Vehicle Wrap Installation Simplified with Knifeless Tape

Vehicle Wrap installation using knifeless tape

Signs for Success installer using knifeless tape

Vehicle wrap installation is one of our specialties. Ever since we saw this tool at the Las Vegas trade show in the summer of 2012, it’s been a permanent addition to our installer’s tool kit.  Knifeless tape is an answer to a challenge that all vehicle wrap installation installers face: cutting on paint.  The Knifeless Tech System not only makes installation safer and more accurate, but it also saves time, therefore saving both the installer and customer money.  Here are 3 reasons why we love using knifeless tape:

  1. 1. Knifeless tape replaces the need to use a blade directly on a vehicle when doing a full or partial vehicle wrap installation.  “Traditionally, you would have to use a blade to contour cut vinyl along body lines.  The knifeless tape eliminates the possibility of cutting the vinyl too deep and scratching the paint,” Signs for Success Vehicle Wrap Installer Rich Wilke explained.

Knifeless tape has a high strength filament, or thread, embedded in the center of the tape.  To use the tape, you apply the tape directly to the vehicle where cuts will be made, then apply the vinyl graphics on top.  After the vinyl is applied, pulling the filament will create a perfect, smooth cut.

  1. Knifeless tape also allows for less error in cut lines.  “If you use a blade, you might get a little wiggle in your line,” Rich said.  3M says of their product, “The tape is extremely flexible and turns smoothly in any direction, conforming to even the tightest contours and edges of any surface it is applied to.  It can also be pulled straight, creating precise cut lines.”  It also makes matching body lines simple since you see the line before you actually cut.  If the line looks a little off, simply pull up the tape and reposition.  Any excess tape removes cleanly after the filament is pulled.
  2. Signs for Success Installer Chris Komski noted another benefit of using knifeless tape.  When doing an overlap, if you use a blade and cut too deep, you cut both layers.  Over time, the bottom layer will separate, revealing the body paint color underneath.  Using knifeless tape will cut only the top layer, keeping overlapping layers overlapped, making your vehicle wrap installation look better and last longer.

“We use knifeless tape whenever we can.  We used it on a motorcycle wrap and a boat wrap just last week,” Signs for Success Production Manager Denise Gillit said.  Bottom line, knifeless tape alleviates the need to use a knife directly on a vehicle wrap installation; it makes an install safe, fast and more accurate which translates to a better looking vehicle wrap at a better price!

At Signs for Success we strive for the highest level of quality in our vehicle graphics, and our installation team has been through rigorous training as well as Avery Dennison car wrap certification.  “Car Wrap Certified” means installers have gone through extensive training on the proper methods to prepare, size, cut and apply graphics to vehicles.  Although compared to full car wraps, vehicle striping or decal installation may seem like a simple process, the precise nature of one or more straight pieces of material over a non-straight surface actually presents a fair challenge.

We often use knifeless tape, or “cut tape,” when working with visual lines on a vehicle body.  Since the body is never flat or square, we lay the repositionable knifeless tape along the line and double and triple check it before applying vinyl graphics over the tape.

Matte black striping on this ’68 Dodge Charger required eight individual knifeless tape strips to create the four stripes on the rear.  “Laying them all down and keeping eight strips parallel was a bit of a challenge,” Signs for Success vehicle graphics installer Chris Komski said.  Once the tape is lined up perfectly, the rest of the process is pretty simple.  “After all the cut tape lines are laid down, you apply the color change vinyl on top of that.  Then pull the string out of the cut tape, which cuts the vinyl; remove all the excess, heat down the vinyl and you are done.”

Suite signs for office building with stand-off mounts

How you mount a sign and what type of hardware you choose is a vital aspect to the overall look of the sign.  To get a modern, clean and professional look, go with stand-off mounts.

Stand-off mounts give a unique look to:

  • Office buildings
  • Doctor offices
  • Department and Retail stores
  • Grocery Stores, and more!

Through-grips hold signs firmly in place and make changing out signs simple.  If you prefer not to drill holes in the sign, edge grip brackets are ideal – they allow graphics to sit comfortably in the display channels.  If you have signage that’s already fixed to the wall with screws, standoff caps are the finishing touch.  Simply putting a silver or bronze cap on exposed screws gives a polished and professional look with minimal effort.

For most stand-off mounting projects, we use mono mounts, which is a two part system used to mount signs on almost any vertical or horizontal surface. Stand-off mounts can hold heavy, permanent signage without unattractive exposed screws.  In addition, they increase visual impact by offering a three-dimensional look.

Varying stand-off distances can be achieved according to customer preference, and mounting hardware is available in multiple sizes, colors and finishes.

General Sign Mounting

We supply many different types of sign hardware from hooks and chains to banner poles and real estate sign posts.  By considering what kind of sign you are mounting, whether it is a pole banner or a poster, you will be able to narrow down the long list of mounting hardware to what will best suit your needs.

Some signs require specific hanging hardware.  For example, pole banners come with a spring action pole and hardware specifically made to handle high winds.  Other signs merely require a few screws.  We can manufacture your sign with premade holes or grommets for easy hanging.  This hanging

method is frequently used for mounting safety signs, site signs, or traffic signs that are legally mandated.

Many other signs are easily hung with VHB Tape.  VHB Tape is sturdy enough for lightweight signs like posters, or for temporary signage where you don’t want to damage the mounting surface.

We love restoration projects and makeovers.  “Makeovers are one of the most enjoyable types of projects we do at Signs for Success,” Owner John Bogensberger said.  The transformation and final product is always fun to see.

One recent makeover was a wrap advertising project for a change machine.  Color change wraps and custom printed wraps can makeover almost anything, from trucks and boats to a beverage cooler – the customer chose a camouflage wrap for his man cave beverage cooler – or even a change machine.

“We created a wrap design to cover over an old change machine,” Signs for Success designer Will Oakley said.  “The design was made to match the theme of the customer’s restaurant.”  This custom wrap advertises birthday parties and mirrors the fun atmosphere of 5 Mile Heights Pizza.

Signs for Success printed the change machine graphics onto high performance wrap vinyl, then installed the vinyl onto the machine at our facility.  The brightly colored graphics are eye-catching, and they make the old machine look brand new!

How to Wrap a Change Machine

It’s easy.  First strip the old machine of any old graphics or decals, take off any parts that are easily removed, and clean the surface.  Next, place the wrap vinyl where you want it.  Begin smoothing out the vinyl.  If it looks good, go over the surface with a heat gun and smooth with a squeegee tool.  If it needs repositioning, pull up the vinyl, reposition, and repeat.  Use a sharp blade to cut extra vinyl off or to contour cut around handles, openings or other features.

We always recommend having a wrap professionally installed.  Our installers are Avery Car Wrap Certified, have been through rigorous training and testing, and have successfully installed hundreds of wraps.  We want you to get the most out of your wrap advertising, so we make sure the job is done right, and we can guarantee a longer lasting wrap.  Contact us for a free quote!
