    We are putting together a contest to coincide with our new website and I was wondering what prize would you be happy to win as a wrap/vinyl installer?

    I see you edited it to wrap installers. I would say a installation kit that includes hip tool bag, squeegees, 3M air release tool, 3M knifeless tape, 3M primer, Olfa knife, Olfa sissors (small ones), avery wrap gloves and a blow torch that has the long cord and handheld trigger. Maybe even one of those small tool boxes you sit on that has wheels to scoot around.

    Maybe one of those long heaters I've seen that you use to wrap bumpers

    Awesome ideas! Thank you... We have also been told the POD steamer and also the 3M Roller tool kit, would you also agree with that?

    I don't have any experience with those tools. The roller I don't think I would use because I would feel more comfortable using my thumb with the Avery glove.

    Avery gloves don't last use the WrapGlove instead, a BillCollector.
    , NT Cartridge knife, Avery Flextreme, 3M CPA-2, MonkeyStrips and MonkeyTails, GeekWraps Squeeges, Stinel Heatgun with IR temp sensore....

    I'd say nice tool carts. Or rolls of solid color wrap vinyl. Employers should be providing everything else like torches/squeegees for them already.
    I know when we got our installers their own carts they really liked them and personalized them right away.

    Good squeegees that are designed for wrapping
    kneepads / low profile roller to save the knees

    This would be mostly geared towards shops / independents, but carts would be a great idea!

    Like 2B said above the low profile rollers would be nice also. Yellotools also have some nice stuff that most installers don't have.

    Yellotools, Image 1 Impact, and 44 Tools may be willing to sponsor the contest if you have enough interest/coverage...

    All three of them have promoted events at trade shows

    Any tools that would be won would be exciting in my opinion.
