Benefits of using White Vinyl Door Wraps over Painting:


Cost Savings: Wrapping vehicle doors with 3M vinyl is significantly more cost effective than painting the doors. Additionally, the cost and time to repaint the doors black at the time of resale will be eliminated by using this option.

“I can get my cost of the graphics back from the improved resale at auction” -Sgt. Ramstad, St. Paul Police Department

Flexibility: Change a marked squad into an unmarked squad car by simply removing the vinyl from the doors.

Easy Conversion: Keep the streets clear of civilians driving Black & White cars by removing the vinyl and selling the all black vehicle.

Xtreme Wrap

Posted on July 6, 2014

Piranha X, the lifestyle brand of salon professional products for guys into action sports and gaming contacted Grafix Shoppe about wrapping their 38 foot BUS. They were planning to kick off their circuit tour at the 2014 X-Games in Austin, Texas and continue throughout the US promoting their brand, meeting with key salons and raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project.

The Piranha X logo was to be the focal point of the design but they wanted it to be a bit edgy too. The Grafix Shoppe design team worked with team Piranha X creating the background image behind the main logo of a step and repeat pattern of the logo combined with images of action sports all over the vehicle with grunge effects. The images are grey on black which gives them a ghosted look. From a distance the wrap looks black and gray with just the big logo but up close your eyes get a feast of action sports and intricate details that make you want to stare for a while. All of the windows are covered with one-way vision window film and the sponsor logos are printed on a special vinyl which can be changed out as the sponsors change. 

Life is full of challenges and team Piranha X needed to hit the road in weeks so Grafix Shoppe stepped up to their game and transformed the BUS in one week sending it on the Circuit Tour in time. 

The Piranha X fragrance based line of men’s personal care products includes deodorant, hair products, and body wash for an active lifestyle.

If you are in need of a Vehicle Wrap of any size, you can count on Grafix Shoppe to get the job done right from concept and design to print and application.

Small Business Big Results

Posted on March 27, 2014

Being a small business can be tough in today’s economy especially if you are in the Printing Industry. Grafix Shoppe has been around for 25 years and has seen the highs and lows of the market. One thing has always remained the same for Grafix Shoppe, and that is our philosophy is to aggressively compete for business while delivering a quality product no matter how quick we need to turn a job around. To be able to deliver on this philosophy you need a phenomenal team backing it up.

In the world of event marketing there are plenty of times when you need printed promotional materials at the drop of the dime. It is hard enough doing the creative groundwork in a tight window, but often times the most stressful part of the process is finding a print vendor that you can trust to get the job done, on time, the correct way. Grafix Shoppe may be the vendor that you are looking for.

Here is an example.

STX, a global sports equipment manufacturer based out of Baltimore, MD approached Grafix Shoppe in an immediate need of a graphic removal and new graphics for their RV for the “Let’s Play Hockey Expo” in Saint Paul the weekend of March 7 and 8. Here is the timeline:

  • The design files were sent to Grafix Shoppe Friday evening the week before the event.
  • Our designer came in on that Sunday afternoon to set up the print files.
  • The graphics where printed Monday.
  • The RV arrived Monday night.
  • Our installers arrived at the Shoppe at 4 a.m. Tuesday, working around the clock removing the old graphics and applying the new graphics in a 48 hour window. Every nook and cranny on the RV was completely wrapped the right way, and the RV looked amazing check out the photos below.





STX was able to pick up the RV Thursday morning to make it to the River Center to set up for their booth at the expo. Grafix Shoppe was able to deliver on this job through the hard work and dedication of our team. If you are need of a big job done the right way with quick turnaround Grafix Shoppe is here for you to help ease your stress.
