The Diverse Media Available for Wide Format Printing

Despite the trend toward smart screens, large-format liquid-crystal displays and other digital media, the wide-format printing business is still booming – particularly for shops that get creative with new and improved materials. Given the right equipment and a keen eye for design, just about any surface can become prime real estate for vibrant, well-printed ads and displays. Here are just a few of the diverse media available to wide format printers today.

Banners: The basic banner shape is perfect for a variety of venues, including product displays, trade show exhibitions and billboards. For customers who want even larger and more eye-catching ads, banners can also be applied to scaffolds, privacy screens and even the sides of buildings. Recent developments in banner materials include:

  • Matte finishes that prevent reflection and glare keep consumers' eyes on your displays in bright conditions and help you outperform washed-out digital displays
  • Mesh backings to protect surfaces and ink from erosion maintain images in even the strongest winds and storms
  • Gloss finishes for more vibrant colors
