    I've actually considered wrapping mine. I have two 12'w. x 14'h. doors but I'm having a hard time coming up with a theme that I would like? The doors are big so it wouldn't be too cheap, even with me printing my own.

    they sure have some creative pictures ... sure wish I had the printer must admit

    If you got a printer there is no reason you should be broke with a little bit of know how

    Those aren't wraps. They're tarpaulins. Don't know how they would velcro to a paneled door though.

    It's doable as long as they don't open the garage door. A proper garage door graphic would easily run one another $125.00USD not including travel time.

    Wish I could wrap my door but too many deep recesses.

    This will work.

    No paint, 20lbs of Bondo, maybe.

    See the pic. The recesses are 1/2" deep.

    Not my home, BTW, just the style of door.

    I'd love to wrap it. Change the wraps per holiday or season.

    i know a few ppl that sell these in the US.

    about 20yrs ago we screenprinted banner panels that were sewn together to make a tent to cover houses for an extermination/fumigation company that when the building was covered made it look like a castle.

    i also printed large banner panels for a mall in a coastal town to cover the store display windows when a new store was under construction or changing their displays that made the windows look like an aquarium.

    and my last one for a contractor we printed banners to cover the holes where windows and doors would go on newly constructed homes that looked like windows and the interior of a lavish home but behind the banners there was just framing and concrete in reality.

    fun projects..

    PAINT FILLS THE RECESSES....
    my 10x12 is a sectional door, and has 3/4" horizontial ribs every foot. and you put paint in there, so there is no break.
