Adobe Illustrator is a great tool for designing vehicle wraps, and with the help of Adobe PhotoShop you can achieve beautiful, high impact results. Perhaps the most important tip for the designer is to begin with an accurate template and work closely with your print provider to follow their required quidelines. Installation and print considerations can sometimes trump an interesting design idea when it comes down to the practicality of applying images on vinyl to metal. Below are 10 tips to bear in mind while working with wrap designs.


Your design starts with an accurate template of your vehicle — they are available from the manufacturer or online and are essential for creation of your design at the correct size. Most templates come drawn at a scale of 1:20. Change the scale from 1:20 to 1:10 by selecting all and increasing the size by 200%. Now the scale is 1:10, where 1 inch onscreen equals 10 inches in real life. When the files are output, they are scaled at 1000%. It keeps the math simple.

Begin by setting up your template with the correct layers. One layer will need to include all the bumpers, windows and elements that allow you to view the design in a realistic way, but are really not needed for printing. This layer should be at the top of the Layers palette. You can keep it locked while you work. Create separate layers for each of the different views that will be printed out: passenger side, drivers side, front, back and top. On each layer you will need to place a copy of the vehicle outline of that view to clip the images/artwork placed there. Create a Clipping Layer (not just a clipping path). That way, all art placed on that layer will be clipped, regardless of its order in the palette. When it comes time for output the clipping mask can be turned off. Also, name each layer clearly. Keeping all of this organized is the key to creating usable files that your printer can use for output.

Keep in perspective how your wrapped vehicle will be seen – usually while in motion, or from a driver’s level view while sitting in traffic. Bolder colors and one main point of focus might work best to make your design eye-catching. Extensive text will probably not be very useful. By the way, if your vehicle has a sliding door, be sure any text or images don’t create an unexpected result when the door is open… you don’t want to be surprised by what might inadvertently be created!

Be careful of the corners! Bear in mind that your design has to be tiled into panels which are generally 52 inches wide, and your print provider or installer will need to discuss with you any concerns they have about how difficult the crossovers on these panels will be to line up during application. When you design a side view, it will have to connect with the front and back view. These “corners” will have to either match or have some allowance made for one image ending and the other beginning. If you can work in a solid color in these areas, or white space, it may prevent an awkward crossover in the finished product.

If you work with Photoshop to bring in image or pixel-based artwork for your wrap, be sure you are using a high resolution image. The preferred resolution for an image placed at 100% in this 1:10 scale is 720dpi – much higher than what is preferred for standard offset printing. The reason is that these files will be output at 1000%. File sizes will be large. [Green gar with vinyl car wrap]

Some parts of your vehicle cannot be wrapped: state laws effect which windows can be covered with 50/50 window graphic material, and some plastic components will not allow the vinyl material to properly adhere. Consult the installer to find out these limitations, and to determine whether handles, chrome, and other decorative pieces can be removed, covered, or cut around.

Keep it simple. Overly complex designs will often defeat your purpose, both in being visually confusing and difficult to install. Car wraps have great proven recall rates, but too much information will work against a good impression.

Allow for at least 3 inches of bleed area outside the outline of the vehicle – that translates to .3 inches at the 1:10 scale you are working with. When in doubt, leave even more.

Avoid use of spot colors – go ahead and convert them to CMYK or RGB (whichever mode in which your provider suggests you work). The use of spot colors where any transparency is involved can result in some strange and unexpected results when printed.

Save a copy of your file to keep. Then turn all your fonts to outlines, save it as an eps and turn that in, along with ALL linked or placed image files, to your print provider.

Expect your printer to make some adjustments, with your approval, to your files in order to achieve the best results. It is also a good idea to doublecheck measurements between your digital template and the actual vehicle to avoid any costly mistakes. Designing “flat” artwork to fit over an irregular three dimensional object can be tricky, so work closely with your printer and installer to achieve the best possible outcome.

We often take our windshield for granted. It seems to always be there when we are driving, and for the most part doesn't cause any trouble. It is, however, very important that your windshield be in good repair. If it does need replaced, it has to be done correctly to ensure the safety of yourself and your passengers.

Removing the Old Windshield

Remove any plastic moldings from around the windshield. Take care to remove any clips holding the molding in place properly. These clips release many different ways (i.e. pull straight out, remove the middle first, push in from either side, etc.) but damaging them will mean that they have to be replaced. They can range from very cheap, to relatively expensive, and some of them are hard to find.

Analyze the best angle to separate the windshield from the pinch-weld. The pinch-weld is where different metal components of the car come together in the front. They are welded together around the front of the car, forming a frame for the windshield.In order to remove the windshield you must cut it away from the pinch-weld. This can be done from inside or outside the vehicle with a cold knife or razor.

