Mactac Imagin Digital Media is Wider and Longer

Self-adhesive PVC offered in 64- and 79-in. widths

Big Picture

MACtac is making its products bigger"?literally. Self-adhesive, calendered PVC vinyl films, IMAGin JT5828 and JT5829, will now be offered in 64- and 79-in. widths (originally 60 and 54 in.), and users can now order the traditional 328-ft rolls or the longer 656-ft rolls.

The new 64-in. rolls allow shops to print two 30-in. standard King and Queen bus posters side-by-side; the 79-in. roll is the standard size for Viacom-approved bus shelter posters. The larger roll widths help customers reduce print time and waste; the larger roll lengths increase efficiency by decreasing roll change-outs.

IMAGin JT5828 and JT5829, vinyl films with a permanent or removable opaque acrylic adhesive, are designed for short-term indoor and outdoor displays (offering 2-year durability), and can conform to flat or slightly curved surfaces. Both are 3.7-mil white vinyls; JT5828 has a matte finish and JT5829 has a gloss finish.

In addition, MACtac has developed a new brochure/chart to help customers choose the right media for their jobs. The six-page brochure, available in English and Spanish, provides detailed information on MACtac product lines: IMAGin, MACmark, Permacolor, and MACscreen. The chart matches media with applications.(MACTAC: www.mactac.com)
