For print shops, sign companies, in-house print facilities and other businesses with wide-format printing capabilities, LexJet has improved its popular line of production inkjet photo papers to maximize the latest aqueous inkjet technology and to help ensure the most efficient and cost-effective production workflow possible.
LexJet's next-generation production photo papers – 8 Mil Production Satin Photo Paper, 8 Mil Production Gloss Photo Paper, 8 Mil ImagePro Satin and 8 Mil ImagePro Gloss – have been updated to provide optimum image quality with the latest aqueous-ink wide-format printers from HP, Canon and Epson.
"ImagePro Gloss and Satin are thicker and heavier premium papers, making them easier to handle in production while creating greater perceived value with end-use customers for applications like stand-alone posters," says Alex Ried, LexJet's product manager. "Production Gloss and Satin are an economical alternative perfect for all kinds of point-of-sale and display graphics applications."
The new microporous coating found on both the ImagePro and Production photo papers dries instantly for worry-free, high-volume production. Prints are ready to handle and laminate almost immediately for faster turnaround on time-sensitive projects. Moreover, the improved white point provides sharper image quality, a wider color gamut and greater contrast.
"We typically use 8 Mil Production Satin Photo Paper because we love the finish and it works well for everyday printing on jobs both large and small," says Christian Schmid, production manager for Essyx design + fabrication in Johnson City, Tenn. "The prints always turn out right, the image quality is very consistent and the price point is great."
All of the new production photo papers are available in standard roll widths and lengths, from 24 to 60 inches wide on 100-foot and 200-foot rolls, and are available and shipping from one of LexJet's nationwide network of distribution centers.
