The Avery Dennison / Mutoh Car Wrap Training classes attendees obtain an in-depth understanding of graphic installation techniques using Avery Dennison's vehicle wrap materials, specifically Avery Dennison MPI 1005 Supercast Easy Apply RS, DOL overlaminates and Supreme Wrapping Films.
The remaining 2014 Avery Dennison / Mutoh Car Wrap Training classes are currently sold out but a waiting list is available for three classes in September and October, in case of cancellations.
