Josh Nielsen of Fingerprint Signs, says, "Wrap Like A King has been a great experience and opportunity for my and the team at Fingerprint Signs.
“We did not expect to become the continental winner for ANZ but it has made us feel so much better about our work.
“I have always been inspired by the wrap work done all over the world which pushed me to follow my dream in becoming a wrap designer and installer. I never thought I would get this far with my work and it is a great feeling to know that my work is not only enjoyed by the locals in Tasmania by now all over the world."
Victorian car wrap printer Exotic Graphix topped the global contest last year.
Jeff Losch, marketing director, Avery Dennison Graphics solutions says, “We are one step away from a new global wrap king, and each of the remaining entries is a strong representation of what this challenge is all about. Our team cannot wait to see the winners in Las Vegas, because each one has accomplished something remarkable.”
