We've always known AJ is a very talented installer, we are so lucky to have him lead our great team. This year as we continue to grow, we decided to put his skills to the test and continue to strive to be the best in the business. Earning 3M Certification isn't easy, nor is it as simple as purchasing and using their products. The installers were told before the test began that they have had installers from around the world that have been in the business for years come to take the test and fail. Locating someone with Preferred Installer status is something many major companies look for when hiring a company to do their graphics. The 3M Preferred Installer test pushes a persons skills to the limits. It is a 14 hour test that includes a written exam along with various wrap challenges.
We'd like to congratulate AJ on becoming a 4 Star 3M Preferred Installer! AJ joins an elite group of installers to pass the 3M Certification.
We just got some photos from Minnesota Inboard Water Sports of the Tank Boat on the water that we wrapped for them. We have been so excited to see this boat hit the water. Seeing this boat on the water sure makes us really happy with the design execution and the way it turned out, just perfect!
Sometimes when people think of a boat wrap they think of the crazy wild designs, but another purpose for a boat wrap is to update the boat's look with a wrap that looks like the original graphics. We have done several boats through the years, that have a stock look to them but the customer wanted to change the color or just to restore it to it's original condition. Here is a picture of the boat we just did for a customer last week. We just changed the gold color to silver and recreated the original Crestliner graphics.
Check out our new boat! We were able to pick up this 2001 Mastercraft Maristar for a good price. The body wasn't in too great of shape, so it was a perfect candidate for a wrap. We stripped the graphics off, they were already starting to peel and chip off so this was a pretty simple task. Then the hull was washed with JJV's Best to get rid of the yellowing. We filled in one of the deeper scratches with with bondo, smoothed it out and primed it. The boat was then cleaned and ready to wrap. Check out the before and after of the 2001 Maristar.
We had one happy Military Sgnt. leave yesterday with one heck of a new look for his Crestliner Fish Hawk. This boat will definitely be the talk of the lake this weekend!
