Graphics and alignment as applied to vehicles may not be precisely matched to the digital images ("proofs") produced for Client's review. Graphics applied to vehicles are intended to be viewed from a distance of at least 15 feet and Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC produces each vehicle graphic with the detail and quality appropriate for viewing from such distance. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC only guarantees final prints designed and set-up by Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC for print. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC voids warranty on express rush same day printing and lamination wherein installation schedule prohibits proper 24 hour print curing. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC expressly disclaims all warranties regarding paint jobs on non-standard OEM cars and trucks. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC expressly disclaims all warranties on buses, planes, trains, RVs, custom vehicles and vehicles with OEM paint that is more than 6 years old. If we are asked to cover existing vinyl decals, we cannot be liable for any damage caused to these decals during the installation or removal process.
Although we try to make the wrap look like a paint job, it is NOT paint. There may be extreme curves and bumps such as rivets and deep channel curves and moldings on the vehicle that the vinyl will not be able to conform to. In some small areas you will see evidence of the original color of the vehicle below the wrap. These may be small areas such as around door handles and the edges of the lights on the vehicles. A vehicle wrap is made by applying 52 inch vertical panels of vinyl. There will be 1 inch seams where the panels meet. On a complex design with many matching points, Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC cannot guarantee that the graphics will match 100% alignment due to extreme complex curves on the vehicle. A 5% margin is considered acceptable on large outdoor advertising projects.
Proofs are created on a flat surface and viewed at a relatively tiny size on computer screens and 8 inch printed paper. In cases of curves, handles, deep grooves, rubber moldings/trim, on-the-spot adjustments may be made by the installer to assure maximum readability or alignment. In many cases there are slight differences between the printed flat paper proof and the 3 dimensional curved vehicle wrap.Due to the fact that a two dimensional print is being applied to a three dimensional vehicle, and due to the minor variances in the accuracy of the templates, the positioning of a vehicle wrap can vary from the proof by several cms throughout the entire length of a vehicle wrap. This is normal and wraps need to be designed with this in mind.
It is not reasonable to expect an inkjet-printed vinyl wrap to cover and look exactly like paint, or to look exactly the same in all places. A piece of vinyl has limits and can only stretch so much before it changes color. In some cases, a relief cut has to be made in the vinyl that will reveal a small amount of the vehicle's original paint color underneath. In some cases, the only option is to install a patch in order to conceal a vehicle's original color. Areas under door handles, mirrors, behind gas caps, and inside door frames will not be wrapped. If we wrap extremely curved surfaces such as mirrors and bumpers, they may reveal the original paint color at the tight edges of the wrap. This is due to material limitations rather than install quality.If we are installing at the Client's nominated location, suitable conditions must exist. Vehicles need to be indoors in a clean, dust-free temperature-controlled environment, with a power supply and good quality lighting, and with a minimum of 5 feet working space around the entire vehicle. If in the opinion of the senior installer on site, conditions are not suitable for the high quality install of the wrap / graphics, the vehicle will be required to go to one of our nominated install locations.
Wraps are self-adhesive vinyl that will only adhere well to catalyzed vehicle paint and glass. Poor surface paint or clear coats will not allow the vinyl adhesive to stick properly and the adhesive may fail. It is the responsibility of the vehicle owner to bring in a vehicle that is ready to be wrapped. Extreme curves and deep pockets may exceed the limits of how far the material can stretch. Again, this is not paint, it is a special pressure sensitive vinyl material. Vehicles are not at exact right angle curves, they maintain lines that are not 100% parallel to the ground. Due to this fact, the graphics that are 2D printed graphics will not be at the same exact angle of the vehicle lines once the wrap is installed onto the 3D vehicle surface.Due to the limitations and the sensitivity of the various substrates, it is impossible to reproduce all colors accurately. Therefore, in the absence of a representative from your company to select the appropriate color sample, reproduction will be at our discretion. When we wrap over existing vinyl strips or letters, the new wrap is thin enough on top that there will be evidence that there is old vinyl underneath the new vinyl. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC cannot be held responsible for any damage void of vehicle warrantee or anything caused through the application of the vinyl products. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC is not liable if during the installation of a wrap the clear coat of the car begins to peel off.
The application process in many cases takes longer than a day or two for full wraps, and within one day for partial. The installation process should not be rushed, therefore Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC reserves the right to take an additional day for issues such as transportation and weather conditions. It is illegal to cover the front driver side glass. In some cases the police may also stop you for covering the passenger side glass. Police need to be able to see into a vehicle. In some cases the Client may insist that the passenger side is wrapped in the design, and Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC will wrap it with the disclaimer stating that the Client is responsible for any issues regarding the coverage of the front windows.
The wrap material that is used for vehicle wraps does not stick very well to plastic or rubber parts, such as window trim, side plastic moldings, and plastic door handles. It is advised that these areas NOT be wrapped with adhesive vinyl. Initially the vinyl will stick, but over a short period of time such as a few months, the vinyl will fall off these areas.
