3M Enters Three-Year Collaboration Agreement with Wrapmate

 

St. Paul, Minn (May 14, 2020) – Wrapmate, an end-to-end digital platform for graphics projects, has entered a three-year global collaboration agreement with 3M Commercial Solutions to help businesses improve their marketability within the print, signage and vehicle graphics industry. This collaborative agreement is an expansion of the initial six-month collaboration first announced in September of 2019. It will provide customers with a one-stop shop network of professionals and resources on a global scale.


“This collaborative agreement creates an approachable way for businesses to consider adding graphics to their marketing toolbox,” said Adrian Cook, marketing manager, 3M Commercial Solutions Division. “It also benefits Wrapmate Pros and 3M Certified and Preferred Graphics Installers by potentially increasing their customer base.”

 

Wrapmate’s innovative technology includes an augmented reality (AR) app that allows business owners to visualize their vehicle graphic mockup on a 3D digital image placed virtually in their driveway or office parking lot. Additionally, Wrapmate has developed an online price calculator specifically for vehicle graphics with real-time pricing coming in the near future.

 

“Getting the client to see what a wrap would look like is one of the hardest things in this industry: to pitch the wrap without seeing the wrap,” said Kyle Perfetto, sales manager at PUREBLIND Wraps and Graphics, a Colorado-based graphic shop that has grown its business using Wrapmate.

 

“Our platform streamlines customer pain points by aggregating the graphics process – from design to estimate to installation – onto one platform,” said Chris Loar, Wrapmate Founder and CEO. “By collaborating with 3M, we’re now able to execute graphics projects at the highest level, ultimately increasing the marketability of everyone involved, from the business owner to the installer to the graphic manufacturer.”

3M Collaborates with Wrapmate to Provide Print-Ready Customers to Graphic Professionals

Exclusive collaboration simplifies customer throughput and builds awareness of brand impact

ST PAUL, Minn. – September 10, 2019 – Business owners today are faced with a wide variety of challenges to stand out from the competition, including the growing emphasis on creating a recognizable and impactful visual identity. To support customers in achieving their vision, graphic professionals spend precious time creating vehicle wrap design mockups to help determine the look and feel that will best tell the brand story. This can be a time-consuming process that also runs the risk of creating design mockups that don’t always come to fruition.

3M is excited to announce a strategic collaboration with Wrapmate to help businesses improve their brand’s visibility through high quality vehicle graphics and ultimately help graphic professionals find more customers.

Wrapmate is an online platform where business owners can visualize their brand on a vehicle by simply using their business’s website address. Wrapmate uses the URL to scan the website for branded visuals such as logos and imagery and within seconds, a vehicle wrap design is created. This service helps business owners understand what a vehicle wrap would look like in a 3D environment and builds excitement by offering tools for the user to better understand the impact that vehicle graphics have on the awareness of their business.

“Our innovative technology combined with 3M’s innovative film products allow for a great dynamic between our two businesses,” said Chris Loar, Founder & CEO of Wrapmate. “3M is the perfect fit for a strategic collaboration. We couldn’t be more excited about working together to grow the graphics industry.”

Business owners can also take the next step of bringing the visual to life by working with Wrapmate, who will interface directly with experienced graphic professionals within the 3M network to complete the job. 3M™ Certified Graphics Installation Companies and 3M™ Preferred Graphics Installers within the Wrapmate Pro network can execute these print-ready jobs and get the opportunity to work with new customers to further build their brands.

“The collaboration between 3M and Wrapmate opens the door to new business opportunities for graphic professionals and saves them time so they can focus on creating impactful transformations,” said Troy Kilfoyl of 3M Commercial Solutions Division. “By joining forces with Wrapmate, we are hoping to provide a creative solution to make the vehicle wrap design process easier for graphic professionals and more engaging for businesses everywhere.” Graphic manufacturers can now spend more time focusing on doing great work and less time worrying about customer acquisition.
