BONUS: How to Make Your Large Format Printing Stand Out What is wide format printing? Also known as large format printing or grand printing, wide format printing uses rolls of print instead of printing on individual sheets. They’re designed to support maximum print roll width; some machines can do wide scale prints up to widths of 61 inches! What are the benefits of wide format printing? Wide format printing is perfect for printing graphics and promotional materials. They can produce much wider images and bolder text than a standard printer, making them ideal for printing banners, posters, wallpaper, stickers, murals, logos, signs and any other materials with visual or graphic-heavy designs. Wide format printers use UV pigments. These inks are fade-resistant, making large format prints perfect for outdoor use and display in indoor areas with major exposure to sunlight. The printers use an advanced droplet technology, using a combination of precision ejection and microscopic ink droplets to produce high quality images with astonishing image clarity. Another advantage that wide format printers have over other printers is their ability to distinguish between text and images. The machines are sensitive to the differences between images and text, creating proper prints with no mix-ups. Never again would you have to worry about blocks of color drowning out your words, or having a few lines of copy mark the surface of a beautifully designed logo. Wide format printers can also be a cheaper alternative to screen-printing, and can often produce materials of comparable quality. The machines can also print at a much faster rate than other printers, printing at a speed that a multifunction device or desktop couldn’t hope to match. BONUS: Why Large Format Printing is the BOMB!