In most cases of vinyl lifting, if it is a materials problem the lifting will present itself in the first few weeks after the initial installation. In most cases it is advised that the vehicle wrap be fixed so that the vinyl does not continue to peel back and become contaminated. It is not uncommon to see small areas of the wrap lifting soon after the installation is complete. Several factors can affect the vinyl's adhesives ability to stick to the vehicle surface, including the following:– If the surface is not prepared properly before the wrap– Extreme temperatures (very hot or very cold)– Extreme humidity in the air during installation– Dust in the air during installation
Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC prefers to use our facility for installation. If the Client elects to have installation performed at a non-Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC location, Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC will not be held liable for any issues related to improper install conditions such as temperature or dust.
Full wraps DO NOT automatically include the roof wrap. The additional cost of labor and materials to wrap a roof can range from $250.00 for a small car, up to $600.00 for a cargo van roof wrap. Most clients do not wrap the roof of their vehicles.
Printing takes time, and ink must be dry before prints can be laminated. Once prints are ready, installation will begin. This is not a task that can be rushed, as this type of work is all done by hand and the perfect placement of vinyl takes time. From the time that the design is completed and approved by our Client, a wrap can be printed and installed within 10 to 14 days. In some cases it can all be completed in 5 days, once the design is approved.
All removals are quoted separately. Wrap removal can be very time-consuming and we charge by the square foot and by the hour for the labor. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC cannot be held responsible for any paint damage or existing striping damage when we do a removal. Since we do not know the integrity of the existing paint job, or the condition of the painted clear coat, or the condition of any existing vinyl decals, we are not responsible. All removal Clients understand this to be accepted policy by contracting Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC to do a vinyl removal on any vehicle. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC cannot be held liable if during the removal of the wrap, the clear coat or vehicle paint is peeled back with the wrap. In some cases, if you have existing vinyl stripes under the wrap (such as an RV or a bus that have striping on the sides), we cannot be held liable if portions of the stripes get removed during the wrap removal. We only use industry standard glue removal products to remove any remaining glue once the vinyl has been lifted. Vehicle wraps should be replaced every 3 to 4 years. Most vinyl manufactures such as 3M and Avery recommend this to allow for clean removals. Leaving vinyl on a vehicle for too long is problematic. As soon as you see the vinyl beginning to crack, this is the sign that the wrap should be removed in that area and rewrapped if needed.
Horizontal surfaces such as the roof and front hoods receive extreme sun and heat damage. In many cases, the sun will bake the vinyl into the paint on these horizontal surfaces if the vinyl remains on the vehicle for more than 4 years. Most vehicle wrap vinyl materials are guaranteed to remove cleanly from vertical surfaces for up to 4 years when applied onto original car paint. Vinyl that is cracked on the roof or on the front hood indicates sun and heat exposure damage to the original vinyl, and the heat has baked the vinyl into the vehicle's painted surface. If this is the case, paint damage may occur with the removal of the vinyl from that area. Vinyl that is cracked like this will only peel off in small pieces when removed. When the vinyl has expired its term of clean removability, paint damage may be unavoidable and Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC will not be held liable for any paint damage that results from expired vinyl with prolonged exposure to the sun and heat.
Often when there is striping on the vehicle prior to a new vehicle wrap, the old vinyl has been weakened from years of sun exposure. The old striping adhesive can become weak, and in some areas the striping will come up as the wrap is removed. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC is not responsible if old stripes come off during the removal of a wrap. When we wrap over existing vinyl stripes or letters, the new wrap is thin enough on top that there will be evidence that there is old vinyl underneath the new vinyl. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC will not be held responsible in any way if the Client is not happy because existing graphics could not be removed using conventional methods of removal.
Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC does not use any steel or metal knives during the removal process. We use plastics that will not damage the vehicle's surface. Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC does NOT engage in unconventional methods of vinyl graphics removal because it may damage the surface of the Client's vehicle. Unconventional methods include cutting or scraping of the vehicle surface or the use of harsh chemicals that may damage the vehicle's painted surface.In some extreme cases when the wrap has been on the vehicle for more than 4 years, the wrap may no longer be removable and the vehicle may need to go to a body shop to be sanded and repainted. If the vehicle requires a body shop, Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC will refer the Client to a body shop and the Client shall be responsible for paying the body shop.
We cannot be responsible for damage to paintwork when the vinyl is removed, and would not advise application of a wrap on a re-sprayed surface, or poor quality/rusted paintwork. Please note, our experience shows that removal of vinyl designed for vehicle wraps from good quality factory original paintwork, in most cases will not damage the paintwork. However, it is the duty and responsibility of the owner of the vehicle to ensure suitability of the existing surface before it is wrapped. In the event that Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC is asked to remove pre-installed vinyl which was installed by a company other than Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC, Vero Beach Custom Signs LLC will make every effort to remove the existing vinyl, but will not be held responsible for any damage that may occur to the surface of the painted vehicle after removal. This is due to the fact that not all preinstalled vinyl is designed to be removed. In many cases pre-existing vinyl is non-removable.
An $80 fee will be added to the invoice for all vehicles that have not been recently washed (i.e., the vehicle must be clean, not waxed). This fee includes the labor cost of washing your vehicle by our certified installers. To avoid this charge, please wash your vehicle before your installation specialist arrives on-site.
