Vehicle Wrap: Additional Terms, Conditions and Warranty Disclaimer: INSTALLATIONS: Designer Wraps only guarantees final prints that are designed and set up by Designer Wraps. Designer Wraps reserves the right to VOID the warranty on any same day print and install jobs or any Rush Jobs. Designer Wraps disclaims all warranties on buses, planes, trains, RVs, custom vehicles and vehicles with OEM paint that is more 6 years old. If we are asked to cover existing vinyl decals, we cannot be liable for any damage caused during the installation or removal process to these decals.
A Wrap is NOT paint. There may be extreme curves, deep channels and moldings on the vehicle that the vinyl will not be able to conform to. In some small areas you will see evidence of the original color of the vehicle. These may be small areas such as around door handles and the edges of the lights on the vehicles. A vehicle wrap is made by applying 52 inch vertical panels of vinyl. There will be 1 inch seams where the panels meet. On a complex design with many matching points, Designer Wraps cannot guarantee that the graphics will match 100% alignment due to extreme complex curves on the vehicle. A 5% margin is considered acceptable on large outdoor advertising projects.
Proofs are created on a flat surface and viewed at a relatively tiny size on computer screens and printed paper. In cases of curves, handles, deep grooves, rubber moldings/trim, on-the-spot adjustments may be made by the installer to assure maximum readability or alignment. In many cases there are slight differences between the printed flat paper proof and the 3 dimensional curved vehicle wrap. This can vary up to several inches. This is normal and the wrap needs to be designed with this in mind
It is not reasonable to expect printed vinyl wrap to cover and look exactly like paint or in all the same places look exactly the same. A piece of vinyl has limits and can only stretch so much before it changes color. In some cases, a relief cut may have to be made into the vinyl that will reveal a small amount of the original vehicles paint color under the vinyl. In some cases a patch needs to be installed to conceal vehicles original color. It is the only option. Areas under door handles, mirrors, behind gas caps, and inside door frames will not be wrapped. If we wrap Extreme curved surfaces such as mirrors and bumpers they may reveal the original paint color at the tight edges of the wrap. It has more to do with material limitations and not install quality. Designer Wraps cannot warranty those areas with extreme curves. It is the sole risk of the client if they choose wrap mirrors or other very tight curves. Designer Wraps will make the client aware of these areas before we begin the design.
If we are installing at the client’s nominated location, suitable conditions must exist. Vehicles need to be indoors, in a clean, dust free temperature controlled environment, with a power supply and good quality lighting with a minimum of 5 feet working space around the entire vehicle. If in the opinion of the senior installer on site, conditions are not suitable for a high quality install of the wrap, the vehicle will be required to go to one of our nominated install locations. Wraps are self-adhesive vinyl that will only adhere well to catalyzed vehicle paint and glass. Poor surface paint or clear coats will not allow the vinyl adhesive to stick properly and the adhesive may fail. It is the responsibility of the vehicle owner to bring in a vehicle that is ready to be wrapped. Extreme curves and deep pockets may exceed the limits of how far the material can stretch. Again this is not paint it is a special pressure sensitive vinyl material. Vehicles are not at exact right angle curves. They maintain lines that are not 100% parallel to the ground. Due to this fact the graphics that are 2D printed graphics twill not be at the exact same angle of the vehicle lines once the wrap is installed onto the 3D vehicle surface.
Due to the limitations and the sensitivity of the various substrates, it is impossible to reproduce all colors accurately. Therefore, in the absence of a representative from your company to select the appropriate color sample, reproduction will be at our discretion. When we wrap over existing vinyl strips or letters, the new wrap is so thin on top that there will be evidence that there is old vinyl underneath the new vinyl. Designer Wraps will not be held responsible for any damage, void of vehicle warranty or anything caused through the application of the vinyl products. Designer Wraps is not liable if during the installation of a wrap the clear coat of the car begins to peel off. Original painted vehicles should not have any problems with the clear coat peeling off.
The application process in many cases takes no longer than a day or two for full wraps and partial wraps can be done within one day. It is not a good idea to rush the install process as many things can go wrong. Designer Wraps reserves the right to take an additional day for any issues that may arise during the install.
Designer Wraps prefers to use our facility for installation. If client elects to have installation performed at their location, Designer Wraps will not be held liable for any issues related to improper install conditions such as temperature or dust.
The vinyl that is applied to original vehicle paint is warranted against adhesive failure and image quality for up to 4 years. The window perforated material is warranted for up to 1 years. Designer Wraps does not warranty any material that we do not install.
REMOVALS: All removals are quoted separately. Wrap removal can be very time consuming. We charge by the hour for the labor. Designer Wraps will not be responsible for any paint, clear coat, or existing striping damage when we do a removal.
We cannot be responsible for damage to paintwork when the vinyl is removed, and would not advise application on a re-sprayed surface, or poor quality/rusted paintwork. Please note, our experience shows that removal of vinyl designed for vehicle wraps, from good quality, factory original paintwork, will not damage the paintwork. However, it is the duty and responsibility of the owner of the vehicles to ensure suitability of the existing surface before it is wrapped. .
WARRANTY & MATERIALS: Designer Wraps offers a one-year warranty on the installation and one-year on the material applied to the windows. No warranty on horizontal direct sun exposure such as hoods, roofs, and/or deck lids. Any surface with less than a 10 degree slope will not be warrantied. The wrap warranty will depend upon the customer’s care of the vehicle and the outdoor/geographic conditions. We recommend hand washing only. Avoid high pressure, power washing and be careful never to use an ice scraper on window graphics. Also avoid harsh chemicals of any kind as they can deteriorate the laminate on the vinyl adhesive. Sweeping or brushing off the windows with a soft broom and the use of a rear defroster will not damage your window wrap. There are specially designed products to clean and polish vinyl graphics if needed. Please wait at least 3 weeks before washing your vehicle once applied.
