Types of vinyl we use for car wrapping
This wrap comes with a glossy classic finish. This is quite like the original paintwork of the vehicle and has a smooth finish and texture. Glossy wraps are widely available in a range of colour. Some come with a metallic flake making it more of a metallic finish. This style wraps make your vehicles more stylish and beautiful. We have a wide variety of different colours that can be seen in house.
As the name indicates this wrap provides a matte finish to your vehicle. This wrap is classic and can give your vehicle a luxury look. Like gloss wraps, matte wraps are also available in a wide range of colours. Matte wraps are ideally suited for modern commercial vehicles. They are highly cost effective, and they provide long lasting performance.
Satin wraps are not quite matt not quite gloss also known as semi-gloss. These wraps are preferred by modern car owners. The glossiness of this wrap is more matte and less than a glossy wrap. As a result, it reflects a small amount of sunlight. Satin vehicle wraps provide a professional look to your car. The sleek design of this wrap is unique. If you want a combination of matte and gloss a satin vehicle wrap is a perfect option to choose.

What are the pros and Cons of having your vehicle wrapped?
A question we often hear is; should you wrap your car?
Honestly, it depends on what you’re looking for and how much of a stamp you want to put on your vehicle.
Here are some of the pros and cons to consider.
- A Fresh Look for your car – colour, texture or design; you can give your car a complete revamp with the right wrapping.
- Cheaper than other customisation options – respraying a car comes at a cost, so wrapping could be a more affordable option for those looking to customise on a budget.
- Protect your paintwork – given that wrapping is treated with a UV and scratch-protective coating, the vinyl can help protect the paintwork from wear, tear and sun damage.
- Advertise – If you have a business, wrapping is a great, low-cost way to showcase your brand on the move, without an expensive respray.
- Less permanent than a respray – if you are concerned that customising your car could affect its resale value, remember that wraps can be professionally removed, so you can restore everything to its original condition.
- Difficult to apply – if you decide to apply a car wrap yourself, you need to take a patient approach and have all the right tools to hand before you start. Poorly fitted car wraps really do look terrible, and you risk wasting money if you get it wrong.
- Risk of rust – reiterating the point above – when wraps are badly fitted, there’s a risk that moisture will get under the vinyl. If this happens, rust spots are likely to appear on the paintwork, as there’s nowhere for the water to escape.
- Cheap wrapping doesn’t age well – if you go for a cheap wrapping service, don’t expect the vinyl to last very long. Either the colour will start fading or it will fray at the corners, requiring a replacement.
- Insurance issues – because car wrapping is classed as customising, you’ll need to inform your insurer if you have it fitted. Depending on the firm, this could affect the price you pay for cover.
- Resale value – if you don’t (or can’t) remove the wrap, there’s a chance your car’s resale value could take a hit. There’s a smaller market for cars wrapped in bright colours and patterns, so this might affect the price you get.
