Congratulations to the 2014 winners of the Wrap Like a King Challenge! “Tramontana R - Kicks N Whipz” by Bruno Dede from Metro Signs, Inc. / Metro Wrapz, won the Judges’ Choice Award grand prize and “Full Wrap on a Dodge Viper” by Scott Bechtel from Car Wrap City won the Fan Favorite Award. Both winners were represented at the SEMA Show 2014 in Las Vegas.
The winners were presented with a trophy by Ryan Friedlinghaus in an award ceremony in the West Coast Customs® booth at SEMA Ignited on Friday, November 7, 2014.
“We’re thrilled to have won the Judge’s Choice Award! We were looking to create a unique design using a combination of Avery Dennison® Supreme Wrapping Films, Digital Supercast Films and overlaminates and that’s what we did,” said Dede.
A 2013 Tramontana R sports car was custom wrapped in Avery Dennison Gold Mirror Specialty film and Avery Dennison MPI 1005 Supercast film, inspired by Dwyane Wade’s latest sneaker design. The entire car was sealed with DOL 1380 Matte Overlaminate, giving it a shimmery gold finish.
The Fan Favorite Award winner, “Full Wrap on a Dodge Viper,” designed and installed by Car Wrap City, featured a full wrap with Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping Film White Pearlescent with Carmine Red and Dark Blue accents.
“The owner of the Viper came to us to create a custom look that would also protect the original paint on his new vehicle,” said Bechtel. “He was blown away with the design and how the vinyl films really looked like paint.”
“This year’s entries really surpassed our expectations. The talent, creative use of Avery Dennison products, uniqueness of the designs, difficulty and skill level of the installations and the overall look of the entries were more than we imagined,” said Erin Harmon, North America marketing segment leader at Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions. “Avery Dennison is incredibly proud of all the installers.”
A total of over $15,000 in prizes was given away to participants and voters. All of the Top 32 entries won Visa gift cards and multiple voters in each round were randomly awarded CroftgateUSA® gift cards. One grand prize-voting winner, selected from all the voters, was awarded a $175 Croftgate gift card.
