Choosing the Best Substrate for Your Project

When it comes to large format printing, choosing the right materials is crucial for achieving the desired impact. Our project managers can help you choose the best substrate for your project while keeping you on budget and delivering quality prints and durable materials. The choice of materials depends on various factors such as the intended use of the printed piece, the environment it will be displayed in, and the desired lifespan of the print.
For outdoor applications, materials such as vinyl and plastic corrugate are commonly used due to their durability and resistance to weather conditions.

For indoor applications, materials like paper board and corrugate are cost-effective and can be easily replaced, light for shipping, and easy to assemble making them suitable for grocery or big box retailers for short-term promotions and events.

Design tips for effective printing

  1. Keep it simple: Large format prints should have a clear and concise message. Avoid cluttering the design with excessive text or graphics that may overwhelm the viewer.
  2. Use high-resolution images: To ensure sharp and clear prints, use high-resolution images that are suitable for large-scale printing. Low-resolution images can appear blurry and detract from the overall impact of the print.
  3. Consider the viewing distance: Take into account the distance at which your print will be viewed. If it will be viewed from a distance, ensure the text and graphics are large enough to be easily readable.
  4. Choose appropriate colors: Colors play a vital role in capturing attention and conveying emotions. Use colors that align with your brand identity and evoke the desired response from your target audience.
  5. Test the design: Before finalizing your design, print a small-scale version to assess how it will appear when enlarged. This will help you identify any potential issues and make necessary adjustments.

Cost Considerations for Your Print Project

Plan ahead: Give yourself ample time to plan and execute your large format printing project. Rush orders often come with additional fees, so planning ahead can help you avoid unnecessary expenses.
Print in bulk: If you have multiple prints or anticipate future printing needs, consider printing in bulk to take advantage of volume discounts.
Explore different materials: Depending on your specific requirements, there may be cost-effective alternatives to premium materials that still achieve the desired impact.

Large format printing is a powerful marketing tool that has the ability to transform your business and captivate your target audience. With its ability to display vibrant colors, sharp images, and bold graphics, large format printing can elevate your brand and leave a lasting impression.
