Large Format Printing refers to print materials that are too large to be printed on the most readily available sizes of commercial printing presses. Sometimes called wide-format printing or grand-format printing, large format printing requires the use of specialty production equipment that can accommodate bigger-than-normal print dimensions.
In the print industry, “large format” is actually a relative term because maximum print sizes vary from printer to printer. But generally speaking, large format refers to the following categories of print materials:
- Window and Wall Posters
- Large Building Signage
- Print for Vehicle Wraps
- Event Announcements
- Store Displays
- Promotional Signage
- Important Notices for Employees, Students or other groups
- Horizontal or Vertical Banners
As you can see, large format printing has many uses. It can be used to get attention from afar, to provide quick reference, or to provide a large visual for use in a classroom or other instructional setting. Also, most businesses use large format print materials for promotional purposes.
Large format printing is most commonly designed as a flat wall-hanging, but it can also be made to fold or in some cases made to be free-standing. Whatever your need for large format printing, get in touch with Vinyl Media.
