Custom Car Wraps, Truck Wraps, Boat Wraps and Vehicle Wraps

Car wraps, truck wraps, boat wraps, and all types of vehicle wraps have become highly popular in recent years. Not only do they give you the option to completely change your car's appearance, but a wrap can also provide ample, long-term protection to the paint and the surface of your vehicle. These stylish-yet-protective layers can help prevent the chips and blemishes that often occur with daily driving and exposure to the elements.

A wrap on your vehicle has been proven to be one of the best ways to promote your brand. Or you may be looking to upgrade the look of your car, truck or boat. A vehicle wrap may be the answer to your problem. Sign Art Etc in Lafayette Indiana, the top-rated car wrap facility in central Indiana, can help with your wrap project.

How much does it cost to wrap a car? And what does the process entail? Letís look at some standard costs associated with wrapping a vehicle and detail some of the various options available today. We will focus on car, truck, boat and vehicle wraps at the Sign Art Etc Facility located in Lafayette Indiana.

Wrapping A Car: An Overview

In many ways, wrapping a car seems like a relatively straightforward practice. In reality, it is a task that requires both Knowledge, expertise, and the right equipment to execute correctly. Let's walk through the process of wrapping a vehicle.

There are some vital questions that must be asked by both the vehicle owner and the professional who will be applying the wrap:

  • What is the make and model of the car?The complexity of the design directly affects the time needed to wrap a vehicle, varying the cost accordingly.
  • Does the car have any kind of body kit? Cars with custom body kits usually add to the intricacies of the wrap, due in large part to the unique angles and creases of the aftermarket alterations
  • What vinyl hue do you want? Standard vinyl hues are offered in three different finishes - gloss, matte, or satin.
  • What parts of the car do you want to be wrapped? Maybe you want to get the car wrapped top to bottom for commercial purposes (as a means to promote your business). Or perhaps you arenít looking to have your entire vehicle wrapped, but rather just apply a carbon-fiber hood or a partial wrap. Each option and approach will be priced differently depending on these factors.

A detailed inspection and preparation of the car before applying a wrap is essential, including checking for damage on the original paint. A vinyl wrap does not properly adhere to the damaged surface, making it difficult (and sometimes impossible) to execute a clean, proper installation. The surface needs to be near perfect for the vinyl wrap to effectively grip and form-fit the car. A vehicle must also undergo a thorough cleaning process to remove any dust, dirt, or grime before applying a vinyl wrap.

What Else to Look For?
You will want to ensure that your car will be cleaned and wrapped in a pristine indoor environment. You want the vinyl printing and cutting done on site. You want a combination of equipment, facility and expertise in place to guarentee a great looking result. Sign Art Etc has the facility, equipment and people to ensure your project can be done cost efficiently and look fabulous at completion.

Cost Of Wrapping A Car

Most costs incurred from having your car professionally wrapped result from the labor-intensive nature of the process. The following price approximations generally apply to the easiest and most basic wrap applications. For example, a Tesla is surprisingly one of the simplest vehicles to wrap due to its smooth, flat, and simple exterior design. Once you begin including upgrades such as special vinyl, custom designs, and wheel wrapping, the price starts to increase.

Here are the average baseline costs of having a professional apply a wrap to your vehicle.

  • Compact car or coupe: Prices vary depending on design, but start around $2,000.
  • Family sedan: The average family sedan would run you about $3,000.
  • Compact crossover: Most compact crossover vehicles start at around $3,500.
  • Full-size SUV: A Full-size SUV is likely to start at about $4,000.
  • Panel Van: A Panel Van is likely to start at about $4,500.
  • Full-size pickup: A Full-size pickup is likely to start at about $3,500.


Even for the experienced and knowledgeable team at Sign Art Etc in Lafayette Indiana, wrapping a car is a time-consuming process. If you want to commit your vehicle to a professional (which we wholeheartedly advise), you will likely spend at least $2,000 for a car wrap. Insist that your vehicle be wrapped in a clean indoor environment with the vinyl printer and cutter onsite so any changes can be done rapidly and quickly.
