Wrapping truck in just black vinyl?

Discussion in 'Vehicle Graphics' started by bayviewsignworks, Oct 20, 2009.

  1. Customer want to wrap their vehicle in black vinyl (intead of paint it), and also have the grahics in print as well. Most of the vehicle will not have much graphics. Should we just print black/laminate and apply? I know there is black wrap but it's wicked expensive. We have a VP-300.

    painting a vehicle black seems to me to be easier and less expensive than wrapping. i get people asking about just wrapping there car in one color and i would still have to charge for all the labor of the install, so it always comes out better to just have it painted.

    Would be cheaper to paint it. If they are still wanting vinyl use 3M black vinyl, no printing needed, a 50 yard roll is only $300 or so.
  4. Thanks guys. Maybe he'll end up painting, but we'll price it out.

    i had a customer that wanted that and after i gave him the price he said he wasn't paying that much
    it is so much cheaper to get it painted
    not sure what they are thinking
