Signs & Graphics
Pleasant Details is your go to company in Charleston for vehicle business wraps! We have put some basic information together to help in your decision to determine whether a vinyl vehicle wrap is right for your business.
The design work is one of the most important part of the vehicle wrap process. It can take several hours for the designer to vector low resolution logos, match fonts, mask images, and determine whether provided graphics will not be distorted when enlarged to cover an entire box truck. We provide you with a visual mock up of your vehicle with the wrap virtually applied for your approval. We design wraps everyday and know to avoid certain problem areas on vehicles such as door handles, gas tank, door seams, rounded fenders, etc.
Once the design is ready, we create an electronic or printed proof of the wrap. It’s important to carefully examine the proof for any mistakes you find and immediately note any changes you want made to the final wrap before printing. Any changes you have after the wrap goes into final production can delay turnaround times.
Pleasant Details prints the finished design on 3M 60+ inch-wide vinyl rolls using a Roland or HP large-format , utilizing both solvent-based and Latex inks. These printers produce vehicle wraps and other signage at a very high resolution.We apply a UV-coated laminate to the every printed wrap to protect it against the harsh elements and provide a glossy finish. This process also makes the wrap easier to remove when you no longer need it. Complete vehicle wraps are typically printed in multiple panels and carefully pieced together during installation. Our print procedures are recognized and backed with Manufacturer warranties from 3M, Avery, and Oracal.
Before we can begin installing your wrap, your vehicle needs to be thoroughly cleaned so that the wrap will adhere properly. Proper prep is required for adhesion and will assure that the wrap will not peel back overtime. Once cleaned, our trained and certified installers utilize industry techniques to stretch and reposition the vinyl, and a squeegee to eliminate imperfections while applying panels. Once installed the wrap will continue to cure and minor adhesive imperfections(if any) will settle. Now you can enjoy your new wrap for years to come!
