Every day, Canadian graphics fabricators and installers work on exciting projects for clients - some are more challenging than others. Some are extremely challenging. It could be due to the situation. It could be due to the application. Either way, 3M wants to recognize sign shops and their installers for the extremely exceptional work they do on these extreme projects.

Extreme Wrap Challenge

The Extreme Wrap Challenge is a contest for Canadian graphics fabricators and their installers. During the qualifying round (April 22 to July 31, 2015), sign shops can submit their most extreme project(s). Each fabricator's entry is also automatically entered into three random draws to win a $100 Branded Prepaid Card. If an entry is selected by the panel of judges, the sign shop will receive a $500 Branded Prepaid Card and a framed image of its submission to celebrate with the entire shop. Additionally, the installer wins a trip to Toronto to compete as a contender in the Extreme Wrap Challenge.

Contenders in the Extreme Wrap Challenge will wrap like their lives depend on it on Wednesday, September 23, 2015. They will face three unique challenges: one testing installation on extreme curves, one testing installation in extreme temperatures and one testing installation on extreme textures. Specific details will be disclosed to the three contenders closer to the Extreme Wrap Challenge date.

All contenders will be tested using 3M™ Envision™ Print Wrap Films as it is designed for these extreme situations.
