Large Format Printing

What can you print?

At Purely Digital, we can use out large format printer to print:

We can also print floor art, office prints and whatever you can think of that requires a large format printer.

Can you print in full colour?

We have an incredible colour gamut and can print in up to 11 colours.

Does large format printing take longer than regular digital printing?

Yes, large format printing does take longer simply because you are printing a bigger item. Remember that print runs on large format tend to be shorter (you will normally only want a few banners or displays) so this makes up for the longer printing time.

Can you do the same finishes on large prints?

If required, this can be done, though it will be expensive. It’s not considered cost effective to do a lot of finishing on one copy.

We can laminate items and mount prints on to boards, however.

What kind of materials can you print on?

We can print on lots of different materials including PVC, vinyl, acrylic, fabric and more. We have printed flags and window stickers alongside more conventional items like posters and banners.

We would not want to print on uncoated, rough textured paper like GF Smith’s Colorplan range, because it isn’t suited to taking ink and will adversely affect your design.

Can you make my files bigger or do I need to do something to them?

We can enlarge files for you, though the quality of the enlarged image will depend on the quality of file sent over. We recommend you speak to us before sending the file over and we can talk about options. Remember that sacrificing a bit of resolution in large format printing often doesn’t matter too much, as the majority of large prints are viewed from a distance, so viewers won’t be able to detect a lower resolution.

What resolution do I need for large format printing?

Somewhere between 72 and 150 dpi. Low resolution doesn’t matter too much since large format prints are viewed at a distance.

Large Format Printing

If you need something printed that is larger than our standard SRA3 print — like a banner stand, pop-up display or poster — then we can cater for you with our large format printer. We’ve recently had our large format printer recalibrated, with new inks and new stocks, and had a RIP (Raster Image Processor) installed to make our service even better.

We have an amazing range of vibrant colours to make sure that your prints are always spectacular. We are able to print posters and banners on all sorts of large format papers, including self-adhesives, which can then be mounted on to display boards!

Whether it’s for an exhibition or presentation, signage, or technical drawings, our team will make sure that your print is of the highest quality and is fit for purpose, wherever you choose to display it.
Just let us know your requirements, and we will be happy to advise you on the most suitable product, at the most competitive price!
