How Long Does a Vinyl Vehicle Wrap Last?
Vehicle wraps are an incredible way to advertise, protect your vehicle, and make a statement, but they can also be a fairly considerable investment.

At Wrap Guys America, we have been wrapping vehicles for years and we back our vehicle wraps with our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
How Long Do Vehicle Wraps Last?
The amount of time that a vehicle wrap can last is dependent on multiple factors. Some of these influencing factors include:
The Materials Used
The quality of the materials used to wrap a car can be a major influencer in how long a car wrap lasts. Higher quality vinyl, such as 3M vinyl and Avery cast vinyl, will last longer than low-quality vinyl. High-quality vinyl is UV resistant, more scratch resistant, and less fragile than low-quality vinyl.
Design and Installation
The design of the car wrap itself will be a major influencing factor on how long the wrap will last. The printing process can make a big difference in the last of a wrap, as different inks do not last as long as others. The installation will also affect how long your car wrap lasts. A low-quality or unprofessional installation will often result in bubbles, creases, and dirt under the wrap, which can all lower its life expectancy. Poorly cut seams can also negatively affect the wrap’s lifespan.
If the wrap is maintained and washed properly throughout its life, it will last significantly longer than a wrap that is neglected. Using the proper soap to wash it, rinsing off salt, and driving it on the proper roads can all help to improve a vinyl wrap’s life expectancy.
The location of a vehicle will also affect the lifespan of a vehicle wrap. Too much direct sunlight can make the wrap fade over time. In colder climates where road salting is necessary, the salt can corrode the wrap material if not properly taken care of.
