Automotive Colour Changing Wrap
The Vinyl Corporation have been at the Vanguard of Vehicle customising and decoration for over Thirty Years! during that time the market has witnessed many changes – some brought about by creative individuals and some by technological advances, clearly the “Digital Printing Revolution” was a major factor in the automotive styling evolution, as thirty years ago a screen printed graduated fader stripe between the wheel arches with a thermal die cut name badge inserted in a pinstripe design along the top swage line of the bodywork was considered to be the height of sophistication ( but that was 1980’s styling!) Now at The Vinyl Corporation salesdesk we are asked on a daily basis “Which is the best wrapping film to use for a full colour change?” or “Can you recommend the best Chrome wrapping foil for my client?” so all very individual and these products can be applied and mixed and matched in many different ways to appeal to the creative auto-stylists and wrappers out there.
Which Colour Changing Vinyl Film to Choose?
When undertaking a full vehicle wrap, preparation and ease of use are two of the main considerations – for the knowledge and process of wrapping please refer to our earlier Blog, where best methods are discussed. But thorough preparation with AVERY SURFACE CLEANER is always a great starting point, having approved and planned out the design, colours and effects to be created the material selection is critical in acheiving the best outcome, so balancing the client’s expectations of desired results with cost of fulfilling those ambitions the Quality and range of vinyl film can be recommended, most professional wrap film installers today request an Air Release, Bubble free, Easy Apply, Air Egress, Rapid Air, Air Escape, Bubble x-it,Blister Free, Micro Channeled Adhesive whatever the particular manufacturer describes the channeling to allow trapped air to be driven out from behind the film, this has made “Dry applications” standard practice, with a huge time saving and better-finished result, so which Brand of vinyl can the professional installer rely upon to deliver consistently good results? Avery Supreme Wrapping Film has always been the “Benchmark” vinyl film, there are other choices, some probably a more economical choice, but for quality, consistency and delivery at the point of installation The Vinyl Corporation will always advise and steer clients towards the AVERY VINYL range, whether it is for colour selection, special effects or ease of use.
