FAQ: Vehicle Wrap Maintenance


How often should I wash my Vehicle Wrap?

You should wash your vehicle at least once per week, or whenever it gets dirty.

How should I wash my Vehicle Wrap? 

We recommend washing it by hand with soap and a sponge to prevent possible damage to the wrap.

Can I power wash my Vehicle Wrap?

While we strongly recommend hand washing, power washing can be used if you:
  • Keep the water pressure below 1200 psi
  • Keep the water temp. below 180*F
  • Keep the nozzle at least 12 inches away from the edges
  • Keep the nozzle perpendicular to the graphic to avoid chipping/lifting the edges.
  • Use a nozzle with a 40 degree wide angle spray pattern

Can I wax my Vehicle Wrap?

You can wax your wrap under a few conditions. The wax cannot have petroleum distillates. Also we do not recommend waxing matte wraps because it will create shiny portions on the wrap.

Can I park my Vehicle Wrap in the sun for long periods of time?

Prolonged exposure to UV Rays can cause degradation of the vinyl. We recommend parking it in the shade, indoors, or under a cover.

What do I do when a difficult contaminant gets on my wrap?

If fuel, bird droppings, etc. get on your wrap, do your best to clean it off ASAP to avoid any potential harm to the wrap.

June Design of the Month

June Design of the Month

Brookhaven Police Department, (PA)

Brookhaven Police Department felt like they were ready for a new look for their fleet and worked with Grafix Shoppe to discover a customized modern look that would fit for their department. Here is what Officer Barth had to say about his experience working with Grafix Shoppe;
"Chief Randolph McGoldrick took over as the new Police Chief and wanted to change the look of the patrol cars from the busy look of “80’s conversion van stripes”. He decided to change the color of the vehicles to all black and assigned Officer Robert Barth with the task of designing the new graphics.

Officer Barth contacted Grafix Shoppe who was very accommodating with tweaking the design. We are very happy with the new design which is very classy and professional looking. The new design is also somewhat stealthy at night."
