Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions has chosen its annual list of the ten most impressive vehicle and non-vehicle vinyl wraps using Avery Dennison products. Installers can now submit their entries for the 2019 event.
“The possibilities with vinyl films are almost endless, and every year we get to see new and exciting projects that take Avery Dennison films to the next level,” said Jeff Losch, North America marketing director at Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions, in a press release. “Digitally printed or colour shifting, on a car or on a guitar, 2018 had another incredible line-up of unique, well-executed wraps.”
The Top 5 vehicle wraps of 2018 include:
A printed Conform Chrome wrap was featured on a truck (pictured, above) build by Legendary Customs in the AMSOIL booth at SEMA. IVS Wraps, with design help from Dan Nava of the International Brotherhood of Wrappers, created a warplane look.
Rust and camouflage are popular effects created with printed MPI 1105, but Spectrum Auto brought out a new look. This sedan sports a realistic marble look, thanks to a quality installation and the clarity of the film.
Wrap Like A King Regional Winner Canadian Wrap Masters created three layers of embossing using Conform Chrome Red with DOL 1370Z satin laminate. This drawn-by-hand design impressed judges and created a one-of-a-kind look.
Bullitt Auto Detail and Vinyl Wraps found its way into the Avery Dennison top wraps again by wowing a Formula Drift racing team with this printed MPI 1105™ wrap on a 53-foot trailer.
Rounding out the top vehicle wraps is the global winner for the 2018 Wrap Like A King Challenge, the Mission Flyer 2.0 (above) by MetroWrapz. Another warplane-inspired project, made possible by Supreme Wrapping Film, MPI 1105 and Conform Chrome films, brought the wrap king crown back to the United States for the first time since 2015.
The Top 5 non-vehicle wraps of 2018 include:
Workhorse Signs pulled off a challenging wrap by using printed MPI 1405 film and crafty installation techniques. The shop had to overcome sand and heat while installing a graphic on a brick beach wall. With an ability to conform to textured surfaces, MPI 1405 film adhered to the wall and made for a successful application.
The hoverboard was a popular item to wrap, and Vehicle Wraps Inc. gave this one a shade shifting look using ColorFlow Roaring Thunder vinyl.
CKL Wraps helped to drum up excitement for a Lego exhibit at a local museum.
Supreme Wrapping Film Diamond Blue paired with blue waters to make for a stunning look on this 56-foot race yacht. Wrapture Customs took on this challenging project and made a boat wrap to be remembered.
Custom designs on guitars are a trademark of rock enthusiasts, and Phillips Signs carried on that tradition. MPI 1105 supercast film gave this six-string some character with a weathered wood design.
