What is large format printing?

It is something that we very likely pass every day when we drive to work, go shopping or take a trip to the cinema. Whether you work near an industrial estate or in the centre of a bustling city, you are bound to be faced with numerous large format printing products battling it out for your attention.

Simply put, large format printing is the process of printing large graphics and designs (that typically are too wide to be printed on most commercial print presses) on rolls of paper or other materials.

With the continued rise of digital technology and the development of print, high-quality large format printing is becoming more accessible than ever to businesses big and small.

Many types of marketing material fall under the ‘large format’ umbrella, including:

  • Posters
  • Vinyl, mesh, roller and pull up banners
  • Canvas prints
  • Display systems
  • Window graphics
  • Printed wallpaper

Depending on the premises and purpose of the print, large format can be used for both indoor and outdoor advertising. Large format offers the flexibility to be printed on a variety of materials such as vinyl, metal and glass, with the convenience and quick drying time of eco-solvent inks.
