If you haven’t experimented with some of our top-selling products, now’s the time to get to know them. Check out how our customers have used these five options for photo reproduction, signage, canvas wraps, wall murals, innovative art installations and more. Over the years, our customers order these products time and time again, so you know they’re tried-and-true favorites.

Artisan Craftsman Books
LexJet Premium Archival Matte Paper

LexJet Premium Archival Matte Paper is a long-time favorite for both photography and fine art reproduction. Artisan Craftsman Books relies on the smooth matte finish for gorgeous, coffee table-style fine-art giclee-printed books. This is a paper tailored to high-end work, with accurate color reproduction and high-resolution output. The heavy-weight 9.5 mil base dries instantly, making it an easy-to-handle, smudge-resistant choice that’s compatible with latex and aqueous printer techology.

Printing promotions, posters and banners with polypropylene
LexJet TOUGHcoat Water-Resistant Polypropylene

TOUGHcoat Water-Resistant Polypropylene is a versatile media that provides tear- and water-resistance that can work for a variety of applications, such as banners, posters, banner stands and even backlit displays. “Water-Resistant Polypropylene from LexJet prints nicely, it’s scratch-resistant, easy to work with and quite economical,” says photographer David Ziser, who prints hanging display banners for special events and promotions. Bonus: This product has a 125° white point, which delivers colors that really pop.

LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric wall mural

LexJet Solvent Print-N-Stick Fabric is one of our most versatile products that is the answer for promotions, displays and graphics of all kinds. It’s super easy to just print and stick, plus you can reposition and remove it without leaving any residue behind. Our customers have used it for wall murals, window graphics, floor graphics, menus, temporary menus, sporting event signage and even elevator graphics. Check out the inspiring project, UNIFY, during which the owners of Robert Charles Photography used Print-N-Stick in a number of creative ways. It’s also available in an aqueous- and latex-compatible version: LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric.

Canvas Gallery Wraps
LexJet Sunset Reserve Bright Matte Canvas

LexJet Sunset Reserve Bright Matte Canvas is a go-to, consistent canvas for high-end prints. When PostNet Norfolk needed to create art reproductions on canvas, they turned to the Sunset favorite to create canvas wraps that were eventually auctioned off during a Navy SEAL Foundation fundraiser for $18,000. The art pieces were topped with LexJet Sunset Satin Coating for a stunning finish. This best-selling product is a poly/cotton blend with a slight texture that turns out a wide color gamut.

LexJet 8 mil Absolute™ Backlit

LexJet 8 Mil Absolute™ Backlit film is another uber-versatile product that printers and artists alike have discovered for a number of innovative applications. Last year we met the creative minds at Lumii who incorporated Absolute™ Backlit in their 3D prints, pairing it with another film, backlighting and their groundbreaking software to create the 3D effect. New York artist Karin Giusti created breathtaking light columns printed on Absolute™ Backlit in her 9/11 First Responders exhibit, Three Seasons at Black Forest Farm. In 2017, the film achieved a Class A Fire Rating, which made it an instant favorite with Octo Lights, who create customized fluorescent light covers for hospitals, office buildings, schools and more.

It’s Election Sign Season. Are You Ready?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably aware that it’s a big election year. Apart from the national scene, local elections are starting to gear up, too. And that means more demand for signage, such as banners, yard signs, posters and more.

When it comes to election signage, there are a few tips to keep in mind in terms of what content to include, color and design and the proper material to print to. Here’s what you need to know, and some tips you can pass along to your customers:

How to Choose the Right Media for Your Event Graphics

Whether it’s the big game, a weekend sale or a high school reunion, signage for your event is a vital form of advertising to get people in the door. You’ve got lots of options: posters, window graphics and banners, to name a few.

Each of those serve a different purpose, and choosing the right media to use can be tricky — do you need something to display outdoors that will promote your event for several weeks in advance, or do you need a banner on the day of the event that stands up to windy skies?

Take a look at the video above to learn answers to these questions and many more tips and tricks to choosing the most effective media for your needs.

Call a LexJet print specialist at 800-453-9538 for help choosing and purchasing event media.
