A to Z of Printing: "W" is for Wrapping Unique Vehicles

Ask the man in the street what a vinyl wrap is, and they’ll probably tell you that it’s “when someone changes the color of a car or puts graphics on a car.” And while that is true, every good sign and graphics provider knows that there is so much more to be wrapped than just cars and trucks.  In this wrap showcase, we are sharing some standout wraps of alternative vehicles, beyond cars and trucks – all produced with Roland DG printers.

We hope these inspire you. If you’ve done any of your own, feel free to comment on this post or mention us on social so we can share those too.
