4 Steps to a Vehicle wrap:
There are just 4 easy steps from start to finish to getting your vehicle wrapped.
1. Designing- Artwork is one of the key components that make up an effective wrap. We use high-resolution photographs and graphics to ensure we produce a clean and vibrant final product. If you already have artwork and it meets the necessary requirements, we can go straight to the next step. If not, we have a team of skilled graphic designers that can take your idea and make it into a reality. We specialize in clean and effective designs that clearly portray your message.
2. Proofing- Once the design is set up, we email you a digital proof. Once you’re happy with the layout we do a full color print out on the material that is going on the vehicle so you can see exactly how the colors and design will look. We have you come in and approve this. Once approved, it’s sent to print!
3. Production- We begin this step by printing on 3M premium vinyl and using Water Based HP inks on a high resolution, HP wide format printer. We then use a 3M laminate to get that glossy finish and extra protection from UV rays and abrasion. With all three matched components, vinyl, inks and laminate we are able to ensure you with a 3M Performance Guarantee and MCS Warranty against peeling, cracking and fading. You are also backed by the first 3M certified installation team in Southeast Virginia, because of our commitment to quality 3M backs us for a year of that warranty.
4. Installation- DeSigns Inc is one the only 3M certified installers in Southeast Virginia. We strictly follow the stringent guidelines set by 3M, who is the leading manufacturer in vehicle wrap materials. Our proper preparation of the vehicle includes several cleaning steps to provide a perfect surface for application. When covering complex curves and contours, we use special techniques, including heating and stretching the film. Installation takes place in our climate controlled bay garage that can fit anything street legal. All the right steps are followed to ensure you get a long lasting and professional product.
The vinyl that is applied to the windows of the vehicle, carries a warranty not to fade, crack or peel for up to a year. Since window perf still allows you to be able to see out of the windows, but still convey your message clearly on the outside of the glass. It has up to 50% of the adhesive and vinyl punched out, this also makes the adhesion level less. There is no set time line for window graphics, in some cases it can last up to 5 years. The vinyl that is applied to painted areas of the vehicle is a Premium Cast 8 year film. Which we Guarantee for the first 3 years.
The life of a wrap is affected by location of vehicle, weather conditions and overall care of the vehicle wrap. DeSigns Inc. has vehicles that we lettered over ten years ago that are still on the road today and look great. Get more mileage out of your vehicle wrap with proper care. Proper care and maintenance will help you get more mileage out of your investment and will help the warranty remain in place. For best results, clean wraps the old fashioned way–with a bucket of soapy water and a low-pressure hose. Avoid brush, cloth- and high-pressure washes, as the abrasion and blasting can cause vinyl sheets to lift, peel and separate. Improper care will affect your warranty.
