Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions today announced the 10 regional winners from its annual Wrap Like a King Challenge.
Wrap installers from 53 countries across the world were invited to submit full-print or color-change wrap projects to be judged for the chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes. The projects were completed featuring options from the Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping Film portfolio including Conform Chrome, MPI 1105 Supercast Digital film or a combination of car wrap films to be evaluated against their regional peers by a panel of judges.
The following vehicle graphics installers and shops have been crowned the Regional Wrap Kings:
- North America East: The “Nebula Graffiti GR” project, designed by CORSA Auto Design and wrapped by Empire Vinyl Co.

An international panel of judges reviewed every submission, ultimately naming the top 10 Regional Wrap Kings. The eight judges evaluated each project by the following criteria: visual transformation (difference between the before-and-after photos submitted), quality of workmanship and skill level of installation, overall public appeal and uniqueness of the design.
The 2019 panel of judges included: Justin Pate of The Wrap Institute; Myles Kovacs of DUB Magazine; Yianni Charalambous of Yiannimize; Eddy Speelman of Speelman Graphic Applications; Molly Waters of Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions; Peter Wright of Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions; Sarel Krüger of Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions; and Frank Marquart of Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions.
“We’re amazed with the level of creativity that was put into each of the projects submitted this year,” said Abby Monnot, senior global segment manager, Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions North America. “The panel was impressed with how many installers found a way to bring imaginative concepts into reality using Avery Dennison products. We’re proud that we are able to provide a platform in which installers can showcase their work to the world.”
Each Regional Wrap King will be awarded nearly $2,000 worth of personalized marketing materials, Avery Dennison products and passes to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada from Nov. 5-8, 2019.
