Get started now so you’ll be ready on Monday when a total eclipse of the sun will occur and can be viewed as the path of totality cuts across the United States from Oregon to South Carolina. For the best viewing, you’ll have to be within the 60 to 70-mile wide path, pictured here.

Remember: Looking directly at the sun in any manner can cause damage to your eyes. Follow the directions in the video above carefully.

Now Available: An Easy and Versatile Film for Windows & More

For customers who need glare-free, interchangeable graphics for windows, acrylic or even cool-temperature metal surfaces, LexJet WR Window Graphic Film marries the durability of a polypropylene film with a high-performance, water-resistant adhesive that’s reusable and repositionable.

Your customers will love the versatility they can get from their temporary, opaque graphics, whether they’re installed on storefronts or cooler doors. The state-of-the-art, low-tack adhesive formulation makes it easy for graphics to be reused or repositioned without leaving a residue behind, and this film keeps on sticking even when coolers start to “sweat.”

The easy, no-mess installation works with simple wet or dry techniques, and the film is compatible with aqueous and latex inks for applications ranging from grocery and retail stores to banks, gas stations and more.

“This is another excellent addition to the LexJet line of window graphic options,” says Dean Lambert, LexJet Vice President. “LexJet WR Window Graphic Film goes up easily and provides superior image quality on a film that’s more opaque and more durable than other window options.”

The Go-To Matte Canvas for High-End Art Prints

Over the years, customers have turned, time and again, to LexJet Sunset Reserve Matte Canvas, to produce vibrant, fine-art and photo-realistic graphics on a smooth matte canvas finish that offers a high-quality, lasting image.

The poly-cotton blend and neutral-white finish deliver consistent imaging for a variety of commercial graphics, as well as fine-art and photographic reproductions. LexJet Sunset Reserve Matte Canvas was developed to produce great colors without optical brighteners.

“I loved the texture of that for art prints; I like the tooth it has on it,” Andy Wredberg of AW Artworks said in this post.

It’s also been a long-time favorite for Hawaii-based Chromaco, thanks to its wide color gamut and Dmax that deliver bright and bold art reproductions. Adding Sunset Gloss Coating protects the canvas for gallery wraps that have become increasingly popular, Chromaco says. Check out their work here.

Customer favorite LexJet Sunset Reserve Matte Canvas also has a new lower price. Watch the video above for details, or go here to learn more.
