Charrette Announces Two New Additions to Its Sentinel Product Line
Woburn, MA - Charrette, LLC., Charrette LLC, the largest wide format digital equipment and supplies provider in
the United States, introduced two new additions to its Sentinel Graphix media line. These additions further
extend Charrette’s leadership in the market for high-quality photo media for ink jet printing.
The new Graphix Universal Thermal Adhesive Paper is a 8 mil photo paper with permanent acrylic adhesive
that is compatible with most thermal ink jet printers using dye-based or UV pigmented inks. Universal Thermal
is available in gloss and satin finish and can be laminated using low temperature or pressure sensitive laminate
within minutes after printing. Even the gloss finish laminates easily with low temperature laminates.
The new Graphix Alternative Photo Paper is the perfect bridge between presentation papers and true photo
papers. Alternative Photo is an 8 mil coated matte paper that is truly universal with dye-based or UV pigmented
ink on thermal or piezo inkjet printers. Alternative Photo offers much higher resolution and ink load retention
than presentation paper at a much lower price point than your typical photobase paper.
"These papers represent our focus on universally compatible products," noted Jim Lally, Charrette’s marketing
director. "They broaden the options for our users by providing them with one product for multiple applications."
