How to Prep Your Car for a Vehicle Wrap

Prepping your car for a vehicle wrap is simple and straightforward.

Vehicle wraps are a great way to promote your brand and express yourself through great graphic design. This mobile marketing doesn’t just communicate a brand, however–it also helps protect the paint job on your business vehicles and are an easy, low-maintenance way to make the most of your commercial graphics. There are tons of benefits to using vehicle wraps for your business, but once you’ve decided to utilize these graphics, you may be wondering what the next step is. Luckily, prepping your car for a vehicle wrap is simple and straightforward.

Choose the Right Material

Once you’ve decided on a well-designed, readable vehicle wrap that makes the most of your color scheme and logo, you’ll need to find the right vinyl adhesive to ensure your mobile signage will look great once applied to the vehicle. When you work with an experienced vinyl sign and wrap professional, they will be able to advise you on the best adhesive for your vehicle and graphic.

Prepare a Clean, Dry Surface

It’s important that the surface of your vehicle is completely clean for a smooth application and flawless look. While the usual soap and water is good for cleaning dirt and debris off your vehicle, you’ll want to make sure oil and wax is removed from the vehicle surface as well. There are plenty of solvents available on the market that will help remove this without damaging your vehicle, allowing you to smoothly apply your vehicle wrap and protect your paint job. An experienced vehicle wrap service will be able to advise you about these products and ensure your car is completely clean and dry before application to avoid bubbles, rips, or messy application.

Careful Application

Applying a vehicle wrap on your own can be tricky. After application, most vinyl will need to be heated over 60 degrees in order to give it the staying power necessary to stay adhered to your vehicle. Graphics professionals will be able to properly apply and heat your vehicle wrap in order to ensure it looks great and doesn’t bubble or rip. Plus, a professional will be able to give you tips on vehicle wrap maintenance and repair to help you keep your vehicle wrap looking great for a long time!
