Install Custom Car Vinyl Graphics: Transform Your Vehicle in a Day!

Custom decals are thin pieces of vinyl that are applied to the paintwork of cars to change their appearance. They come in a variety of colors and finishes and can be used to personalize your vehicle or help promote a business or service.

Custom vinyl wraps offer the added advantage of protecting your paintwork from environmental damage, such as flying rock chips and bird droppings.  A vinyl-wrapped car generally retains its value far better than a non-wrapped vehicle because once removed, it reveals pristine paintwork.

If your looking for a cost-effective way in which to raise awareness for your business, look no further than custom car vinyl graphics. Intrigued to learn more, call Tinting Chicago at 773-455-0467 or 312-212-0493.

Where to add vinyl lettering on your car

Car decals can be installed on any flat, smooth surface of a vehicle.  The critical decision for customers is whether they want to cover the whole of their car in a vinyl wrap or just part of it.

Full wrap

If you’re looking for maximum impact then you’ll want to cover your entire bodywork with vinyl banners.  This includes the hood, doors, bumpers, side fenders, trunk, roof, and even the back windshield.

Partial wrap

If you’re looking for a more subtle approach to branding your car, then a partial wrap is the way to go.  With a partial wrap, you only cover the most prominent areas of the vehicle, for example, the hood, doors, and back windshield.

Cost of installing custom car vinyl graphics

It costs between $2,000 and $5,000 to fully wrap an average-sized car.  The exact cost depends on the following variables:

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you add vinyl decals to any vehicle?

Yes, decal stickers can be added to any car, van, truck, or boat, so long as the surface is smooth, flat non-porous.

Can you add vinyl material to vehicle windows?

Yes, you can add vinyl material to both the side windows and back windshield of your vehicle. If you're considering adding graphics to the back window, you might want to consider using perforated vinyl that creates a complete graphic on the outside but still allows the driver to see out.

Do decal stickers damage the paintwork on cars?

No, car decals are more likely to protect the paintwork on your vehicle than damage it, as long as they are installed and removed correctly.
