Guitar Wrap Requirements
Guitar wraps consist of a thin substrate which is printed on and is then applied to the guitar body. The application process can be tricky, especially when wrapping around contours of a guitar body so we recommend shipping out your guitar (or just the body, if possible) to our trained technicians. As fellow musicians, we handle your guitar with pride and care. Once the wrap is placed, we will securely ship your guitar back out to you.
Artwork for guitar wraps can be any color in the 4 color spectrum. Metallic or Foils can be added as a 5th color for an extra charge (please contact us directly for details). Guitar wraps can be applied to most guitars. Be sure to specify the type of guitar body. In order to insure that your new guitar wrap stands the test of time, we recommend the guitar be sprayed with a clear coat to protect it against daily wear and tear (which is an additional charge). With your guitar and your approved artwork in our hands the transformation begins. Preferable artwork should be as high quality as possible. Vector artwork, such as Illustrator or Freehand is best. If you have a Photoshop file, 300 dpi at 100% size is best. Lower quality files (i.e. anything lower than 300 dpi) can be used, but will affect the final look of your guitar. We recommend no lower than 150 dpi at 100% size. Here are a few recommended artwork sizes for popular guitar styles. Strat: 14” x 19” Tele: 14” x 16”Les Paul: 13” x 18.5” J-Bass: 14.5” x 22” P-Bass: 14” x 20”. It is best to measure your guitar by its longest and highest point. We recommend at least a one inch bleed in order to wrap the side contour properly.
Info for Sending Artwork
Once your artwork is set up to the specs described above, send it to our design team at Scary Creative. If the artwork file is smaller than 5 MB, e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. or include a data disc of your files when you ship the guitar. Ship to Scary Creative, 7955 Haskell Ave #4, Van Nuys, CA 91406.
We will include a mock up (a digital file that displays your artwork on the guitar) for an approval before we start the guitar wrap project.
