Signworks Vehicle Wrap Quality Standards

Not All Vehicle Wraps are Created Equal

When researching graphics providers for your car wrap, van wrap, or truck wrap, ask for specifications to be listed in the quote so you can make an informed comparison. Remember that even though a wrap may be less expensive initially, it is not a good investment if the wrap doesn’t last as expected and has to be replaced.

Vinyl – Calendared vs. Cast

The type of vinyl that is used is the #1 factor in the longevity of your wrap. There are two different categories of vinyl that can be used for vehicle wraps: calendared and cast. Calendared vinyl is thicker and has a more aggressive adhesive, where cast vinyl has an ultra-thin premium quality, is highly conformable, and is clean-removing. Calendared vinyl is typically 50% less expensive and may look great at first, but over several months it will start to shrink and eventually fail. Signworks uses only premium 3M™ brand cast vinyl in a 2-mil thickness for all of our vehicle wraps. This will ensure that every wrap looks great for years, and is how we can offer a 3 year warranty on our product.

Protective Laminate

A wrap is an investment, and a quality wrap should last! We use a clear UV laminate over all of our vehicle wrap graphics to protect them from scratches and fading. Signworks uses a premium 3M™ product that has high conformability and flexibility and gives UV, weathering, and abrasion protection.

Fully Cured OEM Ink

We use only high quality original equipment manufacturer ink for our Mimaki JV33 printers to achieve great durability and undeniable precision. Even though OEM ink is more expensive, we find that it translates into superior print quality. We allow the ink on the graphics to fully cure before lamination to ensure a beautiful print and proper adhesion.

3 Year Warranty

We can offer a 3 year prorated limited warranty on our graphics because we adhere to the highest quality standard in materials and production. Our customers expect quality and a high return on their investment, and Signworks is committed to delivering a superior product that you can trust.
