Gone are the days when wide format printers were regulated to creating only black-and-white signs on coated white paper. Today, with the wide variety of applications available, you can print everything from vehicle wraps to maps. It’s important to not only choose the right machine, but choose the right media to go along with it in order to get the most out of your printer.
Here’s how to understand your media option and choose your solutions. It’s all about asking the right questions to get the right answers.
1. How Will You Use Your Wide Format Printer?
Many companies use wide format printers for eye-catching point of sale banners or trade show signs. Universities and healthcare institutions often use wide format printers to create posters, signage, and student projects. Other companies use wide format to create blueprints, presentations, maps, vehicle wraps, and more. The sky is the limit, so it’s important to know your options before you decide on a printer and the applications you’ll purchase.
2. What’s In Your Budget?
Luckily, wide format printers have gotten more technologically advanced while becoming more affordable for the average company. They also offer the cost-savings of minimizing your need to outsource print jobs, a serious cost reduction in the long run. Be sure to work with a trusted local dealer to work out what machines are in your budget and how to get the most out of your printer.
3. What Options Are Compatible With Your Printer?
Once you’ve narrowed down your printer choices, make sure you’re taking into consideration what applications are compatible with every machine. Think with an eye toward your company’s future: you may not need certain capabilities now, but they could help your business expand.
