October 10, 2017 — Lyndhurst, NJ — Hop Industries, manufacturer of the durable Hop-Syn synthetic paper, today announces that its synthetic paper will be printed as point-of-purchase (P-O-P) displays live at SGIA Expo, October 10-12, in New Orleans. Bold, vibrant colors is the theme of the live P-O-P demonstrations at swissQprint’s booth #1253, and Expo attendees will learn how to achieve high-quality results with its Nyala LED printer and Hop-Syn XT synthetic paper.
Also at SGIA Expo, EFI booth #1501 will be creating backlit signage using the EFI VUTEk LX3 Pro and Hop-Syn BL synthetic paper. Samples from the swissQprint and EFI print demonstrations will be available at Hop Industries’ booth #4017.
“Bold colors show brilliantly on Hop-Syn, and we are excited to have SGIA Expo attendees experience it first hand at swissQprint’s and EFI’s booths,” comments Jack Smith, Senior Vice President, Hop Industries. “With a durable substrate like Hop-Syn, the opportunities are endless.”
The durable Hop-Syn synthetic papers are 100% recyclable and environmentally-friendly. Hop-Syn XT is extra tear resistant, ideal for P-O-P displays, signs, banners, hang tags, book covers, and more. The synthetic paper’s high dyne level and smooth matte finish delivers the printing performance of fine offset paper, yet its weather resistant properties meet demanding environmental conditions. Hop-Syn BL is used for backlit P-O-P signs, transit and airport displays, bus shelters, fine art, and more. Hop-Syn XT and BL synthetic papers can be printed by flexography, offset, screen, thermal transfer and inkjet.
