WrapGlove© – Revolutionizes an industry

For those in the vehicle wrap industry, our wrap gloves are basic, standard, critical parts of our daily job. When we do not have a glove close by it feels like we are missing our knife, squeegee or torch… simply not acceptable. What started years ago at APE Wraps® has morphed and grown into a worldwide phenomenon spanning countries, film brands, language and organizations. Gloves of multiple sizes, colors and brands continue to spread throughout the industry as a vital part of the wrappers kit.

The ability to protect the film while simultaneously turning our hands into an infinitely conformable squeegee has, quite simply, revolutionized the way wrappers world-wide perform at top levels.

Believe it or not, originally, the glove was not available for the general public and was intended for only internal use at APE Wraps®. However, it didn’t take long for industry friends and partners to start asking for them. After huge efforts by the family in identifying all the qualities necessary for a glove to perform as a durable, high quality tool the Original WrapGlove® was born. Today with more technology than ever before, the WrapGlove® brand has become an industry standard to decal installers worldwide. If you ask any professional installer “What are the top three tools in their Pouch”? One of them will most likely be the WrapGlove®.

The WrapGlove® was invented by Wastegate Technologies, Inc. (WTI). The WTI Company first and foremost is known for their custom show cars, concourse quality builds in the automotive industry. The family identified the need for gloves back in the 60’s and had gloves made for the use of protecting their concourse cars surfaces during and after the builds. Fast forward to 2007 where the use of the glove during the testing of some ultra conformable PVC films we found the glove had unintended attributes/qualities, by allowing the hand to glide smoothly across the surface of the film, unlike a bare hand that would drag and gouge the media. Fast forward 2 more years and WTI had produced the glove that in essence, is what our customers know today as the WrapGlove® Brand.

UASG Installers – 3M Certified Graphic Installation Company – ON THE MAP

When it comes to establishing standards in professional vinyl installations, the UASG is the United States first such organization in existence.  Shops with the United Application Standard Group’s mark of approval have invested years of experience and countless hours of practice to prove that they have a “a high level of professionalism, a proven track record, and a high level of hands-on installation skill”.  The best way to get information on the specifics of the UASG is to visit their site at http://www.uasg.org.

All of the UASG installers have been listed by their respective addresses on the map.  You can now run a search by Zip Code / Postal Code, filter by the UASG drop-down option and see every UASG shop within 50 miles.  Easy to find them and easy to use their skills.

 

 

Beta Launch for WrapperMapper.com

Wow, all I can say is this is rolling fast, fast, fast.  What was initially an idea to help myself find other professional wrappers has turned into a sizable project.

So, the whole concept here is to just make it a lot easier for professional wrap installers to be found.  We all typically use maps when looking for potential vendors and it just made sense to put an actual map together to solve the problem.  If a print house in New York needs to find a 3M Certified Wrap Installation Company in Baton Rouge Louisiana… now they can…  easy… in about 5 seconds.

If a local franchise in Miami FL has just received a box of graphics, and they have no idea what to do with it, they can search their Zip Code and find all of the PDAA Master Certified guys within 50 miles… in about 5 seconds.

Wrap Installers, Print Houses, Sign Shops, Print Providers and end wrap customers can all use WrapperMapper.com to more easily connect with the guys who know what they are doing.
