Q: How long do vinyl graphics last?
A: KI Studios uses only the highest quality, high performance grade cast vinyl films by reputable brands like 3M, Avery, and Oracal. Brands depending on the color available that best matches your paint or desire. All films are rated with an outdoor durability of over 6 years, and up to 11 depending on the color.
Q: Can I wax over vinyl?
A: Yes! Waxing over vinyl will help protect it from the sun and extend it’s life just like it does your paint. We recommend hand washing and waxing only, using a liquid wax in order to avoid that annoying white build up on the edges of the vinyl. Spray detailer works great as well.
Q: How long should I wait before washing the car after applying fresh graphics?
A: Wash the car before applying graphics! I recommend allowing the car to sit outside for one full sunny day before it’s first wash.
Q: What water solution should I use when wet applying graphics?
A: There are all sorts of recipes and application fluid products out there. After my 11 years of install experience, I have come to the conclusion that plain old water is the best! For a large wet application you may add a single drop of soap to your spray bottle in order to make the application more forgiving. Take extra care in removing the transfer tape when using a drop of soap as it will slow the drying process and initial stick of the vinyl. All the KI Studios demonstration videos are done with plain water.

Q: Can vinyl graphics be removed?
A: Yes! We recommend using a clothes steamer to soften the vinyl, making the removal a whole lot easier and really cut back on the amount of adhesive left behind, if any. These are about 50 dollars at many local stores. See the vinyl removal video here: http://youtu.be/o0-YoXEH8gU
