Unique Media Solutions comes out on top during the 3M Extreme Wrap Challenge
LONDON, ON—Last week, the winners of the 3M Extreme Wrap Challenge were announced. Over 99 fabricators and installers from signage shops across Canada, submitted their best work between April 22 and July 31 to be judged. Out of the 99, the top three contenders were chosen: Wrap Ton Char, Evil Kitty Graphics and Unique Media Solutions. 

The winning team (left to right):  John Druce, Unique Media Solutions, Cameron Blancher, installer at Mediaman Graphic Installation, Roy Druce, Unique Medial Solutions and Sam Stout, recently-retired UFC contender who presented Cameron with his championship belt.

“As part of the submission, each sign shop had to nominate an installer to compete in 3M's Extreme Wrap Challenge,” 3Ms Jacqueline Newell said. “The competition was intense.  They were very strong contenders who competed in three challenges featuring extreme texture, extreme stretch and extreme temperatures.  Each challenge featured a different prop including a bar fridge, a goalie mask and a free-standing wall, which was wrapped in intense heat.  The contenders had one hour to complete each prop and all used the same, versatile film, 3M Envision Print Wrap Film 480Cv3 because it works so well on extreme textures, for extreme stretch situations and in extreme temperatures.”
