Color MatchingFor the best and most consistent results, a profile should be created using an external color calibrator in conjunction with your RIP and/or color matching software.
HemBanner tape can be used and is preferred to sewing because the sewing process can scratch the coating. If sewing, a double-stitched hem is recommended with a maximum of five stitches per inch.
GrommetGrommets should be placed in the hemline along the length of the banner so that the grommet is through two layers. Corner grommets should be placed where the length and width hems cross, so that the grommet is through four layers. A reinforced corner is also recommended to increase durability.
Light FastnessThe fading time of inkjet ink is a direct result of the inks you choose, as well as the environment where the print is displayed. Contact the ink manufacturer to determine a specific ink's suitability for a particular application.

Optimal Service Environment-40° - 176° F (-40° C to 80° C).
HandlingDue to the absorptive nature of the coating, you should avoid touching the coated surface. It's always recommended that cotton gloves be used when handling inkjet coated materials. Rolls of LexJet film are supplied with the coated side facing out.
