AVERY DENNISON® “WRAP LIKE A KING” CHALLENGE OPENS FOR VEHICLE
WRAP SUBMISSIONS


Mentor, Ohio, July 9, 2018 – Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions announced the opening of its annual “Wrap Like A King” Challenge. This year’s vehicle wrap competition will run July 9 through September 14, 2018, and it will again include Regional Wrap Kings, Continental Wrap Kings and the crowning of the “King of the Wrap World.”

Wrap installers from 53 countries across the globe can submit commercial, full print or color change wrap projects to be judged to win thousands in prizes. The prize packages for 2018 are worth a combined total of over $30,000, available to Regional Wrap Kings, Continent Wrap Kings and the “King of the Wrap World.” Over 150 installers entered the Challenge in 2017.

“Wrap Like A King is a strong representation of our commitment to the vehicle wrap community and its astonishing creativity,” said Jeff Losch, marketing director, Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions. “We aim to make the most efficient, appealing vinyl wrap products, and rewarding the most impressive wraps from our talented customers is a tradition that maintains our focus on where the industry is heading.”

Participating nations make up twelve geographic regions across the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea. Wrap installers in these regions will submit projects featuring Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping™ Film, the Conform Chrome series, the ColorFlow™ Series, MPI 1105 Supercast Digital film or a combination of car wrap films to be evaluated against their regional peers by a panel of judges.

The 12 Regional Wrap Kings win almost $2,000 worth of personalized marketing materials, Avery Dennison product, SEMA passes and more. They will go on to battle for royalty on their continents, North America, Europe, North Asia and Australia/New Zealand, and the overall winner will be chosen by the judges as the best in show and crowned the “King of the Wrap World” at the 2018 SEMA Show, October 30 - November 2, 2018 in Las Vegas, NV.
