    Just a personal thing - not aimed at your work specifically - I HATE WRAPS !!!!

    So there.... I said it lol..... I have outed myself.....

    I think I have seen maybe 2 in the whole time they have been around that actually work and look good.

    Most are cluttered, stacked with chit that makes no sense, and of poor design.

    A wrap should be approached the same as a billboard - able to be read at 100kmh. If that doesn't happen - FAIL.

    But top marks on the application - looks like a good job.

    Cheers - G

    PS. Never done a wrap and have no intention of ever doing one.

    Well apparently a guy at the ISA show, who is a professional wrapper by trade," told me that it takes him 22 hrs for a full vehicle wrap.. i kinda cringed when he told me that cause it takes us like half. Maybe we're just that pro?
    Anyways. We did this in 5 pieces. 2 sides, roof, hood, and back. And then 2 other pieces for the bumper.

    Well, I think the design is neat. As crazy wild as it is.... I think it still does its job and quite well..... not to mention you did a fantastic job wrapping it. In 5 hours yet. I might have one side done in an hour.... :Big Laugh

    Anyway, my only comment is..... and it's more of a question .... why are the doors blank ?? Why didn't you incorporate the craziness and beef up the name instead of having a blank door ?? [I know they're wrapper in plain green, just why not continue the design].

    I Agree Gino. It's a really ODD break in the design. They sent it to us designed.. we had no say in it :(

    Very nice wrap Job!! Does your 6-7 hours include your cleaning time? I usually spend a couple hours on prep work alone.

    Gino, I wondered the same thing as you but after looking at it again...your eye can't help but get drawn straight to that green panel, which is quite effective for the advertisement...much more so than having that busy background.

    Most times this is true. You want a wrap to be able to get the point across while in transit so that the people around you driving are able to get the info quickly and remember it.

    However for this type of wrap its more about a stationary display. This will be outside bars, liqour stores, etc. So all it really needs to do is STAND OUT. And it will do exactly that. Kinda like the Monster Energy Drink trucks and the Red Bull Cars. If they get attention on the road - great. But its not their primary target.
