What Is A Car Wrap?

One of the services we offer at We Tint Windows, Brisbane, (besides window tinting) is car wraps. What is a car wrap? Well, to start with, it has nothing to do with your windows. It’s all about your paint job.

A car wrap is a carbon or vinyl film that is applied to the exterior of your car over the paintwork.



car wrap has a number of benefits and, depending on what you want it for, some great functions.


A Protective Layer

First and foremost it is a protective layer of film. In much the same way that we all rush out and buy a screen protector for a new smartphone, a car wrap will do the same for your brand new car and its factory paint job. And, let’s face it, if you’re willing to buy a protective layer for something worth a few thousand dollars, it’s definitely a good idea to do it for a new car.

Many of us resell a smartphone at the end of our contract, once we have the new model. And a protective layer can help protect the integrity of the screen as well as the resale value. The same is true of car wraps: once it’s time to return your car to a dealership or resell it, the car wrap can be removed, revealing the pristine paintwork underneath.


Change The Look Of Your Car

Car wraps allow you to change the appearance of your car, in a subtle or dramatic way. The potential for change and the specific design is only limited by your imagination.

And if you get sick of the look of your car, you can simply remove the car wrap and revert back to the original paint job, or have a new wrap applied.


Hide Flaws In A Paint Job

A car wrap is perfect for hiding flaws in a paint job that might be looking faded, cracked, or old. And what’s even better, it’s much faster and cheaper than repainting your whole car.



Carbon wraps are a great way to change the appearance of your car. This can be especially handy for company cars or corporate vehicles that want maximum impact and branding visibility when they’re out driving around.

Carbon car wraps are cost-effective and quick to apply. They will help protect your paint job and are easy to remove if you decide you don’t want it anymore.

A vinyl car wrap is similar to a carbon car wrap, but involves a different material. A vinyl wrap is great for changing the look of your car. We can do all of your car or just a small section, adding logos, patterns or symbols to enhance the look. They’re perfect for personalising your car and getting a reaction as you drive around town.

Vinyl wraps are much cheaper than repainting, will protect your existing paintwork and are easy to remove later on.
