What are wrap kits?

Riveting_Wraps_Vehicle_Wrap_Kits_Seattle_WA.jpgWrap kit is the term used to describe a package that includes all the printed pieces of vinyl, instructions and other information required for a complete vehicle wrap.  (Kitting is the term used to describe the process of creating these kits - clever, right?!)  As a client with a fleet of vehicles in multiple locations, you may never see a kit, but the quality of those kits and the timing of their delivery will have a big impact on the quality of your fleet graphics and minimizing the time your fleet vehicles are out of service. 

Getting the Best Wraps for Your Multi-Location Fleet

As much as we love wrapping vehicles, not all wraps can take place in our studio. Sometimes we have responsibility for wrapping multiple vehicles across multiple states. Easy enough for any one to understand that it would be prohibitively expensive to bring all the vehicles to our Bellevue, WA wrap facility. Instead, we print and laminate all the graphics, trim and label them, prepare and print installation instructions and "kit" them up and ship them to our trusted installation affiliates across the country. The process of putting this all together is called kitting.
