A3 Wraps – Vehicle Graphics & Clear Bra is owned and operated by Anthony (Tony) Lucero, whose passion for car wraps, graphic design, and automotive restyling brought him widespread acclaim in the Denver vinyl wrapping scene and a loyal base of customers. Mr. Lucero loves applying film to cars, buildings, windows, company vehicle fleets, or anything else. Whether he’s putting Paint protection film on a Corvette or applying a giant Mural to a 3-story co-working space interior Wall, he’s happiest when he has his hands applying vinyl. Tony has worked hard to build A3 Wraps into the respected Denver business it is today, and reputation is everything to him.
When approaching a new Vehicle Graphics, Wall decal
or other Graphics project, Tony draws on his wealth of experience in the industry while having an open mind to the possibilities of the specific project in question. This allows him to constantly exceed expectations and delight Denver business owners.
When applying Paint protection film
, Ceramic coating
, or Vehicle vinyl wrap to personal vehicles, Tony refuses to cut corners. Rather than applying a blade to the vinyl wrap while it is on the Vehicle (a common timesaving practice for car wrap applicators), he uses either knifeless tape or precut vinyl components, depending on the application. He treats every vehicle with the same degree of care and excellence that he would his own.

“Had my 1969 Lincoln continental wrapped by A3. My car is a massive boat with some of the most surface area of any car ever made. A3 wrapped it clean. Even in areas where splicing was required due to the size of my car (likely not an issue for any other car), it came out perfectly symmetrical. People never even know it's a wrap until I tell them. Quality work and fair price.” —Brian Martinez
“When I needed some Vehicle Graphics, I called around to several sign shops and I definitely felt like Tony was the most patient and helpful with all my questions, so I went with him. The graphics turned out very nice, and I can definitely recommend A3 for anyone needing their vehicle wrapped!” —Sandra BarnesFleet vehicle graphics

Denver is an amazing city to live and work, and we at A3 Wraps - Vehicle Graphics & Clear Bra are fortunate to call it home. Below are a few interesting facts about Denver, courtesy of Wikipedia:
Denver, officially the City and County of Denver, is the capital and most populous municipality of the U.S. state of Colorado. Denver is located in the South Platte River Valley on the western edge of the High Plains just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. With an estimated population of 727,211 in 2019, Denver is the 19th-most populous city in the United States, the fifth-most populous state capitol, and the most populous city located in the Mountain states. The metropolitan area surrounding Denver represents a majority of the population and economic activity in the Front Range region, an area within which an estimated 85% of Colorado's population lives. The Denver downtown district is immediately east of the confluence of Cherry Creek with the South Platte River, approximately 12 mi (19 km) east of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Denver is named after James W. Denver, a governor of the Kansas Territory. It is nicknamed the Mile High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5280 feet or 1609.3 meters) above sea level. The 105th meridian west of Greenwich, the longitudinal reference for the Mountain Time Zone, passes directly through Denver Union Station.
Denver is ranked as a Beta world city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network. The 10-county Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area had an estimated 2018 population of 2,932,415 and was the 19th most populous U.S. metropolitan statistical area. The 12-city Denver-Aurora, CO Combined Statistical Area had an estimated 2018 population of 3,572,798 and was the 15th most populous U.S. metropolitan area. Denver was the most populous city of the 18-county Front Range Urban Corridor, an oblong urban region stretching across two states with an estimated 2018 population of 4,976,781. Denver is the most populous city within a 500-mile (800 km) radius and the second-most populous city in the Mountain West after Phoenix, Arizona. In 2016, Denver was named the best place to live in the United States by U.S. News & World Report.
As of January 2013, the City and County of Denver has defined 78 official neighborhoods that the city and community groups use for planning and administration. Although the city's delineation of the neighborhood boundaries is somewhat arbitrary, it corresponds roughly to the definitions used by residents. These ""neighborhoods"" should not be confused with cities or suburbs, which may be separate entities within the metro area.
The character of the neighborhoods varies significantly from one to another and includes everything from large skyscrapers to houses from the late 19th century to modern, suburban-style developments. Generally, the neighborhoods closest to the city center are denser, older and contain more brick building material. Many neighborhoods away from the city center were developed after World War II, and are built with more modern materials and style. Some of the neighborhoods even farther from the city center, or recently redeveloped parcels anywhere in the city, have either very suburban characteristics or are new urbanist developments that attempt to recreate the feel of older neighborhoods.
Denver does not have larger area designations, unlike the City of Chicago, which has larger areas that house the neighborhoods (IE: Northwest Side). Denver residents use the terms ""north"", ""south"", ""east"", and ""west"".
Denver also has a number of neighborhoods not reflected in the administrative boundaries. These neighborhoods may reflect the way people in an area identify themselves or they might reflect how others, such as real estate developers, have defined those areas. Well-known non-administrative neighborhoods include the historic and trendy LoDo (short for ""Lower Downtown""), part of the city's Union Station neighborhood; Uptown, straddling North Capitol Hill and City Park West; Curtis Park, part of the Five Points neighborhood; Alamo Placita, the northern part of the Speer neighborhood; Park Hill, a successful example of intentional racial integration; and Golden Triangle, in the Civic Center.
