How long do vehicle wraps last?

Vehicle wraps are a great advertising tool but How long do vehicle wraps last?

It’s similar to considering how long a piece of furniture will last.

The answer depends on the quality of the materials and the workmanship used. It also depends on how well this furniture is cared for and maintained.

With the right material, expert production, and a certified 3M installer (of which we’re proud to be a Platinum provider), you’ll get the maximum lifespan out of your fleet graphics.

So, how many years will fleet graphics last?

When done right, fleet graphics can last 3-5+ years and still look incredible. (Many clients insist their vehicles look great for years beyond that!) In many cases — like the 492 wraps we recently did for Coca-Cola — vehicle graphics can last for the remaining lifetime of your trailers

7 tips for maximizing the lifespan of your vehicle wraps:

1. Parking in the shade can increase the lifespan of your vehicle wrap.

2. Washing your vehicle wrap properly will support its longevity.

3. Choosing the right material for your initiative will impact the lifespan of your graphic — and this takes expert guidance! Not all wrap materials are the same. For a long term initiative, we recommend a durable, high-quality pressure sensitive vinyl film with UV protection that will protect your graphics from fading. A sub-par material will not have this kind of longevity.

4. Using a certified 3M installer is the only way to ensure the wrap has adhered properly to your vehicle. Improper installation can result in signs of wear, peeling or getting dirty under the wrap, and a decreased lifespan.

5. If there is ever a problem with your wrap, rely on your warranty provider to fix it correctly.

6. High quality wraps last longer and result in a better return on your investment.

7. If your wrap gets damaged on the road, you’ll need a partner who makes replacements on-the-road quick and easy. At Turbo Images, we offer nationwide installation and an online ordering system, to keep your graphics looking stellar for their entire lifespan.
