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.”
Whether you get your vinyl graphics from us or you have purchased a kit elsewhere, you can trust our installation professionals to get your vehicle graphics installed properly so that they look great and last. Contact Signs for Success to get a free quote on striping or decal installation.
