Avery Dennison® “Wrap Like A King” Challenge opens for vehicle wrap submissions

OEGSTGEEST, the Netherlands July 11, 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 15, 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 Oliver Guenther, senior director, marketing and channel strategy, Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions Europe. “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.”
