Surface Reproductions, LLC Surreal sample product

May 7, 2007

Surface Reproductions, LLC has introduced a patent-pending product named Surreal™, an inexpensive lightweight dimensional printed sample product designed to show different edge profiles of stone products in one sample piece. The device is comprised of a 100% recyclable lightweight, yet sturdy, plastic weighing less than one ounce (vs. over 4 pounds for a similarly-sized stone sample), and can represent a stone’s surface texture and color in an almost exact manner, according to the company. Edge profiles are identified with recessed lettering in the product, which allows for unobstructed viewing of the color and sample piece.

The product is stocked in a rectangular shape (4 x 6 inches) and also available in custom shapes (6-inch-diameter hexagon) and has the option of allowing an actual product chip to be inserted in the center of the device.
