By M at t D i xo n F or the last few years, Sign & Digital Graphics has featured our annual Auto Art Contest in the pages of our Buyer's Guide. This year we decided to focus less on the graphics, and more on the people behind the graphics. Our 2013 Wrap Stars Section is a celebration of those who do the work, whether it be designing, printing or installing. We've taken 10 members of the vehicle wraps community and asked them a few questions about what makes the wrap industry click for them. The answers are personal, fun, and if you are also in the wraps business, possibly very familiar. I think my favorite part is finding out what wraps professionals did before they got into wraps. There are few wraps schools out there, so it's rare to find a person who came out of high school with a plan to join the world of vehicle graphics. Most of our respondents found themselves in wraps because they had to change with the shifting economic landscape and saw wraps as a growing business with big potential. Another interesting fact is that people who do wraps are motivated by one common thing, the look on their customers' faces when they see their freshly finished property. We've asked our participants to include their favorite projects throughout their career. Many have won awards, others were just the end result of a job well done. This year's participants are Chad Ragan, Justin Pate, Tommy Strader, Dustin Shelley, Matt Richart and Dallas Fowler, Carl Brewer, Jeni Crawford, Jon Glen and Stephen Sinek. Some of these Wrap Stars work alone, and some have a team of people helping them from start to finish to achieve their goals. Some do the job from sales to delivery, and others focus on parts such as design or installation. We hope you enjoy reading what these members of our wraps family shared with us.
