A wrap is a removable vinyl film that is applied to a van’s surface to transform its look or help promote a business. Vinyl van wraps can be installed on any type of van, no matter the age or model. Installation is quick and easy, taking no more than a couple of hours.

Vinyl wraps are installed on personal vans to change their color or to transform them into a one-of-a-kind vehicle that reflects the distinct personality of the owner. Vinyl films are installed on business vans to help promote a company and its services, as well as to give a fleet of vans a uniform look and feel.

A side benefit of wrapping your van is that it also helps to protect the paintwork underneath. Imagine how much better your paintwork will fair, over a number of years, with a protective layer of vinyl guarding against scratches and chips.
