    this is about a year and a half old. They're literally miles from me.

    3M bought them out, and yes they sell wraps. 3M will deny it to the ends of the earth...
    3M also owns several traffic graphic companies that i will not mention.. as they are still denying it. Also a few striping and decal companies...

    Yes, 3M is our competition. Hate their business model.. but can't deny they have a superior product...and they know it...

    They have been selling wraps ever since they created vinyl for adding stripes & then cut letters on commercial fleet trucks well before 1983 from what I remember

    You can bet 3M does this for a purpose, one is is diversity & selling there products.

    Why does it seem like every "hot" thread is always followed by another thread of the same exact thing? I don't get it...

    I've been involved with the Original Wraps 3m project and it has been a excellent program, for my company. It has opened doors. To sell POP, signs, banners,window graphics etc. It has created a whole new customer base.

    plus not really sure how that is that it has opened a customer base due to the simple fact the customer doesnt even deal with the printer or installer. The only customer base you would be with is Original wraps because the dealer puts the order into them not you.

    I have been a diehard 3m user for years now and after seeing this it has made me question my loyalty i am looking into using avery wrap films but dont have much experience working with it....used it a few times and it seemed to wrinkle easier due to less adhesion initially...just wondering if it will be worth the switch i am currently doing artwork for a wrap for the nissan dealership i hope my story doesnt end like yours very frustrating i know

    Denver.

    You have to be taking us for someone who is mentally challenged.

    First off, I know you're lying because you never meet the customers..with the 3M wrap program -- therefore you couldn't have the opportunity to sell them "POP, signs, banners, window graphics etc"


    How do you sell them those products. Nice try 3M.


    next.
