Ok, ok. I’m sorry. Joe Rogan didn’t say that. I did. But I think he’d agree.
One thing you can do TODAY to get more business - offer vehicle wraps and graphics. If you have never offered vehicle wraps before, start now. If you used to but you don’t any longer, try again. Become an expert. You will be doing yourself a favor by offering these value-added services to your customers.
Listen, I get it. It’s scary. There’s so much information out there, who do you trust?

We've been "Doing Graphic Stuff Right for 65 Years", so lean on us, we have comprised this easy 4 step system to ensure you’re off to a great start.
Wash the vehicle 24 hours prior to installation.
Ensure the install bay is free of dirt and debris.
Make sure the installer’s hands are free of oil, grease, and sweat.
To finish it off always use 70% isopropyl rubbing alcohol as a final rinse.
Whatever you do, DO NOT use any protectants or waxes to any part of the vehicle (tires included). Lastly, be sure with each step that you’re drying the vehicle with a lint-free towel before the cleaners evaporate.
This one is tricky. It usually comes down to what the installer prefers, everybody is different. But if you’re new to this, you need a trusty vinyl that will work for most applications - we suggest 3M’s IJ180Cv3 or the new IJ175Cv3 for printed graphics.
Don’t be afraid to try different vinyl over time and develop your own preferences. If you’re a beginner, be sure to use air-egress films and films with slideability.
Here are my bare minimum suggestions:
