Different finishes on a hatchback wrap
There are so many different finishes to choose from when designing a vinyl wrap for your car. Be aware that it’s not just the color or design of a vehicle wrap that will differentiate your car, it’s also the finish of the vinyl used:
Should I partially or fully wrap my hatchback?
Vinyl wraps that cover all of the external bodywork of a car, and sometimes even the bumpers, are called full wraps. Partial wraps just cover the most prominent, flat surfaces of a vehicle, such as the hood, doors, trunk, and back windscreen.
A full hatchback wrap is significantly more expensive than a partial hatchback wrap because it requires more vinyl material. If you are on a tight budget and are looking for the biggest bang for your buck, then a partial wrap is a great option. A well-designed partial wrap can still make a huge impact.
