What is a vehicle wrap?

A vehicle wrap consists of a design which is developed by our staff of designers, then printed on special vinyl wrap and laminated, and finally installed or “wrapped” on a vehicle. The wrap is applied directly to the vehicle. The application is so precise it is often mistaken for a custom paint job.

How is a vehicle wrap designed?

Our in-house staff of designers specialize in vehicle wrap design. They work with the client throughout the process to ensure that the message conveyed in the design accurately and appropriately reflects that of the company, product or person. Final proofs, mockups and explanations of the car wrap design are always reviewed prior to sending the job to print.

How are car wraps printed?

Our onsite printing department and staff ensures the accurate transfer of the images through its advanced art print server. The large format printer is fitted with state of the art ink systems insuring the best color schemes and resolution available in the car wrap industry. We have carefully chosen the media we print on, which has been time tested for use in vehicle wraps.

Where is the car wrap installation performed?

Advantage Graphics works with Advantage RV's who operates out of a four stall work shop with two 14 foot bays and two 12 foot bays. The additional work spaces allow vehicles, trailers, semis, and large trucks to be indoors during graphics installations - all 12 months of the year!

Are car wraps applied to windows?

Yes, but only rear side and rear windows. Window wraps are printed on a special perforated vinyl that allows the driver to see through the rear and side rear windows.

If the company information on my vehicle wrap changes, can it be replaced?

Yes. Graphics, logos, and phone numbers (or any part of the design) can be changed, reprinted and re-installed as overlays on the car wrap.

Can a car wrap be removed?

Yes. The wrap can be removed. However, attempting to remove it yourself may cause damage to your paint. We suggest having Advantage Graphics de-install your vehicle wrap as our installation experts are best equipped with this task.

Will the car wrap damage my paint?

No. A car wrap, when applied and removed correctly, does not damage your car’s OEM paint. In fact, it protects it.

Will you pay me to drive my car with someone else’s advertising?

No. Our company designs, prints and wraps vehicles for businesses looking to advertise on their vehicles. We are not a driver – advertiser broker.

Will you wrap a leased vehicle?

Yes. Since a wrap can be removed without damaging a vehicle, there are no restrictions against wrapping a leased vehicle.

How long will a vinyl wrap last on my vehicle?

Our vinyl car wraps will normally outlast the vehicle. You can expect your wrap to last 5 years or longer, as long as you’re careful about high pressure washing.

How do I care for my car wrap?

It is best to hand wash your wrapped vehicle. In general, avoid power washing and do not use an ice-scraper. Brushing windows and the use of a rear defroster will cause no damage to your window wrap.

What’s the difference between a ½, ¾, and full wrap?

A size of the wrap (Full, ½ or ¼) simply refers to the percentage of the car that is covered by the wrap. This is also referred to as a partial vehicle wrap and a full vehicle wrap.

How long does it take to wrap a car?

Our vinyl car wraps are typically completed in 1-2 days, depending on the size of the vehicle and intricacy of the wrap. Time estimates are given to our customers prior to beginning the installation process.

Do you wrap anything other than vehicles?

Yes. We have wrapped boats, jet skis, motorcycles, snow mobiles, buildings, storefronts, tradeshow walls, appliances – we've pretty much wrapped everything.

Where is your car wrap install location?

Advantage Graphicsis headquartered in Watertown, South Dakota on East Highway 212 attached to Advantage RV's.
