DESIGN AND INSTALLATION FAQ
Design, Payments & Production Process: 50% deposit is due upon acceptance of Estimate. Because we want to deliver the highest quality design and service, we ask for a two week design time. During this time, you may receive emails and questions regarding colors and design preferences. Upon completion we will email you the design for your review. We hope that you love it on the first try, but we know that you might want a change or two, so we include up to two revisions in the estimated cost. After that we do as for a small fee of $75 per hour for additional design billed in 1/2 hour increments. We believe that this is not the normal and we will work with you for the best options.
Estimates are good faith estimates based on job specification information provided by the client and current material costs. Pricing and schedule are subject to change upon receipt of artwork and approval of estimate. Pricing is good for 30 days from the date of the quote and does not include packaging or shipping charges unless specified.
After you have completed the artwork design approval process, we will give you an estimated time of production and schedule pick up or installation, depending on your project. The full balance is due at the time of this scheduling.
DELIVERY & PICKUP: if we are not installing, we prefer the client to pick up their own jobs. We will gladly ship your project for a nominal shipping fee.

Vehicle Wrap: Additional Terms, Conditions and Warranty Disclaimer: INSTALLATIONS: Red Dirt Graphics only guarantees final prints that are designed and set up by Red Dirt Graphics. Red Dirt Graphics reserves the right to VOID the warranty on any same day print and install jobs or any Rush Jobs. Red Dirt Graphics disclaims all warranties on buses, planes, trains, RVs, custom vehicles and vehicles with OEM paint that is more 5 years old. If we are asked to cover existing vinyl decals, we cannot be liable for any damage caused during the installation or removal process to these decals.
We want you to love your design and project. Because in vinyl, there may be extreme curves, deep channels and moldings on the vehicle that the vinyl will not be able to conform to, in some small areas you will see evidence of the original color of the vehicle. These may be small areas such as around door handles and the edges of the lights on the vehicles. A vehicle wrap is made by applying 52 inch vertical panels of vinyl. There will be 1 inch seams where the panels meet. On a complex design with many matching points, Red Dirt Graphics cannot guarantee that the graphics will match 100% alignment due to extreme complex curves on the vehicle.Proofs are created on a flat surface and viewed at a relatively tiny size on computer screens and printed paper. In cases of curves, handles, deep grooves, rubber moldings/trim, on-the-spot adjustments may be made by the installer to assure maximum readability or alignment. In many cases there are slight differences between the printed flat paper proof and the 3 dimensional curved vehicle wrap. This can vary up to several inches. This is normal.
If we wrap extreme curved surfaces such as mirrors and bumpers they may reveal the original paint color at the tight edges of the wrap. Red Dirt Graphics cannot warranty those areas with extreme curves. It is the sole risk of the client if they choose wrap mirrors or other very tight curves. Red Dirt Graphics will make the client aware of these areas before we begin the design.
Wraps are self-adhesive vinyl that will only adhere well to catalyzed vehicle paint and glass. Poor surface paint or clear coats will not allow the vinyl adhesive to stick properly and the adhesive may fail. We ask that the vehicle owner bring the vehicle in ready to install the vinyl.
Red Dirt Graphics will not be held responsible for any damage, void of vehicle warranty or anything caused through the application of the vinyl products. Red Dirt Graphics is not liable if during the installation of a wrap the clear coat of the car begins to peel off. Original painted vehicles should not have any problems with the clear coat peeling off.
The application process in many cases takes no longer than a day or two for full wraps and partial wraps can be done within one day. Red Dirt Graphics reserves the right to take an additional day for any issues that may arise during the install.
The vinyl that is applied to original vehicle paint is warranted against adhesive failure and image quality for up to 4 years. The window perforated material is warranted for up to 1 years. Red Dirt Graphics does not warranty any material that we do not install.
REMOVALS: We ask that all vehicles come to the installation process free of any decals, stickers and materials. In the event that you are unable to do this, please let us know during the scheduling process so we schedule the appropriate amount of time. Removal is billed at $75 per hour in 1/2 increments. Red Dirt Graphics will not be responsible for any paint, clear coat, or existing striping damage when we do a removal. In the event this is not communicated and the removal will take longer than 1 hour, Red Dirt Graphics reserve the right to reschedule the installation project.
We cannot be responsible for damage to paintwork when the vinyl is removed, and would not advise application on a re-sprayed surface, or poor quality/rusted paintwork. Please note, our experience shows that removal of vinyl designed for vehicle wraps, from good quality, factory original paintwork, will not damage the paintwork. However, it is the duty and responsibility of the owner of the vehicles to ensure suitability of the existing surface before it is wrapped.
WARRANTY & MATERIALS: Red Dirt Graphics offers a one-year warranty on the installation. No warranty on horizontal direct sun exposure such as hoods, roofs, and/or deck lids. We recommend hand washing only. Avoid high pressure, power washing and be careful never to use an ice scraper on window graphics. Also avoid harsh chemicals of any kind as they can deteriorate the laminate on the vinyl adhesive. Sweeping or brushing off the windows with a soft broom and the use of a rear defroster will not damage your window wrap. Please wait at least 3 weeks before washing your vehicle once applied.
