'How kits are processed'
Today's prints are state of the art, and no longer use regular or water based ink technologies. Instead, the industry has for the past few years brought us high grade solvent ink processing.
It takes a special printing machine to carry and dispense this aggressive long lasting solvent and is the absolute best for all permanent print work.
When the print media passes through the printer, it's first preheated so to open the pores of the vinyl. This allows the solvents to penetrate deep and beyond the surface. It is then heated a second time as it exits the machine, and then set aside to gas off before lamination.
It's such a perfect process, that it is to a point abrasion resistant even without the over-laminating. However, all prints are treated with an over laminate to keep them looking perfect while offering the additional surface protection.
The end result of the deep embedding and UV stable process is nothing less than the very best that technology has offered to the print world, and will remain vibrant and color-fast, thus, maintaining all the subtle details for years.
High quality art with a lot of detailing always looks best under a glossy clear lens laminate. The finish is incredible and adds amazing depth to the print. Without it, the underlying print would be vulnerable to exposure.
Among other reasons, the over laminate also provides ultra violet protection.
On the flip side, some patterns like camouflage and other solid designs may look best under a medium to no-gloss finish.
This is sometimes chosen to enhance the overall effect of the pattern or design. It also has less glare and is easier to see regardless of viewing angle and lighting.
Laminates come in a variety of thicknesses and finishes, however 'thickest' is not always best. Thick laminates on thick print media are more easily affected by repeated hot and cold transitions. This is because the rate of expansion of the underlying plastics vs. the adhesive and pliability of the vinyl are rated differently. Not to say that it doesn't work, as it does quite well. Though in the long term, you may notice that a graphic panel which have a shape or area that comes to a point offers less contact (adhesive) and is the vulnerable area to expansion/contraction. So in deciding, there are times when a thinner or medium laminate/media combo will offer a better life span and easier application as it's more pliable and works better with the underlying surfaces and compound curves.
Specialty 'wrap' media and over laminate are among the thinnest, yet the technology used in its development are premium and offer the advantage of mounting onto organic surfaces that other media/laminate combinations just can't do. Wrap media offers superior performance to take on contours perfectly on surfaces which are smooth and that have very sharp X and Y curves.
Wrap is best applied dry instead of using the wet application methods. Heat can be used to shrink and stretch it, whereas, the other combinations don't have the chemistry or technology incorporated into them.
Suffice to say, there are several different print and laminate media available to work from, and I choose what is best for the application. Wrap will not work on low energy plastics as it takes a different media to adhere properly.
All processed kits are completely cutout from the background and is one of the many unique features none other offers. It takes longer, but here are the benefits:
As many panels may be independent from the others, fully cutout kits allow the installer a greater advantage of taping every piece into place first before the adhesion process takes place. This permits time to get acquainted with the orientation, setting proper balance and perspective from left side to right, and down the middle.
Here is how I do my installations:
I'll use temporary painters tape to set each of the panels onto their prospective surfaces of the machine. Once all are preset, I'll then cut off about 2" inches of backing paper from one of the corners and tack it down dry. I mention dry as there are a couple ways of doing an install and will address that now:
Dry install is just that, and 'wet' is when you are using a water solution, usually 1 cup of water with 1 to 2 drops if dish washing liquid in it. That helps break the surface tension of the water itself. I then load it into a spritz type spray bottle for easy application.
Once I have set a corner, I'll proceed to pull the graphic away from the panel it's being applied to, and totally wet the surface of the machine (where the panel is being mounted) as it will help to get the air worked out from behind. Nothing is water soluble, so be as liberal as you like.
I'll even wet the surface of the graphic to lessen the resistance and friction while spreading out the air/water with the squeegee tool. Always work the air/water out from the center and towards the nearest edge. If you take your time, you'll achieve excellent if not perfect results.
An imperfect installation would consist of one or both the following criteria: Wrinkles, or air/water bubbles trapped behind. However, don't fret just yet as there are tricks to addressing these minor issues.
Be sure to look through the Hall of Fame for some exciting images sent in by loyal customers. Those who do send in images will be entered into the annual giveaway, and, featured in the HoF page. Don't miss out on this great opportunity to share your machine with the world!
