Looking after your vehicle wrap


A vehicle wrap is an investment that can last for years with the right care.

You can care for your vehicle wrap by treating it like a custom paint finish to avoid scratches and peeling. We recommend hand washing your wrap on a regular basis to remove bugs, dirt, and tar. A touch-free car wash is the next best option if excessive pressure and heated drying can be avoided.

We do not recommend automatic car washes if your wrap includes perforated vinyl on the windows. Keeping your vehicle out of the sun when possible will also increase the life of your vehicle wrap.
