Do Vehicle Wraps Damage your Vehicle Paint?

Should I Wrap or Not?

Vehicle wraps offer many benefits to business owners as they are an extremely cost-effective way to brand and market your business. And the main concern for car owners is if this form of advertising can damage a vehicle’s paint or leased vehicle paint for that matter.
