We highly encourage that all of our customers shop around. Here at Vinyl ink, we understand that this is a big investment for most people and we value the trust that is built during each interaction. This is why we encourage you to shop based on quality of services and reputation before you shop based just on price-point. Occasionally we are more expensive but many times we are not. Our main concern is to be fair and to ensure you receive the best service possible. We pride ourselves on our commitment to quality and unfortunately, thats something which is hard to come by in this industry. We are a fully insured, brick and mortar business, we own our own state of the art equipment and are one of just a handful of…
We do occasionally perform on-site vinyl installations. It really just depends on the specific job and our current work load. Vinyl installation really needs a controlled work environment, not to mention that most installations can take several days. This is one reason that we prefer to do vinyl installations in our shop here in Fremont. If you have a standard vehicle wrap install, chances are that the additional costs for something like this will not add up. We rarely go off site to work but there are occasionally special instances where we need to accommodate an on-site vinyl installation. Please contact one of our staff members with the details of your request so that we can give you a quote.
Yes, we do vinyl graphics removal on vehicles and storefronts. We need to see your vinyl installation for quote as it depends on the quality which the vinyl is in as well as how it was originally installed. Vinyl removal is charged at a flat hourly rate. Please contact us with more information as well as any pictures if possible so that we can better help you. A few important key points to cover would be, how old, what type of vinyl was used and what condition is it now. You can upload images on our contact page as well.
No, we do not wrap car wheels. Sure, you probably saw a Youtube video of someone doing it or maybe heard it from a friend... but it is not recommended not only because it is much more expensive to properly do this installation than all of you think, but the durability of wrapped wheels just sucks. We can send out your wheels for powder coating though, and that stuff is tuff (expect on average between $500-$600 for a set of wheels powder coated).
Yes, we do wrap windows! In California (at the moment this is written at least), you can pretty much do anything to the windows behind the driver and passenger seats. We can use perforated vinyl or partial cut-vinyl decals to allow for visibility. We can also black out your back windows if you don't care to see out of them.
We sometimes are referred to as superheros or just "awesome people"... but occasionally even the best have their weaknesses. It is not recommended to wrap plastic parts especially textured plastics. There are a group of materials which are considered "low energy", and unfinished plastics are at the top of that list. We also hate wrapping helmets or other ridiculously curvy or complex surfaces which can really push the materials capabilities to their limits. Most people think because the part is small that somehow it justifies being cheap... but honestly some of the most expensive parts to wrap are the smallest and we probably wouldn't warranty the installation anyway. So leave your helmets, riding bicycles and motorcycles at home or buy some vinyl and try wrapping it yourself before you end…
The best thing to do is stop by our shop for a quote. This will allow you to look at all the different colors and finishes available and also let us take care of a deposit to hold your install date and also order any material we might not already have in stock.
We can remove and reinstall individual panels for you. For graphic wraps, we keep your original wrap design file so we can reprint and reinstall any part of your wrap for you.
We do offer chrome wraps for vehicles but please note that chrome wraps start at $6,000 and go up from there. Installation is at least 5 to 6 business days for chrome finishes and we are usually always booked outwards of 2 weeks. We only use quality Avery wrap chrome vinyl which is currently the only conformable wrap vinyl available on the market. If you saw another brand online, or saw some pictures from a wrap shop offering an install for less, chances are high that the product is junk.
This information is intended for graphic designers or people with some graphic program knowledge. If you are unsure of any of these requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be more than happy to speak with you or your graphic designer to help with this process. Files should be created in RGB format using any design program. Please note that our printer automatically converts graphics to CMYK for printing. Providing art in CMYK may produce unwanted color shifting which we are not responsible for. All files should be full scale at the appropriate resolution. While artwork for a business card for example, is designed at 300 dpi at full scale… large format designs such as vehicle wraps and banners will be 72 dpi at full scale; anything…
