How long does a car wrap last? This question comes up frequently and the answer isn’t as simple as it might seem at first glance.
Full vehicle wraps can last anywhere from 3 to 5 years, depending on variables like how often you wash your car, if you live in a humid or hot climate, and how much sun exposure your car receives. This information doesn’t apply to small-scale graphics that only cover part of your vehicle; those should last about 3-4 years before needing reapplication.
While it’s clear that paint is more durable than a vinyl wrap, you can still take a few steps to ensure your wrap will last as long as possible. Clean and dry your vehicle before applying any kind of wrap to it. Dirt, oil, and other particles will hinder your application and reduce its lifespan. Make sure you choose a reputable company that installs materials manufactured by quality companies like 3M. If you don’t know much about products or brands, ask for references from current customers or consult websites like ours for some tips on how to avoid lower-quality materials.
