Colored Chrome Car Wraps
We’ve all seen over the last year the rising trend of chrome and even colored chrome car wraps. These wraps are truly something unique that demands attention from everyone. In the past the only way to produce a colored chrome vinyl (that wasn’t a makeshift overseas product) was to purchase a roll of Avery Conform chrome or Hexis chrome and then laminate it with a transparent colored film such as Hexis C4000. This process is costly and time consuming also resulting in warranty of the products being voided from the process. With this being said, Avery and Hexis are coming to the rescue to produce out of the box colored chrome car wrap films!
Avery Conform Chrome Colors
Over the last few weeks Avery Dennison is already beginning to release their product line unveiling blue and gold chrome. Blue has been a very anticipated color and the gold film will be for the select consumer who believes has the ability to pull off such a look. The series isn’t done here, red and yellow chrome will also be coming out shortly. As of right now the films may be hard to find from your local distributor and may require you to do some searching for this elusive product. How much does this cost? Whilst eliminating the lamination process, this product weighs in at around $2,300-$2,600 depending on your distributor. This is material cost alone and let’s not forget that the installation process is still very tedious and the overall cost for a chrome wrap can still be 3x the cost of a standard matte or gloss wrap.
Hexis Chrome Colors
Upon speaking with my local Hexis distrutor I was noticed that a colored chrome series is due to be released in September 2013. The series is due to include blue, red, yellow, black, gold, and purple. They will also be re-releasing a better product line of the former C4000 series which will also be a cast vinyl as opposed to it’s current calendered state. This will also provide more options in creating chrome colors using the old method of creating colored chrome. A price for the Hexis colored chrome is still unknown but I would assume a price around $3,000 would not be far off.

Why Matte Car Wraps
It is apparent that matte car wraps are what is to be desired currently in the car wrap world. You may be asking yourself why? The answer is simple, wrapping a car in a matte color is more cost efficient and also will not decrease your resale value. For a quality matte paint job a customer can easily be looking at $5,000+ as opposed to a price tag of only $1,600-$3,000. With this cheaper price tag also comes the benefits of 100% full paint protection and a unique look that paint cannot simply cannot compete with. With the growth of this popular trend the color selections are also growing making this trend something that will not go away and will only become more popular and unique. Matte metallic colors are also on the rise giving consumers an escape from not completely flat colors and having a product which can still shine in the most unique way.

How Durable Is A Boat Wrap?
Contrary to possible beliefs, a boat wrap is extremely durable and will last years on the water. The vinyl is installed just above the water line of the boat which ensures that water will not harm the vinyl whilst traveling or floating in the water. For added protection with every installation we use edge sealer tape along the vinyl to securely seal the vinyl allowing no water to be able to penetrate the vinyl or adhesive. These proper installation methods allow us to create a visually stunning product to be enjoyed by everyone for years to come.

Nathan Norman is a 6 year old who was diagnosed with cancer at his young age and for Christmas his wish was to receive cards and wishes from the police, EMS, and firefighter departments. His wish was granted and quoted, “Their house is filled with boxes of gifts and cards.” – via WishUponAHero Not only did he receive many condolences from the public, firefighters, and police officers, he also received a visit from over 250 police officers driving 12 hours away to also show their support.
Brandywine Volunteer Firefighters
This story not only touched the hearts of the police force, it also caught the attention of the local Brandywine volunteer fire department. Firefighter, Richard Francisco made the initiation to build a monster truck to support this great cause. Richard’s idea, “We are building a fire dept monster truck and want to put it out for display. As well as to thank the people who helped with the wrap. It will sport the Brandywine fire dept theme as well as wish upon a Hero and st Jude’s center when complete.” Along with the completion of this truck, he has also made great steps to get coverage and attention to the cause, truck, and participants involved in this project.
We met Richard at a local event and were later contacted with this story and project. Also taken by this story, we anxiously became involved in any way possible. Richard voiced his idea of the design of the truck and with the help of N8VCOMP/Arba Graphics/Southern Maryland Wraps and professional designer Russell Bartnick the truck shortly became a reality. The truck uses the tasmanian devil logo and other designs to commemorate the Brandywine volunteer firefighters, Saint Jude’s center, and the Wish Upon A Hero foundation for their support in this cause.
Since the completion of the truck it has been mentioned in numerous magazines and media including Maryland Independent. We are honored to be able to be involved in this project and our prayers go out to the Norman family. We thank Richard Francisco and the Brandywine volunteer fire department for the opportunity to be involved.
