Сhoose the Right Auto Wrapping Film Type for Your Chicago Ride!
Auto wrapping film types are the different sorts of vinyl that can be applied to the bodywork of a vehicle to promote a business, protect the paintwork, or simply transform its look. Vinyl films can be used to fully wrap entire vehicles, or partially wrap the most visible surfaces of a vehicle, such as the doors, hood, or trunk. Sounds good?

What are the different auto wrapping vinyl types?
There are two different types of auto wrapping vinyl types: calendared vinyl and cast vinyl. Calendared vinyl is cheaper and thicker than cast vinyl, but also less durable and therefore best used for short-term spot lettering or a decal solution on your vehicle. Calendared vinyl is produced with more aggressive adhesive which can be difficult to clean off when the wrap is removed.
At Tinting Chicago, we only apply quality cast films to vehicles because they are thinner, more durable, and longer-lasting. Unlike calendared films, cast films never shrink or bubble at the edges making them ideal for long-term car wrapping.
Don’t make the mistake of selecting the wrong product for the purpose. If your priority is a quality, durable vinyl wrap that is easy to remove, a cast vinyl film is the preferred option.
Where the auto wrapping films can be applied to?
When choosing a film type, you will need to consider many factors, and it’s always better to ask specialists for help. Our Tinting Chicago customer service is available 24/7: you can call us any time of the day for advice. Vinyl wraps can be installed on any type of vehicle from a van to a perfectly flat box truck. Unlike respraying, the installation process for vehicle wraps takes only a couple of hours meaning your car can be completely transformed in just one day! Our wraps can be stretched over concave and convex curves, any kind of compound curve, tight crevices, grills, and bumpers. Wraps can be partial or applied to the whole vehicle.

Eye-catching vinyl films are also used to create digitally printed wraps, with graphics that promote a logo or brand. Businesses can fully wrap or partially wrap their cars with branded graphics to gain excellent advertising exposure, at an affordable cost.
Studies have shown that vehicle wraps are the most cost-effective form of outdoor advertising available. If just one branded car can receive up to 80,000 views per day, imagine how many views a whole fleet could achieve!
