Going Green with Eco-Solvent Inks? Here Are 20 Must-Have Products

We know the environment is top-of-mind for many print shops, and that’s why you’re transitioning to eco-solvent ink technology, such as Epson’s UltraChrome GS3 ink with GreenGuard Gold certification. To help you pair your printer with the right products, we’ve compiled a list of 20 must-have compatible media options, available at LexJet. Check out these products for art and photo, walls, signage and multipurpose applications:

Art & Photo

Eco-solvent options for canvas and photo printing is especially attractive because it eliminates the need for additional coating production that’s required for aqueous printing. These best sellers do just that while offering excellent image reproduction, as well:

Introducing: LexJet Sunset Production Satin Canvas SUV

For photography and fine art reproduction shops, LexJet Sunset Production Satin Canvas SUV is the all-new solution for high-volume production that demands consistent results for the creative digital market.

The new canvas is a U.S.-made 100 percent polyester canvas with the look and feel of a traditional, 2-over-1 poly-cotton weave, but heavier than a typical polyester canvas. Compatible with solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV-curable printers, this versatile canvas is a cost-effective alternative that doesn’t require a coating for a satin finish.

Los Angeles-based Maxwell Dickson, which specializes in digital canvas décor art, tested the new product and has since put in an order to bring it on as a go-to canvas. “We’re going to use it — that’s the best endorsement I can give anyone,” says Kashif Shaheed, manager at Maxwell Dickson.

“We prefer for our canvas to have a cloth feel to it, so it looks like authentic canvas – not too plastic,” he says. “People confuse it with vinyl if it looks too manufactured.”

Because Maxwell Dickson prints more than 100 prints per month that range in a variety of sizes from 16-by-20 inches to 40-by-60 inches, the fact that this new canvas comes in 150-foot rolls is a bonus.

“We use at least 12 rolls of the 75-foot rolls each month,” he says. “We’d prefer not to change out the rolls as often, so that’s really one of the biggest selling points for us.”

Here’s what some of our customers have said about using products from LexJet canvas line:

  • “We’ve tried a lot of canvas materials, and Sunset Production Gloss Canvas SUV was clearly the best material. Most of the canvas material we’ve tried, if you rubbed it or looked at it wrong, the ink would fall off of it, and when you stapled the canvas, it would tear, which was a big problem. This stuff is great, and it’s inexpensive.”   — Phil Crawford, Berea Printing
  • Sunset by Fredrix Satin Canvas SUV is the best canvas to date. Our color came out perfect; we have never seen a truer white hue before.  We have received numerous customer compliments, so they can definitely see the difference. Thank you for helping our business produce the highest quality at the best price.”   — Zach Gardynski, New Era Portfolio
