What can Large Format printers print?
Large-format printing is part of almost everyone's daily life - even if we don't realize it. As we walk around our cities, towns and even villages, we see examples of large format printing everywhere: billboards, advertisements on taxis and buses, graphics on the walls of construction sites. But what exactly is wide format printing? How does it work, what is involved in the process and why is it important for advertisers, marketers and brands? In this article, we thought we could shed some light on the basics of our industry and answer some simple questions you may have:

What is large format printing?

Wide format printing refers to any item printed on a large sheet of paper or other material. These projects are often too large to be printed on standard commercial presses. Instead, they require specialized equipment to give you a larger print area. The main features of a wide format printer are that the print head and the high-capacity ink cartridge are independently separated, and that it supports single sheet feeding and roll feeding.

What is large format printing used for?

1. Outdoor: In addition to banners, wallpaper and vehicle graphics, wide format printers can produce backgrounds for posters, signage, tradeshow graphics, electronic schematics, architectural drawings, construction drawings, theatrical and media sets, and any other large format artwork.

They can be used on cartons, glass bottles, bottle racks, clips, wine and spirits, shrink wrap, loyalty cards, health and beauty product packaging, and stickers.
