Dancing to market is Samba Fabric, the newest member of the Pure Color™ media family. Samba's bright white fabric enriches colors making them bolder
and even more vivid to capture attention and captivate the eye. Intended for use indoors, Samba has a variety of applications, such as retail and point-
of-purchase displays, as well as pole pocket banners and indoor banner displays. It's an economic design solution that works well with display systems
such as Neschen's Roll Up and Roll Up Deluxe, due to its ability to lay flat and produce very minimal curl. Additionally, its' backlit capabilities and ease
of installation add to Samba's long list of benefits.
Pure Color™ Samba is 100% polyester and only weighs 5 oz/yd2. This lightweight yet durable fabric can be easily cut, making it highly customizable to
satisfy an endless array of ideas and needs. Samba's ability to be incorporated into several types of fabric frame systems is not its only versatile feature.
It has also been designed for use with all printers - solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV. Essentially, Samba delivers amazing value by offering many of
the same features as higher-end fabrics, but at half the cost.
"Samba is an entry level textile for customers who are new to printing on fabric or who want to try an easy to use fabric that has a richer feel and look than
PVC" reveals Tiffany Guard, Senior Product Manager of Inkjet Media, Neschen Americas. "The most attractive feature of Pure Color™ Samba, besides its
cost, is that its bright white point simply makes colors pop."
Samba is currently available in rolls measuring 54" x 100' and 60" x 100' with sample rolls measuring 20" x 10'.
Neschen Broadens Self Adhesive Digital Design Line to Include
SolvoPrint Easy Dot
Neschen Americas has one of the most versatile self-adhesive digital design media on the market. Its latest addition, SolvoPrint™ Easy Dot, features a
special dot patterned adhesive, which creates air channels that allow for both bubble- and wrinkle-free installation. Describing SolvoPrint™ Easy Dot as
being easy to use or easy to install is an understatement considering that no special tools, equipment or training is required and the product can be
repositioned during installation to get it exactly right. All that's needed is the desire to create clear, high quality graphics applied to areas with high
visibility, such as windows, exhibits or point-of-purchase retail signage.
SolvoPrint™ Easy Dot is a 4 mil self-adhesive vinyl available in a matte white or clear frosted finish. The matte works especially well for wall graphics,
creating a non-glare finish so that light reflection is not an issue. The clear version is an excellent choice for windows, and can be reverse printed for
interior applications. Recommended for use on flat surfaces, SolvoPrint™ Easy Dot is perfect for indoor use and can even be used outdoors for up to
two years. Designed for use with solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV-curable printers, its comprehensive printer compatibility makes it a desirable and
Besides its revolutionary dot pattern making installation a breeze, it is also equally easy to remove SolvoPrint™ Easy Dot. It requires no heat or special
chemicals for removal and leaves no residue behind. Best of all, these features are easy on the wallet by allowing the reuse of substrates and reducing
the cost of labor and materials.
"SolvoPrint™ Easy Dot is an exciting addition to an already robust line of self-adhesive digitally printable materials," states Tiffany Guard, Sr. Product
Manager of Inkjet Media, Neschen Americas. "This highly versatile and unique media immediately expands the capabilities of sign shops and exhibit
houses, making them an invaluable resource for end users to increase their display options and solutions."
Other self-adhesive stand outs offered by Neschen are ClearGrip and Pure Color™ Fresco AdTex™. A 3.2 mil, removable clear self-adhesive vinyl, ClearGrip
is exclusively used to create and install window graphics allowing for bubble-free application thanks to the well known gudy® window by SEAL
adhesive technology. Perfect for retail signage and point-of-purchase displays, ClearGrip lets windows do the talking as consumers walk by. Pure Color™
Fresco AdTex™ is clearly the media of choice for wall graphics in terms of ease of use and creativity. Fresco AdTex™ can be tiled together to create
grand murals or custom cut into decals for premium placement. It is also the choice of Wide Format Imaging readers, earning a 2013 Reader's Choice
Top Product Award in the fabric & textile category. A lightweight 5 oz/yd2 polyester textile with a removable and repositionable adhesive, Fresco
AdTex's bright white, matte fabric reduces glare from lighting and offers enough opacity to cover practically any surface.
SolvoPrint™ Easy Dot and ClearGrip, along with Pure Color™ Fresco AdTex™, are three of the premier self-adhesive media choices on the market and
Neschen Americas is proud to deliver such top notch quality to its customers.
