Our commitment to our clients is the foundation of Hero Wraps, our team is constantly striving represent your brand as a HERO..
Founded in 2013 by Jay Gonzalez with no money or knowledge on how to start a business from scratch. This was an endeavor that few people take. The idea of starting a business out of his home garage was crazy! All he needed to start helping other small business owners in Southern California was a Squeegee, Blade, and wrap material to kick start his passion to help others. With over 10 years of experience in the printing and sign industry Artisan Graphics and Wraps was born on July 1, 2013 in Anaheim, California. Jay and his team of installers took their skills to the streets and offered vehicle wrap installations, wall wrap installations, window graphic installation, and large format printing services.
Yes, our business started out of a home garage just like most other entrepreneurs who start their business. In our first couple of years we provided mobile installation services, fabrication, and designed graphics or prints from home. This drove our capital to be able to expand after the first 2 years and Artisan Graphics and Wraps moved into our first location in Brea. Our new location in 2015 allowed our growth potential to continue rising as we built a trust and confidence with our current clients. The ability to maintain a high standard of business ethics and provide professional installation or printing services allowed us to retain our current clients and gave our business referrals to other companies in the industry. In 2016 we moved to Placentia and expanded our operations by adding more large format printing equipment and a larger warehouse space to accommodate larger vehicles for trailer wraps, boat wraps, food truck wraps and bus wraps! Our growth has been a true blessing and our clients’ loyalty has allowed us to sustain our growth.
