LexJet Holiday Hours are Just Around the Corner

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. 25 and Friday, Nov. 26
  • Christmas – We will be closed Friday, Dec. 24
  • New Year’s – We will be closed Friday, Dec. 31

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, Christmas, and New Year all fall on a Monday.

Online shopping continues to increase this year, and that means UPS and FedEx are at peak capacity, and the addition of holiday shipping could extend delays even more.

If you have any questions or if we can help you plan your holiday inventory, please give us a call at 800-453-9538 or visit LexJet.com.

‘Tis Better to Give than Receive, so Gift Memories This Holiday Season

Capturing memories is a year-round activity, but it’s turning those memories into gifts that make the holidays unique. From weddings to births to bringing home a new pet, remembering a special moment requires a special photo paper, and LexJet has several award-winning options.

Vacation Memories

Remind your loved ones of the beauty of an exotic trip or wild nights under the Vegas lights with Sunset Photo Metallic Paper. The metallic finish is perfect for oversized wall art of bright cityscapes or vast landscapes mounted. You can mount the prints to board and display them without a frame. Photo Metallic offers rich colors, shine, and glossiness with maximum detail and minimal glare.

Portraits and More

When it’s time to give the gift of school portraits, family photos, or wedding albums, award-winning Sunset Photo eSatin Paper is what the pros use. Heavyweight and reminiscent of darkroom photos, Photo eSatin has a slightly textured finish that resists fingerprints and smudges. Sunset Production eSatin Paper is another option. It’s not quite as heavy but is an excellent choice for high-volume printing.

Family Heirlooms

Today’s photo is tomorrow’s family heirloom. LexJet Premium Archival Matte is the perfect choice for long-term archivability because it is acid-free for a longer print life with pigment inks. The smooth matte finish is ideal for displaying photos in a brightly lit room without worrying about unwanted reflections.

No matter which option you choose to spread holiday cheer, you can’t go wrong with LexJet’s photo papers. They make everyone’s holiday merry and bright.

For more information on these photo papers and other gift ideas, visit us online at LexJet.com or contact your favorite LexJet Holiday Elf at 800-453-9538 (800-4LEXJET).

One of the scariest parts of a haunted house is the creepy old windows. With these solutions, there’s no need for hard-to-see-through windows:

LexJet WR Window Graphic Film, compatible with aqueous and latex inks, is perfect for temporary window graphics and has a repositionable and removable adhesive. It’s an excellent choice for a “Keep Out” sign to warn people away from the mysterious mansion. And, once Halloween is over, simply remove the dire warning and leave no residue behind.

Creepy ChromaLuxe Panels

Just because a house is haunted doesn’t mean there can’t be great décor! With ChromaLuxe Panels, everyone will be dying to see your art.

ChromaLuxe EXT – Gloss White gives a little extra pop to outdoor art and signs. Using dye-sublimation technology, ChromaLuxe EXT can liven up even the dimmest of spirits.

ChromaLuxe Textured Aluminum Photo Panels hides fingerprints from even the best ghost hunters. The texture can’t hide the bright colors, though. Images produced with ChomaLuxe Textured are just as vibrant as the smooth panels.

LexJet InFuze® Rigid Substrate Dye-Sublimation Paper pairs nicely with all the ChromaLuxe panels. They go together like orange and black or witches and black cats.