As your world gets bigger, busier, bolder and more competitive at each turn, your customers are asking for more. Large window graphics. Colorful vehicle
wraps. Trade show banners that need to stand out in a crowd. How do you give them what they need and not break your bank doing it? The
answer is simple- the SEAL 65 EL.
With an affordable price tag that combines legendary SEAL performance with ease of use for new users, the 65 EL translates into a money-saving
laminator that, at the end of the day, will put more money in your pocket- and keep your customers coming back. Ideal for mounting and laminating
pressure sensitive graphics, the 65 EL comes equipped with our unique auto-grip supply shafts for easy webbing, has a manually adjusted nip to 1"
for effortless handling of most substrates and a fast 14 feet per minute production speed. Its simple controls allow new or veteran users to create
professionally finished graphics with ease. Backed by the best warranty in the industry, you won't find any other laminator on the market that fits
the bill like the 65 EL.
"The addition of the SEAL 65 EL to our laminator portfolio has allowed us to expand on the success of the 54 EL," remarks Angela Mohni,
VP Marketing, Neschen Americas. "We are excited to be able to increase our product range to provide a finishing solution to customers who
are investing in 64" print technology."
The fact is, wider and larger is the future of the industry. And the 65 EL addresses this market need perfectly in an affordable, attractive and reliable
way. It's time to make that move. And the timing, as they say, couldn't be better.
With great anticipation and fanfare, Neschen Americas introduced the SEAL® 65 Pro MD at this year's SGIA Expo. The 65 Pro MD is the most
state-of-the-art, multi-functional laminator currently available on the market. This high production machine is specifically designed to meet the needs
of the most demanding print service providers. In a nutshell, the SEAL® 65 Pro MD is the ultimate laminator for finishing professionals.
Measuring 65" wide, the 65 Pro MD uses cutting-edge technology to provide SEAL® quality and performance at a competitive price. Its new design
includes two major technological breakthroughs in laminator performance - speed of thermal encapsulation and the Easy Operator Interface™ (EOI). A
key benefit to the 65 Pro MD is that it can run thermal encapsulation with 3mil film on top and bottom at more than 15 feet per minute, nearly three
times faster than most comparable laminators in the market today. This unmatched speed, along with temperature, cooling and nip height are all
controlled through the EOI, a touch screen control panel which is mounted on a swivel pendant that moves easily from the front to the back of the
machine. Additional features include swing out auto-grip shafts, a removable front/rear image roll trough and precision pneumatic rollers.
"The SEAL® 65 Pro MD amazed every SGIA expo attendee that stopped by our booth," shares Jim Fino, Product Manager - Finishing, Neschen
Americas. "The many features and benefits built into every inch of this machine, such as the Easy Operator Interface™ and quartz infrared heated
rollers, surpass any other machine on the market. The SEAL® 65 Pro MD marries consistent, high quality graphic output with continuous, high
volume production, matching the needs of today's market."
The introduction of a new laminator also brought the introduction of a new booth design. Two interactive towers highlighted a variety of Neschen
Americas media for expo attendees to experience. Both towers were outfitted with PrintLux™ CityLight Superior, a backlit film for aqueous and latex
printers. The booth also featured SolvoPrint™ NoLite 360, which is the perfect choice for hanging display systems. Print Shield® Floor Guard® was
laminated to Nolite 360 for extra rigidity and anti-glaring, representing the perfect combination of materials for a tradeshow panel. Pure Color Fresco
AdTex™, a lightweight polyester textile with a removable and re-positionable adhesive, was featured in one tower with plenty of opportunity to handle
the media and experience its key benefits of easy installation and removal of wall graphics.
The very popular Print Shield® Anti-Graffiti could also be found, which offers protection against a wide variety of chemicals and stains. Time was very
well spent by all SGIA attendees who tested all of these products and more.
"The launch of the SEAL® 65 Pro MD, which combines 100 years of knowledge and experience in engineering and design, has been a significant
achievement this year," claims Angela Mohni, Vice President of Marketing, Neschen Americas. "Another great achievement was our overall
presence at this year's show, which was wonderfully received. Everyone's feedback was extremely positive and it's satisfying to know that our
results are nothing short of success."
Neschen Americas' family of products underscores what customers have come to expect. As customers strive to do and achieve more, so will
Neschen Americas by regularly pushing boundaries and taking its' customers feedback to heart. The SEAL® 65 Pro MD is just the latest example
of Neschen Americas continuous innovation and commitment. As always, there's more to come.
