About Southend Graphics

We are a graphics wrap and detailing shop located in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Focusing on Ultimate Quality Vehicle Wraps, Paint Correction, Superior Glass Coatings, Signs and Banners

Vehicle Wraps and Car Advertising

Develop the look and message that’s right for your brand and business objectives.
First, you’ll meet with our vehicle graphics design team, either in person, by phone, or email. Together you’ll devise an effective and attractive vehicle wrap for your business. We’ll then output your custom graphics to vinyl especially suited to truck, van, and
car advertising.

We’ve got vehicle graphics installation down to a science
The next step is all about professionalism – one of our strong suits! It takes us about two days to print and laminate the materials for your vehicle wrap, and then about another two days to expertly install it on your vehicle. That’s right – we only need your vehicle for the last two or three days of the process, allowing you to maximize your mobility throughout the delivery lead time.

3M GRAPHICS WRAP AND PRINTING

We’ve got vehicle graphics installation down to a science
The next step is all about professionalism – one of our key services! It takes us about two days to print and laminate the materials for your vehicle wrap, and then about another two days to expertly install it on your vehicle. That’s right – we only need your vehicle for the last two or three days of the process, allowing you to maximize your mobility throughout the delivery lead time.

Partial and Full Vehicle Wraps (Commercial)

We design, print and install high resolution vehicle wraps using high performance 3M IJ180cv3, a top quality wrap product in this industry with only the best 3M pairing laminate film. Our products are installed in-house by our company certified installation team. This adds the 3M Performance Guarantee to our vehicle wraps.

According to the Transportation Advertising Council, a division of the OAAA, vehicle advertising generates between 30,000 and 70,000 daily vehicular impressions.
Another research by the American Trucking Association indicates that 91% of the surveys report people do notice words and pictures on fleet vehicles.
75% report that they developed a favorable impression of the company when graphics were used and that 25% said they would base a buying on these impressions.
To maximize the impact and reap the most benefits of this powerful tool you need a company with a strong background.

Mike Burke

CEO

Mike Burke graduated with a marketing degree from Western Carolina University in 1994 and spent 6 months of the following year as the #1 salesman at Scott Clark Toyota. He had always wanted to create something of his own, so in 1996 he moved to Myrtle Beach and opened his first tint shop, Innovations. Homesick after a year at the beach, he returned to Charlotte and started a mobile tinting company, The Tint Man, in 1997. He quickly became the primary tint provider for most of the stereo and accessory shops within a 50-mile radius of Charlotte. In fact, he was so successful as the Tint Man that in 1999 he created a new company, Lightning Mike’s, and opened his first retail location to keep up with demand. Over the next 6 years, Mike built Lightning Mike’s to 6 locations around Charlotte, offering a variety of aftermarket automotive services – inspections, A/V, accessories, wheels & tires – in addition to window tinting. During this time he also opened a small car dealership. By 2005, after gross sales of $1.6 million, Mike had a small child at home and decided to sell Lighting Mike’s to spend more time with his family. He chose to take a break from the auto industry, pulling on his educational background to start an ad agency, Pinpoint Advertising, which focused on direct marketing to upscale customers.

With Southend Graphics Mike took what he’d learned building and running his first several companies, and decided to follow a Starbucks-type model, focusing on quality rather than quantity with an emphasis on providing a superior product and excellent customer service. By doing one thing – automotive services such as tinting, graphics and wraps – extremely well, Southend Graphics built a reputation as the place to go for the best overall customer experience. Over the course of the shops’ 10 years in business, Mike has now expanded his product offering to include mobile tinting services, automotive paint-protection film, roller shades, residential and commercial flat-glass tint and specialty, printed films for commercial storefronts, branding and advertising and automotive graphics and wraps specializing commercially.

Southend Graphics now has 7 local retail locations, from Matthews to Concord and Huntersville to Lake Wylie, 3 flat glass divisions covering the entire Charlotte metro and surrounding area, and 2 franchise locations in Charleston SC and Boston MA. As his shops continue to expand, Mike is careful never to lose sight of the core values that make it great – motivation, teamwork, quality, putting the customer first, and – most of all – caring.
