If you’ve ever thought about painting your car but hesitated due to the commitment or price tag, you may be surprised to learn that there’s another, less permanent option. Car wraps are an affordable way to upgrade the look of your ride without the hassle of a completely new automotive paint job. Sometimes referred to as color-change wraps, vehicle wraps and graphics give your ride the same professional look of a custom paint job in any style or graphic design.


In this post from Sun Control of Minnesota, we’ll compare and contrast custom auto paint with car wrapping so you can make an educated decision. Give us a call to discuss custom car wrap designs for your Twin Cities ride!

How Car Wraps Work

You’ve seen car wraps in action anytime you’ve seen a commercial vehicle wrapped in custom graphics. Commercial vehicle wraps give business owners an affordable way to change out the graphics on their fleet every time they have a new promotion.


The beauty of car wraps for both business and personal use is that they are available in practically limitless options with more designs and styles than many custom body paint shops offer. Because they’re more affordable than paint and easy to change, they’re quickly becoming the preferred option for personal use as well as business.


Here are just a few of the options that are available:


●        Carbon fiber

●        Matte

●        Neon

●        Textured

●        Satin

●        Gloss

●        Brushed

●        Color flip

Benefits of Car Wrap Over Paint

One of the biggest hassles with getting a custom paint job is how long you have to spend without your vehicle. If you use your vehicle daily, this means having to rent a car for an extended amount of time. When you have your car custom painted, the old paint needs to be removed and each of its new multiple coats will require up to a full day to dry.


If you’re lucky and the paint job is simple, you may have your ride back in as little as a week. But some paint jobs can take up to several weeks to complete. Car wraps, on the other hand, only require time to wash and dry the vehicle and apply your vinyl, which means you’ll have your ride back much sooner. Car wraps are also significantly less costly than paint, making them an easy choice.
