The advantages of large format printing.

Large format print advertising is advantageous for its high image quality, the variety of material that can be created, and its ability to be used both indoors and outdoors. Large format advertising materials enhance the impact of a communication strategy or the visual appeal of a booth.

High-quality image printing

Modern large format printers can print images at a resolution of up to 3000 dpi. The image quality is pristine when compared to digital photo printing. Note that this image quality applies mostly to indoor printing.

Advertising campaign materials must combine accessibility, visibility and quality. Large format digital printing is the most practical solution in this regard. An advertising tarp in this format stands out for its excellent resolution. Images can be printed at a maximum size of 1200 dots per inch (DPI). Achieving high-quality rendering is therefore possible with large format printing.

Large format printing can be done on a wide variety of materials. This includes ordinary banner paper, polyvinyl chloride, synthetic fabric, special mesh, etc. This diversity of materials allows the creation of several types of marketing materials for customers.

The possibility of printing on an advertising tarpaulin

There are additional factors to take into account when printing outdoor advertising materials. These considerations relate to the effects of the external environment on the integrity of advertising materials. Rain, humidity, heat and UV rays are some of the factors to consider.

Conventional communication media such as screen printing or stickers cannot withstand the outdoors. Tarpaulin is more effective for the application of large format printing for outdoor use. Advertising tarpaulins boast increased durability in addition to being more resistant to external hazards.

Advertising tarpaulins have all the same advantages associated with large format printing for indoor advertising. It ensures maximum visibility for your business at various events.
