About The Wrap Institute



Providing educational videos, resources and tools to
help you wrap in the most efficient way possible.


Our Story

Justin Pate and Scott Bechtel, founders of The Wrap Institute, were introduced in 2010. Justin, a world-renowned wrap instructor and industry innovator, envisioned a new way to learn about wrapping - accessible to all, without the cost and coordination of attending an in-person workshop. Scott, an entrepreneur and trend-setting owner of Car Wrap City in Dallas, had a similar idea of creating an online resource for wrap-related education when training new installers started to put a strain on his shop's production. Both men recognized that a comprehensive training resource for the wrap industry just didn't exist.


What began as a conversation about their common passion quickly evolved into a mission to develop a cutting-edge, digitally-based instructional platform with a global reach. The Wrap Institute was launched in 2013 and in the past six years, has become the authority on industry standards, tools and techniques. If it’s essential or relevant to your wrap business, it’s featured on The Wrap Institute!


Our members live and work in more than 100 countries around the world. They include business owners, installers, independent contractors, detailers, sign makers, materials suppliers, wrap tool and equipment manufacturers, technical school students, fleet managers, marketing directors, and of course, car and truck enthusiasts!


Now with more than 1,650 instructional videos, The Wrap Institute offers those in the wrap world a convenient, economical, and professional means to improve their knowledge base and increase their skill set. Not only are learning resources available online 24/7, TWI also regularly offers live training and demonstrative events throughout the globe. Having filmed in North America, South America, Australia, Europe, and Asia, the numbers of professionals influenced by The Wrap Institute is truly beyond measure.


The Wrap Institute member base has developed into a thriving wrap community over the past six years - with members who jump in and help one another in the Forum, who are focused on actively learning by asking questions and interacting with video content, and who encourage one another -- and by doing so raise the professionalism and innovation of the entire industry up. Which is exactly what Scott and Justin envisioned so many years ago!

    Every time I watch one of these videos it changes the way I wrap. The best service to learn easy install and really clever tricks. @wrapinstitute KyleKyle Menard Wrap Jax
    #cantstopwontstop Many people ask me for tips and tricks and how I do this or that.. The answer is simple @wrapinstitute @justinpatewrapper took me from a window tinter PPF installer to noppswraps. Its worth it. Buy a 6 month subscription and become a sponge. That's what I did. #Rippaint #eatsleepwrap #neverstoplearning Nopps Wraps
    The Wrap Institute is a powerful tool; we use it on a regular basis. Just recently we had a job doing our first chrome wrap on a 911 Porsche race car. We understood that chrome does not install quite like regular vinyl and were very concerned how we would complete this job without wasting hundreds of dollars in chrome. We went straight to The Wrap Institute website and looked for videos using chrome vinyl. The information available helped us to complete our job without any major issues. Thank you Justin, keep the videos coming. HeathHeath Asman Grafxolution
    This wrap was a nice challenge as the customer was very skeptical. No whitening, no wrinkles and a nice clean application. We parked it in front of our shop after we were done and 4 new clients came to us thanks to this wrap - it's a money/client magnet and a great affirmation for us. With the great tutorials from TWI we did it and we did it right! JoseJose Suastez SD Media
    You guys are doing a great job and my knowledge base has grown exponentially since joining TWI as a premium member, which has given me the confidence to go after larger and more profitable jobs. TWI has helped grow my business from a five figure to a six figure annual sales company in less than a year. Many thanks to The Wrap Institute from a very happy customer!

    I’m so happy I found your website, it has made our installs better than ever and we can’t get enough at our shop. Thank you Wrap Institute for bringing Justin into our shop through your website. JonJon Crown
    I recently joined The Wrap Institute and I think it is really great! Being from Australia there is not much help and training around so I have found it very useful! …. Thank you heaps! …. I appreciate it and your website it is great! LukeLuke Bentley SignPro
    I really like The Wrap Institute and I believe in it 100%. At our shop, we use TWI ourselves in our Monday meetings where we tend to take one or two videos and watch them together and then talk about it in a group. It gets the conversation started and new ideas pop up. Keep up the good work! SimónSimón Polakof City Sign
    Not only has The Wrap Institute been EXTREMELY helpful for me as someone new to this industry, it has saved me literally thousands of dollars because I don't have to pay another expert to teach me the techniques that you cover in your videos! JoeJoe Nasr COVER UP Solution
    Without TWI videos I would not be here. I wouldn't have approval from this industry and I can't thank Justin and you guys enough for what you've done for me. DerekDerek Rewuki
    Before I joined The Wrap Institute, it would take me one year to get a new installer up to the level required for me to be comfortable with allowing them to wrap on their own. Since I started using TWI videos, I have seen this training time cut in half. BradBrad Rapone TradeWraps
    It's a wonderful and valuable investment for my shop. SeanSean Tomlin Designer Wraps
