The Vehicle Wrapping Process

Your car is essentially an extension of you; a neat, well kept car exterior shows people you’re professional and care about your image. However, everything on the roads from the other drivers to the pebbles to the sun are constantly eating away at your paint job and your car’s image. Preemptively protect your car with a highly customizable vinyl wrap from the professionals at Zach Wraps! Read about our meticulous wrapping process below and get connected with us today to get your car customized and protected!

Our Process

Bucket with soapy water for cleaning

Properly prepare and plan for the process of wrapping the car

Car wrapping takes a set of skills, equipment, and a professional eye that not everyone has. The results from Zach Wraps speak for themselves in the cleanliness and professionalism that oozes off the vinyl.
Detailing exterior of car

Decontaminate and clean the outside of the car

For the best results, all debris, no matter the size, must be removed from the car’s surface to allow the vinyl to closely hug the paint. This step is extremely important to the final product; any cut corners in this step will be noticed later in the form of bumps and inconsistencies. To ensure all debris is removed, we utilize the following:

  • Foam Baths
  • Clay Bars
  • Isopropyl Alcohol

Blowing off dirt and water

Blow off any excess water and dry the vehicle

Water needs to be removed from the surface in order for a clean connection of vinyl on the car. Besides utilizing a towel, we wait about 12 hours in order for any remaining water in small crevices to evaporate leaving a completely dry surface.
Car trim being prepped for vinyl wrap

While drying, the car is disassembled at certain areas to ensure a tight wrap across the entire car

To get the clean and crisp looking car wrap, some car features need to be temporarily removed. You need a professional to make sure that this step isn’t skipped and that the car can be properly put back together afterwards. The parts disassembled include: 

  • Door handles
  • Antennas
  • Sometimes bumpers, depending on the car and the wrap selected.

Measuring vinyl wrap application area

Take measurements and always leave a little extra vinyl

You can always cut away excess vinyl, but if you don’t have enough, there are major problems. We don’t cut corners here and our wraps look fantastic because of this.

Cleaning surface with microfiber cloth

Double check the area is clean, wipe down with 99% isopropyl alcohol, and apply the film

Yes, the cleanliness of the car’s surface prior to applying the film is that important to us. Because we strive to provide the best wrapping job possible, this step must be taken seriously.

Removing air bubbles from brown vinyl wrap

Squeegee out any air and cut the film to the correct size

This step presses the vinyl onto the car and begins to show the final product. All cuts must be precise and made with extreme caution to prevent any cutting to the vehicle below while also making sure there is enough vinyl to cover the surface. A steady hand and experience is a must for the best results.

Once cut, tuck in all edges to seal them in while applying heat for a uniform, clean seal

Using a heat gun, the wrap is closely sealed to the surface of the car, preventing any peeling. All corners of the car are gone over to eliminate any blemishes and to create the uniform appearance that our professional car wraps have.

Porche with Hood Wrap

The wrapping process takes between 5 to 7 days depending on the size of the vehicle

To create the best product, time is needed to ensure the surfaces are clean, all air is squeezed out, and each corner is properly sealed. Large vehicles will require more time and attention to achieve the final product.

Zach did an awesome job on some trim for my daughter's car. We were in a situation that needed a quick turnaround and he turned it around quick with quality work. Now I'm looking for more stuff to wrap. LoL

Zach’s work was second to none with incredible attention to detail. He was able to fit me in short notice and even made some custom pieces with the vinyl I brought. If you need vinyl done right give he’s place a try, you won’t be disappointed. Worth the drive and the money…finally found a shop for vinyl that I can trust.

I am SO HAPPY with my wrap! Zach is great, above and beyond customer service, friendly and professional. His workmanship is phenomenal, excellent attention to detail. My husband and I were looking at a few places to get our car wrapped, and Zach's prices were in line with other shops. We were impressed that Zach was much more communicative than anyone from the other shops, plus he was able to get our wrap ordered right away and started as soon as it arrived. He also offers a range of customizations like embossing and badge wrapping. If you're considering a wrap and hesitant, I 100% recommend going for it. All my hesitation evaporated when I saw it. It took my pretty basic but practical crossover and gave it a Personality. I LOVE IT! Thank you Zach!
