During this time of social distancing, there are ways that local print shops can help members of the community. Creating graphics, updating and refreshing old graphics, and helping with décor renovations are great ways to help small businesses, as many non-essential companies and organizations are closed.
If you’re looking for inspiration and ways you can help, check out our collection of LexJet brandUP stories:
When Cat Depot moved to its new location in Sarasota, Fla., volunteers taped pictures of cats to the windows and displayed operational hours on regular office paper that had to be replaced often. Because the non-profit organization relies heavily on volunteers and donations, eye-catching graphics were not a priority. That’s when the idea of LexJet’s brandUP was born. A group of LexJet summer interns visited Cat Depot to see what type of graphics were needed and what media would be required. To replace the taped images on the front windows, the interns selected Simple Perforated Window Vinyl 70/30, to help with the interior and exterior doors, they chose LexJet Simple Flo Wrap Vinyl, and to help with some temporary signage, LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric was the perfect solution.
The owners of Average Joe’s Grooming were looking to add some puppy love to their new space and make it more functional. Installing LexJet Simple Perforated Window Vinyl (70/30) on the windows reduced glare to benefit the groomers while passersby were greeted with a welcoming image of a larger-than-life dog. To liven up the interior walls, the team printed smiling dogs and cute cartoons on HP PVC-free Durable Smooth Wall Paper and LexJet Solvent Print-N-Stick Fabric.
Felts Audubon Preserve is perfect for bird and nature enthusiasts. It is tucked away among the neighborhoods of rural Palmetto, Fla. Unfortunately, vandals damaged the signs that were originally designed and donated by a local Boy Scout troop. As a brandUP project, LexJet donated ChromaLuxe EXT metal photo panels with graffiti and fade-resistant properties that stand up to vandalism as well as the tough Florida sunshine. We partnered the ChromaLuxe panels with LexJet InFuze® Rigid Substrate Dye-Sublimation Paper and used the Geo Knight Digital Knight 20×25 Jumbo Swinger for the transfer process.
