Frequently asked questions about wide format printers
What is a wide format or large format printer?
Wide-format printers are large format printers that are able to print on large paper or materials. Wide or large format printers typically use inkjet technology to output a variety of printing styles and finishes on different types of media including premium glossy-coated paper for signs and posters. They are commonly used to print posters, banners, vehicle graphics, construction plans, architectural drawings, wallpaper and other large format requirements.
What size prints can you produce using a wide format printer?
Usually, wide format printers can print onto a range of media ranging from 24” (102cm), up to 60” (153cm) and sometimes even larger for specialised wide-format printing applications.
What types of media can a wide format printer print on?
Wide or large format printers can print on a collection of materials, from paper, plastic, vinyl and acrylic to canvas board, textiles, metals and more.
What is the difference between a plotter and a large format printer?
A plotter is a device that receives commands from a computer and then draws its picture on the page. Plotters are functionally a mechanical drawing machine that holds a fine-point marker in a clamp and draws on your media the same way you would - it’s just computer-controlled, so it can draw straight lines, circles, and strange curves, all perfectly accurate every time, with consistent line weight.
Plotters rely on vector graphics - vectors create images from point-to-point nodes connected by mathematically determined lines and curves.
A large format printer is a device that prints texts and images on media and outputs raster images, also known as bitmaps or pixels.
A bitmap file displays small dots in a pattern to create an overall composition.
Large format printing sometimes referred to as wide format printing, is a type of digital printing. Similar to an inkjet printer yet on a much bigger scale, it sprays ink onto the chosen materials to quickly produce quality prints with impeccable detail and accuracy.
