Partial versus a full-color wrap
If you are looking to transform the overall appearance of your car, then you should probably choose the full wrap. We will cover every part of the vehicle’s bodywork, including the side mirrors, bumpers, and fenders, with a vinyl film of fresh color.
But if you just want to create some nice color accents, go for a partial wrap. Select a preferable color or finish (for example, carbon fiber) to make certain parts of the car stand out. There’s no reason you can’t use different colors and finishes on different parts of your car for a fun, vibrant look!
Cost of color wrapping your car
To fully wrap an average-sized sedan car, you should budget from $3,200, for an SUV — $3,800. Remember, this is an upfront cost that lasts for at least 5 years with no maintenance required. The exact cost of a car wrap is dependent on the following:
- Brand of vinyl
- The area of the car covered
- Skill of installer
- Intricacy of wrap
What color wrap should I choose?
It depends on the look you want to achieve. For a high-end, luxurious touch, choose gold, silver, black, or a carbon fiber finish. For a stylish, restrained look, choose shades of blue or white. If your priority is making a bold statement, consider yellow, red, or orange car wrap colors. And remember that we’re always here to help you with your choice, just dial 773-455-0467, 312-212-0493, or 773-714-8100 and speak to our 24/7 customer support.
How long does it take to change the color of my car?
When installed by professionals, the process doesn’t take long — the job can be done within a day or two. But speak to us to know the exact timings for color wrapping your car. The following factors determine the exact timeframe of an installation:
- Size of car
- Model of a car (it takes longer to wrap some rare or vintage models)
- Area wrapped (full or partial)
- Size and shape of graphics/decals
Should I install a vinyl film myself?
The short answer is “No”. Professional installers receive hours of training before they’re able to achieve a wrap with a flawless appearance. Vinyl film is an expensive material, particularly for high-end finishes, such as carbon fiber. Correctly installed vinyl film lasts for between 5 and 7 years, so why not have the peace of mind that your film has been installed in a well-lit, dust-free workshop by professionals who know exactly what they’re doing.

You can expect high-quality vinyl wraps to last up to 7 years without fading before it needs to be replaced.
Vinyl wraps are removed with heat, usually from a heat gun. Warming up the wrap softens the adhesive and helps you peel off the vinyl in one piece. If any residue is left behind, it can be removed using an alcohol spray and a soft cloth.
