Large Format Printing – Countless Possibilities

Sponsored Content provided by Drew Smith - Director of Communications, Copiers Plus

Many offices are accustomed to having copiers, printers and scanners as tools to stay productive and streamline both hardcopy and digital processes. Though, only a few offices take advantage of large format printing through wide format printers. Many times, businesses will rely on print shops to serve their oversized print needs even though the cost comes at a premium and is subject to the timetable of the printer. In this article, we will take a look at some of the possibilities your organization could bring in house through a wide format printer.
 
Generate Brainstorming & Collaboration
 
Are there ever times when you are in a brainstorming meeting and wish you could just draw your idea out or not have to wait for the note taker to type everything? Sometimes the most organic and stimulating meetings are when everyone is able to write their ideas out. Having the ability to print diagrams, charts or calendars could assist in this process by giving structure to your conversations. Another good fit would be analyzing large graphics, models or blueprints. It is one thing to see them on a small piece of paper or screen but imagine 36 inches of details at your team’s fingertips.
 
Scanning
 
A key feature of some wide format printers is the ability to scan documents. Scanning can be invaluable for helping archive meeting notes or on-site changes/notes to a blueprint. The devices are even adapted to a variety of file types that include: DWF, DWG, CAD, PDF, TIFF and more. Some models even feature a USB port to make printing and scanning possible without a network connection.
 
Advertising
 
Whether you have a storefront business or just a need to share your products, large format printing can help. No longer will you have to wait to change your signs, you can do them on the fly. Maybe you are a brewery or restaurant and could have signage advertising your beer selections, food truck schedules, or live music schedules. While indoor signage is most popular, you can also create temporary outdoor signage via the specialized ink available in certain models.
 
Products & Protocols
 
If you create products, then you most likely provide instructions or additional information in the packaging. Large format printing is perfect for creating the space you need to fully explain complex steps in a layout that can be folded and lightweight. You can also create stunning posters that display your products in a custom way in your showroom or around town. Additionally, in this time of dealing with COVID-19, there are plenty of protocols companies must take to operate safely. You can use signage and other large format outputs to more effectively communicate these policies and procedures to your employees and visitors.
