1.   Can Vinyl graphics and printed graphics be removed from my vehicle without damaging my paint work?
 

As long as you have original factory paint work vinyl or printed graphics can always be removed along with the residue without damaging your paintwork. There are different types of adhesives used and some are designed to be easily removed at any time up to five years without leaving hard to clean residue. Others are permanent and used in certain specific circumstances.

  
2.   I am looking to get signage or graphics installed on my car, what do I need to get started?
 

Generally if you are looking at getting signage for you company vehicle we would need a high quality file of your logo (Ideally AI or EPS) and a rough concept and idea of what you are after. From here we will get some pictures of your vehicle and come up with a concept for tweaking and hopefully final approval. If you are after graphics for your street car or race car to give your that different look to set you apart then if you have a basic idea and concept and ideally with a picture to support the idea we can go to town. We also have a huge range of graphics and background textures on file to help you along the way.

  
3.   Can I take vehicle graphics, car magnets, car wraps,vinyl cut lettering on vehicles through the carwash?
 

We suggest hand washing your vehicle as many car washes can be quite rough. Just some warm soapy water with a soft sponge is the preferred method.
The car graphic, car magnets, vinyl cut lettering for your car has been laminated so it is quite robust, so you don’t need to be overly cautious, just aware.

  
4.   Can you vehicle wrap the roof of a car,bus or truck with signage?
 

You can vehicle wrap the car roof, however, this area & the bonnet are the most affected by the Ultra Violet Rays of the sun. That means those horizontal surfaces will be the first to fade and fail. As the roof is usually not seen we generally recommend against vehicle  wrapping it.

  
5.   Can you wrap signage on car windows or a glass windshield?
 

In Australia, the laws vary from state to state, but we would suggest that you don't put anything on your front windscreen or windows of your vehicle. You can, however, use special 1 Way films on the rear & side windows.  The 1 Way Films are almost undetectable from the inside looking out of the vehicle & it offers the added benefit of cutting down on glare. From the outside a 1 Way Film holds a vibrant print design, adding to the impact of the vehicle signage. Wrapping your vehicle with the addition on one film has a huge impact. It is a great way to advertise your business and website. Now every traffic jam you are stuck in is a fantastic marketing opportunity!.

  
6.   Can you wrap my car, van, or boat with signage? What about bikes, jet ski signage?
 

We can provide signage with a solution for your car, boat, truck or wrap just about anything. We have even done motor bikes, fridges, bath tubs, jet skis, vans, trucks, shipping containers and much more with signage.

9.   Why should I do a vehicle wrap as opposed to paint or vinyl lettering?
 

Wrapping a vehicle gives you more options with your vehicle signage. We can produce complex and intricate designs now that were unheard of a decade ago. When you are ready to upgrade your vehicle you can strip the vinyl and be left with the original paintwork. This is not always easily possible with vehicle vinyl lettering or painted vehicle signage.
