Centuries-Old Company Light-Years Ahead of Its Time

In the modern fine art paper world, you will find many great products available that meet different quality requirements and artistic demands. However, there is one brand that stands out from the rest for its centuries-old history, purity, and excellence, inevitably attracting many fans worldwide. That brand is Hahnemühle.

Founded in 1584, Hahnemühle has evolved and transcended all trends by producing fine art papers using ancient recipes from high-quality cotton fibers, pulp or plant fibers, and pure spring water, making Hahnemühle one of the leading paper producers worldwide.

Sustainability is top of mind in today’s business environment, but Hahnemühle had already begun its sustainable journey long before it was a popular global movement. As early as 1965, Hahnemühle was the first paper manufacturer to produce exclusively vegan artists’ papers and still does not use animal glues or other animal substrates in their paper production practices today.

In 2008, as part of its “Green Rooster” initiative to support regional, national, and international environmental education programs, Hahnemühle’s sustainable papers were created from unique raw materials like rapidly renewable bamboo grass, which led to the creation of an innovative new line of papers, the “Natural Line.” This new product line is made of bamboo, hemp, agave, and newly added sugar cane, available for fine art photo prints, digital art, or art reproductions. Some important environmentally friendly factors to note about these selected plants are that they require minimal maintenance, can grow quickly, require little water, and don’t need any pesticides.

All Natural Line papers are:

  • Vegan​​​​​​​
  • Resistant to aging
  • Acid-free

Named German “Brand of the Century” for the third time in a row by an advisory board of top brand experts, Hahnemühle continues to surpass its own quality standards through the centuries and looks ahead to protect and preserve natural resources for future generations of artists.

LexJet Holiday Hours

November is here! And the holidays will be here before we know it. Here are LexJet’s holiday hours so you can plan your on-hand inventory for the remainder of the year:

  • Thanksgiving – LexJet will be closed Thursday, Nov. 24 and Friday, Nov. 25
  • Christmas – We will be closed Monday, Dec. 26
  • New Year’s – We will be closed Monday, Jan. 2

As always, you can order online during the holiday hours, but please note that any orders placed online will not ship until the next available business day. This year, the next available business day for Thanksgiving will fall on a Monday, and for Christmas and New Year, it will fall on a Tuesday.

Transform Your Environment with Eco-Friendly Window Graphics

When visiting an office, retail space, or residence, the ambiance is felt by the lighting, décor, and general aesthetics of that environment. In architecture and design, decorative window graphics are recognized as a high-quality, beneficial, simple, yet dramatic way to transform any space, affecting the general ambiance and your visitor’s experience.

As the digital printing industry moves towards becoming more environmentally conscious, our eco-friendly window graphics from our friends at LINTEC offer solutions never before seen in our space. The two LINTEC 2 Mil Recycled window films can be used to enhance storefront décor or as wall coverings. These high-quality films are optically clear, made from 80% recycled PET materials, manufactured with 40% less energy, and offer excellent clarity, as well as dimensional stability.

Lintec Eco Film
The window films are compatible with the latest UV printing technology and offer a scratch-resistant coating to help prevent damage during the installation process. They’re ideal for displays in high-traffic areas that may be susceptible to physical contact.

Ambiance and style aren’t the only features of digital window graphics made by LINTEC. Other key benefits include:

  • Enhanced privacy
  • UV protection
  • Additional space to expand your brand
  • Durability
  • Versatility
  • Scratch resistance
  • Easy installation

Opting for these high-quality, and eco-friendly window films is an ideal choice for your business’ sustainability strategy and the future of our environment.

Defining Your Sustainability Strategy

LexJet understands our customers’ desire to offer eco-friendly business solutions and products for environmentally conscious consumers. As buyers become more aware of their daily impact on the environment, aspirations of becoming more environmentally conscious may shape their purchasing decisions, leading to searches for affordable, sustainable, and quality products. Having a sustainability strategy is an excellent step in the right direction for your business.


“50% of consumers rank sustainability as a top five value driver on average across categories, which means it is an important purchase criteria and is a key differentiator in the overall value proposition.” Global Sustainability Study 2021, Simon-Kucher & Partners


Environmentally Conscious Products

We provide multiple ways to help you become an eco-friendlier business, making it easy and hassle-free to recycle your empty ink and toner cartridges with our Ink Recycling Program. Since the launch of this program in 2021, we have received over 2 tons of cartridges for recycling.

LexJet also offers more sustainable media options, like a recycled canvas product made from 100% recycled water bottles under the Elements brand. Additionally, we carry photo papers, banner materials, fabrics, and films that can be recycled into various products.

Sustainability is also a priority for our other brands like HP, named by Newsweek as one of the 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World for the 7th year in a row. Another brand walking the walk is Kodak. In its 2021 Sustainability Report, One World One, Kodak announced a 55% increase in solvent recovery business (2016-2021).

Earth Day is a wonderful time to remind us of the crucial role we all play in reducing our carbon footprint. Becoming more environmentally conscious and understanding the demands of eco-friendly consumers may significantly impact your business’s profitability now and in the future.
