Charlie Halpin Insists on Quality Work

ART-Charlie-2012

The old saying “Garbage In, Garbage Out” is a saying  I often think to myself  when I see a failed graphic job. Over the 25 years that I have been in the advertising and marketing industry I have seen all too often poorly designed and installed graphics. Whether it is a sign or a vehicle wrap, bad ones are out there.  I feel this is due to too many businesses cutting corners with products, manpower, principles, work ethics and attitude.  In addition to me using quality vinyl products, I offer skilled and highly trained installation services as I am a 3M Preferred Installer. I offer each client exceptional customer service and make myself available to answer any questions the client may have. I personally work on the design portion of the project, sweating the details. I draw on the knowledge I gained from working 25 years in marketing.  I ensure the right message gets built into each design, suited to a specific business. This year I upgraded the printing equipment to a Mimaki 54″ digital printer which uses Mimaki quality inks producing vibrant 4 color digital prints.  I am serious about vehicle wraps and I give my personal guaranty that you will get the most creative and highest quality wrap for your hard earned dollars. Because all we do is custom vehicle wraps,  my company strives to be the best at what we do. Let me put my experience to work for you. I am the real wrap-man. Call us now.

Certain vehicle wrap shops around the GTA are not telling you the truth when it comes to their 3M Preferred Installer status

Charlie Halpin 3M_Preferred Installer for vWrapz vehicle wraps Toronto

And if they will blatantly lie on the front page of their website, imagine the stuff they are feeding you. Basically a 3M Preferred Installer is the best in the business. It is extremely hard to become one so I do not take it lightly. There are only a few in Canada and those installers are all on a list at the 3M Canada website. There is not one person on this list who would agree with shops using the 3M Preferred brand on their site or saying they are a 3M Preferred shop when they are not. So we want to do something about it without naming names. If you follow this link to 3M you will be able to cross reference whether the shop you are about to spend a sizable amount of money with is telling you the truth.

vWrapz – custom vehicle wraps Toronto uses 3M ScotchPrint, Oracal, Avery, Hexis, and Arlon vinyl for car wraps

vWrapz uses 3M wrap vinyl, Oracal, arlon, hexis and avery custom vehicle wrap vinyl

We use any of the above high quality vinyls for your wrap. All products are comparable and we use vinyls according to the task at hand. Some vinyls are more suited to certain applications. All carry warranties. All are good. None are from China. Beware of Chinese vinyls. Chinatown vinyls are all calendered or indoor quality as there is no cast or hi-performance factories there yet. Also beware of cheesy sign shops that will bait you with the good stuff and when you turn your back they give you the cheep stuff. Stay tuned for my upcoming stories about this matter.

Vehicle Wrapping by vWrapz Inc. – ROI

330_32247057142_550777142_1275190_9367_n

CONTINUITY & ROI
Dollar for dollar today, vehicle wrapping offers the best value for advertising on the local level. A highly creative vehicle wrap can drive traffic to your website or service by standing out in the crowd and being noticed combined with a clearly displayed website address or phone number on the wrap that is part of a well thought out advertising scheme. We can create a mild or wild wrap, depending on your requirements. A vehicle wrap costs about as much as a large ad in a newspaper. Yet its on your vehicle for years. The newspaper is thrown away everyday.

Benefits of a wrap.
* Car wrap advertising reaches other qualified buyers along delivery routes
* Creates a powerful “referral” effect
* Graphics can be tailored to demographics
* A mobile showroom
* Creates a positive impression with vehicle wrap advertising
* Fade and tear resistant
* Prolongs a vehicle’s paint life

We know Smart Cars. We have wrapped dozens of the pint sized billboards. A Smart Car is the typical David and Goliath story. It may be small but it packs a mean punch in the advertising world. In the first place people notice Smart Cars without graphics. Add a well designed wrap to one and you have a fantastic marketing machine. This is what we have noticed. Of course we’ve had our hands on quite a few and driven as many. Bottom line. They turn heads. If you are trying to get your message across and want guaranteed results, just get a Smart Car and we’ll wrap it.

Rentals of Smart Cars are available from companies we know. We have put together a rental and wrap program. Call for details. So you should be able to rent a Smart Car or other vehicle from us that is wrapped for your special event. Afterward we remove the wrap and arrange for return to your or our rental company.
A new site is being built for this purpose: smartfortwowraps.com

Testimonial
Charlie, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding job that you did on my truck. The expertise and the workmanship on this design are far beyond my expectations. Anybody looking for a wrap will be sent in your direction, you can count on it. WOW! Is what I’m hearing from everyone. Everybody thinks it’s a paint job. They can’t believe that it’s a wrap. I remember telling you on our first conversation that I wanted to get the heads turning when this truck rolls by. Well you sure accomplished my request. Thank you again and keep on the good work. Happy New Year to you and Holly.
