Here are a few common myths about car wraps.

Car wraps and graphics are a great way to advertise your business and get people talking about your company. Many businesses have gained many new customers using vehicle wraps to advertise. With the correct information on your vehicle wraps, you can effectively promote your brand. Wraps are one of the most effective and affordable ways to increase brand awareness. However, with all new innovative marketing techniques, some myths and misconceptions are bound to come up. To make an informed decision and protect your investments, you first need to know which information to believe and which myths to dismiss. Here are a few common myths about car wraps.

You Can’t Wrap a Leased Car

It is common for small businesses to lease vehicles for their fleets because it is more affordable. A common misconception is that you can not wrap a leased car because you technically do not own it. However, this myth is not true. You can wrap a leased or rented vehicle, just be sure to check with the rental company first and always read your lease agreement carefully.

Wraps Damage Paint

On the contrary, a vehicle wrap can protect your paint.  If the paint is in good condition, a vehicle wrap will prevent exposure to UV rays, abrasions from dirt, scratches, and other environmental elements. As long as you follow proper installation and removal instructions, your paint will remain unharmed.

It’s Dangerous to Put Graphics on Windows

While solid vinyl graphics will block your view, this is not what should be applied to your windows. If you choose to install window graphics on your vehicle, the type of material used would be a perforated window film. Perforated window films are entirely safe to apply to vehicle windows as you can see through them from the inside out.

Car Wraps are Hard to Remove

Vehicle wraps are designed to be removable. However, wrap installation companies install vinyl wraps so that they can be removed just as effectively. With just the right amount of directly applied heat, the vinyl wrap should lift cleanly away from the vehicle when it is time for removal.

Car Wraps Don’t Last Long

A properly installed and well-maintained vehicle wrap can last anywhere from 5 – 7 years. Of course, the lifespan of your wrap will vary based on how much you care for your vehicle. If you have concerns about the length of time a wrap will last, consult with your local vehicle wrapping company about the materials they use and the length of time they recommend you keep your wrap on.
