Avery Dennison and Mutoh America Inc. have joined forces to offer ten car wrap training sessions at various locations in the United States and Canada in 2012. Every session of the popular Avery / Mutoh Car Wrap Training Program, taught by Justin Pate, was sold out in 2011. Registration for the 2012 training sessions has opened and is available at na.averygraphics.com.
Justin Pate will return to teach his vehicle wrap installation techniques with Avery MPI 1005 Supercast Easy Apply RS, Supreme Wrapping Films and DOL overlaminates. A new feature added for 2012 is a design, layout and front-end customer service half-day module with industry expert Todd LaBrie. Avery Dennison certification tests will also be offered in conjunction with each session. Mutoh America, ONYX, Knifeless Tape and CroftGate will support the Avery / Mutoh Car Wrap Training Program sessions in 2012.
The 2011 classes received rave reviews. A participant from Georgia commented, “I really learned a lot in the class and it has really been paying off in the time I save at work.”
Each session consists of two days of training focused on all of the critical steps needed to improve the quality and speed of car wrap installations. Class sizes will be restricted to a maximum of 17 students to allow for valuable one-on-one teaching.
A variety of subjects will be covered, including tools, properties of the film, removals, cleaning, UGIS (Universal Graphic Installation System), layout/key panel, registration, problem solving, hardware removals and post install tips.
Participants of each class will receive an NT Cutter A-551P knife, Avery Toolkit including print media and laminate and a Martor safety box - a package valued at over US$700.
