Print shops looking for a versatile, economical and high-quality fabric to include in their product offering for their aqueous inkjet printers now have a dependable choice with LexJet's new line of Poly Select fabrics.
The polyester fabrics were engineered for short-term outdoor applications like special events and longer-term indoor applications, such as banner stands, retail point of purchase, trade shows, corporate lobbies, table drapes, flags, backdrops and more.
"We've actually gained in our marketplace because the customers like the LexJet fabric so much. A lot of customers run specials and they can take it down, fold it up, store it and when they start that special again they can put it back up," said Todd Barlow, graphic design and special event coordinator for RMC Distributing in Pueblo, Colo. "It's versatile, flexible, easy to work with and the colors come out brilliant. We use it just about everywhere and for every type of promotion and special event."
The fabrics are available in three weights: Light, Medium and Heavy. LexJet Poly Select Light is 7.5 mils thick and weighs in at 155g. With its tight, barely discernible weave it's ideal for reproducing colorful, finely detailed high-end images and designs. LexJet Poly Select Heavy is 13 mils thick and weighs 230g. It lays flat so it's easy to work with in production and it's glare resistant to ensure consistent viewing in any lighting situation. LexJet Poly Select Medium combines the tight weave of the lighter fabric with additional durability and thickness (12 mils).
"Canon, Epson and HP have greatly improved their aqueous inkjet technology. The ink sets in the latest generation of printers are more durable and provide a wider color gamut, so it was important to our customers that we make the most of those improvements with a fabric line that maximizes the latest printers' capabilities," said Dione Metnick, LexJet's product manager.
All three fabrics—LexJet Poly Select Light, LexJet Poly Select Medium and LexJet Poly Select Heavy—are available and shipping from one of LexJet's nationwide network of distribution centers for one-day delivery to most of the Continental US. LexJet Poly Select Medium is currently available in only one roll size: 36 inches by 150 feet. Poly Select Heavy and Poly Select Light are available in 24 inch, 36 inch, 42 inch, 50 inch, and 60 inch widths.
