What makes DeSoto different than other companies that provide vehicle wraps?


We take your band to the next level.

Our owner's resume. No one in the wrap industry has the experience of our owner Sergio DeSoto. After owning a very successful wrap business for nearly a decade, Sergio has held Vice President of Marketing and Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the two largest companies in the wrap industry. He has written and implemented the nation's leading certification programs and the industry's leading design software.

We do not take shortcuts.

A vehicle wrap is an investment in your company's growth, and while many shops need to do as many wraps as possible to make their overhead, we take a different approach. Every wrap we do garners the attention it needs to be a useful marketing piece. Remember, a good wrap will make your phone ring, and a bad one is just a big sticker. We have the best color in Arizona. A wrap is more than just printed vinyl, and many people can print on and install vehicle wrap film. We have painstakingly made sure that our process and equipment's details provide you with the best quality design and print in the valley. All of our computers, scanners, proofing printers, and production printers are Gracol G7 qualified. Meaning, our eight-color production printers matches our eight color proofing printer, providing you with the most extensive color gamut in town. We use only the best printers in our facility, which are all made by Epson, the world leader in color reproduction.

What kind of film do you use for vehicle wraps?


The best one for the project.

We use the appropriate film for your installation—several films made by several manufacturers, not all suit the same bill. For example, 3M manufactures a film for Sprinter vans and complex compound surfaces. At the same time, other manufacturers have superior options for the project. We pick the best one, period.

What makes your vehicle wraps different from your competitors?


Effective branding

We take the time to ensure that you are getting a vehicle wrap that will relay your message and get results. This involves a great deal of investigative research on our part to provide you with the best vehicle wrap in your category and a wrap that stands out.

For example, if you are a painter, we want to make sure that not only your wrap stands out amongst other vehicle wraps, but more importantly, it stands out amongst other painters! Our wraps get results, and this can only be done by spending the time learning about you, your company, and your competitors.

Tell me about the creative process?


Design matters

We go through a vetting process with every client. Meaning we spend as much time as it takes to understand you, your vehicle's function, your business, and your competitors. Remember, not only are we going to make your vehicle stand out in your field, but we will also make your vehicle stand out amongst other vehicle wraps.

The creative process can be as simple or complex as you would like. We can use your existing art if it qualifies for large format reproduction or go as far as using a professional photographer to get the necessary images needed to create the most stunning wrap imaginable. We use control methods to control the time we spend on your wrap, guaranteeing that you are only charged for the time we spend and not a second more. We provide every client with a report of actual time spent via a program that tracks exact design time. This allows for complete transparency with our clients.

Tell me about the proofing process?

how you see the creative

We employ two methods of proofing depending on your preference and the level of color accuracy needed to provide you with the best result.  Many clients prefer our online proofing done via GoVisual; this is a digital collaboration space that allows our clients to notate changes and see proofs almost instantly.

Using GoVisual, we can provide you with a semi-accurate color scheme to get your comps approved quickly. For our more exacting clients, we offer hard proofing via our Epson 4880 proofing printer. We can print out a 99.9% accurate color proof and have it sent over to your facility the same day. This allows for the most precise proofing available.

Tell me about the install process?

The finishing touch

EVERY vehicle we wrap gets premier treatment. We remove all obstacles that will impede your wrap's appearance and longevity. This is often an upgrade to most providers, but we feel that you cannot get a quality install without this process, so we do it to every vehicle. EVERY vehicle receives a full detail.

We want you to feel like you are picking up a new vehicle and want you to be excited about your new wrap. We hand detail the interior and exterior of every vehicle we wrap. This allows for proper preparation and provides you with a fresh start on your marketing adventure. We typically need your vehicle for 2.5 days; vehicles are dropped off the evening before the detail and installation. We do not rush our installations; therefore, we may need to keep your vehicle for an additional day. We will schedule your vehicle for install within two days of the final design approval.

Tell me about the warranty

100%

We honor all manufacturer's warranties on the films we install. However, it is key that whatever wrap provider you use ensures that the proper warranty paperwork is filled out and the tracking numbers on the material they use are properly notated on your invoice. Failure to provide you with an inspection form and these tracking numbers will result in the manufacturer voiding your warranty.
