Each year Digital Output’s readership dictates the top 50 winners and ten honorable mentions. Using the magazine’s Web site metric system, www.DOdirect.net, the magazine tallies readers’ interest in companies throughout the year. This is done through requests made on print and Web editorial and advertisements as seen in the magazine, on the Web site, or in Digital Output’s weekly newsletter the Digital Queue.
“The Top 50 Readers’ Choice Awards identify some of the most innovative vendors in the graphic arts,” says Tom Tetreault, editor-in-chief/publisher, Digital Output.
The full list and accompanying article will appear in the November issue of Digital Output, in both the print and digital publications, which will be distributed on Oct. 27.
Three LexJet product innovations will be included in the Top 50 feature:
- Sunset Photo Canvas Paper 230g: This new photo paper is LexJet’s popular Premium Archival Matte Paper embossed with a canvas texture, complete with all the benefits of Premium Archival Matte: an instant-dry coating for smudge-free printing and handling; a large color gamut for high-contrast, high-resolution printing; and an acid-free, pH-neutral thick and heavy base for trouble-free printing, mounting and framing.
- LexJet 8 Mil Production Satin SUV 180g: Geared toward high-volume production work that requires a balance of quality and economy, this satin-finish production paper features a high-performance, instant-dry, scratch-resistant base for posters, photo reproductions, point-of-purchase displays, and other commercial applications. It’s compatible with solvent, low-solvent, UV-curable and latex printers.
- LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric: Provides true photo-quality printing on a bright-white fabric base backed with a repositionable, removable adhesive that makes it easy to apply, reposition, remove and re-use graphics on virtually any flat surface. It removes cleanly with no adhesive residue.
