Now: Simple Grip for Windows — 3 Easy-to-Install Options

Original LexJet Simple Grip

Our award-winning LexJet Simple Grip Backlit film was such a fan favorite that we’ve added two more versions that deliver great window graphic results and are just as easy to install.

Original Simple Grip has a slightly frosted finish that is ideal for high-end retail environments that are enhanced with natural or artificial light — from the front or back — to really make the images pop off the window.

Prepping Simple Grip Clear

LexJet Simple Grip Clear offers a truly transparent film to add a hint of graphics or a dynamic display that allows for some see-through capabilities without perforation holes. Like original Simple Grip, graphics printed on Simple Grip Clear are visible from the inside or outside of the window. Print on the surface of the film to apply on the outside of the window or reverse print to face-mount the graphic from the inside for extra protection.

Printing LexJet Simple Grip White on HP Latex

LexJet Simple Grip White is our third, quick-dry polypropylene option with lay-flat construction that looks great with front lighting. The matte finish adds some opacity and colors and details really pop, especially with added lighting.

Digital Décor Printing Goes Beyond Wallcoverings

A lot has been said over the past few years about the opportunities in digital décor printing … and most of them have been focused on wallcoverings. And while we love a good digitally printed wallcovering as much as the next guy, we wanted to take a moment to focus on other opportunities in decor printing … beyond wallcoverings.

Take a look at some of these inventive, imaginative projects our customers have done using a variety of ink technologies and media types. And the next time someone asks you to print a wall project, consider pitching them on some custom print jobs off the wall.

TABLES: Opportunities are almost limitless for both surface and object printing. Take, for instance, the tabletop creations by Jamie Birch, who used LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric and LexJet Crystal Low Tack for sports-themed customized tables. Want to keep them looking good? Our friends at Fredrix used Fredrix 575 Tempo Canvas top coated with Marabu coating and mounted to a puzzle board and routed into circles to create these branded coasters.

 

 

 

 

 

WINDOWS: Create customized decorative prints on either the window itself or shades to block the sun. Window shades can be created with a variety of products, such as LexJet Poly Select Medium, EnduraFab™ Frontlit Premier or HP Light Fabric. To add some privacy or a graphic element to the window itself, try LexJet Simple Grip Backlit, which can be seen from either side of the window and is enhanced by artificial or natural light.

 

 

 

 

 

LAMPS: A little punch of color can go a long way to enhance a room. Lamp shades have become a favorite among digital printers, using products like LexJet Sunset Textured Fine Art Paper 310g and finishing it with a UV coating for extra protection. Retailers like Lamps Plus give customers a variety of pattern and color combinations so they can create their own one-of-a-kind look.

 

 

 

 

 

PILLOWS: These are just two examples of how you can add some major customization to your throw pillows with a latex printer, courtesy of Fredrix, using Fredrix Natural Raw Canvas, and HP, featuring the versatile HP Light Fabric.

 

 

 

 

 

PRINTS: So, technically these prints go on the wall, but offer a decorative option if adding wall paper or a mural isn’t an option. We love all types of hanging wall art including acrylic-mounted prints, floating canvases, wrapped canvases, framed photos and ChromaLuxe panels. There’s something for everyone and every ink technology in our product mix!

Quick-change Retail Graphics? You’ve Got Options
