Fleet managers and individuals who know about vehicle wraps will ask installation shops if they are certified for the 3M™ MCS™ warranty. What is the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty and why should you care?
3M™ is a manufacturer of vehicle wrap materials. Their products carry a basic warranty which warrants against the raw material arriving with no physical damage, no visual or adhesive defects, and against anything that affects the functionality of their adhesive-backed graphic film.
The 3M™ MCS™ Warranty goes a few steps above the basic warranty and protects you for virtually any application, assuming 3M™ finished graphics are made with all 3M™ graphics and components.
The company specifies coverage for Opaque Colored Films, Colored/Textured Wrap Films, Illuminated Sign Films & Substrates, Printed Finished Graphics, and Screen Print Films & Inks.
Depending on the applications and circumstances, coverage includes an extended warranty for legibility, Horizontal Warranty, coverage for channel letters, monument signs, wall signs and more, screen print films, digital films, and more. It is fairly comprehensive coverage and you should call a certified installation company to inquire about warranty coverage for your specific project.
For you, managing or owning a branded fleet of vehicles, or an individual looking for a vehicle wrap, working with a “graphics manufacturer” – how 3M™ refers to vehicle wrap designers, producers, and installers, among other subsets of the industry – who has this 3M™ MCS™ Warranty recognition, provides assurance of the company’s ability to produce graphics covered by the warranty.
When you are investing a few thousand dollars on mobile marketing via a vehicle wrap, having this extra assurance via an enhanced warranty will mean peace-of-mind that you are well-covered in your marketing investment.
So when choosing who to work with for your next vehicle wrap project, be sure to ask if they are certified for the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty.
We at G-Force Signs & Graphics carry the certification and our clients appreciate the extra coverage available to them.
Below is an example of what the certificate from 3M™ looks like.
