LexTra 3D/4D

Dyed nylon fibers that are applied quickly, reproducing brilliant colors and exquisite detail in a durable, soft textured surface.

LexTra differentiates your product with a unique look and feel. It’s best used when embroidery can’t display small intricate graphics/type or when large complex graphics have high stitch counts that take time and are costly. By employing 3D and 4D method (explained below), you increase dimensionality and add unlimited colors.

There are 3 different versions of LexTra® dimensional graphics:

  1. LexTra | Dimensional graphics which reproduce fine design details with a soft all-flock texture that is pleasing to the touch
  2. LexTra 3D | LexTra combined with a single-color, high-luster woven textile in “windows” for contrast and greater dimensional impact
  3. LexTra 4D | Takes flock graphics a step further by combining LexTra with a digitally printed image on textile inserts
