Now Available: EnduraFab™ Textiles, Exclusively at LexJet

You’ve asked for a latex-compatible, reliable and durable fabric. Now you’ve got it. LexJet has partnered with Green Textile to introduce EnduraFab™ Textiles, 100% polyester warp knit fabrics that have been finished with a proprietary chemistry specifically designed to adhere third-generation latex inks to the fabric.

“Over the past few years, we’ve witnessed the growing trend and subsequent demand for inkjet printable fabrics, specifically those that are compatible with latex inks,” says Jaimie Mask, product specialist. “With EnduraFab™, we’re answering that call with an excellent line of textiles from our partners at Green Textile. These six new products are changing the game for wide format printing.”

National Sunset Print Award Winner Christie Newell Visits Sarasota

As the winner of the 2016 National Sunset Print Award, Peoria, Ill.-based photographer Christie Newell won a trip to the Lido Beach Resort and a $500 Visa gift card. She swung by LexJet’s headquarters last Friday for a quick visit and tour before enjoying her mini-vacation on Lido Key.

Newell took first place for her image, “Old Faithful,” a portrait of a client’s dog, named Tilly, an Aussie Doodle. The photo beat out 25 other finalists from around the country.

“I was very surprised that it won,” Newell says. “I knew a lot of the other photographers who were in the running, and their work is top-notch. It was very exciting.”
