FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is a vinyl boat wrap easily removable?

 

A vinyl boat wrap produced by Texas Boat Wraps in San Antonio can be completely removed with no damage to the underlying surface and no glue residue left behind if the original surface was in good condition when the vinyl was applied. Removing a vinyl decal wrap can be very time consuming, leave the wrap removal to the professionals at Texas Boat Wraps.

 

What’s the cost difference between painting and a vinyl boat wrap?

 

Boat wraps can cost significantly less than the price of a marine paint job. The cost savings are even better when considering the fact that boat wraps can be applied quickly.

 

Why are some costs higher for different boats?

 

The cost for vinyl decal wrapping a boat is more for larger boats than smaller ones. Larger boats use more materials and take more time for installation. Some boat wraps are more difficult due to the shape of the boat hull. Contact us for a quote on your specific needs.

 

Can vinyl be applied to any type of boat?

 

Yes, we can apply adhesive vinyl decals to painted hulls, fiberglass hulls, steel hulls, gelcoats and aluminium boats as log as the surfaces are smooth and are in good condition. Some surfaces cannot be installed, call us for more information.

 

Does my boat need to come out of the water to be vinyl wrapped?

 

Most trailerable boats can be installed on the trailer. Very large boats can sometimes be wrapped while in the water. Call us to discuss your specific needs for your boat.

 

What is the process of wrapping a boat?

 

The boat wrap process begins with detailed measurements of your boat by one of our experienced graphic designers. We will calculate an estimated cost based on the measurements. We will then build a full sized boat wrap template in using our computer design software. The boat wrap graphics are then designed and a full digital representation is created for client approval. We will next print and laminate using 3M graphic materials. Your boat surface will be thoroughly cleaned and prepped using specialized cleaning solutions. A knifeless cutting system will be placed before installation of the vinyl and adhesion promotion primer may also be applied at this point. The vinyl graphics are meticulously applied then trimmed using the knifeless system. Finally, edge sealer is applied and the wrap is thoroughly inspected to ensure a flawless installation.

 

How long does it take to apply a decal boat wrap?

 

It normally takes a few days to install a boat wrap depending on the size of the boat. Call us for an estimated installation schedule 210-286-3052. Or email us photos at Howard@EagleFordGraphics.com

 

Can vinyl be applied below the waterline?

 

Vinyl can be applied below the waterline on boats that are brought out of the water on a daily basis. We cannot guarantee boat wrap longevity on boats that are permanently moored in the water.

 

How long does a decal boat wrap last?

 

We use the highest grade 3M films in the production of our boat wraps. Although 3M rates the lifespan of their vinyl films with laminate for a seven years, we recommend removing a vinyl boat wrap within 5 years to help with difficult removal scenarios.

 

How durable is a boat wrap?

 

Vinyl wraps will scratch more easily than paint or gelcoat especially when tying boats to docks and the motion of the water causes abrasions to the wrap. If damage occurs, we can simply remove the affected area and replace a section of the vinyl for a near invisible repair.

 

How do I care for a vinyl boat wrap?

 

Wash your vinyl boat wrap with soapy water only (never abrasives or solvents), take care with high pressure water wands around edges and seams. Keeping your boat out of direct sunlight will help keep your boat wrap looking as good as the day it was wrapped.

 

What happens if the vinyl finish gets scratched, torn or damaged?

 

Vinyl boat wraps are incredibly easy to repair if damaged. Just cut out the affected area, then measure, cut and apply a suitable patch. If applied correctly, the joins should be practically invisible when viewed from a few meters away or more. And because printed vinyl with laminate is fade-resistant, you won’t need to worry about colour-matching.

 

How much does a boat wrap typically cost?

 

Partial boat wraps start out at $700.00, full coverage boat wraps can run much more. Call us for a specific estimate. 210-286-3052

 

What happens if I spill gas on my boat wrap?

 

Your Texas Boat Wrap graphics are temporarily resistant to gasoline and most oils. Gasoline and solvents must be cleaned within a few minutes to prevent the chemicals from eating through the vinyl wrap. Special care must be taken when refueling.

 

Can windows be covered with graphics?

 

We use perforated window film on windows and boat windshields. Perforated film has a shorter lifespan than vinyl graphics applied to the hull and must be replaced every few years depending on boat storage and use factors.

 

Can I receive my boat wrapped by the dealer?

 

In some cases you can have your boat wrapped by us through your boat dealer and some boat dealers will even finance the cost of the wrap at the time of boat purchase. Call us for details.
