Tuesday Only: 30% Off LexJet Simple Flo Wrap Vinyl

LexJet’s Simple Flo Wrap Vinyl is the answer when you need a repositionable adhesive-backed vinyl for wrapping trucks, buses or walls. The 2.4-mil glossy-white vinyl has an air-egress release liner that enables air to escape as the graphics are installed, eliminating trapped air pockets that cause wrinkles and bubbles, and because it’s repositionable, misaligned graphics are easily repaired.

LexJet’s Simple Flo Wrap Vinyl works well on a wide variety of printers that use solvent, low-solvent and UV-curable inks, and offers substantial cost savings over cast-vinyl solutions.

“Simple Flo Wrap Vinyl delivers a superior output of colors and can be used on multiple platforms,” says Keith Bernard from Road Signs sign shop in Sarasota, Fla., who installed the giant wall mural using the media on LexJet’s trade show booth at ISA Sign Expo. “It’s easy to install and remove, and it’s perfect for paneling since you can’t see through the overlaps in the seams.”

Product highlights:

  • High-performance, opaque calendared vinyl
  • Gloss finish for detailed prints and colors that pop
  • Ultra-conformable when heated for bubble-free application
  • Removable up to one year and permanent up to seven years with LexJet Simple Flo Wrap Gloss UV Laminate
  • Ideal for box truck wraps, temporary wall murals and point-of-purchase signage

Whole Foods Takes a Fresh Approach on In-Store Signage

If you’re in the printing business, you likely go into a store like Whole Foods and notice the signage right away. Posters and banners and point-of-sale displays jump out at you for their crisp colors, clean design and effective placement.

Plotter_BannerFor Whole Foods’ South Region, that’s managed and designed by a four-person Metro Artist Team, the first of its kind for the company.

“We’re responsible for eight stores in Atlanta and two other south region stores, and we support the rest of the south region,” says Justin Kendall. “We handle a lot of the graphic design and the printing of banners, posters and additional marketing collateral. The stores change very frequently, so there’s constantly a stream of printing going on.”

To get the job done, the team operates two HP DesignJet Z6200 printers as well as a latex printer and Xerox printers. Many of the stores in the region have artists and printers, too, but the Metro team pumps out much of the work.

“The HP DesignJet Z6200 is an easy-to-use printer that they can do a multitude of different things with,” says LexJet’s Matt Bailey, who works daily with the Whole Foods team. “They need to get really specific colors, like the Whole Foods green. You can’t just run that with any CMYK printer. They have to be able to achieve the exact logo color. To do that, the DesignJet is a good way to go.”

IMG_3445Bailey offers technical support and regularly recommends the right media for the wide variety of jobs the team dreams up. Their go-to media options include LexJet TOUGHcoat Water-Resistant Polypropylene, LexJet Promo-Point Decals andLexJet TOUGHcoat ThriftyBanner, to name a few.

“We’ll tell Matt the issue we’re having, and he’ll give us a suggestion and pricing, so we know what to expect,” says Whole Foods’ Katie Lawter. “If the product doesn’t work out, we can send it back, so there’s no fear in trying something new.”

Some recent projects included a kit for a case wine sell, with banners, posters, hanging circles, bar toppers and more; as well as a project that included combining the use of the stores’ chalkboards along with images of employees printed on the wide-format DesignJet (pictured above).

“The artists are incredibly inventive,” says Kim Calloway. “The different stores come up with new ways to create cool stuff and new ways to use the printers, and then they share the best practices with other stores, too.”

Partnering with LexJet’s technical expertise, extensive media options and attentive customer service is key to keeping the operation on track.

“LexJet has very fast customer service and tracking information on our orders,” Calloway says. “We choose our products with a lot of help from the reps at LexJet, and the service we get every day is exemplary.”

For LexJet, ISA Sign Expo Truly Was a Really Big Show

We’ve heard a lot of big numbers being thrown around about this year’s ISA International Sign Expo. This year’s attendance topped 20,044, which is the largest crowd for ISA in 10 years, and the largest that the Orlando show has ever seen.

LexJet was one of 600 exhibitors in the 200,000-square-foot trade show floor. Also, our 50-foot-by-24-foot carnival themed wall graphic, complete with Ferris wheel and roller coaster printed on LexJet Simple Flo Wrap Vinyl, was the largest mural ever displayed inside the ISA show.

Versatile & Easy: LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric Is a Customer Favorite

When we bring a new product to market, our dream is that our customers will love it and find lots of ways to grow their business with it. But when we launched LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric in August 2013 and LexJet Solvent Print-N-Stick Fabric last year, we had no idea just how popular they would become and how creative our customers could be.

Our two versions of LexJet Print-N-Stick allow printers to use aqueous, latex, solvent or eco-solvent inks to create vivid graphics on a tightly woven, bright white, water-resistant satin cloth that has the perfect adhesive that can easily be applied, repositioned and removed without leaving any residue behind.
