Teaching Wrap Classes in Atlanta next week at the SGIA Expo

I am leaving in just a few minutes to fly to Atlanta. Hope to catch a little World Series action when I land (Let’s Go Royals). After that it’s setup time for the wrap training. We have almost 80 people signed up for the two different courses Shane and I will be teaching, Wrap Like A Pro and Extreme Wrapping. Classes are Tue-Fri on the show floor.

On behalf of #SGIA #PDAA #RobIvers #CoreGraphics #ShaneCourtney we would like to give a huge thanks and shout out to our amazing sponsors for this year’s classes; #3M #3M1080 #3MIJ480 #Image1Impact #WrapGloves – You guys rock! Thanks for supporting education in our industry.

I hope to see lots of you there – let’s all take our wrap game to even higher levels.

Restyler Wrap Ramps

Ask Santa for these and save on back surgeries!


We used these at #WrapsCon 2015 in Indy at the #PaintIsDead Wrap Contest. They were amazing and all of the competitors loved them. You can work on the sides of car much easier without bending over. And even though, they are not doing it in this photo, the center section between the wheels slides out so you can sit on it for the lower parts like the bumpers and between the wheels. It’s also great to stand on to do the roof!

I have just added this product to my store at the low price of $1,549 plus shipping. And for those of you who want to buy one from me next week at #SGIA I will be running a show special for just $1,477 plus shipping.

We will be using one in the wrap training area at the #SGIAExpo in Atlanta. So stop by and see one in action. Shane and I will be there teaching classes all day, everyday of the show. We may even have 1 or 2 spots left in my advanced class, Extreme Wrapping, but on Tuesday only (the day before the show, Nov. 3).

Hit the Pause Button


The last year and a half have been amazing – on the personal side of my life. My daughter received her Master’s degree and started on her Doctorate. My son graduated from Medical School, got married and is doing five years of Surgical Residency.

Powering Down to Power Up

On the business side, I’ve been going strong for 37 years. I haven’t spent as much time planning as I should have. For too long, the business has been running me and not the other way around. I’ve been reactive instead of proactive. My plan is to hit the pause button and slow things down a little. Not to take a vacation (although that sounds pretty good), but rather to reflect and plan my next business steps.

It’s Never Too Late

I’ve gone through many personal changes lately; eating healthier, starting to work out and having an empty nest (again). Business is also changing and changing faster than ever before. There’s a need to learn a new way of doing things. I’m excited about the opportunities to learn, to share and to grow. One thing I’ve learned, especially the last 18 months, it’s never too late to change.

Help me, help YOU

I’m devoting most of the rest of 2015 to creating new content for this website. The plan is to take a fresh look at ways to bring you useful information;

  • blogs
  • e-books
  • online courses
  • podcasts
  • webinars
  • videos

The goal is to make it easy, fun and affordable to learn how to apply all types of vinyl graphics better and faster. If you have any specific questions, problems or issues, even tools, you’d like addressed – add them in the comments below or send me an email.

With this years’ “You Choose” format, you pick whether you want to come for one, two or all three days.

Three exciting days of car wrap training led by Rob Ivers in which you’ll learn the tips, tricks, tools and techniques the pros use to be successful. Each day will be more advanced, building on the previous day(s). So whether you’re brand new to the wrapping game, been installing vinyl for several years (but not so much wraps) or you’ve wrapped dozens of vehicles – this class has something for you. The beauty of it is you get to choose, you can come to any or all of the three days. Beginners are encouraged to take at least the first two days.
