Waxing...graphics?

I was just curious (I didn't find anything that really covered this), is it still normal procedure when you wax or even claybar your car when you have graphics on the car? Like do you go over it or like a pain (depending on how complicated the graphics are) around it?

Not that I have any graphics on my car, but if I did, I'd like to know...thanks!

Are you referring to paint graphics or sticker graphics? Paint graphics I wax over and sticker graphics I will either wax over or wax around...Its easier to wax over it though

Ah, I was thinking sticker graphics...have you ever waxed over that? I'm thinking there might be buildup around the corners of the graphics that would be annoying to get off, and then worrying about if the corners would lift due to buffing...

If you do get a buildup around the edges of the graphic, try and use Meguiar's Final Inspection spray....spray around edges and wipe off..should remove most of the residue anyways...
