Most of the time spent on vehicle wrapping is the development of the graphics design concept. How long this takes will depend on how much input and direction you provide as well as your response time. However, companies that offer vehicle wrapping can have concepts sent to you in a few days. After the graphic is approved, it is sent into production. This usually takes a few days. The wrap is then printed and dried, laminated and finally cut. The final stage of vehicle wrapping is the installation, this will take less than five days depending on how detailed and size of the graphic, vehicle and scheduling.
