Once printed we coat the material with a UV protective hard, high gloss laminate, which both, protects it from the rays of the sun, heat and gives the print a nice glossy finish. We are a 3M® MCS® Warranty printing facility.
Upon approval of final design layout, Ads On Wheels, Inc. ® will create and size the digital print

Production of vehicle wrap graphics takes place once the print files have been created and completed. Ads On Wheels, Inc. ® will then begin the printing, packaging, and shipping the graphics to the vehicle or installation location. This process takes approximately 5-7 working days.
Please note: Once the final design layout has approved and print files have been created, any revisions or changes to the layout options would incur additional art and print charges.

VEHICLE PREPARATION PRIOR TO INSTALLATION:
It is vital to the success of the vehicle wrap that the following preparation procedures of the vehicle(s) take place.
A. Thoroughly clean the vehicle(s) ensuring there is NO oxidation, dirt, rust, or any other particles that would interfere with the adherence of the graphic material.
B. Ensure that the vehicle(s) are COMPLETELY dry prior to the scheduled application. Pay special attention to all rubber moldings, hinges, and any other places where water can settle.
C. Make sure the vehicle(s) are available at the arranged time and remain available until the completion of the wrap.
NOTE!: Please be sure that your vehicle is clean, dry, and free of any wax at the time of your graphics installation. Having a dirty or waxed vehicle will prohibit the adhesive material of the wrap from adhering properly to the surface of your vehicle and drastically shorten the life of your wrap, extend the installation time, as well as result in additional cleaning charges.
Once you or the installer have confirmed that the graphics have been received, Ads On Wheels, Inc. ® will call to schedule an appointment to have a certified, professionally trained applicator apply your vehicle wrap. The application will take place at the designated installation location. If you do not have a suitable installation facility we will locate our nearest installation location and supply this for you.
In order to install your graphics on-site, the installer will need an enclosed garage or warehouse to work in. If you are having installation at a facility that you will be providing, please note that a minimum 4 feet clearance around the vehicle will be required. The facility will also be required to be well lit and be in the temperature range for a proper installation. 60 degrees – 80 degrees F. The facility will also need to be clean and free of dust, grease, and dirt. (Open ports or outdoor facilities may be acceptable, dependent on weather and wind conditions. As a general rule outdoor applications are not acceptable for installations that carry a warranty. Clearly identify your conditions at time of installation scheduling).
INSTALLATION TIME DURATION:
The vehicle wrap application process typically takes a full day (per vehicle; averaged sized SUV or car) to complete. The amount of time to physically install the graphics may differ depending on size and complexity of vehicle.
