Our Vehicle Wrap Process

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 requirements, we can go straight to the next step. If not, we have an in-house team of skilled graphic designers who can take your idea to the next level and turn it into a reality. Above all, we specialize in clean and effective designs that portray your message and business branding.

2. Proofing

Once your graphic design is set up, you will receive a digital proof via email. Once you are 100% satisfied and happy with the layout we do a full-color printout on the material that is going on the vehicle. In other words, you will see exactly how the colors and design will look. Moreover, we have you come into the shop for final approval. And once you have approved the design, it is sent to print and production!

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 can 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 of the only 3M certified installers in Southeast Virginia. We strictly follow the stringent guidelines set by 3M, which is the leading manufacturer of 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.

A vehicle wrap is a special vinyl that is applied to your vehicle. It can be accent pieces like stripes or it can cover the entire vehicle and make it look completely different.

Prices vary on wraps, depending on the size of the vehicle and the amount of coverage you are looking for. We work with budgets, so if you have a budget you are needing to stick to let your sales rep know and we will get as much coverage on the vehicle as we can within that budget.

No, a wrap can actually help protect your paint from everyday wear and tear in some cases. However; a wrap is only as good as the surface it’s applied to. So if you have peeling or lifting paint, chalking or rust…the wrap will not adhere to that and it can cause the surface to become worse if removed. Proper installation and removal of your wrap is crucial to keeping your paint safe. 3M has trained our installers on how to properly prep a vehicle and install vinyl so that it can be removed without damaging your vehicle. There are circumstances that we will recommend you not get a wrap due to the surface of your vehicle. We do this with honesty to protect you, because the wrap wouldn’t last if applied and we don’t want to see your investment go out the window.

Like most things, it will last as long as it’s taken care of. We provide you with care tips to keep your wrap looking great for longer. A typical wrap can last up to 5 years. We have several customers that have outlived that and their wrap still looks awesome. The parts of your vehicle that get harshest affects from the elements are the roof, hood and truck lid. These areas of the vehicle are usually the first to show aging.

Don’t worry! If you have had to get repairs done on the vehicle we are able to wrap the new pieces. Bring the vehicle to us so we can check out what needs to be rewrapped. We can print just the sections that are needing to be repaired and install just that. No one will know but you!

Yes, we recommend starting with a clean, smooth vehicle. So we will not install vinyl over vinyl. We will remove existing vinyl for you, we charge by the hour for it. DeSigns Inc., cannot be held responsible to damage on your vehicle caused by the vinyl and removal if we did not install it originally.

We are able to wrap any smooth primed and painted surface. There are certain areas that the vinyl will be applied in pieces, like a door handle. Anything that is a textured plastic or faux chrome we do not wrap.

Our sales reps will work with you to make sure that your message is portrayed clearly and effectively. We specialize in effective wraps! We spend time with you and learn about what you want your wrap to achieve for your business. We’ll make suggestions of things to add or take away so that it will be more effective. We will measure and take pictures of your vehicle as well as check the surfaces to make sure it’s able to get wrapped. Our 2 in house designers will work to come up with a concept based on all the information you provide. We will show you the concept on a template of the vehicle. We want to make sure you’re completely happy with the layout so you’re able to make revisions, once approved we do a test print on the actual material that will be applied to the vehicle. This allows you to see a live sample of colors, ensuring that you’re satisfied. Let our experienced staff take your business to the next level!

As the age old saying goes, you get what you pay for. Our prices reflect the quality of work that goes into each installation, and our installs are incredibly thorough & time consuming. If you are finding prices that are really cheap, the quality is probably cheap too. A vehicle wrap is an investment and it is the face of your business. You want it to stand the test of time. Most shops do not offer a warranty on your wrap. We have a 3 year warranty and 3M backs us for a year of that warranty. DeSigns Inc. uses only the best MCS Certified Inks, vinyl and laminate. Installation is also taken very seriously. Not only do we make sure that your vehicle’s exterior is spotlessly clean to ensure proper adhesion and no film failure, but we also go the distance in disassembling your vehicle prior to wrapping. That means no unnecessary seams, no bad cuts, or messy edges. If the film we supplied fails, bring it in and we’ll make it right until you’re satisfied with the results.

Installation depends on the amount of vinyl being applied and the type of vehicle. Stripes, accent pieces, lettering or graphics can take 1-2 days. Full vehicle wraps will take longer. If you are working against a deadline, please let your sales rep know when you are placing the order and we will try to accommodate you.

For the most part yes. Certain custom vinyl is still a “grey area”, like a chrome wrap for example. If your company vehicle is getting wrapped and it’s also your personal vehicle we recommend checking with your homeowner’s association (if you have one) to make sure vehicles with advertising are permitted in your neighborhood.

We take your windows into consideration when designing your wrap. If you want to maintain visibility in your rear windows we offer a perforated vinyl. This lets the wrap design to continue and cover your windows but allows the driver to see. The driver and passenger windows will not be covered by any type of vinyl.
