Many Options For Vinyl Wrapped Advertising

The most ideal surface to apply vinyl to is a smooth, non-porous surface.

Glass provides a perfect canvas for which to apply vinyl, and windows that vinyl graphics are applied to make a great area to advertise your brand while also providing additional privacy for staff who might be working inside.

Metal painted with automotive paint is another ideal surface to use, and Fleet wraps encompass a good portion of our business at Signature. The surfaces of metals, glass, and treated, painted plastics used in auto manufacturing make a great surface for all kinds of interesting graphic applications. Keep in mind that any dents, scratches, and imperfections will not be covered, but will just look like a dent that has had a graphic applied to the surface of it.

Porous materials present the biggest challenge for the application of vinyl, but some porous surfaces are better than others. Sidewalks, as well as floors, while potentially textured and porous, may provide a great place for wayfinding graphics, or for additional promotional space to enhance branding.

Some types of treated wood and brick can be wrapped, even if they are textured. Brick is generally not the best choice, due to its reactions to moisture and temperature. Please consult our design experts when choosing a surface to apply an acrylic overlay on.

Rusted metal, peeling paint, or very rough, textured surfaces are all a bad choice, as are highly contorted objects with deep grooves or angles. Anything that will be exposed to very extreme changes in temperature is also not a candidate for vinyl graphics.

Lastly, it is not advisable to try to overlay vinyl onto unsealed wood, bare plywood, rubber or similar unstable surfaces, and some kinds of painted plywood. The adhesive that is used to apply the vinyl does not provide a lasting bond, and therefore the life of the overlay is shortened significantly.

The vinyl is only as good as the substrate it is applied to. This is especially true when the vinyl will be exposed to outdoor elements. Any surface that the adhesive will not readily stick to will be a poor choice for vinyl overlays. Unpainted wood or unpainted plastics do not provide an ideal surface – and wood can expand and contract with changes in temperature and moisture;  these should only be used for short-term projects, if at all.
