LexJet Brings Fine Art Canvas Printing Capability to SUV Printers
April 25, 2008 - Sarasota, Fla. With wide-format print shops looking for ways to increase market share and
delve into new and profitable high-end markets, LexJet introduces Sunset Select Gloss Canvas SUV and Sunset
Select Satin Canvas SUV, which are compatible with solvent, low-solvent, and UV-curable printers (SUV).
The cotton/poly blend Sunset Select Canvas SUV products are based on LexJet’s award-winning Sunset line of
fine art and photographic papers and canvases preferred by professional photographers and fine-art
reproduction companies for their extremely wide color gamut and high Dmax, as well as their ability to hold fine
"The secret is in the coating of the canvas, which was painstakingly developed to maximize dot control,
boost apparent resolution, and expand the color gamut for solvent and UV-curable printing," says Alex Ried,
LexJet’s product manager. "As one of the primary developers of aqueous inkjet fine-art and photographic
media, we’ve translated our success with water-based technology into the solvent and UV-curable realm."
Sunset Select Gloss Canvas SUV and Sunset Select Satin Canvas SUV join LexJet’s growing line of solvent
and UV-curable fine art and photographic inkjet media, which includes Sunset Fine Art Gloss SUV by
Hahnemuhle, Prime Gloss SUV, and Prime Satin SUV.
"Because solvent printing was initially designed for outdoor signage and UV-curable printing for direct-to-board
graphics applications, continuous tone detail and high image resolution were not the most important
considerations," explains Camillia Mankovich, LexJet’s marketing director. "But as these markets have matured,
our customers have been looking for new avenues that offer higher margins and a greater return on their
solvent and UV-curable printer investment. Our market research has shown that there are vast, untapped
opportunities for print shops in the fine art and décor markets."
Sunset Select Gloss Canvas SUV and Sunset Select Satin Canvas SUV are both available in 54 in. x 75 ft.
and 60 in. x 75 ft. rolls, as well as a 30 in. x 30 ft. sample roll, and come with LexJet’s 30-day money-back
