FAQs

What is a ‘Vehicle Wrap’?

A vehicle wrap could be described as a big vinyl decal being wrapped around the
entire surface of any van, car, boat, truck or bus. ‘Wraps’ are also done to
motorcycles, windows, floors, and even onto cell phones. A partial wrap implies
only a portion of a vehicle surface being covered.

How much does a ‘Wrap’ cost?

Most frequently the cost is determined by a charge by the square foot of the
vehicle. There may be surcharged for additional curvature on some vehicles
because these intricate wraps take longer to complete.

Who is a Signsational ‘Wrapper’?

Our installers have attended formal training and have multiple vehicles wraps
under their belts. The material is a specific layered vinyl with a stretching
ability when heated. The vinyl has an adhesive back which will not damage your
new car paint! Because of the nature of the vinyl materials used and the details
of door handles, bumpers and general curves, the application becomes an art.

Will my ‘Wrap’ be removable?

Definitely. A professional will remove the wrap material which is backed with an
adhesive that requires products to remove it. If you know it will be temporary,
ask ahead of time. Special process can be used to make the wrap easier to
remove.

What benefits can I expect from a wrap?

We can’t measure a dollar amount you’ll earn from a wrap, but you can expect to
generate at least 10-30 thousand impressions daily. Your name recognition is
expected to be more than 15x greater. To get the same advertising effects as a
$3,000 wrap, you would need to spend ten times that! Since 90% of people
surveyed notice vehicle graphics, it’d be hard to predict the exact lead
generation you can expect your wrap to produce for you.

How does Signsational Graphics ‘Wrap’ my vehicle?

Signsational Graphics consistently uses premium vinyl wrapping material. Our installers are
have been trained by the Signworld program. We guarantee the installation and
materials for two years. Vehicles are wrapped at our special temperature
controlled facility on Hwy 280. We are charge by the square foot and offered
incentives for fleets and multiple vehicle installation spanning a year.

How fast is your average job being completed?

The turnaround time for your average sign varies based on your specific needs. We keep all the major materials in stock because we understand our clients needs are sometimes more urgent and we need to have everything in place and ready to go. That’s how we’re able to crank out a job with a very short notice. We also try to work with suppliers that are close and/or deliver next day, so we can get the rush jobs done if we need to.

How do I submit artwork / files?

We work with most professional design applications including Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop / Illustrator, etc. If we’re “cutting” the lettering or logo out, we will be needing a Vector File, otherwise we can digitize (or Vectorize) the artwork you provide us in a JPEG, TIFF, PSD, GIF, etc. at an additional charge. You can email us your “print ready” or “cut ready” artwork, mail us a CD-R, CD-RW, DVD or USB flash drive or upload your file to our website. Please be sure that artwork is sent “high resolution”. If you have questions concerning your artwork or need help uploading, feel free to contact us by phone or email.

What resolution is acceptable for artwork submitted?

If sending your artwork in “real size”, please send your work 150 dpi. We can also work with a one-inch-to-one-foot ratio (Example: if the art is to be 6 feet long and 4 feet tall, the submitted artwork should be 6 inches long and 4 inches tall) at 300 dpi.

What is dpi?

Dpi is the standard of measurement for the resolution of images that describes the number of dots per inch (dpi) that are used to create an image. The higher the dpi, the higher the resolution which translates to better quality of your final product.

What is the difference between vector and bitmap images and which is better?

Vector and bitmap images are the two major graphic types. Both types are made up of many individual objects, and both respond differently when enlarged and/or reduced to produce different sizes of images. We can use both types of files, however we prefer vector files and we can change sizes easily without sacrificing quality using original vector formats. Vector images can be output at the highest quality in any scale because they are made of lines and panels rather than pixels or dots. Vector images are resolution independent. Common vector formats are eps, ai and pdf. These formats are available in most graphics programs.
A bitmap image (also called a raster image) is made of pixels (sometimes referred to as dots). The number of pixels in one square inch of an image is called the dpi (dots per inch) and is known as the resolution of the image (Example: 150 dpi means that the image has 150 dots per square inch within that image). Quite simply, the larger number of dots you have in your image produces a higher quality of reproduction. Bitmap images loose quality when the are re-sized from their original size and must be created with consideration for their output use. Bitmap images should be built at 150 dpi if they are built at the actual finished size. You can build the bitmap files at a smaller proportional size than the final usage size, but you must increase the resolution accordingly. For instance, if you build your file at a ratio of 1 inch = 1 foot, you should build the file at 300 dpi. In this case, you would build a 2 inch x 2 inch file at 300 dpi to print a resulting 2 foot x 2 foot image at 150 dpi. Common bitmap-based formats are jpeg, jpg, gif, tiff, png, pict and bmp. Although vector image is the preferred format for submitting artwork, it is not as common for non- designers and bitmap images at the correct resolution can be substituted.
Larger resolution files also use more bytes of memory & sometimes require special methods to transfer the images. Many graphic files become too large for standard email servers to upload so we have provided a page within our website called UPLOAD FILES. Using this tool will enable you to send us your file without jamming your email server. This is a FREE server, however it does require you to send one file at a time. Just click on our page called UPLOAD FILES and fill in the blanks to upload your files.
