3M, the science-based technology company, has recognised one of its long-term vehicle graphics specialists, Wrap Cube, by appointing it as a Select Gold Partner. The Gold Partner designation recognises Wrap Cube’s support for its vehicle wrapping and fleet graphics activities. Based in Tolworth, Surrey, the company was one of the first vehicle wrapping specialists to become an approved installer of superior-quality 3M print wrap film products. A 3M partner since 2010, it remains one of a handful of approved 3M installers in the UK, and the sole accredited supplier to London and surrounding areas.

Thanks to its special composition, everyone, even non-professionals, can easily and quickly customise any type of car and vehicle. The special adhesive with low initial adhesion, Slide&Tack literally "slides" on the surface to be customised, thus facilitating correct positioning and accelerating application. It is only during application that the adhesive is activated, reaching optimal adhesion within 24 hours.

Justin Pate of the Wrap Institute and John Duever of Vinyl Images & Design will help wrap professionals build their businesses for long-term success at the Business Boot Camp for Wrap Professionals by Avery Dennison. The day-long event is part of the pre-conference at ISA International Sign Expo 2019.

We have chosen the 10 most impressive vinyl wraps using Avery Dennison vinyl products in 2018. This is the fifth annual list of vehicle and non-vehicle wraps, and it features some of the most unique and creative projects yet. Five car wraps and five non-vehicle wraps were installed with Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping™ Film, Conform Chrome™, and digitally printed films MPI 1105™, MPI 1405™ and MPI 2728™.

The Wrap Masters Eurasia 2018 took place on the 8th- 9th December at FESPA Eurasia 2018 and was sponsored by Hexis and Car Wrapper 3D. Entrants were put through 4 gruelling rounds which included a creative round and were tasked with wrapping cars and other items using HEXIS vinyl. All entrants were judged on the quality of their installations.

Vehicle Livery Services has just installed its second Epson SureColor SC-S80600 printer, testament to the results it has achieved with the first that came in 18 months ago. This latest printer, supplied by Papergraphics, replaces an HP latex machine.

A new livery on the Huddersfield FC Team bus was recently unveiled, resulting in a striking end result which will definitely attract attention wherever it goes.
