Wide Format Printing Trends and Opportunities

August 21, 2017

Unequivocally, the biggest trend in wide-format printing is the growth of the UV inkjet and latex printing. Hop Industries, manufacturer of Hop-Syn synthetic paper, is also experiencing continued growth in this segment as brand manufacturers and large retail stores use the durable substrate for UV-printed P-O-P displays and outdoor signage. As this market segment continues to flourish, print partners can use Hop-Syn to take the lead. Here’s how:

 

Opportunities for Wide-Format Printers
Print partners can take advantage of the growing UV inkjet trend by engaging with their customers and sharing the benefits of using Hop-Syn synthetic paper for retail signs, in-store posters, banners, blockout window posters and back-lit displays. More environmentally-friendly than banner vinyl and polystyrene, Hop-Syn synthetic paper does not contain chlorine, stearates, heavy metals, or other harsh chemicals that are cancer causing or detrimental to the environment. The synthetic paper is 100% recyclable and produced under ISO 9000 standards.

 

Durable, Sustainable, and Made for UV Inkjet
Designed for UV inkjet specifically, Hop-Syn is a durable substrate that makes brands stand out, in terms of print quality and durability, as compared to pulp-based substrates and less environmentally friendly plastics such as vinyl and polystyrene. Its high dyne level and bright white finish prints sharp definition graphics with high-color density. Suitable indoor or outdoor displays, Hop-Syn also offers high temperature resistance (-60F up to 220F) and one year UV resistance against direct sunlight.

 

Keep Hop-Syn on Hand

Print partners can order any size quantity of Hop-Syn synthetic paper to keep in house or to store at Hop Industries NJ-based warehouse. Custom sizes are also easily facilitated with Hop Industries in-house converting services. Orders of stock inventory are shipped within 24 hours of being placed. Custom-sheets and roll sizes can take between 2-3 days.
