What is wide format printing?

Wide-format printers are printing machines that generally use a print roll width between 18 inches and 100 inches. Wide-format printers are ideal for creating print products such as banners, posters, and trade show graphics. Rolls of a substrate are usually used with wide format printers, allowing larger products to be created, as opposed to other printers that may only use singular sheets of a substrate. The results are large and quality print products that you can use in a variety of ways.

What technology does wide format printing use?

Wide-format printers usually use digital printing technology to create products. This is because longer sheets of a substrate can be used, and it’s often a more economical choice for products that have smaller runs. For example, you may likely only need a limited number of banners printed in a wide format. It’s easier and more affordable to print these digitally than to prepare a plate for litho printing. Ultimately, wide format printing can be done at a low cost without surrendering quality, giving you large and luxury print products.

What are the benefits of wide-format printing?

Large, quality, and affordable, wide format printing has many benefits beyond the press. Thanks to the technology used, wide format prints can be created quickly to your specifications. Even more, having a large print means that you can stand out from the crowd. Wide-format printing creates an air of establishment, showing that your business or product is standing the test of time.

However, our expert team of designers and printers take pleasure in restoring your moments captured like they were yesterday.

When deciding which option is best, consider the number you need produced in the specified time. If you want a smaller amount printed quickly, digital printing is the best option; and if you need to produce a large quantity of print, then litho printing is the better option.
