Visitors to the Mactac stand at FESPA 2022 were able to see for the first time a range of innovations designed to transform performance, with a special focus for 2022 on automotive and architectural applications.

Sustainability and innovation were at the heart of the Avery Dennison FESPA 2022 stand in Berlin, offering installers insights into new sales opportunities and improvements to both environmental performance and their bottom line. A particular focus was placed on automotive and architectural segments, where key innovations have made an especially strong impact.

Ivan Tenchev from Bulgaria was crowned World Wrap Masters Champion 2022 at FESPA Global Print Expo 2022, which took place from 31 May to 3 June 2022 at Messe Berlin in Germany.

FESPA is launching Wrap Fest, a brand-new event dedicated exclusively to vehicle wrapping, vinyl installation and detailing. The event will run for the first time from 26 – 27 April 2023 at the Silverstone racing circuit, Northamptonshire, UK, the iconic home of the British Grand Prix.

The Richard Childress Racing (RCR) team has developed new-for-2022 wrap designs for its NASCAR Sprint Cup and Xfinity Series race cars – all printed by skilled RCR Graphics Center wrap technicians on the facility’s new Roland DG TrueVIS Series wide-format printer/cutters. The Graphics Center, located on RCR’s expansive campus in Welcome, North Carolina, has a staff of 10 and uses Roland DG inkjets exclusively to create wraps and graphics for its race cars as well as for the team’s various support vehicles.

Since announcing its official partnership with Roland DGA back in May, Skip Barber Racing School, the premier racing and driving school in North America, has been running its new 64-inch Roland DG TrueVIS™ VG2 series printer/cutters virtually non-stop, producing everything from custom wraps for its fleet of 75 racing and instructional cars to personalized decals for program graduates to signs and banners for its promotional events.

Brisbane-based signage and visual displays company Rapid Displays recently used Drytac Polar Premium Air White self-adhesive vinyl paired with Drytac Weathershield Gloss polymeric PVC laminate to produce an impressive and eye-catching wrap for a huge lorry trailer.

Commercial fleet and rail wraps are commissioned by their end-users generally against the expectation that the matter which the wrap promotes, branding for example, will be seen and remembered. Some studies suggest that around six-thousand pairs of eyes an hour see a wrap when the fleet asset it covers is going about its business.

Li Wen, who has been Business Director/GM responsible for Graphics North APAC since joining Avery Dennison in January 2019, has been appointed to the position of Senior Director and General Manager Graphics, in Label and Graphic Materials EMENA.
