Thesis Exhibits Get Graphic with LexJet Print-N-Stick

When designer Nathan Lambert of Full Color, Inc., a professional printing lab in Dallas, needed to put together his master of arts thesis exhibit along with a handful of his peers, he opted for an easy-to-use product that would work on all surfaces, floor to ceiling.

“For these big final presentations, we used LexJet Solvent Print-N-Stick Fabric everywhere,” Lambert says. “We printed all the wall graphics, and used it for floor graphic and pedestals, too.”

Throughout the exhibit hall, Lambert and his peers put together elaborate displays that featured topics like color therapy, gender identity, mobile fresh markets and superhero archetypes. Lambert’s thesis discussed the benefits of contemporary middle school uniforms.

For his exhibit, he covered stationary walls with white-on-black text graphics, while mobile walls carried bright imagery along with informative text. He used Print-N-Stick to cover two pedestals holding manikins wearing uniforms that were dye-sub printed. Full Color utilizes Epson and Kodak printers to get the jobs done.

“When we got the Print-N-Stick from LexJet, we did some test printing,” Lambert says. “For a bunch of designers, it was like giving us a toy to play with. We were able to get some really cool stuff out of that material.”

His team used a Graphtec cutter for some of the more complete exhibits. “That made our lives really easy,” he says. “We used some technology we hadn’t used for our regular work.”

For this job, Lambert used an Epson SureColor S80600 to print 200 linear feet of Print-N-Stick. “We were so blown away with the color,” he says. “LexJet sent us the color profile to use with Onyx software — we were just blown away with how vibrant everything was. As a designer, that’s pretty awesome for us.”

In previous years, taking down printed graphics was a challenge, as many adhesives would remove the paint, as well. ” Everyone got excited by how wonderful the quality and colors, and how it came down without damaging wall,” Lambert says. “This product would be awesome to use in a home — like a child’s bedroom or the living room where you want to put something cool on the wall.”

Printer Review: Epson Solvent S-Series One Year Later

Last year I wrote a review describing my initial experience with the newest Epson Solvent SureColor S-Series printer, the S60600. You may recall that I could not find anything negative to write about it.

Well, I figured one year and hundreds of prints later is a good time to give everyone an update on these solvent printers. On our tech support floor, we run more than 25 different wide format machines. We typically use them to run profiles for each printer/product combination. There are times when we print on both the Epson S60600 and the Epson S80600 continuously five days straight. But the next month, we’ll only use the once or twice a week.

As a testing facility, we are a very odd user since we will have spells of not using a machine for some time, but that makes our situation prime for a review that is ideal to satisfy both types of users.

Streamlining Art Reproduction with the Epson S80600

No matter what size the print facility, efficient workflow, speed and quality are always top of mind. The same holds true for Josh King, who runs Sacramento Giclee, a five-person shop that works primarily with artists who need scanning, reproduction and custom framing of their artwork.

Sacramento Giclee reproduced an acrylic painting for a canvas wrap.

“We’re a custom print shop, and we do everything from capturing originals to printing, installing, shipping and framing,” King says. “We also do some big jobs for hospitality or healthcare where we might do 200 prints.”

As his business has grown, King has explored new ways to speed up production while maintaining quality, and last September he decided to pair an Epson SureColor S80600 64-inch solvent printer with the two aqueous printers in his operation.