Clicked on the image above, will take you to a new page containing a variety of video tutorials to better help you succeed with your installation process. I highly recommend it if this is your first time.
The artist reserves full rights to update, and or, edit designs without any prior public notice or sample. Some packages may have already, or, are currently being updated with more details, innovations, new patterns or layouts to conform better to its intended application. Trust that the time invested here in the studio, is always with the full intention of generating a better product, and that you accept these modest terms when placing your order. If you have questions, please ask in advance.
I realize everyone would like to be unique, have a look all of their own, be a one of a kind, and those terms can be negotiated in advance and at a premium.
However, and in the gentlest way, should first explain that as a professional passionate artist with many years of training and experience, along with a very large investment of not only time, though hardware and software too, and that the hours dedicated into a design becomes part of inventory to make available to anyone who enjoys the art, thus, helps recover my investment over time as well.
If it appears I am quick, it is sometimes so, as for more than a decade I have built up a seemingly endless (and proprietary) master library of unique inventory and finished custom designs elements which only WCW can source from, at will.
All are mastered in large scale, for it is impossible to achieve the same visual results if working from small images which will sacrifice the clarity and integrity of a composition. Therefore, I strive for lifelike sharp and crisp edges and nothing less.
My regular custom design rate is $85.00/hr, and a project can sometimes take hours, or even a few days to master. That said, I work overtime on each creation in order to achieve the very best quality, as will be noticed when comparing my world class design inventory to that of others in the field. Quality in = quality out.
If you're wanting a custom design made up and are on a budget, I do at times negotiate terms at a lesser rate if I feel it is a worthy project.
Ready to order? Great!
Please review the following guidelines that will better help me, help you.
State the year and model that I will be working on, as well for base colors and any critical areas which might require special attention.
If you have after-market paint, panels or colors which are non factory colors, but important to the continuity of your theme, please review the color chart and take note of the coinciding code below them, as this will make it easier to convey such information.
If you have corporate sponsors and wish to have their logos embedded into the design, you must have the rights to do so. Thus, I will give the benefit of doubt that you have taken the necessary steps.
If you are requesting logos or branding which I do not currently have stock of, you will be required to provide that to me in either .EPS or .TIF format. EPS is highly recommended and preferred.
Getting new inspirational ideas after I have submitted a finished proof will cause timely delays and back up the work flow here in studio. Please be courteous and have your thoughts and ideas well ironed out before I get started on your special project. If by chance we need to discuss a hard to describe detail in the working file, we can communicate via screen share, to assist in the translation of ideas and geometry in real time.
I will not copy another artists work, as I have the skill and abilities to produce superior original art. However, if you have been inspired by something you have seen somewhere in your travels, and would like my rendition thereof, you must submit the visual reference by way of e-mail, so that I may assess the direction and time it will take take in order to create that personalized and unique piece of art.
There is no perfect color matching, however I will work as closely as possible so that the design will compliment your current color scheme.
I work with a solvent based printer. Black is black at 100% opacity, however as it fades and feathers out against a white background, the makeup of the black may show through. This I have titled Ghost rather than black and white, because it is strictly relevant to the processing and manufacturing of the black ink.
All of my designs, templates and techniques are proprietary, and not for share, resale or use by any other parties unless special arrangements have been made.
Kits and design packages are also proprietary, thus available exclusively through this web site and will not be made available to, or by, any retail outlets at this present time.
The average fee for custom design work is $300.00 plus the general cost of processing.
Changes made after 'proofing' are prorated at $85.00 per hr. All work produced remains under the copyright of the artist unless otherwise specified.
These guidelines, as well for design updates and modifications, may be updated and/or amended without prior notice, as and when deemed necessary by the art director.
The above image is linked to my color chart which is a excellent reference when communicating. Each sample is accompanied by a particular code beneath it and should be referenced when discussing details. Please note that what you see may vary from monitor to monitor, thus I do not offer exact color matches, though will use the code provided to achieve the greatest accuracy.
All packages within this sight are 'print to order' and may take up to 10 days to process pending current workloads. And there are more than a couple ways to ship packages, be it local or international. First would be Expedited Parcel through the general post office or via FedEx. Ground service is usually acceptable unless going overseas where it must be sent airmail. Ground service has been known to take anywhere from 60 to 90 days, so the options are few with regards to speed.
