Car wrap installer Nick Caminiti from Exotic Graphix in Melbourne has retained his title and again been named King of the Wrap World at the Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions “Wrap Like a King” Challenge at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Winning a second Wrap Like a King title in a row is an incredible feeling, and we’re truly honoured to accept the title of King of the Wrap World from Avery Dennison,” said Caminiti. “We knew the field would be gunning for the Exotic Graphix team after our success last year, but we put in the work and came out on top against a really accomplished field.”

Caminiti used Avery Dennison® Supreme WrappingTM Film Diamond Silver and MPI 1105 with DOL 6460 overlaminate to complete his winning entry titled Lei’d Low – a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle with a Hawaiian surf theme.

 

Lei’d Low features three-dimensional, embossed wood effects created with vinyl film, as well as a fully templated vinyl wrap that replicates a 1960’s-inspired paint job. Other points of interest include a wrapped steering wheel, a holographic visor and custom offset wheels.

A panel of international industry judges chose the King of the Wrap World, as well as Regional Wrap Kings and the first-ever Continent Wrap Kings from North America, Europe, North Asia and Australia/New Zealand.

“All of the region and continent winning wraps in 2017 took extraordinary skill, so the ultimate king had to be decided by a very slim margin,” said Peter Wright, Wrap Like a King judge and technical marketing manager, Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions, Australia/New Zealand.

“The craftsmanship that we saw from the entirety of this year’s field was the most impressive yet, and our expectations will only continue to grow with the number of talented installers there are across the world.”

The judges evaluated 159 total submissions from 19 countries around the world based on the criteria of visual transformation (difference between the before and after pictures submitted), quality and skill level of installation, overall public look and appeal and uniqueness of the design.

Caminiti’s King of the Wrap World prize package includes a three-night stay in Las Vegas to attend the SEMA show, a 67” Race Ramp and Wrap Like a King swag. In addition, he will receive a US$1,000 cash prize, a King of the Wrap World trophy and almost US$1,000 worth of marketing support from Avery Dennison, including Facebook® ads, exposure on the Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions website and a print ad in a trade show publication.
