Vehicle Wraps l Matte black is where its at!

 

The first time I saw an autowrap in matte black vehicle I was in LA a few years ago.  I have to admit that at the time I really wondered why anyone would cover the beautiful paint of a Ferrari.

So why wrap your car rather than repaint it?  There are actually a couple of really good reasons. Firstly, the cost of a wrap is likely to be up to 1/3 to 1/5th of the cost of repainting your vehicle in matte black.

More importantly,  Vehicle Wrapping can be removed if styles change or if your vehicle is leased.  Your paint will have been protected for the entire time it was covered.

Technology has advanced to the point where matte vehicle films are as good as they get.  Today's wide format printing means that most seams can be eliminated.

As with all wraps, a quality installation is critical for both appearance and the long-term durability of your wrap.  All body moldings, trim, and other accessories should be removed from the vehicle prior to beginning the installation.  This will prevent paint lines from showing through the wrap.

The first matte vehicle wraps were on exotic cars such as Ferraris and Lamborginis.  Today they are on everything from Civics and Mustangs to exotics.
