Why You Shouldn’t Wrap Your Own Vehicle

Vehicle Wrapping is one of the best things you can do for your car, boat, or other vehicle. It provides you not only with a fresh new look, but it also offers you an amazing marketing tool that can help boost your business tremendously. But if and when you do decide to get your vehicle wrapped, don’t do it yourself. While you can save yourself money by wrapping your own vehicle, it’s very likely that you’ll face many problems. Hence why you should always have a professional work on it for you, such as GNS Wraps. And if you don’t believe us, then continue reading below to see some of the issues you can encounter when you wrap your own car.

Why You Shouldn’t Wrap Your Own Vehicle

Edges Are Peeled

When you try to wrap your own vehicle, an issue that can come about is peeling edges, and it’s probably one of the most common problems found in bad wrap jobs. You need to properly clean the surface of the vehicle of all oils, film, dust, or debris before you apply a wrap. And if you don’t, the adhesive will not be able to stick entirely. Peeling edges are also caused by wrinkles that have not been completely smoothed out and also by an improper heating application.

Poor Trimming

When a wrap is applied to your vehicle’s surface, you’ll need to trim off any excess adhesive. This part of the wrapping process requires a steady hand and if any errors occur, it will lead to you having to completely start over. Any errors caused by an unsteady hand will also lead to potential damage to the vehicle’s surface.


Many issues can cause bubbling to occur with your wrap. Most amateurs, when wrapping their vehicles, might apply inadequate preparation, incorrect heating, or might accidentally overstretch the adhesive. And even installing in an unbearably hot climate, such as the climate in Florida, can also contribute to bubbling.

Cutting Corners

This is probably the #1 reason why most amateur vehicle wraps come out as failures. When wrapping a vehicle, it’s most ideal that you remove bumpers, headlights, and door handles when you’re doing a wrap. Many vehicle wrap failures happen because applicants were trying to cut corners and not remove vehicle components when it was needed. GNS Wraps trained professionals will know which parts to remove when performing their own wrapping service. So when you bring your vehicle over to us to get wrapped, you can be at ease knowing that your vehicle will be under special care.
