What To Know About Large-Format Printing

Large-format printing is a useful technique in the reproduction industry. Only this type of printing can handle large-scale images, signage, and more that many artists and businesses require daily. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about large-format printing.

What Is Large Format Printing?

Large-format printing handles materials with dimensions that are too large for standard commercial equipment. If you’re looking for extra-large reproductions that are bigger than most commercial materials, you’ll need large-format printing. Any prints larger than 36 inches in height or width are considered large format. If you plan to order large-scale posters, canvases, or anything else, you’ll need a machine that is compatible with this style of printing.

Large Format Printing Applications

You might be wondering what types of businesses require such large canvases and prints for their work. Some common examples of large-format printing applications include signage for trade show booths, retail stores, point-of-purchase displays, and more. Architectural design sheets can also span larger dimensions, which require larger equipment. Art shows and galleries also utilize large-scale reproductions and canvases to easily display artwork and photographs in front of an audience. Large-format printing helps bring out all the details in a piece of art and helps signage stick out in a crowd.

Tips for Large Format Printing

There are a few things to keep in mind when considering this type of print work. As with any other type of printing, you want to select a high-resolution file to keep the quality crisp and clear when you enlarge it. When printing promotional signage, choose a simple and easy-to-read font that your customers will see from a distance. Finally, choose the color space that is recommended by your printer. Depending on the type of printing, this might be RGB or CMYK.
