Introducing a New, Latex-Friendly Mesh Banner

For high-wind areas, creating a good-looking banner that can stand up to the elements and works well with your preferred printer technology can be a challenge. HEYtex Mesh w/ Liner solves all of those problems. This 360gsm polyester base with a 60/40 mesh pattern is particularly latex-friendly, performing better than other mesh banners on the market.

“With other products, you’ll get head strikes and the liner and mesh tend to separate when running them through a latex printer,” says product specialist Shaun Jaycox. “This product works really well with a liner that’s latex-compatible and won’t separate until you’re ready to hang it.”

HEYtex Mesh w/ Liner is also compatible with solvent, eco-solvent and UV-curable printers, making it a versatile banner option for many print operations. It can be easily grommeted and hung — an ideal option for applications like outdoor banners, sporting events, construction sites and many more.

“This is a great, cost-effective solution that’ll save printers a few cents per foot and work more effectively with their latex technology,” Jaycox says.

Choosing HEYtex for High-end Outdoor Signage

In the competitive world of business, it’s no surprise that large enterprises demand that their signage applications and designs be top-notch and eye-catching. For visual communications company Tone LLC, creating mesmerizing signage is its forte.

Focusing on large-format decorative printing and wall coverings, Tone’s work can be seen across the country, specializing in grand, large, and wide format graphics for construction, event and retail solutions. For Tone’s managing partner Steven Thompson, HEYtex 15 oz. Topaz DS and HEYtex 13 oz. TopazFLX Matte are his go-to option for dazzling and durable outdoor applications.

Tone’s work for French trunk and leather goods manufacturer, Goyard Paris (shown above), is one of its most recent applications featuring HEYtex products. In order to draw attention to Goyard’s new stores opening in San Francisco, Beverly Hills and Miami, Tone created storefront barricades to kick-start the brand’s awareness in the community.

The barricades were designed to feature Goyard’s logo, history excerpts, the grand opening date and even old photos of Goyard’s vintage storefronts from the past. The San Francisco application is designed to look like a high-fashion trunk, which quickly captures the attention of a passersby.

HEYtex offers gloss and matte finish materials with high tensile strength, ideal for the outdoor signage Tone creates. “It’s a nice, thick media,” Thompson says. “The denier count is really high compared to the different vinyl substrates, which is crucial for outdoor signage.”

Combined with an HP Latex 560 printer, the graphics are beautifully finished and scratch resistant – ready for Tone’s various high-end outdoor applications.
