Frequently Asked Questions

What do I have to do to get started?

Click here to get started online, or give us a call at (828)-228-9892, we will be happy to assist you.

Can I get flourescent, chrome, or reflective in my wrap?

Absolutely!  These specialty vinyls, while being an upcharge, can certainly make your wrap stand out better on the track.

What is your turnaround time?

Turnaround times on new car designs vary due to the time of the year, complexity of the project and the needs of the customer.  We like to think of ourselves as a part of your racing team and try to accommodate all of our client's needs.  Just communicate with us what your deadlines are and we will do our best to exceed them.

Turnaround times on most re-orders will ship either the same day or next day.  Exceptions to this are when there is an extraordinary amount of inlays or a large quantity.  Most clients send us a text on Sunday or Monday after they assess their needs from the previous weekend.

Do you install the wraps?

We encourage all of our customers to install their own wraps.  We do this so that you do not have to pay someone to do it for you thus saving money and so that you aren't dependant on someone.  Installation is not challenging due to the forgiveness of our air-egress (bubble free) material and once you get the courage to do it yourself, you won't look back.

Do I have to order a whole wrap even if I need just a panel ?

Not at all.  If all you need is a quarter panel or a filler panel, that is all you have to order.

At what stage of my car construction should I contact you?

We encourage you to communicate with us as early as possible to help you pick the right colors for your chassis, decking, body and plastic.  The wrap will not cover every square inch of the car and thus we have to work with the colors of those mentioned items.  It is not necessary  though and we will design you an award-winning wrap at any stage.

Do you grant any sponsorships or do discounts?

Dirtwrap is continually evaluating race teams, series and markets.  We currently have cars in 47 states, Australia and Canada, and are always looking to strengthen our brand awareness and image on a national and international basis.  Click here to submit a sponsorship application and we will certainly review it and reply to your request.   One point to remember is that sponsorships aren't always given to the racers who win the most.  Much more important than that is how you plan to promote the company that is sponsoring you so that the company can increase whatever goal they desire; marketshare, branding, etc.

Will you send me the artwork so I can send it to get tshirts or a website done?

Will you ship to Australia or Canada?

Yes, we ship all over the world.

If I have a sponsor that has a logo, what format do I need to send it to you in?

To answer this question, we have explain the difference between vector artwork and raster artwork.  Vector artwork is created by lines and shapes while raster artwork is created by pixels, or little squares.  A photo is a raster image and you can tell by looking at a photo closely and noticing the small squares.  With raster images, a parameter called "resolution" defines its clarity, while with vector images resolution is not applicable.   An example of this is with billboards;  if you were to look at a photo on a billboard up close you could not tell what it was because it would be so "pixelated", whereas if a logo or design made in vector is on a billboard it would look just as crisp and clean up close as it would small on a piece of paper.

One thing to note, that an image can always go from vector to raster but never from raster to vector.  So saving a raster image in a vector format will not be suitable to submit.  If an image was created in adobe illustrator, corel draw or flexisign it is more than likely a vector image.  If the image was created in adobe photoshop, microsoft paint, or any other photo editing program it is a raster image.

Ideally, the logo needs to originate in a vector program to be sent in a .ai, .eps, or .pdf format, and, must be converted to outlines or converted to paths (eliminates the connection to the font which we may or may not have) and preferably remove gradients.

Do you wrap helmets? 

No, we do not wrap helmets.
