Mentor, Ohio, January 24, 2017 – There were so many amazing graphic installations in 2016, and it was hard to pick the best from such an outstanding offering. With that said, we have compiled our top 15 unique and impressive wrap projects created with our digitally printable and screen and cut vinyl films. Eight non-traditional wraps and seven vehicle wraps were chosen based on their noteworthy and creative use of Avery Dennison films.
“The annual list of top projects has become a highlight for Avery Dennison,” said Jeff Losch, marketing director, Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions. “It’s exciting to see how our films, whether recently-released technology or classic color change, can be used in a multitude of applications. Over the past few years, the vinyl industry has been changing to become more visionary and resourceful and we see that reflected in this year’s Top 15 list.”
