PRINTING ON LARGE FORMAT RIGID SUPPORTS
Various rigid materials are often used for large format printing, as each offers different advantages, depending on your project’s needs and budget. Metal, plastic, and wood all have their own attributes that will help you choose which type of sign will work best. Whether it will be placed inside our out and if it needs to be lightweight or not are all things to consider when choosing the right rigid material. Colour quality and vibrance also differs depending on the type of sign used.
Depending on the need for water or impact-resistance, the desired level of quality or whether the sign will be temporary or permanent, many options are possible. For example, those looking for an affordable and light solution will turn toward Coroplast and Foamcore. Those needing a sign that’s more resistant to water and weather conditions will choose Dibond aluminun for its rustproof advantage.
Our experts in large format printing are trained to recommend the best rigid material based on each project’s needs. They can also advise you on different possible finishes for the sign: cutout, varnished, laminated and grooved.
