If you use wide format inkjet paper for architecture, engineering and construction documents, maps, and technical drawings, you can find a huge selection of coated and uncoated bonds, Mylar, and vellums at Freedom Paper. But many of our customers save money by printing simple signs, banners, photographs, and trade-show graphics on the same wide-format inkjet printer they use to print their everyday documents.
So, Freedom Paper can deliver much more than wide format inkjet paper. We have gradually expanded the Freedom Paper product line to include high-quality, value-priced display films, banner vinyls, photo papers, and fabrics that can be printed on wide-format inkjet printers that use aqueous dye and pigment inks.
This summer, we added 17 new Freedom Paper-brand products. All these products have been tested to work with the newest models of wide-format inkjet printers, as well as many of the older Canon imagePROGRAF and HP Designjet CAD/technical printers that are still in use. Here’s a quick overview of the newest additions to the Freedom Paper family of products:
Sign and Banner Materials
Our growing selection of sign and banner media now includes innovative materials that can be used to make graphics for a wide range of indoor and outdoor display conditions.
For example, polypropylene films are a popular alternative to heavyweight paper for printing durable indoor posters because polypropylene doesn’t tear or crease. The smooth, white surface of polypropylene film also does a good job with photo reproduction. Some polypropylene films are designed for banner-stand graphics that are frequently rolled and unrolled. The self-adhesive film has a peel-and-stick adhesive that enables you to post graphics on posterboards or other sign blanks that feed through your printer.
Freedom Paper recently added these 4 polypropylene materials:
- Production Glossy Indoor Polypro (8 mil)
- Stay-Flat Polypro Banner (8 mil)
- Self-Adhesive Matte Polypropylene Film (8 mil)
- Instant-Dry Block-Out Polypro Banner Film (8 mil)
We also offer more pliable banner materials that can be used for fence wraps, decals, and more durable outdoor banners. Here are our four newest banner vinyls:
- Premium Matte Adhesive Backed Vinyl (6 mil)
- Low Tack Block-Out Matte Vinyl (6 mil)
- Polyester Matte Banner (22 mil)
- High Density Scrim Vinyl Banner (15 mil)
The Premium Matte Adhesive-Backed Vinyl has an strong, permanent adhesive for mounting graphics to sign materials. The Low Tack Block-Out Matte Vinyl has a low-tack removable adhesive that is ideal for making signs that will be mounted on windows, glass doors, display cases, and some types of walls.