Here is more information you should know about each:
If shipping through post office, packages have over time been received within a few business days. However as the USPS has and is considering cutbacks and closures leading to the rumored possibility of privatization, they will not guarantee a delivery date and say to allow up to 30 days. All packages are tracked and the number issued will be provided to you once it has entered their system. Depending on the value, or destination of an order, a signature may be required to secure delivery.
With any courier service such as FedEx, the delivery is more reliable and almost always arrives within an acceptable sum of time. And as they are all brokers, they also take care of the paperwork and the collecting and remitting of duties which are about 5.8% (based on value of goods) on orders exceeding $200. They will require a daytime phone number to contact you once the parcel is set for delivery. Please be sure your mailing address is current and up to date.
Shipping rates vary pending: destination, size and weight of packaging, special handling instructions. Any and all additional costs such as priority courier service, overnight service, import duties, any and all taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are completely the buyer’s responsibility. If your parcel has arrived for delivery, and you have A) not made arrangements to receive it, B) declined delivery, C) abandoned, it may be sent back as 'return to sender' (or the like). As a result, any fees accrued will be at the buyers responsibility prior to a second attempt at shipping. If you are ordering from a foreign land, the mailing address must be provided in English and be accompanied with your telephone number. Failure to do so may create unnecessary delays. In this event, you will be contacted in order to update your information. If no follow up reply is received from you, your package will be held for 90 days.
Prints are always new and made to order, thus, as this is an extensive process, all sales are final. However, returns may be credited for exchange for another kit upon receipt and satisfactory inspection. Any items returned that are incomplete, marked, creased, scratched or damaged in any way are the returning party's responsibility to make good on. Any items that have been tampered with, such as, tracing with pounce wheel, copying with any form of scribing or marking instrument will NOT be accepted as a return for credit or exchange and returned back to you at your expense.
All print to order sales are final sales unless an agreement has been made for returning an item for exchange. To do so, you must first contact me by e-mail for guidelines and instructions before shipping. Any charges which may arise from failing to follow these instructions, will be charged back to you. Further, if it doesn't come back to me in the same perfect condition that I sent it to you, I will not accept it as a return and it will be shipped back to you at your expense. All returns are at shippers expense unless otherwise stated.
By using this website, you agree to adhere to all the terms and conditions which are clearly posted. Selections from the various categories are title specific and can be referenced by their names. If the design is in a series, there may be a code associated with it.
Various video tutorials are suggested viewing before applying your kit. HERE
They cover wet, dry and wrap application processes.
Although it takes some extra time, all kits are pre-cut to their specific shapes, and for your convenience. Check that you have received all the panels for your package and test fit your kit by using small strips of painter's tape to place all graphic panels in their respective positions prior to doing the installation.
If there are any fitting errors, it is important to notify me before using the product, and in order to rectify the problem.
If you are not confident in doing your own installation, please hire a professional.
If you or your chosen installer requires further information or assistance, please contact me.
If you are sending in parts to be 'wrapped' or templated, you must first contact me for instructions on packaging and shipping.
Those who send in images of their graphics installed will gain a position in the Hall of Fame, and will also receive the complimentary accident replacement insurance for having participated in my image rewards program. This doesn't mean if you get a scratch or a stone chip, that you will receive free panels. What it does mean, is your covered 'if' you are in an accident, have damaged a panel with a graphic on it. Replacements are at the sellers discretion and may require proof of damage.
The time limit to send in your installed graphics images is two weeks from the date of delivery and is nontransferable. Poor quality images taken by way of a dim lit or shaky cell phone, or, images that are sent in after the two week grace period will be at my discretion.

Also, take notice that I am making an effort to faze out brand names, and is a challenging task because no one else is. However, it is something that I have done for and by request of customers because once they remove the OEM graphics, the name is lost as well. I, as many others in the graphics industry, have done this respectfully and to help maintain visibility. As like others, the intention of the customer and myself is just to keep things looking good and not meant to infringe or cause harm. To Notice one, and not all, is unfair.
What they do, if any, with that information is unknown to me.
