More than a Sale: Significant Price Reductions on Inkjet Blockout Films

Inkjet printing banner stand display graphicsHere’s a refreshing change of pace in a world gone haywire with rising commodity prices: LexJet has actually reduced the price of its Opaque Display Films – 6.5 Mil Gloss Opaque Display Film and 10 Mil Opaque Display Film – by up to 17 percent. Both polyester films are compatible with aqueous inkjet printers. This is not a limited-time promotional offer, but the new price going forward for these two high-quality inkjet imaging films.

Plus, first-time buyers of any LexJet Elite laminate get 30 percent off their first purchase. In addition to the price reduction and 30 percent off LexJet Elite sale for first-time buyers of the laminate, both Opaque Display Films come with a Lifetime Warranty when combined with LexJet’s Elite Polycarbonate and Elite Coex (5, 10 and 15 Mil) laminates.

Jason Price, owner of GraphX Direct, says they use LexJet 6.5 Mil Gloss Opaque Display Film laminated with LexJet Performance Textured Polypropylene Laminate (5 Mil) for the bulk of their retractable banner stand graphics. For display graphics applications, GraphX Direct laminates the 6.5 Mil Gloss Opaque Display Film with Elite Textured Coex Laminate (15 Mil).

“You just can’t compare the combination to any other product for retractable banner stands. We use it to set our banner stands and graphics apart because it images super clean and super sharp, plus the color matching is dead on every time,” says Price. “Curl is also a big deal and over the years I’ve tried all kinds of media for banner stands and this combination has proven to be the best to eliminate edge curl.”

For more information about the Lifetime Warranty, the new lower prices and to take advantage of both, contact a LexJet customer specialist at 800-453-9538.

Hauling Ice with Simple Removable Vinyl, Plus a Bonus Vinyl Install Video

The local waste management company wanted removable graphics for its trucks, but refuses to remove them!

When the Fort Wayne (Indiana) ice hockey team, the Komets, iced the coveted Turner Cup this past May, the local waste management company wanted to honor the team’s accomplishments with temporary mini-billboards on the sides of their trucks.

Designed by Perdue Printed Products & Designer Threads and printed by GraphX Direct, the celebratory graphics were intended to ride along for just a few weeks. Given the intended time period of the promotion and the relatively flat surface to which the graphics would be applied, Graphx Direct decided to use LexJet’s Simple 6 Mil Removable Vinyl (SUV).

“One of the conditions they had for the project was that the vinyl had to be able to come off, but they haven’t taken it off. They like it a lot, but we told them that the longer they leave it on, the less removable it will be,” says Jason Price, owner of Graphx Direct. “We also needed something with a heavier weight so that we didn’t have to laminate or tape it. We love the removable vinyl for other projects like temporary signage mounted to PVC because we can mount it with our laminator and not worry about it stretching, which is nice.”

We also use the Simple Flo Wrap Vinyl for partial wraps and box trucks. It’s easy to install and the price point ensures that we can make money printing on it,” adds Price.

Speaking of trucks, here’s a video that shows how easy it is to apply Simple Flo Wrap Vinyl to a delivery truck…
