Vinyl Wrap vs. Paint: What Should You Choose for Your Car?

Do you want to change your car’s appearance? Do you want to market your business in Brisbane and make an ever-lasting impression on your customers?

If so, you might be confused between vinyl wraps or car paint!

Though car paint is a traditional art done using colours, wraps (on the other hand) are large graphics placed directly over the original paint. Wraps can upgrade the graphic displays can be upgraded with gradient colour, chrome metallic colour, or a subtle matte colour in addition to the basic glossy appearance.

But the question is still intact- What to choose: Vinyl wrap or car wraps?

Well, let’s discuss the differences between these two on multiple parameters. 

  1. Quality 

While the quality of both paint and wraps varies depending on the type, vehicle wraps are generally of greater quality than paints. A poor-quality paint job may appear attractive at first, but it will fade, crack, and peel.

Vehicle wraps made by an experienced wrap supplier are made of long-lasting, robust fabrics that maintain the beauty of your vehicle. Vehicle wraps provide better aesthetics and protection than many paints because they don’t fade as quickly and don’t chip.

  1. Time Consumed

Painting a car takes a long time; however, wrapping a car takes only a few minutes. A paint job can take up to two weeks, whereas a car wrap would take only a few days.

Painting jobs necessitate extra preparation time and multiple coats of paint (plus a clear coat). Technicians take their time to avoid cosmetic or structural problems.

Wrapping takes less time than painting because there is just one coat to apply, and the procedure is simpler.

  1. Durability

While high-end paint jobs can last for years, a low-cost paint job could only last a few years. In just two years, a cheap paint job will start peeling, wearing, and fading, requiring you to pay for a new coat of paint.

On the other hand, these car wraps are made of long-lasting vinyl that can last up to ten years and protect against scratches from rocks and other environmental hazards. You can even choose vinyl wraps with a UV-resistant coating to keep the colours of your cover as vibrant as the day you initially placed it.

  1. Maintainance

If you want your paint to look its best for a long time, you’ll need to do a lot more maintenance than you would with vinyl. Car owners should generally wax their vehicles to protect the paint and wash them regularly to avoid pollutants ruining the paint.

Vehicle wraps are a good alternative to paint because they don’t require much maintenance. Because vinyl does not have pores like paint, contaminants cannot attach themselves to the wrap; you will not need to wash your vehicle as frequently.

Conclusion

With all of the benefits of wrapping automobiles rather than painting them, you may want to consider doing it for your vehicle.

Installing a car wrap on your vehicle or fleet will give it a consistent, aesthetically pleasing appearance.
