LexJet Plays a Full House at The UPS Store Convention in Vegas

L to R: Bill Weiser, Kevin Drelich, Dylan Borden, Matt Bailey and Vince Bejar with Canon’s Pete Wright

The UPS Stores held their biennial convention in Las Vegas in early July. The franchisees meet every other year to allow the nationwide locations to get together to network, receive updates from corporate, meet with vendors who work with the stores and, of course, fun.

The theme for 2018 was “The Motivation Celebration” and several LexJet representatives were on hand to help motivate the attendees to celebrate.  Bill Weiser, Dylan Borden, Kevin Drelich, Matthew Bailey and Vince Bejar – along with Canon’s Pete Wright – were at the conference to discuss the benefits of adding wide format printing to the services offered by the UPS Stores.

The LexJet booth was one of the highlights of the show, as everyone who stopped by was interested in learning more about wide format printing. “Many locations aren’t printing yet, but they are eager to learn,” Bejar said. “Every time a customer would come to the booth, they always said ‘we hear you’re the people we need to see [to learn about printing]’. We were glad to get them excited about new opportunities.”

The team had the chance to discuss products like LexJet TRIBUTE Satin Photo Paper 240g, LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric, LexJet Sunset Reserve Gloss Canvas as well as many other diverse products with the attendees. As each person stopped by the booth and chatted with the LexJet reps, they received a raffle ticket for a chance to win a Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000.

Raffle winner John Appel of The UPS Store – 1277 congratulated by Vince Bejar

As the show came to a close, the energy around the LexJet booth became electric because it was time for the drawing. Out of over 400 raffle tickets, the lucky winner of the 44-inch printer was John Appel of The UPS Store – 1277 in Seattle, Wash.

With one extremely happy winner, open discussions about wide format printing and the introduction of unique products to the 1,800 attendees, the LexJet team was happy to play such an important part of the success of the conference and they are looking forward to the next one in 2020.

Getting the Most from Your Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000

Did you know that when you purchase a new Canon PRO-Series printer, you get a full 330 mL ink set? While some brands include a small starter set of inks at time of purchase, Canon includes full-sized cartridges. This means you can print and sell more graphics before purchasing more ink, increasing your return on investment.

LexJet is now giving you another way to increase the profitability of your printer. For the remainder of June, when you purchase a Canon PRO-4000, choose a roll of TRIBUTE Satin Photo Paper 240g or Premium Archival Matte (up to 42-inch). TRIBUTE Satin Photo Paper is an instant-dry photo-realistic paper for high-volume print reproductions like posters, displays, and portraits. Premium Archival Matte offers a smooth, matte finish that is perfect for high-quality fine art prints.

With a new printer, full set of inks, and a full roll of media, the Canon PRO-4000 will be a profitable addition to your business. If you would like more information on how to improve your printer ROI, contact a LexJet printer specialist at 800-453-9538 today.

Photo Papers the Pros Trust

Clark Marten KODAK media

Kodak has been a trusted name in the photo industry since 1888, when it was founded by George Eastman in Rochester, NY. These days, Kodak brings its mastery of all things photo-related to inkjet media that is compatible with Epson, Canon and HP printers.

Today’s Scouting Report focuses on Kodak Professional Inkjet Photo Papers, Glossy Finish and Lustre Finish. These papers were updated in 2012 to perform even better with modern inkjet printer inks. They have a larger color gamut and higher Dmax to produce images with richer blacks, a wide color spectrum and the finest details, even in shadows.

kodak professional photo paper glossyThese inkjet photo papers were color texted with Monaco Gamutworks, which revealed that the colors that printed on them were accurate to the color captured in-camera. This true-color output makes the Kodak photo papers ideal for weddings, high-end retail, landscape, portraits, exhibit photography and more. The lay-flat technology that keeps the papers from curling make them easy to work with and ideal for portraits, as well.

Kodak Professional Inkjet Photo Paper, Glossy Finish weighs in at 255 gsm with a smooth, high-gloss finish for maximum impact. Kodak Professional Inkjet Photo Paper, Lustre Finish weighs in at 255 gsm with a satin finish similar to e-surface papers used in traditional darkroom printing. Plus, they have the Kodak watermark printed on the back — a symbol recognized by discerning end-customers.

Both resin-based inkjet photo papers are available in various sheet and roll sizes up to 60 inches wide. Call a LexJet representative to learn more about Kodak’s modern media at 800-453-9538.
