You can count the reasons you might want to have a vinyl wrap installed on your car, truck, or boat:

  • to brand it for your business
  • to cover an ugly paint job
  • to protect your showroom finish
  • to customize your vehicle

What you can’t count, are your vehicle wrap options—they’re practically endless! A few of the more popular options would include:

Printed wrap (advertising)

Digitally printed vinyl vehicle wraps are one of the most effective ways to advertise your business. One wrapped vehicle makes between 30,000–80,000 impressions per day, and 95 percent of people who see a vehicle wrap remember what they saw.

Because they’re designed on a computer, these wraps can feature almost any graphics you choose. (Go for clean, colorful images of 300 DPI or higher and large, easy-to-read fonts.) Printed wraps are available in both glossy and matte finishes.

Color change wraps

This wrap does exactly what its name implies—allows you to change the color of your vehicle without the expense of a paint job. You’ll have hundreds of colors and a wide range of finishes to choose from. Vinyl color change wraps will give your old vehicle a brand-new look that will last for years.

Matte wraps

Not into gloss and shine? Get an understated low profile with a matte vinyl wrap that will cut down on reflections and highlight the lines of your vehicle instead. Black and silver have traditionally been the most popular colors for these wraps, but they come in everything from white to green to purple.

Carbon fiber

With their classy 3-D texture, carbon fiber vinyl wraps will step your vehicle up a notch. Your color choices are almost endless, ranging from transparent (to texture your car’s original color) to white, silver, blue, red, and pink! Carbon fiber wraps can be applied over the entire vehicle or on selected areas to add a unique touch of style.

Brushed metal wraps

These wraps are eye-catching and durable, providing a satin finish that maintains some, but not all, of your vehicle’s luster. The result is a unique, lightly frosted look. Like most vinyl wraps, brushed metal wraps are available in plenty of colors besides black: aluminum, gold, steel blue, steel, and titanium, to name just a few.


If you want to go for the glam, go for a luxurious chrome wrap. You can get a mirror finish in any color, and most chrome wraps come with a scratch-resistant top coat designed to make your wrap last at least as long as a professional paint job, if not longer. In addition to being in the height of style, chrome wraps reflect a lot of sun, which will keep your vehicles interior temperature lower.


With a pearl wrap, your vehicle’s color will change subtly, depending on the viewing angle. These wraps give any vehicle an opulent, iridescent, multidimensional look.

Glow in the dark

Printed glow-in-the-dark wraps are great for advertising businesses after dark. Glow in the dark wraps are popular with non-business users as well, who often apply them to hoods, trunks, mirrors, and spoilers. The wraps also appeal to safety-minded boat owners who cruise the waters under the stars.


Camouflage wraps come in a surprising variety of styles and colors, ranging from the familiar forest-green-and-brown base to designs featuring orange and red, pink, and even purple! Once again, you can choose to wrap your entire vehicle, or partial wrap on the rocker panels and fender flares.
