Make Holiday Wishes Come True with Photo Tex

When you ask children what they want to be when they grow up, the answers can vary from baseball player to astronaut to ballerina. While not every kid grows up to be Freddie Freeman, Buzz Aldrin, or a Rockette, fostering their dreams and creativity is essential, so why not turn their room into an imagination station.

With Photo Tex, you can create the perfect “Field of Dreams,” “Moon Landing Site,” or even the “Nutcracker Suite,” and it is easily removable and repositionable, which means it won’t damage the wall’s surface or leave any residue behind.

Photo Tex is a self-adhesive fabric used to create simple cut-outs or full wall graphics, and it doesn’t require professional installation; anyone can do it. The repositionable adhesive allows for easy removal and re-application, no matter how many times you change your mind.

Available in aqueous or solvent solutions, Photo Tex is compatible with a variety of wide-format printers. It is also available with 95% opacity. The fabric sticks to any non-porous flat surface, and the sharp graphics will not shrink, wrinkle or rip in any temperature change.

Turn dreams into reality this holiday season. Whether you are a parent trying to find the perfect gift or a printshop helping “Santa” create magic on Christmas morning, choose Photo Tex for the perfect holiday gift this year.

Of course, it’s not just about helping kids’ dreams come true. Adults looking to change up anything from the living room to the board room can also benefit from designing and decorating with Photo Tex.

To learn more about this versatile fabric, visit the Photo Tex booth in The LexJet Experience or contact a LexJet sales specialist at 800-453-9538.

 

Join Us as LexJet Celebrates America Recycles Day

Today is the 24th anniversary of America Recycles Day (aka National Recycling Day). While recycling has been around since Victorian England – if not longer – it wasn’t until Nov. 15, 1997, that the official holiday was created.

According to the EPA, recycling efforts have increased from 6% in 1960 to 32% as recently as 2018. So, the process is working, but there’s still a long way to go.

While recycling has increased over the years, ink cartridges are still tossed in the trash, destined to end up in landfills across the country. 375-million ink cartridges per year are thrown away rather than recycled. That’s 1,000,000 a day; 11 cartridges per second1.

To help combat the staggering statistics, LexJet made a small gesture, hoping to spark a big change: the Inkjet Recycling Program.

Participating in the program, introduced earlier this year on Earth Day, is as easy as 1-2-3, once you have your box of OEM cartridges (20 lb. minimum):

1) Fill out the information
2) Download the prepaid labels
3) Schedule a UPS pick-up

Arrangements can be made for pallet shipping if you have more than 100 cartridges.

All OEM brands and sizes are accepted, from wide format to desktop. At this time, we cannot take toner tubes, toner bottles, or generic cartridges.

In addition to encouraging recycling, LexJet offers products manufactured with recycled materials. Elements Andes Recycled Satin Canvas SUV has a polyester resin made 100% from recycled water bottles.

If you would like to learn more about LexJet’s sustainable initiatives, as well as those of the other S-One Holdings Corporation subsidiaries, check out our Eco-Solutions booth at The LexJet Experience.

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.
