What is the Colour Change Wraps?

A colour change wrap is a vinyl film that is applied over your car’s existing paint. It is a cost-effective and reversible way to completely change the color of your vehicle without the commitment and expense of a traditional paint job.

Wrapping your car is a cost-effective alternative to a complete respray. The average cost of a colour change wrap ranges from $2,500 to $5,000, depending on the size of your vehicle and the type of wrap you choose.

What are the options?

The options for colour change wraps are endless. From matte, satin, textured to glossy finishes, you can choose from a wide range of colours and effects. You can even opt for a metallic or chrome finish to give your car a unique look. The best part? We can create a high-quality render of your vehicle before it gets wrapped to give you an idea of what the finished product will look like. Want a video too? Just ask!

How long does it last? The lifespan of a color change wrap depends on several factors including the quality of the vinyl, the climate and weather conditions, and the maintenance of the wrap. On average, color change wraps last between 3-7 years. With proper care and maintenance your wrap can last even longer.
