Mentor, Ohio, January 4, 2017 – Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions announced today that the 2017 schedule of Wrap Classes is now open for registration and will include a new category of classes. Renowned installers Justin Pate of the Wrap Institute and John Duever of Vinyl Images will host two-day Digital Films Classes and Supreme Wrapping™ Film Classes, along with new three-day Business Boot Camps, in 24 cities across North America.

“Taking a hands-on workshop is one of the best ways to raise quality, lower install times and increase profitability for installers and shop owners,” said Pate. “In 2017, our classes will be more beneficial than ever, with a focus on both the the most cutting edge installation techniques and business skills that are necessary for success in this industry.”

New for 2017 are Avery Dennison Business Boot Camps. These three-day classes will take participants through a simulated wrap shop job, with lessons on how to make the best business decisions and overcome everyday challenges from wrap design and pricing to production and installation. The schedule is being finalized for these classes and will be posted on the Wrap Class page.

Digital Films Classes, sponsored by Mutoh, teach skills for a wide variety of applications, including walls, floors, windows and full print vehicle wraps.
