Now Available from LexJet: A New Line of HP Adhesive Vinyl

Later this week, we will be unveiling a new HP Adhesive Vinyl line at SGIA Expo in Las Vegas. These new products will give print service providers the ability to offer a total HP solution if they are currently using HP Latex printers and ink.

These products will have competitive pricing to help PSPs save on production costs when compared to similar products currently on the market.

HP Prime offers three varieties of intermediate calendered vinyl products:

  • HP Prime Gloss CP has a bright white gloss finish with a clear permanent adhesive
  • HP Prime Gloss Air GP and HP Prime Matte Air GP offer air-egress liners for bubble free application and opaque gray adhesive that provides consistent image quality, regardless of the substrate color

HP Optimal offers:

  • HP Optimal Gloss Air GRP is a high-performance calendered vinyl with a gray repositionable adhesive and an air-egress liner. This multi-purpose vinyl works for everything from fleet graphics to wayfinding signs, giving PSPs the opportunity to reduce the number of products they keep on hand for different applications.

HP Polymeric Overlaminates:

  • HP Gloss Polymeric Overlaminate and HP Matte Polymeric Overlaminate, which can be used in conjunction with all HP Prime and HP Optimal products or as clear, printable films.

These additions to HP Large Format media are compatible with latex, solvent and UV-curable printers. “This vinyl line offers consistent and reliable image quality which means clients can increase productivity while they decrease waste and labor,” says Vince Bejar, LexJet sales specialist.

LexJet understands the focus on the origin and environmental impact of goods. With that concern in mind, these products are manufactured in America, are REACH compliant, and contain no chemicals that require notification in accordance with Proposition 65.

EnduraFab™ Textiles Now Acoustic Rated for Sound Absorption

For customers who want to reduce room noise, you can now offer latex-compatible EnduraFab™ Textiles for printing customizable sound-absorbing panels. All EnduraFab™ Textiles have received acoustic ratings for sound absorption and noise reduction when mounted to acoustic foam or board.

Choose any fine art, photography or graphics to create great-looking, customized sound-absorbing panels for use in theater rooms, recording studios, offices, restaurants, schools or anywhere you want to cut down the noise or improve a room’s acoustics. EnduraFab™ Textiles are finished with a proprietary chemical designed for exception image output on HP Latex printers. Colors are vibrant and the fabrics have a nice hand-feel that is easy to finish.

When the printed textile is mounted to acoustic foam or board, it acts like a sponge that absorbs all the sound and echo in the room. You can find a variety of acoustic foams and boards at providers like Acoustimac.com. When paired together with EnduraFab™, the design potential is limitless. You can even mount the boards to the ceilings to help cut down on echo and reverb in the space.

All EnduraFab™ Textiles have been acoustically rated. Check out the full portfolio:

As a print service provider and business owner, you know it’s critical to keep your eye on what you do best, while also smartly diversifying your business with new offerings for your customers. Gone are the days that we can get by on banner prints alone! Thanks to ever-evolving print technology and media offerings, new opportunities exists in décor, textile printing and even outdoor graphics.

When you start to shift your focus on what you’ve always done in wide-format printing to what you can do in the future, you’re sure to see a boost in your bottom line and discover new and exciting markets that will delight your customers. Check out these three key ways to grow your business and if you’re headed to SGIA Expo in Las Vegas, Oct. 18-20, be sure to stop by booth 1185 to learn more from our print specialists:

LexJet Flex Tek

Increasing your profits: As a customer-focused supplier of printers and media, we’re always on the lookout for the best products at the most advantageous prices for print service providers. We’re seeing some exciting offerings in outdoor signage, and we’ve brought those to market this year. We partnered with Avery Dennison to provide a full line of exciting vinyl products for a huge variety of applications. We’ve also launched LexJet Flex Tek, a PVC-free, recyclable, non-woven technical fabric that can be used as either a banner or a non-cracking canvas for gallery wraps. Print service providers should be excited about dual-action products like this, and we expect to bring more environmentally friendly, versatile products to market in the coming months.

Mastering new markets: If you’re a print service provider and you’re not at least sticking your big toe into the décor market, you’re missing out on a huge opportunity. We’ve seen a wide array of exciting finishes and designs introduced into our wallcovering lines that are compatible with latex and solvent. But even if you operate an aqueous printer, you can also get in on the action. Décor doesn’t stop on the walls – it includes canvas prints, fine art reproductions, photo enlargements, textile printing and so much more. Dye-sub printers have more options than ever, thanks to advances in outdoor metal panels, like those from the ChromaLuxe EXT line.

EnduraFab Textiles

Answering customer demand: If there’s one thing we’ve been hearing from end users it’s that they want more printed fabric! This started in the soft signage arena but has quickly expanded into trade show graphics as well as décor. PSP’s customers love fabric because it drapes elegantly in retail environments and can be easily swapped out by any employee. Fabrics used for trade show exhibits also quickly pack up and ship for less than films or vinyl. Screen printers cornered the market on printed fabrics for decades, but with the advances in latex-compatible textiles, we’re seeing gorgeous results in specially formulated fabrics for elegant, lightweight, easy-to-handle modern signage.

To discover products in each of these areas and to learn how to shift your focus on wide format and expand you’re offering, visit LexJet’s SGIA Expo booth 1185. We’ll be featuring the latest print technology and helping you to tie it to your customers’ applications.
