Frequently Asked Questions

What is a car wrap? Is it paint?

A car wrap is a hi-tech vinyl covering that is adhered directly to your car. The application is so precise, it is often mistaken for a custom paint job.

Can you wrap trailers, trucks, vans & SUV's?

Absolutely! If it rolls, flies or floats, we can wrap it! Vehicle applications include but are not limited to:

How long do Vehicle Wraps last?

Our 3m certified graphics are warranted for 7 years and the 3m window material is warranted for 5 years. There are other fine materials available from Avery, Flexcon and Oracal that carry warranties that vary from 1 to 7 years depending on your needs.

Why should I use Car Wraps as opposed to painted or vinyl lettering?

Applying paint decreases your car's value. The same applies for vinyl lettering which can cause 'fading' or 'shadowing' to the original paint. In addition, a car wrap looks so much more stunning and appealing.

What happens when the graphics are removed?

In both application and removal of Vehicle Wraps, the key is working with an experienced installer. Rollin Wraps rarely experiences any problems with paint removal, especially with newer vehicles. If your vehicle is in good condition and has no prior repainting or touch-up painting Rollin Wraps does not foresee any problems when the graphics are removed. Older or repainted vehicles may exhibit some damage to the paint upon removal of the graphics. It is still important to realize that paint issues upon removal from wrapped passenger vehicles, SUV's and other fleet applications are not covered by warranty.

Does it matter what color my car is?

No, a car wrap is not translucent; you cannot see through it.

Who designs what the actual vehicle will look like?

Rollin Wraps employs expert designers who can create a complete design for your vehicle or if you prefer we can work with your designer to produce the graphics that we apply. This allows us to provide your graphics cost effectively whichever way you choose to provide them. We have an extensive library of computer templates for vehicles, which takes the guesswork out of your design. Our staff of production artists is educated with all the latest computer design programs, allowing us to produce accurate color and details that reflect your design.

What is the difference between Vector and Bitmap artwork?

Vector Art is key for many print projects. The best choice for logos and other line art is a VECTOR .eps file (encapsulated postscript). Eps files are typically generated from vector based programs such as Adobe Illustrator, Freehand or CorelDraw. Eps files are fully scalable and are not susceptible to distortion. Also, colors are easily specified in vector programs, which comes in handy if your project is going to be produced with spot colors. Since the art is made from a series of mathematical curves, it will print very crisp even when resized. For instance one can take the same vector logo and print it on a business card, and then enlarge it to billboard size and keep the same crisp quality. A bitmap graphic would blur incredibly if it were enlarged from business card size to billboard size. File names for vector images usually have extensions such as .eps, .ai or .dwg.

Vector files are more suitable for illustrations that require precise measurements. They are also easily scalable due to their mathematical nature. However, the vector-based file format has its drawbacks as well. It is not good for displaying photo-realistic images such as a photograph because images of this type generally do not contain well-defined shapes and curves.

Bitmap Art, on the other hand, does not rely on mathematical formulas to define their various elements. Each bitmap image is mapped into a grid. The size of the grid is based on the image's resolution. A bitmap image is like a mosaic of pixels with each pixel holding a specific color value.

Bitmap files are more suitable for photo-realistic images that require complex color variations. They are, however, not easily scalable because each bitmap image is mapped to a non-flexible grid. If a bitmap image were to be enlarged, it would lose its sharpness. All edges within the image would appear to be jagged. File names for bitmap images usually consist of extensions such as .psd, .jpg, gif, .tif, or .bmp.

It looks like there are graphics on the windows, will I still be able to see through the windows?

Yes the window graphics are printed on a perforated vinyl that allows you to see through the rear and side rear windows.

Do you wrap the front side windows?

No, state laws prohibit the use of wraps on driver and passenger side windows, as well as the windshield.

Do you wrap the roof?

On most, smaller vehicles the roof is included. Generally, we do not wrap roofs on larger vehicles (vans, trucks or SUV's), unless it is requested by the customer.

Can you wrap a fiberglass bumper?

We can wrap a plastic or fiberglass bumper, however it is not recommended or guaranteed to adhere for the duration of the life of your car wrap.

Can you wrap my hubcaps or rims?

No, we do not wrap any part of the wheel. We offer additional alternatives to wrapping, however. Visit our sister site for more information.

What if I plan to change my company logo or phone number in the future?

No problem! We can print logos, phone numbers, web sites etc. as overlays on the car wrap, so that they may be removed and replaced if you have new information.

Does Car Wraps have a payment plan?

No, but we do accept major credit cards and checks.

Will my company pay for my car wrap?

Many companies will pay for, or reimburse you for your car wrap. Most companies realize the advantage of investing in such a cost-effective form of advertising. You can request that we speak directly to them, or request information to be sent to them.
