Wide Format Printing

Roll to Roll

A roll printer is the most common printer found in sign and graphics shops around the country. These printers print on digital media that comes on a roll. The roll is then trimmed, or adhered to a rigid substrate. Although they do not print on rigid substrates, they can print on a plethora of digital media.

Advantages of a Roll Printer:

  • Material Versatility: Roll printers can print on almost any media that comes on a roll. These materials include all types of Vinyl, Banner Material, Fabrics, Canvas… the list goes on!
  • Job Versatility: Because of the material versatility, a roll printer can service almost any print project that comes through a sign shop.

Flatbed

Flat Bed printing, often called Direct-to-Board printing, allows the user to feed substrates through the mouth of the printer, and the printer will print ink directly on the loaded substrate.

Advantages of a Flatbed Printer:

  • Speed: flatbed printers add an element of speed that most roll printers can’t achieve. Many flatbed printers have variable speeds that allow sign companies to adjust the speed of the print to match the need of the job. We sell flatbed printers that can print up to 1,248.6 square feet an hour! To put that in perspective, that would mean that a sign shop can print about twenty-five 5ft x 10ft full-color substrates in just one hour.
  • Efficiency: flatbed printers not only allow a company to produce a job with more speed but also allows for improved efficiencies. Unless there is trimming to be done, a flatbed printer allows shops to go from raw substrate to finished product. This cuts out the additional prep work that comes with other forms of printing and allows a single employee to complete the same amount of work that would normally take multiple employees to complete.
