Do you need to have something large printed? At some point, all businesses have a need for large format printing services. These prints can be anywhere from poster size to larger. How do you get the best results from large format printing services?
Here are six tips to help you get the most out of your next large printing order.
Tip 1: Draft Thoroughly
Spending a lot of time drafting your large format print can help to save a lot of time when it comes to printing. If you have to spend time going back and forth finalizing designs, it can delay your project.
Tip 2: Do Not Scale Up Elements
Do not scale up elements of your print job. The more you scale up different items, the more pixelated/blurry they will become. Try to use resources dedicated to large format printing.
Tip 3: Run A “Proof” Print
Proofs are a sample print, a one off, that allows you to verify everything is right before you go into mass production. For large format printing, this might take the form of a smaller print just so you can verify everything prints correctly, including colors.
Tip 4: Ensure Image Isn’t Obstructed
Either with your proof or using your program, you will need to ensure that your image prints properly. Grommet holes and attachments to specialized printing will cover up your images or ruin text. If you are framing your wide format print, make sure that you have plenty of room around the edges for the frame.
Tip 5: Read The Company’s Website
Most large format printing service websites will provide you with tips and instructions that will help your print to look perfect on their printers. Not all large format printers are the same, just like with small printers.
Tip 6: If You Have Questions, Ask
If you have any questions at any point of the printing process, you should make sure that you contact the company performing the large format printing services for you. The company should be happy to answer any questions that you have.
Take these 6 tips and start getting amazing large format printing. Your advertising and company imagery will be amazing. A quality to leave your customers speechless.
