Vehicle wraps can take many shapes, colors and sizes. A full wrap covers the entire surface of the car or vehicle. A partial wrap from Graphic Creations covers only a specific portion of the vehicle and uses the vehicle’s paint scheme as the backdrop for the full design. Vehicle wraps are done with vinyl materials (think of it as a large decal) that conform to the shape of your vehicle. They can be done in solid colors as “paint replacement” or can have digitally printed designs on the vinyl to really make your vehicle stand out.
Here's a quick comparison of typical advertising mediums to see how wraps compare:
We wrap with Avery Dennison and 3M car wrap materials (unless otherwise requested) which are formulated with removable adhesive that does not harm your car's paint. In fact, the vinyl will actually protect your paint. If high-quality materials are used and the vinyl is installed correctly (without the use of adhesive promoters), your paint will look just the same as it did the day your wrap was put on. This leads to higher resale costs in the future, and a longer life for your vehicle's surface in general. Of course, you still must care for your wrap just like you would your paint. Find out about wrap care on our wrap care page.
A wrap that is taken care of well can last up to seven years. However, most people either want to change up their graphics/color or, due to lack of cleaning or care, see fading or cracking before the seventh year. In our experience, we expect a lifetime of about 5-7 years for color change films (Avery Dennison, 3M, etc) and about 5 years for digitally printed wraps.

Yes the window graphics are printed on a perforated vinyl that allows you to see through the rear and side rear windows.
No, state laws prohibit the use of wraps on driver and passenger side windows, as well as the windshield.
On most automobiles the roof is included. Generally roofs are not wrapped on vans, trucks or SUVs unless it is requested by the customer.
A painted plastic bumper can be wrapped without any problems. In the case of fiber-glass or chrome bumpers, application of vinyl on these areas are not recommended or guaranteed to adhere for the duration of the life of the wrap.
Absolutely! If it rolls or floats, we can wrap it! We also install graphics and textured vinyls on walls and windows. Visit our pages to see some past project examples.
Not a problem. We can print and install graphic overlays, so that information may be removed or replaced if you need to change or update your car wrap.
