While it is possible, we strongly recommend you use a certified, professional installer in order to ensure the quality, appearance and durability of your wrap matches your expectations. Installing the wrap yourself can go wrong very easily and will mean it’s not covered by our comprehensive warranty.

Removal within the wraps warranty period is highly unlikely to cause any damage. 3M car wrapping films are tested for compatibility with many of the commonly used paint systems in the automotive industry. Decades of experience show that our adhesives typically don’t chemically react with the paint.
However, improper paint repair can have low tack to the car body, meaning that some may be pulled off along with the film on removal.
3M car wraps are made from printable graphic films that are specially designed to be printed by inkjet digital printers. The printed films should be protected by an overlaminate that can be in gloss or matte depending on your preference.
In most cases you will not notice any difference. Because of the wide array of monitors and monitor settings, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the colours you see on your screen.
Generally, a full car wrap installation takes about a day. However, we recommend leaving your car in the shop for another day to help ensure proper adhesion of the film to the car has been achieved. If you’re looking for a partial wrap then the time needed will be much shorter. Upon submitting your request, the installer will be able to inform you of the amount of time that your wrap will require.
