Many companies rely on large format marketing and merchandising tools to do just that. With large format signage you are only limited by your imagination.

Digital large format printing is used to produce everything from banners to trade show graphics; vehicle wraps to building wraps; H-stake yard signs to outdoor billboard signs.

Benefits of using Large Format Printing

The benefits of using large format printing in your marketing campaigns are many. First, large format printing can help you take advantage of existing client traffic patterns. With the ability to print on a variety of substrates large format printing is a great medium for creating engaging wall murals. A photo wall mural with captivating images and creative text can grab the attention of consumers and introduce them to your products and services.

And, due to the variety of printable substrates, you could augment your wall mural with images and text printed onto wood or glass panels then mounted to the wall. I’ve even heard of a company printing a photo of a pop singer or other pop culture icon onto an office door.

Besides the ability to print onto a variety of surfaces, digital large format printing allows you to print just one or a few copies of your marketing materials. This reminds me of the old Burma-Shave roadside sign campaigns. Not that I’m old enough to remember, but from 1925 to 1966 this company would use a series of six roadside signs to advertise the benefits of using their brand of brushless shaving cream. The signs were spaced out along the road or highway. Each sign contained part of a rhyme or verse. In that way, as a motorist would pass, they’d read each sign and by the final sign they’d have read the entire advertisement. It was very creative.

That’s the biggest advantage of large format printing. You’re only limited by your imagination. You really have an endless choice of printable substrates for indoor use, outdoor use and everything in between. Here are some of the large format printing materials available to you:

  • Wood
  • Glass
  • Vinyl
  • Foam Core
  • Gator Board
  • Wallpaper
  • Metal and Plastic Sheeting
  • Plastic and Paper Corrugate
  • Carpet
  • Wrapping Paper
