Given the current state of the economy, and the fact that almost everybody has access to a computer these days, more and more people are taking the initiative and relying on their ingenuity to design their own Car Wrap.
That’s actually an awesome idea! No design fees! No interaction with whiny/fickle designers! No problem!
Well, there’s actually one problem…. you don’t know how to design one!!!
Fear not my technologically deficient/artistically challenged friend!!! Over the next couple of weeks, your good friends here at WRAPVEHICLES.COM are going to go over an easy to follow detailed process that will help educate you on how to design your very own Car Wrap correctly and efficiently. This entire series of posts will help walk you through the entire wrap process step-by-step. From how to measure your vehicle correctly, all the way to the final stages of file preparation before you send it off for production.
In this week’s post, we’ll go over the materials needed to get started. You may not have some of the items listed, and that’s ok. Borrow what you can and work with what you got. Even though you might not have everything needed to complete the wrap in it’s entirety, following along and doing what you can will help steer you in the right direction as well as giving you a more definitive idea of what you might want or need for your Car Wrap. This will be incredibly helpful incase you have to hand off the design to a Printing Company or a Design Agency at some point in this process. There’s nothing more annoying to some over-caffeinated dirty hipster of a Designer than actually trying to figure out what you want if you’re not sure of it yourself. (That and working.)
Below is a checklist including all the necessary materials needed to get started. Most of these items can be found in any household, others might be a little more challenging to obtain. As stated earlier, work to the best of your abilities with what you have at your disposal and good things will follow. 😉
Now go out and collect these materials!!! Don’t worry, we’ll give you some time to gather everything on this list. When you’re finally ready, come back for Part 2 in this series… How to Measure your Car.
