Beaver Stripes went with Universal Products for a few reasons, but we stay with them for may more. Besides their history, along with ours, their quality has been maintained and improved over the years. Giving the professional Installer, along with the "weekend car buff" the confidence they are installing a great product. We could go into details about the different qualities of vinyl striping available, but we will leave that to the manufactures.

"Our premium grade TFX Professional Striping system was developed exclusively for use in the automotive market. A special adhesive was developed specifically to make it possible to reposition the tape without breaking it or leaving an adhesive residue. It immediately gained popularity and recognition among professional restylers, and now stands alone in the marketplace as the benchmark for all other brands. A full color spectrum is available in both opaques and metallics." Courtesy of Universal Products.

We do offer 3M, and others, but our most popular has got to be the Universal TFX tape. We also carry Truck and Van specialty tape, made to match the popular pick-ups and vans of the 70's through the 90's. If you need to match a stripe kit, contact us, there is good chance of us finding you, or creating a match!

TFX Pro Stripes from Universal Products

 

Universal Products

Just for your information, most automotive suppliers, refer to the size of pinstripes of the overall size. For example a 3/16 would be a strip set of 1/16 color, 1/16 open, 1/16 color. Most of the stripes come in 50 or 150 foot rolls. As a supplier, we do not sell by the foot. Most shops will keep their stripes in a cooled storage environment, keeping away from heat. This is why we keep ours in the air conditioned comfort of an office environment. Along with all of our graphic kits.

Keep in mind if you are looking for individual stripes of say 1/8" you can use the multiple size configurations above, removing the second stripe (while you are removing the clear masking) to achieve the single stripe size you desire. Also available is cutting to size, while you wait, ask us for details.

Hand Painted Striping & Graphics
Universal Products Vinyl

Universal Products Vinyl Products Specifications

* Exterior durability is based on Proper Installation and Vertical Exposure, Normal Care and Non Commercial Vehicle application. (Taking into consideration the Arizona Climate and Sun Intensity on vehicles)               

** Exterior durability is based on Proper Installation and Vertical exposure, also considering the heavy duty cleaners and abuse commercial vehicles take on.

Universal Products Endura Vinyl

*** Any Horizontal Application of products such as Vehicle Hood, Roof or Deck Lid, is considered non warrantable (Except for Endura Products) This also applies to Vehicle Wraps.

Please note that Beaver Stripes will warrant any product we sell and install for the Manufacture's warranty period, but are basing the durability lengths below based on the worse case scenario. We have seen vehicles that are well maintained last well beyond Universal Products Durability statement. But we have also had to try and remove cooked metallic graphics that others have done, in less than 2 years of life... Along with factory graphics on RV's that are less than 5 years old... So be careful of the products you are comparing ours to.. Do they have the Vinyl Durability records?

Yes, Beaver Stripes would love to be able offer the Life Time Warranty on Vinyl, but sit down and face reality... Consider this, does a car company offer a lifetime warranty on their finish? The finish depends mostly on the care of the vehicle, it can last 20+ years. We have seen vehicles with graphics on them for 10+ Years. We have also seen graphics on a vehicle less than 5 years old, where the graphics are fried!, So is the finish on the vehicle. Mostly you will find these early to grave graphics on RV's and Toy Haulers. Vehicles that get used for fun, but neglected when it comes to care of the finish. Also take into consideration of the storage of these "Toys", try to shade from the harsh west side direct sun, along with the tires! (not many think about the rubber, much less the vinyl? )

Anyway, when considering vinyl graphics on your vehicle, take into consideration of the care of the vehicle involved. Say it's your normal everyday driver, keep away from putting graphics on the hood, roof, deck lid and bumpers. Keep them more on the sides. Then again lets say you have a cool ride that you keep garaged, and drive every once in a while. Then you are more than welcome to come up with any idea and graphic design, knowing they will last for many years. Either way care for the finish of the vehicle in a good way and the graphics will last allot longer.

As for the RV's and Toy Haulers, we recommend having the unit detailed and waxed at least once a year, twice a year is better. This also goes for boats and any other outdoor use vehicle. Think about the cost factor, twice a year detail about $400 a year and have the graphics last 7-8 years at least. No annual detail, after 3-4 years, graphics replacement on a 28-34' RV (rough estimate to remove and replace) $2100-$2500.

Not that we don't want your business, we would rather have your "Fun" business personalizing or adding to your toys. Take care of the finish and the vinyl will last longer.
