Custom wrap just about anything with adhesive vinyl.
The photo of the vehicle wrap to the left is a great example of the fun use of vinyl with cars, and is an industry standard for mobile advertising, that is widely seen all over the streets of the U.S.A. on all styles of vehicles. And while vehicle wraps are very trendy and popular to trick out your mode of transportation, most people don't realize that lots of other things can be wrapped with adhesive vinyl, to create a totally custom look on just about any smooth non-porous surface. Wrapping something gives it character and a uniqueness that can be swapped out, with no damage to the underlying surface, by utilizing digitally printed decals or colored cut vinyl.
Clear vinyl decals for the budget-minded.
Clear vinyl decals save you money and look great.
Typically decals are printed on white vinyl material and can either be applied "as is" with the white background or "cut-to-shape" to eliminate having a white background so that just the graphics or lettering are visible. A standard decal print on white is the cheapest route, but your stuck with the white background; while cutting a decal to shape incurs extra costs, depending on the intricacy of the cut, to eliminate the white background. That's where clear vinyl decals come to the rescue...by offering an inexpensive printing solution that technically has no background color and doesn't need to be cut to shape!
