Avery Dennison announces 2019 Wrap Class schedule

Avery Dennison announces 2019 Wrap Class schedule including over 40 workshops across three different formats.

Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions announced today that the 2019 Wrap Training schedule is available and registration is open.

The 2019 lineup features over 40 workshops across three different educational offerings. The Digital Full Print Hands-On Workshop for basic and intermediate installers will be taught by vinyl wrap experts Justin Pate of the Wrap Institute, John Duever of Vinyl Images and Chad Parrish of Graphiti Wraps. Pate and Duever will lead the Supreme Wrapping Film Workshops for intermediate to advanced installers, as well as the new Business Boot Camp for Wrap Professionals.

“Each of the Avery Dennison class offerings for 2019 teaches a vital part of succeeding in the vinyl wrap business,” said Pate. “Building technical installation skills is still a major part of what we teach, but we’ve expanded our focus on handling business matters, improving workflow and bringing home more money from your wrap or sign shop at the end of the day.”

Digital Full Print Hands-On Workshops 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 class, ranging from calendered wall and floor films to cast Avery Dennison MPI 1105 Easy Apply RS film for vehicle wraps.
