Introducing: NEW Sunset SUV Fine Art Paper

In response to demand in the market, we’re exciting to announce the new Sunset SUV Fine Art Paper 210g, a heavy-weight option for quality fine and photography reproduction that’s compatible with eco-solvent, solvent and UV ink technologies. This new-to-the-market SUV-compatible fine art paper is available in the U.S. and Canada.

Print houses that choose technology other than aqueous have had a difficult time finding a quality fine art paper that delivers exceptional results on their chosen printer technology. Our product development team at Sunset has delivered the answer with Sunset SUV Fine Art Paper 210g.

This new paper is an ideal option for large-volume fine art décor printers looking for a cost-conscious option that also has on-point quality. Our team at the LexJet Experience Center ran the paper on the Epson SureColor S80600, and reported excellent color reproduction and overall results.

Product Highlights:

  • Heavy-weight, natural white matte surface
  • Acid- and lignin-free for archiving
  • Soft-textured etching surface
  • Applications: art reproductions, fine-art photography, large-volume décor printing

Fredrix Metallic Gold Receives SGIA Product of the Year Award!

We’re excited to announce that Fredrix Metallic Gold Canvas has been named a 2019 SGIA Product of the Year winner in the Media – Textile – Canvas category. This product, along with Fredrix Metallic Pearl, was introduced earlier this year, and is available exclusively in the U.S. through LexJet.

Fredrix introduced this cotton-polyester blend canvas with an elegant gold finish that creates high-quality printed canvas. It’s the first-of-its-kind printable gold canvas with a 2-over-1 weave, specially engineered to create brilliant prints with the latest solvent, eco-solvent and latex inks.

Fredrix Metallic Gold delivers a glamorous, stand-out finish for artwork and signage in high-end retail environments, and looks especially dynamic when printed with black ink. PSPs can create metallic-enhanced canvas wraps that work easily with stretcher bars (such as GOframe) and deliver a consistent, subtle texture that Fredrix Print Canvases are known for.

SGIA’s annual Product of the Year competition is one of the most coveted awards for equipment and materials manufacturers in the U.S. The awards will be featured at Printing United in October, and Fredrix Metallic Gold will be featured in booth #6810.

Color, Fabrics & Customization Lead the Trends at RetailX

Our teammates at our parent company, S-One, made their debut at GlobalShop @ RetailX in Chicago last month, showcasing media options hand-selected for retail environments.

Fabrics were a huge trend all throughout the show, and S-One highlighted some tried-and-true favorites as well as brand-new to the market options.

“Fabric was everywhere, and it’s always going to continue to trend,” says sales rep Matt Radauscher. “The guys who don’t have dye-sub yet were happy to hear they had options to print fabrics on latex.”

Our team showcased HP Durable Backlit Fabric, a lightweight option suitable for SEG frames that’s latex-compatible. We also brought the brand-new adhesive fabric, Squid, which generated a ton of buzz. The fabric’s fibers are finished on one side with a special adhesive that is designed for windows. Squid can be printed or used alone to create privacy, block out the sun’s rays and/or display brand messaging. It’s an elegant solution for high-end retail and corporate environments. Stay tuned for more info to come soon!

Throughout the show floor, we were excited to see some emerging trends, most of which played around with dynamic color and customization. SuperColor Digital featured printable blackout fabrics that were enhanced with lighting features that actually changed the colors of the graphics (see photo).

We noticed that many of the exhibits focused on brick-and-mortar retail’s current challenge: competing with ecommerce by using dynamic, sometimes over-the-top displays to create a memorable in-store experience.

“When looking at the booth designs, nearly every one of them had some sort of electrical element in the displays themselves,” says S-One Marketing Director Terry Lynn Belzer. “Whether they were blow-up fixtures, floor fixtures or even animal displays with eyes that lit up. There was also a lot of focus on tactile experiences throughout the show.”

There was even an “Instagrammable” moment with a Game of Thrones-inspired display with a giant throne and sword that was a photo opp just waiting to happen.

Colorful, hyper-customized walls, windows, floors and even ceilings showcased the power of print throughout the exhibits at GlobalShop @ RetailX. To get a closer look at the materials that S-One showcased, please visit our RetailX page for product info or give one of our retail specialists a call at 800-453-9538.
