KI Studios is a privately owned, San Diego based, design studio and vehicle wrap business with many years of experience.
Kyle Isbell is a motivated Graphic Designer and car enthusiast with over 15 years professional design and vehicle graphics experience, backed by degrees in Graphics design and Online Marketing. After managing several vehicle wrap companies in central and southern California, Kyle Isbell started KI Studios. He set the bar high by combining skills and experience in design and wrap installation with the passion for high end sport and exotic cars.
KI Studios was started as a side project and hobby. Now we have a busy 3,000 square foot installation facility in beautiful San Diego, California. At our local car wrap facility we focus on vehicle wraps, commercial wraps and clear bra installations. We design, print, laminate and install all wraps in-house. San Diego car wrap services include racing liveries, color change wraps, advertisements, window tint, and Xpel Ultimate paint protection film.
On our website we sell stripe kits for high-performance vehicles from Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren and Lotus. We ship thousands of stripe kits a year, worldwide. We offer endless possibilities for customizing your car. All KI Studios graphics kits are designed to fit and produced with only the highest quality materials available that are built to last.
Why Choose KI Studios?
Accuracy, Performance, Innovation
Don’t be fooled by cheap inaccurate knock off’s sold on eBay. KI Studios designs all of our work by hand on the actual car before moving on to render the artwork on the computer. This assures accurate fitment of stripes and vinyl graphics across curves and body lines, and paint to vinyl color matching. Inexperienced sellers on eBay or knock off websites may simply copy inaccurate screen shots of our work, and trace the low resolution photo causing improper scale and fitment, distorted lines, and mismatched colors.
As you know, the aerodynamic lines of your sports car are not flat like a computer screen. Our graphics are often designed with counter curves to compensate for the curves of your car in order to make a straight line once applied. A side view photo from the internet does not tell you that a 997 Carrera 4S body is actually 1.7″ wider than a 997 GT3, or that the emblem on a 997 Turbo moved 2.5 inches from where it is on a 996 Turbo. This comes with experience, and attention to detail.
KI Studios uses only high performance cast vinyl films by the big 3 brands, 3M, Avery, and Oracal. This not only provides the paint like look, but enables the film to stretch around curves of the vehicle without ripping, causing edge peeling, or premature fading from the sun. Inexperienced sellers on eBay or other decal sites may use cheap calendared vinyl films with short life expectancy in order to keep their cost down. In result, you end up with a vinyl that has the natural tendency to shrink and peel around the edges. When removing a cheap calendared vinyl film, the adhesive is a separate layer than the vinyl. Vinyl that leaves the adhesive behind when you attempt to remove it can result in damage to your paint.
KI Studios offers innovative designs and ideas that mix current trends with historically accurate inspirations to deliver the feel of the Porsche 911 style we all love, yet allow you to stand out and be different. Everything can be customized, and we are constantly setting new trends. This is what keeps KI Studios on top of the game.
