Coloured Wrap Films
We use materials that offer performance and versatility. All of our vinyl is ‘cast vinyl’ or ‘multi cast vinyl’. Either the multilayered film incorporates a clear protective layer, or we apply an overlaminate.
Choice seeks smooth finishes that grab attention with strong dazzling effect. Your vehicle will distinguish itself from the back through quality and confidence with the newest and hottest technologies in the field.
We refer to premium finishes such as carbon fibre, matte black, and colour changing materials as premium colour vinyl. These finishes offer more flexibility than conventional auto painting. Vinyl installation and replacement are more practical the car paint at only a fraction of the cost.
Choosing The Right Vinyl
There are two leading manufacturers, 3M and Avery Dennison each with a selection of top performing vinyl. Advice on which materials will work best for you is an invaluable part of the service. Depending on the installation surface and the desired effect, each material has unique characteristics which affect its suitability. For example, metallics are not as flexible as solid colours and colour changing vinyl. Another example is when colour changing materials are polarised and require that panels be installed with the same orientation to match the colour changing effect across the span of the vehicle. Some materials with patterns (such as carbon fibre) need to have the seams aligned to avoid awkward breaks in the design. Experience plays a significant role in understanding the traits of each material and knowing which one to select for each installation.

Do you install wraps?
If you have experience installing vinyl or if you are a proclaimed DIY looking for a supplier it might be worth calling us to discuss a co-op buying arrangement. Although we don’t hold inventory or stock large amounts of vinyl in a warehouse, we do have purchasing power and by working with other shops and individuals through group buys or even to compare price points we ensure the supply chains remain in our favour. Choice Wraps understands that at our level there is more than enough work to go around and through working together with other wrap shops we can share learning and benefit together.
