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 founded the Wrap Institute in the fall of 2013. Justin, a seasoned and passionate wrap instructor, envisioned a new way to learn about wrapping - accessible to all, without the costs and coordination of attending an in-person workshop. Scott, an entrepreneur and wrap enthusiast with a shop of his own, had the same idea of creating an online platform for learning how to wrap when it came time to train newly-hired installers. His shop's schedule was packed and it put a strain on his manpower to slow down production to catch an unseasoned installer up to speed. But there were no other options, a comprehensive training resource just didn't exist.


Justin and Scott were introduced in 2010. As they talked, they eventually realized their shared interest in developing an online learning platform for wrapping... and even better, had each purchased a domain name for the idea. One of them purchased, and the other purchased There was no debating the name, and very soon after they got to work curating video ideas and site components to build what you now know as The Wrap Institute.


The site operates with one main objective - to help improve the wrap installation industry worldwide by providing access to tips, tools and techniques that result in efficient installations, high-quality wraps and professional results. TWI is committed to delivering 100-percent neutral content so that the platform remains driven by learning, without any hidden agendas.

    #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!
