Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions announced that veteran wrap and graphics industry professional Blake Madsen has joined the Avery Dennison team as one of its wrap trainers. Madsen’s first class is May 1-2 at Warrior Wraps in Las Vegas.
Madsen is an accomplished professional in the wrap and graphics industry, with more than 15 years of experience in the field. He began his career in 2006, working in sign and print shops mastering the art of vehicle wraps.
Madsen’s passion for his craft led him to compete in numerous wrap competitions, where he consistently placed at the top of his class. He holds seven industry certifications including becoming Avery Dennison certified in 2016. A year later in 2017, Madsen founded his company, Brand Command, which specializes in commercial vehicle branding.
“We are excited to have Blake join our team,” says Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions marketing associate Graeme McKnight. “His expertise in training and knowledge of the industry will only help to grow our program to new heights. Blake joins a team of experienced wrap installers to provide training for both our wrap training classes as well as our certification exams.”
Avery Dennison offers two hands-on wrap training courses—Full Print Digital Wrapping Class and Supreme Wrapping Film Class—and a certification exam that together provide a full coverage platform of success for any wrap shop or freelance installer, according to the company. All skill levels are welcome to participate in these training sessions.
