WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDITION ON THE VEHICLE’s PAINT SURFACE PRIOR TO THE VINYL BEING INSTALLED. IF INSTALLED ON TRAILERS WITH CAULKING, RE-CAULKING WILL BE NEEDED SINCE VINYL WILL NOT STICK TO CAULKING.
VEHICLE WALK-THRU: Wash vehicle using just using ONLY water and soap before dropping off. Even though we prep and clean the vehicle for install wax and other chemicals will prevent the vinyl to stick to the surface. Do not Wax or CLAY BAR any wax or chemicals left on the vehicle by waxing and or clay bar will result in bubbles and vinyl will not cure properly.

INSTALLATIONS: Vinyl material is a pliable plastic material that we make every effort to make look as seamless as possible, however, there may be curves, bumps, rivets, moldings, and deep-channeled curves that the vinyl will not be able to conform to. In some cases, relief cuts need to be made or patches need to be installed to cover certain areas. Stretching will result in some shrinkage as it attempts to return to its original form/dimensions. As it shrinks, some minor tenting and lifting does occur and will be addressed if necessary in the 90 day period. All vinyl material needs to be applied to a “like new” vehicle finish for the best results. There must be an excellent bod of the paint and its finish to the vehicle substrate. Any rust, bubbling, caulking, scratches, dents, or other damage will be visible through the film, and such surface imperfections may damage the film or cause the film to fail prematurely. Areas repaired with body filer must be sanded, epoxy primed, and finished with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) paint or clear coat. Also, any areas with Caulking need to be re-caulked over the installed vinyl. Any recently applied finish must be fully cured for a minimum of 30 days prior to the film being applied.
3rd Party installations: We are only responsible for the installation. Wrap vinyl must be 3m, Avery or good quality air release wrap vinyl. We are not liable for the vinyl material, the print or missing print material. We are not liable for the paint condition of the vehicle when installing. All vinyl material needs to be applied to a “like new” vehicle finish for the best results. Any rust, bubbling, scratches, dents, or other damage will be visible through the film, and such surface imperfections may damage the film or cause the film to fail prematurely. Any recently applied finish must be fully cured for a minimum of 30 days prior to the film being applied.
Installers use a heat gun to stretch and reposition the vinyl and a squeegee to eliminate imperfections. It’s important to note that installers rely on sharp razors to manipulate the vinyl and remove excess material around door handles and crevices. Even with the expert installers, there’s some potential for minor nicks and scratches to the surface. Southern Style Graphics will not be held liable.
ONCE INSTALLED VINYL MATERIAL IS INTENDED TO BE VIEWED FROM A DISTANCE OF SIX (6) FEET FROM THE VEHICLE.
Installation time is based upon many factors including but not limited to, film selected, curing time, places where vinyl material is being installed, size of the vehicle, the complexity of installation areas, and any unforeseen circumstances that may arise. We will make every effort to give reasonable time frames for installation but reserve the right to change them at any time for any reason.
