Getting your car wrapped is a quick way to enhance your vehicle’s aesthetic. And you can choose between different colours or even printed graphics. There are also different finishes like gloss and chrome.
But perhaps one of the best looking combinations of colour and finish is matte black. It’s simple but just different enough that it sets itself apart from the usual solid paint finishes without being too conspicuous.
How much does it cost, though? And how does it compare to getting a paint job? Read on to learn more.
Factors Affecting Car Wrapping Price
Car wraps vary greatly in price. For example, wraps with matte finishes are typically more expensive than gloss finishes, but this also depends on the quality of the wrap. A matte car wrap isn’t necessarily more expensive if the gloss car wrap is of higher quality. So it’s best to consult a car-wrapping professional to get an estimate.
Size and Complexity
However, the price is only partially determined by the kind of car wrap you choose. A much more important factor is the size and complexity of your car.
The cost for a full car wrap increases with size. A sports coupe, for example, would cost less to wrap than a large sedan at around $3,500 to $3,700. Small 2-door coupes can be wrapped for as low as $2,000.
The cost also increases with your car’s exterior’s complexity. Car bodies that are more curvaceous or have sharply creased panels are harder to work with and cost more to wrap than bodies that are smooth and flat.
Wrapping a sedan with a simple body shape can cost less than a sports coupe at around $3,300. However, similarly sized sedans can cost up to around $4,200 or even $5,500 due to having more complex bodies.
Another factor that can make your particular car harder to work with is its front and rear bumpers. If the bumper covers are harder to remove, it can add to the price.
Additionally, the price varies even more when you consider that you can get your car only partially wrapped, like just the roof or the mirror caps. Each part varies greatly, so the best way to get an estimate on the price is to ask a service provider.
Why Wrap Your Car Instead of Getting it Painted?
There are a number of advantages to getting your car wrapped.
It’s true that a repaint would last longer than a car wrap. But it would also be more expensive. Car wraps are less expensive and are much faster to install.
They also come in a greater variety than paint. If your local auto shop doesn’t offer the colour of paint or finish you want, car wraps are a great alternative for a quick aesthetic change for your car. In addition, it protects your car’s actual paint from scratches and wear.
Car wraps are temporary. This can be a downside for some, but it also means that you get to try out different looks for your car. If it turns out that you don’t like how it looks, it’s always reversible.
