What Is A Vehicle Wrap?
A wrap, besides being the single most effective way of advertising your brand, is a wide format digitally printed “sticker” that is methodically applied to the exterior of your vehicle giving the effect that the vehicle has come off the assembly line with a custom paint job that is marketing your brand and message.
In the past, most companies would have cut vinyl lettering applied to a vehicle; however with changing media(s) and printing capabilities what really gains attention in this multi-media world is either full or partial wrap graphics. Cut vinyl lettering alone is no longer as effective of a solution to marketing on a vehicle.
Are Car Wraps Removable or Will it Ruin My Paint?
In our years of experience, car wraps are completely harmless to vehicle paint and will not ruin your OEM manufacturers paint job. In fact, most lease companies prefer that you fully wrap your vehicle as soon as possible because the vehicle wrap protects your paint job from harmful UV rays, pebbles and scratches. You can remove the vehicle wrap on your own, however we do recommend that you have the work done by one of our professionals.
However, if the paint is not an OEM paint or is not in good condition (if it’s peeling, cracking, fading, oxidizing, etc. / is poorly applied / is not a quality automotive paint) then the wrap might not stick very well and it will not last for very long. In such cases when the paint is in poor condition, the vinyl peels off, and it peels the paint beneath it.
How Is Wrapping Applied?
A vehicle wrap is carefully measured and documented at the very beginning of the process to ensure that the custom design/output and application exactly match your vehicle the day it comes in for the installation.
Our craftsman, 3M-trained installation staff will then apply the pressure-sensitive media directly to the vehicle using squeegees and heat to mold the media around contours on the vehicle body. We ensure that no blades touch the paint of your vehicle and also the logos, lettering and imagery match exactly to your approved design.
Do You Offer A Warranty?
Yes! Saifee Signs offers a 4 years 3M MCS material warranties and 1 year labour/installation warranty on all of our car, truck, van and trailer wraps. This warranty will cover any issues that you have that are installation related as well as outline proper procedures to be followed by both customer and installer. Please note that some areas on the vehicle are covered longer than other areas, please contact a Canawrap customer service rep. for details.
We output all of our work on 3M print media and use the corresponding 3M over-laminate in-house. 3M provides extensive support for all of its media. Please follow this link to read more on the 3M media warranty.
How Much Does A Wrap Cost?
Wraps are priced using a combination of square footage, complexity and (if required) design services. An average full wrap on a vehicle can range from $2,000 to $4,500 depending on the amount of square footage and services required.

Why Get A Wrap?
Of course we offer cut lettering or magnets, but these forms of marketing are just falling to the side because the communication potential of a full vehicle wrap is border line untouchable by most other forms of media!
Wrapping IS bang for your buck!
The reason why you look around today and see so many big box retailers, medium sized companies and start-ups wrap their cars, trucks, trailers is because IT WORKS!
Vehicle wrapping has proven to be one of the very best ways to actually see a return on investment!
It is a thin vinyl film that adheres directly to a vehicle, very much like a sticker. This thin vinyl film conforms to the shape of the vehicle and is usually digitally printed with colorful graphics for advertising. When looked upon from a distance, a neat wrap gives the appearance of a quality custom paint job. The advantage is that wraps are a lot less expensive than custom jobs and can be removed very easily without damaging a vehicle surfaces.
Q: Can you see through the windows after the Wrap is applied? A: Yes. Perforated vinyl films called window perforations (or “window perfs”) have little holes in them and allow you to see outside from your car or truck windows. The window perforations can be applied on your back and rear windows on the sides.
Q: Can the driver side and passenger windows be wrapped? A: No. DOT laws do not allow us to wrap these windows.
Q: Do you wrap the roof? A: Yes and No. Yes, we can wrap windows on any vehicle. We wrap roofs for most small vehicles where the roof is visible. However, when it comes to wrapping big vehicles (SUVs, trucks, vans, bobtails), most customers decide not to cover the roof because it does not provide much advertising.
Q: Can unpainted vehicle surfaces like plastic parts and fiberglass bumpers be wrapped? A: Unpainted vehicle surfaces can be wrapped however it is not recommended. Vinyl adhesives do not stick very well to unpainted surfaces and so there is always a chance that the wrap will peel off from these areas.
Q: How is a Car Wrap better than a custom paint job? A: A Car Wrap is better than a paint job in many ways. The biggest advantages are cost savings, speed of production, removability, and better book value for your vehicle.
Car wraps cost a lot less than a custom paint job. Morever, it is a lot easier and faster to produce complex designs. A quality wrap can be designed and applied in less than 2 weeks. Sometimes a VWrap can be completed in just a couple of days.
Car Wraps can be removed easily, without damaging the paint beneath it. Compare against the time and cost of removing a custom paint job. Lastly, VWraps protect the paint from fading. This may result in an increase value for your vehicle when you are ready to sell your car or truck.
Q: Can parts of a van wrap be changed to reflect a new phone number or a new address? A: Yes. If you happen to move and need to change your phone number, website address, or any other information on the wrap, a portion of the VWrap can be reprinted with the new information and applied to your vehicle.
Q: How do I get started? A: A typical vehicle wrapping job involves the following steps
Fill in the vehicle request form: We need information about your vehicle and a rough idea of the design you are looking for. To get an estimate please fill the price quote form by clicking here. We try our best to give you a brisk reply. Design Creation and Approval: Once you accept the quote and a down payment has been received, we create a design for your wrap. If you already have a vehicle wrap design then this step is eliminated. After the design is created a proof is submitted and upon approval the design is sent for digital printing and laminating.
Installation Scheduling: While the wrap is in production, an installation is scheduled for your vehicle.
Installation: Finally, on the day of installation, the VWrap is installed on your vehicle and you are ready to drive your mobile advertisement everywhere you go.*
- Please note that it is important to do a good car wash your vehicle before the installation day so that it is clean from road grime and dirt. Moreover, your vehicle must not be waxed. Wax creates adhesion problem and therefore vehicle wraps peel off when applied to waxed vehicles. Wax must be completely removed from a vehicle before installation.
Will you design my graphics or do I have to provide my own design?

Should I prep my vehicle prior to the wrap installation?
At the very least, the exterior of your vehicle should be clean of any dirt or debris that may prevent the adhesive of a vehicle graphic from adhering to the vehicle itself. This is the best way you can prepare your vehicle. Other than that, our in-house installation team works in a climate controlled indoor facility to ensure nothing goes wrong with the application of a vehicle graphic. Temperature control within the facility ensures each and every adhesive we install connects with the material of the vehicle without peeling, cracking, or other fading away too soon after installation. Our installation experts know exactly what they are doing with your vehicle to ensure its safety and the graphic’s continuity.
If you have a need for other graphics being installed in the future, we offer long-term inventory management within our climate controlled warehouse for future installation jobs on your vehicles. Simply let us know what you need and we’ll work with you.
