What is Large Format Print?

Large format print is also commonly referred to as wide format print.  Put simply, it is printing onto large sized sheets, usually with a small order quantity (from 1+).

Large format print is so much more than just printing onto paper, as in lithographic print where large runs of paper based products are printed (such as posters).

Large format print gives us the capability to print onto a range of substrates such as PVC.  This in turn gives us the creativity to produce innovative, fully printed items that other machines are not built to do.  This allows us to have a far broader product range and enables customers to look at bespoke ideas to promote themselves.

We can produce large format print starting at as small as A2, which is ideal for smaller banners or signs with a low order quantity.  But, the bigger the better in some cases – contact us to discuss your bespoke ideas.
