Car Wrap Vinyl Size Calculator Guide: How much size of vinyl do I need for wrap my car?

If you're planning to wrap your car in vinyl, it's important to calculate the size of vinyl you need to buy. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you:

Step 1: Measure the Car Measure the length and width of the car to determine the total surface area that needs to be covered. You can use a tape measure or a digital measuring device to get accurate measurements. Make sure to measure all sides of the car, including the roof, hood, trunk, and doors.

*length of your vehicle x 3 (for the two sides & the top of the vehicle from front to back) + extra for bumpers and mistakes (1.5m to 3m depending on complexity of car and your skill level)

Step 2: Determine the Amount of Vinyl Needed To determine the amount of vinyl needed, you will need to use the surface area of the car that you calculated in Step 1. Vinyl is usually sold in rolls that come in different widths, so you will need to choose a roll size that is wide enough to cover the widest part of the car without leaving any gaps or seams. You can calculate the amount of vinyl needed by dividing the total surface area of the car by the width of the roll.

If the total surface area of the car is 200 square feet and the width of the vinyl roll is 5 feet, you will need 40 feet of vinyl (200/5=40).

Step 3: Add Extra for Overlap and Waste When wrapping a car, it is important to account for overlap and waste. You should add at least 10% extra vinyl to your total measurement to ensure that you have enough material to cover the entire car without running out. This extra material will also account for any mistakes or errors that may occur during the installation process.

Step 4: Calculate the Final Amount of Vinyl Needed To calculate the final amount of vinyl needed, add the extra amount from Step 3 to the amount of vinyl calculated in Step 2. For example, if you need 40 feet of vinyl for the car and you add 10% extra for overlap and waste, you will need to purchase 44 feet of vinyl (40 + 4).

For example:
2019 BMW 530i M: (4,954mm x 3) + 3m = 14.86m + 3m = 17.86m = 60ft
