Sunset Coatings Featured in Sign & Digital Graphics Magazine


In the February edition of Sign & Digital Graphics magazine, LexJet’s Sunset Gloss Coating and Sunset Satin Coating were highlighted in the publication’s “Product Reviews,” under “Coatings for Canvas.”

In November, we released the next generation of the two coatings to offer easier application, a clear, crisp finish, greater UV protection and a formula that is NMP-free and complies with safety and health regulations.

We’re thrilled to receive the press coverage, and we’d love to hear from our customers, too. Have you tried the new Sunset Gloss Coating and/or Sunset Satin Coating? Please tell us about your experience in the comments below.

LexJet’s Tom Hauenstein Named to Technical Advisory Board

LexJet’s own Tom Hauenstein was recently named to the Technical Advisory Board for Sign & Digital Graphics magazine. You may remember Tom from such nationwide color management seminar tours as the Great Output Tour, which ran from 2007-2009.

Tom is a technical sales specialist for LexJet’s line of primers and coatings for HP Indigo presses, and brings his expertise in the printing process and color management to commercial and large-format printing customers across the U.S.

Tom is not only one of the most knowledgeable resources in the printing industry, as acknowledged by his inclusion on the Technical Advisory Board, but is a valuable educational resource for everyone at LexJet. His willingness to help his LexJet teammates ultimately translates into a better experience for LexJet’s customers.

“Tom really knows his stuff, understands our readership, and is great at explaining complex technical ideas to non-technical people,” says Ken Mergentime, executive editor for Sign & Digital Graphics magazine. “If I get a technical color-related article from someone, I can count on Tom to fact-check it for me and ensure its accuracy.”

Tom has written three articles for Sign & Digital Graphics since October 2012. You can pick up some great information and tips as two of his articles are currently available online:

Understanding Metamerism (March 2013 issue)

More than just a RIP (July 2013)

Tom also penned an article about maximizing color gamut by choosing the
right print media in the October 2012 issue Sign & Digital Graphics
magazine, page 33, which you can read online at:
