What is a wrap?

A wrap is the application of large scale digitally printed vinyl.  The vinyl is laminated and stuck directly to the surface of whatever is being wrapped.  The application is done with such precision that the wrap is often mistaken for paint.

What can be wrapped?

You can wrap just about anything, but there are some limitations such as rust, orange peel clear coats, oxidation, and petroleum based substrates (synthetic plastics). If you were to wrap these items, there is no telling how long the vinyl will last and adhere to the surface.

How effective is a vehicle wrap?

A vehicle wrap is the most effective form of advertising in the market today. One car wrap gets 30,000-70,000 views per day on average.  With a wrap you are able to elevate your business by increasing your visibility and brand recognition on a daily basis.

How to price the hull of your wrap:

Cost of the printed wrap vinyl is $7.00 per square foot. Square footage is calculated based off the total length of the boat on a 5' foot (60"in) wide sheet of vinyl. If the max width of your boat is less than 30" in, then we can price both sides of your wrap on just one 5' foot (60"in) wide sheet times the length of your boat.

•Example 1: A boat that is 30'ft long (360"in), by 3'ft max width (36"in) (printed on a 60"in (5'ft) wide sheet) the formula would be: 30'ft x 5'ft = 150sqft x 2 (both port and starboard sides) = 300sqft x $7.00 = $2,100.00

•Example 2: A boat that is 30'ft long (360"in), by 2'ft max width (24"in) (printed on a 60"in ('5ft) wide sheet) the formula would be: 30'ft x 5'ft = 150sqft x 1 (both port and starboard sides can be printed on one 5ft wide sheet) = 150sqft x $7.00 = $1,050.00

As you can see, if your max width is under 30in (half of the 60in wide sheet) then we can print on one sheet for both sides of your boat which will bring your total cost down. 

How to price your transom:

Transom is priced the same way the sides are. 

•Example 1: A transom that is 12'ft wide (144"in), by 3'ft max width (36"in) (printed on a 60"in (5'ft) wide sheet) the formula would be: 12'ft x 5'ft = 60sqft x $7.00 = $420.00

How to price your installation:

Please click the "Add to quote" button, or call our instillation and production department for a quote on instillation at (386) 341-9392

How to find your total price:

 Just add up your art fee, plus your vinyl cost, plus your instillation cost to get your total cost.

Custom Art Process

How do I get a custom art design for my boat?

  

Care and Maintenance

How do I clean my wrap?

Use a non-abrasive soft brush or cloth with dish soap to remove everyday dirt and grim. For “stains” like bug guts use isopropyl alcohol with a paper towel. Avoid car washes and pressure washers as they may cause damage and/or lifting of the wrap.

Do I need to wax my wrap?

No, waxing is not necessary as the vinyl has a protective over laminate that protects the inks and vinyl.

Will the wrap damage my paint?

 No, the adhesive on the wrap is strong enough to hold, but gentle enough not to damage the surface it's stuck to.  It will actually protect the paint from the sun’s harmful UV Rays. Once you remove the wrap, the paint will look as good as the day it was installed.

 

Materials and Durability

What type of wrap do we use?

We use Avery Dennison Wrapping Films. Avery Dennison Wrapping Films are expertly designed adhesive films that you can use for a variety of applications.

Is the vinyl wrap protected?

Yes, all of our wraps are laminated which protects the vinyl from UV rays and minor surface scratches. The wrap is still a vinyl sticker and should be well taken care of to best prolong its life.

How long will my wrap last?

A wrap that is taken care of will last between 5 to 7 years, but it's recommended that the wrap be replaced around 4 years.

Are wraps permanent?

Wraps are not permanent. Often people choose wraps for the ease of changeability.

 

Installation  

How long does the instillation take?

Installation typically only takes 1 day to complete. 

Can you travel to me to do my boat wrap instillation, or do I need to bring my boat to your shop? 

Yes, we can travel to the location of your boat to do the instillation on site for you. Or, you can bring the boat to our shop where we can do the instillation for you as well. We cant wrap the boat in the rain, so your boat needs to be under a covering if its raining out. A travel distance fee will be applied if we come to you. 

How do I prepare my boat to be wrapped and what add-on services are available to assist with this preparation?

Clients can prep hull by removing existing items listed below prior to wrapping.   Acetone will remove glue from decals. Clients can have boat buffed and detailed prior to arrival.

The following add-on services are available by our installer: 
-existing wrap removal ($4.50/sqft)
