Avery Dennison® Announces Wrap Class Schedule in more than 35 North American Locations

Mentor, Ohio, January 10, 2018 – Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions announced today that the 2018 Wrap Training schedule is available and registration is open. The total number of workshops available has expanded to 44 at more than 35 locations throughout North America. The Basic/Intermediate and Advanced classes will be taught by expert installers Justin Pate of the Wrap Institute and John Duever of Vinyl Images.

“Both beginner and advanced installers can really benefit from taking one or both of the Avery Dennison workshops, because what we teach is always evolving to match the growth of the wrap industry,” said Pate. “John and I also share lessons learned from our years in the industry on the business side. This means installers learn how to wrap with high quality and low install times, while getting essential tips on how to run a business.”

The Basic/Intermediate Classes, sponsored by Mutoh, focus on Avery Dennison digital films used in a wide variety of applications, such as walls, floors, windows and full print vehicle wraps. Installers learn hands-on techniques for many films during the workshop, ranging from calendered wall and floor films to cast Avery Dennison MPI 1105 Easy Apply RS™ film for vehicle wraps.

Candidates who pass the certification exam become Avery Dennison Certified Wrap Installers and will receive a promotional package for the program that includes a t-shirt, banner, certificate and window sticker, as well as promotion on the “Find an Installer” section of the website.   

“We listened to installers and are offering more Basic/Intermediate and Advanced classes in 2018 than ever before,” said Jeff Losch, marketing director, Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions. “Our classes offer attendees the opportunity to learn the benefits that Avery Dennison digital and color change films offer from experts in the industry. Our goal is to advance the wrap industry and provide installers who pass the Avery Dennison Certification Exam with marketing support that highlights their expertise and the exclusive club they joined by successfully demonstrating their skills.”

“I’ve spent more than six years installing wraps on cars for my small business, Bullitt Auto Detail. Over the years, I’ve really honed my skills, but I make sure to go to the Avery Dennison wrap training classes every time they’re in my region,” said Ken Mahlschnee, Car Wrap Installer, Bullitt Auto Detail & Vinyl Wraps. “Even with all the installations I’ve done in my shop, I always seem to come away from the class with improved technique. I also value the networking opportunities and wrap tips I learn from Justin Pate.”
