What is a Wrap?
The process involves covering the whole exterior of a vehicle in a thin, malleable, adhesive vinyl that can change the color and finish of cars, trucks, boats, trailers, walls, floors, furniture, laptops or just about any surface.
Once the vinyl has been positioned and applied, it is trimmed and cut away from around the windows, door jams, panel gaps and trim details. It is then thoroughly stuck down onto the paintwork by working out any trapped air from underneath the vinyl with a soft squeegee and using a heat gun to help it adhere and to the contours of the vehicle.
At Gaslight Vinyl we specialize in the Design, Print, and Installation of all types of vehicle graphics.
What is the Vehicle Wrapping Process?
1. Contact Us
The best way to get started is to contact us by phone, email, or stop by our studio. We like to discuss your design ideas and we may need photos or measurements of your vehicle before we are able to offer an accurate estimate.
Once we have the information we need we'll send you an estimate for the total cost of your wrap. This is an ESTIMATE for the design, print, and installation of your graphics based on initial measurements and vinyl choices. If your job gets bigger. The price gets bigger.
When the estimate has been approved a 50% deposit is required BEFORE we start your wrap design/layout.
4. Design & Print
After email instruction, or a scheduled consultation, we will begin the design and layout of your graphics. A proof will be emailed within one week of deposit. You'll review your proof and call or email with feedback. We'll make revisions and resend. We repeat this process until we reach final approval on design, at which time we'll prepare your graphics for production.
We will call to schedule your installation as soon as your design is approved. Depending on the volume of business we may be booked for up to 3 weeks. Please note: we WILL NOT schedule your wrap before your final design is approved.
6. Prep & Installation
Thoroughly wash your vehicle 2 days before your scheduled installation. Unwashed vehicles will be charged a MINIMUM $75.00 cleaning fee. When your vehicle has been dropped off it will be inspected. Any dents, scratches, blemishes in the paint, etc. will be brought to your attention before installation begins.
7. How Long Does It Take?
We prioritize quality over speed. Installation times vary according to the complexity of the project. For a full vinyl wrap, we typically ask for a minimum of 2 days. Additional time may be required for larger vehicles or if we are removing old graphics/vinyl. Smaller jobs like roofs, hoods, etc. typically take one day.