Neschen Americas is pleased to announce the latest addition to the SEAL® pressure-sensitive laminating films family - Print Shield® Base Textured
Print Shield® Base Textured Matte is a cost effective, 3mil vinyl over-laminate specifically designed to offer outstanding protection against dirt,
moisture and abrasion. Its fine sand texture gives it a semi-matte finish that will reduce glare from direct lighting, making it an excellent choice for
brightly lit trade show graphics and roll up banner stand applications. Print Shield Base Textured Matte is flexible and works with a myriad of both
indoor and outdoor applications.
"SEAL® is excited to launch Print Shield® Base Textured Matte, which is another great example of our brand's innovation," shares Jim Fino, Product
Manager - Finishing, Neschen Americas. "We are consistently striving to deliver more benefits to our customers and Print Shield® Base Textured
Matte is another versatile product we are able to offer at a very attractive price point."
Currently available in the following sizes: 38" x 200', 51" x 200' and 54" x 200', Neschen Americas is showcasing this product so that customers can
experience it for themselves and understand how they can use it best. Print Shield Base Textured Matte pairs perfectly with Neschen SolvoPrint™ and
PrintLux™ Nolite165 6.5 mil 100% blockout polyester print media.
Sample rolls are available for customers to try the product before committing to a full size roll.
Neschen Americas extends SEAL®'s line of films by offering Print Shield® Base Textured Matte, a quality solution that effectively reduces glare from
either sunlight or overhead lighting and protects the graphic from every day handling.
Neschen Americas is thrilled for the 2012 ISA Sign Expo, which will be in Orlando, FL from March 22 – 24. A plethora of new products will be on
display to include the Neschen Americas Signage Application Kits, which were just released earlier this month. By combining Neschen brand media
with SEAL®’s finishing products, Neschen Americas has leveled the playing field making the creation of short run, customized signage profitable for
all. These kits are specifically designed for window, floor and anti-graffiti signage utilizing some of the company’s most popular products such as
gudy® window by SEAL®, Print Shield® Anti-Graffiti, Print Shield® Floor Guard and SolvoPrint™ MightyGrip Gray. The shorter roll lengths of these
products reduce overall cash outlay and inventory carrying cost of the materials. Expo attendees will be able to investigate these signage
application kits up close and personally while having a multitude of Neschen Americas experts available for questioning.
Also new for Neschen Americas are PrintLux™ Nolite 165, Nolite 370 and CityLight Superior for aqueous printers, all coming to booth #1626. At 8.5 mils
thick, CityLight Superior is a aqueous and latex printable backlit film with superior rigidity compared to thinner products currently available in the market.
This is a critical feature to avoid “sagging” when the material is displayed in a light box. The thickness of CityLight Superior also allows it to absorb the
heat used to dry latex inks producing vibrant colors. Other new products on display will be Pure Color™ Fresco AdTex™, a polyester self-adhesive textile
and SolvoPrint™ WallGrip, which is the go-to product for indoor wall graphics. Perfect for signage, retail displays, murals and trade show graphics,
SolvoPrint™ WallGrip’s specialty removable adhesive leaves no residue or wall damage.
On the finishing side, Neschen Americas is bringing the coveted SEAL® 54 EL laminator, which will be on display at booth #1522. Launched just one and
a half years ago, the industry is still marveling at the capabilities and features of the SEAL® 54 EL. For ISA expo attendees who have yet to see this high
quality, economy-priced laminator, the wait will soon be over. As a special offer, anyone who purchases a SEAL® 54 EL during the 2012 ISA Sign Expo
will receive two Neschen Americas Signage Application Kits for free.
With Neschen Americas’ key staff and training experts in attendance, on-the-booth training will be held during the expo to deliver the latest tips and tricks
that sign industry professionals can use to produce high quality graphics in less time and at a reduced cost. Neschen Americas is also participating in
ISA’s “Innovation Station,” which is new at this year’s expo, and sponsoring two education sessions featuring Mark Rugen, Training and Education
Center Manager for Neschen Americas. On Thursday, March 22, Rugen will present “Whippin’ the $#!% Out of Graffiti” showcasing the benefits and
features of Print Shield® Anti-Graffiti and on Friday, March 23 he will deliver “Removable Window Graphics: Stuck on Profit,” which is one of the most
popular advertising mediums being used by retailers today.