Cut the urethane. The urethane is a very strong, but flexible, polymer based adhesive. It holds the glass to the pinch-weld, but allows enough movement so that the glass does not crack from the stress placed on it when driving driving.
If you choose to cut from the outside you might have a problem when the windshield has been placed too close to the pinch-weld. If there is less than 1/8” of urethane then the knife will not have room to drag properly. This causes the glass to break and make a mess.
Cutting the windshield out from the inside of the vehicle is the other option. You can use an extended handle razor knife and cut with a repeated dragging motion. Many installers also use power cutters which are faster but do more damage to the metal pinch-weld.
 

Remove the windshield from the car. This should be done with two people. Open the front door on either side of the car and reach one arm in to gently push the glass away from the pinch-weld. Get a hold of the glass from the outside of the car and lift it straight up off of the pinch-weld.

 

Preparing the Pinch-weld

Trim off excess urethane. The pinch-weld usually has old urethane about ¼” thick more or less and it needs to be trimmed down to 3/16” or about 3 mm with a razor.

Remove any rust from the pinch-weld. Any rusty areas or areas with loose/damaged urethane will need to be sanded back to bare metal to remove all rust.

Prime any bare metal. This will help with adhesion of the urethane, but also is necessary to prevent the metal from rusting in the future.

Install the New Windshield

Apply a primer to the frit band. The purpose of the primer is to open the molecules of the frit band (the black band around the perimeter of the windshield) to accept the urethane molecules.

Apply the urethane with an electric caulking gun. The best thing for the new urethane to adhere to is the old urethane.
It must be clean and free from dirt, oil or other contaminants.
One problem installers have is wind blowing dust onto the pinch-weld before the urethane adhesive has been applied.
The job can be done without an electric gun but it is much more difficult to get a consistent bead, making leaks likely.
 

Install the windshield. Carefully align the top bottom and sides by sight.
Some vehicles have mounting block for the bottom of the windshield to rest on, others do not.
Be careful not to touch the frit band because the oils and dirt from your skin can contaminate the activated glass and reduce adhesion to the urethane.
 

Allow the urethane to set. Driving before the urethane has set completely is very dangerous. Depending on the type of urethane used, it will take between 1 and 24 hours to set. Follow manufacturer’s instructions regarding safe drive away times.

 

Warnings
The windshield is a crucial part of the crash safety system. Improper installation can lead to serious injury or death. If you are unsure about any part of the process you should consult a professional.

Driving at night can be a daunting task for new or even experienced drivers; the highest crash rates occur at nighttime (6:00 PM - 6:00 AM). Additionally, traffic fatality rates are three to four times greater at night than during the daytime. Part of this comes from the likelihood that drivers are driving when tired, stressed or under the influence of drugs or alcohol You can reduce the dangers by making sure you have as few risk factors as possible, and can see as easily as possible. At night, our vision is more limited (low lights decrease depth perception and peripheral vision and cause the pupils to dilate, often blurring vision), and glare from the headlights of other vehicles can temporarily blind you. Glare is particularly invasive since it can cause temporary blindness, dizziness, and confusion.

Fortunately, there are several ways to reduce and handle glare through the use of specific techniques, strategies, and equipment.

1 、Check your car before you start to drive. Especially if you are going to be driving toward the sun or after dark, before you put the car in gear, take a few moments to determine if you need to do some spot cleaning. Keep window cleaner and paper towels in the car so you can deal with this whenever you need to./2、Clean the windshield, windows, and glass surfaces. This includes the car's mirrors. Any streaks, road grime, or smudges on the glass scatter light, reducing the contrast of objects on the roadway and consequently can make them appear invisible[2]. Also, clean the inside of the windshield, because plastic chemicals can slowly build up on the glass. Clean the wiper blades using a paper towel and windshield washer fluid to remove the grime and oxidized rubber from the edge of the blade. This helps prevent streaks. If there are still streaks, you will probably need to get new blades. If there are any chips or cracks in your windshield, have them repaired immediately.

3、Clean the car's headlights. Even small amounts of dirt on the lamp can reduce the light output by half and restrict your ability to see and be seen. This is especially true if you have HID (High-Intensity Discharge) lights, because dirt diffuses the light from the lamp, causing glare that can be blinding to other drivers. If/when you have an annual inspection or you have a check-up at a dealer, car mechanic, or repair shop, have your headlights aligned. At least half of the vehicles on the road have an improperly aimed headlight and sometimes even both are misaligned. Properly aligned headlights will not only help you see better, but they will also keep you from casting the glare on other drivers. Older vehicles can improve headlight illumination/transmission efficiency by lapping or polishing the exterior of the headlights. As a result of exposure to road dirt, sand and road debris, the exterior of the headlights can become crazed, pitted and dull. Most auto parts suppliers carry a "lapping/polishing compound" specifically designed for headlight exteriors.

