Basis of every wrap design is composition, color selection, proportions, and proper display of logos. But how to make a car stand out? Various types of vinyls come with help, making the final effect unique and recognizable. Let’s check what we have to choose from …
Vinyl finish defines how it reflects the light. Combination of various types of finishes used in one design gives real results when car is on the move.
Gloss – basic finish, the surface reflects reflections like a typical car paint
Matte – all reflections are blurred, the colors in this finish appear brighter
Satin – it is a finish that can be placed between glossy and matte. The reflections are “milky”, yet the colors still retain their depth
3D texture – the surface of such a vinyl is covered with a texture. Thanks to this, you can get realistic effects such as brushed aluminum or carbon fibre.
Metallic – an effect well known from car paints. Metallic particles sparkle reflecting light
Diamond – the effect is close to metallic, but the particles are much thicker. They can also be in a color different than the base (e.g. black foil with gold glitter particles)
Chrome – mirror foil, perfectly reflects the surroundings. It can be dyed in various colors, very effective on large surfaces
Color-flip – foils, the color of which depends on the angle at which we look at it. As a result, when looking at the curved surfaces of the car, the foil shimmers in many colors
Fluorescent – bright foils that reflect light very aggressively. Great for distinguishing a car
It is worth adding that this wide range of foil types usually concerns projects cut from plotter foils. However, also in the case of printing, the vinyl can be finished with glossy, matte or satin laminate. Combinations such as printing on chrome vinyls are also possible. Unfortunately, the use of many unusual materials is also often comes with increased costs of the wrap.
