All classes are taught by Kenny Calman and Jon Leftik, both 3M Graphics Authorized Trainers and 3M Graphics Authorized Testers, also on staff is Steve Carney our traveling instructor. Kenny Calman is the sole inventor of the industry standard Geek Wraps Tools.
Our training courses build confidence by allowing students to experience and learn on some of the most complex areas encountered in vehicle wrapping as well as installation of trailer, wall and floor graphics. Additionally, we offer on-site testing for the 3M Preferred Graphics Installer and 3M Endorsed Vehicle Graphics Installer programs, as well as the Geek Wraps Certified Installer designation from Geek Wraps, Inc.
Our classes are small, ensuring all students are given individual attention and extensive hands-on practice. We always recommend putting the newly acquired knowledge and experience to work right away to get the most benefit from this training.

THE ORIGINAL GEEK WRAPS SCHOOL OPENSAs the popularity of wraps grows, so does the need for qualified installers. In order to fill this need, The original Geek Wraps School is created to teach students the principles of wrapping using Geek Wraps tools.
STUDIO WRAPSIn addition to vehicle wraps, demand for other types of installation increases thanks to new technology and materials available. We expand to Studio Wraps and add textured wall surface stations to instruct students in the proper installation techniques while using the proper tools for the job. Studio Wraps also produced videos for other wrap tool manufacturers and suppliers.
