How to Apply Infinium to Canvas and a Wood Coaster

Printing canvas with a conformable materialLexJet’s new Infinium is the industry’s first transportable graphic. When properly applied it takes on the characteristics – the look and feel – of the material to which it’s applied.

In a typical advertising and promotional program, for instance, graphics for events, trade shows, retail environments and promotional materials often require different types of materials on different printer technology platforms.

With Infinium, one inkjet printable material can be transported to just about everything. This ensures accuracy and brand consistency as well as a reduction in time and materials. Moreover, because it is conformable to almost anything, it can be used creatively in unusual applications, like ceiling tiles, bricks, shoes, footballs, leather and ceramics, as well as more traditional materials like glass, wood and graphic arts boards.

Infinium is not a paper, it’s not a film, and it’s not a transfer material. Simply put, it’s a printable material with laminate and adhesive qualities all in one material. So, for applications that required multiple materials and multiple steps, Infinium does it with one material in two steps: Print and apply.

You can apply it to practically any surface you can imagine, including irregular surfaces and curves, using heat, water or a primer (LexJet Infinium Bond). This technology allows you to pick the surface or substrate you want to image, the print method you want to use and the application method.

LexJet Infinium Gloss and Infinium Matte are compatible with solvent, low solvent, latex and UV-curable printers, and like all LexJet products they come with a 30-day money-back guarantee and super-fast $9.99 flat rate shipping from LexJet’s nationwide network of distribution centers.

In the instructional videos below you’ll see how Infinium retains the texture and look of gesso-coated canvas and a wood coaster when applied using a thermal laminator…
