Sign & Print Scandinavia once again took place from the 5th
February 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden and was organised by Peter Ollén, a member of the FESPA Sweden Association.
The show is held in Stockholm every 2 years and during the last 3 exhibitions Sign and Print Scandinavia
has hosted the World Wrap Masters Sweden where the winner has qualified to compete in the World Wrap Masters Final 2019
. This year the decision was made to hold the competition in the middle of the exhibition and event area which resulted in each round of the competition having hundreds of people watching. The competition generated a lot of buzz and interest. The final round of the competition took place after the exhibition was closed on the last day.
Jonas Sjöström won the World Wrap Masters Sweden 2019 for a second time, originally winning the competition in 2017, then going on to win the World Wrap Masters Final 2017 located at the Global Print Expo 2017.
Jonas comments: “For me, this year’s World Wrap Masters Sweden was better organized in comparison to the competition 2 years ago. The wrapping business is gaining more and more exposure, which is great. It is evident to see what attracts the crowds and that is the competitions. Everybody loves to watch and see the wrappers in action. Both the World Wrap Masters Sweden 2019 and the Hexis Warp Battle 2019 competitions were really good. I saw some familiar faces and met some new acquaintances. Both competitions had a very friendly vibe and I have to say that the quality level of the competitions and the competitors were very high.”
Once again, Jonas will compete in the World Wrap Masters Final 2019 where he will be joined by other regional and national winners. Jonas has been wrapping since 2008 and originally started doing commercial work but now has moved on towards more custom one-off work. Jonas comments on his win: “Winning the competition was of course amazing but was also very humbling. Winning the competition reaffirms that you are at the top of the game and that your skills are valuable. I really love competing in events like this, not only do you get to test your skills but you also get to meet a lot of great people. I am really looking forward to competing at the finals in Munich and I can’t wait to meet all the guys and girls and the event. Something else I am looking forward to is cheering on some of the Swedish competitors at the World Wrap Masters Europe 2019
to attend the World Wrap Masters Europe 2019 and the World Wrap Masters Final 2019 to watch the competitors showcase their skills, network with professional wrap heroes and watch training workshop demos to learn about the technical aspects of wrapping. Please use promo code FESH904
