Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT TYPE OF MOTORCYCLES ARE YOU ABLE TO WRAP?
We are a Team of dedicated designers who can create a project for any type of motorbike. If you’re wondering if we have something for your bike model – the answer is yes. Any project that you can see on our website was developed from scratch and so is any work that we take on, to ensure optimal results every single time.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WRAP OVER PAINT JOB?
There are plenty of them and we’ve listed a few of them for you:
Getting a custom look for your motorbike can be much more creative and detailed with a vinyl wrap when compared to paint job. There are no limits in what can be done with your design and you can approve the digital version of the concept before it’s applied to your vehicle.
When you hand your vehicle over for a custom paint job, you are never exactly sure what it will look like when it is finished. If you don’t like it, it will be too late and will be very expensive to alter. The digital design process for a vehicle wrap is done on a computer. That puts you in charge of the design process allowing you to make comments and changes as the design is developing.
The durability of a paint job can vary and lower-end paint jobs will only last a couple of years before starting to chip. High quality vinyls from Apex Clan will last anywhere between 5 up to 10 years. It also comes with manufacturer guarantee for any issues for the material used.
Maintaining a paint job can be hard work if you want your bike to always look their best. Using special products including wax can be tiring and time consuming. When you have your vehicle wrapped, all you have to do it wash it and drive away. What could be more simple?
Any damage to a custom paint job is very hard to repair and could require a complete respray of the entire motorbike to get the exact same colour. A vinyl wrap is much easier and cheaper to repair. Once the underlying paintwork has been sorted out, you simply reapply that damaged section of vinyl wrap.
Not only does a wrap not detract from the resale value but it may also increase it. In contrast, painting a motorbike an untraditional color inevitably detracts from its value. It will appeal to fewer buyers and you may have trouble selling it. A customized paint job is even worse. What are the chances of you finding a buyer whose tastes exactly match yours? A wrap is easy to remove. Once it has been taken off, the paintwork will look just like it did before and will not be damaged. It will be easy for you to sell on your vehicle.
HOW LONG DOES A MOTORCYCLE WRAP LAST?
We do give guarantee and without any external damages the wrap should last at least 3-5 years. There are few factors which determine how long your wrap will last for example if your motorcycle fairings were damaged before wrapping. We use high quality materials only however that final result depends on the quality of your bike paint as well. If there is no sign of break and the surface is fine, then you will be happy with the quality for a long time. General maintenance after wrapping your bike is also important. We do recommend to not use any chemical substances in the cleaning process to not cause skin damages.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WRAP MY BIKE?
Quality takes time, therefore the entire process takes at least 14 days. In this time we are designing the project for you, ordering materials and assembling printed vinyls to the motorbike. We are carefully checking if all the process is completed to the highest demands. It is our job to make sure that vinyls are applied perfectly from start to finish so you can be happy with the result.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
There’s no price that could be set for all the projects as each motorbike that we work on is different and so are the customers requirements. It also depends on the type of materials used to wrap as some foils such as chrome can be 5 times more expensive than standard palette. Due to this we provide personalised prices each time we start a new project and learn about customer’s expectations.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO PEEL THE STICKERS OFF AND WHY?
Yes it is possible and you will need to heat them up to do so. There are customers expecting stickers to stay as long as possible and we can guarantee that, if your bike is not exposed on any damages or chemical substances. If you, however, wish to go back to the original design or change it to new one, we are also giving you this opportunity without affecting the paint.
WOULD IT BE CHEAPER WITH MY OWN PROJECT?
Unless you have prepared all designs by using the same tools as we do, it won’t be any cheaper as it’s likely that we will have to start over to configure everything what you have prepared. Save your time and leave it to professionals as we know best how to turn your ideas into designs.
IF I WOULD ASSEMBLE WRAP ON MY OWN, WOULD IT MAKE IT CHEAPER?
Yes, naturally if you would apply the vinyls yourself, we would not charge you for the cost of labour attached to that job. We do offer a pre-cut stickers and sets of decals that you could easily apply yourself. However if you are hoping to apply a full wrap vinyl on your own, and have no experience in that field, then we strongly recommend against that.
DO I NEED TO TRANSPORT MOTORCYCLE TO YOUR GARAGE?
Although we would be happy if you bring the motorbike to our studio, there is no need to to that, as the best and approved way is to send fairings by a courier. All that is simple and easy when compared to shipping/transporting the whole motorcycle. The most important thing to remember here is to send clean fairing without any chemicals applied on them as it is vital for the quality of the wrap.
CAN YOU PREPARE SIMULATIONS OF THE PROJECT SO I CAN DECIDE WHICH ONE I WANT BEFORE I PLACE AN ORDER?
Unfortunately we don’t offer a pre-designs before placing an order. As you can appreciate we need at least one working day of designer, per project. Therefore if we would be to create a ‘testing’ designs free of charge for all of our customers, we would simply go bankrupt. Good news is, we do have amazing graphic designers, who will make sure you are getting the best possible design, based on your preferences and requirements.
WHAT IF I WILL NOT LIKE THE PROJECT?
Our passionate graphic designers are artists with many years of experience in this field as you can see in our portfolio. The better you describe your requirements the better we are going to be able to reflect your expectations. We realize that customer may wish to change some elements of the concept design and so we do offer at least two rounds of changes into the project.
CAN I PAINT WRAP/STICKERS?
Yes you can, however we do not take responsibility for it. We recommend to remove or change the stickers should you wish to apply paint on your motorbike.
WILL WRAP DAMAGE MY ORIGINAL PAINTWORK?
If the fairings are not damaged before applying the wrap, it will not damage your motorcycle.
In case your paintwork has been damaged before and had stone chips or your motorcycle has undergone a respray – it may pull loose paint off when removed. We do not take responsibility for this and can only guarantee no issues if wrap was applied on original paint.
