What exactly is large format printing? Large format printing includes anything that's oversized for our general digital and commercial prints. Typically, these are designed to capture your attention as a visible, vivid marketing tactic. Often, companies will use this method of printing to promote a special project for a temporary period of time. It is also commonly used as permanent advertising on buildings. Colortech uses this on its own front doors!
Now, let's talk about formatting. Most of our jobs are measured in inches. Despite this, due to their size, we measure large format jobs with feet. A lot of people connect the term "large format" with signage, corporate and trade show event materials, or banners. However, there's so much more that can be printed under this department of our print house. Combined with scale and quicker turnaround, large format printing is very cost-effective. Below, view a few highlighted items that we print on a regular basis.

Because these jobs are so large, we suggest you utilize our design staff or come prepared with print-ready high-res artwork at 300dpi or larger at your print size. This will ensure you get the best piece possible for your time and budget. Furthermore, learn more about our creative services and what our staff can provide for you on our creative services page.
