State Fair of Texas®, Largest in the Nation, Awards SkinzWraps, Inc. With Texas Skyway® Project

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - September 27, 2007) - SkinzWraps, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SKZW), a full-service vehicle wrap company, announced today that it was awarded the contract to wrap a new ride for the State Fair of Texas® called the Texas SkyWay® in March of this year. The Texas SkyWay® is part of a multi-million dollar upgrade campaign for the State Fair of Texas®. SkinzWraps, with a documentary filmer in toe, successfully completed the project (approximately 4,500 sq feet) this summer, well in advance of the opening of the State Fair of Texas this week.

For this project, SkinzWraps used perforated vinyl with a newly released optically clear overlaminate, both which are made by Avery Dennison. The combination use of these materials ensures riders of the Texas SkyWay® will always have great views in good and inclement weather conditions.

"The State Fair of Texas® is an institution in Texas and this new ride is expected to be the most popular in 2007. Being selected as the vendor for this marathon-like project and to have successfully completed it on schedule amid all the challenges of working around the real time construction of the Texas SkyWay®, in addition to the unpredictable weather in Texas (lots of rain) brings tremendous pride, creditability and brand awareness to SkinzWraps," says Peter C. Salaverry, Chairman & CEO of SkinzWraps, Inc.
