Are You a "Petrol Head"?

by Leanne Arnold on December 19, 2018  in Category_Blog ArticlesCategory_Vinyl Pinstriping

Auto-racing is among some of the most popular sports in the US, which adds to the already-thriving car culture and expansion of “Petrol Heads.” A Petrol Head, otherwise known as a car enthusiast, spends a lot of time, effort and money customizing and polishing-up their vehicle. If you have one of these car-lovers in your life, it’s a safe bet to choose a car-related gift for holidays and special occasions, but if you’re not an enthusiast yourself, that task can seem daunting. Don’t be afraid to seek out a little help! Here are some ideas to get your creative shopping juices flowing.


old carCar Tech: Both Functional and Fun
Some of the coolest modern-day car accessories are car tech items. Innovative features that soup up the inside and outside of a vehicle, be it practical or just plain cool, can always be found on any enthusiast’s wish list. Consider some accessories that enhance their in-car music, commuting in general (like GPS systems and mounts), or even dash cams and accessories to help with safer driving.

 

Customizing and Detailing The inside of the car isn’t the only focus of car fans; oftentimes, the outside of the vehicle is just as, if not more, important that the interior. From simple things, like quality wax and buffers, to more elaborate like pinstriping, there’s something to please everyone that likes looking chic in their vehicle.

If you know your friend or loved one frequents the car wash for detailed cleaning, or they can be found on warm days doing the cleaning themselves, consider a similar genre for gifts. Things like wash mitts, special car shampoos, microfiber cloths for drying, and spray wax are all great options.

If they’ve been especially good this year, consider putting together a gift basket of several detailing items. For the enthusiast that loves displaying their personality, customized vinyl decals are simple yet fun gift options. Custom wheel covers and vanity plates are also sure to please.

If you really want to spoil someone, consider paint customizing options, like pinstriping, and gift them a certificate for the service. No matter your budget, there really is an option for everyone that any car lover will be sure to appreciate. Showing someone how much you care doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, either. Put some real thought into your gift, and no matter the monetary cost, it will show the recipient that you know them, and that they’re important- and that’s what they truly want in a present.

This is your place for vinyl graphics!

Custom Vinyl Graphics is fantastic! This is not my first dealing with them so I can tell you the positive service is consistent. They helped me with my initial designs and the alterations when I needed another order. They kept me in the loop during the whole process. They reminded me to double check my sizing attuned to the adage “Measure twice, cut once.” Everything was checked with me for approve before going to the printer. What you approve is exactly what you receive. There is no guessing about what is in the package when you receive it. Their representatives are knowledgeable, polite and after dealing with me, have the patience of Mom Teresa. Pricing is comparable to other places I’ve dealt with, however, the quality of service and end result put Custom Vinyl Graphics to the top of my list. So much so, that I asked that they add their logo to my design so I can advertise for them.

Great Decal

Fit perfect and looks great, high quality product!

Awesome patriotic car vinyl decal for an amazing looking car!

Flame Rip Checkered Flag

The quality is good and easy to install but I got the wrong order. I ordered the gray flame and got the red flame instead. Other then that it’s good.

Thank you for your honest review. I wish you would have contacted us before you applied the decals... we could've sent you the grey ones. I apologize for the error.

Wonderful Product

Great customer service! I received much assistance with my design. Only downside was shipping. A shipping tube verses the USPS carton would be a great improvement. Removing creases from the product because of shipping was troublesome. I am still quite happy with finished results.

Thank you for your review. The decal looks amazing!

Very Unsatisfied

Terrible communication practices

To be fair, we sent you a total of 15 replies to your inquiries. Our communication with you was constant and timely. You just hoped that we had the ability to speak via phone. To be honest, I wish we were big enough of a company to offer that as well but we are a small family business. You are entitled to your opinion but we are proud of the product we produced for you.
