Large-format printing

Due to the many possibilities of size, large format projects are often some of the best ways to promote services and products to potential customers at your storefront or out at events. Festivals, trade shows, and other large spaces are perfect opportunities to display eye-catching large advertisements.

You might even consider large format printing as a way to boost your own branding both in your neighborhood and inside the very spaces of your company. You could offer sponsored building wraps or sports banners to local charities or schools, or even have special customer wallpaper printed that can feature anything you like for inside the halls of your company’s offices. 

There is almost no end to the kind of projects you can undertake with large format printing. Price will be affected by your chosen medium (what you actually print on) and the final size you want to go with. Here is a small list of projects you could take on with large format printing. It’s not exhaustive by any means, as you might be able to think of other different ways to present your marketing:

  • Outdoor signage
  • Point-of-purchase displays
  • Window Clings
  • Blueprints
  • Large maps or charts
  • Trade show wall panels
  • Business presentations
  • Posters
  • Color comps
  • Vinyl banners
  • Backlit Displays
  • Courtroom exhibits
vinyl wall murals
St. Pete Innovation District retractable banners

What is Included in Large Format Printing?

One of the most exciting advantages of large format printing is the wide array of various media that can be used. Media are the types of material that you can choose to print on. With SpeedPro, your many choices allow you to tailor the appearance, texture, and visual appeal of your project to the location and expected audience and help create truly stand-out marketing.  

SpeedPro media include:

  • Calendered Vinyl
  • Cast Vinyl
  • Translucent (for backlit signage)
  • Reflective (for nighttime viewing and safety)
  • Mirror Finish (for a metallic look)
  • Etched Frosted
  • Banner
  • Specialty Media
  • Photo Paper
  • Artist Canvas
  • Perforated Window Film
  • Static Cling
  • Street & Wall Graphics

Large format printers exist in a few differing versions, with each type offering advantages in certain uses: 

Aqueous printers: Using a water-based ink, these printers make high-resolution graphics and operate quickly. While being less expensive machinery than the other printer types, the media that they print on requires an additional coating for the ink to adhere. 

Solvent printers: Using a more durable solvent-based ink, these produce projects that are better for outdoor use. This ink is also more naturally adherent to surfaces and can be applied more readily to various media.

UV printers: With resin and latex-based inks, these printers can be utilized with the widest range of media. The inks used here are equally as durable as solvent inks if not more so.

At SpeedPro, we use UV-curable and eco-solvent inks to print your projects, allowing us to craft the most durable prints possible across the widest variety of media for your large format printing needs.

In addition to the medium and ink used for your large format printing project, you are also able to apply lamination to further protect your graphics and choose various substrate materials to enhance your project’s structure depending on the intended use.
