A. We offer creative design ideas and eye catching vehicle wraps to help businesses of all sizes and types stand out from their competition. A large majority of our client base for vehicle wraps work in the trades - plumbers, electricians, pool builders, caterers, etc. However, vehicle wraps are very effective marketing tools for all types of business and events, too!

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.
A. We recently completed wrapping the entire fleet of shuttle buses for the Port of Galveston Cruise Terminal. This was an exciting project and we look forward to hearing a lot of great feedback from our friends and customers as they go on their summer cruises!
Although that project has kept us busy for the last few weeks, we have also recently completed a 4 brand new cargo van wraps for Village Plumbing & Home Services and a cargo van wrap for Milton Frank Plumbing's new home renovation division called Inspired Spaces! Keep a look out for those awesome and eye catching wraps on the road!
Every week brings something new to GFX Wraps. Our online portfolio and Facebook photo gallery show all of our clients' projects!
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. We understand that cost is an important factor when choosing a vehicle wrap provider. It's important to remember, you are hiring a designer to create an image for your business. In many cases, the cheapest option isn't the best option. Our prices are very competitive but our products are tough to beat. Our design team has over 20 years in graphic design and direct experience in corporate marketing. Our installers have over 10 years of experience installing vehicle wraps. We are among the best in the business and we will make sure you get noticed!
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Vehicle wraps are expensive. There is no way around it. The largest cost component to a vehicle wrap is the vinyl that we print on and the clear laminate that goes over the print to protect it. It's important that when you are comparing vehicle wrap provider quotes, that you are comparing apples to apples. Some providers will cut corners and use a cheaper material in order to pocket a few extra dollars. We will not cut corners! We use only the best 3M vinyl and laminate available for all our vehicle wraps. Rest assured that 3M pioneered every aspect of vehicle wrap vinyl and it is the best project out there for the job. Don't let anyone sell you on some cheap alternative!
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. In the vehicle wrap industry, it's important to make sure the company you hire knows what they are doing. There is no better way to make sure they do good work that to look at some of their completed work! Ask to see some of the vehicles they have wrapped. If there are no projects available to look at, surely they have a shop vehicle or two that are wrapped. Look closely. Make sure the prints are crisp and clean... not pixilated and blurry. Make sure there aren't splices and seam in the vinyl all over the place. A good wrap is a seamless wrap... or virtually seamless in the case of larger vehicles like cargo vans, Sprinter vans, etc.
Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?
A. You wouldn't hire a portrait painter or a wedding photographer without first looking at their work, would you? Why would you hire a vehicle wrap provider without looking at some of their completed work first?
In vehicle wraps, design is everything. There are a million print shops out there with the ability to order the materials and print a wrap. Without a clean, eye catching, effective and readable design... the wrap will be a waste. Make sure you look through the shop's portfolio of work and make sure they can create designs that suit the style of your brand!
