Chad Parrish, instructeur installateur certifié Avery Dennison

Chad Parrish | GPA Grafik | Avery Dennison | Formation Wrap | Habillage de véhicule

Chad Parrish is installer/trainer and owner of Graphiti Wraps, a large format installation company. He started his career in 1997 for a large format printing company, doing everything from production to installation. He worked there for roughly 9 years. At that time, his love for installation grew, which is when Graphiti Wraps was formed in 2006. Till this day, he travels the country doing subcontracted install work ranging from vehicles, walls, to banners.

He carries most if not all the installer certifications offered by the manufacturers, including being a PPF certified installer for XPEL. He’s recently been brought on board with Avery Dennison and their training program and he is honored to be able to share his success/failures stories and techniques and installation processes with those who are looking to grow the industry.

Chad teaches the UGIS system (Universal Graphics Installation System) an efficient car wrapping system created by Justin Pate, founder of the Wrap institute, among other tips and tricks, in workshops around the world. The courses he gives are officially approved by Avery Dennison in North America.

During this three-day course, you will learn how to prepare the vehicles for wrapping, the main tools you need, wrapping strategies, some common mistakes to avoid, design and vinyl installation tricks and basic business tips for the field. This is vital training for anyone looking to improve their installation skills.

Using UGIS, you will be able to comfortably and quickly wrap almost any vehicle by yourself in under five hours. Some vehicles, like vans, can be wrapped more quickly (approx. two hours).
