Wide Format Printing
The next time you’re driving, count how many service vans and cargo trucks pass by sporting images, logos, and text on their sides. Pass by a basketball stadium in one of the major cities across the United States, and you’ll likely notice an enormous printed photo of some star member of the team mounted on the outside. These, along with many other types of prints, are examples of wide format printing.

What is Wide Format Printing?
Wide Format Printing, often also referred to as “large format printing,” is a type of digital printing using a specially designed wide format printer. Though there are different wide format printer brands and designs to choose from, the printing they do is generally the same. As the name suggests, these printers produce printed imaging with a larger-than-normal surface area.
Wide format printing is distinct from silk screen printing. We achieve brilliant, vivid wide format prints using a special digital printer and typically print on vinyl. While the industry generally regards any printer with a printing width of 12 inches or larger as wide format, at STL Shirt Co., we use a wide format printer that can print up to a whopping 54 inches. Note that this is the widest we can print on one continuous surface, but we can print even larger areas by stitching multiple prints together. So when we say that there is no job too big for us, we mean it.
Wide Format Printing Uses
Wide format printing has many uses. For you as a business, it is your ticket to catching the eyes of your future customers. Most wide format prints are sights you truly cannot miss. The large size, versatility, and quality make wide format printing excellent for many different uses, and the durability of the print makes it uniquely suited for both indoor and outdoor use.
Some of the popular uses of wide format printing are:
Do you want to stand out in your upcoming community parade? Or are you hoping to attract attention at a special event or store opening? Wide format printing will give you a banner of nearly any length that you’ll be happy to hoist.
You may have noticed that videos are a huge part of marketing these days. Videos from companies come in varying degrees of personal and professional. The real pros – as you might have recognized – even use a backdrop for their videos that sports their logo. Use wide format printing for a backdrop that impresses your colleagues and competitors, or make use of one for fun photos for special occasions like proms and weddings.
- Trade Show Booths
For trade shows, festivals, and community events, you have to stand out and make a notable impression to be seen in the sea of other vendors and organizations. Because your first impression in this type of setting is most often visual, what better way to stand out than to set up a booth, tent, or table with wide format printing?
- Wall Decals
Vinyl wall decals created through large format printing are a sleek and simple way to decorate or brand your space. If you’re looking for a way to make your office an even more chill place to work, use wide format printing to create a motivating quote or graphic to display on a blank wall. In retail, use the decals to promote a sale or branded message.
- Window Clings
Tell passersby who you are and what you’re all about with full-size window clings. Wide format printing is capable of producing durable prints for both indoor and outdoor use that will look great on your glass storefront or company van windows.
- Vehicle Wraps
If you’re in a service-based industry and have personnel who travel to clients, you’d be missing a major advertising opportunity if you didn’t make use of the time and distance spent traveling. Go with a simple logo and phone number that motorists can read on the road, or go all-out with a total vehicle wrap with eye-catching photos and graphics.
- Retail Graphics
If you’re in retail, you’re no stranger to signage. Go for something long-lasting and easy to see with wide format printing products.
- Posters & Blueprints
Wide format printing is valuable to businesses not only for its ability to create large, top-quality prints for marketing purposes, but also for its capabilities in internal applications. We supply architects and designers with quality blueprints and designs in the size they need. When you need a larger-than-average poster for safety postings, internal promotions, or policy changes, wide format is the answer.
