A shiny car can turn heads. But what does it take to keep a car looking its best? It takes a lot of elbow grease and a little know-how. But what is the best option if your vehicle has seen better days – should you go for a fresh coat of paint or a car wrap?

When deciding whether to paint your car or have it wrapped, there are several considerations. Painting is the obvious choice to change your vehicle's color. However, installing a paint protection film is the answer if you want to protect your car's paint job or change the look of your vehicle without changing the color.

Full vehicle wraps offer more benefits compared to painting. They are more durable, can be removed without damaging the paint, and provide complete coverage. If you are still deciding which option to choose, consider this article.

What Are Vehicle Wraps?

A vehicle wrap is a large vinyl graphic or decal applied to a vehicle's surface and comprises three layers: an adhesive backing, a printed picture, and a transparent laminate layer. Paint protection film can also be applied to cars, buses, vans, trucks, trailers, boats, and even airplanes.

The benefits of vehicle wraps are numerous. They are an excellent form of advertising that can generate a lot of attention for your business. They are also a great way to protect your vehicle's paint job from scratches, nicks, and UV rays. And if you ever decide to sell your car, a wrap can increase its resale value.

Many companies choose to wrap their fleets to add custom logos to the outside of their vehicles. It can be a brilliant way to promote your brand and make your cars more recognizable. Individual drivers may also want the look of a high-quality paint job for a fraction of the cost. Wrapping your vehicles can give you both of these benefits and more.

Better Quality

There are a few reasons why vehicle wraps are higher quality than paints. For one, wraps are made with thicker vinyl, which is less likely to rip or tear. They also have a UV protective layer that helps prevent fading. And finally, wraps can be printed with higher-quality inks that resist fading and peeling.

As we all know, one of the main reasons why vehicle wraps are so popular is because they provide a much higher level of quality than traditional paint jobs. A paint protection film offers an extra layer of protection for your car's paint and makes the wrap last longer. A good quality PPF can make a wrap last up to 7 years!

Lower Costs

A fresh paint job can make a difference to the look of your vehicle. But many people need to realize that a paint job requires much more maintenance than a vehicle wrap, which can lead to higher costs over time.

An impressive paint job can cost more than double that of a professional vehicle wrap, and many companies with fleets choose them over paint. The main reason is that a properly installed vehicle wrap will last much longer and keep your vehicles looking newer for much longer. Color can fade, chip, and peel over time, but a vehicle wrap will keep your cars looking fresh and new for years.


There are many reasons why vehicle wraps are superior to car paint. First, wraps are much more durable and can last for years. They are also much easier to care for and can be washed like any other car.

Additionally, wraps protect the paint underneath and can be removed without damaging the paint. Finally, wraps are much cheaper than paint and can be installed much faster.
