This week it’s all about W is for Wide Format

Our Inks & Media Manager, Glen talks all things Wide Format!

What is Wide Format Printing?

Wide format print is all around us and sometimes without realising it we will all come into contact with something that is produced via a wide format printer on a daily basis. This could be the uniform we wear to work, which could have our company logos heat pressed on to them or the taxi, bus or train we get to work with colourful advertising wrapped around them. Outdoor signage and posters, retail window graphics and exhibition displays are all produced using wide format printing equipment.

At Signmaster we work with some of the top manufacturers in the industry which help create all of the wonderful wide format products we see around us. These could range from plotters which start at 500mm wide up to 1600mm, a print and cut machine at 500mm up to 1600mm or UV printing technology.
