Menu Updates with Print-N-Stick Fabric

Menus Printed on Print-N-Stick

JuiceWell needed menu signs right away and menu signs that could be easily switched out for its location in the new Santa Barbara Public Market.

One of the neighboring businesses at the Santa Barbara Public Market had something they wanted; a printable fabric with an adhesive that makes the prints removable and reusable so old menus can come down and new ones can go up in their place quickly and easily.

JuiceWell was in luck since local photo and fine art reproduction company Color Services had a roll of what the doctor, or juicer in this case, ordered: LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric.

“They called on a Wednesday and needed it all on Friday. We printed it late Wednesday night and delivered it early Friday morning. The customer installed it themselves and that’s why they were so thrilled with it: if they change prices or add things to their menu they can change it themselves,” says Glen Hodges, co-owner of Color Services. “We also found that it renders better blacks than other fabrics we’ve worked with. We noticed right away that it has a bright-white base, so it helps make the black deeper.”

Color Services printed six menu panels of varying sizes on a Canon iPF8300 from LexJet and then coated them for added durability with a water-based lacquer. The results met JuiceWell’s every need and showcase an additional application Color Services can provide its customers.

JuiceWell shop owner Sharon Egan said, “The ease of installing both large and small wall clings was pretty much mistake-proof and a testament to the quality of the material Color Services uses. Their printing is sharp and rich, and their team does an amazing job in taking care of and going the extra mile for the customer.”

Color Services plans to follow up with more prints on the front counter at JuiceWell, and is ready to go with any menu changes on the fly.

  1. Can prints be taken down and re-hung at a later date? If so, how are they stored?

    Thanks.

      Hi Carl… Print-N-Stick can be taken down and re-applied at a later date. When doing so, make sure the adhesive side is protected from any dirt and debris, and that it’s not exposed to the air (which will dry it out over time). So, the best way to store it is to the save the release liner, put the material back on the liner and roll it up for storage. Hope that helps!
