In the Refresh Your Skills in Orlando article of Wide-Format & Signage magazine, editor Jennifer Wilberscheid lists Hop-Syn as a must-visit “showstopper” at the upcoming Graph Expo, September 25-28. This year, the event is taking place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.

Graph Expo 2016 Meet New People

The synthetic paper manufacturer will be exhibiting at Booth#2730 and will have free samples of its multiple paper grades available for attendees.

 

At Graph Expo, Hop-Syn will feature Hop-Syn TO, a bright white, 99-percent opaque synthetic paper with a high-opacity that will help prevent reverse side images from showing under direct sunlight. Tear resistant and 100-percent waterproof, Hop-Syn TO is designed for printing retail banners and block-out window signs, and can withstand harsh environments. Its high-dyne level and micro porous surface makes it suitable for offset, screen, flexo, and UV inkjet printing equipment.

 

In addition to the Hop-Syn TO synthetic paper grade, the company will also feature its XT paper grade. Similar to the TO, the XT is also 100-percent waterproof. The XT paper grade is a bright white, high-opacity synthetic designed for printing durable POP displays for both indoor and outdoor applications.

 

Graph Expo attendees are encouraged to stop by Hop-Syn’s Booth to learn more about the popular synthetic papers. Experts are on hand to discuss customers’ upcoming printing projects and the ideal paper grade for specific requirements, such as POP displays, window signs and banners, retail packaging and more.

SGIA 2016 On SiteDubbed the vinyl alternative, Hop-Syn synthetic papers drew crowds at the recent Label Expo and SGIA Expo. Garnering the attention from big brands, printers and print buyers alike, the Expos have proved to be a huge success for Hop-Syn as booth traffic reached an all time high. The company is looking forward to seeing the trend continue as the team gears up for the upcoming Graph Expo, taking place September 25-28, in Orlando. 

 

“We are seeing the demand for Hop-Syn synthetic paper grow as more brands are seeking alternatives to traditional vinyl and other printed pieces. We met with hundreds of companies over the course of the conferences, and discussed print projects from transit and POP displays to backlit window signs and banners. The events were very successful,” comments Jack Smith, Vice President, Hop-Syn of Hop Industries.

 

At the upcoming Graph Expo, Hop-Syn will be exhibiting at Booth#2730, and will feature several synthetic paper grades including the XT and G2. The XT is 100-percent waterproof and tear resistant. Its bright white, high-opacity is designed for printing durable POP displays for both indoor and outdoor applications. The Hop-Syn G2 paper grade is a heavy-gauge synthetic for weather-resistance. All Hop-Syn synthetic papers are environmentally-friendly and a cost-effective alternative to vinyl, which is why big brands are choosing Hop-Syn to satisfy their sustainability requirements, while keeping their budget in check.
