4 Things we Love about Color Change Vinyl
Having recently added the new product Avery Supreme Wrapping Film to our lineup, I talked to installers Rich Wilke and Chris Komski about how they are liking the vehicle wrapping film. They agreed the Supreme Wrapping Film, or color change vinyl, is very easy to work with for these four reasons:
The film is thinner than our 3M Control Tac Vinyl, so we can use less heat when installing the Avery Wrapping Film. "Using less heat prevents over-stretching of the film, which compromises the adhesive. The adhesive doesn't get as good contact with the vehicle, and it can also create visual defects in the vinyl," Chris explained.
It comes pre-laminated.
"It’s already laminated so that saves us time," Chris noted. As with any business, time is money.
Air-release channels make install easy.
On the back of the vinyl, you can see tiny little hexagons whose outlines form air-release channels throughout the material. During installation, smoothing the vinyl out over contours is simple because "you can push any air bubbles out through the network of channels," Rich said.
It's less aggressive.
The Avery Supreme Wrapping Film is less aggressive than the 3M Control Tac that we use for printed vehicle wraps. When installing the vinyl for John's truck wrap, “we exposed the whole back and were able to move it around to adjust the placement. With Control Tac, we wouldn’t have been able to do that,” Chris explained.
Avery's wrapping film is a high-quality and install-friendly vinyl to work with, and we are excited to continue using it. The next project in line for color change vinyl is Signs for Success Designer Will Oakley's Volkswagon Cabriolet.
Signs for Success - Custom Wraps and Graphics is located in Spokane, WA and services Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake, Airway Heights, Cheney and Deer Park, pointing coast to coast wherever successful signs are needed.
