FAQ

What is a FanWrap made of?

FanWraps are manufactured in a three phase production process using the highest quality products to ensure longevity of the wrap while showcasing brand recognition and standards. FanWraps consist of a specially designed wrapping substrate with the highest quality UV resistant inks.

 

Where should I put it on my car?

FanWraps come in different sizes, and are designed for different parts of your vehicle. You can use our guidelines or choose your own placement. You may install a FanWrap anywhere except in areas that will obstruct the windshield, rear window, or driver and passenger side windows. Installations must follow your state laws, ex. no covering license plates, headlights, brake lights, etc…. A good rule of thumb is: if it is painted you can wrap it.

 

How do I install it?

Please refer to the installation guide (downloadable PDF format). You may also refer to our installation video. If you have a question not addressed in this FAQ feel free to contact our customer support department.

 

What is included in the installation kit?

Installation Kit – this includes a squeegee, knife-less tape and instruction sheet for easy installation of the FanWrap. Included in each FanWrap is a smaller version of your final art work. We recommend that you try to install this material on your vehicle first to familiarize yourself with the product.

 

Will it damage my paint?

Our FanWraps are specifically designed for vehicles. With our toolkit and proper installation techniques you will not damage your car installing a FanWrap. The paint under the FanWrap will be protected from UV and abrasion damage.

 

How long does it last?

The average lifespan of a FanWrap is 5+ years depending on the care of the vehicle. Vehicle parked outside in direct sunlight in desert like conditions will experience graphic fade faster than vehicles in wooded cooler climates.

 

Will it start to fade?

The inks we use have automotive grade pigments which are UV resistant along with a UV resistant laminate which further protects the FanWrap. While UV resistant, FanWraps will fade over time.

 

How do I take it off?

The easiest and best technique for removal is to heat the FanWrap with a hairdryer and slowly peel it off the vehicle. Extra care should be taken if your vehicle has non-factory paint from a re-spray or body work. In rare cases a cold removal with fast pull on a long term FanWrap installation could damage the vehicles paint.

 

I've had my FanWrap on for about five years and I decided to remove it. I can see where the FanWrap was installed on my vehicle.

The FanWrap will protect your paints finish where applied. The rest of your vehicle has been exposed to the elements. You will see an area where the paint has not faded. This will even out in about six months and fade away entirely.

 

How can I cut it without scratching my car?

See our installation video for more information about our knifeless tape.

 

Once it is on can I move it?

During the installation process you can apply and re-apply sections of the wrap to ensure perfect placement, however once installed, the wrap cannot be reinstalled in a new location.

 

What do I do about air bubbles?

Small bubbles approximately an eighth of an inch will dissipate over time. FanWraps are gas permeable. If you generate large bubbles during the installation process, lift that area of the FanWrap and reapply. Please see our installation video for more information on this topic.
