Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions (Mentor, OH) announced today that MetroWrapz (Hollywood, FL) has won the 2019 Wrap Like a King competition, earning the “King of the Wrap World” title for the second consecutive year. The company, chosen from 155 global entries, pushed creativity to the limits with its “‘Creature from the Wrap Lagoon”’ wrap, transforming a 2017 Acura NSX, according to a statement released by Avery Dennison. The “King of the Wrap World” award was presented at the Avery Dennison booth during the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
MetroWrapz, once again, has earned the Global Wrap King title, against a more competitive field than ever before. It was inspiring to see their team push boundaries and take the art of wrapping to a new level, said Abby Monnot, senior global segment manager, Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions, North America.
According to the MetroWrapz team, the inspiration for the wrap came from the 1954 film Creature from the Black Lagoon and required full use of the team’s skills to set new standards for speed of application and quality of finish. The team used Avery Dennison Conform Chrome Silver Film with DOL 1370 Luster laminate to create a realistic shiny silky skin, enhanced by amphibian hues of yellow and green — also according to the statement released by the company. Supreme Wrapping Film ColorFlow Series in Gloss Fresh Spring added a finishing touch.
New for 2019 was a “People’s Choice Award”, which went to Wrapcar Grey Matt by Genus Cars, gaining the most votes out of a total of 30,000. The team wrapped a Mercedes-Benz using Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping Film in Matte Grey.
