Jessup Manufacturing Company Launches New Reverse Print Specialty Graphics Media at SGIA 2018


Matador™, a 40 mil Reverse Print Media Gives PSP New Options

Jessup Manufacturing Company announced the introduction of Matador™, a non-adhesive reverse print media at SGIA Expo 2018, October 18-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Matador™ reverse print media is a 40 mil material engineered to be printed on the underside to protect the printed surface from wear and tear. This reverse print media is ideal for retail counters and floors, transportation stations, museums, educational facilities, and recreational facilities, to name a few.

Matador™ is available in two different textures and an optional non-slip backer available in clear and white. Matador™ has passed ASTM D-2047 and offers slip resistance and durability for high traffic areas. The material is easy to install, easy to remove and gives brands great visibility for short-term promotions.

“We are excited to show SGIA attendees our new Matador™ reverse print graphics media. Matador™ moves the printing industry forward by providing a thinner gauge, more sustainable product than competitive offerings,” said Rob Jessup, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jessup Manufacturing Company. “Our customers are always looking for innovative materials that can help them stay competitive and Jessup continuously develops solutions that meet their needs. Matador™ helps our customers achieve their performance goals.”

This clear, vinyl material is ideal for large format printing equipment that uses latex and UV inks. Matador’s printability, attractiveness, versatility and sustainability make it one of the most advanced non-adhesive vinyl systems in the industry.
