Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q)
What is a Car Wrap?
A vehicle or car wrap refers to the process of covering up part(s) or the entire surface of a vehicle or fleet of vehicles using Vinyl. Vehicle wraps can range from color changes (wrapping the entire car in a solid color that completely covers the original paint job) to digitally printed full-color designs printed on vinyl material using large-capacity printers.
The best thing about our car wraps is that they also protect your car’s paint from minor scratches, dirt, and debris. They can also be reversed without any damage to your vehicle’s original paint.
How Much Time Does a Car Wrap Take?
This will depend on the type of car wrap you choose, and the make and model of the car. Most commercial wraps for most cars can be completed in 24 hours or less while Color changes may take 48 hours or less.
More complex wraps may take between 2 days to a week. However, once we determine exactly what you need, we will be able to tell you exactly how long the vehicle wrap will take. Please give us a call.

The vinyl is applied on your car using a very removable adhesive. As such, the vehicle wraps can be removed without any damage occurring to the car’s original paint job.

Can Every Car Be Wrapped?
Not everything can be wrapped. Please note that not all car wrap companies are the same and others are just in it for the money. They may just agree to wrap any vehicle provided you have the money. The truth is that not everything can be wrapped and anyone who tells you they can is not being genuine with you.
At Armour Wraps, we do not wrap cheap older cars, classics, cars that come in some colors and some objects. We believe that all our clients should get value of their money and we are dedicated to giving people high quality finishes. If this is not possible, we cannot accept a request.
Please get in touch with us for more information on this.
Can a Car Wrap be a DIY Project?
Not unless you want a shoddy job, absolutely not. Installing a vehicle wrap is a complex process that requires skill and attention to detail and is best left to professionals.
Is it Possible to Wash or Polish a Car with a Wrap on it?
Yes, there are several car washes that are suitable for washing cars that have been wrapped. This include; handwashing using a soft sponge and warm water or using a touch less carwash. You can also use a high pressure car wash provided that you ensure that the control valve is held at least 12 inches away from the car.
However, it is highly unadvisable to wash a using a fully mechanical soft cloth car wash. Waxing is not really necessary but if you want to, it is advisable to use spray on wax instead of solid waxes. Do not wax matte and satin wraps.
Polishing is neither recommended nor required.
What is better; repainting a Car or Wrapping it?
Many people think wrapping or painting is part of the same process. This is not true. Wrapping and painting are two different things that require completely different processes. While color change wraps are often used as a cheaper and more flexible alternative to car paints, repainting is more expensive and less temporary. However, there are unique situations where a car may require a complete repaint job.