“Neschen Americas is particularly excited about this year’s ISA Sign Expo due to all of our new products,” shares Angela Mohni, Vice President of
Marketing, Neschen Americas. “Not only is innovation a theme at this year’s event, but it’s also one of our key drivers that consistently delivers value
to our customers each and every day.”
Neschen Americas Takes Its Laminating Boot Camp on the Road
–Neschen Americas is pleased to announce that its laminating expertise is being brought directly to customers. Previously, laminating boot camps were
limited to the Neschen Americas Training & Education Center in Elkridge, Maryland, but beginning this month that will change. Seven training seminars

Neschen Americas’ laminating boot camp is a two-day hands-on training seminar on its SEAL® and Neschen brand products. Students will be given
the opportunity to execute applications using SEAL laminators and consumables. Class sizes are limited to 12 students and the student to teacher ratio
of 4:1 allows for individual attention and ample time for questions and answers with Neschen Americas’ expert trainers and technicians. Speaking of
expert trainers, industry-renown Mark Rugen, Manager of the Neschen Americas Training & Education Center, will teach each and every laminating
boot camp ensuring quality and consistency.
“The best hands-on training for laminators and materials I have attended,” claims Rob Galloway of Charlotte, North Carolina, who made the trip to
Elkridge, Maryland last year.
A variety of SEAL laminators are used in the class, such as the 54 Base or 62 Base, the 62 Pro and the increasingly popular 54 EL, which was
launched in October 2010. Applications include, but are not limited to, single-sided cold lamination, roll-to-roll laminating, edge wrapping and
mounting. Products featured in the class include Print Shield® Base, Print Shield® Floor Guard, Print Shield® Anti-Graffiti and gudy® window
“We have done multiple laminating boot camps in Maryland and they have been extremely successful,” states Mark Rugen, Manager of the Neschen

demands. This decision is just another example of our commitment to training and education and how we bring that philosophy to the

SEAL Brand Launches New Print Shield Anti-Graffiti
SEAL® brand, the leading producer of pressure-sensitive laminating films, is proud to introduce Print Shield®
Anti-Graffiti. This product safeguards prints, which may become vulnerable to graffiti by making them washable
and resistant to a very large number of detergents and solvents. Print Shield Anti-Graffiti consists of a high-
performance, PCTFE film, which protects images printed on UV or solvent ink-jet printers from a wide variety of
chemicals, such as paints, permanent marker and acrylics. It also allows easy removal of most other stains and
chemicals that may find their way onto the graphic.
Key benefits of Print Shield Anti-Graffiti include maintaining a long-lasting professional look while being easy to
clean with common, economical cleaners. The PCTFE high-performance film only measures 1 mil and is
completely stain, flame and chemical resistant, as well as plasticizer and stabilizer free. This unique film offers the
highest moisture barrier of any clear, flexible film on the market, which means true protection against graffiti, unlike
anything else that is available in today’s digital print and finishing market place.
“The Print Shield Anti-Graffiti is the perfect weapon to combat vandalism concerns. Our unique high-performance
film offers true graffiti protection and reduces harm to the environment,” says Neschen Americas Senior Product
Manager Dave Conrad. “We want to offer solutions that not only enhance the visual impact of an image, but
extend the life and performance of graphics as well, and Print Shield Anti-Graffiti does exactly that.

printed output. Applications include, but are not limited to, rigid indoor and outdoor displays, outdoor signage,
wall murals and point-of-purchase/tradeshow displays. Designed to be used in conjunction with inks that have
long light fastness, it is an extremely durable film with an estimated outdoor life of more than seven years (with
non-immersed, vertical application.) Current size available is 54’ x 150’.

New Line of Neschen Brand and SEAL Brand Self-adhesive Vinyl
Neschen Americas’ SEAL and Neschen Brand Products are excited to announce the launch of the new
Neschen and SEAL brand self adhesive vinyl product lines. There are three performance tiers in each line
to fit virtually any application: Neschen SolvoPrint ProGrip, SuperGrip and MightyGrip and SEAL Digital Vinyl

outdoor durability of 4-5 years. They provide an excellent solution for general signage applications on vertical,
flat and slightly curved surfaces. These products are available in a gloss finish.

