LexJet Reviews: Sustainable Programs and Products

Just in time for Earth Day, C.J. Forker returns for a new edition of LexJet Reviews focusing on sustainable products and programs. From media with special certifications to recycling programs, these options will help you start seeing green.

Media Solutions:

LexJet Print-n-Stick Fabric – A popular choice for those DIY projects to high-end wall décor, this low-tack, self-adhesive fabric is not only PVC-free, but also free of other harmful chemicals which means fewer emissions, less harmful waste, and a better solution for the environment.

ChromaLuxe – Proudly made in America, nearly every part of the ChromaLuxe manufacturing process – from the factory itself to the coating; from the fiberboard to the panels – is considered sustainable. The company also has a commitment to recycling, which means less waste and fewer harmful emissions.

HP PVC-free Durable Smooth and Durable Suede Wall Papers – These wallcoverings are popular for designers looking to create colorful murals while capturing high-definition details. Because both are UL Greenguard Gold certified – they produce much lower levels of emissions – they are safe for sensitive environments like hospitals and schools. Additionally, HP PVC-Free Durable Smooth Wallpaper is FSC-certified, which means it is responsibly harvested timber that is selectively cut, rather than from industrialists who clear-cut forests.

HP 15-oz Prime Double-sided Blockout Banner and 18-oz Prime Double-sided Pole Banner – The perfect solutions for long-lasting indoor displays or applications that will be displayed in demanding outdoor conditions are these two newest banners available from LexJet. These durable banners offer an opaque blockout layer for double-sided printing. Both are REACH and Prop 65 compliant, which means there are no harmful emissions.

Sustainable Programs:

LexJet Ink Cartridge Recycling – The new ink cartridge recycling program is easy. Simply go to the resource page and fill out the information. Download the prepaid shipping labels and schedule a UPS pickup. It’s as simple as that. All OEM brands and sizes are accepted, from wide format to desktop. Right now, we are not accepting toner tubes, toner bottles, or generic cartridges New research shows 375-million ink cartridges are thrown away every year and this new program gives customers an alternative so the cartridges don’t end up in a landfill.

HP Take-back Program – This long-running program aims to cut down on waste and put those raw materials to good use. Since 1987, when the program began, HP has recovered over 2.3 billion pounds. To read more about HP’s sustainable impact, you can see a full report HERE. This simple and environmentally sound take-back program offers consumers and business customers the ability to return and recycle any brand of computing hardware as well as many HP media products.

Print & Win Judges Offer Tips for Capturing Competition-worthy Photos

With over 600 submissions for the Print & Win Competition, it was tough to narrow it down to the images that were selected to face the judges’ panel. In fact, there were several images that were on the cusp of making it to the panel.

Given that there was so much discussion about the images, several of the original judges – Pete Wright, Jeff Bowman, and Dennis and Cheri Hammon – returned to share a rare, public learning opportunity for up and coming photographers and photographers who have never entered their work in a formal competition.

The judges selected a few of the images and offered some great talking points not only to the photographer of the image but also to anyone looking to learn and hone their skills. Dennis Hammon is excited to share this sneak peek into a judge’s mind.

“We want you to learn from everybody’s image. We want to give everyone the experience to understand what judges are looking for,” he says. “We’re looking for sharpness, technique, and story-telling. The composition and subject are so important.”

The judges picked a wide variety of images ranging from a boudoir capture to a kaleidoscope creation and discussed what the photographers did right and how the image could be improved for another competition or what a photographer could do differently for future competitions. The suggestions were as simple as a closer crop and choosing a different time of day to as technical as changing settings and doing additional post-production work.

A consensus among the judges is the best way to improve skill and technique is to continue entering competitions. As many past Sunset Print Award winners have stated, anytime they put their work in front of judges, they learn something to help them improve.

Whether the Click & Win Image Awards was your first or fortieth competition, check out the video above to eavesdrop on the conversation. Feel free to leave us a comment and let us know what you learned from the discussions.

Now that you’ve learned more about how to capture the perfect image, contact a LexJet specialist at 800-453-9538 to find out how to take the next step – printing. Remember, it’s not a photograph until it’s printed.
