Wrap Training Testimonials

"I have attended two classes hosted by the Wrap Institute, Justin Pate and Avery Dennison, and the volume of information you receive in such a short amount of time is priceless. I have been wrapping for over ten years and the knowledge I gained in attending those two classes has made my job that  much easier and has raised my quality and skill level to a point that has my customers recommending me in my community for wraps of all kinds, and that's the best kind of advertising!  I think the greatest thing about the class is the way Justin keeps up with all the latest techniques in a rapidly changing industry  and passes them on to all his students, The two classes I attended within a six month period were not the same both times and both were filled with new innovations for installation. I highly recommend the wrap institute for anyone out there that wraps, It will take your game to the next level."

97% of survey participants said their confidence in their skills increased after taking a course.

"The workshop and everyone I met was fantastic. I will be using all the techniques that were taught by Justin from now on. As an instructor I really liked him, his personality and his way of demonstrating everything was very thorough and he took his time. In the future I hope I'll feel comfortable and ready to take the next advanced class. I will be practicing as much as I can from now till then. Again, thank you."

"I just took the Avery Dennison Advanced class with Justin Pate. I learned a lot of new tricks. The cold pull that Justin has learned and passed on is really quick and really easy. We’ve personally been using Avery Dennison at our shop for about a year and a half and the tricks that I learned will help get the best out of the material."

"I took the Avery Dennison wrap class in Illinois with Justin Pate. WOW! I learned all the techniques and proper way to wrap in 2 days! And the material of choice is Avery Dennison! If Justin wants to use it, PAY ATTENTION! When you can cut install times in HALF because of the ease of use, you know Avery Dennison is the benchmark of quality, reliability, and ease of use! I will recommend all my customers to use Avery Dennison! Light Years above the competition!"

"I have owned my own sign business in San Francisco for 4.5 years. I took the Avery Supreme Wrapping Film training class in February of 2014 and have only been wrapping with Avery films since then. My whole staff loves Avery due to its slide ability. Not having to struggle with aggressive adhesive during the installation process lessens the amount of fatigue and frustration during the installation process."

"I think the course was planned and executed very well. I would highly consider taking any course Avery offers and would send a new employee to training courses on every hire."

"I wanted to let you know that the technique I learned at the Avery Dennison seminar have drastically improved our quality, and our business has taken off. We’re building an excellent reputation for the best quality wraps in the area. Thank you for your knowledge and expertise in helping us grow our business."

"I have just taken my 2nd Justin Pate wrap class and he is hands down one of the best teachers in the profession. I have deep roots in the basketball world and have experienced a lot of different teachers and coaches. I also know that great players rarely become great coaches but Justin is an exception to this rule. Justin has developed a successful and efficient installation process but he has the ability to articulate this process to others. What makes him even more awesome...is that he continues to learn as he has access to talented installers all over the world and is passionate about constantly improving his skills. Even though I am now an Avery Certified Wrap installer, I look forward to taking another advanced class in the next couple of years...it is money well spent!"

"The class was awesome. Justin covers everything and different situations. You get to work with all different vinyl materials. Very informative."

"I can’t believe how much my skills as an installer have gone up since I have switched to all Avery Dennison products in my wraps. I can’t wait to see what else I learn from this year’s workshops. Thanks again."

"Amazing class that exceeded my expectations."

“I have owned and operated a sign and graphics company for over 14 years. The past 4-5 years have seen more and more vehicle wraps coming through my shop. I have tried and used just about every wrap film on the market from several manufacturers and still felt my work was about 60-70% of what it could be. Making the switch to Avery and the MPI 1005 and Supreme Wrap film, combined with taking the Supreme Wrap class with Justin Pate was the greatest leap in quality and production in any area that my shop has ever made. A month before the class I went from taking a full size commercial van wrap with two people at 8+ hours down to under 4 hour by myself! The products are unsurpassed in quality, durability and best of all, ease of installation. There is no better instructor out there than Justin Pate. Do yourself, your shop and most of all your CUSTOMERS a favor and learn from the best, while using the best film out there.”

"I can’t believe how much my skills as an installer have gone up since I have switched to all Avery Dennison products in my wraps. I can’t wait to see what else I learn from this year’s workshops. Thanks again."

"As a growing wrap company, I first owe my success to Justin Pate, who has turned wrapping vehicles into a true art, taking pride in every wrap as if it would be on display in the Guggenheim. Secondly, Avery Dennison MPI 1005 film is another reason for my success. Justin showed me the difference in the Avery Dennison material and I have become a believer and now only buy MPI 1005. This is a dream to print and apply, giving us another step up in giving the customer the best wrap possible."

"I wanted to let you know that the techniques I learned at the Avery Dennison seminar have drastically improved our quality, and our business has taken off. We're building an excellent reputation for the best quality wraps in the area. Thank you for your knowledge and expertise in helping us grow our business."

"I have attended 2 Supreme Wrap classes and the 2-day print class.  Not only is Justin Pate a master of his craft, he is also an extremely effective teacher.  As a result of taking these classes, I have the confidence to wrap any vehicle, with or without graphics, and be assured that my installation will not fail.  I will continue to take classes as I learn something new each time, and as I complete more wraps, I realize where I have opportunity areas.  Anyone that has a business that includes wrapping needs to take these classes.  Thank you for the opportunity to give quality workmanship and skill to my customers."

"I am the wife of a vehicle wrap nut.  He had me attend one of Justin Pate’s classes, and I thought I was just “along for the ride”.  Although I was the only female in the class, I learned so much amidst more advanced students that I can actually help my husband with some of the wraps when needed.  There is such an art and skill to it, and I am fortunate to have experienced and learned everything I did in one day!  Now, I can not only teach high school, but wrap everything I get the urge to wrap!  Thank you."

"Just did a roof and mirror wrap with rally strips (Matte Black) on a 2015 Ford Mustang. Love the product. we have done installs with different vinyl companies and by far this product (Avery) was superior. Working with Avery was great. we have seen this product in the past but never really worked with it until we went to one of your SWF classes with Justin Pate. He was awesome and the product was awesome."
"Just wanted to let you know that after using the Avery wrap 1005 and 1360 lam for the first time on a big job. we want to thank you for such a awesome product. we have been using other wrap material in the past and nothing is as easy to install and work with as the Avery is. Moving forward we will be using Avery wrap material on our wraps. Love the product!"

"I had a mind opening experience this week with Justin pate, and especially the products avery dennison is making these days. I have been using 3m for years, and just had a headstrong mentality about other material. I was impressed beyond belief with both of your printed film and swf films you offer. I would love to switch over. Please keep in contact. Thank you!!!"

“My goal for the workshops is quite simple – to help raise the quality and durability of the installer’s work while lowering install times.  I do this via a combination of teaching my unique UGIS (Universal Graphic Installation System), showing the latest tools and by offering practical, easy to use solutions that come up during the carwrapping process.  I get the beginners up to speed by stressing strong fundamentals and help experienced installers master the trickier aspects along with creating better workflow.”                             - Justin Pate
