Car wrapping has become more and more popular as the materials and installation for professional new designs become more widespread. In the past, only businesses would be willing to cough up the change to wrap a car so they could advertise their services. Now, however, even regular car enthusiasts are looking to vinyl wraps as a fun and cool way to change up the look without any commitment. Instead of a pricey paint job that could go wrong or may diminish resale value, you can now just throw on a vinyl layer until you get tired of it.
To be fair, car wrapping is not cheap by any means. It is, however, typically cheaper than similar quality paint jobs.

What is a Vinyl Vehicle Wrap?
Wraps are a pretty straightforward concept that involves a special technique of applying a thin film or sheet of vinyl on top of your vehicle. Often, the vinyl is printed with a logo or brand that allows the car to act as a moving advertisement for a company. However, lowered pricing and simpler techniques have brought this approach into the consumer market and it is now used very frequently for purely aesthetic reasons. Painting a car can be a huge pain and very expensive, so sometimes just wrapping it is the better option. There are more than a few reasons why opting to wrap your car instead of repainting it could be the smart decision.
