Does Your Vehicle Wrap Need Replacement?

If you take care of it, your vehicle wrap will have a great lifespan. You can expect it to last anywhere from five to seven years, or perhaps even longer. In all that time, your vinyl wrap will protect your vehicle’s coat of paint, and—if you have a fleet wrap—work to advertise your business. But, like all good things, vehicle wraps do lose their luster eventually. Here are some signs that it’s time for a replacement.

Does Your Vehicle Wrap Need Replacement?

Has your vehicle wrap seen better days? Here are some signs it’s time for a replacement.


If you notice small bubbles forming under vehicle wrap, this is not usually a sign of age. In fact, this means that your wrap was improperly installed.

Professionals do not allow air to exist under the vinyl during the installation process. If you return it to the place where you had it installed, they ought to replace the wrap for you. But if you’d like to avoid another faulty car wrap, have us work on your car.


You probably don’t think too much about how light tends to fade color. This is something homeowners and owners of vehicle wraps both should be aware of. If you’re a homeowner, you should know that direct sunlight can fade your furniture and damage artwork.

If you have a vehicle wrap, years of direct sunlight will cause the design to fade. Chances are that you haven’t noticed this change, because it’s extremely subtle and takes place over a long period of time. But if you think your wrap isn’t as vibrant as it used to be, you probably aren’t imagining it.

It Doesn’t Apply to Your Business Anymore

This one doesn’t apply to personal vehicle wraps, but this is one of the most common reasons that fleet wraps need replacement. Sometimes, there is nothing wrong with the wrap per se, but it’s no longer as relevant to your business.

Perhaps you had advertised a special that your business no longer offers, or you’ve recently gone through a major rebranding. This is one reason we encourage people to select designs that aren’t likely to change soon in our design tips for fleet wraps. But sometimes changes occur you can’t anticipate. If that’s the case, we can help you with your vehicle wrap replacement.

You Aren’t Happy with It

Sometimes, you just aren’t happy with the look of your car wrap for a reason that’s difficult to put into words. If that’s the case, the best thing you can do is to come up with a design that you know you’ll love for years to come. If this applies to you, we can help you come up with the perfect design, and install it professionally.
