Finish Soft Signage Fabrics Like the Pros

With the heavy retail season upon us, you’re likely getting more requests for fabric banners and displays these days. Retail outlets often prefer the elegant, lightweight drape that fabric signage offers, as opposed to vinyl, for instance, for banners, hanging signage, table skirts and more.

LexJet Poly Select Medium used for hanging posters.

However, when it comes to fabric signage, finishing needs can vary from fabric to fabric, since some cut cleanly and others may fray. Watch the video above to learn how to test your fabric, and which ones can simply be trimmed with a knife versus those that need a tool such as a heating knife to keep the weave from unraveling.

We offer a wide range of printable fabrics for a variety of print technologies:

For Aqueous

HP Light Fabric used for retail banners.

For Latex

For Solvent

A popular finishing option for printed fabric signage is pole pockets. Watch the video below for a fast, easy and professional result:

Latex-printable Fabric to the Rescue as Fundraiser Photo Backdrop

Every year, hundreds of guests attend one of the largest and most glamorous events in Sarasota, Fla., the Wine, Women & Shoes luncheon and fashion show. Earlier this year, organizers reached out to us for assistance with its photography area backdrop.

They needed a lightweight fabric that could hang elegantly without wrinkles or creases across a 19-foot area. Another challenge: It needed to be printed with deep black inks that really offset three logos at the top.

A Brave New World for SunTrust Park

When the Atlanta Braves moved into their new home, SunTrust Park, this April, they had a lot of blank walls to fill in offices and throughout the stadium. They turned to the corporate design experts at A-R-T & Associates in Atlanta to produce a one-of-a-kind series of canvas prints.

The artwork, supplied from the Braves’ archives, included a variety of baseball and ball-field imagery, both current and historical, with everything from wide-lens captures of an entire crowd to extreme close-ups of equipment, like mitts and grass.

“Some of my favorite pieces were old tickets, when tickets were cool and interesting little works of art,” says Rachael Zaudke Wilkins, who runs the print operation at A-R-T. “We enlarged some of them to 24-by-72-inch prints.”

Pre-Order Now: ChromaLuxe EXT Panels for Outdoor Art & Signage

Available to ship mid-November, ChromaLuxe EXT gloss white metal print panels will allow you to produce the lasting, vibrant colors you expect from ChromaLuxe panels with UV resistance that can stand up to outdoor elements for at least three years.

Dye-sublimation printers turn to ChromaLuxe metal panels to create high-definition photos and art reproductions that are fused into the coating, which provides permanent image protection. These versatile panels are used to create stunning wall art, museum displays, tabletops, signage and more.

Now, the masterminds at ChromaLuxe are bringing all those options outside with the new ChromaLuxe EXT Extended Life Metal Prints. A new UV-resistant gloss finish provides the same dynamic image quality, and also stands up to weather; plus it’s easy to clean and resistant to graffiti, scratches and chemicals.

The new ChromaLuxe EXT aluminum has been thoroughly tested to withstand wind and impact, making it ideal for outdoor artwork, photography, signage and all types of displays. While photo reproduction is a favorite application, ChromaLuxe can also be used for branded logo work, directional and informational signage, menu boards, cabinetry, wallcovering and more.

The new panels are available in 11 standard sizes and full 49-by-97-inch sheets. For more details, download this flyer, and call a LexJet representative at 800-453-9538 to discover more ways to use the all new ChromaLuxe EXT outdoor metal panels.
