GPA, a market leader in substrate solutions for digital, wide-format and offset printing, has announced the latest addition to its wide-format offerings – GPA Metalized Styrene. The new substrates make it easy to produce stunning signage and high-end, point-of-purchase displays with added impact that demands attention, said GPA. GPA Metalized Styrene is ideal for creating retail displays, store fixtures, hanging signs, storefront window displays, and tradeshow graphics with maximum impact. “The metallic finish of these sheets infuses each project with a distinct mood and character, from antique to sleek,” the company added. “The versatility of GPA Metalized Styrene makes it the ideal solution for use in boutiques, high-end jewelry stores, beauty and cosmetics displays, wine and spirits marketing, and in other luxury markets.

Created with a thin, metalized polyester layer that’s heat-welded to a styrene base, its construction results in an ultra-smooth smooth sheet that’s lightweight, durable, and can be rolled without separating. The sheets are available in five colours and finishes in 48.25” x 96.26” sheets – Brushed Copper, Brushed Silver, Mirror Silver, Brushed Gold, and Mirror Gold. Printable with UV curable wide-format presses, they can be easily cut and transformed into “a limitless range of custom designs.”
