• Paintwork on all automotive vehicles fades and changes over time due to the natural UV light of the sun.   Areas covered by vinyl are less likely to have this happen and therefore may not match the car’s colour after they are removed. 

• Vinyl protects the paint lacquer underneath from micro abrasion and traffic films therefore again after removal there may be a permanent “ghosting” of the vinyl in the lacquer. 

• Whilst every care is taken during installation to avoid cutting any vinyls on your vehicle there are certain instances where this is unavoidable. We will consult you on fitting day of these areas and advise of the best solutions. You accept that should this have to occur (e.g the radius inside the wheel arches) that Squid Ink Design is not liable for any damage to the paintwork. 

• 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. Also we do not advise using non-removable vinyl on a vehicles surface. 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. 

• Vinyl should not be steam cleaned, harsh abrasives and strong chemicals can damage vinyl causing it to fail. Where a customer has been subjecting the installed vinyl to these conditions Squid Ink Design will take no responsibility for the failure of the damage. 

• The vinyl will not be fully cured for 48 hours after installation therefore please do not wash the vehicle for a minimum of 48 hours post installation. 

• Vinyl as with all plastics does get damaged by UV light. Over time the colour will fade. Typically vinyls should last 5 years (all of our products are rated by their manufacturers for a minimum of 5 years and most are rated to 8 years) however this is dependant on weather conditions, exposure to UV light and many other factors. Typically Squid Ink Design will guarantee our work for 3 years unless you have opted for budget products not recommended by us. 

• We cannot accept responsibility for consequential damages or loss of any kind resulting from the sale, installation, or delivery of our wrap products. 

• Any verbal order will be accepted, but in the absence of any supportive documentation, Squid Ink Design will not be responsible for any verbal mistakes. Everything must be in writing. 

• All work undertaken is under the condition that a complete, high-resolution file is supplied, complete with a color proof, pantone references and purchase order with the exact specification. Where artwork is supplied by the client, it is the responsibility of the client to ensure the artwork is in a “print ready” format. It is the responsibility of the client’s designer to check the dimensions and layout of the actual vehicle(s). 

• Proofs are created on a flat surface and viewed at a relatively tiny size on computer screens and 8 inch 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. 

• Where Squid Ink Design provides the artwork, it is essential the client fully checks the final proof with the actual vehicle to check for any variations (i.e. style of lights, positioning of number plates and other major (no. of doors) or minor variations. 

• The accuracy of the templates provided has a margin of error of a few inches. It is recommended that designers design vehicle wraps with this in mind, avoiding the extreme edges of the wrap with vital information. Measurement of the vehicle is always recommended.  

• It is the responsibility of the client to provide or purchase quality, high resolution pictures for large format printing. Squid Ink Design will not be held responsible for low resolution images provided by the client for printing. 

• It is not reasonable to expect an inkjet printed vinyl wrap to cover and look exactly like paint or in all the same places look exactly the same. • A piece of vinyl has limits and can only stretch so much before it changes color. 

• In many cases, a relief cut has to be made into the vinyl that will reveal a small amount of the original vehicles paint color under the vinyl. 

• In some cases a patch needs to be installed to conceal the vehicle’s original color. It is the only option. 

• Areas under door handles, mirrors, behind gas caps, and inside door frames will not be wrapped unless discussed previously and an additinal fee may be charged 

• 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. It has more to do with material limitations and not install quality. 

• Some vehicles have large body indents and since we cannot stretch the vinyl more than 20% we are forced to cut the vinyl and cover only the areas that are viewed from a straight-on view of the vehicle. 

• Areas around door handles, mirrors, door locks, wiper motors, antenna, roof racks, etc. are very difficult to make look perfect, and it is very common to cut the vinyl around these areas and piece in the extra vinyl to cover the extra body areas that the vinyl could not cover. 

• Due to the fact that a two dimensional print is being applied to a three dimensional vehicle and due to the minor variances in the accuracy of the templates. The positioning of a vehicle wrap can vary from the proof by several inches throughout the entire length of a vehicle wrap. This is normal and wraps need to be designed with this in mind. 

• You can expect that the vinyl could have small wrinkles and bubbles and minor imperfections. You need to understand that this is not paint. If you expect a perfect vehicle graphic that is flawless, then an airbrush paint job is the best way to proceed. 

• When Squid Ink Design receives original logos or art we will not modify the colour or design, because it may cause unacceptable errors. Squid Ink Design will not be held responsible for any design layouts provided by the client. All original art must come to Squid ink design ready to print. There will be a design fee for any changes made to client supplied art or layout. Design fee is £40.00 per hour. 

• A compound curve is a part of the vehicle that has two surfaces going in two different directions, all compound curves require us to stretch the vinyl or piece in the vinyl to cover these areas. This can sometimes cause problems with the graphics. To prevent these problems, it is best to use a generic graphic background in these areas. 

• 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. It is the responsibility of the vehicle owner to bring in a vehicle that is ready to be wrapped. Extreme curves and deep pockets may exceed the limits of how far the material can stretch. Again this is not paint it is a special pressure sensitive vinyl material. Vehicles are not at exact right angle curves. They maintain lines that are not 100% parallel to the ground. Due to this fact the graphics that are 2D printed graphics they will not be at the exact same angle of the vehicle lines once the wrap is installed onto the 3D vehicle surface. 

• Due to the limitations and the sensitivity of the various substrates, it is impossible to reproduce all colors accurately. Therefore, in the absence of a representative from your company to select the appropriate colour sample, reproduction will be at our discretion. 

• All quotations are valid for 30 days. 

• Payment terms: 50% deposit with the order confirmation, prior to printing, with the balance to be paid prior to the release of the items.

• Where we agree that items are released without payment (e.g shop signage) the client agrees to make payment within 15 days. Any invoice not paid within 15 days of completion of work are subject to a 4.5% fee per month or part of month and this cost will be added to the original invoice.

• Vehicles must be delivered to our location clean and free from grease and oil, and free from existing graphics. A cleaning charge of £40.00 may be applied if the vehicles are not in a satisfactory clean condition. 

• In the event that Squid Ink Design is asked to remove pre-installed vinyl, Squid Ink Design will make every effort to remove the existing vinyl but will not be held responsible for any damage that may occur to the surface of the painted vehicle during removal. This is due to the fact that we cannot guarantee the installer checked the paintwork was sound prior to installation of the original vinyl.

• When we wrap over existing vinyl strips or letters, the new wrap is so thin on top that there will be evidence that there is old vinyl underneath the new vinyl. 

• It is standard procedure in our industry to wrap over existing graphics when it can not be removed using conventional methods. Squid Ink Design will not be held responsible in anyway if the client is not happy because the existing graphics were not able to be removed using conventional methods of removal. 

• Squid Ink Design does NOT engage in unconventional methods of vinyl graphics removal because it may damage the surface of the clients vehicle. Unconventional methods include, cutting or scraping of the vehicle surface or the use of harsh chemicals that may damage the vehicles painted surface. 

• If we are installing at the client’s nominated location, suitable conditions must exist. Vehicles need to be indoors, in a clean, dust free temperature controlled environment, with a power supply, large tables and good quality lighting. With a minimum of 5 feet working space around the entire vehicle. If in the opinion of the senior installer on site, conditions are not suitable for the a high quality install of the wrap / graphics the vehicle will be required to go to one of our nominated install location.
