This is going to stick with you for years so make sure you get high quality printing and professional installers.
Some printers will produce low resolution images because it allows them to print your job faster but you end up with grainy pixilated wraps. Big Fish DPI is just as excited to show off your new design as you are so it takes a little longer but the results can be the difference between antenna reception and high def TV.
Large format printing from vehicle wraps to banners are sold by the square foot. So when designing keep in mind how much room is actually needed to place your logo and image for height and width. Vector files are best because they can be enlarged without risking the image quality, unlike pdfs and photoshop files. Additionally, vector files are small in size so they can be easy to upload.

Schedule a time to have a certified 3M installer do a survey. They take all measurements to be used for a template so you can get the wrap designed. At this time, the installer can use this info give you an estimate on installation. The installer will also discuss with you if they will wash it down with special solvents. Lastly they will determine where they will do the installation whether it is at your garage/warehouse or their facility as it is important for the vehicle to be stored at the same temperature as the vinyl will be prior to application.
We suggest you only use a certified 3M installer. We will be glad to help you locate a certified installer in your area. They have the highest standards and qualifications of any installer in the U.S. ensuring you get a professional fit each and every time.
