What is a Color Change Wrap?

Vehicle wraps are one of the most effective ways to customize your vehicle because they allow a temporary change in color while still preserving the integrity and beauty of the factory paint underneath. This helps protect the resale value of the vehicle. When compared with a high quality custom paint job, vehicle wraps are generally less expensive. Additionally, vehicle wraps are much easier to maintain and repair because we can fix small portions in the case of an accident. Consult a vehicle wrap specialist today about the benefits of a wrap.

Whether you live in the Northern cities like Salt Lake City, Sandy, Provo, West Valley, or Ogden, or the southern cities like St. George or Hurricane, a vehicle wrap has what it takes to stand up to the heat and cold. A typical vehicle wrap in Salt Lake City will make it through 3-5 cold winters and 3-5 hot summers without flinching.

What are the brand of car wrap vinyl you carry?

We use the two highest quality brands: 3M and Avery. 3M vinyl is the popular name that gets tossed around a lot. However Avery is also considered a top of the line product. Many installers actually prefer the Avery vehicle wrap vinyl because it is more conformable and easier to work with. Both of these great brands offer superior products. However, just having the right brand is half the battle. Both of these companies create many types of vinyl and many types of adhesive. Someone could potentially tell you they are going to use a 3M vinyl on your vehicle. That does not necessarily mean that it is 3M vehicle wrap vinyl. It could easily be a permanent sticker vinyl or a repositionable vinyl- neither of which should ever be applied to vehicle paint. Queen of Wraps exclusively uses the top products from the 3M and Avery vehicle wrap line.
