Change Your Look with a Car Color Wrap

Mini Cooper Car Color Wrap

Mini Cooper Color Change Wrap

When you’re car shopping, it’s disappointing when the right deal finally comes along, but the color you want isn’t available.  Don’t despair –a car color wrap is the perfect solution.  A vinyl car color wrap can change the color and look of your vehicle without harming the original paint job or the value of the vehicle.  In fact, a full vinyl wrap protects the entire exterior of your vehicle from the elements and normal wear and tear while it is on.

We recently had a customer from Wenatchee, WA who had just such a dilemma.  They brought in a brand new blue mini cooper, but wanted to change the color to silver for their son.  If the right color isn’t available at the dealership, a car color wrap can give you the look you want.  We stock dozens of the most popular colors, including matte vinyl and other specialty vinyls.  The customer chose a matte metallic grey for the sleek, masculine look they were going for.

If you really want to customize your look, unique accents or racing stripes can be easily added over the top of the wrap.  We use the highest quality wrap materials that last several years and protect the entire exterior while it’s on.  Our high-performance wrapping film is laminated for added durability and applied to create a smooth paint-like finish.

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!

Dare to Compare! Paint Job vs Color Change Wrap

If you’ve decided to change the look of your vehicle, but are still unsure whether to go the traditional paint job route or the wrap route, here are some factors to consider:

How will it affect the value of my vehicle?

An aftermarket paint job devalues the vehicle.  This is an important consideration when making any permanent change to your car or truck.  A vinyl color change wrap, on the other hand, will protect your OEM paint from fading and other minor wear and tear.  When it’s time to remove the wrap, the adhesive comes off easily, leaving the original paint job intact.

How long will it last?

A paint job lasts 3-5 or more years, depending on the quality of the job, while a color change wrap or advertising wrap lasts 5-7 years.  As long as you go with a quality paint job, the lifetimes are comparable; however, keep in mind that a paint job is a permanent change.  When the wrap begins to show wear, you can have it removed to reveal a perfectly intact paint job.  No need to re-paint or re-wrap.

How much will it cost?

A professional paint job costs thousands of dollars with some estimates coming in around $5000.  There’s always the do-it-yourself route, but you may be sacrificing quality.  Better to let the professionals handle any investment that big!  On the other hand, a full color change wrap costs sustantially less depending on the type of vehicle.

Now get creative.

You’re not limited to one paint color.  Choose a texture or special effect, or choose an image that represents you.  Add matte or metallic stripes or effects or custom printing.  A vehicle wrap is completely customizable.

For color changes, we use Avery Supreme Wrapping Film, a high performance, pre-laminated vinyl.  Supreme Wrapping Film comes in hundreds of colors including matte colors, metallics, and textures.  We can also add custom graphics to a color change wrap to really make a statement.

Bottom line, investing in a new paint job is a big commitment, and although there’s nothing wrong with going that route, the color change wrap is useful for curbing some of the major commitment issues involved with a paint job.  In addition, a color change wrap saves money up front, retains value in the long run, and lasts just as long as a paint job while protecting your OEM paint.  Let our experienced design team help you come up with the perfect color or design for your vehicle.
