The “+” in LightJets+ stands for a lot: framing, Tru Vue AR and other acrylic finishings, stand-off systems, a wide range of paper options, and superior customer service. We are now excited to add to this list, latex ink printing on art canvas and watercolor paper for a more fine art look.
Both materials are used in our HP DesignJet L26500 printer which uses latex inks. HP first introduced latex ink in 2008 as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional solvent inks without sacrificing quality and durability. These ink are composed of 70% water and 30% latex polymer and pigment particle additives. While being eco-friendly, these inks still ensure durability and performance with vivid colors and sharp details.
If you have high volume printing needs, odds are you have multiple images as well– and LightJets+ understands. With high volume needs, one may think high cost comes with it. At LightJets+, exceptional quality and first-rate customer service is a priority, but ensuring you get the best value for your money is also important and that’s why LightJets+ offers image nesting as our standard method for saving you money.
Image nesting is a rather simple process that enables us to offer you the absolute most competitive price– saving you up to 70% over our competitors. Starting with our standard half page (50″ x 60″) and allowing up to a full page (50″ x 120″), our experienced technicians will arrange your images to maximize the space with no constraints on the number of images or sizes. As your volume increases, so does your discount allowing us to offer prices as low as $1.65/sf.
The LightJets+ nesting process allows us to offer great prices without sacrificing the quality of your prints. With a collaborative group of dedicated professionals including fine art photographers, world class imaging and color specialists, a LightJets+ master technician, and personalized hands-on customer care specialists, you are sure to get exactly what you need for your images and at the best available price.
Displaying an image, whether it be in a museum, an exhibit, or a commercial setting requires careful planning in order to get the best quality. One thing that is often overlooked, in the finishing process is the barrier between photo and frame. Traditionally, this is glass. Today, however, a significantly better option is available in the form of acrylic.
Tru Vue is an industry leader in acrylic finishing. Starting out in 1946 manufacturing glass dials for radio and later TV screens, they pioneered the way in non-glare glass before moving into acrylic. Now, they produce an impressive line of glass and acrylics that are used in industries ranging from large format displays to consumer electronics to aviation.
Tru Vue’s Conservation Reflection Control Acrylic has various benefits starting with its anti-reflective qualities. It allows 92% light transmission with only an 8% reflection, thus minimizing the “mirror” effect that commonly occurs with traditional glass. At the same time, Conservation Reflection Control Acrylic blocks 99% of harmful indoor and outdoor UV light from damaging the image. This UV light might otherwise cause the paper to become faded, discolored, and brittle.
LightJets+ is excited to offer Conservation Reflection Control Acrylic as a part of our custom finishing selections. For more information, visit our website http://www.lightjetsplus.com or call us at 1.888.756.5447
