Car Wraps Richmond | Color Change Vinyl Wraps
The market for advertising wraps, also known as vehicle wraps, continues to expand as more businesses recognize the cost effective marketing value their existing fleet of vehicles can provide. We discuss a number of different ways to vehicles can be branded to generate customer interest but we haven't spent much time talking about the "other wraps".
Color change or painted vinyl wraps are something most of us will not likely do to the family mini van but for the car enthusiast, this latest announcement from 3M, the leader in vehicle wrap vinyl technology, will certainly make them smile. The following exerpt is from the trade publication Sign Builder Illustrated:
3M Commercial Graphics is expanding its line of Scotchprint brand Wrap Film Series 1080 with nineteen new high impact gloss colors and two new matte colors.
Available September 1, the additions will take the wrap film’s offerings to a total of thirty-three different films, with carbon fiber and brushed metal textures available, as well as both matte and high-gloss finishes. With the new line extension, car enthusiasts and restylers have even more options to make their creations anything but ordinary.
Since its introduction, Scotchprint brand Wrap Film Series 1080 from 3M has been used to create distinctive and exciting looks on hoods, roofs, door panels, and entire vehicles. The long-term, removable cast films are designed for vehicle detailing, decoration, and full wraps without graphic protection. This film offers the same great installation features found on Controltac brand Graphic Films with Comply Adhesive from 3M. The product’s pressure-activated adhesive allows it to slide and be repositioned until firm pressure is applied. The non-visible air release channels assure fast, easy, and virtually bubble-free installations.
The introduction of these new colors has broadly expanded the line of available finishes for the custom car client. Matte black and matte white have been the hottest trends since their introduction. You can't do a matte paint finish so these were very distinctive looks if you were in the market to personalize your ride. Carbon fiber textured wraps are also a hot look with vinyl materials costing substantially less than the metallic alternatives.
New colors will certainly spark new interest from custom car types. The advantage of using a colored wrap vinyl material over paint or printed vinyl materials is durability and longevity. Like other wrap vinyls, these colored materials remove cleanly and will not damage OEM paint finishes. So, if you want to stylize that new Ferrari with some white aluminum and bright orange this season, you can cover your baby with these new films and enjoy a signature style. When you get bored or want to trade up to another model, remove the film to reveal a factory fresh finish underneath. A great plus for a high end trade in or resale value.
