your vehicle or boat. This process incorporates
special software, quality printing inks, superior
vinyl materials and laminates that meet and often
exceed the standard in this industry. Below is a
quick step-by-step list of the process involved:

perforated window film, or reflective film and covered
with laminate to protect your custom art for many
years to come.
characteristics of the film and the contours of
the vehicle will determine how well the custom graphic
application will perform and will determine the
thickness of vinyls used. Various forms of dirt
and grease are found on vehicles; therefore, industry
standard cleaners are used to remove these contaminants
prior to graphic application. Primers are added
where needed to aide in vinyl adhesion.
the vehicle is properly prepared, the vinyl film
is applied to the vehicle. Stretching and the use
of an industry standard squeegee to smooth over
the contours in the vehicle are required to adhere
the vinyl to the vehicle's surface. In areas with
tight contours, a heatgun in combination with a
squeegee is often required to properly adhere the
vinyl to the vehicle.
after the graphics have been applied and the vinyl
smoothed out over the vehicles flat, contour and
concave surfaces, a heat gun is used at approximately
200° F to aide in the bonding of the vinyl in
complex areas. This insures a proper bond and long
life for your new custom vehicle ad wrap.
