Innovating for the Last 25 Years
At LexJet (Both 1185), they have taken the lead in innovating new and improved ways to produce wide-format graphics for the past 25 years. From the first LexJet products that revolutionized business signage and tradeshow graphics, to offering the biggest brands in décor and sign printing, they have helped form this industry from the earliest days of digital printing.
If there’s one thing LexJet knows, it’s that the wide-format market is forever evolving and becoming more diverse every day. To stay current, print service providers must change up what they’re offering to their customers. No one can get by with banners alone anymore! By expanding their offerings, PSPs not only serve the growing trends in décor, textile printing and double-duty substrates, but they’ll also see a boost for their bottom line, discover new and exciting markets and deliver the capabilities their customers and designers are demanding.
At LexJet, they are always on the lookout for the best products at the most advantageous prices for print service providers. They are seeing exciting offerings in outdoor signage, and have brought those to market this year. They partnered with Avery Dennison to provide a full line of vinyl products for a huge variety of applications. They also launched LexJet Flex Tek, a PVC-free, recyclable, non-woven technical fabric that can be used as either a banner or a non-cracking canvas for gallery wraps. Print service providers should be excited about dual-action products like this, and the company expects to bring more environmentally friendly, versatile products to market in the coming months.
In the décor market, LexJet has seen a wide array of finishes and designs introduced into the wallcovering lines that are compatible with latex and solvent. But even if you operate an aqueous printer, you can also get in on the action. Décor doesn’t stop on the walls — it includes canvas prints, fine art reproductions, photo enlargements, textile printing and so much more. Dye-sub printers have more options than ever, thanks to advances in outdoor metal panels, like those from the ChromaLuxe EXT line.
Make no mistake: End users want more printed fabric! This started in the soft signage arena but has quickly expanded into trade show graphics as well as décor. PSP’s customers love fabric because it drapes elegantly in retail environments and can be easily swapped out by any employee. Fabrics used for trade show exhibits also quickly pack up and ship for less than films or vinyl. Screen printers cornered the market on printed fabrics for decades, but with the advances in latex-compatible textiles, LexJet is seeing gorgeous results in specially formulated fabrics for elegant, lightweight, easy-to-handle modern signage.
