In addition, the high speeds achievable with this technology do not compromise the image quality. This is thanks to Mimaki’s newly developed patent pending ink ejection technology that reduces color irregularities in high density areas even in high-speed output mode. You can choose to enhance graphics with a glossy finish or achieve a luxurious look with a matte effect. Other notable features include 2.5D textured printing for sense of sight and touch and simultaneous clear and white ink for watermark printing, expanding the range of applications.

You can seamlessly perform print-and-cut operations, expanding your printing possibilities, including decorations, posters, labels, stickers, and more. This versatile machine is also equipped with ID cut and zero-margin crop mark functions, which support automatic and continuous cutting of various data while reducing waste.

Plus, with the innovative Dot Adjustment System (DAS), Nozzle Check Unit (NCU), and Nozzle Recovery System (NRS), maintaining consistent print quality is effortless.

Print with Confidence: Essential Go-To Solution for High-Volume Printing

In the dynamic signage industry, flexibility and adaptability are essential. One easy solution for your customers who expect the latest in innovative and colorful signage is LexJet Solvent Print-N-Stick Fabric.

Warner Bros. Discovery’s internal print shop handles high-volume printing for its many media brands globally and has trusted LexJet Solvent Print-N-Stick Fabric for years. Specializing in custom and a wide variety of indoor and outdoor graphics, durability and ease of use are paramount to meet escalating demands.

Recently, they shared why this product has become a go-to solution for their unique print shop. What started with a heavy focus on producing posters for internal use quickly expanded to new opportunities with event signage.

A Solution You Can Count On

Jenny Newby, from Warner Bros. Discovery’s Creative Print Services, praises LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric for its printing and mounting capabilities. It offers the shop the ability to print and mount graphics onto boards effortlessly. Once the graphic is printed, she can easily mount the material onto a board, and knows that when it’s rolled or transported it won’t stick to itself. Past projects entailed printing a graphic, spraying adhesive, and then carefully mounting the graphic onto a board. Now, the easier process allows her to simply print and stick the printed fabric onto a board, which has reduced print shop costs and improved turnaround times.

Easy Application and Removal

As with many large project installations, there may be concerns about adhering the graphic onto a surface, if not aligned properly, ruining the graphic, and having to start over. LexJet’s Solvent Print-N-Stick allows you to stick the fabric onto the desired surface, and if you need to readjust it, simply peel it off and start over without damaging the graphic. Jenny emphasizes its user-friendliness, particularly for smaller shops without professional installers, eliminating the need for costly services. Jenny said, “They don’t have to be afraid or have to hire a professional.” The material is easy for one person to use, and there isn’t the fear of stretching or ripping.

The tightly woven fabric is dimensionally stable, with a smooth finish and a satin sheen that brings graphics to life. Enhanced with an improved and more stable water-based adhesive, it removes easily with no residue, protecting walls and surfaces.

Product features:

  • Smoother weave provides detailed photographic image quality with vivid color
  • Perfect for wall graphics, contoured cutouts, and point-of-purchase displays
  • Compatible with UV, Latex/Resin, Eco-Solvent and Solvent inks
  • Certified Class A, ASTM E84 flame resistance & ANSI A127.1/A326.3 Slip Resistance for floor graphics

A truly versatile product, it can be used for wall cut-outs, wall murals, decals, signs, or window graphics.

Jenny stated, “Print-N-Stick is one of the most requested and widely used materials in our shop. The prints always look sharp, and the durability of Print-N-Stick makes it perfect for long-term wall graphics and event signage. As a shop with clients around the world, it’s important to have a material that I know will adhere well and look great each and every time.”

Sizes available:

LexJet Solvent Print-N-Stick Fabric – 54in x 100ft

LexJet Solvent Print-N-Stick Fabric – 60in x 100ft
