About Sharq Skinz Graphic Wraps
At Sharq Skinz, we talk daily to customers who dream of having head turning graphics on their vehicles, boats, ATV’s and Motorcycles that express their individuality. That is why our goal is to assist you in making that vision a reality. Our design team will create custom graphics that will exhibit your individual style and personal tastes. Differentiate yourself whether your rolling down the highway, pinning it across the desert or carving up the open water.
While design drives us, customer satisfaction is what has kept us in business for over three decades. We strive for one hundred percent customer satisfaction, and do whatever it takes to keep our customers coming back. We achieve this by listening to our clients and providing various design options for them…not just the designs we think are best. We treat our customers like family, and it’s that attitude that keeps our clients coming back. Don’t just take our word for it, ask us for a reference…we’d be happy to make the connection.
Sharq Skinz provides a one-stop shop from concept to design all the way through the printing and installation process. Our courteous staff will work collaboratively with you to conceptualize your vision. Once the concept is captured, we’ll transform your vehicle or vessel using the highest quality materials available. With locations in Southern California, Northern California and Lake Havasu, Arizona we have a foundation that differentiates us from our competitors. Whether your needs center around the delivery of a marketing message, personalizing a vehicle or vessel or simply upgrading your look with customized graphics, Sharq Skinz and Dimensional Graphix ares here to help. Our installation centers use techniques that alleviate costly prep work helping us deliver compelling wraps at a fraction of the cost of traditional paint. Once created Sharq Skinz can duplicate your graphic vision on other vehicles and/or vessels. Automobiles, Trucks, Tow Rigs, Motorcycles, ATV’s, Personal Watercraft and even Helicopters can all be similarly “wrapped” to provide a consistent image. And since the price of wrapping is low, it is cost effective to change out your graphics every few years to realize a completely new look.
