General Question

In short, a vehicle wrap is essentially a durable high-quality sticker that we print and shrink-wrap to fit the design of your vehicle. The wrap is applied over the original paint of the vehicle. The placement of the wrap can allow you to change the appearance of your vehicle quickly and cost effectively. The wrap is easily removed and doesn’t damage the exterior of the paint. A vehicle wrap is a very cost effective way to use your vehicle as a mobile billboard to promote your company.
No, a wrap is a digitally printed graphic on top of adhesive vinyl. Think of it as a large very durable sticker. It’s more like a big, high-tech sticker. In fact it will protect the original paint on your car!
If it rolls, we can wrap it. We can even wrap it if it floats (we’ve wrapped a few boats in our day.)
It’s very simple; we are experts in design, print and installation. We have certified installers with 3M and the United Applications Standards Group. Our team of professional artists and installers are patient and courteous. We try our best to go out of the way to make your product, and service experience as enjoyable as easy and possible.
A typical wrap will take 1-2 days depending on the size of the vehicle. We pride ourselves in a quick turnaround time without the sacrifice of quality.
Not in comparison to the amount and quality of marketing you get for it. With normal media you pay for a one time print add, or a commercial and reach a very limited audience. With vehicle wraps your message is with you wherever you go and being marketed 100% of the time to everyone who can see it.
There are many factors taken into account when pricing a vehicle wrap. Design time, materials (including vinyl and lamination), printing costs, and installation. The size of the vehicle, size of the wrap applied to the vehicle, and type of vehicle also play a role in the pricing of a vehicle wrap. A more rounded vehicle like a VW Bug is harder to wrap then a box truck due to the rounded angles. Partial wraps are a great way to have a vehicle wrap advertising but still minimize the costs to your budget. We recommend talking to one of our trained professionals to discuss your options and budget. We can work with you to get the best solution for your needs.
No, there are a couple of different options you have when wrapping your vehicle. A partial wrap is a wise option, also traditional vinyl lettering is another option. Although we recommend our vehicle wraps over vinyl lettering, it really is what you need and your budget allows. We understand that fact, and are here to work with your constraints to get the best advertising suited for you and your situation.
Yes. We use perforated window film. You will be able to see through the film although it will not be as clear as glass.
We are confident that you will love your new vehicle wrap. We take pride in delivering you a quality product that you will be proud to show off to your target audience. Please feel free to check out our Testimonials section for clients feedback, or contact one of our representatives.

Technical Question

Simply call 1st Impressions Customer Care and schedule the repair. We can easily reproduce graphics and repair the affected area.
With lesser brands a vehicle wrap can have a very limited life span, but we only use premium wrap material, so under normal circumstances, the wrap will last 3-5 years. Combined with our professional installation from trained and certified installers your wrap will be properly installed which will also increase the lifespan.
No. Quite the opposite a vehicle wrap will actually help protect your vehicles exterior much in the same way a screen protector shields from scratches.
Yes, we can repair your vehicle wrap. If a section of your wrap is damaged rest assured we can print out another section and replace the damaged area. You won’t even notice where we fixed it!
Hand washing is best! We recommend avoiding high pressure washes and make sure to never use a ice-scraper on applied window graphics. There are also special cleaners designed for cleaning vehicle graphics, contact us and ask your representative for more information we will be glad to help.
