I’ve been installing graphics for 10 years, spending eight of those years primarily focused on wrapping cars. I install a lot of digitally printed commercial wraps for local businesses, and my skills have improved greatly with practice over the years. One application area that has always been a challenge for me is perfecting wraps on door handles and mirrors. Their very curved surfaces and recesses can make installing vinyl on that area of a car or truck a difficult and time consuming process.



When I looked into the Avery Dennison Basic/Intermediate Wrapping Workshop, I saw it as an opportunity to get quicker and better at wrapping. I participated in the workshop in Carrollton, Texas from Feb. 15­-16, and it certainly helped me fine tune my skills.

Justin Pate, the instructor of the workshop, really spent a lot of time with each participant, making sure he fully answered every question. He showed me a much quicker technique for wrapping door handles and mirrors that I will use in my future car wrap jobs. And, I got to practice with Justin’s guidance. The workshop helped me to improve my overall wrap installation speed, which means I can be more productive, and the new technique I’ve learned for handles and mirrors made the workshop worthwhile for me.

Going forward, I plan to take the certification exam in Denver in May, so I can be an Avery Dennison Certified Wrap Installer. The workshop was a good step in gaining confidence to take the certification exam and a good choice for sharpening my car wrap skills in general. 

Avery Dennison is holding 15 Basic/Intermediate and 18 Intermediate/Advanced graphics installations classes across the United States and Canada in 2016. There will also be 16 opportunities to take the certification exam to earn the designation of Certified Wrap Installer.
