WRAPA LOT Specialty Filmz
Kevin Lash grew up in the Bay Area. Moving to Sacramento turn out to be a great decision for Kevin. Taking advantage of local resources provided by community centers, he was able to learn how to do screen printing and embroidering. Kevin was introduced to car wrapping at a trade show. He now has his own business (WRAPA LOT SPECIALTY FILMZ) which eventually lead to him working with GreenTech to wrap a few vehicles. WRAPA LOT SPECIALTY FILMZ does standard and commercial vehicle wraps, car window tints, paint protection, window decals, boat wraps, wall wraps and residential and commercial window films. Kevin is currently focused on gaining more business to be able to give back to the community.
