There’s been a lot of talk about floor, wall, and window graphics lately, so we decided to go to Michael Clementi, LexJet’s in-house solutions expert, to discuss some of the most popular and easiest products to use for floor, wall, and window applications.
Clementi talks about several products in LexJet’s portfolio in the video above. Here are some of the highlights:
When it comes to floor graphics, there are two options: a one-step solution or a two-step solution. Clementi suggests the one-step method for short-term graphics, and the two-step application will be down for an extended time.
“A product like LexJet Textured Indoor Floor and Wall has a slip-rated surface so you can print it and put it directly on the floor,” he says. “The two-step process requires you to have a printable product and a laminate. This solution is for medium to longer-term floors graphics.”
Wall graphics offer everything from short-term needs (up to two years), to intermediate-term (up to five years), to long-term (7+ years). LexJet Solvent Print-N-Stick Fabric has been a favorite among LexJet clients for the past few years for many reasons. It images well and will last up to two years, but it is also easy to install for just about anyone, from kids to adults.
“The difference between Solvent Print-N-Stick and a regular calendered wall film is that Print-N-Stick is a fabric so airflow can go right through the product [reducing air bubbles],” says Clementi. “Also, there’s no overstretching it. If adhesive vinyl gets overstretched, it might not match the panel next to it.”
For window solutions, there are several options: some visibility, total coverage, or privacy. Simple Low-Tack Clear and White are quick and easy options for minimal or full coverage and are great alternatives to static cling. LexJet Simple Perforated Window Vinyl 60/40 is the perfect “go-to” solution for privacy.
“Low Tack Clear and White have the same adhesive. It’s a very low tack microsphere adhesive that doesn’t have problems sticking to the release liner, and it won’t come up and ribbon on you at the edges when you are contour cutting like static cling can,” says Clementi. “The last alternative is window perf. It has 60% vinyl and 40% perforation, excellent for retail environments. The liner is super thick and holds the product extremely well, all the way through the print process and on to the install.”
