3M Preferred Graphics Installer Identity Guidelines

THE FOLLOWING ARE EXCERPTS FROM THE 3M PREFERRED GRAPHICS INSTALLER IDENTITY GUIDELINES. Many businesses in the GTA are claiming on their websites they are  3M Certified OR they are a 3M Preferred Installer OR a 3M Certified company.  If they will blatantly lie on the front page of their website, imagine the false information you may be told. Basically a 3M Preferred Installer is the best in the business. It is extremely hard to become one so we do not take it lightly when a company professes to have 3M Preferred Installers when they don’t. Any company not following the policies and structure as set out in the 3M Guidelines and who are clearly not qualified and listed as a 3M Preferred Graphic Installer on the 3M posted list, is in clear violation of the guidelines and will be identified and dealt with directly by 3M.It is an offense to make false presentations of this designation and they are in clear violation of The Competition Act.  The best way to satisfy yourself if the person claiming to hold this accreditation is indeed qualified by 3M please go to this LINK . IF YOU DO NOT SEE THEIR COMPANY NAME AND THE PERSON’S NAME HOLDING THE DESIGNATION ON THE LIST THEY DO NOT HOLD THE 3M PREFERRED GRAPHIC INSTALLER DESIGNATION.

3M Preferred Graphics Installer Identity Guidelines as set out by 3M

The 3M Preferred Graphics Installer designation should be associated with the name of the person(s) who holds this designation in all informational media, including websites and brochures. Adding a link to a list of your 3M Preferred Graphics Installer names behind the Emblem or another location is acceptable.

Recommendations for identifying Preferred Installers:

I am accredited as a 3M Preferred Graphics Installer.

  • Charlie Halpin is a 3M Preferred Graphics Installer.
  • Charlie Halpin of vWrapz Inc is a 3M Preferred Graphics Installer.
  • We employ 3M Preferred Graphics Installers. Click this link for the names of these accredited professionals. (Provide a link to individuals’ names.)
  • We contract only 3M Preferred Graphics Installers. Click this link for the names of these accredited professionals. (Provide a link to individuals’ names.)

 Using the Designation in Your Communications

 Any graphics installer who has passed the 3M Preferred Graphics Installer test may use the designation 3M Preferred Graphics Installer in promotional body copy.

 What Not To Do

Do not refer to yourself or your company as a producer or installer of Scotchprint® Graphics unless you are also a current Scotchprint® Graphics Authorized Manufacturer—a unique designation available only from 3M.

  • Do not use the word “certified” in connection with your status as a 3M Preferred Graphics Installer.
  • Do not make any claim or relationship about your company being a 3M Certified Graphics Installer–this designation is an individual person’s designation only.
  • Do not infer that your credentials as a professional installer affect your ability to extend any 3M warranty to the customer.
  • Do not imply that you are a preferred 3M vendor.

 Terms of Usage

 The Designation and Emblem may be used as specified in this guideline only by the individual installers who have current 3M Preferred Graphics Installer credentials. Installers will submit to 3M for approval every instance of use of the 3M Preferred Graphics Installer emblem. Any variation to these guidelines must also be approved by 3M.

WRAPPING 101 by Ben Bieber, Professional Installer

What every potential customer needs to know.