Neschen Launches New Earth-Friendly ProNature Program
Neschen brand proudly announces the launch of ProNature. This environmentally conscious program spotlights
the company’s long history of developing and offering display graphic options produced utilizing the most
environmentally friendly methods possible.
ProNature is based on Neschen’s long standing history of environmentally friendly practices. Long before the
advent of the "green" movement they employed common-sense business practices that were closely aligned
with the founders’ conservationist ideals - including energy efficiency, product recycling and utilization of
renewable resources whenever possible. These methods are the Neschen way, and are the basis of our
As a result, the bulk of Neschen innovation is dedicated to developing and marketing products that are made
and can be disposed of in eco friendly ways. These products must also meet the company’s rigorous standards
for quality and performance. A few examples are the SolvoTex Cotton Premium Light S and SolvoTex Cotton
Premium Heavy S print media, whose primary component is a 100% natural and renewable resource that is also
biodegradable. Neschen water based adhesives performance equals that of their solvent based counterparts -
including carrier-free gudy® eco, the 100% environmentally degradable and recyclable mounting adhesive.
"Neschen has always seen the benefits of being a conservationist organization and have always utilized those
ideals in our business and manufacturing processes," says Angela Mohni, VP of Marketing. "It is the responsible
thing to do and it simply makes good business sense. As we move into the future, the initiatives encompassed
by the ProNature program will continue to play a fundamental role in the decisions we make and in the products
that we manufacture and market."
Neschen Americas, the industry leader in inkjet printable textiles, announces the launch of their new and
improved dye sublimation textile media. All aspects of the Neschen® DirectTex™ and TransferTex™ lines have
been reviewed in order to achieve the best product versatility, bold color reproduction and sharp image detail
for applications ranging from exhibit panels and flags, to retail displays and more – all at updated competitive
price points. New products have also been added to round out the offering, including DirectTex Knit Banner
Light, DirectTex Poplin Superior, TransferTex Sutton Twill and TransferTex Kelly Linen.
Neschen DirectTex™ and TransferTex™ media address both direct print and transfer dye sublimation technologies.
DirectTex products feature special coatings that allow printing direct to the fabric before sublimation, eliminating
the need for transfer paper. DirectTex products can also be used with the traditional transfer method for maximum
versatility. Neschen TransferTex textiles are designed for use with traditional, transfer dye sublimation. This
process involves printing to transfer paper and then sublimating onto the textile with the use of a heat transfer press.
"We have undergone a detailed review of our DirectTex and TransferTex product lines," says Andreas
DeGroot, Senior Product Manager for Neschen inkjet media, "We added four new products, enhanced
product performance, and restructured price points to offer our customers new, competitively priced solutions
for a broad spectrum of dye sub applications."

SEAL Donates Films for Outdoor Photo Exhibition in Montreal, Canada
Neschen Americas and SEAL brand products is proud to announce their participation as a vendor/sponsor
for the Lachine Canal Outdoor Photo Exhibition in Montreal, Canada. The exhibition, which was created and
directed by Boreal Communications, is part of Montreal Green, a project that celebrates nature within the urban
landscape with the objective of raising awareness to protect natural spaces amidst the pressures of urban
The project started with two photographers traversing the island of Montreal to collect powerful images testifying
to the enormous natural beauty and bio-diversity of southern Quebec. Eighteen, 44 x 66 inch, large-format
images were produced from the photos (courtesy of Epson Canada, using an Epson Stylus Pro 9880 printer
and Premium Luster paper). The images were mounted to 3/4-inch MDF using SEAL® Print Mount® Ultra
and were over-laminated with SEAL® Print Shield® Standard UV Luster. Print Mount Ultra is a premium
pressure-sensitive adhesive that offers excellent lay-down performance, a smooth finish, and an aggressive
bond. It is an ideal choice for mounting prints to substrates such as MDF in an outdoor application. Print Shield
Standard UV pressure-sensitive laminating films improve the look and durability of images displayed in high-traffic
public venues. In addition to physical surface protection and a high-tack bond, the film offers protection against
UV light for graphics on display in direct sunlight. The Luster finish was chosen for its blend of wear-resistance,
color enhancement and glare control for easy viewing.
The mounting and laminating was done by Lamination Visuel Inc. using a wrap-around technique in which the
laminate is wrapped around the edges of the substrate to protect against water/moisture invasion. The finished
images were then mounted in kiosks along the north side of Lachine Canal at the Atwater Market Place.
