In its annual roundup of digital and print reader requests via its website metric system, Digital Output compiles its list of the Top 50 vendors who provide the most interesting and popular products, services and trends.

Vendors offering fabric, fabric-based printing devices or tools involved in the textile process were some of the most popular, according to the magazine’s readers.

“We continue to work with some of the most influential vendors in the space, and our readers respond by inquiring about their products year after year,” says Tom Tetreault, editor-in-chief/publisher, Digital Output.

In the November issue, new and popular LexJet products, Production Display Film SUV, award-winning Simple Grip Backlit and CrystalClear Permanent Adhesive, are highlighted.

“This acknowledgment from Digital Output’s readers goes to show that we’ve not only continued to develop the LexJet brand, but that we’ve also made a strong impact with the industry-changing products we’ve brought to market,” says Dan Halkyard, senior market manager. “There’s no better measure of that than hearing it directly from the customers and business partners we serve.”

Thanks to Digital Output and its readers for this great honor!

Are Your POP Displays Working as Hard as They Should?

In the world of point-of-purchase displays, graphics really have one job: Getting folks to break out the wallet. Executed correctly, they get the job done.

The bottling and hospitality industries have mastered the art of POP advertising with window graphics, cooler wraps, banners, shelf tags, backlit signs and more. With these tools, POP displays can deliver a variety of messaging tactics, including brand definition, sale promotions and event publicity. No matter what industry you’re in, there are plenty of lessons to learn from those who have perfected these types of displays.

LexJet’s Vincent Bejar

This year, the magazine asked Vincent Bejar, business development manager at LexJet, to give his input on wide-format printing.  Bejar explains how HP PageWide XL Series media is changing the landscape for architecture, engineering and construction markets.

“Also used for color graphics, it opens the door to new applications and higher productivity for the printer,” he says. “This is the beginning of a technology shift in inkjet printing that will continue to propel the printers using these high-speed effective devices into higher-volume, higher-profit solution areas.”

Shifts in technology, such as new applications and devices, are further discussed in “Industry Leader Perspective,” available on Digital Output‘s website. This year isn’t over yet, and with software, hardware, ink and media all advancing at such rapid paces, we’ll be keeping an eye on what the rest of 2015 will bring.
