A Brave New World for SunTrust Park

When the Atlanta Braves moved into their new home, SunTrust Park, this April, they had a lot of blank walls to fill in offices and throughout the stadium. They turned to the corporate design experts at A-R-T & Associates in Atlanta to produce a one-of-a-kind series of canvas prints.

The artwork, supplied from the Braves’ archives, included a variety of baseball and ball-field imagery, both current and historical, with everything from wide-lens captures of an entire crowd to extreme close-ups of equipment, like mitts and grass.

“Some of my favorite pieces were old tickets, when tickets were cool and interesting little works of art,” says Rachael Zaudke Wilkins, who runs the print operation at A-R-T. “We enlarged some of them to 24-by-72-inch prints.”

For the massive print job, Wilkins turned to LexJet Sunset by Fredrix Satin Canvas SUV, a latex-compatible option, which produces high-end results that don’t require lamination, and offered at a cost-effective price point.

“The consistency that comes out of the box never changes with this canvas,” Wilkins says. “Plus, it’s very durable while stretching, which is a very big problem we’ve run into with other products, where the ink will rub or crack on the creases.”

Wilkins has been such a fan of the canvas that she says she’s ordered 50 to 60 rolls. “It holds a really great line and has fantastic print quality,” she says. “I’ve tried other products, but this really met our price point for our clients.”

The prints, which went as large as 48-by-72-inches, were wrapped with 2-inch stretcher bars and inserted into black reveal frames that A-R-T manufactures in-house. “It gives it a nice finished edge with a quarter-inch float around the image,” Wilkins says.

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

Width Variety Key to Consistent Canvas Print Projects

Sunset by Fredrix Satin Canvas SUV.

A common issue in multiple-print canvas projects, like a gallery exhibition, is finding enough different roll widths for all the sizes you need to print. The ability to use the same canvas for one project ensures production efficiency and image consistency across all the widths you print.

That’s why the new Sunset by Fredrix Canvases for solvent and aqueous printers are available from LexJet in widths up to 64″.

Sunset by Fredrix Matte Canvas for aqueous printers, which features one of the brightest white points for an OBA-free canvas, comes in 17″, 24″, 36″, 44″, 60″ and 64″ widths.

Sunset by Fredrix Satin Canvas SUV for solvent, low-solvent, latex and UV-curable printers – which  provides consistent and accurate color on a bright-white, acid-free base – comes in 30″, 36″, 54″, 60″ and 64″ widths.

Now, whether you’re printing all sizes yourself, or outsourcing your largest prints, you can ensure that all your prints match in finish, texture and image quality: one canvas, one color profile and a consistent, high-quality project every time.

Give a LexJet customer specialist a call at 800-453-9538 to find out more and to get the sizes you need for your printer with the new Sunset by Fredrix canvases.