4、Adjust the car mirrors properly. The American Automobile Association (AAA) recommends this method for setting your mirrors: Lean to the left and rest your head against the window and adjust the driver side mirror so that you can just see the left rear corner of your vehicle. Then, lean to the right to the center of the vehicle and adjust your passenger side mirror until the right rear corner of the vehicle is just visible. This mirror setting reduces glare, blind spots, and makes it easier to identify vehicles on the side and rear. (Of course, if you are in a country where you must drive on the left side of the road - reverse the above directions.)

5、Have your vision checked regularly. According to the American Optometric Association, everyone under age 60 should have an eye exam at least every two years, and annually after the age of 60. [3] The older you are, the more sensitive your eyes become, but medical conditions associated with your eyes can also severely amplify the problem. If identified early, you may be able to get adequate treatment. If you have any glasses or contact lenses, make sure they are clean and scratch-free. Scratched and dirty glasses make glare worse.


Almost one in three drivers reports difficulty seeing when driving at night.[4] Raise any particular concerns you have with your eye specialist.

Check regularly that your prescription glasses or contact lenses are up-to-date. Your eye specialist can help confirm this for you.




 

6、Avoid looking directly at the headlights of oncoming traffic. Instead, look down and to the right. You should be able to gaze at the white line on the side of the road or where the pavement meets the shoulder. Use the right side of the road for tracking your lane instead of the left side. You will still be able to see other vehicles with your peripheral vision, but the glare won't bother you as much. Reverse these directions if you are driving in a country with left-hand traffic.

7、Flip the rearview mirror. You can change the mirror to its night setting by flipping a small lever at the bottom of the mirror. Lights will still appear in the glass, but they will appear much dimmer and therefore not be as bothersome.

8、Take frequent breaks if you're driving at night for extended periods of time. Having a break reduces fatigue and gives your eyes recovery time. You should also take a short nap or a brisk walk to keep alert.

Window tinting adds elegance and distinction to any car. Apart from awesome privacy, tinting helps with driving especially when the sun is directly in your face. Tinting also blocks up to 99% UV rays which goes a long way in protecting both the passengers and upholstery. Tinted cars experience less interior cracking, fading or even warping. If you spend a lot of time on the road, you can’t afford to miss out on this invaluable addition.

Choosing the right tinting then becomes the next challenge. Here are 7 tips for choosing a car window tinting that gives your car both style and substance.

1. Familiarize with the various tinting options

The more information you have regarding car window tinting, the better it is for you. As a first step, consider visiting a window tinting shop and learn about the several available options. Scorpion deals in a variety of car window tint and could make for a great place to learn about types of car window tints.

2. Top tier tints vs. average tints

The choice here depends on two things: how much you are willing to spend on getting your windows tinted and your usage of the car. Top tier tints are long lasting, more appealing to the eye and generally do the job better.

3. Consider buying UV reflecting window tints

Exposing the skin to UV radiation for extended period of time is believed to be unhealthy. UV window tinting helps you keep at bay up to 99% UV rays from the sun. UV car window tinting also ensures that sun’s energy is not trapped in the car. This eliminates the oven effect often experienced if a car stays for long periods in the sun.

4. Know what your state laws say about car window tinting

Every state has its laws regarding window tinting. You don’t want the cops flagging you down because your windows are too dark. Find out the allowable tinting limits for each window before you set out to make a purchase.

5. Let the tinting be done by a pro

Everyone can try tinting but only a pro can bring out that unique elegance. Pro tinting will definitely cost a little more but it’s definitely worth that extra charge.

6.Know where to tint and where not to

The side mirror, for example, should not be tinted. This also applies to the rear mirror. Lighter shades of window tint will be safer on rear and side windows but dark tint is whole different thing. It can obscure parts of the window which makes it difficult to view images.

7. Know how to maintain your window tints

After the tint is installed, you should wait for a few days before cleaning and rolling down your windows. You should not risk pulling the tint loose until you are sure it is fully dried. After having tint applied, the window is usually cleaned by the installer. When cleaning, it is recommended to use a soft paper towel and any ammonia-free cleaner. Scorpion Window Film gives elaborate tips on car window tint cleaning and maintenance.
