What are the advantages of wrapping my business vehicle?
Commercial/Business Wraps advertising local businesses are becoming more and more common these days. Do they make sense for your company?

What is a vehicle wrap and how can it help your small business?
Vehicle wraps are vinyl digitally printed traveling billboards that are professionally installed on your vehicle. Whether the entire vehicle is wrapped (covered) or just a portion of it called a partial wrap, including the windows. They can be printed in full color, black and white, sepia toned (completely customizable) with custom business logos and graphics to promote company branding.
They are made Wraps are not just for large companies that have vehicle fleets.
“Vehicle wraps can work for any size business. Many small-business owners who use vehicle wraps agree that it gives their company credibility by displaying their brand and logo where potential customers can see them. Smaller businesses using vehicle wraps say it puts them the same leagues as the larger franchises and companies that have a fleet of vehicles.”
“Mobile advertising reaches more consumers at a lower cost per thousand impressions – around 4 cents per thousand – than any other form of advertising. That compares to about $3.56 per thousand impressions for outdoor signs. And newspaper ads run around $19.70 for the same number of impressions. The number of impressions per day will vary with the amount of miles driven and where the vehicle is used, of course. But the numbers can run anywhere between 30,000 and 80,000 impressions per day. And that can bring the cost below $44 per million impressions. Wow!

How does a wrap compare to paint?
Wrap film is not permanent nor is it a replacement for paint. Wrap film makes it fast and easy to change your mind or your color. In many cases, wrapping your project can be a much less expensive option then painting it!
Can wraps be installed over paint scratches, dents, or rust?
Wrap film is very thin and flexible to allow it to conform to the contours of your vehicle, but that means it also conforms to any imperfection such as a scratches or dents, and that will show through. With that being said we suggest that all damaged surfaces get treated as if the vehicle was going to be painted. Sanded and primed.
Rust is another matter. Wrap film will stick to the solid surface and finish of an undamaged vehicle, if there is rust present, the film will stick to the rust instead. This will cause the film to fall off when and where the rust does. Arizona Color Wrap Pros. suggests that before spending the time and money to wrap a damaged or rusted vehicle, we recommend repairing it.
Whether it’s a DIY or a professional body shop. We cannot and will not install over damaged areas. Oh and the finish on the repairs must be allowed to cure for the period of time specified by the manufacturer before applying any films. We cannot apply graphics to fresh paint it must have a 2 week cure time prior!
