    Eye-catching wraps are helping Cats Protection promote its work by making its fleet of vans stand out from the crowd.

    • Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity dedicated to rescuing and re-homing stray, unwanted or homeless cats and educating people about their welfare. The charity re-homes some 45,000 cats and kittens each year through a nationwide network of more than 250 volunteer-run branches and 32 adoption centres.

      Hertfordshire-based Slam Signs was asked to wrap the charity’s fleet of 51 vans and worked with Spandex, a leading supplier of innovative solutions for the sign making, graphics and display industries.

      Spandex suggested using Print Wrap Film IJ180mC from 3M for its conformability and high gloss, bubble-free finish.

      Said Dave Jorge, co-owner of Slam Signs: “We needed a wrap film that could deliver a superior aesthetic look with a great finish. This new film from 3M delivers a professional high-gloss finish and looks so impressive once installed. The wrap will also continue to look good for years to come.”

      The film incorporates Comply Adhesive from 3M that has non-visible air release channels to ensure a smooth, bubble-free finish. The advanced slideability and initial tack allows installers to move the film effortlessly across any application surface and then re-position.

      Print Wrap Film IJ180mC is available in gloss white, transparent and aluminium metallic options. This enables installers to create innovative designs, including mixing printed images with clear areas for stand-out effects and printing on metallic film for a high-tech finish.

      Gloss white was used for the Cats Protection wrap and the team at Slam Signs is now looking to use the other finishes for future projects.

      Dave said: “We’ve been so impressed by the outcome that we have decided to keep using Print Wrap Film IJ180mC from 3M as our preferred wrapping film. In fact, we’ve just used the metallic option for another job and we’ve had similarly outstanding results.”
