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.

HP Adhesive Vinyl for the Win for Signarama Shop

Sometimes you can get stuck in your ways, but you just might be missing out a better adhesive option. That’s what the Signarama in Fort Myers, Fla., discovered when they learned about HP Premium Removable Gloss Adhesive Vinyl as an alternative for window graphics.

IMG_8960“We were using a 3M material and tried the HP Premium Removable Gloss Adhesive Vinyl,” says Mark Schmidt, general manager at Signarama, Fort Myers. “We found that prints were every bit as good at the 3M product, the HP material was easier to apply and reposition and all at a much better price. I would call that a win win all around.”
