One Printed Poster, Three Creative Applications

To show how simply you can offer a variety of ways to display retail posters, we took one design and finished it three ways: a hanging poster, a mounted print and a face-mounted window graphic. Watch the video above to see we achieved three different looks, and check out the products we used:

Hanging Poster:

Aluminum “snap” poster displays feature a quick, snap-open design that allows for fast and easy poster changes. Combined with 8 Mil Production Satin Photo Paper, you get an economical, hanging system with a clean and elegant look.

Mounted Print:

LexJet Production Satin Photo Paper PSA is perfect for photo-realistic posters that can be mounted to any substrate, like poster board, PVC, foam boards or aluminum. With a one-step adhesive, it’s a simple solution for mounted prints.

Face-mounted Window Poster:

LexJet CrystalClear-X Removable Adhesive and 8 Mil Production Gloss Photo Paper are ideal for temporary window applications. The air flow release liner provides easy bubble-free installation and no-residue removal.

LexJet Extreme AquaVinyl w/ PSA

Re-invigorate Display Cases: When Allison-Kaufman Company participated in a jewelry show, they needed an eye-catching display for the Queen of Black Diamonds pieces. The solution? Wrapping a dull display case with Art Deco-style graphics printed on a pressure-sensitive vinyl like LexJet Extreme AquaVinyl w/ PSA, which instantly upgraded the case and could be removed later. This aqueous-compatible waterproof vinyl is durable enough to be used outdoors or on vehicles for up to 12 months.

How-to Video: Face-mount Prints to Acrylic

One of the most popular finishing techniques for a clean, modern look for prints and photos is face-mounting the image to acrylic. It’s a technique that’s been perfected by printers such as Bumblejax for images and graphics displayed in homes, commercial buildings, retail spaces and more.

Check out the video above for step-by-step instructions and helpful hacks on face-mounting like a pro using photo-quality media and a double-sided adhesive. In this video, we chose LexJet 11 mil Blockout PolyGloss for its excellent color reproduction, lay flat finish and gray backing for extra opacity. We face-mounted it with the all-new LexJet CrystalClear Permanent Adhesive (see complete project supply list below).
