MaraShield UV Coating Solution: Now Available at LexJet

We’re excited to announce that we’re now carrying a full array of MaraShield UV Coatings for more wide-format print protection options.

MaraShield UV coatings are cured onto the substrate using UV light to provide long-term durability and abrasion resistance for a variety of applications from fine-art prints to truck graphics. UV coatings deliver excellent print protection that is machine-applied faster and at a lower cost than film laminates. Plus, they add intensified color vibrancy to graphics that can be applied to either rigid or flexible substrates.

Rather than providing one general, all-purpose UV coating, we’re offering the following application-specific products so you get the right protection for the right substrate every time:

As part of the full UV coating solutions, LexJet also carries the MegaCoat XL by TEC Lighting, Inc., which can coat materials ranging from pressure-sensitive film to 1-inch board, and everything in between.

Introducing Sunset Copperplate Rag Mould-made Paper

We’re excited to announce our first mould-made paper, LexJet Sunset Copperplate Rag 315gsm. This addition to our line of quality fine art papers is the a 100% cotton, soft-grain base that has the look and feel of a true art paper.

Mould-made papers are a favorite among fine art printers and photographers who want a high-quality look for their sophisticated artwork. Mould-made papers have interlocking fibers that add to the richness of the texture and increase strength and durability, as well. The manufacturing process is painstakingly meticulous to ensure the finish product pairs the consistency of a machine-made product with the characteristics of a handmade paper.

Unlike competing products on the market, Sunset Copperplate Rag is free of optical brighteners, acid and lignin.

“This is a high-end addition to the Sunset line that’s ideal for limited-edition print makers, as well as production printers, thanks to both the quality and the competitive price point,” says product specialist Jaimie Mask.

The natural white base and matte finish of LexJet Sunset Copperplate Rag 315gsm produces an excellent color gamut and unsurpassed Dmax. “It’s a great option for anyone wanting that ‘print-making’ feel with an artistic surface and texture,” Mask says.

Product Highlights:

  • Natural white, 100% cotton rag
  • Soft grain with matte finish
  • Excellent color gamut and Dmax
  • Archival quality
  • OBA-free, acid-free, lignin-free
  • Applications: Fine art and photographic reproduction and restoration, limited-edition prints, art portfolios, photo albums

Introducing the All-new LexJet Premium WallPro Wallcovering

For a firm that produces large runs of custom-printed wallcovering, consistency is key, says Kim Karr, print production manager at Kalisher, which specializes in art and wall murals for the hospitality industry. For a recent update job, Karr opted for the all-new LexJet Premium Smooth Pearl WallPro™ to match the previously used wallcovering.

“Since we were working on specialty pieces for the property, we needed something that matched exactly,” she says. ““It was such a perfect match for us! It helped us ensure a successful installation and a happy client!”

Introducing a New, Latex-Friendly Mesh Banner

For high-wind areas, creating a good-looking banner that can stand up to the elements and works well with your preferred printer technology can be a challenge. HEYtex Mesh w/ Liner solves all of those problems. This 360gsm polyester base with a 60/40 mesh pattern is particularly latex-friendly, performing better than other mesh banners on the market.

“With other products, you’ll get head strikes and the liner and mesh tend to separate when running them through a latex printer,” says product specialist Shaun Jaycox. “This product works really well with a liner that’s latex-compatible and won’t separate until you’re ready to hang it.”

HEYtex Mesh w/ Liner is also compatible with solvent, eco-solvent and UV-curable printers, making it a versatile banner option for many print operations. It can be easily grommeted and hung — an ideal option for applications like outdoor banners, sporting events, construction sites and many more.

“This is a great, cost-effective solution that’ll save printers a few cents per foot and work more effectively with their latex technology,” Jaycox says.
