He has been extensively trained and tested by 3M and has met the 3M standard of care and knowledge for wrapping vehicles. He has also been trained and installed numerous building, wall, floor and concrete wrap applications.   Being a 3M Preferred Installer demonstrates his commitment to providing you with the best graphics installation training available. Why trust your learning and knowledge to someone less skilled and perhaps lacks the expertise in the industry and may start you off with learning incorrect ways to do things, when you can be guaranteed that a 3M Preferred Graphics Installer, who has been professionally accredited, will teach you to do it right. 

By way of background here is a quick Bio on Charlie Halpin.


Charlie (“Wrapman”) Halpin started out in the graphic industry with a t-shirt and sticker company in Banff Alberta in his 20s. He moved to Ontario and started a sign company in Thornhill called Special Fx Signworks, eventually moving it to an office in Mississauga. He acquired Canada 3000 Airlines and Rogers as clients in the 90s wherein he installed all types of cut and silk-screened graphics on trucks, cars and aircraft. In 1991 Charlie raced the Baja 1000 and finished 24th overall. Charlie sold Special FX Signworks in 2001 and was hired as a marketing manager for Harley Davidson Canada. In 2006 he started and went full time as a specialist in designing, producing and installing quality custom vehicle wraps. The company today is called vWrapz Inc. and still uses the same website Charlie created 10 years earlier. vWrapz operated a shop in Vaughan for 5 years but has since changed to mobile service where Charlie works from a shop on his property in Coldwater, Ontario. All in all Charlie has over 25 years in the sign industry with the last 10 of those years as a custom vehicle wrap specialist.
