UPS Store Owners Visit LexJet’s Experience Center

Earlier this week, several owners of UPS Stores visited LexJet’s Experience Center, housed in its Sarasota, Fla., headquarters. It was a chance to not only put names to faces, but also get hands-on, up-close experience with the latest print technology and accessories and learn real-life strategies for growing their stores’ business.

“It’s always great  to have customers visit our state-of-the-art Experience Center where they can interact with the newest print technologies available in today’s market,” says LexJet national sales representative Vince Bejar. “Plus, they get the chance to talk to our experienced print technicians to learn about ways they can improve their current print operation/workflow.”

During the session, the UPS team learned about growing their blueprint and scanning services with the Epson SureColor T-5270 printer; they discovered the ease of use with the Canon PRO-4000 printer; and the advantages of printing with HP’s Latex technology.

The LexJet team also covered print finishing techniques, like using the hinge method to adhere yard signs, as well as bottom line advice on profit margins with tools like a pricing calculator that the UPS Stores could implement immediately.

“During a time when we all do so much communication over the phone or online, it was great to meet face-to-face with people I work with on a nearly daily basis,” Bejar says. “We hope to offer more of these types of hands-on visits soon.”
