If you’re looking for a way to make your car more noticeable, then an Itasha wrap is the way to go. They are an over-the-top style that, admittedly, isn’t for everyone. But if the look is something that appeals to you, we can make your custom vehicle wrap dreams come true.
What Are Itasha Wraps?
Picture a cartoon or comic book page. Now imagine that drawing as a full wrap on your car. That’s not exactly an Itasha wrap, but it gets you close. The style comes from Japanese culture and involves characters and scenes drawn in the Japanese manga style, often combined with bright colors. Itasha is a Japanese word that literally means “painful car.”
There are a couple of ways to approach these unique custom vehicle wraps. There’s the ironic approach, in which you acknowledge, tongue in cheek, that this car is a bit over-the-top while enjoying the reactions of your fellow commuters as you break up the monotony of their daily drive.
The other approach is completely genuine. A fan of the animation style, or a fan of Japanese car culture, decides to decorate their car in a way that truly brings them joy. There is nothing ironic about this approach — they truly love the look of their car.
Both mindsets are completely acceptable. That’s the great thing about cars — the only thing that matters is that you are happy with the way your car looks. And for some people, an Itasha wrap is what brings them happiness.
To get some inspiration for your Itasha wrap, you can browse some Japanese graphic novels or manga. Another option is to browse images online.
