The LexJet Experience: Bringing Applications to Life

The LexJet Experience was a success! Our open-house showcased equipment, RIP software and media applications for local customers. Representatives were on hand from Canon, EPSON and HP as well as GRAPHTEC, SignComp framing systems, Onyx and ImagePrint.

Set up on the third floor of the Sarasota, Fla. headquarters, the trade show-style event allowed LexJet customers the opportunity to discuss current technology, best practices and innovative applications with the vendors of their choice.

Vince Bejar, LexJet sales representative, had several customers in attendance. “They were excited about the opportunity to visit our office,” he says. “They enjoyed the hospitality and are looking forward to growing with our partnership.”

Timothy Mitchell, the resident expert in all things HP Latex, was available to discuss the best media to use with the latex printers, including his recent review of the new HP Prime Gloss Air GP.

With such an intimate setting, customers spent as much time as they needed with vendors. “I was happy about the way the customers engaged in conversations with everyone,” said HP Partner Business Manager, Frank DeMartino. “They had questions about specific applications for both the latex printers and the Z-series printers, and they wanted to learn more about the vertical trimmer on the Z9+.”

Craig Hellman, Senior Account Manager for Epson, agreed that customers were seeking solutions for unique applications. “There was a lot of interest in dye-sub printing,” Hellman said. “They want to know how to create promotional products, displays, signage and, of course, apparel.”

With Epson’s breadth of products, it wasn’t just the dye-sub applications that piqued their curiosity. “People are very interested in what the SureColor S-Series (solvent) printers can do. They asked about signage and display, but they also want to know about décor printing.”

As the day began winding down, everyone seemed to have the same question: “When are you going to do this again? This was a great learning experience.”

Given the positive feedback we’ve received, we look forward to doing another open house later this year. If you were in attendance, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact your LexJet sales representative at 800-453-9538, leave us a comment here on the blog, or visit our Facebook page.

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.
