Lowen Corporation - 3/24/2009

Wrap-Off Main Event Takes Place At International Sign Expo 2009

Kansas based business Lowen Corporation, the leading provider of large-format, full-color vehicle wrap graphics 
in the country, will be holding a unique competition while in attendance at the International Sign Expo, taking 
place April 16-18 in Las Vegas.  Ninety-six professional wrap installers will have the chance to showcase their 
skills and compete to win a brand new Ford F-250 XL work truck and the title of “America’s Best Wrap Installer” 
in the first of its kind “Wrap Off” competition.  Contestants will wrap specially designed graphic film (provided by 
wrap film and laminate industry leader 3M) onto six Ford Mustangs in time heats taking place throughout the 
convention and could win the grand prize of a Ford F-250 XL work truck loaded with MacTools.  Other prizes 
for runners-up include an HP Touchsmart TX-2-1020us Notebook computer, a complete truck tool box and 
wrapper tool set from MacTools, an OOB Gold graphic software system from Cyrious Control and a free wrapper 
certification from Lowen.  All entrants will receive an exclusive “Wrap-Off” Dickies work shirt for their efforts.  
Contestants must pre-register at

“The sign industry is known for creating impactful visuals in all advertising mediums, so we wanted to create an 
equally impactful event at the convention,” said Sergio DeSoto, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for the 
Wraps and Media division.  “And given the circumstances of the current economy, the grand prize can gain 
the winners entry into their own wrap installation business.” 

Contestants must bring their own tools and can use any they prefer.  Lowen will supply propane if a torch head 
is used. Installer contestants will be paired off on one of six Ford Mustangs and will be given 50 minutes to 
complete the wrap.  The installer who finishes first with the fewest mistakes (mistakes add penalty time) will 
move on to the next heat.   Heats will continue until Friday, and on Saturday the last two contestants will 
compete in a grueling two hour contest to determine the winner.  Best time for all heats wins.  A panel of six 
independent sign professionals will judge.   For more information on the contest including rules and regulations,
