The Nuts and Bolts of Car Wrapping.
In the last five to six years, the car wrap or auto restyling industry has grown exponentially. What started as the matte black craze has exploded to brushed metallics, chromes and an overabundance of solid matte, gloss, and metallic colors to choose from. But don’t be fooled by imposters. 3M and Avery are the industry leaders in this area. Their vinyl not only goes on flawlessly to produce a look thats almost paint-like, but it removes flawlessly as well.
3M and Avery didn’t just stop at cars! They have redefined the industry and have developed vinyls for almost any surface. Boats can now have a long lasting custom wrap for a fraction of what a custom gelcoat or paint job would cost. Murals for concrete exterior walls can be printed and wrapped in less than half the time it takes to paint the surface. Sidewalks, pavers, and asphalt can be turned into works of art in the blink of an eye.
Most applications can be produced to be permanent or removable without damaging most surfaces. Both 3M and Avery constantly strive to improve performance and finished product of their vinyl. While competitors cut corners trying to mimic their look at fractions of the cost.
Let’s face it you get what you pay for!