 Dollar for dollar there is no cheaper way to get your message across to consumers than a commercial wrap. Rather a bold statement considering the significant outlay of money a wrap requires especially over a number or fleet of vehicles.
Advertising people use the term “per impression”. That is the benchmark of what an ad will cost divided by the number of people that see it. Years ago the higher that rate was the more money you had to pay to get it. This fueled the per month price wars for larger ads in the yellow pages or newspapers or billboards in higher traffic areas than say a country road. All of that since the invention of the internet is now (or soon will be) obsolete.
So where is the smart money spent? As cities grow and urban sprawl continues there is a greater dependence on vehicles for commuting. The average commute time in the GTA is now over 80 minutes round trip with the main roads averaging about 2 million commuters per day. Imagine having a captive audience for 80 minutes a day, 5 days a week seeing your ad NOT NEXT TO 20 OF YOUR COMPETITORS.
If we take the average life expectancy of a wrap (5 to 7 years), multiply that by the number of days per year on the road times the average number of daily commuters you will encounter, and divide that number into the initial cost of your wrap you will come up with a number 100 times lower than what you spent on your morning coffee on your way to work today.
So what is the only issue in this equation? Traffic will get worse we know that, affecting commute times and increasing numbers of vehicles on the roads; that’s a given. Historical forms of costly advertising like phone books, newspapers, radio, television are all on the way out, great for us as well. The only issue is THE WRAP ITSELF.
If you don’t get that 5 to 7 year life expectancy from your wrap the whole formula fails and your cost “per impression” can double, triple, etc. So how do you go about ensuring that the money you spend is going to give you that return on investment you are counting on?
Specialists. Specialists bring to the table what others can’t. Specialists do one thing and one thing only and are the best in their field. In any field whether it be wraps or construction or medicine when you need the absolute best you go see them.
Every Canadian has seen and knows Mike Holmes. He gets on that TV and day after day he repeats himself over and over, HIRE THE PROFESSIONALS. We sit and watch as the poor unsuspecting homeowner recants the tail of how horrible the contractor was and what they did to them and we hear the same things being repeated by every one of them,
“We hired the guy with the lowest bid”.
“We didn’t question it”
“We didn’t check references.”
“We paid him CASH.”
We sit there and we lecture them thru the TV saying well what did you expect? There’s a lot of shady unregulated guys out there with white vans and hammers claiming to be contractors and you let them mess with the largest investment you have!” And for every 1 person that makes it onto that show I can imagine there are a thousand just like them that are in the exact same boat.
So the question now becomes why would you allow someone to mess around with the SECOND largest investment you have, your vehicles? And how do you go about protecting yourself from the unregulated unqualified shops out there that will take your money and run? You hire the specialists. You educate yourself, you check references and you ASK QUESTIONS. Sounds familiar right?

Charlie Halpin Insists on Quality Work

The old saying “Garbage In, Garbage Out” is a saying  I often think to myself  when I see a poorly designed vehicle wrap or graphic job. Over the 25 years that I have been in the advertising and marketing industry I have seen all too often poorly designed and installed graphics. Whether it is a sign or a vehicle wrap, bad ones are out there.  I feel this is due to too many businesses cutting corners with products, manpower, principles, work ethics and attitude and especially “not paying attention to details”.  The useage of inferior art files can mean the difference between a bright, crisp dynamic wrap or a blurred and pixalated inferior wrap.  If the designer does not insist on quality pictures or art files than the results will be reflected in the final output.  I have seen many wraps where the wrap failed at the design stage because someone didn’t care.  A designer accepted the art files they were given and produced the wrap based on those pictures.  Hence “Garbage In, Garbage Out”.

There are a few extremely important steps that are crucial to a successful wrap:

Design stage:

Working in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop I offer highly produced art work. I insist on quality pictures and it is imperative I receive pictures from our clients that are of high resolution.  I  will NOT produce an inferior wrap due to inadequate and poor quality pictures. I will work the design, sweating the details until I am 100% convinced of  the quality of the final output before I go to print.  I ensure the right message gets built into each design, suited to a specific business. I am serious about vehicle wraps and I give my personal guaranty that you will get the most creative and highest quality wrap for your hard earned dollars.


We only use  3M  vinyl for our wraps.  We do not cut corners to keep our costs down.  With using premium vinyl we can offer a 1 year install warranty.  We use quality production equipment.  Our printer is a new Mimaki 54″ digital printer which uses Mimaki quality inks producing vibrant 4 color digital prints.


As I am a 3M Preferred Installer I offer highly skilled and trained installation services.

From the beginning of the project to the day the customer drives their vehicle away, I offer each client exceptional customer service and make myself available to answer any questions the client may have.  Because all we do is custom vehicle wraps,  my company strives to be the best at what we do. Let me put my experience to work for you. I am the real wrap-man. Call us now.

Vehicle Wrapping by vWrapz Inc. – ROI
