Vinyl wrapping a van: the revolution has begun

A vinyl wrap on a van is something that most sign shops can do, but here at Perth Graphics Centre we like to differentiate ourselves from the pack. While most companies are using a cast vinyl with cast overlaminate, Perth Graphics Centre’s research of the latest vinyl wrapping methods has led to a new method of creating vehicle wraps.

Signage Vinyl Wraps Perth

Signage needs to last and it needs to look great for years, which is why our vehicle wraps no longer use vinyl as the final layer. Through experimentation and investigation, signage vinyl wraps by Perth Graphics Centre are being produced with a gloss polyurethane finish. This gives several advantages over regular PVC overlaminates:

  • No plasticiser migration, which means a longer outdoor life
  • Far lower heating temperatures, which means no failures from a lack of post heating
  • Higher gloss level, mimicking paint in finish
  • Higher flexibility
  • Better UV protection
  • Greater colour gamut

Thus, as you can see, the polyurethane laminate is a far better option and one that we have adopted across the board. With our new ink-set, you can be assured of better results from start to finish.


This is why worldwide brands come to Perth Graphics Centre. If you have a signage project, a fleet needing wrapping or just simple vehicle graphics, Perth Graphics Centre can do it all.

Trailer signage: Perth car dealership wraps its trailer

After a phone call from the eastern states, Perth Graphics Centre was contracted to print and install new graphics onto this barbeque trailer for Subaru WA. It was urgent because they wanted to use it for the upcoming Rally WA round.

How much of a vehicle do signage wraps cover?

That all depends on how much you want to cover. Just about every part of the vehicle has the potential to be wrapped, however a much more cost effective way is to do a half wrap. Our wraps don’t need to cover the entire car – just use the largest, flattest area you have.

This minimises the potential for damage, and it’s also a lot faster to produce and fit.

What vinyl do you use for wraps?

Our preferred supplier is Avery, however we also use 3M vinyls where specified. Our prints are outdoor durable and we also use an approved, matching overlaminate.

To care for your signage, it’s best to hand wash it and refrain from using high pressure cleaners and abrasive polishes. Wash by hand gently and you’ll find your wrap will last a lot longer.

We can also take care of design work for you and walk you through our production processes so you can rest easy knowing that your car is taken care of by a dedicated group of professionals.

Bonnet Wrap: Australian Flag

One of our customers came in and asked us if we could do a bonnet wrap on his Jeep Grand Cherokee. The answer, of course, was yes. But rather than simply wrapping the bonnet in a matt black or even a gloss black, this time, the request was a little different.


As you can see here, he asked for an Australian flag. For us who do vehicle wraps all the time, it wasn’t a problem. And because we use Avery vinyls and laminates, the adhesion and longevity are guaranteed.


The application took a couple of hours and the customer was over the moon. Of course, we can do bonnet wraps in any design and for any car. The only limitation is your imagination.

How do I care for my bonnet wrap?

Looking after your bonnet wrap is easy. Simply wash it by hand (don’t use a high pressure cleaner) and wax it afterward. Don’t use a cutting compound or polish, but plastic polishes are fine.

If you’d like a bonnet wrap then simply head to our contact page to enquire. We’d love to hear from you.

Vehicle Wraps

Executing a professional vehicle wrap isn’t as simple as just throwing on a sticker. Vehicle wraps need to be properly planned and properly carried out.


Perth Graphics Centre’s expertise in vehicle wraps is evident in this wrap we did for Galleria Toyota. The design was planned around the shape of the car, and problem areas were identified. Each step was considered, including which panels would be laid down first to achieve the best result.


The attention to detail was such that the panels were fitted from back to front, allowing the panels overlap toward the rear. This ensures that when driving in wet weather, water isn’t hitting the edge of the overlap.


It doesn’t stop there. Combinining digital printing onto high-performance outdoor grade vinyl with durable solvent inks, plus one way vision with protective laminate means maximum visibility with maximum coverage. The UV-protective coatings will ensure the graphics last their longest.

Each body panel was washed and cleaned with chemicals which strip off oily residue and the vinyl is massaged into the deeper recesses and baked into position. It all adds up to a vehicle wrap that befits the company’s professional branding.

If there’s a vehicle wrap you need, Perth Graphics Centre is the company to do it.
