    so what is sharpie?

    the artwork looks good by the way.

    I assume you go for matt because the finish of gloss vinyl can pick up swirls?

    or is it because it looks cool?

    adios
    I'm loving it

    No, no, no
    It is not connected to sharpie at all. It's black and white picture converted to photoshop brush (for quality reasons) then printed on wrapping vinyl (3M IJ380) and laminated with designated clear vinyl.
    Then it has been wrapped by myself as I've got my own vehicle wrapping business.

    I went for matt black nearly 2 years ago as it was in fashion at the time. Actually I'm more than happy because I don't have to spend time for polishing
    The reason why i'm going for matt white this time it's very simple - I like it.
    Black carbon fibre roof will stay so it will stand out more than with black body.

    Yes, the pictures are on my facebook page (my company page) and I invite everyone to have a look as it's few more jobs on there.

    Agreed some bloody good work, looks a nightmare to do all the fiddly bits with loads of curves.

    i'd go for matt black from door handle height up and the graphic below,

    you know your business a hell of a lot better than me but as a prospective customer, i would want to be able to look at what you can do for me, some customers might want something quite intricate, others may want a full single colour wrap so they can see your car as a visual reference.



    i like the look of the back end personally and think the above idea would look pretty cool!
