We get this question a lot. Wrapping a vehicle can be a perplexing thought until you see the process in action. It’s hard to perceive how you can take a flat rectangular piece of vinyl and fit it to the various contours of any given vehicle.
First and foremost, you do need an experienced installer to apply the graphics. Ben Reposa is our lead installer in the Timely Wraps division at Timely Signs, check out this video of Ben wrapping a Toyota Prius hatchback for the Village Apothecary!
The second key is all in the vinyl…wrap vinyl. This material has special air-egress channels within the adhesive that allows any trapped air to easily escape. For the sake of explanation, it’s like a game of Plinko. Think of the pegs on the board as the adhesive and the space between the pegs as the air channels. The air moves around the empty space like the Plinko chip moves around the board until it finds its way out. This special type of adhesive also allows the installer to lift up the applied vinyl and reposition it until they get it where they want it to be.
The other secret to wrapping a vehicle is heat. Wrap vinyl can stretch around complex curves with a little persuasion from a blow torch but you need to be careful not to burn right through the material.
Lastly, no wrap is useful unless it has well-designed graphics. Here at Timely Signs, we strive to achieve this with the use of various elements and design techniques that set us apart from the rest of the crowd. Let us show you what we can do!
