If you have something big to say, large format print pieces can be highly advantageous because they offer:

  • A vast print area – With abundantly more print area to create and display your company’s messaging and graphics, large format printing lends unprecedented design flexibility for you to make an unforgettable impression.
  • Unique printing substrates – With a large format printing project, you can kick your print communications efforts up a notch by considering a design on multiple substrates, including vinyl, fabrics, paper, glass, wood, metal, or plastic.
  • Durability – You don’t have to worry about a large format printing project that’s so fragile that it won’t stand the test of time. UV-cured inks and durable materials lead to a long-lasting piece that can often withstand harsh interior and exterior conditions, such as lighting, rain, excessive heat, and sun damage.
  • An attention-grabbing presence – The sheer size of a large format print piece is bound to capture your audience’s attention and help your company stand out from the competitors in your space. Pair it with an eye-catching design and message, and you’ve just made an unstoppable branding play.
  • Custom sizes and shapes – Another advantage of large format printing service is the ability to customize your print’s size and shape, providing endless visual possibilities for spreading your message.
  • Consistency – Our experienced large format printing press operators meticulously oversee our high-tech equipment to produce consistently high-quality large format prints every time.

The difference between wide format and large format printing services

While wide format and large format are print terms that are often used interchangeably, they’re not exactly the same. The distinction is that wide format printing is one of several types of large format printing projects. If you require a wide format printing, the design will feature wider-than-average print dimensions that require a large format printer. However, not all large format prints are wide format. If you’re unsure whether your large format print project is wide format, reach out to our sales and design team to find out.
