Vehicle Wraps: A Quick How To

Applying a vehicle wrap can be a very challenging task that takes many years and practice to get just right. You may have some troubles or have to reapply at times but don’t worry, it will get easier as you go. Here are some tips and tools you will need to get yourself and your car ready for applying a vehicle wrap.

Here are all the tools you will need to get started.

  1. Wrapping vinyl
  2. Felt Wrapped Squeegee
  3. Isopropyl Alcohol
  4. Lint free cloth
  5. Heat Gun
  6. Masking Tape
  7. Razor Blade
  8. Pin or bubble popper

Now that you have all your tools we can get started.

  1. Start with a clean car. If there is grease or dirt anywhere on the car it needs to be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and wiped clean and dry with a cloth.
  2. Make sure your work space is between 60 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit, this will allow your vinyl adhere to the car but not adhere too quickly.
  3. Cut vinyl into the different sections of the car.
  4. Tape vinyl to the appropriate section with your masking tape, adjust vinyl if needed.
  5. Start removing the backing from the vinyl and slide squeegee across vinyl to stick it to the car.
  6. Go back over the vinyl and squeegee out or pop any bubble that may have formed. Make sure you do this for each section of your car so it adheres properly.

Repeat steps 4 thru 6 until car wrap is finished.
