Specialty wraps is a catch all category as we can wrap almost anything. We have wrapped shipping lockers, barrels, coolers, guitars, display bins, point-of-sale kiosks, countertops, table tops and many more. Normally, depending on the application, we can use a good utility grade vinyl. In applications that have complex curves, we would use a car wrap grade material. This material is much thinner than the utility grade and can handle the curves. If the item to be wrapped is in a high traffic area or is going to be touched often, we would use an optically clear laminate. The laminate gives us just enough protection so that the print and the vinyl stay looking great for a long time.
Utility grade vinyl is almost twice as thick and is great for box trucks, locker systems, almost anything with straight sides. The only warning with utility grade material is that the adhesive is permanent. This doesn’t mean that it will never come off, just that it will be very difficult to remove. This type of vinyl should never be used on a car or any surface that has been clear coated as it will remove the clear coat when it is removed. If you plan on changing the design over the next few years, we highly recommend that you choose wrap material.
One of the hardest items to wrap is almost anything made out of low energy plastic. Items like coolers or snowmobiles. The material, no matter how aggressive, just doesn’t stay adhered to the plastic. That’s why we have a low energy vinyl specifically designed to adhere to these types of plastic. It allows us to print any design and be assured that it will stay attached. The laminate for the vinyl is almost twice as thick as normal laminates but that is due to the type of adhesive that has to be used. Either way, if you have something that you would like to wrap, we have you covered.

About Specialty Wraps
Specialty wraps is a catch all category as we can wrap almost anything. We have wrapped shipping lockers, barrels, coolers, guitars, display bins, point-of-sale kiosks, countertops, table tops and many more. Normally, depending on the application, we can use a good utility grade vinyl. Most of these applications do not require the use of a laminate as they are not being touched. If we have a high contact substrate, we would laminate the print to give it some wear ability.
Specialty Wraps FAQ
What can be wrapped?
Almost anything can be wrapped. The biggest factor is the surface that is being worked on. Certain paints make it more difficult to adhere a print to like powder coated surfaces. Walls can be wrapped but care must be taken because some paints have Teflon or other elements in them to release stains. Also a factor is the number of contours. The higher the number of contours, the less likely the vinyl is to stick.
What type of material is used when wrapping?
Most of the time we use a utility grade vinyl. 3M makes a number of vinyl’s that work well for this. Again, the surface that we are adhering to will determine the exact grade of material we can use.
Are there any design limitations on wrapping something?
The only limitations are the limits on your imagination. We can design almost anything that you want. Our designs are the best in the business.
