Kevin Kempf, PG Nola

My name is Kevin Kempf, and I’m a car wrap installer at PG Nola of New Orleans. Our shop’s submission, titled “Psycho Hurricane,” won both the North America Central Regional prize and the King of the Wrap World prize for Wrap Like a King 2015 after being chosen by a panel of judges at SEMA. The submission featured Avery Dennison Conform Chrome Silver and Black with DOL 1370 Luster Overlaminate and HV 1200 reflective film.

At PG Nola, we consider ourselves the little guys in New Orleans. We decided to enter the 2015 Wrap Like a King Challenge, because we wanted to see how we would do against our peers in the industry. It was the first major contest we ever entered. We were a bit anxious to see how we would do, but we asked ourselves “Why not?”

Being in New Orleans, which is a much smaller city than the major cities in California, Florida and the Northeast, we had no idea how popular the Psycho Hurricane would become when we created the car wrap. As a result of winning the Challenge, we are more well known all over the world. We get great compliments from our local fan base and the people we meet out of state as well. We have always been busy, but the recognition has been a big plus.

With tons of colors and texture options, we had a lot of room to create something awesome with Avery Dennison films. The quality of the films meant that they would always lay nicely, and the support from the Avery Dennison internal reps was so helpful when we had a request or needed anything. They responded in a timely manner, and that meant a lot.

We have several huge car wrap projects up our sleeves for this year’s Challenge. We are confident that we are going to take the title back to back, and you can take that to the bank. The competition better bring their A game to the Challenge!
