Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions will hold ten Avery Dennison / Mutoh Car Wrap Training Classes and twelve Supreme Wrapping Films Workshops in 2014. All installation classes will be taught by Avery Dennison certified installer Justin Pate.
“I use the techniques and tricks I learned at the Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping Films workshop on a daily basis,” said Sean Tomlin of Designer Wraps. “Justin was able to work with each person, very closely on any issues we had at the time. He showed us specific tips, like working and trimming corners properly, to improve the quality of our installations.”
“Avery Dennison is committed to helping graphics installers learn the best installation techniques with a variety of films,” said Paul Roba, technical manager for Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions. “All of the Avery Dennison installation training classes sold out quickly in 2013. Justin Pate teaches students the process of installing a wrap from A to Z, from laying the film out on the vehicle to wrapping a compound curve.”
The Avery Dennison / Mutoh Car Wrap Training is a three-day session that includes two days of hands-on wrap instruction with the option to take the Avery Dennison wrap certification exam and a wrap design class on the third day. All classes are taught using Avery Dennison® MPI 1005 Supercast Easy Apply RS™, a popular film choice with installers because it is easy to use and quick to install with excellent printability.
The Supreme Wrapping Films Workshop is a one-day class that teaches students how to work with all types of Avery Dennison® Supreme Wrapping Films, which are available in 78 colors with a variety of finishes including gloss, gloss, matte and brushed metallic, matte, carbon fiber and conform chrome.
