It may be snowing today, but boating season is right around the corner! Days like today have us all day dreaming about being out on the water. When you are day dreaming about being out on the water, imagine what your boat would look like with a fresh new vinyl boat wrap on it!
Have questions about vinyl boat wraps? Below are a few of the most common questions we get.
WHAT’S THE COST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PAINTING AND VINYL WRAPPING?
Vinyl boat wrapping can cost as little as a third of the price of a marine paint job. The cost savings are further increased by the fact that boat wraps can be applied in as little as a day or two, and can be done outdoors, reducing yard and shed time.
CAN VINYL BE APPLIED TO ANY BOAT?
More or less, yes! We can apply vinyl to painted hulls (topcoat or undercoat), gelcoats and aluminum boats, provided the surfaces are sound.
DOES MY BOAT NEED TO COME OUT OF THE WATER TO BE VINYL WRAPPED?
Yes, your boat will need to be hauled out for a hull wrap, but for most boats, wrapping the hull will take just one or two days, so the costs for yard time are minimal.
HOW LONG DOES A VINYL HULL FINISH LAST?
The premium 3M vinyl we use has a lifespan of up to 7 years (depending on the type of vinyl used), which makes it comparable with a marine paint job. Vinyl is generally more fade-resistant than paint, so you may find a vinyl wrap will keep your boat looking great for even longer than a paint job.
IS A VINYL WRAP REVERSIBLE?
Yes, a vinyl boat wrap can be fully reversed with no damage to the underlying surface and no glue residue left behind, provided the underlying surface is in a good, sound condition when the vinyl is applied. Removing a vinyl wrap can be quite time-consuming, especially if the vinyl is old, but it is certainly possible.

January was a busy month for us here at Pure Graphix. 2018 started off strong and we are excited to keep the momentum going through the rest of the year! The past month we have brought on some new clients and continued to help current clients reach more customers through print advertising.
We completed a ton of projects, but here are a few we would like to highlight.
GEICO Wall Graphics
We have been working with GEICO over the past few months to help update the look inside their corporate office here in Fredericksburg, VA. In January, we installed some wall graphics and cast aluminum letters in the lobby. This project really helps create a statement as soon as you step into the building. We look forward to continuing this great relationship with GEICO throughout 2018!
