Is A Car Wrap Easy to Remove?

Posted on February 17, 2017 at 11:25 pm

Although a car wrap may appear to be difficult to remove, the process will not damage your car as long as the wrap is not left on too long (5 years in most cases). 

Also, if you want to remove a car wrap right after your car is painted, you should wait at least three weeks. In all other cases, your wrap can be removed without damage to the paint.

Wrap removal entails three phases, or heat, detailing, and clean-up. The heat phase of the removal process basically involves using a blow torch in most cases. The technician begins at a seam or edge until the vinyl car wrap is lightly heated with the flame. The auto wrap is then pulled from the vehicle. After most of the vinyl wrap is removed, phase two, or detailing, is undertaken to remove the remaining, or smaller pieces of the wrap.

Generally, films with low-tack or changeable adhesive can be removed without the use of heat for a specific time period. For any 3M™ vinyl car wraps that require heat, the heat is normally applied at a low angle to prevent splitting of the adhesive. Surfaces are then reheated as needed.

Phase three of the removal process involves using a specialized solvent to remove the adhesive and remaining residue. In many cases, the heat application in phase one has already dissolved most of the glue. Once this step is accomplished, your car will be as shiny and clean as the day when it was originally wrapped.

Fortunately, a car wrap is entirely reversible and will not ruin an OEM manufacturer’s paint job. In fact, some lease companies like to wrap your car as the covering protects the finish from the sun’s harmful UV rays, which causes the paint to fade. The wrap also keeps the car free of nicks or scratches. While you can remove a wrap yourself, it is better to leave the job to professional wrap technicians.

How to Enhance Your Food Truck Brand

Posted on January 29, 2017 at 10:50 pm

Food trucks that make profits are colourful and attract attention. Because the industry is becoming increasingly competitive, you need to ensure you stand out. In order to differentiate your look and attract new customers then, you need to install a vinyl truck wrap with a professionally designed logo and appealing colors.

The right truck wrap will ensure that you do not get lost among your competitors.

After all, the first thing that draws a customer to a food truck is its appearance. So, if your truck is standing among other food trucks, you want to create the right impression. That means incorporating a design that is as customer-friendly as it is practical.

Make Sure You Are Properly Branded

For example, if you regularly appear at food truck festivals, you may be getting lots of business. However, if you are not branding yourself correctly, you won’t see all those “satisfied” customers return a second time.

Therefore, a vinyl truck wrap is the best way to enhance your brand recognition among your base of customers. You may offer a delicious menu. However, if your customers cannot remember your truck, you won’t be guaranteed a continual revenue stream.

 A Cost-effective Method of Communications

That is because a truck wrap serves as your brand’s value proposition and voice. Therefore, wraps are the most cost-effective method for communicating your message locally. Plus, you have a number of options for wrapping your truck. You can even add a white board wrap to display your menu on the outside of your truck.

In order to enhance your food truck brand then, make sure the design you choose for a truck wrap reflects your business’s intended image. A wrap generates thousands of impressions each day. So, you want the impression that is created to be both valuable and distinct.

A Quick Way to Send Your Message

In fact, a properly developed wrap generates between 30,000 and 70,000 impressions per day in urban locales. So, you cannot take the design lightly. According to statistics, you can build name recognition for your food truck 15 times faster than similar forms of billboard-type advertising.

Your truck wrap will protect your vehicle from the rays of the sun and therefore, keep the paint well-preserved and from fading on your truck. The message your wrap conveys can also keep your business from fading from the memories of people who see your truck, whether it is parked or in-transit in your community.

How to Get Your Truck and Brand Noticed

In order to underscore your food truck image then, you have to think big, if not progressive. If possible, choose a full body or partial wrap that displays bold colors that tie into your branding. This type of approach gets both your truck and brand noticed. You might also think about adding your logo and contact details to other vehicles that are personally owned. This way, you will instantly form a fleet for your business.

When wrapping the truck, don’t forget to wrap the roof. This addition is especially important in cities with tall buildings or skyscrapers. Place your social media name and website address on the roof so office workers will see and remember the information.

Also, place your social media account next to the logo on your platform. Include your website address and Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram account names – all which make it easy for customers to establish a rapport.

Placement of Your Company Information is Important

In addition, make sure that your company’s name and logo, plus key information, can be easily seen when your service window is both opened and closed. After all, it rather defeats the purpose of the wrap if people only see the message when the service window is closed.

A truck wrap can assist you in reaching virtually any demographic. So, use the information above to make full use of this popular form of advertising.

Insurance and Your Vehicle Wrap – What You Need to Know

Posted on January 9, 2017 at 8:47 am

Sprinter Wraps by CanawrapUsually, most insurance carriers will cover the 3M vinyl wrap on your vehicle. Therefore, let your insurance company know about the installation. You will need to provide an invoice that shows the worth of the car wrap, the kinds of materials used, and the date on which the car or truck was wrapped. Obtain all the information you need from the car wrapping company.

Car Wraps Are Just Like Other Updates

In actuality, a car wrap is not any different than including a custom modification or adding aftermarket parts to your truck or car. Some of these customization’s or updates include:

  • Changes to the audio system in your car
  • The addition of chrome to the chassis
  • The installation of leather upholstery
  • Modifications to the engine
  • Fuel saver modifications for better energy efficiency
  • Custom bumpers or rear spoilers

 

What You Should Tell Your Agent

Just like the above enhancements, a car wrap can be added to an insurance policy. Besides including a detailed invoice for the car wrap, also let your agent know how long you plan to keep the wrap. For instance, if you plan on keeping your vinyl wrap for the length of your vehicle loan, then notify your agent. Also, let the insurance company know that the wrap on your vehicle, is entirely removable and is made to protect and preserve the paint.
If you are using vehicle wraps to brand your business on a fleet of vehicles, you need to make sure the auto insurance company adds the investment to your company’s auto coverage policy. Make sure the wraps are applied by experts in the field, who also carry their own liability insurance.

Take Photos for Your Files

Once your vehicle is wrapped, take photographs of the car, and keep the photos in a safe place with the original invoice. You may also want to provide a copy of the photos to your insurance company so they can be used for a pre-repair estimate, if it occurs.
