Truck wraps are large scale vinyl decals or graphics that fit over all or most of the entirety of a truck of vehicle. They cover vehicles in a way that looks like paint, but is removable and replaceable if necessary.
Truck wraps are primarily for branding and marketing. They are designed to turn a truck on the road into a rolling advertisement, or to brand a truck with the logo of the trucking company so that the vehicle is clearly labeled. Both truck wraps and vehicle wraps are primarily used by businesses, but some individuals have been known to decorate their cars with wraps so that they can have a unique looking vehicle without a detailed paint job.
No. Truck wraps are not known to cause any paint damage. In fact, they may be able to provide some light protection for paint, because they cover the paint in a very thin protective barrier.
Vinyl can be fragile, but most vehicle wraps are made to last. The average lifespan for a well cared for truck-wrap is about 2 years, with some lasting as long as 4. Vehicle wraps can become damaged by the elements, as well as any forced contact (such as an accident) but they are otherwise a very long lasting type of sign.
You can, but it’s not recommended. The jet streams from the wash may lift or damage the vinyl, and many of them are equipped with brushes that could scratch it and cause long term damage. Hand washing or using a light stream of water is the best way to clean a vehicle with a wrap.
It is recommended that you allow the professionals at Signs NY to handle installation and removal of your vehicle wraps, as these truck wraps need to be installed perfectly or they risk warping, bubbles, and other issues.
Luckily, most forms of damage to truck wraps can be repaired with smaller pieces of vinyl. You do not generally need to create an entire new wrap if you’ve damaged your truck wrap. For more significant forms of damage, a replacement may be necessary. We’ll help make sure that you can keep your truck wraps as long as possible.
This is a difficult question to answer, because trucks come in all shapes and sizes, and not all trucks require a full wrap. The average cost of a large truck wrap is between $1500 and $3000, but this depends on many factors including the amount of the truck being covered, whether there are any special features of the truck (such as curves) that need to be accounted for with installation, and more.
