Full vehicle wraps are what we specialize in here at Stick It Graphics Vehicle Wraps.  A  full wrap is when we cover the four sides (in some cases, the top as well) of your vehicle or trailer with a printed or color change vinyl coating.   The process to properly wrap a vehicle starts with a clean wrap ready surface.

  1. PRE WRAP PREPARATION "Only as strong as your weakest link"

    The importance of a Wrap Ready Surface
    - In order for vinyl to properly adhere to your vehicle or item, the surface should be clean of any loose materials, rust, dirt, sap, wax, silicone or any other non-paint areas.  Vinyl will adhere to bare metal but the manufacturer doesn't always suggest doing so.  The optimum surface to apply wrap to is a clean and dirt/grease free enamel or oil base painted surface. Latex paint is OK if the item being wrapped is a mural wall or something that will not be exposed to the outside elements. But if the paint is not in the best of condition, you run the risk of the paint being lifted off the item in spots during the installation process and this can leave air pockets that will not be able to be repaired.  The reason is that as we are applying the vinyl, we have to semi stick the vinyl to the surface and reposition it as we go.  This means we are lifting the vinyl back up in many areas and if the paint is weak, it will come up when we are repositioning the vinyl.  The paint chip is now stuck to the back of the vinyl and this will make that area of the vinyl unable to be redheaded anywhere else.  The only way to fix this would be a patch or reprinting a new piece of vinyl at the customers cost.  So if you are pre prepping the item we are wrapping, please be sure to have all loose paint removed ahead of time.  

    Once again, if the surface we are applying the vinyl to is ever to lift or peel, then the vinyl will lift and bubble in that area along with it.  Vinyl wrap will not stop paint or clear cot from pealing and it won't cover deep scathes and chipped paint.  

  2. ​Application and materials - Stick It Graphics vehicle Wraps is NOT a sign shop or a automotive speed shop doing wraps as a sideline offering.  We ONLY deal in vehicle wraps and because of that, we will always deliver better quality and service to our customers.  Dealing with any other shop thats not 100% all wraps is like going to a regular family doctor when you require brain surgery.  When what you are wrapping is important to the health of your business, you want to see a specialist.  We are vehicle wrap specialist and it shows in our work as well as our reputation.  You may get a lower price from those other guys, but you will also receive a lower quality result.  

    We only use the highest quality vehicle wrap for your project.  Keep in mind that some shops will dazzle you with brand names that you may be familiar with but keep in mind that mercedes biz also offers a "C" class model that bears the Mercedes name but lacks all the quality.  We actually stand by all of our materials and installs for 5 years with our 5 year free 
    maintenance plan.  The 5 year guarantee most other shops speak of is only the fact that you can safely remove the vinyl in 5 years.

  3. How do our wraps hold up?   Here is a picture of a wrap we did over 6 years ago!  No lifting, no fading, no bubbles!!  Because of a professional prep and install as well as using only the highest end vehicle wrap vinyl and laminate!
