So here is the thing about paints and wraps. Paint is MUCH more expensive, but if properly cared for it can last literal decades longer than a vinyl wrap. Costs are going up across the board, but auto paints have been steady climbing over the past 5 years or so, even before the inflation uptick of recent days. Lots more EPA regulations, business regulations, and higher taxes all help those costs rise. $3,000-5,000 is a pretty average cost for a full size van paint job these days depending on your location and paint.
