Are you wondering whether to wrap your car in vinyl or opt for a new paint job? You’re not alone! The choice can be overwhelming, but we have some tips to help you decide which is right for you. Car wraps and paint jobs are both effective ways to give your vehicle some new life. A car wrap can make your vehicle look like a brand-new model, while also offering additional protection against rust and corrosion. Similarly, a fresh coat of paint can help turn heads while also protecting the metal underneath from the elements. We can’t help but be slightly judgmental about the choice to get a car wrap instead of a paint job. After all, it’s a lot easier to throw on your favorite piece of vinyl than it is to make sure that 12 gallons of paint are evenly applied in an airtight fashion. Of course, we understand that not everyone has the time or patience required for such tasks. We don’t judge people; we just want them to look their best!

While many pros and cons are associated with each method, there are only certain situations where a professional wrap job is worth every penny spent (or earned). If you’re not sure whether or not you should do it yourself or leave it up to the professionals, here’s why you should consider hiring us when making decisions like this:

Huge Variety of Colors and Graphics

Car wraps are available in a wide variety of colors and graphics. Whether you want to make your car stand out, or match your personality, there is a wrap that will do it for you. You can get a wrap that matches the color of your favorite sports team, promotes your business or trade, or resembles the face of your favorite music artist! The possibilities are endless!

Improved Resale Value

One of the most common reasons people purchase a car wrap over a new paint job is because it offers improved resale value. Car wraps are usually more durable than their painted counterparts and can be removed and reapplied if needed. This means that when you’re ready to sell your vehicle, it will still look like new after removal.

Additionally, many car wraps are less expensive than painting your car from scratch or having an existing paint job repaired. The money saved by opting for a wrap instead of a full-body repaint can help offset costs associated with getting your vehicle wrapped, such as installation fees, licensing fees (if applicable), and other miscellaneous expenses—which makes them even more cost-effective in the long run!

Long Term Protection

Car wraps are a long-term investment—much like a new paint job, they’ll last you for years. Unlike with a new paint job, however, car wraps don’t chip or fade over time. If you’re looking for something that will stay looking fresh and brand new, then you’ve found it in car wraps! The life of your car wrap depends on several factors, including the level of care you take when washing and waxing it. With proper care, you should be able to keep your car looking as good as new for years—and with continued use, even more, people will start asking you about where they can get their custom-designed wraps!

Car wraps can be removed and reapplied as frequently as needed without damaging your vehicle. This means if there comes a time when you want to change the appearance of your car again (or just remove whatever design you currently have), all it takes is some soap and water to get rid of any glue on the surface that’s keeping them on. There’s no need to worry about scraping away at soft paint like with traditional painting techniques!

Quicker Application Process

Most people assume that getting a car wrap is more expensive than having the vehicle painted. However, this is not always the case. While paint jobs often require several days to complete, much of that time is spent on prep work and drying time between coats. Furthermore, during this time your vehicle will be sitting in an enclosed area where you cannot use it for transportation or daily activities.


Car wraps can be applied within hours and are much less disruptive to your daily routine (as long as you don’t mind driving around with what looks like a giant sticker on your car). Additionally, they’re easier to remove than paint jobs if you decide that you made a mistake with color or design choice—no painting over mistakes here!

Car wraps are better than new paint jobs

New paint jobs are expensive, and they don’t last as long. The average lifespan of a new paint job is 5 years. But your car wrap can last up to 10 years or more!

If you want to save some cash, consider getting a car wrap instead of a new paint job. You can remove it at any time, and apply it to another vehicle (or the same one). The average cost of a car wrap is $500-2000. It depends on how large your vehicle is and how many colors you want it in. You can get a wrap for any type of vehicle, including cars, trucks, and even boats!

All in all, we think that wraps are a great alternative and investment to paint jobs. They’re cheaper, they last longer and they can be applied in less time. Plus, they’re available in a huge variety of colors and graphics so you can customize your car to suit your tastes. And if the next time you’re ready for a change in appearance, all you need is an experienced installer who knows how to remove them (which isn’t hard at all), like our professionals at  Pasadena Image Printing. If you’re looking for a way to customize your car that’s cheaper than paint jobs and lasts longer than regular vinyl decals, wraps are the perfect solution.
