FAQS

What is a vehicle wrap?

A wrap is a digitally-printed graphic that fully or partially covers a vehicle. The large graphic print is literally shrink-wrapped to the vehicle. Wraps are sometimes confused with loose decals on a painted surface.

Why choose a wrap or decals over paint?

Vinyl graphics are a great non-permanent way to advertise your business. According to the Outdoor Advertising Association of America, mobile advertising reaches more consumers at a lower cost per thousand (CPM) impressions than any form of traditional advertising. On average, a vehicle wrap costs approximately $.77 per CPM, while a 60-second radio spot can cost up to $8.61 CPM. The average billboard can cost up to $2.18 per CPM.

Will a wrap or decal damage my vehicle's paint upon removal?

Wraps and decals will generally cause no damage to factory paint, given there is no rust or chips. In fact, vinyl wraps usually protect a vehicle's paint from fading, peeling or chipping!

What kind of material do you use?

Pro Cal uses only the highest-quality vinyl and is certified across many manufacturers. But if you have a specific material you'd like to use, let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate!

How long will a vinyl wrap or decal last on my vehicle?

The average wrap or decal lasts three to five years, depending on the type of graphics and vinyl applied. With proper care, you can extend the life of your graphics. Find out how in "Tips for Long-lasting Vehicle Wrap" on our blog.

Do you offer a warranty?

Warranties differ with varieties of materials and applications; however, Pro Cal generally offers up to four years for our printed vinyl.

How should I care for my vehicle graphics?

We highly recommend hand-washing your vehicle to increase the life expectancy of your vinyl graphic. Avoid high pressure washes and ice scrapers. Please see "Tips for a Long-lasting Vehicle Wrap" on our blog for more information.

How long will installation take?

A typical turnaround is three to four days after artwork approval.

Can you install or remove graphics at my place of business?

Yes. Our qualified team of installers will come to you to install or remove your graphics. If you are located outside the Carolinas, we will arrange install for you.

Can I install my own wrap or decal?

Yes, but we highly recommend our own experienced staff of vinyl applicators. Installation by a trained professional also decreases the likelihood of future material failure.

I am in the motorsports industry. Can I embed my sponsors' logos in a wrap?

Yes. Our wrap templates are accurate for current Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series. Pro Cal's Slick Wrap allows logos to be embedded within the wrap for a smooth finish.

Does my vehicle have to be a certain color or stripped of other graphics before it can be wrapped?

Paint color will not affect our graphics. Additional charges apply to stripping pre-existing graphics. Our team can advise you.

Do I have to provide my own digital art files?

Although you are welcome to provide your own files, we have many talented designers on staff to make your vision a reality.

How easily can you replace my wrap or decals if my business information changes or if my vehicle is damaged in an accident?

Graphics can easily be changed with an overlay, or we can remove and re-wrap your vehicle. In the case of an accident, we usually replace only the damaged sections of the wrap. And insurance often covers the cost of the replacement!

How do you cover windows and still alow for visibility?

Perforated window film lets vehicle occupants see out, while onlookers see the larger printed graphic on the film.

Do you wrap or decal more than just cars, buses, RV's and trailers?

Yes. Throughout the years, we've applied vinyl decals and wraps to boats, walls, guitars, golf carts, helmets, motorcycles, etc. - even filing cabinets!
