Why You Should Wrap

Why You Should Wrap

If you’re reading this, chances are that you’re considering a colour change for your vehicle. Before you commit to an expensive and time-consuming respray, it’s important that you become aware of the benefits of vinyl wrapping. Vinyl wraps have been around for a few years, but many motorists are still unaware of the major advantages that wraps have over repainting.

Take a look at these tips to help you decide if vinyl wrapping is a viable option for your vehicle, and check out our service right here.

Paint Protection

We’ve all seen the effects that harsh weather, flying road debris, bird droppings, tree sap, and accidental damage has on paint jobs. Damage to paint is annoying to deal with and can be expensive. Vinyl wraps shield your car in a layer of protection to help protect it from the elements.

Here at CJ’s, many of the cars we wrap are brand new vehicles. The owners are interested in the twin benefits of protecting their investment and standing out from the crowd.


Paint is permanent. Meaning that if you get a bad paint job or are bored of the colour and want something new, you need to get your vehicle stripped and repainted. Vinyl wraps enable you to change the colour of your vehicle easily and you can try out crazy colours and patterns like cobalt or matte black without damaging the resale value of your vehicle.

One-of-a-Kind Style

When purchasing a new car from a dealership, you are faced with a limited selection of colours… most of which are pretty drab. On the used market, your choices are even more limited. With vinyl wraps, your imagination is the only limitation. There is no better way to create a unique style than with modern vinyl wraps.

Wraps give you the flexibility to try out new colours while keeping your original paint in perfect condition. That sounds like a win-win to us.

Resale Value

Changing the colour of your vehicle with a repaint is one of the easiest, but surprising, ways to ruin the resale value of your vehicle. Even top-notch shops will leave evidence that a car has been resprayed, and it just won’t ever look quite right.

To get the best resale value possible, it’s best to leave your factory paint in flawless condition. Wraps give you the flexibility to try out new colours while keeping your original paint in perfect condition. That sounds like a win-win to us.

Turnaround Time

We all know that getting a vehicle repainted is far more expensive than a wrap, but many of us don’t factor in the turnaround time into our calculations. It can take several weeks for a repainting to be completed. Not only do you need to pay the premium cost of a repaint, but you also need to factor in a rental car or alternative transportation for that delay.

Vinyl wraps are quick. We can get your vehicle back to you in as little as a couple days so you can get back to what you love most: driving.


If you’re used to a typical paint job, you’re probably tired of the ritual washing, waxing, clay barring, and buffing required to keep it looking nice. The only maintenance required by a vinyl wrap is a little soap and water. No more “wax on, wax off” nonsense.

A wrap will look good as new after a simple wash. In addition to that, it will continue to protect your paint from solar and chemical damage so you can focus on enjoying your ride stress-free.


Matching the factory paint of a vehicle with a quality paint job can cost up to $10,000. And that’s before factoring in any options like metallic finishes. On the other hand, vinyl wraps are far more affordable, generally costing around $1500.

When you factor in the benefits that wraps have over a traditional paint job with the low cost, it’s a wonder why more people don’t choose vinyl.
