Nice. Most wraps you see are awful, but that is very good.

HI
I am pleased that like. :oops:
I was five years trying to decorate or not I liked drawing, or I did not have the time to do so.
(-) Then one night I dreamed of and the day after the printed and applied.
And now I hope it brings labour, here we are a small country, and little money.
The work was simple: I went from carpenter. :lol1:
I used Imageperfect material distributed by spandex.
Cast 2507
Printed with mutho ecosolvent
Rolling liquid applied airbrush after applying the press.
And seven sweat shirts.
19 M2 print
1.5 M2 wrong
1.5 M2 scrap

excellent Gian

I have yet to do a wrap...not looking forward to it, sounds a bit like black magic

We don't have vehicle wrap packages, can anyone recommend one, especially for Australian market cars.

many thanks

Henrik,

What you you mean by vehicle wrap packages?

Vehicle templates can be used for giving the client an indication. But a 2D drawing will never come out exactly the same on the vehicle. Curves etc will distort the vinyl. That's why its good to leave text etc away from these areas and using a pattern of color in these areas. Quarter panels, front and rear bumpers etc.

Whenever your going to do a wrap take your digital camera and take photos of each thing on the vehicle that might be a problem area. Keep any important information off these areas.

thanks Jason,

I did mean vehicle templates, I though there was templates that was taking into account the curves on the vehicle, so when you cut out your vinyl it has that bit of extra room... i am not sure if I am expressing myself clearly.

hmm...maybe I need to do some more research :-) any help and info would be appreciated

The only vehicle outlines I have ever seen are 2 dimensional. I reckon you need to have some photos of the vehicle as well so you can consider the curvy bits when designing. Vans are pretty easy as they tend to have large flat areas but I reckon a car would need a bit more consideration.

Henrik,

No vehicle templates take into consideration curves of the bodies etc. Always make sure you print more vinyl then you need more bleed etc.

Keep your text or important details on flat areas to reduce distortion.

Once your getting into it shoot me an email or gimme a call and I'll voice my concern over a design on a certain model vehicle and fitting the vinyl.

Jason
