National signage and graphics company Signs By Tomorrow announced the top five finalists in its nationwide “Imagine It…We Can WRAP It!” contest being held in conjunction with 3M Commercial Graphics and United Application Standards Group (UASG).
The five finalists were selected from a pool of dozens of entries by a panel of judges from Signs By Tomorrow, 3M, and UASG. The top five were chosen for the stories behind the entries as well as for originality, the condition of the object to be wrapped, and safety standards.
