LexJet Impresses at the FASTSIGNS Convention

The 2019 International FASTSIGNS Convention was held Jan. 17 in Orlando, Fla., and the S-One Signs & Graphics (S-OneSG) team from LexJet was on hand to discuss the newest products available to all LexJet customers, including the FASTSIGNS franchises.

The team spoke with FASTSIGNS representatives from all over the country about profitable new opportunities: the latex printable EnduraFab™ Fabrics and SignComp SEG-less framing systems, which create clean, easy-to-install soft-signage displays when partnered together.

While the fabrics and framing were a hit in the Now Trending booth, it was the new line-up of HP Adhesive Vinyl that was the real star of the show. LexJet Sales Specialist Brian Feeney – who is not a professional installer – was on hand to show everyone how easy these products are to install, due to the air-release liner.

The on-hand demonstrations certainly captivate an audience, but it is the cost savings per roll that always garners the most attention. With such a price difference – as much as $0.20/sf savings based on MSRP – many people were pleased to discover the HP Adhesive Vinyl products would perform as well, if not better than, the products they are currently using.

By the end of the show, the FASTSIGNS team members were excited to delve into new profitable markets as well as explore money-saving opportunities with LexJet and the S-OneSG team.

VIDEO HOW-TO: No-Sew, Silicone-Free Frame for Fabric Graphics

Silicone-edge frames have grown in popularity in recent years as the ideal option for framing lightweight printed fabric used for signage or room decoration. Yet, using silicone requires sewing, and not every print shop has access to a machine … or a seamstress.

Which is why we’re excited to offer a sew-free, silicone-free option for easy print installation that anyone can do. It not only helps print shops, but makes it easier for your customers, too, who need to ask employees to switch out seasonal graphics, such as in a retail environment.

In the how-to video above, we used EnduraFab™ Frontlit Premier to print our graphic with a one-inch bleed. This latex-compatible fabric is a perfect choice, thanks to its thickness and tooth, which work well with the patented grip strips in SignComp’s Front Load Soft Signage Frame. The EnduraFab™ textile has also recently been acoustically rated for sound absorption to help reduce room noise.

To see how quickly and easily these two products work together, watch the video above. You’ll also need a squeegee, like this option from Avery, available at LexJet.
