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.

Prints That Win: Deeply Attached

For Bend, Ore. photographer Julia Kelleher, photography is a family affair. Her photography studio, Jewel Images, is celebrating 10 years of capturing family milestones, including the arrival of newborns, pregnancy and other family portraits. Kelleher also shares her own family moments through the photographs she enters in yearly competitions.

“I try to enter my son every year,” Kelleher says. “My goal is to someday create an album of annual competition images for him from when he was very little to when he’s 18 or 19 years old.”

Recently, Kelleher’s quest resulted in a Sunset Print Award for her winning portrait, “Deeply Attached,” in the PPA Western District 2017 competition.

The portrait depicts her young son holding a toy dog attached to a blanket, a gift given to him by his aunt when he was born. Dean’s toy goes by many names, such as “Blankey” or “Stuffy.”

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.

To learn more about these new products, call your LexJet representative at 800-453-9538 today.
