicles also need to be kept away from certain elements. They need to stay out of the sun as much as possible, even in the winter. In the winter, they need to stay clean of any salt put on the roads to prevent slipping.
